U.S. spy agency’s defense: Europeans did it too

WASHINGTON, Oct 30 (Reuters) – The political uproar over
alleged U.S. eavesdropping on close European allies has produced
an unusual defense from the National Security Agency: NSA says
it was the Europeans themselves who did the spying, and then
handed data to the Americans.

It is rare for intelligence officials to speak in any public
detail about liaison arrangements with foreign spy agencies
because such relationships are so sensitive. Even more unusual
is for the United States to point fingers at partners.
