There seems to be some confusion over this story. It did not originate from the Guardian, but from the Observer. The Guardian must aggregate or something stories from the Observer. They've taken down the story while the Guardian editorial board can investigate it. Greenwald has nothing to do with the story.

Hopefully this can be clarified soon. If true, it could have extreme repercussions for the upcoming German elections.

The Guardian article (which is listed as the source) has been "taken down pending an investigation".

See my other comment in this thread for more information.
