NSA Spying Scandal: How Should German Authorities Respond? Interview with Hans-Georg Maassen, President of BfV, the German Domestic Intelligence Service.
For 60 years, Germany’s intelligence agency, the BND, worked in the shadows, and would have continued that way if American whistleblower Edward Snowden hadn’t changed everything.
Over two years after the NSA affair, the head of Germany’s foreign intelligence agency is leaving his post. Investigative journalist Hans Leyendecker tells DW it’s because he didn’t know whom his staff were spying on.
Germany's foreign intelligence service was spying on a "double-digit" number of EU and NATO governments until 2013, according to a parliamentary committee report. The BND also spied on a German citizen.
Germany's domestic intelligence chief has defended charges against Netzpolitik reporters to "ensure the fight against extremism and terrorism." Netzpolitik was to be investigated for publishing "classified" documents.
