Report: US to consider no-spy deal with allies upset over surveillance

I’m wondering if either side would honestly believe that we’d stop.  Heck, we won’t stop spying on ourselves!!!  What would cause people to believe we’d stop spying on them?

    As Peter Wright laid out in his book, Spycatcher, back in 1985, governments spy on each other constantly. Heck according to Wright, back in the late 1950s early 1960s, the first people the Brits phone tapped were other Brits, then they tapped French Embassy in London.
    I wonder who GCHQ taps these days, and how much goes through unofficial/semi-official/official channels to NSA.

    Sorry Angela it is the nature of the beast.

    Intelligence tells her not to. Diplomacy tells her she must.
