I appreciate every nation spies on each other, damn to not understand this would surely mean thou art gullible.
To actually be exposed doing so and demonstrating not one bit of remorse is despicable. Brazil is a soveriegn state and her President should have the right to access the internet without the good ole U.S of A poking their nose in.
How would you feel if you found out the Russians did exactly the same? Undoubtedly they are, but it's not out there like this case. It's been exposed released to the general public.
How would you feel if it was Russia who was exposed as spying on U.S and her citizens?
The diplomatic and trade relations between the U.S. and Brazil have improved since the inauguration of Dilma in 2011. But the revelation of the NSA eavesdropping that intercepted emails , telephone calls Dilma and their collaborators during the election campaign, and also spied companies where the U.S. government has interests (oil company Petrobras is one of them), inquinou relations and reemerge made the criticism that the U.S. intends to find a way to exploit to their advantage the Brazilian mineral wealth.

What I find funny yet sad is the fact these countries who are acting appalled do the exact same thing.
For a country not to spy on another country in todays day and age is naïve at best. Even friends like to know what the other is thinking on certain issues.
