The fuss is that you're not supposed to get caught doing it.
Well, okay. Obviously the fuss is about that. But the righteous indignation? Puh-leeeez.
And the U.S. would do the same thing if they found out the Germans were bugging the Oval Office.

Listen, this is just the price the U.S. will have to pay for getting its hand caught in the cookie jar. Everyone tries to spy on everyone else... and everyone has to pay the price of others' righteous indignation if they get caught. That's just how it is. We'd do the same thing in their shoes.
I get the official line. You've got to smack the back of the hand that you caught in the cookie jar. It's expected. That's how the game is played. I just do not see how anyone can be naive enough to actually believe this doesn't or shouldn't happen.
