    BBC News - Germany accused of spying on Kerry and Clinton

    Germany's foreign intelligence agency eavesdropped on US Secretary of State John Kerry and his predecessor Hillary Clinton, German media reports say.
    Der Spiegel magazine says the calls were collected accidentally and the recordings were destroyed immediately.
    Mr Kerry has reportedly spoken to his German counterpart, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, about the claims.
    Correspondents say the reports will embarrass Germany after a row about the US spying on Chancellor Angela Merkel.
    OK, accidental, huh? What a shame, Germany, after all your uppity outrage regarding the NSA.

    The fact is, all nations spy on each other, if they can. Much ado about nothing, that NSA scandal.

    How shocking, who could have foreseen this.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968

    Assuming sarcasm here - I know, spies spying? What's next? Politicians attending fund raisers?

    But it should throw a little water on the outrage over spying on Merkel.

    I hope whomever had to watch Clinton got hazardous duty pay and a good therapist.
