(Reuters) - The Central Intelligence Agency was involved in a spying operation against Germany that led to the alleged recruitment of a German intelligence official and has prompted renewed outrage in Berlin, two U.S. officials familiar with the matter said on Monday.

CIA Director John Brennan has asked to brief key members of the U.S. Congress on the matter, which threatens a new rupture between Washington and a close European ally, one of the officials said.

"If the reports are correct it would be a serious case," Merkel told a news conference in Beijing, standing next to Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

Considering the NSA scandals, not a huge surprise, yet still another scandal like that does not have a good effect on the relationships between the nations. In my eyes, it just shows lack of respect for allies - the NSA scandal already showed it, the latest incidence shows that the stance stayed the same.

But well, we´ll see how the situation culminates.

Bump. The United States really just cannot seem to stop making an ass out of themselves. Right in the face of Germany AGAIN.
