2:20 pm
domestic relationship that cannot be ignored. they are becoming easy prey and they are facing an adversary that could number 100,000. the question is whether this issue will be addressed in public by germany or china or behind closed doors as sensitive issues like this tend to be between these two countries. >> this is not about merkel's visit to china but germany's relations into the united states. an investigation into a german agent with the u.s. 96 spicer has the story. >> nothing to add to news reports while the investigation was underway. >> of course i can't comment. >> i can't tell you exactly how that's going to happen. >> reporter: the german media reported that a 31-year-old man

2:23 pm
>> i'm joined by ray mcgovern from washington, d.c. former intelligence expert. thanks for being with us. account u.s. and germany put this scandal behind them, how badly has their reputation been damaged? >> as has been pointed out the close relationship of intelligence sharing is something that goes back a matter of decades. as a matter of fact, tom drake who testified on friday even talked about the bnd for example as being an appendage, unhanga is the engineer man word to the nsa and the u.s. intelligence establishment. so with that kind of history, it's going to be very difficult for mrs. merkel to assert her authority, and i see this as a kind of a metaphor for the unhanga, the appendage
2:24 pm
relationship that has existed between germany and the united states send the end of world war ii really. one of the things that has been lost sight of is that chancellor merkel was on the phone with our president, that is president barack obama on thursday night. the subject was not supposed ton this spy. the subject was ukraine. and u.s. and german and french interests differ on the ukraine. the germans and the french and the russians don't want a war there and the war continues. merkel herself spent two hours on the phone with putin, hollande and the head of poroshenko, the head of ukraine last sunday night, week ago and when did she get, nothing.

poroshenko is taking direction from the united states in direct contradiction to what the germans and the french want and the russians and it's very reminiscent in 2002, 2003, in iraq. >> how much of a gulf between the politician he and intelligence services? how much do plosion politiciansl know between the u.s. and germany? >> that's an excellent question. the fear in germany of course is that washington knows a lot more than the bnd is doing. and that's altogether possible. dual haus merlic could one say. this parliamentary bundeslag is going to have to decide whether
2:26 pm
it really wants to learn these things or whether the u.s. so-called oversight committees which really are overlook committees, whether they really want to know what the bnd was doing. because thomas drake said on friday night, all or virtually all the data that goes through germany is accessed by the nsa and by the bnd. and some of that, some of that traffic, some of that data is used for drone strikes in pakistan. that's big. if the german government wants to duck that, hopefully there's enough democracy in germany, hopefully enough time has gone by since world war ii that the germans can stop acting like anhanga, with all the killing

2:33 pm
what are they preparing to do now do you think? >> in donetske they are pretty well in one area in the city. when you see them around every once in a while, they're not in formation, not patrolling so to speak. what they are preparing is siege on this city and remaining strong holds for these separatist fifthers. they have blown up three bridges in broad daylight. we saw one, we actually passed under one of these bridges and a couple of hours later we're assuming this that is when the bridge was blown. it was a railway bridge and came on top of the road in the city, was still passible, but they're trying to seal off the city from major movement from ukrainian army. at least from what we saw it would probably not stop many from traveling on that road. >> thank you. the former minister of
