She may not take it likely if…..but Obama assures Germany’s
Merkel, the the U.S. isn’t tapping her phone
Is that Chancellor Merkel on the line? Don’t worry, the U.S.
isn’t listening in.
That’s the upshot of what President Barack Obama told the
German leader in a phone call on Wednesday, according to the White House. Obama
“assured” Merkel that the National Security Agency isn’t monitoring her
communications after Der Spiegel reported that the German chancellor phoned
Obama to discuss the allegations.
The story involves the NSA tapping her cell phone.
The U.S. “is not monitoring and will not monitor the
communications of the chancellor,” Carney told reporters.

Some on Twitter were quick to point out the present- and
future-tense descriptions Carney used.
