Telegraph  (Ambrose Evans Pritchard) – Europe is blowing itself apart over Greece – and nobody seems able to stop it

Greek premier Alexis Tsipras never expected to win Sunday’s referendum on EMU bail-out terms, let alone to preside over a blazing national revolt against foreign control. He called the snap vote with the expectation – and intention – of losing it.

The plan was to put up a good fight, accept honourable defeat, and hand over the keys of the Maximos Mansion, leaving it to others to implement the June 25 “ultimatum” and suffer the opprobrium…

Wayne Madsen ReportJuly 2-5, 2015 — Is NSA amassing 4th Party allies through coercion and deceit?

Excerpts:

The latest release of a new tranche of classified National Security Agency documents secreted out of the signals intelligence agency by whistleblower Edward Snowden yields an operation that appears to be not only troubling from an ethics standpoint but also highly illegal.

A PowerPoint presentation on Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Fusion, classified Top Secret, COMINT (Communications Intelligence), FVEY (Five Eyes) only, and prepared by Lockheed Martin Information Systems & Global Solutions for the NSA base Menwith Hill Station in England contains a significant bullet point on a slide on Research Objectives. Lockheed Martin has long been a primary contractor at the Menwith Hill base, located in the moors of Yorkshire near Harrogate and known for the white radomes that look like giant golf balls that dot the facility’s grounds.

The bullet point in question states that a priority for NSA and its Second Party Five Eyes allies in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand is to “identify victims for 4th Party Collection Opportunities.” “Victims” are nations that the NSA and its partners believe have been the targets of cyber-attacks from hostile nations or groups…

Third Parties to the FIVE EYES alliance are either traditional U.S. allies, including Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Israel, Turkey, Spain, and Norway, or neutral nations like Sweden that have close military and intelligence ties to the U.S. and NATO. A previously-released NSA slide on an “unconventional special access program” known as RAMPART-A describes NSA “leveraging Third Party partnerships” to ensure that third party nations “provide access” to NSA for “cables and host U.S. equipment.” Host equipment is special eavesdropping systems that can tap into fiber optics cables and satellite links and process and analyze communications streams. Classified NSA slides describe 30 Third Parties as part of the “Worldwide SIGINT/Defense Cryptologic Platform.”

Other classified NSA documents describe “Fourth Parties” as countries, organizations, or even covert network implanted devices. As far as Fourth Party governments are concerned, they are defined as temporary partners to which “exceptional cooperation” has been extended by FIVE EYES. However, Fourth Parties can be both temporary allies of NSA or targets themselves as some Fourth Parties are also defined as “hostile to its interests” of the United States…

The NSA slide that describes NSA identifying victims of malicious cyber-attacks to be leveraged into collecting signals intelligence for the United States does not provide any assurances that the NSA does not inflate or simply manufacture evidence that Fourth Party candidate nations are actually being attacked by hostile forces. Another NSA slide indicates that NSA uses Fourth Party nation hackers to collect data from targeted systems. These Counter Computer Network Exploitation operations involve active and passive data acquisition from Fourth Parties by the NSA, Fourth Party “victims” sharing or stealing data for the NSA, and re-purposing data collected by Fourth Parties.

The NSA-controlled U.S. Cyber Command includes elements that do nothing but maliciously attack foreign computers and networks and the mask the true point of origin of the hacking attacks by routing them through Russian and Chinese servers. The use of the phrase “leveraging victims” of computer network exploitation (CNE) activities suggest that NSA and the CIA are involved in “dirty tricks” operations to amass as many witting or unwitting 4th Parties as necessary. There is not even any guarantee that Fourth Parties are all nation states, but that they may include friendly hacker groups, political organizations, other non-governmental players, and even covertly-implanted devices. One NSA slide on Fourth Party operations illustrates an NSA “listening post” being embedded as part of the VOYEUR program within the servers of the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) and those used by Hezbollah. One NSA operation is to piggyback on Iranian hackers working for the MOIS and “steal, through a “redirector” program the data that the Iranians are able to download from the “victims.” Other such “piggybacking” by NSA may be using unwitting Chinese and Russian hackers to conduct computer break-ins with NSA harvesting the data “take.”…
