USA: Congressional Research Service: US-EU Cooperation Against Terrorism (pdf):

"Some observers note that U.S.-EU counterterrorism cooperation is complicated by different EU and member state competencies, and U.S. policy references. An increasing number of policy areas relevant to counterterrorism—including data protection, customs, and visas—fall under the competence of the Union (i.e., EU members adopt a common policy, agree to abide by its terms, and negotiate collectively with other countries). However, at times, the United States continues to prefer to negotiate on some issues—such as the VWP—bilaterally, and observers assert that this disconnect can lead to frictions in the U.S.-EU relationship."
