Reactions continue throughout the world over the NSA's surveillance activities revealed in Edward Snowden's whistleblowing interview with Glenn Greenwald a month ago.

In this latest instance outrage was sparked in the European Union (EU) and particularly in Germany over a report in the German magazine "Der Spiegal" telling of the NSA "tapping EU offices in Washington, Brussels and at the United Nations" and gaining "access to the EU's internal computer networks." [1]

Yesterday, Catherine Ashton, the EU High Representative said the EU had immediately contacted U.S. authorities (regarding "Der Spiegal's" reports) and a U.S. government spokesman responded, "we're checking on the accuracy of the information revealed yesterday and would get back to the EU as soon as possible," [2] (conveying the idea the administration wasn't aware of what the NSA was doing. Please).

The U.S. and the EU are close trading partners but as Viviane Reding, the European commissioner for justice and fundamental rights said, "Partners do not spy on each other." [3]
