“Would You Guys Please Speak Up?”

Monday, June 17th, 2013

Did you hear? The G-8 conference started today and it looks like it’s off to a rocky start.

Earlier in the day a report was released saying the US and Britain spied on Russians and other countries at the London G20 Summit in 2009.  Our bugging of intercepted calls and emails were targeted at Russian leaders.  The British spy agency focused on Turkish diplomats.  The report was included in the leaks by National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden and printed by the Guardian, a London newspaper.

If these world leaders didn’t know they were being bugged and didn’t do it to other countries, they’re too dumb to sit at the table anyway.  For years the US policy has been, “We bug everybody – all of the time.”
