Actually, the BNS snooping on international links isn't really
a surprise - they've been doing that on telephony forever, and
the legal base is probably the same for the internet. (And the
logical place to do so are the DeCIX connections.)

I don't expect them to be inside Deutsch Telekom, but then,
I wouldn't be surprised. Although I must admin that, while
I had the dots (foreign trunk monitoring) I never made the
connection previously that that means they get to see a lot
of google/gmail traffic of germans.
