Snowden leaks forced British spies pullout from Russia and China by Jim W. Dean

Snowden leaks forced British spies pullout from Russia and China

Western Intel has failed to protect us from the Israelis and our corrupt political ruling class

The NSA is combatting some threats, but not others. Why not?
The NSA is combatting some threats, but not others. Why not?
[ Editors Note:  We see the continuing tirades of Western Intel organizations about the untold damage that Snowden has done to their security. They expect us to believe this when these same intelligence agencies appear to be totally inept in protecting their respective countries from the huge Israeli-Jewish Lobby espionage rings which operate openly within their countries.

This includes not only political espionage on a grand scale, but as many loyal members of the intelligence community feel, deep penetrations into their own services — the most obvious evidence being the zero batting average of breaking up Israeli networks.
There is another school of thought that they are being “good soldiers” and obeying the commands of their elected civilian leadership. But what really patriotic intelligence service would take orders from a compromised government, when they have all the tools and archives to expose and bring them down in a week if they chose to?
This little conundrum is one of the biggest security challenges of our era, the virtual stand down of Western Intelligence to live up to their oaths. We have seen no visible movement to correct this horrible state of affairs.
While the public is opening its eyes to the decrepit state of our political ruling class, this concern has not flowed over into concern for their respective intelligence and military communities, who obviously know how bad things have become, and why.
At the end of the day, who will step forward to truly live up to their oaths remains to be seen, including the possibility of no one. You just can’t make this stuff up … Jim W. Dean ]

Why is Western Intelligence standing down on massive Israeli espionage?
The British MI6 secret service had to suspend operations of its field agents due to imminent exposure in “hostile” countries such as Russia and China, caused by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s leaks, the Sunday Times reports.
The Sunday Times alleges that both Moscow and Beijing have succeeded in cracking top-secret encrypted documents obtained from Snowden and learnt MI6’s methods.
The British media outlet cited unnamed officials in Prime Minister David Cameron’s office, the Home Office and national security services.
An official in PM Cameron’s cabinet said that as far as he knew there was“no evidence of anyone being harmed,” although allegedly Britain had been deprived of the opportunity to get the information it wanted.
“It is the case that the Russians and Chinese have information. It has meant agents have had to be moved and that knowledge of how we operate has stopped us getting vital information,” the Sunday Times was told.
At the same time, another senior British official said Snowden had “blood on his hands.”
Russia and China will be going through Snowden’s material “for years to come,” in order to find clues to identify potential agents, a British intelligence source told the media outlet.
“Snowden has done incalculable damage,” he said, saying evacuation of agents was a forced necessity because otherwise they would have been “identified and killed.”
Russia and China gaining access to Snowden’s material became a “huge strategic setback” that harmed Britain, America and other NATO member states, said Sir David Omand, the former director of GCHQ.
The damage caused by Snowden was “far greater than what has been admitted,” a US intelligence source told the Sunday Times.
In an email to a former US Senator written in July 2013, Snowden said one of his specializations was “to teach our people at DIA how to keep such information from being compromised even in the highest threat counter-intelligence environments (i.e. China).”
“No intelligence service—not even our own—has the capacity to compromise the secrets I continue to protect,” the fugitive whistleblower said.
The Sunday Times reports that not only British agents, but spies of other Western agencies were evacuated from the countries they operated in on security grounds.
Former US National Security Services contractor Edward Snowden, who fled to Russia via Hong Kong in June 2013, is believed to have collected some 1.7 million documents from US government computers. He has leaked them to journalists in order to secure “privacy and basic liberties” worldwide.
Edward Snowden was granted asylum in Russia in August 2013.
Scandalous revelations about indiscriminate global mass surveillance sparked mass outrage from people and governments around the world. As a result of this unprecedented intelligence leak, the NSA and British GCHQ became the most affected agencies. They had to completely rethink their information security procedures.
