US & Germany To Negotiate ‘No Spy’ Pact [Photo]


The United States will initiate ‘no spy’ negotiations later this month with Germany in the wake of the negative aftermath of NSA leaker Edward Snowden’s actions. The country had a particularly large public outcry due to the nation’s unique relationship with privacy and mass surveillance following the formerly communist East Germany and Hitler’s reign. While U.S. officials cite their programs as necessary in dealing with counter-terrorism efforts, Germany’s independent privacy watchdogs surveillance protest saying the programs breach an EU-U.S. pact intended to protect data collection efforts.
