Although he denied it, Obama has instructed the NSA to bug the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and pipe the results directly to the White House. More comments at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/social/frizztext/us-spying-angela-merkel_n_4166326_295598020.html
Son House sang:
“…Don’t you mind people grinning in your face
Don’t you mind people grinning in your face
There’s one thing to bear in mind
A true friend is hard to find…”
I’ve noticed a lot of grinning coming from the White House…and I’ll leave it at that!
It’s so true what Son House sang, and this will always come back and grin into your face.
Obama, himself, has nothing to do with what the NSA did….NSA, CIA are big powers in the USA and make many things to influence the foreign policy…. Presidents don’t have the power that we can imagine with all the lobbies and the staff behind us. I don’t know when it began to change but Bush jr or Obama were often puppets….Look at the poeple Obama has in his staff, you will understand.
France was a target for NSA too …
about comments of (typical?) US-readers:
and all the MPs in the US are with the NSA…. what a surprise !?
And all these leaders are hypocrite, because we all spy our “friends” for political and economical reasons… But NSA is more efficient, spying leader’s phone 😀
Perhaps Europe is just jealous of the higher technical developments in the U.S.!

…who doesn’t mind people grinning in their face!
A great great blues man, and my favorite!
That’s exactly the song I tried sending you the other day. Son House is just too good.
The way things are I am afraid is that we the little people will have to grin and bear this whole mess.
Sad, sad, sad
And what now?
I like if they read what I’m thinking – could make them wiser…
Deception seems to be the first order of business in politics these days. Or should I say the business of politics.
