    Be afraid. Be very afraid. We have met the enemy and he is us.

    The only problem here is that France is already a direct part of the EU, and we in the US are not.

    Didn’t the Guardian retract that story about the NSA tapping Eurozone communications?
    Or am I thinking of something else?

    First, Hi, Signe. Thank you for being here.
    .
    As to international spying (which I was going to comment on before I saw Ms. Wilkinson here) Does anyone else remember the time that the US was building a new embassy in Moscow (after the fall)? And we hired local contractors to do the work; remember?
    .
    Then, when it was “done” Intel decided to inspect it and found the place riddles with listening devices honeycombed throughout the entire structure. It was so bad it was comical! The place was barely able to stand it had so many bugs in it!
    .
    We just said,“D’oh” we tore it down and we build a new one.
    .
    It is every nation’s duty to work in their own self interest.

    @PAJ

    Implying that the conservatives do no spying ??
    Another conservative lie..
    But, I wonder, if we had this “wonderful” spying during the previous century, could WW2 have been averted ?

    I’m not at all familiar with the French Constitution. But the U.S. Constitution has a provision against “unreasonable search and seizure” aimed at citizens.
    .
    This ’toon addresses neither of those; it is aimed at allies spying on allies – a questionable activity to say the least.

    Now, we would probably consider both Germany and Japan to generally be allies to the US. But in the early 1940’s, they were the axis (heck, as was even Italy, now like Germany another member of the EU) powers or the “enemy”! So, in spying today’s ally may just be tomorrows enemy, and the spying is generally to attempt to find out the change point from one to the other. And besides, just what is to prevent those very countries from also spying on the US also? So why not just relax as private citizens and enjoy the ride?

    Actually Dave, Barry took the Bush policy and expanded the scope ten-fold.
    I know this is hard to swallow, but it’s the truth, despite what your bumper sticker says.

    How is this news? Go and read the EU commision document A5-0264 from 2002 about how many millions of euroes it has cost european companies that the american government ran industrial espionage on its allies on behalf of american companies. And stop blaming Obama. It was Clinton who started this.

    “And yet, Obama has been called on the carpet for it in Germany, as we speak.”


    Correct, Merkel is/was a tad miffed. But that’s Germany. What was revealed was that France (it’s another European country, fyi ) was doing same as your NSA, and worse, to its own citizens. Therefore, until it’s revealed Germany does the same (and it probably does), the hypocrisy lies just with France, for the moment. (whereas, in all probability, the hypocrisy lies with all since they’re all at it)
