Germans believe NSA is Stasi of America: Ex-US intelligence linguist

Press TV has conducted an interview with Scott Rickard, a former American intelligence linguist, in Florida, to discuss the United States’ espionage activities against heads of states in Europe and the cooperation between German and US intelligence services.
.
The following is a rough transcription of the interview.
.
Press TV: How does spying on heads of states and government figures help Europe against terrorism?
.
Rickard: Well, obviously, it helps to collaborate with other intelligence communities if that is what they are focusing on; but when you talk about Germany, looking at the history of their intelligence community, it was actually built by the Americans and the British post-World War II. And there has been intensive collaboration from industrial espionage, specifically espionage against Russia, and certainly Angela Merkel is a clear and present advocate and cooperative partner in the propaganda as well as the intelligence collection that is going on in Ukraine and the cooperation with the West’s instigation of the coup in Ukraine.
.
So, for this particular collaboration on the intelligence side and for the Americans and the British to be completely embedded with German intelligence, it does not come as surprise. And in fact, the people of Germany actually refer to the NSA as the new Stasi of America because of the fact that a lot of the German war machine was inherited by the British and the Americans post-World War II.
.
Press TV: It is such a hodgepodge though, if you look at it. The NSA is spying on the German government while the German intelligence is helping the NSA spy on the French government and the EU leaders. Who is spying on who and what for?
Rickard: Unfortunately, in the intelligence community, the interwoven connections, the alliances, the actual loyalty, it is always in question. I would not be very surprised even if Gerard Schindler, his loyalty, certainly is not to the sovereignty of Germany.  

His loyalties will lie within many of the… Zionist movement that he has very closely tied to, as well as Angela Merkel.
.
So, when you talk about these loyalties to their sovereign nations, absolutely those are not ties that bind; the ties that bind are in their personal relationships, obviously the family relationships and certainly the organizations that these individuals are loyal to.
.
Press TV: And this trade-off between security and privacy that we are seeing even in the highest level of governance in different countries specifically in the West… Is this conducive towards peace as well as security?
.
Rickard: Well, absolutely not. These types of invasion of privacy are causing what I would say [is] some of the most, I guess, internal affairs uproar that I have ever seen. Certainly, within the United States, there has been huge divide between the parties and certainly within the other countries with, you know… you look at the response from the Green Party against what the BND’s cooperation with the NSA and others… these are the kinds of risk that are creating… there are actually splitting countries apart and creating really a chaotic and unmanageable affair, where in fact, the intelligence communities and the individuals that are sort of picking the politicians like Merkel are the ones that are really pulling the puppetstrings, cause these are the individuals that stay in power and have been in power for decades on end.
