Obama Orders Review of U.S. Spying

European leaders are mad and President Obama knows it. After NSA leaker Edward Snowden broke the news that the U.S. is keeping tabs on leaders of European countries, even those who are U.S. allies, President Obama ordered a review of who we’re snooping on and why. Jen Psaki, a State Department spokeswoman, said, “We wanted to ensure we’re collecting information because we need it and not just because we can.” Germany and France have demanded that the U.S. put a stop to eavesdropping on leaders, companies and law-abiding citizens. The U.S. already has a no-spying agreement with Canada, Great Britain, New Zealand and Australia.
