US/UK intelligence agencies threaten Germany

According to journalist Glenn Greenwald, German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel has stated that the US and UK spy agencies threatened to cut Germany out of the intelligence-sharing loop if it gave safe haven to NSA whistlebower, Edward Snowden.

Here is my view of the situation on RT today:

Turkey and the German spy scandal – RT

Information has emerged recently that the German spy agency, the BND, has been caught out bugging Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, and now the Turkish government.

Today I did an interview on RT on the subject.  Intriguingly, it appears this information was part of the cache of documents an alleged mole in the BND sold to his US spymasters.

So what is really going on here?

The German BND does the bidding of USA spies

An interview on the German mainstream TV channel ARD.  The programme is called FAKT Magazin:

German complicity in NSA PRISM surveillance programme

My latest interview on RT about the German intelligence agencies’ complicity in the PRISM surveillance programme:

Revealed: Germany partner of NSA, Merkel denies knowledge from Annie Machon on Vimeo.

Edward Snowden’s disclosures first revealed that the NSA had been spying on EU institutions; cue German anger.

Then it was revealed that Germany is seen as a Class 3 partner in surveillance by the USA. This means that they are not deemed by the NSA to be intelligence partners but rather targets – in the same way as China, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia. This means that on average half a billion German communications are hoovered up by the NSA every month. And this despite a strong constitution devised to prevent such excesses, as the memories of the Gestapo and the Stasi still resonate; cue German anger.

And now it appears that, despite their (unknown?) Class 3 status, the German intelligence services, the foreign BND and the domestic BfV, have themselves been main-lining off the NSA’s illegal PRISM programme; cue German…. political embarrassment.
With friends like the USA, who needs enemies?
