Obama accuses EU of attacking American tech companies
By Thom Holwerda on 2015-02-18 00:14:55

Barack Obama has angered officials in Europe after suggesting that investigations by the European Union into companies like Google and Facebook were "commercially driven." In an interview with Recode, the president claimed that European "service providers who ... can't compete with ours, are essentially trying to set up some roadblocks for our companies to operate effectively there." The truth, however, is more nuanced than this.

Right, because the US would never do anything to protect its own companies above foreign ones.
