    THE PRISM PROGRAM:  OUR #1 SOURCE OF RAW INTELLIGENCE

    ESTABLISHED IN 2007, THE TOP SECRET PRISM program has allowed us to closely track targeted individuals over time. Our ability to conduct live surveillance of search terms has given us important insights into their thoughts and intentions.

    WHERE PRISM’S PARTNERS  AT THE FBI DITU (DATA INTERCEPT TECHNOLOGY UNIT) extract information from the servers of nine major American internet companies: Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, and Apple. This important partnership gives us direct access to audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs for each of these systems.

IT IS AN INSTITUTION BASED ON VOLUNTARY EXCHANGE OF SECRETS, experience and views as well as discussing problems.[1][2] The Club has existed since 1971

    WHAT IS THE FIVE EYES?

    THE FIVE EYES ALLIANCE IS A SECRETIVE, GLOBAL SURVEILLANCE ARRANGEMENT OF STATES COMPRISED OF THE UNITED STATES NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY (NSA), THE UNITED KINGDOM’S GOVERNMENT COMMUNICATIONS HEADQUARTERS(GCHQ), CANADA’S COMMUNICATIONS SECURITY ESTABLISHMENT CANADA (CSEC), THE AUSTRALIAN SIGNALS DIRECTORATE (ASD), AND NEW ZEALAND’S GOVERNMENT COMMUNICATIONS SECURITY BUREAU (GCSB).

    BEGINNING IN 1946, AN ALLIANCE OF FIVE ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES (THE US, THE  UK, AUSTRALIA, CANADA AND NEW ZEALAND) developed a series of  bilateral agreements over more than a decade that became known as the UKUSA agreement, establishing the Five Eyes alliance for the purpose of sharing intelligence, primarily signals intelligence (SIGINT).

    FOR ALMOST 70 YEARS, THIS SECRET POST-WAR ALLIANCE OF FIVE ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES HAS BEEN BUILDING A GLOBAL SURVEILLANCE INFRASTRUCTURE TO “MASTER THE INTERNET” AND SPY ON THE WORLD’S COMMUNICATIONS.

    ———————————————————————-

    WHAT DOES THE FIVE EYES, (AKA PRISM) AGREEMENT SAY?

    Despite being nearly 70 years old, very little is known about the alliance and the agreements that bind them. While the existence of the agreement has been noted in history books and references are often made to it as part of reporting on the intelligence agencies, there is little knowledge or understanding outside the services themselves of exactly what the arrangement comprises.

    Even within the governments of the respective countries, which the intelligence agencies are meant to serve, there has historically been little appreciation for the extent of the arrangement. In fact, it is so secretive that the Australian prime minister reportedly wasn’t informed of its existence until 1973 and no government officially acknowledged the arrangement by name until 1999. Few documents have been released detailing the Five Eyes surveillance arrangement. To read the documents available, click here for the National Archives and here for the NSA’s release of the UKUSA Agreement.

    Here’s what we do know: under the agreement interception, collection, acquisition, analysis, and decryption is conducted by each of the State parties in their respective parts of the globe, and all intelligence information is shared by default. The agreement is wide in scope and establishes jointly-run operations centres where operatives from multiple intelligence agencies of the Five Eyes States work alongside each other.

    Further, tasks are divided between SIGINT agencies, ensuring that the Five Eyes alliance is far more than a set of principles of collaboration. The level of cooperation under the agreement is so complete that the national product is often indistinguishable.

    WHAT’S THE EXTENT OF FIVE EYES COLLABORATION?

    Together the Five Eyes collaborated and developed specific technical programmes of collection and analysis. One senior member of Britain’s intelligence community said “WHEN YOU GET A GCHQ PASS IT GIVES YOU ACCESS TO THE NSA TOO. YOU CAN WALK INTO THE NSA AND FIND GCHQ STAFF HOLDING SENIOR MANAGEMENT POSITIONS, AND VICE VERSA. When the NSA has a piece of intelligence, it will very often ask GCHQ for a second opinion. There have been ups and downs over the years, of course. But in general, the NSA and GCHQ are extremely close allies. They rely on each other.”

    The close relationship between the five States is also evidenced by documents recently released by Edward Snowden. Almost all of the documents include the classification

    “TOP SECRET//COMINT//REL TO USA, AUS, CAN, GBR, NZL”

    or “TOP SECRET//COMINT//REL TO USA, FVEY.”

    THESE CLASSIFICATION MARKINGS INDICATE THE MATERIAL IS TOP-SECRET COMMUNICATIONS INTELLIGENCE (AKA SIGINT) MATERIAL THAT CAN BE RELEASED TO THE US, AUSTRALIA, CANADA, UNITED KINGDOM AND NEW ZEALAND.

    THE PURPOSE OF THE REL TO IS TO IDENTIFY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION THAT A PARTY HAS PREDETERMINED TO BE RELEASABLE (OR HAS ALREADY BEEN RELEASED) THROUGH ESTABLISHED FOREIGN DISCLOSURE PROCEDURES AND CHANNELS, TO A FOREIGN COUNTRY OR INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION.

    The level of co-operation under the UKUSA agreement is so complete that “the national product is often indistinguishable.”

    Another former British spy has said THAT “[C]OOPERATION BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES, PARTICULARLY, IN SIGINT, IS SO CLOSE THAT IT BECOMES VERY DIFFICULT TO KNOW WHO IS DOING WHAT […] IT’S JUST ORGANIZATIONAL MESS.”

    Despite rumours of a “no-spy pact”, there is no prohibition on intelligence-gathering by Five Eyes States on the citizens or residents of other Five Eyes States, although there is a general understanding that citizens will not be directly targeted and where communications are incidentally intercepted there will be an effort to minimize the use and analysis of such communications by the intercepting State.

    Top Secret Documents Leaked

    (June 6, 2013). “US Intelligence Mining Data from Nine U.S. Internet Companies in Broad Secret Program”. The Washington Post. Retrieved June 15,

    In 2013, a top-secret order issued by the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC, also called the FISA Court), which was later leaked to the media from documents culled by Edward Snowden, required a subsidiary of Verizon to provide a daily, on-going feed of all call detail records – including those for domestic calls – to the NSA.

    The leaked information came to light one day after the revelation that the FISA Court had been ordering a subsidiary of telecommunications company Verizon Communications to turn over to the NSA logs tracking all of its customers’ telephone calls.[17][18]

    A classified PowerPoint presentation leaked by Edward Snowden states that PRISM enables “collection directly from the servers” of Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook and other online companies.

    DNI Statement on Activities Authorized Under Section 702 of FISA

    The Guardian and The Washington Post articles (JUNE 6, 2013)  refer to collection of communications pursuant to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

    Activities authorized by Section 702 are subject to oversight by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, the Executive Branch, and Congress. They involve extensive procedures, specifically approved by the court, to ensure that only non-U.S. persons outside the U.S. are targeted, and that minimize the acquisition, retention and dissemination of incidentally acquired information about U.S. persons.
    Section 702 was recently reauthorized by Congress after extensive hearings and debate.
    Information collected under this program is among the most important and valuable foreign intelligence information we collect, and is used to protect our nation from a wide variety of threats.
    The unauthorized disclosure of information about this important and entirely legal program is reprehensible and risks important protections for the security of Americans.

    Blog: National Security Council leakers worried Trump might arrest them

    By Ed Straker

    If you’re a left-leaning member of the National Security Council and you’re unhappy with the duly elected president, what do you do?  Why, leak details of classified discussions and pending operations to the media, of course!

    In a N.Y. Times article, which itself is based on NSC leaks, leakers try to portray the NSC in chaos, but in the process of attempting to do so, they reveal the scope of their disloyalty.

    These are chaotic and anxious days inside the National Security Council, the traditional center of management for a president’s dealings with an uncertain world. Some staff members have turned to encrypted communications to talk with their colleagues, after hearing that Mr. Trump’s top advisers are considering an “insider threat” program that could result in monitoring cellphones and emails for leaks.

    Now, why would NSC staffers talking with their colleagues, presumably about affairs of state, feel the need to encrypt their conversations from the man they work for?  I think the implication is clear – that these conversations are about undermining and leaking information to harm the Trump administration.

    Nervous staff members recently met late at night at a bar a few blocks from the White House and talked about purging their social media accounts of any suggestion of anti-Trump sentiments.

    Why would they need to do that?  Past anti-Trump sentiments are not against the law.  But leaking classified information is.  I think these leakers are trying to keep a lower profile to avoid being caught.

    Last week, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was exploring whether the Navy could intercept and board an Iranian ship to look for contraband weapons possibly headed to Houthi fighters in Yemen.

    White House officials said that [the operation was cancelled]… because news of the impending operation leaked, a threat to security that has helped fuel the move for the insider threat program.

    This is leakers in action.  But instead of writing an article about their illegality, this is only mentioned in passing, as part of the Times’ main interest in portraying the NSC as being in chaos.  What amazes me is how the Times doesn’t seem to think revealing bureaucrats leaking classified information is even a problem; the paper is are so disconnected from reality that its writers think anything, including disregarding national security laws, is justified, all in the pursuit of Trump.

    [Some NSC staffers have left but] Many of those who remain, who see themselves as apolitical civil servants, have been disturbed by displays of overt partisanship. At an all-hands meeting about two weeks into the new administration, Ms. McFarland told the group it needed to “make America great again,” numerous staff members who were there said. New Trump appointees are carrying coffee mugs with that Trump campaign slogan into meetings with foreign counterparts, one staff member said.

    Why is it partisan to have a mug featuring the slogan of the president…in his own White House?  When Obama was president, do you think staff avoided pro-Obama slogans?  I’m sure they didn’t.  These people are just appalled to be confronted with direct evidence that Trump is their president.  It shows that they don’t have either the temperament or the loyalty to do their jobs.

     WikiLeaks NOVEMBER 23, 2010 THE PRIVATE FACE OF HILLARY AND HER SERVER

    Report: Clinton mulled killing Wikileaks’ Julian Assange with drone strike

    Tuesday NOVEMBER 23, 2010 shortly after 8 a.m. Clinton met with staff on Mahogany Row at the State Department to attempt to formulate a strategy to avert Assange’s plans to release an enormous batch of 250,000 secret cables, dating from 1966 to 2010.

    Clinton’s State Department was getting pressure from President Obama and his White House inner circle, as well as heads of state internationally, to try and cutoff Assange’s delivery of the cables and if that effort failed, then to forge a strategy to minimize the administration’s public embarrassment over the contents of the cables.

    Hence, Clinton’s early morning November meeting of State’s top brass who floated various proposals to stop, slow or spin the Wikileaks contamination.

    That is when a frustrated Clinton, sources said, at some point blurted out a controversial query.

    “CAN’T WE JUST DRONE THIS GUY?” CLINTON OPENLY INQUIRED, offering a simple remedy to silence Assange and smother Wikileaks via a planned military drone strike, according to State Department sources.

    The statement drew laughter from the room which quickly died off when the Secretary kept talking in a terse manner, sources said.

    Clinton said Assange, after all, was a relatively soft target, “walking around” freely and thumbing his nose without any fear of reprisals from the United States. Clinton was upset about Assange’s previous 2010 records releases,

    Feb 4, 2013 – Ten Years After Powell’s U.N. Speech, Old Hands Are Ready for More Blood … The Washington Post was more war-crazed, headlining its editorial “Irrefutable” and declaring that after …. They’re old hands, dripping with blood.

    By Norman Solomon

    When Secretary of State Colin Powell spoke to the U.N. Security Council on February 5, 2003, countless journalists in the United States extolled him for a masterful performance — making the case that Saddam Hussein’s Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

    THE FACT THAT THE SPEECH LATER BECAME NOTORIOUS SHOULD NOT OBSCURE HOW EASILY TRUTH BECOMES IRRELEVANT IN THE PROCESS OF GOING TO WAR.

    Ten years later — with Powell’s speech a historic testament of shameless deception leading to vast carnage — we may not remember the extent of the fervent accolades. At the time, fawning praise was profuse across the USA’s mainline media spectrum, including the nation’s reputedly great newspapers.

    The New York Times editorialized that Powell “was all the more convincing because he dispensed with apocalyptic invocations of a struggle of good and evil and focused on shaping a sober, factual case against Mr. Hussein’s regime.” The Washington Post was more war-crazed, headlining its editorial “Irrefutable” and declaring that after Powell’s U.N. presentation “it is hard to imagine how anyone could doubt that Iraq possesses weapons of mass destruction.”

    Yet basic flaws in Powell’s U.N. speech were abundant. Slanted translations of phone intercepts rendered them sinister. Interpretations of unclear surveillance photos stretched to concoct the worst. Summaries of cherry-picked intelligence detoured around evidence that Iraq no longer had WMDs. Ballyhooed documents about an Iraqi quest for uranium were forgeries.

    Assumptions about U.S. prerogatives also went largely unquestioned. In response to Powell’s warning that the U.N. Security Council would place itself “in danger of irrelevance” by failing to endorse a U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, the adulation from U.S. media embraced the notion that the United Nations could only be “relevant” by bending to Washington’s wishes. A combination of cooked intelligence and geopolitical arrogance, served up to rapturous reviews at home, set the stage for what was to come.

    The invasion began six weeks after Powell’s tour de force at the United Nations. Soon, a search for Iraqi weapons of mass destruction was in full swing. None turned up. In January 2004 — 11 months after Powell’s U.N. speech — the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace released a report concluding that top officials in the Bush administration “systematically misrepresented the threat from Iraq’s WMD and ballistic missile programs.”

    Left twisting in the wind was Powell’s speech to the U.N. Security Council, where he’d issued a “conservative estimate” that Iraq “has a stockpile of between 100 and 500 tons of chemical weapons agent.” The secretary of state had declared: “There can be no doubt that Saddam Hussein has biological weapons and the capability to rapidly produce more, many more.”

    Nineteen months after the speech, in mid-September 2004, Powell made a terse public acknowledgment. “I think it’s unlikely that we will find any stockpiles,” he said. But no gingerly climb-down could mitigate the bloodshed that continued in Iraq.

    A decade ago, Colin Powell played a starring role in a recurring type of political dramaturgy. Scripts vary, while similar dramas play out on a variety of scales. Behind a gauzy curtain, top officials engage in decision-making on war that gives democracy short shrift. For the public, crucial information that bears on the wisdom of warfare remains opaque or out of sight.

    Among the powerful and not-so-powerful, in mass media and on Capitol Hill, the default position is still to defer to presidential momentum for war. Public candor and policy introspection remain in short supply.

    The new secretary of state, John Kerry — like the one he just replaced, Hillary Clinton — voted for the Iraq war resolution in the Senate, nearly four months before Powell went to the U.N. Security Council. During the crucial lead-up months, Senator Kerry was at pains to show his avid support for an invasion. In early October 2002, appearing for an hour on MSNBC’s “Hardball” program live from The Citadel as an audience of young cadets filled the screen, Kerry said: “I’m prepared to go. I think people understand that Saddam Hussein is a danger.”

    Since then, Kerry has publicly said that he would have voted for the war resolution even if he’d known that Iraq actually had no weapons of mass destruction. But on the Senate floor, Kerry prefaced his vote for war by rhetorically demanding to know why Saddam Hussein was “attempting to develop nuclear weapons when most nations don’t even try.” The senator emphasized that “according to intelligence, Iraq has chemical and biological weapons.”

    Months later, when Powell trumpeted that theme at the United Nations, the landslide of testimonials included this one from a future U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice: “I think he has proved that Iraq has these weapons and is hiding them, and I don’t think many informed people doubted that.”

    Meanwhile, the Washington Post edition with the editorial headlined “Irrefutable” also included unanimous agreement from each of the opinion columns on the facing page.

    Longtime Post columnist Richard Cohen attested to Powell’s unquestionable veracity with these words: “The evidence he presented to the United Nations — some of it circumstantial, some of it absolutely bone-chilling in its detail — had to prove to anyone that Iraq not only hasn’t accounted for its weapons of mass destruction but without a doubt still retains them. Only a fool — or possibly a Frenchman – could conclude otherwise.”

    Inches away, another venerable pundit held forth. Powell managed to “present the world with a convincing and detailed X-ray of Iraq’s secret weapons and terrorism programs yesterday,” wrote Jim Hoagland, a Post foreign-policy specialist. He concluded: “To continue to say that the Bush administration has not made its case, you must now believe that Colin Powell lied in the most serious statement he will ever make, or was taken in by manufactured evidence. I don’t believe that. Today, neither should you.”

    Fast forward to the current era. What are Richard Cohen and Jim Hoagland writing — about Iran?

    On February 6, 2012, exactly nine years after proclaiming that “only a fool” could doubt Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, Cohen’s column declared flatly: “The ultimate remedy is Iranian regime change.” Four months ago, Cohen wrapped up a column by observing “there is still time for Iran to back down before President Obama’s red line — no nuclear weapon — is crossed. This is a war whose time has not yet come.” Not yet.

    Hoagland — a decade after telling readers they should put their trust in Colin Powell’s “convincing and detailed X-ray of Iraq’s secret weapons” — is now making clear that his patience with Iran is wearing thin. “Until recently,” Hoagland wrote five weeks ago, “I had been relatively comfortable with Obama’s assertions that there is time to reach a peaceful resolution with Iran.” Hoagland’s column went on to say that military strikes on Iran “threaten disastrous political and economic consequences for the world,” so diplomatic efforts should try to avert the need for such strikes — before they become necessary.

    So goes the dominant spectrum of opinionating and policymaking for war, from eagerness to reluctance. Propaganda lead-ups to warfare are as varied as wars themselves; and yet every style of such propaganda relies on deception, and every war is unspeakable horror.

    After jumping onto ghastly bandwagons for one war after another, the nation’s media establishment is available to do it again. So is the current U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. So is the new secretary of state. They’re old hands, dripping with blood. They have not had enough.
