British spy agency has access to global communications, shares info with NSA

The British spy agency GCHQ has access to the global network of communications, storing calls, Facebook posts and internet histories – and shares this data with the NSA, Edward Snowden has revealed to the Guardian in a new leak.

GCHQ’s network of cables is able to process massive quantities of information from both specific targets and completely innocent people, including recording phone calls and reading email messages, it was revealed on Friday.

"It's not just a US problem. The UK has a huge dog in this fight," Snowden told the Guardian. "They [GCHQ] are worse than the US."

This does not surprise me one bit. The UK has a very large intelligence base and has more cameras than any where else in the world.
Cameroon said last week that all the spying was legal and above board. If that is the case why is the EU saying it is a human rights violation.
Why spy on your own citizens and people in other countries that are considered your allies. Snowden is going to be charged with espinoge for releasing information on these abuses.
