Germany may be looking to overtake the Unite Kingdom as America’s number one vassal state.
German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, knowing that the NSA was actively spying on her own country’s corporations, remained curiously silent.
According to the Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) overheard communications of European companies and politicians for the US’s NSA.
The problem for Germany is that their Chancellor knew what was going on and simply decided to allow it to contnue, ultimately placing American intelligence over her own country’s privacy rights.
Merkel’s Office did nothing to stop the spying activities…even though it was informed about US espionage attempts in 2008.

According to the available information, the NSA was trying to get information about the multinational arms companies EADS and Eurocopter. This was contrary to German interests, and the BND had rejected the requests at that time.
However, now it has become clear that the BND assisted the US National Security Agency (NSA) in spying on European targets over the last few years.
The revelation was perceived by many German politicians as “scandalous”. They demanded an end to such ‘collaboration’ with the US and argued that the chancellor’s office should probably have been aware of the spy agencies’ cooperation.
