German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande have demanded talks with the US by the end of the year following allegations that 35 world leaders' phone calls were monitored by Washington's security agencies. Europe's leaders have turned their wrath on the United States, condemning as unacceptable the alleged “out of control” spying on citizens and governments. French president Francois Hollande said: "What is at stake is preserving our relations with the United States. They should not be changed because of what has happened. But trust has to be restored and reinforced."
The fresh accusations came days after French media reported that the NSA had monitored more than 70 million phone records, text messages and private conversations in France in one month alone, propelling the issue to the top of the agenda at a summit in Brussels.
Not only has the US brought dishonor upon itself, the leadership has disgraced themselves before the people and the world at large. They have lost face and all credibility but will refuse to do that which is honorable. Bringing shame upon the citizenry.
Ohhh folks, this one is heating up! The MSM will not be able to forgo this story. Although she has been spied on since 2002, it appears that Obama personally put his stamp of approval on it in 2010. BUT during his conversation with Merkel, he told her he never even knew she was spied on.
So it looks like Obama lied! Surprise surprise, huh? Merkel will not be pleased. German twitter is heating up to a loud roar.
At this point I'm not the least bit surprised. I really do not think they are going to cease the intrusions. Seems like it's only going to get worse and worse.
This is worse than ANY previous Scandals and Issues of this Government. This will have foreign relations with our allies plummet. The long-term consequences of this in the publics psyche are immeasurable.
America really is in decline, in every way.
