    So long as there arent treaties which say they wont. We have many treaties with France, the UN, NATO, that regulate actions between nations.

    The NSA supposedly has acres of super computing power. Imagine the speed.

    These Snowden leaks have lost their shock value. Not condoning the spying, but still......

    And about Mexico, spying on a large, unstable nation that borders us doesn't bother me much.

    Don't tell the internet activists that.

    No doubt they have their own custom Government version, that we paid for.

    BBC News - Merkel calls Obama about 'US spying on her phone'


    Are the US spying on the German chancellors mobile phone? She was concerned enough to contact President Obama.

    Just curious, if we are, is there some sort of law against a nation spying on the leaders of another nation? Seems it would be expected, de rigueur.
