NSA News: Belgium has called on Washington to explain why US intelligence agencies haven’t been monitoring a single phone call or email made by its citizens.
Belgium’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders, has expressed ‘deep concern’ over the complete lack of spying on Belgians revealed in documents uncovered by Edward Snowden.
“With a population of over eleven million people I would have expected at least one of them to be interesting enough to warrant being spied on by the USA,” said Reynders.
“But apparently not one email or phone call made by a Belgian was considered worth listening to. We can be just as subversive as all the other countries in the world – have you not heard of that statue we have of the little pissing boy?”
The US has refused to apologise for not spying on Belgium, with an official statement from the NSA claiming that it ‘simply forgot Belgium existed’ and that there was ‘some debate in the office over whether or not Belgium was actually a real country or just a forgotten bit of the Netherlands’.
