This article is total rubbish. The CIA spies on Germany, France and even (yes even) the UK at times. Of course it spies on the UAE.

who could forget the Abu Omar Case, where the CIA kidnapped an individual in Milan. but they left evidence due to sloppy OPSEC. so we know for sure they used to do much worse. I guess most spying activities don't warrant such a detailed investigation though, so we never find out.

the Black Hat 2013 talk on this is a great watch: https://youtube.com/watch?v=bM0PmwOlifE

Agree. It's how they figured out Kurt Hendricks was in Dubai.
