Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands, today:
The U.S. ambassador to France has been summoned [by the French government] because of the spying by the NSA secret service. The French newspaper Le Monde reported earlier today that in France during one month 70.3 million phone calls were intercepted by the NSA.
France’s Le Monde published a report Monday based on documents leaked by Edward Snowden describing National Security Agency (NSA) spying operations directed against the French population and the French business and political leadership. Between December 2012 and January 2013, according to Le Monde, the NSA collected over 70 million French communications, which were then categorized either as “Drtbox” or “Whitebox”: here.
NSA spied on 1.8 million phone calls in the Netherlands: here.
The concerted campaign by the British government to silence the Guardian newspaper, due to its publication of the Edward Snowden revelations, is indicative of the move toward dictatorial forms of rule by the ruling elite: here.
