It seems our European friends have a case of the madz. For some reason, they don’t like us spying on them.
Emerging allegations that America’s National Security Agency bugged and hacked European Union offices stoked tension Sunday between U.S. and European officials, with German prosecutors announcing they are probing the claims.
The allegations were carried in a report by the German magazine Der Spiegel. They are the latest claims to surface regarding NSA surveillance activity, as on-the-lam leaker Edward Snowden feeds a series of sensitive documents to the media. Der Spiegel did not specifically say how it obtained the information.
European Parliament President Martin Schulz, in response, demanded a clarification from the NSA about the alleged program.
“I am deeply worried and shocked about the allegations of U.S. authorities spying on EU offices,” Schulz said in a statement.
But, see, this is all a simple misunderstanding. See, we know we have to spy on someone in order to prevent acts of terrorism over here in the US. But, the Europeans know full well that we can’t just spy on terrorists. That would be wrong. And, just to make sure that we’re not tempted to be wrong, we’ll simply spy on a continent which doesn’t produce many terrorists.
Again, we know we can’t just spy on the Mid-east and other places prevalent with Muslim terrorists, so we have to spy on other places. Now, get over your madz, and realize this is all for our own good.
