A spokesman for Germany's foreign ministry said on Thursday, The CIA station chief in Berlin who was told to leave by Germany due to new allegations of U.S. spying has now left the country. The scandal has cooled relations between Berlin and Washington to levels not seen since Merkel's predecessor opposed the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. U.S. officials said the station chief had not been expelled from the country or officially declared "persona non grata" by the German government, but had been asked to leave.
