NSA antics causing other nations to edge USA out

NSA antics causing other nations to edge USA out

The NSA isn't just angering Americans. The European Union and Latin America have gotten fed up with NSA antics and have decided to start cutting the United States out of technological innovations overseas.

"A jointly funded, €135 million project will enable Brazil and the EU to bypass US-owned transatlantic cables, The New York Times reported, with plans to lay a modern high capacity fibre-optic cable from Lisbon, Portugal to Fortaleza, Brazil."

The biggest anti-NSA sentiments are coming from Germany and Brazil, where it was revealed that the NSA was spying on those countries' leaders.

It's clear that the NSA revelations are costing American tech companies, since other nations are willing to spend about $186 million to keep the NSA out of their affairs.
