EU Claims US “Blackmail” Over Passenger Information

In a statement sent to Techdirt, she also noted that, in caving, the EU Parliament “loses its credibility and EU citizens draw the short straw.” Part of the problem is just how unequal the setup is, with the US getting tons of power over EU citizens.

EU should take a less timid stance towards the US.” In the end, she notes that what happened was “almost to the extent of blackmail.”
