8:02 pm
with you. >> the protestors messages to the government, you've been listening to us, now hear this. >> it bothers me because we don't know what's going on. it bothers me because whenever you send a tweet or e-mail or take a picture or do anything that involves any kind of data, phone calling or anything, you don't know that that information isn't being housed somewhere and that's wrong. >> you have a right to privacy. >> i believe the accusation's a- constitution that we should be free from unusual search and seizure. >> a petition with more than half omillion signatures urging that domestic surveillance be stopped. but many acknowledge that many americans are an thetic about surveillance and bringing about change will not be easy.
8:03 pm
jean meserve, al jazeera america. >> monitoring the german chancellor's cell phone for more than a decade. that german magazine said the german chancellor's are phone number was on the list 2002, still on that list weeks before president obama visited berlin this summer. also said that the u.s. used a high tech an ten that for spying, just to listen to conversation or just logging calls. the nsa has a second surveillance station in frankfurt. cathryn cluver, dual citizen for united states and germany. thanks for being with us tonight. >> my pleasure. >> here's my big question, the u.s. and other countries say this is not a big surprise, every country spice on every
8:04 pm
other country. is germany just update or acting upset because they are becoming public? >> i think there's plenty of spying in both directions. the new york times underlined in a peace that the french has been launching cyberattacks against the pentagon, went as far as getting the blueprints for f-thrive fighter plane. it would be naive to think that is not case. however, part of the reason we know what we know about what the nsa has been doing is because we have edward snowden and he's reporting simply on the nsa activities. so while there is some truth of course the disappointment i think the fact that this has become personal, that this goes all the way up to the top that that disappointment is real. and the disappointment with the u.s. president, that this wasn't dealt with so the europeans feel
8:05 pm
quickly whe in the summer with e revelations became evident is palpable and real. >> how damaging is this? >> the question is always what can the europeans really do? and they have done one very proactive thing, i would say, is on the outskirts of the summit yesterday in brussels we learned, because this is a question of national security, the europeans per se can't do very much but individual countries can. so angela merkel partnered up with president hollande and suggested they review the type of spying and intelligence services have, to get closer to what the united states have with some of the english speaking allies, the so-called five is where there is a lot of intelligence sharing. can they do very much? not really.
8:06 pm
does the united states still remain the clear leader of all of the western alliance? yes it does. but of course there are some important negotiations at stake. the united states and its european partners are negotiating with iran right now on sort of the nuclear future of that country. there is a draw down in afghanistan come down where germany will remain the second largest force after the istaff wrawl iwithdrawal in 2014. there may be some new look at this negotiation. >> i want to go through the five i's, english speaking country, merkel signing this no-spy agreement, we don't spy on you, you don't spy on us, how realistic is that alone? >> i think it's worth an attempt.
8:07 pm
she has an irate domestic audience now. this has come up in the negotiations towards a coalition, we're still in discussions about the new german government and what it's actually going to look like. so she has to appease a domestic audience, i think this is of a person concern to her. they can attempt what they can. the president has already signaled and has two differently committees looking at exactly what the nsa has been doing. this is a very proactive approach. they want to get something done by the end of the year. whether that is going to happen or not only time will tell. >> the big question is how really divisive is this between europe and the united states? >> i think it is -- it does very clearly erode trust. there is not as i said so much that the european -- the europeans per se or the european union for that matter could do
8:08 pm
to retaliate. we heard on the outskirts of the are brussels talks, calling for an end or at least a pause on the negotiations towards the creation of a very large transatlantic trade and cr relationship. if we take ourselves out of that relationship how are we going to get back in, it is shows how powerful the united states is and how much europe would have to lose to take things off the table there. but again they are involved in very difficult negotiations internationally. i mentioned iran. we never know when a second libya could recur. we didn't see that happening. that could only happen, because the french and the u.k. decided to assume leadership there. the president wants to take american is troops out of harm's way. so he needs his european allies. so there -- they boat sides

8:10 pm
halls of the u.s. congress to put in place stopping of domestic spying. >> working for the arab american institute our community in particular is constantly the one, the community that's targeted by a lot of these post9/11 counterterrorism initiatives and efforts. >> they're literally vacuuming up everyone's information and sort of combing through that. i think that is really alarming and it really contradicts fundamental principles of our constitution. >> that information isn't being collected, it's also being stored, sometimes for decades. according to a new report the fbi is able to keep intelligence the longest. >> 20 to 30 years basically on the theory that it might be useful in the future. that information will only be godden rid of if it's going to be -- got be rid of if it's no use to the fbi or the other 16 agencies that is in the american
