Merkel Blasts U.S. Spying, Hopes Washington Will Change Tack

Angela Merkel said on Saturday that new allegations of U.S. spying showed Berlin and Washington were completely at odds over how they viewed the role of intelligence, and she hoped German action would persuade the United States not to spy on partners. Her comments to German broadcaster ZDF come two days after her government told the CIA station chief in Berlin to leave the country, in a dramatic display of anger after German officials unearthed two suspected spies. The scandal has chilled relations with Washington to levels not seen since Merkel's predecessor opposed the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest says the relationship that the US has with Germany is valued. The latest allegations follow allegations last year that Merkel's phone was bugged by American agents.
