Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Isolated as they are within the EU, and always playing second fiddle to Turkey in its US relations, they are the target more often than not.

Once before the Olympics (Greece paid hundreds of millions of dollars to a US military contractor that delivered nothing but junk for security equipment) and once more recently (Greece procured jetfighters from the US for a bill that was triple the original agreement) the gov't has had to ante up an immense amount to American military interests, with little to show in return.

This amounts to a tax. And we all know, that once you start to feed the beast, the beast will begin to take an interest in the source of its next meal. The real question is, didn't the Greek gov't expect this kind of eavesdropping?

Vodafone, who owns it?
