NSA's Second tier Spying Partners Revealed

Danish TV journalist Glenn Greenwald reveals, Denmark, Belgium, the Netherlands and several other EU countries were named among Third Party Partners in the NSA-led global signal intelligence program.

The third party partners to the Five Eyes nations has now grown to include nine states - Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain.
According to Glenn, the Swedish TV program "Mission: Investigate" has been probing in global spying operations, nine European countries were added to the list of NSA.

The NSA reported that foreign Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) is “specifically limited to gathering information about international terrorists and foreign powers, organizations, or persons.” 

It adds “SIGINT provides a vital window for our [USA] nation into foreign adversaries' capabilities, actions, and intentions.” 

The NSA leaks suggested that a number of countries were involved. France, Germany, Norway, Italy, Belgium and allegedly Spain were perceived to be the NSA’s 3rd party partners. 

Sweden, Denmark and especially the Netherlands were not listed as such, but SVT’s earlier episodes revealed the Swedish signals intelligence agency (FRA) spied on Russian leaders and businesses and shared the data collected with the US.

According to RT the third party "partners" need to worry about being “victims of NSA surveillance,” because of negative “trust” relationships they will have with the US based on economic interests, whistleblower Jesselyn Radack.

The NSA has not only violated the trust of its own citizens by conducting mass dragnet surveillance on innocent people but doing it to the innocent populations of the allied nations.

NSA’s global reach is “completely unnecessary”, because it destroys diplomacy and undermines economic relations with other countries. Radack argues the NSA is just gathering intelligence on people that are suspected of doing absolutely nothing.
