Germany’s chief federal prosecutor will prudently inspect the new documents released by  Wikileaks showing evidence of CIA hacking tools, and will launch an investigation if it sees indications of bad behaviour. This isn’t the first time Germany has had issues with U.S. hacking allegations.

“We will initiate an investigation if we see evidence of concrete criminal acts or specific perpetrators,” a spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office told Reuters. “We’re looking at it very carefully.”

A spokesperson for the German Foreign Ministry on said Berlin was in close touch with Washington about the documents, which revealed that the CIA used the U.S. consulate in Frankfurt as a major remote hacking base. Documents even included how to lie when questioned about their role at the consulate when going through immigration at the airport.

Hopefully the Americans don’t get away with saying “we did it to combat terrorism”
