Da entsprechende Genehmigungen der Bundesregierung fehlten, haben die Amerikaner womöglich deutsches Recht gebrochen. Das haben monatelange Recherchen der Süddeutschen Zeitung und der Journalistennetzwerke Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) und Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) ergeben.
