    The only think I am aware of is DER SPIEGEL report.  But for the justice minister of Germany and the president of the european parliament to react that strongly, they must have seen it and it must be shocking.  

    This may be much more serious than what it looks at first glance.   It may really threaten the traditional US-europe alliance.

    •  The US still has many military bases in Europe (3+ / 0-)

      especially in Germany.   Perhaps this will give a push for the US to close up the bases and leave.  It's long overdue, but kind of sad in a way.  A lot of poor-to-middle class Americans got to see Europe though their military tours there.  Now only the rich will be able to go.  It will further isolate America from the rest of the world.

        What a loss.

        Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

          … 15 years and who still didn't speak much more German than you might get from American Forces Network's little radio spots featuring a "German phrase of the day."

          As cultural exchange, it was something of a washout.
