  •  Why would this be surprising? (0+ / 0-)

    nations spy on each other.

    I will say this - We (the United States of America) have four friends in this world - The Canadians, the Brits, the Australians, and the New Zealanders.  Thats it.  The rest are as temporary as a Facebook friend and they would cut our throats in a minute.  

    Now having said that, in 1990 we closed the German school at the Defense Language Institute.  With German reunification we no longer had a military mission that included German.  By that act a portion of the NSA was deprived of German linguists.  

    It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it. Robert E. Lee
