This is a slide from JTRIG – the Joint Intelligence Threat Research Group that answers to the GCHQ the British version of our GCSB and together with us make up the ‘5 eyes’ mass surveillance program.
The slide details the dirty tricks the GCHQ conduct including ‘honey traps’ , ‘false flag operations’, ‘fake victim posts’ & ‘nasty viruses’. It has just been released by Snowden.
Key says he’s not worried about the huge NZ dump of the Snowden files that are about to be released before Dotcom’s case.
I’d suggest John Key is lying.
At least we now know why Obama wanted a private 5 hour golf game with Key.
Everyone still happy this Government allowed the GCSB to spy on us if this is what the GCHQ are secretly doing? Our collusion with mass surveillance abuses and the level of spying for ‘national security’ reasons will be far more shocking than Key is scrambling to down play.
David Lange must be rolling in his grave to see how we have been belittled down to America’s South Pacific Caddy.
Remember when we all of a sudden had a spate of high level US security officials quietly visiting NZ?
This was March 2011…

US Defense Secretary’s visit ‘shows great progress’ – Coleman
New Zealand is hosting the United States Secretary of Defense today in a symbolic visit that could signal a move towards restoring defence ties between the two countries.

Mystery spook’s identity confirmed
The identity of a United States spy who mysteriously landed in Wellington last year can be revealed as National Security Agency director General Keith Alexander.
…I wonder if what Snowden has is the briefing notes those high ranking officials gave Key? These intelligence officials are the Witch Kings of the Nazgul, they don’t go visit the Shire, the Shire goes and visits them. Being a member of the 5 Eyes means we are colluding in crimes against other states while expanding a vast mass surveillance net around all NZers.
It is time we pulled out of the 5 Eyes and became an independent nation again, whatever we gain from being a member is nothing compared to the control we are losing. The GCSB and SIS have both had increases in budget by 250% and 174% within a decade and Key has reorganised the following intelligence apparatus to answer to a small clique of security goons he controls; the Organised Crime Intelligence Unit, Financial Intelligence Unit, Strategic Intelligence Unit, National Bureau of Criminal Intelligence, Identity Intelligence Unit, Threat Assessment Unit, Police Terrorism Investigation and Intelligence Group and the Special Investigation Group.
That’s a lot of spies, who are they spying on?
Does this vast security network answer to Wellington or Washington? Let’s answer that question by poking America hard in its 5th eye and take back our sovereignty by showing the yanks the door. We have more to gain through trade with the world by stepping away from America than allowing us to become a proxy 52nd state (51 being Israel).
We stopped US nuclear ships from visiting our waters as an act of defiance that built our sense of nationhood, we should once again ban America from dominating our cyberspace.
