BND Spying for the NSA: Merkel Now Owns the Scandal (Der Spiegel, Germany)

Germany - Der Spiegel - Original Article (German)

The government and the intelligence crisis: The cover-up of BND [Bundesnachrichtendienst] assistance to the NSA in its fishing expeditions into German businesses and politicians has exposed within the Chancellery an understanding of state that puts democracy at risk.

 

The federal government has told lies about its own involvement in total surveillance. The fires of the NSA surveillance drama, which have burned since June 2013, have now expanded to become a BND affair. In fact, the BND disaster of political and economic espionage is for Merkel what the "Black Money" debacle was for Helmut Kohl.

 

[Editor's Note: The Black Money Affair involved hidden donations, the non-disclosure of cash donations, the maintenance of secret bank accounts, and illegal wire transfers to and from foreign banks to Kohl's Christian Democratic Union during the 1990s. Ironically, this led to the emergence of Angela Merkel as conservative leader].

NSA 'Treason' Charges: Will Spy Chief Act as Sacrificial Lamb? (Berliner Morgenpost, Germany)

[Click Here to Read]

 

Among the maxims of governments and authorities, the essence of both affairs is a simple but extremely dangerous classic: "It isn't against the law when we do it." Kohl knew he was breaking the law, but he found his own justifications. In this case, it may have been the cold warriorís concerns that an SPD governing coalition would hand the country over to Moscow minutes after the polls closed, so Kohl was willing to adopt illegal means to keep the CDU in power.

 

Angela Merkelís Chancellery has either tolerated illegal methods or committed the most egregious violation of its duty to provide oversight of the BND. Now it has emerged that Merkelís government made false statements on the issue. This reinforces to a near certainty presumptions that the Chancellery itself has something to hide.

 

From the moment the NSA revelations began there were signs that a cover-up might be in Merkelís interest. In 2013 when she appointed as the Chancellery's intelligence oversight minister Klaus-Dieter Fritsche - a man whose understanding of state was that of a spy warrior - anything that contributed to the government's survival was permissible. The authorities alone would determine what was in the public good. This was already a sign that Angel Merkel was not for a second concerned with clarifying the reasons behind NSA surveillance and the role of the German intelligence services.

 

Very plausible suspicions are now being raised that she did this to protect her innermost political circle as well as herself. It has become increasingly clear why there is talk within the [Bundestag] NSA Committee of Inquiry that the government has prevented the truth from emerging. This is apparently not - or not only - to protect "the Americans" out of ill-conceived diplomatic loyalty. Rather, it is with the intention of protecting herself.

 

"Our task now is to fully clarify this issue," Merkel said after the most recent revelations, which is Merkel's version of Roland Koch's "brutally unsparing investigation." It is likely just as serious, which is to say not at all.

 

In addition to proven illegal activity by the former chancellor, there is an important difference between Kohlís "black money" scandal and Merkelís "Selectors Scandal:" Kohl wrong-headedly believed he was acting in the nation's interest. In no way, however, even from the most warped perspective, can BND support of [NSA] spying on the political and economic sphere be considered similarly advantageous.

 

[Editor's Note: "Selectors" refer to parameters for spying on German and European people, companies and organizations on behalf of the NSA that German intelligence allegedly either accepted or rejected - and in this case, accepted so many that it to critics it amounts to treason.]

 

 

So if it turns out to be true that the Chancellery bears responsibility for spying on the German political and economic sphere, then it should just be a matter of deciding whether a minor pawn like BND chief Gerhard Schindler is sacrificed, a major pawn like [Interior Minister] Thomas de MaiziŤre, or whether Merkel herself assumes responsibility. Those who act as if this is absurd have closed their eyes to the fact that Willy Brandt did the right thing by resigning due to a serious case of espionage in the Chancellery. Considering her previous strategies of influence, however, a Merkel resignation is about as likely as the election of [Greek Finance Minister] Yanis Varoufakis as E.U. employee of the month.

 

[Editor's Note: Chancellor Willy Brandt resigned in 1974, after GŁnter Guillaume, one of his closest aides, was exposed as an agent of the Stasi - the East German secret service.]

 

This makes the Merkel affair no less disastrous - and the damage may yet be much more extensive, because Merkelís affair is also a test of whether democracy still works in this country - or of whether regardless of what happens, what the public is told or who did what on the governmentís behalf - there is anything more than symbolic consequences. The real question is: Is it even conceivable that there is any revelation that would have material consequences - for instance, if there is no bobby-car to serve as a plausible explanation [for charges of bribery], as was the case with former President Christian Wulff? Or is the Angela Merkel government simply intent on running democratic value into the ground even as her adoring fans support her at all levels of government and across all levels of society?

 

Particularly distressing is therefore what from the beginning has been the problematically minor opposition - along with the fact that the SPD, a governing coalition partner, despite its "Program for the Digital Society" and its din of self-assertion, has too often buckled like the hinges of a collapsible table before the Chancellery. Not much can therefore be hoped for from the commendable efforts at clarification now being made by elements of the SPD

 

[Editor's Note: Last year the SPD introduced the Programm fŁr die Digitale Gesellschaft [Program for the Digital Society] with the goal of getting everyone "connected" - including the "digitally disenfranchised." etc. The SPD describes it as: 'a program for the future of the party - and for the digital society of tomorrow ... and a 'social democratic program for the 'Digital Future' that will rise to the challenge of aligning a globally networked society based on the universal values of social democracy: freedom, equality, solidarity and justice.]

 

There is, however, a positive aspect to the brand-new Merkel affair involving the Chancellery and BND. The revelations of Edward Snowden have finally taken a place in the public consciousness that they always should have. The German debate is no longer solely about the outrages of the U.S. intelligence services, but also the wrongdoing of the German intelligence services - and that of their chief.

 

The BND affair is Merkel's affair, because the Chancellery bears a share of responsibility for spying against those in German politics and economics.
