    Worse yet, the article is mistaking Bavaria with Germany.

    EDIT: Staatssekretär? LOL ice box it is.
    Maaßen is not a politician but a Beamter. Hence he will be the Beamteter Staatssekretär in the Interior Ministry. For non-Germanophiles: Beamte are state servants, the Staatssekretär is the highest position possible for those. A Staatssekretär is the deputy chief of a ministry. There are two in each ministry, one a political appointee in the sense of being a politician, one being a career servant. Maaßen is the latter. They are tasked with running the daily business of the ministry, its administration and less with shaping policy as the political appointee would be. They can however be appointed and retired by the current government.
    Yes, minister...

    Volkswagen and BASF are reportedly shutting down operations in Iran, at least according to the US ambassador to Germany. He believes Washington had something to do with the decision. The move by those companies takes the row over the Iran Nuclear Deal to another level.
    Just over one year since it re-entered the Iranian market, Volkswagen agreed to cease nearly all of its business operations in Iran, US news agency Bloomberg reports. VW would maintain some business with Iran "under a humanitarian exception," according to the report.

    You should never assume. You know what happens when you assume. You make an ass out of you and me because that's how it's spelled.

    We don't need to assume, we know you're deeply unfunny and have no sense of humour, it's been scientifically proven through years of observation of the German habitat.
