    Germany arrests Suspected Double Agent spying for U.S.: Lawmakers

    An employee of Germany's BND foreign intelligence agency has been arrested on suspicion of spying for the United States, two lawmakers with knowledge of the affair told Reuters on Friday. The German Federal Prosecutor's office said in a statement that a 31-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of being a foreign spy, but it gave no further details. Investigations were continuing, it said.

    The case risks further straining ties with Washington, which were damaged by revelations last year of mass surveillance of German citizens by the U.S. National Security Agency, including the monitoring of Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone.

    The man, who is German, has admitted passing to an American contact details about a special German parliamentary committee set up to investigate the spying revelations made by former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, the politicians said.

    Both lawmakers are members of the nine-person parliamentary control committee, whose meetings are confidential, and which is in charge of monitoring the work of German intelligence agencies.....snip~

    It appears we will be having some more trouble with Germany. They have summoned the US Ambassador to give a swift explanation. Even though they state he is suspected. I think once he admitted to any connection.....puts him past just being suspected of anything. What say ye?

    Its almost like every time one of Obama's numerous scandals dies down in the news, something thrusts it back into the spotlight.

    What can one say, it would seem to me that our intel agencies should have been on the P's and Q's. Or there is another possibility, if this guy was recruited by someone posing as an American intel agent to further divide Germany and the U.S.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Well.....I can understand. But this is not good at all.....and not now, not with what is going on with Syria and Iraq. Nor with anything dealing with Putin.

    No wonder Putin was making nicey nice today.

    I think spying for another country is treason and is one of the most despicable things someone can do. So I have no problem with Germany punishing this spy.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
