French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has summoned the US ambassador over newspaper claims that the US spied on millions of phone calls in France.

France has labelled such activity between allies as "unacceptable".

Snowden's at it again, leaking reports the US spied on the French. Before he'd leaked reports that the US spied on Germany and Mexico, reading email's and other sensitive national documents. Now as you can imagine the French are pissed. To spy on your enemy's is deemed acceptable, to spy on your allies is not.

Le Monde reported in July that the French government was storing vast amounts of personal data of its citizens on a supercomputer at the headquarters of the DGSE intelligence service.

Connections inside France and between France and other countries were all monitored, Le Monde reported. Emails, text messages, telephone and internet browsing records are stored for years, it said.


Another case of the pot calling the kettle black and the BBC being right on it. :roll:

Not sure there will be any government that doesn't spy on it's own citizens. What the French don't like is another nation, an ally, spying on them.
