"Si les révélations sur le programme d'espionnage américain Prism ont provoqué un concert d'indignation en Europe, la France, elle, n'a que faiblement protesté. Pour deux excellentes raisons : Paris était déjà au courant. Et fait la même chose.

A comment from a reader on http://www.zdnet.com:

Could be part of the reason why..."...Edward Snowden is having a hard time finding a government that will give him asylum. Normally, the French would be more than happy to thumb their noses at the Americans, but it doesn't make a lot of sense to if they have a PRISM program of their own.

Notice how eager the Russians are to help Snowden out (not at all).John L. Ries 5 July, 2013"
