All the time she tried to play down the affair, but this goes too far. Now she is outraged and complained with Obama.

I have to repeat: Obama apparently has no sense for what is right and what is wrong. For a lawyer, I find this really strange.

Honestly - spying on leaders of foreign countries is their job. And it is rich expecting privacy when taking public political position.

Spying on our own citizens without a warrant obtained with some reasonable suspicion of a crime is a totally different issue - a crime by itself.

So braking international law is not criminal?

It is.

Really? Cannot find "breaking international law" anywhere in our criminal code:

Maybe you should look up the UN agreements your presidents singed once.

Which agreements? And again, US Criminal Code Part I (see link above) lists all things which are considered crimes, and breaking UN agreements (even IF spying actually broke some strange agreement nobody follows) is not among them.
