Reports that the US National Intelligence Agency, aided by Denmark, spied on top European politicians finds it “extremely serious” if true, the French secretary of state for European affairs has said.

The statement comes a day after European media reported that the NSA allegedly spied on European politicians, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

But also on German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier (who previously served as minister of foreign affairs), with the help of Denmark, from 2012 to 2014.

According to Danish public broadcaster Danmarks Radio, the US National Security Agency (NSA) tapped into Danish telecommunications cables to spy on officials in Germany, Sweden, Norway, and France.

The Danish military intelligence services are said to have helped the USA. The French secretary of state for European affairs said the situation could have consequences in terms of cooperation with the United States.

It goes without saying that the United States of America spies on not only its adversaries but also its allies?

If there is a U.S. embassy present, then its primary function is to carry out espionage. The laws of these United States prohibit spying on U.S. citizens but federal agents ignore these laws and spy on us anyway.

There are no laws to prevent spying on foreign persons abroad so there are no restrictions on what federal agents can and will do. They even hacked the global banking system.

The only aspect that is new is the Danes facilitating US spying. There was no serious response to the US spying in the first place and I doubt if more than indignation will be expressed against the Danes now to placate the peanut gallery.

Meanwhile behind the scenes it will be business as usual with countries globally performing favors to protect their own interests. If money doesn’t work then coercion is a useful sweetener.
