Let's face it. Each country is spying on each other.

Thanks for posting this JL! Yes, and in fact my country has not only condemned it-along with Brasil-but we've also formed special committee for detailed investigation and our former Minister of Justice has filed law suit for breaking these international human rights.

I was right now working on posting yet another "Snowden" story, haven't seen it on here yet-about that feared "doomsday files"

You are welcome Angelika, Rhonda, Franshisca and Dave. Hopefully the NSA secret court's discovery that NSA had gone beyond what had been authorized coupled with international laws and related dynamics will lead to some change for the better.

You may know the US had sent Sen. Murphy to Germany to smoothen the rage over all thy spying scandal, particularly what became termed "Handygate" over here (handy= mobile phone)-and it turned out a typical "Murphy's law" - things went wrong! Now Europe has sent a powerful lady advocate to the US to talk business on that, as we will NOT accept that scale of spying, breaching all European laws.

There is endless spying since the dawn of time, in the electronic age it gets overly extensive. Who knows what they will be up to fifty years from now? Oh, oh!
