Germans seek transparency from government on US spying

Germans are seeking transparency after their government has offered a limited response to reports that the United States systematically and actively spied on the country, Press TV, reports.

The demands for answers from Chancellor Angela Merkel and her government have come after reports show that Germany was the most spied country in Europe by the US National Security Agency (NSA) where NSA recorded 60 million calls and internet transactions on peak days.

“Half of the people in Germany is very unhappy with the situation that our friends spy at us and they ask our government, why do you allow such things? Should you not ask the United States to stop this? But our government tells us that there is no problem,” said Stefan Liebich from the Left Party.

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed that the large-scale surveillance by the NSA was not only for the purpose of security but that the agency also had a financial strategy, as it monitored markets in order to make financial decisions.

A report published last month showed that the NSA explored German market demands as it spied on Germans’ medical records to see which medicines they consumed.

5. Huge K&R. Two reasons for this monstrous system:


1) Total information awareness for PROFIT.

2) A surveillance state to eliminate dissent by those being exploited for PROFIT.

6. Profit? Who benefited?

On its face that is blatantly illegal, and unlike other follies the NSA has been doing that is sure to piss off many of the elites who don't have access to such info, if it really is the case. Need to see more details but the accusations are extremely serious

10. I completely agree this is very serious.

I can't really tell the political leaning of PressTV, but they seem left of center.

Have you heard of them before? Maybe Euro-based.

11. +10000 And not just Utah. All information obtained from spying must be completely destroyed.

They had no right to access it in the first place.


The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
