US Govt Spied On German Parliamentary Investigation Into US Govt Spying On Germans

Similar to NSA’s Spying On U.S. News Media to See What They Knew About NSA Spying

The German Parliament is holding hearings into NSA spying on Germany. (Senior NSA veterans Bill Binney and Thomas Drake provided testimony).

A German intelligence officer from the BND has been arrested for spying on the Parliamentary hearings … or and on behalf of the U.S. government.

Glenn Greenwald tweets:

That’d be the ultimate irony: US Govt spied on German parliamentary investigation into US Govt spying on Germans

This is similar to the NSA’s spying on American news organizations starting in 2002 to see what they knew – and planning to report – about NSA’s mass surveillance program against Americans.

    Will the Europeans please stop there lederhosen dances and admit to a fait accompli. With Deutsche Bank in a bigger financial hole than BNP and Societe Generale, they have to dance the US tune!!! There ain’t no de Gaul or G Estaing with a nationalist or European fervour. They are colonies of a special type with occupation of a special type (how they must be seething about Ukraine – when they were too provincial to take their boxer Kitshko to fight the Nazi right wing to protect their gas)… they are not sufficiently in charge nor have the means to even protect Snowden… and they knew this was happening it is only now they cannot PRETEND it is not happening… They not part of the 5iS and want to be in the club… forgetting their lessons of social engineering… how quick they forget… but with what they tolerate in Palestine, why is anyone surprised…? America is just getting started, so Europe should either shape up or shut up… WE ARE THE BORG, RESISTANCE IS FUTILE…
