Germany’s spy agency ‘in bed’ with US – Snowden on Berlin’s inhospitality

Standard

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden says he has more revelations about Washington’s spying on German citizens, but Berlin is reluctant to invite him to testify because Germany has used the exact same surveillance methods as the US, Stern magazine reported.The former NSA contractor – wanted by the US for disclosing its surveillance program – told the German magazine that he had been “personally involved with information stemming from Germany” and that the “constitutional rights of every citizen in Germany were infringed” during the process. Snowden said he had used systems able to intercept large amounts of data, adding: “I’d be surprised if German lawmakers learnt nothing new if I laid out all the information.” The rights activist suggested that the only reason Merkel’s government does not want him to testify is because Germany’s foreign intelligence agency, the BND, used the same methods of mass surveillance.
