PLUS Conference: Albright, Cohen on Global Risk, Governance and Hypocrisy

November 5, 2013 by Andrew Simpson

America’s European allies are being hypocritical in their complaints about the U.S. spying on them because they all have their own surveillance programs, according to two former top officials in the Clinton Administration.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said she was surprised by the “hypocrisy” from Germany and other allies and former Secretary of Defense William Cohen agreed, calling the Europeans’ outrage “stunning.”
