Posted on 10/28/2013 9:08:34 AM PDT by lbryce
U.S. officials responded Sunday night to a report that the National Security Agency ended a program used to spy on German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders only after an internal Obama administration review started this summer exposed the operation.
An unnamed senior official told The Wall Street Journal that the White House "cut off some monitoring programs after learning of them, including the one tracking Ms. Merkel and some other world leaders. Other programs have been slated for termination but haven't been phased out completely yet."

Obama: I was kept wholly ignorant for 5.5 years until someone finally turned on a computer.
In the case of Obama's wiretapping, they both can't be true.
It's either he's a bald-faced liar or an utter fool. Most people would have a very hard time choosing between the two.
But in Obama's case, just like in Chinatown, they're both true. He's a bald faced liar and an utter fool.
He lies like an armadillo on a Texas highway.
Really? He is lucky crap stinks or he wouldn’t know if he crapped himself. Always in the clear with the world events and anything that is going wrong in this nation. Nothing but a piece of crap.
Obama spreads more Manure than any machine ever yet built.
He is a walking lie himself, his past hidden.
Yet the Media has no interest in finding the truth, or printing it, since they already know it.
When the press covers for you, you can get away with it.
Isnt worse if he didnt know? We have rogue government entities engaged in secret domestic and international operations and agendas unbeknownst to the President, Congress, Supreme Court or the people?
The question now is: who IS in charge?
and the list of the things Big Zero is unaware of keeps growing by the day. He’s setting a new precedent of how to get away with anything. Just claim you didn’t know.
In a perfect world we would never gather intelligence on our allies like this.
However, we have never lived in a perfect world when it comes to allies or intelligence, and never will.
The rest of the world is pissed, and I agree they should be, however if they had the capabilities that we have, the money and resources and raw ability like we have with our satellite dominance then how many would have done it too?
My guess is most, if not all, would have tapped into it if they had the opportunity we have. Their politicians can run around screaming foul until they’re blue in the face, but under it all and behind closed doors their own intelligence gathering specialists are green with envy.
There are only a few true allies in that business, like us and Canada, and even then we would freeze them out in a heartbeat if it was in our own self interests to do so.
President is about to introduce the new FBI Director. I am waiting for him to say I had no idea this man was my choice for FBI Director.
BS. He claims ignorance when that would simply mean he is severely incompetent, but we all know he is simply lying.
They tell us that he’s always the ‘smartest man in the room.’
When he’s in a room full of democrats, that is most likely true................
How many are there now, four?
....Right after never doing it, they stopped doing it. (EGD)
If I remember correctly, the first rule of leadership (according to Hopper from “A Bug’s Life”) is “EVERYTHING is your fault”.
It seems that Obama knows NOTHING. What does that say about his leadership?
Somebody should clue him in.
“Sir, at some point, you are going to have to pretend to know something that goes on around here. Otherwise folks are going to catch on to your egregious and arrogant incompetence. Ignorance is bliss until it becomes the default.”
Trailer, plus, from “The Candidate”, starring Robert Redford.
The pathetic little man reminds me most of this.
Famous line from this movie (or was it The Manchurian Candidate?): “What do we do if we win?”
"What buck? I never saw a buck. Bush took the buck." - Barry H. Obama
