Obama May Or May Not Have Tapped Angela Merkel's Cell Phone

Tyler Durden's picture

In a stunning claim, Germany's Der Speigel reports that the US targeted Angela Merkel's private mobile phone for years...

  • *MERKEL TOLD OBAMA TAPPING WOULD BE UNACCEPTABLE, SEIBERT SAYS
  • *MERKEL COMPLAINED TO OBAMA ABOUT PHONE SURVEILLANCE: SPIEGEL
  • *MERKEL DEMANDS FULL EXPLANATION FROM OBAMA, SPIEGEL SAYS

So Obama promptly complied:

  • *OBAMA TOLD MERKEL U.S. NOT TAPPING HER PHONE, SPIEGEL SAYS

We await Snowden and Greenwald's clarification...

 

Carney is now denying it all in the WH press conference:

  • *CARNEY SAYS OBAMA, MERKEL SPOKE ABOUT NSA ALLEGATIONS TODAY
  • *CARNEY SAYS OBAMA ASSURED MERKEL HER PHONE NOT MONITORED
  • *CARNEY SAYS MERKEL, OBAMA AGREED TO INTENSIFY COOPERATION
  • *CARNEY: NOT MONITORING, WILL NOT MONITOR MERKEL COMMUNICATIONS
