Germany Boots Top U.S. Spy

It looks like the Germans have had their fill of American espionage, as the country has now asked the top U.S. intelligence official in Berlin to leave the country. “The representative of the U.S. intelligence services at the United States embassy has been asked to leave Germany,” a government spokesman said. That probably means the CIA station chief, but it hasn’t been confirmed. The move comes after two suspected cases of American spying as well as the longer-term battle over data-collection by the NSA.
