Der Spiegel quoted from a September 2010 “top secret” U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) document that it said fugitive former NSA contractor Edward Snowden had taken with him, and the weekly’s journalists had seen in part.

The document outlines how the NSA bugged offices and spied on EU internal computer networks in Washington and at the United Nations, not only listening to conversations and phone calls but also gaining access to documents and emails.

The document explicitly called the EU a “target”.

The narrative that U.S. intelligence agencies only collect on enemies of the state is crumbling rapidly.

Clearly, the information goes toward a larger control paradigm.

Now – who is trying to control what? That’s the bigger question.
