The French aren't the only ones irked by this revelation. So. Am. I.
I wish MY country had the backbone to confront our allies when Wikileaks drops these bombs willy nilly.
Make no mistake about it--and you are hearing this from someone who knows--France is one of the U.S. allies MOST guilty of spying against the United States. Economic espionage. Espionage espionage. You name it, they've stolen it from us. They cost us MILLIONS each year with their thievery. You don't have to believe me. Google french and espionage and United States. I'm sure there's tons of articles on it from over the years.
When the French tried to posture against us and claim it will take time to restore our relationship, what President Obama should've done is let the U.S. Ambassador walk into the meeting with the French Ambassador and dump the files from every case of espionage the FBI has opened against the French. They could grow grapes for French wine in the carpet in the French Ambassadors office faster than they could dig out from under that pile of SHAME.
What gets me about Wikileaks is that you never see them leak information about other countries spying on the U.S. You never hear about the thousands of spies that come into this country and operate against us right in the heart of our Nation's capitol. No they will lead you to believe that the United States are the ONLY bad guys in the world and we should apologize for activities undertaken by every single country in the WORLD--and EVERY country spies against the United States in some way shape or form.
If you still believe the French have a remotely valid claim and we're the only ones spying, I'd offer you a glass of Kool-Aid but you've probably had your fill. Wikileaks is serving it by the pitchers full and too many Americans are sopping it up. If I ever went back into government service, it would be for the sole purpose of shutting those jackasses down.
And in the words of Forrest Gump, "That's all I have to say about that!"
