[liberationtech] 21st Century Statecraft: Joint Statement on U.S.-Germany Cyber Bilateral Meeting

Dear colleagues,

it is not easy to read diplotalk, but that was the meat:

"Germany noted its concern in connection with the recent disclosures
about U.S. Government surveillance programs. The U.S. referenced
statements by the U.S. President and the Director of National
Intelligence on this issue and emphasized that such programs are
designed to protect the United States and other countries from terrorist
and other threats, are consistent with U.S. law, and are subject to
strict supervision and oversight by all three branches of the U.S.
Government. Both sides recognized that this issue will be the subject of
further dialogue."

That is as strong as it may get ahead of a Presidential meeting in Berlin.
