Brazil, Mexico Want Answers About Reports NSA Spied On Its Presidents

Brazil assailed the United States on Monday after new allegations that Washington spied on President Dilma Rousseff, complaining that its sovereignty may have been violated and suggesting that it could call off Rousseff's planned state visit to the White House next month.

A Brazilian news program reported on Sunday that the U.S. National Security Agency spied on emails, phone calls and text messages of Rousseff and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, a disclosure that could strain Washington's relations with Latin America's two biggest nations.

    Oh no, our espionage spied on some foreign governments. Like Mexico and Brazil don't spy on Americans. Greenwald is dummy.

    Agreed. Mexico and Brazil have no moral high ground here. I'm not saying the US has any, but still.

    A US spy agency spied on a foreign government? Isn't that their job?

    I would shocked if there was a country that the NSA didn't spy on.
