La révélation, par l'hebdomadaire allemand Der Spiegel, que l'Union européenne fait partie des cibles écoutées par l'agence de sécurité américaine jette plus qu'un froid.

EU Parliament "Shocked" At NSA "Bugging" Diplomatic Offices; Threatens Trade Talks

The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, said he was "deeply worried and shocked about the allegations of U.S. authorities spying on EU offices" made in a report published Sunday by Der Spiegel. The latest round of NSA 'transparency' suggests U.S. intelligence agents bugged EU offices on both sides of the Atlantic, leaving some EU lawmakers calling for concrete sanctions against Washington - calling for an immediate investigation into the claims and suggesting that recently launched negotiations on a trans-Atlantic trade treaty should be put on hold.

Pffff. Quel spectacle...
1) Les USA espionnent l'Europe. Quel scoop ! Les USA espionnent tout le monde.
2) L'Europe prend ses ordres de Washington et l'outrance surjouée de ce concours d'indignation en dit long sur la réalité. Il ne se passera absolument rien, et l'accord de libre échange sera signé, sous la dictée de Washington.
3) L'Europe ne rêve que de ça : de la démocrature US. De cette transformation de la République en Empire...

D'ailleurs, voici un très bon résumé dans ce post ci de la démocrature US :
Guest Post: America - Government By Terror, Torture and Tyranny

America governs lawlessly. Out-of-control rogues run things. Conditions go from bad to worse. Tyranny threatens everyone. So does possible global war.

Fear-mongering, saber rattling, hot wars, proxy ones, drone ones, geopolitical ones, financial ones, anti-populist ones, mass incarceration, censorship, lawless sanctions, subversion, sabotage, targeted assassinations, mass murder, cyber-war, and horrific draconian harshness reflect out-of control governance gone mad.

Lying is official policy. So is state terror. Independent governments aren’t tolerated. They’re targeted. Regime change is prioritized. World peace is threatened. Humanity’s menaced. Survival’s uncertain.

Daily revelations explain more. War is called peace. State-sponsored assassins are called freedom fighters. Real ones are called terrorists.

Capital has divine rights. Monied interests run things. Plundering the earth for profit is prioritized. Popular needs go begging. Social America’s dying. Poverty, unemployment, hunger, homelessness and human misery go unaddressed. Corporate rights alone matter.

Democracy’s a four-letter word. Out-of-control power is unaccountable. Rule of law principles are mocked. Tyranny’s the law of the land. Advancing America’s imperium matters most.

Workers are exploited. They’re unprotected. Human and civil rights are sacrificed. Wealth, power and privilege are served. Militarized control supports them. Nonbelievers aren’t tolerated.

Torture is official policy. Gitmo is America’s public face. Innocent detainees suffer. So do many others. Thousands of political prisoners fill America’s gulag. It’s the world’s largest. It operates globally. Mercy isn’t in Washington’s vocabulary.

Diktat power rules. Police state terror threatens everyone. Freedom’s fast disappearing. Dissent’s not tolerated. Heroic whistleblowers are criminalized.

Even retired four star generals aren’t safe. More on that below.
Journalists are spied on. So is everyone worldwide. Big Brother watches everyone. It’s no longer fiction.

Censorship prevents truth and full disclosure. Managed news misinformation substitutes. Students are debt entrapped for life. Millions have no futures. An entire generation’s lost.

Madness substitutes for sanity. Unconscionable wrongdoing persists. America’s unsafe to live in. Oblivion awaits. Most people are too out of touch to notice. Others are dismissive.

Failure to act responsibly matters. It lets Washington get away with murder and much more.

Rogues running America take full advantage. Who knows what’s next.

The Pentagon’s former second in command’s being investigated. General James (Hoss) Cartwright allegedly leaked information higher ups want suppressed.

Cyberwar is official US policy. In spring 2010, Iranian intelligence discovered Stuxnet malware contamination. Its Bushehr nuclear facility was affected. US/Israeli cyber-war bore full responsibility.

Cartwright perhaps explained. He ran cyber-operation Olympic Games. Obama ordered stepped up attacks. Targeting Iran is prioritized.

Perhaps there’s hope if retired four star generals become whistleblowers. Maybe other insiders will be emboldened to act. Legions more than ever are needed. Hopefully many will come forward responsibly.

Edward Snowden provided a vital service. He’s a hero in his own time. He’s globally recognized. He deserves praise, not prosecution. History won’t forget him. He revealed what everyone needs to know.

Unprecedented global spying is official US policy. It’s lawless. Spies “R” us defines it. Police states operate this way. America’s by far the worst. It’s unmatched in human history. No one’s safe anywhere any time.

Shoot the messenger. Snowden’s hunted. He’s a wanted man. Washington wants him arrested. It wants him prosecuted. It wants him imprisoned. It wants him silenced. Perhaps it wants him dead.

It wants information he knows suppressed. London’s Guardian revealed it. It plans telling more. On June 28, it headlined “US army blocks access to Guardian website to preserve ‘network hygiene.’ ”

It wants truth suppressed. It wants its message alone circulated. “The US army has admitted to blocking access to parts of the Guardian website for thousands of defense personnel across the country.”

“A spokesman said the military was filtering out reports and content relating to government surveillance programs to preserve ‘network hygiene’ and prevent any classified material appearing on unclassified parts of its computer systems.”

Pentagon officials lied. Censorship is official US policy. NETCOM On-Line Communication Services operates from San Jose, CA. It’s an Internet service provider.

Spokesman Gordon Van Vleet said it filtered “some access to press coverage and online content about NSA leaks.”

“The Department of Defense routinely takes preventive ‘network hygiene’ measures to mitigate unauthorized disclosures of classified information onto DoD unclassified networks.”

An Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) spokesman said policy affects hundreds of defense facilities. Doing so suggests far worse future policy.

Washington may block anti-government content. It may do so routinely. Alternative media sites may be targeted. Vital truths more than ever may be suppressed.

Revealing them responsibly risks being criminalized. So may discussing what’s already known. Pointing fingers the right way is dangerous. Doing so risks being charged with aiding and abetting America’s enemies.

Van Vleet added:

“We make every effort to balance the need to preserve information access with operational security, however there are strict policies and directives in place regarding protecting and handling classified information.”

“Until declassified by appropriate officials, classified information – including material released through an unauthorized disclosure – must be treated accordingly by DoD personnel. If a public website displays classified information,” blocking it will follow.

“Classified” includes vital information people have a right to know. Suppressing it reflects police state harshness. Rogue states operate this way. It bears repeating. America’s by far the worst.

According to an unnamed Pentagon spokesman:

“The Guardian website is NOT being blocked by DoD. The Department of Defense routinely takes preventative measures to mitigate unauthorized disclosures of classified information onto DoD unclassified networks.”

On June 25, Guardian editors headlined “Edward Snowden: in defense of whistleblowers,” saying:

He’s no traitor. America’s First Amendment matters. It “prevents prior restraint and affords a considerable measure of protection to free speech.”

Obama violates its letter and spirit. He’s done so by “show(ing) a dismaying aggression in not only criminalizing leaking and whistle blowing, but also recently placing reporters under surveillance – tracking them and pulling their phone and email logs in order to monitor their sources for stories that were patently of public importance.”

Thanks to Snowden, we know more about what NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake called “a vast, systemic institutionalized, industrial-scale Leviathan surveillance state that has clearly gone far beyond the original mandate to deal with terrorism.”

Snowden is today’s Daniel Ellsberg. Releasing the Pentagon Papers got him targeted. He also faced Espionage Act charges.

He might have gotten life in prison. He was lucky. Gross government misconduct saved him. His 1973 trial collapsed. At the time, judge William Byrne, Jr. ruled:

“The totality of the circumstances of this case which I have only briefly sketched offend a sense of justice.”

“The bizarre events have incurably infected the prosecution of this case.”

Federal judges today don’t speak this way. Ellsberg later said:

“The public is lied to every day by the President, by his spokespeople, by his officers.”

“If you can’t handle the thought that the President lies to the public for all kinds of reasons, you couldn’t stay in the government at that level”

“The fact is Presidents rarely say the whole truth – essentially, never say the whole truth – of what they expect and what they’re doing and what they believe and why they’re doing it and rarely refrain from lying, actually, about these matters.”

Ellsberg’s a modern day hero. So is Snowden. Washington fears ugly truths revealed. Doing so arouses public anger.

Perhaps it emboldens others to tell more. Coming forward threatens America’s imperial ambitions. Preventing them responsibly matters most.

  1. Oh mon Dieu, la NSA espionnait l'UE ? Je suis outré. Moi qui croyait à l'Europe contrepoids des US

  2. Ça c'était avant !!

  3. Je ne suis pas sûr que ça reste un fait mineur. En tout cas dans les relations diplomatiques.
    Des fois je me demande si les élites ne sont pas plus naïves que leur peuple. Nous, ça ne nous surprend pas que les US espionnent la planète. Mais pour nos dirigeants, nombre d'entre eux ont dû tomber de leur siège, et puis c'est toujours plus déplaisant quand on apprend pour soi. Tu quoque mi fili !

    1. Effectivement il y a un petit bug dans la matrice avec cette affaire. Mais quand tu regardes le ton employé par les médias principaux, c'est plutôt dans le sens de l'orgeuil blessé. Je ne crois pas que le français moyen (enfin l'européen moyen pour le coup) en vienne à faire la déduction qu'on est en train de se faire complètement arnaquer par cette ue et sa monnaie fantôme. Mais un bug de plus c'est toujours bon à prendre.

      Mais, encore plus interressant, certains politiques ont demandé l'arrêt des discussions sur le marché transatlantique. Mélenchon, un des seuls à combattre cette cochonnerie depuis toujours (avec Asselineau sans doute). Et étrangement, Daniel Cohn-Bendit.

  4. Quelle mascarade !

    On fait mine de "découvrir" que la NSA "écoute". Et le programme Echelon alors ?

    Et déjà en 2002 on apprenait que le parlement UE avait été hacké.

    Bref, du foutage de gueule intégral.

  5. Nous sommes là dans un jeu de rôle afin de semer le doutes chez quelques sceptiques, ainsi on fait les gros yeux afin de mieux se réconcilier par la suite et faire semblant.

  6. Attention, ça monte d'un cran en Syrie. Le story telling va crescendo...

    On en arrive à une situation desespérée à Homs...

    "Syrie : les rebelles acculés à Homs, l'Arabie saoudite demande l'envoi d'armes"

    C'est le signe que l'Empire va donner le coup de grace, de manière imminente.


    J'ai du mal à comprendre la manoeuvre. On sait très bien que Hollande, tout le PS et l'UMP se coucheront devant le traité transatlantique au final. On dirait qu'ils essaient de marchander leur exception culturelle pour jeter un petit quelque chose à manger au peuple. Regardez comme je défends bien la souveraineté de la France. J'ai tous vendu, les usines, l'armée, la frappe nucléaire, les châteaux, les Eglises, la cave de l'Elysée, l'or (?) mais j'ai sauvé le festival de Cannes, pas mal non ?
