Israel: U.S. Spying Unacceptable

At this point, is there any country in the world left that isn’t mad at the U.S. for spying? A top Israeli official on Sunday slammed the U.S. after reports surfaced Friday that the U.S. had spied on them. “The tracking after prime ministers and defense ministers is not legitimate and not acceptable to us,” said Yuval Steinitz, the spokesman of Israeli Intelligence Minister. According to German newspaper Der Spiegel, four Israeli officials were targeted and monitored at a facility in Britain. At least one email address reportedly belonged to the Prime Minister. The document detailing the spying came from Edward Snowden. Thanks a lot, Edward Snowden, for leaving the U.S. with no friends.
