We’re spying on Europe (and they are p*ssed)

A history of US spying on Europe in the Cold War period and after. The quote that matters is from a former East German Stasi official who is both appalled and jealous of US intel capability: “It is the height of naivete to think that once collected this information won’t be used…This is the nature of secret government organizations. The only way to protect the people’s privacy is not to allow the government to collect their information in the first place.”
