    i posted something about this, but more general a couple of weeks ago and assholes claimed it wasn't true. we spy on our competition, and they spy on us. unfortunately its nothing new.

    You are obviously a racist and only reporting this because you don't like a black president.

    Piss off your own citizens. Check.
    Piss off your closest longtime allies. Check.
    Adopt behavior you previously criticized your enemies (Stalin/KGB) for. Check.

    We're off to a Glorious start! :yay:

    Who cares? We should all just ignore this. We have Obama in office, everything is fine.

    I'm sure we're huge hypocrites about this and it's really 10 times worse than we think it is. :jj:

    give it time and someone will say that seriously. i think Obama's fault with this issue is with his inability o deal with the exposure. Bush Sr would have whitewashed it already.

    The difference here is the media will brush this aside. With Bush we would have it plastered on the first five google pages and Michael Moore would be making a documentary about it.
