Iraq Angry Over Possible US Spying

(BAGHDAD) " The Iraqi government reacted sharply Friday to published allegations that the U.S. spied on Iraq's prime minister, warning that future ties with the United States could be in jeopardy if the report is true.

The allegations appear in a new book, The War Within: A Secret White House History, 2006-2008, by journalist Bob Woodward, who writes that the United States spied extensively on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, his staff and other government officials.

@Robert Gentel,
The Iraqi government didn't expect the US to be spying on them???

Ok, sure, having it publicly revealed is a different ballgame...but I can't believe they didn't expect it, and, if their own intelligence system has any expertise at all, know it.

Yeah, It seems as though the Iraqis have lost it; why would they even think the US isn't? Now, it's a threat? LOL
