    German Chancellor Confronts Obama About U.S. Spying on Her Cellphone




    President Obama received what sounds like an awkward phone call today from German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who was reportedly upset by rumors that the NSA has monitored her personal cell phone.

    According to a statement released by her spokesman, Merkel insisted in the phone call that “such practices must be stopped immediately” and "made clear that she unequivocally disapproves of such practices, should they be confirmed, and regards them as completely unacceptable."

    The German government reportedly learned of the news during an investigation by German magazine Der Spiegal, which has published several articles based on information provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

    The White House denied that it was actively monitoring Merkel’s phone, though officials stopped short of saying that such eavesdropping had never occurred in the past.

    "The president assured the chancellor that the United States is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor," White House spokesman Jay Carney said, according to the Associated Press.

    "The United States greatly values our close cooperation with Germany on a broad range of shared security challenges."

    He's been saying this for the last few months to several world leaders. The wording his always so suspect (as it is here). Honestly, how he has the balls to pull this shit is amazing. It's no fucking wonder everyone hates us.

    I used to like him. Now he's all form over substance. Weak. Almost smarmy with his charm that seems to be used only to pacify the few people left who'll fall for it. I don't hate him, but a quip and a smile is no substitute for a real leader.

    well, your post was two sentences about obama and how he has the balls to pull this shit and then concludes with 'it's no fucking wonder everyone hates us', you can see how we would get that impression, no?
