Germany Secretly Feeds U.s. Info On Possible Jihadists

I was asking for deeper operational cooperation, Hayden said. It came, although the relationship was routinely strained by espionage-related embarrassments. Among them were the realizations that Iraq weapons claims by a German source code-named Curveball had been fabricated and that the CIA had mistakenly abducted a German download citizen it thought was part of al-Qaeda. The Snowden disclosures triggered an eruption of much greater force. This is complete surveillance. It turns everybody here. into a suspect, said Hans-Christian Strobele, a member of Parliament who visited Snowden in Moscow last year. The NSA can do much more than the East German secret police could in their wildest dreams, he said, although he acknowledged that U.S. agencies havent used their knowledge for the same ends. But the Snowden files also exposed how costly it might be for officials in Berlin to sever ties with U.S. intelligence.
