All of this NSA surveillance is really starting to piss people off, with a German political opposition leader wanting to see a complete stop of ongoing European Union and United States trade negotiations until the full breach the NSA has done to the world has been unearthed.




Peer Steinbrück, leader of the Social Democratic (SPD) party, told German public television broadcaster, ARD: "I would interrupt the negotiations until the Americans say if German government offices and European institutions are bugged or wiretapped." Steinbrück added: "We don't know if the Americans may be sitting under our desks with some technical devices."


Steinbrück's comments come after it was revealed that the NSA hacked encrypted communications at the United Nations, which we asked "where's the uproar?" because right now, there's none. All before the US steps into another war they can't afford, while spying on the world on the US citizens' tax dollars.
