President Barack Obama was told about monitoring of German Chancellor in 2010 and allowed it to continue, says German newspaper.
President Barack Obama was personally informed about secret US monitoring of Angela Merkel three years ago, according to latest reports on the eavesdropping affair.
The President allowed the National Security Agency (NSA) to continue spying on the German chancellor, it was claimed.
Mr Obama was told of the secret monitoring of Mrs Merkel by General Keith Alexander, the head of the NSA, in 2010, according to Bild am Sonntag, a German newspaper.
Obama did not stop the action at that time but allowed it to continue, a US intelligence source close to the NSA operation told the Sunday newspaper.
The White House later commissioned an extensive NSA dossier about Mrs Merkel, according to Bild....
The latest twists in the US spying scandal come after President Obama reportedly assured Mrs Merkel during a telephone conversation last week that he was unaware the NSA had been spying on her....

So it wasn’t Bush’s fault?
The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.
He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he pretends he is exclusively.
What he isn't, not a genetic drop of, is 'African-American,' the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships. He hasn't a single ancestor who was a slave. Instead, his Arab ancestors were slave owners. Slave-trading was the main Arab business in East Africa for centuries until the British ended it.
Let that sink in: Obama is not the descendant of slaves, he is the descendant of slave owners. Thus he makes the perfect Liberal Messiah. It's something Hillary doesn't understand - how some complete neophyte came out of the blue and stole the Dem nomination from her.
Obamamania is beyond politics and reason. It is a true religious cult, whose adherents reject Christianity yet still believe in Original Sin, transferring it from the evil of being human to the evil of being white.
Thus Obama has become the white liberals' Christ, offering absolution from the Sin of Being White. There is no reason or logic behind it, no faults or flaws of his can diminish it, no arguments Hillary could make of any kind can be effective against it. The absurdity of Hypocrisy Clothed In Human Flesh being their Savior is all the more cause for liberals to worship him: Credo quia absurdum, I believe it because it is absurd.
Thank heavens that the voting majority of Americans remain Christian and are in no desperate need of a phony savior. He is ridiculous and should not be taken seriously by any thinking American.
So who initiated the whole thing? I suspect Clinton.
Explain that President Transparency!
So it wasnt Bushs fault?Don't be silly.
Everything bad that happens anywhere in the world is ALWAYS Bush's fault.
But, Barky looks good in his empty suit!
“The latest twists in the US spying scandal come after President Obama reportedly assured Mrs Merkel during a telephone conversation last week that he was unaware the NSA had been spying on her....”
this did not come from Snowden, sounds like more cracks in the dam at the No-Such-Agency
Angela, don’t worry, you are safe.
bo doesn’t know German.
” ... was personally informed ...”
Huh! No way! Not the I-know-nothing president.
Guess that means he won’t be visiting Germany soon.
What a weirdo.
Everything but the last paragraph. Public education and colleges are making Americans more stupid by the minute. That number currently seems to exceed 50%.
Or Austrian ;-)
Education has morphed into indoctrination.
Obama was just continuing a Clinton era policy of tapping all foreign leaders. Hillary and bill fought over the females.
Is this why General Keith Alexander is being shunted out of NSA, so that domestic spying, extortion and blackmail can be expanded unhindered?
Thats a suprise. Barry is usually the last to know. He finds out just like us by watching it on TV. :-)
I have said it before, zero was specifically brought in to bring US down completely and utterly! The powers that be are tired of waiting and needed a candidate who was an angry black guy that could get away with anything due to “white guilt” of the libs!
The Obama administration will likely blame Bush if the article is correct in stating that the surveillance was initiated in 2002. Hopefully Hillary will be dragged into the quagmire, as she also should have been aware as Secretary of State.
I'm sure the liars at the New York Times will attempt to back the liars at the White House... They'll find a way to blame Bush...
Yes. Bill. The one who still runs the whole setup, and will kill you all.
If not stopped.
...was told of the secret monitoring of Mrs Merkel by General Keith Alexander, the head of the NSA, in 2010...
According to the article, it started in 2002. But Obama told Merkel he didn’t know anything about it, which is his standard response to everything.
How very true -- that's one way to put it.
Does this mean it’s NOT George Bush’s Fault???????????
FYI: Off topic ping to the list members!
No wonder he has enormous ears. He’s listening to everyone.
I doubt it. I would guess Obama started all the spying on our friends since he's so paranoid about everything.
Angela Merkel grew up in East Germany with its Stasi. IMHO, she has always seen him for the POS he is..
Thanks for the ping
