When you need them (not), I mean. German spies working with Gadaffi?
A former senior German official has said that his country’s intelligence services had cooperated with Muammar Gaddafi’s spy network for several years.
“It revolved mainly around information about the fight against terrorism and therefore Germany’s security interests,” said Bernd Schmidbauer, former coordinator of the German secret services.
Oh. Well, then that’s OK, I guess. Carry on or something.
However, he stressed that Germany did not carry out joint operations with the Libyan spies, as the British and American intelligence services appear to have done.
