I don't know if there was already a thread about this article Link but it makes me wonder how much truth there is to the US spying on it's people and allies. There has been alot of acusations aimed at US lately, especially with the entire Snowden debacle.
Some of this may be just consiparcy theory, but I think with all the international scandals happening right now some of it must be true.
In this particular case a german newspaper acused US of spying on EU and given how strong the EU response was against US makes me believe that they must have known someting more then even the newspaper says. No one would demand imediate explanations and threaten with delaying some treaty just because of a newspaper said something unless there is more to this.
I'm curios how this will end up.
