Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There is a scandal. But there is a lot of resignation to the fact that this is the US government and we don't want to rock that boat.

The fact that someone was, quite probably, murdered makes the case harder to sweep under the rug though. Anyway, as the man said, just because a shadow phone known to have been used in illegally wiretapping half the Greek government, the armed forces and tens of Greek citizens, made 11 phone calls to within a few km of the headquarters of NSA, doesn't prove that the NSA was involved now, does it?

Yes, I think that this story is going to "go away" ultimately, but not before it reveals quite a few things about our diminishing privacy, sovereignty and capacity for collective outrage...
