Re: Weasel words...

@malle-herbert and this is exactly Schrems point and why the original Safe Harbour has been torn down.

The US played the national security card, which should have been illegal under SH and Schrems called foul. This means that the whole thing fell down like a house of cards, once the Irish DPA was forced to look into the matter, after having tried to play pass-the-parcel with responsibility.

If the new agreement doesn't guarantee that the US can't pull the national security card, then the new agreement won't fly either.
