Spying on Friends

Just a quick comment here as outside my cozy study, autumn whips itself into a frenzy.

It’s a shame the Americans don’t know exactly who their friends are. Spying on Angela, Francois and co, shows that data is collected for the sake of it – and for purposes beyond national security. For if it is reasoned that one must listen in on everybody’s phone calls, read everybody’s emails and text messages in order to catch the next terror attack in its infancy, why would one bug the phones of other “free world” leaders?

Do they really believe Angela or Francois are in cohoots with terrorist, helping them plan the next massacre?
