His administration still has three years to go, and the world is waiting, watching, and, frankly, wondering. Project Syndicate, 2013 Christopher R.

“And the French are someone to talk. The fact is, they’ve carried out spying operations against the United States — both the government and industry,” King said. “As far as Germany, that’s where the Hamburg Plot began, which led to 9/11. They’ve had dealings with Iran and Iraq, North Korea — the French and the Germans, other European countries.” Aaron Blake covers national politics at the Washington Post, where he writes regularly for the papers Post Politics and The Fix blogs.
