Governmental spying update

By Tom Carter in the USA:

FISA records document “daily violations” by government spy agencies

14 September 2013

FISA court records declassified Tuesday show that government spy agencies systematically violated court orders in order to conduct illegal spying on Americans, while lying in court as to the extent of their activities. Previously secret rulings show that the Obama administration was found to be committing “daily violations” of court orders related to its spying activities.

These records came to light as a result of litigation under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). (The files can be accessed here.)

For years the German intelligence agencies ran a secret joint operation with the CIA codenamed Project 6: here.

Germany’s domestic intelligence service (BfV) supplies data to the American National Security Agency (NSA) and cooperates closely with the US spy agency. This emerged from a secret German government paper disclosed by the Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper: here.

NSA spying on international banking transactions: here.

Sorry for infrequent posting. I have big Internet connection problems now. I don’t know when they will be solved.
