Xinhua recently published a commentary calling for the U.S. to apologize for the newly reported U.S. wiretapping on German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The commentary pointed out that no one knows how many more important foreign government officials the U.S. intelligence organizations spied upon. The commentary also mentioned that the issue caused a huge trust problem among the U.S. allies in Europe. The author described the U.S. calling for “human rights” and “allies’ interests” as flat out lies after so many of its secret spying activities were exposed. The United States seems to have no intention of admitting any wrong-doing, even today. The commentator called it “ironic” that the U.S. is expressing its unhappiness over the victims because of their complaints. It concluded that the United States owes China an apology, owes Germany an apology, and, in fact, owes the world an apology.
