German people are the most oppressed people on Earth. They have no right to write their own history. They have to accept the propaganda of the winners of the both World wars with their hidden agenda.

Merkel is right. There is absolutely no comparison between the Stasi and the global NSA surveillance. The NSA sweep is global, while the Stasi were limited to half of one country; The NSA monitors all electronic communications, the Stasi didn't have the technology or personnel for that. The NSA gets massive financial and political support from governments all over the world, while the Stasi were lucky to get thrown the occasional bone from the KGB.

Overall, the NSA is far more effective, and manufactures far more consent or, failing that, fear.

When people represent apparently inconsistent positions means illegal activity

"German Prismers of War" just another offshoot of Obama policy and contempt for international law.

Sounds like German Chancellor Angela Merkel not only knew of but, approved of NAS collecting private information on German citizens. What'd bet she gets voted out in the next election.
