Big Brother watching, listening
October 29, 2013 - Jim Smith
Wow! The U.S. doesn't just spy on enemies, the National Security Agency even spies on friendly heads of state ... and some of those friendly nations understandably are getting a little hot under the collar.
It seems the U.S. has been taping the cellphone calls, Internet, sites, emails, etc. of the leaders of Spain, Mexico, France and Germany, all of whom are among those considered allies of the U.S.
Those leaders have proposed sanctions against the U.S., blocking the U.S. from having access to follow the money trails of alleged terrorists and other criminal enterprises ... a blow that could seriously hurt law enforcement efforts.
But the U.S. shouldn't be surprised by the retaliation by allies. Let's face it, if those nations were known to be spying on our president, congressional leaders and heads of U.S. cabinet departments, wouldn't the U.S. responded with even more serious sanctions?
The White House reportedly is considering ending its eavesdropping of leaders of ally nations ... or at least it's saying it's so considering and might actually do so or would that merely be a ploy to satisfy the allies? After all, the NSA is a spy organization and if it isn't spying then there's no reason for its existence.
Whether any of us like it or not, before the whole story is public my guess is the NSA is spying on everyone ... Big Brother is watching and listening!
