Here is some good news coming out of Germany. It is due time to cut off the covert operations and covert intelligence unit of the machine man that is policing the world.

If the information Germany provides the U.S puts German citizens at risk then they should have every right to re-assess their position with U.S intelligence.



In addition, German courts are investigating possible charges against the CIA, US Secret Service for aiding and abiding in the murder of a German citizen. The accused suppliers of the intelligence which led to the murder are Germany’s Secret Service, the BND, which is also under investigation for criminal charges in the incident.
By law, any death of a German national by violent means, at home or abroad, must be investigated by German authorities.

Did anyone ever stop to ask why that person was in the immediate vicinity of those terrorists? That is not an exactly good region to be in to begin with, so, consorting with the enemy...maybe?

If you read the linked article you will see that he was already a suspected terrorist, and was suspected of participating in an attack...Even if he was a German citizen, that doesn't mean he cannot be a terrorist. I am sure nothing will come of the investigation, although I have no clue what result this will have on German-American intelligence cooperation.

Didn't work too good in WWII. I don't think we need their permission to get their intelligence.

It’s called Casualties of War get over it!

Can you imagine what the casualties numbers in the bush led war on Iraq was...I stopped at 200,000?

Can you imagine the casualties numbers on the Palestine people when they get cut off from food and medicine from ‘Israel’ as well as the bombs being dropped on them...and their worried about 1 freaking German citizen.

Sensationalist claptrap -


By law, any death of a German national by violent means, at home or abroad, must be investigated by German authorities.


so it's a routine and requierd investigation into why he died - there's no actual expression of outrage anywhere in the arricle, and I bet dollars to a knob of goat dung they'll find no reason to change a thing since the system seems to have worked perfectly well.

Look through my posting history and you will see I am not just worried about one German citizen. I am not even discussing the death I am discussing American - German relations.

Not all to surprising. These last few years Germany has been trying to increase it's stance in Eastern European nations and with Russia, while distancing itself from Western Europe and the USA.
