So, we have a situation right now where France's President Francois Hollande is the only major European ally willing to stand by our side if we decide to move militarily against the Assad Regime for using chemical weapons.
And what report pops up in Der Spiegel today?
Our "glorious" NSA targeted the French foreign ministry in 2010!
'Success Story': NSA Targeted French Foreign Ministryhttp://www.spiegel.de/...
Espionage by the US on France has already strained relations between the two countries, threatening a trans-Atlantic trade agreement. Now a document seen by SPIEGEL reveals that the NSA also spied on the French Foreign Ministry.
America's National Security Agency (NSA) targeted France's Foreign Ministry for surveillance, according to an internal document seen by SPIEGEL.
Dated June 2010, the "top secret" NSA document reveals that the intelligence agency was particularly interested in the diplomats' computer network. All of the country's embassies and consulates are connected with the Paris headquarters via a virtual private network (VPN), technology that is generally considered to be secure.
Accessing the Foreign Ministry's network was considered a "success story," and there were a number of incidents of "sensitive access," the document states.
How dumb can you get, you NSA fools? First you bug the videoconferencing at the U.N., breaking our no-spy agreement there, and now we figure out that you've bugged the foreign ministry of the only European ally willing to stand by us in a really, really tough decision?
Stupid, stupid, stupid. How much more stupid can you get?!
Somebody please put these out-of-control yahoos on a leash!
