Since March 2014, a Bundestag committee has formed to inquire into the NSA affair with the aim of “clarifying the extent and backgrounds of spying by foreign intelligence services in Germany”. More recently, the committee has even been interested in interrogating Edward Snowden himself in Germany. In political terms, this decision is controversial. At the core of the issue lies the fundamental question of how intelligence services can be regulated democratically, both at home and abroad. And which threat is greater: the NSA or cyberattacks?
