Germany’s justice minister, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, demands an explanation from Washington over NSA and CIA spying, saying that if confirmed, US behaviour “was reminiscent of the actions of enemies during the cold war”.






New NSA leaks show how US is bugging its European allies

Exclusive: Edward Snowden papers reveal 38 targets including EU, France and Italy

Berlin accuses Washington of cold war tactics

The Guardian, Sunday 30 June 2013 16.28 EDT

US intelligence services are spying on the European Union mission in New York and its embassy in Washington, according to the latest top secret US National Security Agency documents leaked by the whistleblower Edward Snowden.
One document lists 38 embassies and missions, describing them as "targets". It details an extraordinary range of spying methods used against each target, from bugs implanted in electronic communications gear to taps into cables to the collection of transmissions with specialised antennae.
Along with traditional ideological adversaries and sensitive Middle Eastern countries, the list of targets includes the EU missions and the French, Italian and Greek embassies, as well as a number of other American allies, including Japan, Mexico, South Korea, India and Turkey. The list in the September 2010 document does not mention the UK, Germany or other western European states.
One of the bugging methods mentioned is codenamed Dropmire, which, according to a 2007 document, is "implanted on the Cryptofax at the EU embassy, DC" – an apparent reference to a bug placed in a commercially available encrypted fax machine used at the mission. The NSA documents note the machine is used to send cables back to foreign affairs ministries in European capitals.
The documents suggest the aim of the bugging exercise against the EU embassy in central Washington is to gather inside knowledge of policy disagreements on global issues and other rifts between member states.
The new revelations come at a time when there is already considerable anger across the EU over earlier evidence provided by Snowden of NSA eavesdropping on America's European allies.
Germany's justice minister, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, demanded an explanation from Washington, saying that if confirmed, US behaviour "was reminiscent of the actions of enemies during the cold war".
The German magazine Der Spiegel reported at the weekend that some of the bugging operations in Brussels targeting the EU's Justus Lipsius building – a venue for summit and ministerial meetings in the Belgian capital – were directed from within Nato headquarters nearby.
The US intelligence service codename for the bugging operation targeting the EU mission at the United Nations is "Perdido". Among the documents leaked by Snowden is a floor plan of the mission in midtown Manhattan. The methods used against the mission include the collection of data transmitted by implants, or bugs, placed inside electronic devices, and another covert operation that appears to provide a copy of everything on a targeted computer's hard drive.
The eavesdropping on the EU delegation to the US, on K Street in Washington, involved three different operations targeted on the embassy's 90 staff. Two were electronic implants and one involved the use of antennas to collect transmissions.
Although the latest documents are part of an NSA haul leaked by Snowden, it is not clear in each case whether the surveillance was being exclusively done by the NSA – which is most probable as the embassies and missions are technically overseas – or by the FBI or the CIA, or a combination of them. The 2010 document describes the operation as "close access domestic collection".
The operation against the French mission to the UN had the covername "Blackfoot" and the one against its embassy in Washington was "Wabash". The Italian embassy in Washington was known to the NSA as both "Bruneau" and "Hemlock".
The eavesdropping of the Greek UN mission was known as "Powell" and the operation against its embassy was referred to as "Klondyke".
Snowden, the 30-year-old former NSA contractor and computer analyst whose leaks have ignited a global row over the extent of US and UK electronic surveillance, fled from his secret bolthole in Hong Kong a week ago. His plan seems to have been to travel to Ecuador via Moscow, but he is in limbo at Moscow airport after his US passport was cancelled, and without any official travel documents issued from any other country.

    1. A UN report says Israeli settlements violate human rights and could be prosecuted as war crimes, but many Israeli settlers consider themselves patriots. So what hope is there for peace in the Middle East?

      In a country where settlers are now one of the biggest and strongest political movements, Dani Dayan, a Netanyahu advisor and the outgoing chairman of the Yesha (Settlers) Council, says there is no two-state solution to the conflict and that he is happy with the status quo.

      Dayan has been a major in the Israeli army, a successful IT entrepreneur, and a University lecturer. In 1999 he became an executive committee member of the Yesha Council, which represents the settler movement, and in 2007, its chairman until February 2013. He completely revitalised the movement until his resignation to campaign openly for Binyamin Netanyahu.

      Mehdi Hasan goes head to head with Dayan at the Oxford Union, discussing whether Zionism is a colonialist project, whether the so-called apartheid roads are just an urban legend - and more importantly, what is the solution to this protracted conflict?

      Dayan claims settlements are irreversible but preaches in favour of dismantling the wall. With a lively audience and robust debate from the expert panel, Head to Head is tackling the hard issues surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

      Are the settlements a natural extension of the Israeli state or the single biggest obstacle to peace in the Middle East? Will the Palestinians ever be able to build an independent and viable state?


      ---------------------

      This debate will be at The Oxford Union:

    4. Now it is TRUE that the NSA has spied on Allies for decades.

      The USS Liberty? NSA spy ship in a war zone, on an illegal mission spying on Israel, 100 miles from where it was ORDERED to be.

      Not the 1st time the NSA did things against the interests of the USA.

      Those Americans, killed by Israel? The blame rests on the hands of the NSA.

      Just as the concept "suicide by cop" is understood, those servicemen were PUT into a deathly trap by the NSA.

      That is if it was not an "accident" as Deuce claims and it was "murder" by Israel.

      The NSA should be held responsible.

    Here's is part of an article by Tom Friedman.

    THE former C.I.A. analyst Paul R. Pillar asked this question in a recent essay in The National Interest: Why are we seeing so many popular street revolts in democracies? Speaking specifically of Turkey and Brazil, but posing a question that could be applied to Egypt, Israel, Russia, Chile and the United States, Pillar asks: “The governments being protested against were freely and democratically elected. With the ballot box available, why should there be recourse to the street?”

    It is an important question, and the answer, I believe, is the convergence of three phenomena. The first is the rise and proliferation of illiberal “majoritarian” democracies. In Russia, Turkey and today’s Egypt, we have seen mass demonstrations to protest “majoritarianism” — ruling parties that were democratically elected (or “sort of” in Russia’s case) but interpret their elections as a writ to do whatever they want once in office, including ignoring the opposition, choking the news media and otherwise behaving in imperious or corrupt ways, as if democracy is only about the right to vote, not rights in general and especially minority rights.

    What the protesters in Turkey, Russia and Egypt all have in common is a powerful sense of “theft,” a sense that the people who got elected are stealing something more than money: the people’s voice and right to participate in governance. Nothing can make a new democrat, someone who just earned the right to vote, angrier.

      "One year is more than enough" was one of the slogans shouted by protesters across Egypt yesterday to urge the president, Mohammed Morsi, to resign.



      Millions of Egyptians from different social, religious and political backgrounds rallied in Cairo and other main cities yesterday to put an end to the cumulative failures of the Muslim Brotherhood-led government before it is too late.

      By launching what could be confidently described as "a second revolution", Egyptians are not only trying to topple an emerging dictatorship but also remove a rock that is standing in their path towards a liberal democratic state that safeguards civil rights and freedoms and respects the will of its citizens to decide their future. They are not calling for the mere resignation of the president but also for the setting of a date for new presidential elections as soon as possible.

    2. If those "settlements" are illegal by international standards? So be it.

      In America? Illegals are getting legalized all the time.

      Currently there are 11 MILLION illegals that will be folded into the nation and given amnesty.

      The "settlements" by Jews? are a fact that cannot be changed.

      Just accept it. You cannot get rid of 11 million illegals in America and you cannot get rid of Jews living in settlements and you cannot get rid of millions of arabs in europe..

  3. Federal Reserve officials really don’t like the word “tapering” — one of the most popular buzzwords in the markets these days.

    ...

    The hangup for Fed officials is the word “tapering” suggests a slow, steady and predictable reduction from the current level of $85 billion a month at a succession of Fed meetings, say to $65 billion per month, then to $45 billion and so on. And that’s not necessarily what Fed officials envision.

  9. Oregon parents who choose to protect their children from the horrors of vaccines will now have to jump through a slew of unconstitutional government hoops, including subjecting themselves to state-coerced reeducation training and state-endorsed medical propaganda. This, thanks to the passage of a new bill recently signed into law by Oregon Governor and American traitor John Kitzhaber that makes opting out of vaccines more difficult.

    ...

    A direct swipe at parents’ Fourth Amendment rights to not have their children’s bodies seized by the government, this new vaccination exemption bill is a direct affront both to individual and religious liberty in the state of Oregon. The information to be presented to parents as part of the “educational video” requirement will reportedly come straight from the insanely biased U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), which is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the vaccine industry.

    ...

    Though SB 132 still recognizes that parents have a God-given right to oppose vaccines, its intent is to chip away at this freedom by intimidating and brainwashing parents into simply complying. This is evidenced by the fact that many of the bill’s proponents openly compared it to a similar bill passed in Washington state back in 2011 that successfully trimmed down the vaccination exemption rate by about 25 percent.

  10. It is good to know that Kerry has not lost his tin ear

    Kerry responds to US bugging claims

    US Secretary of State John Kerry has responded to allegations that the US bugged the offices of its allies, saying its activities were "not unusual" in international relations.

    There has been outrage in Europe following claims that the US bugged EU embassies and targeted allies like France, Italy and Greece.

    A top EU official has warned the affair could put a massive trade pact at risk.

    The allegations come from documents apparently leaked by an ex-CIA analyst.

    Edward Snowden is believed to be at an airport in Moscow, and is seeking a destination safe from prosecution by US authorities.

    5. The Italians are good allies.

      "Italy with a nationalist, totalitarian, and class collaborationist agenda that abolished representative democracy, repressed socialist, left wing and liberal forces, and pursued an aggressive foreign policy aimed at forcefully forging Italy as a world power—a "New Roman Empire".[12]

      The Italian air force attacked and bombed a field hospital run by the Swedish Red Cross - a war crime in itself. Count Carl Gustaf von Rosen served as an ambulance pilot and he later recounted that the hospital was marked with Red Crosses. He also confirmed that mustard gas was used. The Swedish Red Cross secured photographic evidence of Ethiopian civilians with damages from mustard gas.[35]
      The Italians attempted to justify their use of chemical weapons by citing the exception to the Geneva Protocol restrictions that referenced acceptable use for reprisal against illegal acts of war. They stated that the Ethiopians had tortured or killed their prisoners and wounded soldiers.[36]
      The Italians delivered the poison gas by special artillery canisters and with bombers of the Italian Royal Air Force. While the poorly equipped Ethiopians experienced some success against modern weaponry, they did not understand the "terrible rain that burned and killed."[37] The permission was given because the Ethiopians used Dum-dum bullets (the Hague Convention of 1899, Declaration III, prohibited the use in international warfare of bullets called "Dum-dum", which easily expand or flatten in the body) against the Italians from the start of the war: this provoked the retaliation of the Italians, who used gas against the Ethiopians in the last months of the war.[38] However, some historians (for example, Anthony Mockler) consider the effect of this gas weapon in battle negligible, like in the report written by the US Major Norman Fiske.

    6. The Italian Empire (Italian: Impero Italiano) was created after the Kingdom of Italy joined other European powers in establishing colonies overseas during the "scramble for Africa". Modern Italy, as a unified state, had only existed from 1861. By this time, France, Spain, Portugal, Britain and the Netherlands, had been carving out large empires for several hundred years. One of the last remaining areas open to colonisation was on the African continent.
      By the outbreak of World War I in 1914, Italy had annexed Eritrea, Somalia, Libya and the Dodecanese Islands; it was also one of the European concession holders in Tientsin. Italy was defeated in its first attempt to conquer Ethiopia in the First Italo-Ethiopian War of 1895-1896 with Ethiopia receiving modern weapons and support from Russia, but succeeded in conquering it in the Second Italo-Ethiopian War of 1935-1936.[1] During World War I, the Italian army captured Albania, which was declared an Italian protectorate in 1917,[2] and, by the end of hostilities in November 1918, had captured the entire portion of Dalmatia that had been guaranteed to Italy by the Treaty of London.[3] The Entente Allies forced Italy to concede much of its captured territory in Dalmatia to the new state of Yugoslavia, with Italy only keeping the city of Zadar; in 1920, they also pressured Italy to remove its army from Albania.
      The Fascist government under Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, which came to power in 1922, sought to increase the size of the empire further. In the late 1930s, Mussolini intended to increase Italy's power and influence by seeking to break up the Anglo-French alliance by being more conciliatory and cooperative with Britain, while being aggressive towards France.[4] Italy sided with Germany during World War II and initially enjoyed successes. Italy occupied Albania, part of Greece, Croatia, Slovenia and part of Egypt, reaching its maximum expansion in 1943.

    7. Italian concentration camps in Libya
      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


      Ten thousand inmates were kept at the concentration camp in El Agheila.
      Italy maintained several concentration camps in Eastern Libya during the later phase of its occupation of that country. After the initial invasion in 1911, the Italian control over much of the country remained ineffective. In the face of the armed Arab opposition, mainly in Cyrenaica under the leadership of Omar Mukhtar, Italian forces under the Generals Pietro Badoglio and Rodolfo Graziani waged punitive pacification campaigns which turned into brutal and bloody acts of repression.
      The Frontier Wire, a barbed wire fence was built from the Mediterranean to the oasis of Al-Jaghbub to sever lines critical to the resistance. Soon afterwards, the colonial administration began the wholesale deportation of the people of the Jebel Akhdar to deny the rebels the support of the local population. The forced migration of more than 100,000 people ended in concentration camps in Suluq, El Magrun, Abyar and El Agheila where tens of thousands died in squalid conditions.

      Delete
    8. Estimates of the people who died in these camps vary. It is estimated that the number of Libyans who died - killed either through combat or mainly through starvation and disease - is at a minimum of 80,000 or even up to one third of the Cyrenaican population. Pappé estimates that between 1928 and 1932 the Italian military "killed half the Bedouin population (directly or through starvation in camps)."[1] In his book Cerinaica today,Dr. Todesky, who in 1931 was the director of the Italian Army Health Services, states "From May 1930 to September 1930 more than 80,000 Libyans were forced to leave their land and live in concentration camps, they were taken 300 at a time watched by soldiers to make sure that the Libyans go directly to the concentration camps" and "By the end of 1930 all Libyans who live in tents were forced to go and live in the camps. 55% of the Libyans died in the camps." Italian historian Gentile wrote that this figure was excessive, and only a few thousands died, mainly of disease and starvation.

      Morsi was elected in a legal election. I know the concept twitches your synapses but keep trying, you’ll get it.
