New shocking evidence has emerged from Edward Snowden’s trove of documents about a program called ICREACH under which data collected by the GCSB is shared with 23 US spy agencies.
Under new sharing agreements which appear to have commenced immediately after John Key’s government came to power in 2008, data collected by the GCSB is shared with internal US spy agencies including the CIA, FBI, and US military intelligence.
In fact the GCSB and Key were so keen to please their US masters that in 2008 they agreed to the sharing of data with the CIA and FBI before any of the other Five Eyes (Second Party) partners did so.
