Reporter: Obama needs to 'show some regret' over spying allegations in Germany

(CNN) – The German government said Thursday it is expelling a person it describes as the representative of U.S. foreign intelligence services based at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin.

The move comes after two allegations emerged of Germans spying for the United States over the last week, claims prompting an investigation by German prosecutors of a suspect accused of passing secrets.

Asking an intelligence chief to pack up and go is a request normally reserved for pariah states like North Korea or Iran.

Just how much trust has the U.S. lost for Germany to do this?

Der Spiegel correspondent Holger Stark weighs in.
