Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am not surprised that phones had been tapped and I think that Greece is definitely not an isolated case.  What surprises me, though, is the reaction of the Greek government. It is strange that it publicly admitted the fact that high officials had been tapped and it didn't even blame Vodafone for erasing the software and thus making further investigation impossible. Also, New Democracy--the party currently in power in Greece--is traditionally pro-US, which makes it quite unexpected for the government to point at the US embassy as possibly involved in the scandal.
