Funny from US politicians. It is so amusing to hear the Pompeo’s accusations on Chinese espionage from the words of the Secretary State. USA still are the commander in chief of the (now much waker) UKUSA espionage network, Echelon and its epigons, unveiled in 2001 by the Greenwald/Snowden leaks published by The Guardian. Still now their networks managed by NSA and other agencies are suspected to intercept and spy any communication and information all over the world.
“It’s quite ironic that Pompeo chose the Richard Nixon Presidential Library to give his speech, which many US media outlets previously predicted would be a “new cold war declaration.”
Here you can download the 2003-05 SIDToday files from the SNOWDEN archive taken from NSA , the original news from the Guardian, and the Glenn Greenwald’s pages of The Intercept that first brought the NSA scandal to the world’s attention, with the last 2006-19 files. Such files reveals how a revolutionary U.S. intelligence mapping system made European allies complicit in targeted killings in Afghanistan and was later deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border. It also discloses that U.S. officials drew up a new intelligence-sharing “framework” in response to pressure from Israeli spy bosses who wanted help with assassinations; that Norwegian intelligence knew about the sinking of the Russian Kursk submarine much sooner than officials have previously said; and that a power outage took down the NSA’s nerve center on a hot summer day in 2006. A zipped copy here, and the updates here.
We may also remember when NSA spied on the European Commission (President Romano Prodi), as well as on the German Government (Angela Merkel ruling). And this not ancient history. Or the recent scandals affecting the most famous red striped social networks caught deeply spying their own customers lives, or found selling their information to political organisations.
On July 18th, 2020 the European Union’s highest court made clear—once again—that the US government’s mass surveillance programs are incompatible with the privacy rights of EU citizens.
