BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government has obtained information that the United States may have monitored the mobile phone of Chancellor Angela Merkel and she called President Barack Obama on Wednesday to demand an immediate clarification, her spokesman said.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said Obama had assured Merkel that the United States was not monitoring the communications of the chancellor.

But the strongly worded statement by Merkel's spokesman suggested that Germany was not fully satisfied. It demanded an "immediate and comprehensive" clarification of U.S. surveillance practices.

Flashback - What failed doofus said this once: "One of the proudest things of my three years in office is helping to restore a sense of respect for America around the world, a belief that we are not just defined by the size of our military."

Way to go, Barry.

It would have been fun if President Obama had picked up the phone and said "I already know why you are calling".

Do you think the NSA surveillance program began under President Obama's term of office, that it didn't exist before? Really?

Yes, we know you think this is Bush's fault, as with anything else. Next.

Or if he'd said something like "Let me call you back on your secure line."

Who cares WHEN it started. That Obama has had a full term plus, to get the NSA under control.... And failed... Is evidence that... he...uhh...doesn't want to.

Welp. There goes the first "Blame Bush" allegation. Just because you disguised it doesn't mean it's any less the allegation.



Hope and Change. You supported it. Right?
