Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 2572: Angela Merkel's, Mobile Phones and Eavesdropping - Body Language Tells (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

In this brief video of Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor - and the most powerful woman in the World - voices her concern over the alleged NSA's massive collection of phone data on tens of millions of Europeans - including the direct tapping into Mrs. Merkel's and 35 other Heads-of-State Mobile phones.

Intriguingly, on several occasions in this particular video, the German leader displayed multiple mild fear expressions. The best example of this occurred during the 0:22 - 0:23 segment - captured below in the still image. Note the corners of her mouth pull backwards and slightly down. This is subtle yet a very significant nonverbal signal of fear. Notice also the lack of any fear-related nonverbal indicators of the eyes or neck.

What nonverbal manifestations of Anger did Angela display in this Video?

What body language is present which signifies Mrs. Merkel's high-alpha personality?
