I take my hat off to The Guardian, they are arguably the only mainstream media source with any integrity-
But the "customer" the agency frets about most is the NSA. In numerous papers, GCHQ reveals its need to keep the Americans happy, and how it regards
this as an overriding priority.
It is not hard to see why: the Guardian has discovered GCHQ receives tens of millions of pounds from the NSA every year, money it has come to rely
upon to build and maintain its collecting and decoding capabilities. In turn, the US expects a service, and, potentially, access to a range of
programmes, such as Tempora.
So, according to the leaks, GCHQ is working for the NSA, receceving millions of dollars every year to share the intelligence they gather.
In the decades since then, the NSA has become the world's biggest intelligence-gathering organisation, a position that has left its allies
uncomfortably reliant on its financial and technical resources.
The Snowden files reveal just how much the UK is in hoc to the US.
There are details of payments made to GCHQ by the NSA, and vignettes which point to the UK's need to do America's bidding or risk losing favour with
the senior partner.
I guess it is no surpise that American tax dollars are helping funding GCHQ, but if anything, this news piece confirms for me that Snowden is still
working for 'them'. The article highlights the difficulties of handling all this data, they don't have the manpower to do much with it in a bigger
Snowden's leaks are part of the agenda to create a Panopticon society, a society were everyone adjusts and moderates their behaviour with the belief
that they 'could be being watched a anytime'. It is control through fear. The fear that everything you do is being watched by 'Big Brother'.
