Friends Don't Spy on Each Other!

Recent news that espionage has also been going on during international forum assemblies is shocking, to put it very mildly. Friends don't spy on each other - or at least that used to be the principle of common decency that I was familiar with when I was a child.

I am quite surprised to learn that authorities don't follow this moral guideline, and it worries me. Not that I have anything to hide, but WHY should George Orwell's 1984 be so violently used even among friendly nations who are supposed to form an alliance?

How can we believe we can win the war on terror when we don't trust one another? I think that is worth considering quite seriously.
