At a recent EU summit in Brussels, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Francois Hollande conferred about this recent slap in the face by the Americans. The scandal quickly took center stage at the summit and set in motion several heated diplomatic responses, aimed directly at President Obama.
Did they expect that the NSA would limit itself to spying just on Americans? Spying is like a drug addiction for the US government. Once it has started, a lot more is never enough, and now anything justifies being able to score the next big fix.
Because of that addiction, the US is alienating friends around the globe. Someday soon, we will regret it.
