State Secretary of the Federal Chancellery Klaus-Dieter Fritsche denied any knowledge of possible illegal actions by the US National Security Agency (NSA) in a hearing by the German NSA inquiry committee at the Paul Loebe parliament building in Berlin, Thursday. The German government set up an inquiry committee after information released by whistle-blower Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA spied on Germany, including the German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Fritsche defended the German government for allegedly being aware of the NSA’s actions but not taking appropriate action at an earlier stage. He said if mistakes were made it was done by the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) as the BND should have informed appropriately the German government of questionable actions as early as 2005. The head of BND Gerhard Schindler reportedly is planning on hiring external advisers so Germany will not find itself in this position again in the future.
