NSA and Canada’s CSEC Spying Together

“I think what Edward Snowden has done for us is to tell us something that perhaps we should have realized before he came along, which is that we have to have a debate about intelligence power in a post-911 world. How much do we want? How much do we not want? And where do protection of civil liberties fall in that debate?”

- Wesley Wark, Ph.D., Public and Int'l. Affairs, Univ. of Ottawa, Canada

December 20, 2013 Toronto, Canada - On December 9, 2013, the Canadian Broadcasting Company's News division known as the CBC received exclusive permission from Glenn Greenwald working with American whistleblower Edward Snowden to release another NSA top secret document that reveals Canada had set up covert spying posts around the world for the American National Security Agency. The CBC redacted - blacked out - portions of the documents on its own, but most of the content is quite clear. Subject: NSA Intelligence Relationship with Canada's Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC). “NSA and CSEC cooperate in targeting approximately 20 high-priority countries. .. The intelligence exchange with CSEC covers worldwide national and transnational targets ... and has opened covert sites at the request of NSA.”
