You would think after all these years of being demonstrably dishonest and even the "and" and the "the" the CIA remains the worst liars in Washington, which is a title like being the worst racist at a Klan rally. Get a load of this one:
Stung by the backlash over a German caught selling secrets to the US and the revelations of surveillance by the National Security Agency, the CIA has stopped spying on friendly governments in western Europe, according to current and former US officials.
. Oh yeah, real credible. "We're not spying on you anymore Angela Merkel...but you should really get that new mole on your backside checked out. Sincerely, the CIA." [cross-posted at Firedoglake]

Moreover, this story was written by the same reporter who voluntarily had his stories vetted by the CIA before publication. So, it's extra yummy in the dubious veracity department.

And, even if the CIA is backing off for the moment, until all the crap blows over, that doesn't for a second indicate that there's been any actual change in overall policy. The NSA is probably still dragnetting all of the Europe and the rest of the world, and probably giving choice tidbits to the CIA when they feel like it. Just because the CIA isn't doing it themselves doesn't mean that the spying has stopped.
