The U.S. National Security Agency has been conducting high-level digital and phone surveillance against top French government officials, including the nation's three most recent presidents, the media outlet Wikileaks has revealed by publishing "top secret" intelligence reports that include targeting information and specific intercepts gathered over the last decade.
Who knew the term " Country French " was a sweeping NSA spying program and not a description of a style of a popular cuisine. To the people of France all I can say is, " welcome to the master's table and, of course, bon appetit. "
Bingo. I must speculate the real purpose of such espionage is to gather evidence for blackmail. How else to explain the supine behavior of the European political class in the face of obvious incompetence and corruption in Washington?
USA! USA! Winning the hearts and minds of our friends and enemies around the world either by war and/or spying! We are EXCEPTIONAL!
Now you know...China is not going to stay far behind...from NSA....The Economic War at its best....
