France's Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius at a meeting in Moscow, September 17, 2013.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius has summoned the U.S. ambassador for “immediate” discussions regarding recent newspaper claims that the National Security Agency (NSA) has spied on millions of phone calls in France, BBC reports.

In an article on Monday, Le Monde said that between December 10 last year and January 8, the NSA intercepted 70.3 million phone calls in France, involving terrorist suspects, but also businesses and officials. The information, based on documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, did not say whether the calls were recorded or if the operation was still ongoing.

The US is not only spying and illegally gathering all sorts of information on its own citizens, it is doing the same thing to everyone in the world.

Note especially the little comment that the US is gathering information  illegally on political and business leaders everywhere (what happened in France is certainly not isolated, but emblematic).  That information can then be used for all sorts of illegal manipulation of those leaders.

Democracy cannot exist in this environment.

Calderon and Fox used the international legal and illegal security network in USA and
Mexico against me, after a comment on line in Excelsior and Universal about the
issue of two plagiarisms of Fox in Mexico at Universidad Iberoamericana for hic
Bachelor´s degree and also in his thesis presented at an American University
for his PhD. It was long time ago but since then he has been using the
international legal and illegal security network in USA and Mexico against me
for almost three years, as a personal issue. Also I used to work in Hildebrando,
Calderon´s family business and both of them decided to use this international
legal and illegal security network in USA and Mexico against me because of my comments on line about the plagiarism of Fox using government documents as Theses. The Lazies are winning over the world. They only copy or stole the copyrights of others. The Lazies are using fake educational level. They do not have any degree. http://t.co/KhIGtxd6sQ

One of master´s degree professor was a college of her, I know that they are right, we want to see the numbers. Fraud using ERP all over the world through IT indian Companies and Indian Consultants. Necesitamos las herramientas, la educación no tiene el nivel adecuado debido a grupos en el poder. http://lnkd.in/bwjACS9 We need the tools, we have a low level of education because these elites. Of course if they do not kill her before

Indian IT companies were invited by Calderon, to start their frauds in PEMEX, http://lnkd.in/bzzQXbh The Indian consultants monopolized the project in SAP, no mexican was involved in this project. It smells fishy and with tax money worse. No a mexican american involved in the project. Smell like a fraud with tax money. Indians work together and they protect each other, but they do not support other kind of people that could disagree with them, allowing that the fraud in government and Corporates. No indian alone has done a complete implementation os SAP in LATAM, You do not know spanish well, legal requirements, you do not know the economic system. I do not want LATAM to suffer as USA for all these IT fraudsThis is a international problem, Corporates supporter for IT indian companies are not paying taxes legally as it suppossed to be made. Countries should look for the consultants to put them in jail.

I think that Mexico and USA may be better than India, if we let the mexican and US PhD and scientists work together in each module of the ERP, and créate something really advance for our civilization, mexican american should be working together for a new Era. The true is that the mexican and US education is without direction, to have it, it is necessary to unify all the level of education, and structure the knowledge by modules at all the levels to créate the productivity models, I created. The mexican and US government should work at all levels of the mexican and US education and structure the knowledge in the way to be more productive, protect our companies, our Nation. No podemos dejar las empresas mexicanas y americanas en manos de estos tipos por falta de acuerdos en el sector educativo, realmente falta un reforma educativa que redunde productivamente en el sistema mexicano y americano https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=474264039355030&set=vb.388313877950047&type=2&theater

The NSA system is a diabolic system created by lazies, science was not applied at all and it is done by high school workers without educative documents. It is a system that eats other systems like television, radio, telephone among others. Attacks several targets at the same time using CIA techniques of dealing with different groups. This system protects operations of the agencies including in the system, it is not only USA, but also India that supplied more of the technical support. Indians is kind of race without ethic at all. Everything is real time. Its weakness is the low level of technology used, because IT science was not applied, because they preferred domination of the technicians.

“Their purpose is to obtain foreign intelligence information, including information necessary to thwart terrorist and cyber-attacks against the United States and its allies.”


He just admitted that the many spying programs we run might not have anything to do with terrorism!!!

We might spy on the French to beat them bidding for oil contracts or military supply!  We are nation dominated by greed.  It's obvious we feel we don't have to play fair in this world.  Americans these days have to lie cheat and steal to win. We will win at any cost and then pat ourselves on the back for it.
