NSA director, General Keith Alexander, have to provide information on NSA surveillance at five meetings of the global Bilderberg Conference

6-29-13  In an interview published last night on the PrivacySurgeon.org blog, Madsen, who has been attacked for holding controversial views on espionage issues, said he had decided to speak out after becoming concerned about the “half story” told by EU politicians regarding the extent of the NSA’s activities in Europe….

Madsen said all seven European countries and the US have access to the Tat 14 fibre-optic cable network running between Denmark and Germany, the Netherlands, France, the UK and the US, allowing them to intercept vast amounts of data, including phone calls, emails and records of users’ access to websites.

He said the public needed to be made aware of the full scale of the communication-sharing arrangements between European countries and the US, which predate the internet and became of strategic importance during the cold war.

The covert relationship between the countries was first outlined in a 2001 report by the European parliament, but their explicit connection with the NSA was not publicised until Madsen decided to speak out.  https://leaksource.wordpress.com/2013/06/30/revealed-secret-european-deals-to-hand-over-private-data-to-america-wayne-madsen-article-pulled-by-guardian/

6-30-13   Madsen’s disclosures in the realm of SIGINT have however have been persistently correct – often expressed years before they were confirmed through official publication. Madsen warned of ECHELON long before that system was confirmed, just as hewarned of widespread unchecked NSA activity years before the emergence of PRISM. He has also been at the forefront of disclosures about specific NSA pograms such as the media intelligence operation FIRSTFRUIT, which covertly monitors journalists….

Madsen also expressed anger over the NSA’s hypocrisy over Edward Snowden.

“Snowden is being roundly condemned by many who say he had no authority or right to provide the public with details of NSA snooping. But what right or authority did NSA director, General Keith Alexander, have to provide information on NSA surveillance at five meetings of the global Bilderberg Conference – two in Virginia and one meeting each in Greece, Spain and Switzerland?”

“Alexander claims he is protecting the American people from a constantly changing number of terrorist attacks. In fact, he is providing information to elites on the methods NSA uses to spy on labor, student, religious and progressive organizations.”

“When Alexander leaks to the elites, he’s thanked. When Snowden does it, he’s called a traitor and a coward.”

General Hayden, former NSA director, etc.  Number two – China is not an enemy of the United States of America. There are no good reason for China to become an enemy of the United States of America. There are logical, non-heroic policy choices available to Beijing and Washington that keep our relationship competitive – occasionally confrontational – but never has to be conflictual.  http://www.privacysurgeon.org/blog/incision/new-post-former-nsa-director-attacks-agency-accountability-and-espionage-by-china/

Yeah, sure, Hayden:  deals with Communist China, built upon the Communist Party relationship with Kissinger, are really neat.   -R.
