Forget the coverage on Network TV. These insights into the NSA affair at a WSJ event, as seen from the former NSA director, Mike McConnell speak volumes. Where does it leave us "foreigners" in old Europe? Can we ever trust the open Internet again? And US communications corporations? When it comes to industrial espionage, China is ahead of the pack, with Russia and France being mentioned too. So many questions. So few coherent answers. Especially if you're not American.
