Drumbeat of alarm over EU-US law enforcement relationship

Well, maybe two articles don't make a drumbeat, but Mark Richard's article with Leslie Lebl parallels many of the concerns I've expressed here and in print.  Mark is a legendary DAAG in the criminal division at Justice, and a long-time Justice rep in Brussels.  He thinks the US hasn't faced up to the threat that is posed to US law enforcement by the peculiar dynamics of Brussels.  I agree.  (Nice sidenote:  Mark praises the DHS agreement with the EU on PNR as favorable, particularly in contrast to concessions given up by Treasury in a similar negotiation.)
