Germans end investigation into Merkel phone tapping

More NSA spying in Germany — RT interview

In the wake of what appears to be anoth­er NSA leak­er, it has been repor­ted that, while Angela Merkel’s phone is appar­ently off-lim­its, her close polit­ic­al circle is now being tar­geted.

Last week­end the Bild am Son­ntag news­pa­per in Ger­many repor­ted that a seni­or NSA oper­at­ive had made these claims. This report has been repeated in media around the world.

While we have yet to see any cor­rob­or­a­tion, this may indeed indic­ate that more staff in the glob­al intel­li­gence com­munity are find­ing the cour­age to speak out about eth­ic­al con­cerns in the wake of the Snowden dis­clos­ures last year.
