The voracious spy agency that is NSA continues to break laws it doesn’t like and ignore international friendships and relationships. All it wants is more data. If you believe they are doing this to prevent terrorism, I got a nice bridge for sale. NSA is a monster determined to watch everything we do so it can use the information against us, to swap our private informations for other data, and to give its political masters information to use against opponents. It is an enemy of freedom and democracy.
The United States’ NSA intelligence agency is interested in international payments processed by companies including Visa, SPIEGEL has learned. It has even set up its own financial database to track money flows through a “tailored access operations” division.
