Dear Diary, I Hope No One Reads This

Thanks to @kroppzoich2011 for tweeting this German cartoon. Based on my recollection of cursive script and some struggles with Google Translate, I believe the words read:
Dear Diary,
My friend Obama has promised me firmly that my phone is no longer bugged!! That is so sweet of him!
Of course, we know how that turned out, don't we. German government staff being accused of spying for the US. Germany ditching Email in favour of typewriters, and various other countermeasures.
