New Snowden Document Implies NSA May Be Putting Israel’s Security Ahead of America’s

NSA Routinely Shares Raw Intelligence Data With Israel WITHOUT First Sifting It To Remove Information About US Citizens

The following leaked slide from Edward Snowden was released today by Glenn Greenwald in his new book, No Place to Hide:

If you can’t read the slide, it says:

Balancing the SIGINT exchange equally between US and Israeli needs has been a constant challenge in the last decade, it arguably tilted heavily in favor of Israeli security concerns. 9/11 came, and went, with NSA’s only true Third Party CT relationship being driven almost totally by the needs of the partner.

That is a stunning statement. It implies that the signals intelligence exchange between the American and Israeli governments has been driven almost entirely by the NSA giving information to the Israelis, instead of Israel giving information to the U.S. … even though we were the ones attacked on 9/11.

Remember, the raw data on American citizens collected by the NSA is shared with Israel. As the Guardian reported in September:

The National Security Agency routinely shares raw intelligence data with Israel without first sifting it to remove information about US citizens, a top-secret document provided to the Guardian by whistleblower Edward Snowden reveals.

***

According to the agreement, the intelligence being shared would not be filtered in advance by NSA analysts to remove US communications. “NSA routinely sends ISNU [the Israeli Sigint National Unit] minimized and unminimized raw collection”, it says.

***

A much stricter rule was set for US government communications found in the raw intelligence. The Israelis were required to “destroy upon recognition” any communication “that is either to or from an official of the US government“. Such communications included those of “officials of the executive branch (including the White House, cabinet departments, and independent agencies), the US House of Representatives and Senate (member and staff) and the US federal court system (including, but not limited to, the supreme court)”.

This not only raises major privacy concerns for American citizens, but it might mean that Israel is spying on the American Congress and other high-level politicians.

We have nothing against Israel, but – as American citizens – we want our intelligence agencies to put the American people and American security first.

        Do the world a favor and take your mindless body and shitless offspring outside and shoot them in their empty heads. Then, shoot yourself twice, Jews are too stupid to hit their targets the first time. Good luck in hell you stinking, inbred Jew!

            We see your attempt at wit is as limited and tired as your pitiable denouncement.

            Pitiable in your Idaho bunker, no doubt. Among decent people, not so much.

          • Ir Travis

            Though I’ve nothing against Idaho or decent people, your continuation carries as much fail as your attempted wit did.

            BTW do you consider baby molesting Mohels “decent people”? Did your parents before they handed you over to one to be butchered and then orally sucked by one during your metzitzat b’peh?

        watch your filthy treasonous Jew mouth, your grandparents talked as cavalier when they thought they could destroy Germany with impunity also, until 1939

    What do they mean by “might be”??? Maybe it isn’t just AIPAC producing these 100-0 Israel uber alles votes in the Senate.
    I would really like to know who signed off on this Israeli-US agreement. Who are they and what are their priorities? Clearly they aren’t putting the US first.

    • Veri1138

      The American people are not first anymore. They are only needed to be elected, only given a narrow choice between two pre-selected, pre-approved candidates from two wings of The Money Party.

      We are just military support for Israel, and one only has to look at how they treat the Palestinians to see how we would be treated if they had no use for us. Why do you think we have so many in congress with duel citizenship? I think one thing we could do right away is pass an amendment that members of government may not hold duel citizenship and thus duel alliance.

    I put in your Wilkerson/oligarchy post this comment, and I guess it goes HERE, too:

    “And the BIG thing is: it’s FOREIGN as well as domestic oligarchs running the U.S. military. Oligarchs have no country boundaries. The U.S. has the top military and they use it as well.”

      No Conflict of Interest there. Nope, not one bit.

  • Change You Can Keep

    I always wondered why the Israelis were literally dancing on the George Washington bridge on 9/11, this story seems to answer that question. Incredible. Wonder when Snowden or Greenwald will release the slides showing Israeli intelligence agencies involved or at minimum prior knowledge of the attack.

    • RealityColin

      It was Liberty Park. Mossad agents subsequently arrested, as reported by the New York Times.

    is anyone surprised? … the Clinton White House knew if they didn’t want israel to know something they needed to have a face-to-face, nothing could be written or transmitted electronically

    Hey…you assholes bought this with your worship of Israel.

  • Wilhem von Uberleiferung

    Yeah, you don’t have anything against Israel… yet.

    Just wait until you find it was the Israelis, in coordination with their American counterparts within PNAC, who were the ones who had planned and executed 9/11.

    Narus, currently “owned” by boeing, was at the time of the Mark Klein/AT&T lawsuit, very open about its Israeli ownership and development.

    If this is true, then Right on NSA. I will support that. But you still need to be dismantled and purged from power.

    • not authorized

      I am starting to lean towards the NSA being on our side. They are monitoring a “foreign nation” 100%. Somehow, I do not think they mean “ours”. That would be some pretty good doublespeak to convince someone in service, that the US is that foreign nation, when reminded of the Oath they took.

  • ClubToTheHead

    The Master Class, based in the US, unifies the Chosen People of Israel and the Master Race, now operating from Kiev.

    Psychopathology is normalized in the powerful, so what validity does any election they organize have if only validated by the willfully ignorant and gullible?

  • Rehmat

    UK’s daily Guardian’s Jewish columnist, Glenn Greenwald, exposed NSA-Israel connection early last year.

    On April 3, 2012, James Bamford exposed several shady firms with ties to Israel, such as Amdocs, Naru and Verint, which are providing wiretapping equipment and monitoring NSA spying operation.

    I would not worry too much about this piece. The state of Israel lies in the US hands from three viewpoints: military, financial and economical. And it recognizes its true master.

  • Ir Travis

    “We have nothing against Israel, but – as American citizens – we want our intelligence agencies to put the American people and American security first.”

    I have plenty against Israel. First: The murder of 34 American servicemen aboard the USS Liberty. Second: The murder of Rachel Corrie. Third: $8.5m a day in welfare to Israel that comes directly from American taxpayers.

    Don’t throw in apologies for speaking the truth about Israel, when you do it denotes a weakness and attempted pacification of the Israeli propaganda machine.

  • Steven Lewis

    I’ve know this for at least a few years.. During the 2012 Republican primaries you’d have sworn the candidates except Ron Paul, were running for President of Israel! Heck, we give Israel billions and we get paid back with incidents like the USS Liberty and 911! And the one report, a four part series on Fox, which had been pulled, exposes the Israeli’s/Jewish agenda for all to see. It is still available online.
