NSA Spied On European Union States At Brussels And UN, Der Spiegel Says
ib times ^ | 6/29 | Eric Linton

Posted on 06/30/2013 4:32:06 AM PDT by RummyChick

The United States bugged European Union offices and gained access to EU internal computer networks, the German magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday, citing NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden.

Der Spiegel cited from a September 2010 "top secret" National Security Agency document that it said the fugitive former NSA contractor had taken with him to Hong Kong and which its journalists had seen in part, Reuters reported.

The document outlines how the NSA bugged offices and spied on EU internal computer networks in Washington and at the United Nations, not only listening to conversations and phone calls but also gaining access to documents and emails. The document explicitly called the EU a "target."

The revelation is the latest in a cascade of disclosures set off by Snowden's flight.

Hardly. Brussels is the center of the EU, and that is where all the ‘controls’ originate.

The people behind BHO2 want to control the world. They are, after all, Globalists, and are acting more and more obsessive. Spying on allies and business competitors is all part of that drive for a New World Order with themselves in command.

Sick bastards!

There was a gentleman’s agreement about spying in Europe during the Cold War. It involved parties, lots of high quality wine in the suburbs of Paris, London, Geneva, etc. There was some risk, but not much. There was no connection to fighting terrorism and in fact the Cold War spying mentality was detrimental to fighting terrorism since the methods and sources were completely inapplicable.

One-world SDRs by the IMF, one-world communications control by the NSA.

Liberty...and now it’s gone....

Hey, why are they upset? The NSA doesn’t listen to anything right? I’m sure these foreign entities are just as safe from intrusion as a private citizens are.

There is nothing you do that socialists like Obama don’t want to know about. Knowledge is power, and he wants it all.

It’s pretty obvious that this spying network is used mainly for commercial purposes. And that can be read as the commercial purposes of the campaign contributors of the regime. All this technology is useless against cave dwelling terrorists who rely on couriers to communicate.

Echelon - I was just rereading it - one can see how easily people in a position of power could be blackmailed...

Uh, this what we pay them to do. Do you folks honestly believe foreign countries don’t spy on us? Has the KGB (FSB) gone out of business? The Mossad? The DGSE? These folks are doing, or attempting to do, what we do. No, I’m not referring to domestic spying, but intelligence gathering overseas. This Brussels incident is exactly what NSA is supposed to!

Listening is not the goal.
Information, used to manipulate, coerce, pressure, blackmail control, is the goal.

If our leaders do not act in the Citizens best interests, but only act in their own interests, then everyone is in trouble.

Why does 0bama have multiple alias?
Why was a forged Birth Certificate presented to the public?
Who forged the document?
What does the true BC disclose?

The answer the the forged Birth pdf will put many other questions into context

Since there have been a multitude of US secrets that somehow “got out” over the past 5 years, it got me to suspecting the regime’s complicity in this. Now, clearly there have been leaks before this regime.... but....

The agenda of this one aligns with leakage. They are out to take down the US a few notches (perhaps much more than that...), destroying every aspect of our society they can lay their grimy hands on. They want to normalize the nations of the world, as they are globullists and one-worlders. I would be surprised if they *weren’t* taking down American intelligence as well...

Not to mention the fact is a make work project for defense contractors who rake in hundreds of billions in taxpayer dollars.

Good questions. But you will NEVER find out.

I think it has a lot less to do with Obama than it has to do with out of control government and globalism as a whole. Obama isn’t smart enough or powerful enough to run this show.

We don’t have national secrets because globalist think tanks are full of former state department officials along with people like George Soros, Kofi Annan, Mohammad El Baredai.....

The NSA has gone rouge and need to be quelled. I bet the boys in the CIA would be happy to help.

Did we spy on Saudi Arabia and the Muslims like we spied on eu? Of course not, Obama does not want to get his muslim buddies in trouble

Instead of spying on the real enemy, we anger nations that have nothing to do with terrorism(belgium seriously?) by spying on them and let the real enemies off the hook

Gee. I wonder who could have ordered that?

America is so deeply mired in a quicksand filled swamp that it will never get out.

Relegate Obomba to the dustbin of history.
