EU demands ‘full clarification’ of NSA diplomat spying, warns of severe impact on relations
We have immediately been in contact with the US authorities in Washington DC and in Brussels and have confronted them with the press reports," she said in a statement. "They have told us they are checking on the accuracy of the information released yesterday and will come back to us."

"Partners do not spy on each other,” Reding, suggesting that talks for a free trade agreement between the EU and the US should be halted until Washington provides explanations.

"We cannot negotiate over a big transatlantic market if there is the slightest doubt that our partners are carrying out spying activities on the offices of our negotiators," she said.


Blame it on? HHHmmm..

Re: EU demands ‘full clarification’ of NSA diplomat spying, warns of severe impact on relations
Snowden, 30, fled the US for Hong Kong in May, just weeks before The Guardian and Washington Post published details he provided about a top-secret US government surveillance program that accumulated internet and telephone traffic both at home and abroad.

The whistleblower is presently in the transit zone of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport, where it is believed he is attempting to gain political asylum in Ecuador.

Lode Vanoost, former deputy speaker of the Belgian parliament, believes that the main purpose of the US surveillance program was “economic spying” on the EU.

“At the moment, the EU is negotiating a new free trade agreement with the United States,” the former deputy speaker noted. “Well, [now the US can gather] what their opponent is already discussing internally of strategy. That is one of the possibilities.”
