Happy Birthday…

As the news of friends spying on friends ratchets up a notch (or a billion), it seems rather disingenuous that nations are reacting with calculated anger. According to news reports, France’s response to reports of US spying on them was harshly worded, but spare, and that subsequent announcements were milder in tone. All this, even as French lawmakers are moving to vastly expand their own program of surveillance. And (shocker) Germany is also being accused of spying on friends, after having flipped their wig when it was disclosed that we had spied on them. Advertisements
