White House Plays Down Data Program
|New York Times
WASHINGTON - The Obama administration tried Saturday to marshal new evidence in defense of its collection of private Internet and telephone data, arguing that a secret program called Prism is simply an “internal government computer system” designed to ...
The National Security Agency has obtained direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants, according to a top secret document obtained by the Guardian.
Below you will find links to my internet indymedia posts over the years warning the W Bush had pressured the EU and allowed the CIA and Treasury Department ex Treasury Secrtetary John Snow to spy on international financial transactions through SWIFT that records such data in BelgiumJohn Snow who had been iunvolved with the stock market before becomiong W Bush's Treasury Secretary immediately resdigned from that position and joined the Israeli and CIA connected Cerberus hedge fund of Stephen Feinman along with ex VP Dan Quayle among others.Among other assets they bought at the time was major stock and money laundering Austrian bank BAWAG as well as with rthier Israeli right wing connections they were allowed 10% of Leumi Bank of Israel.
SWIFT – The global provider of secure financial messaging services
Although the Barack Obama aka Barry Soetoro regime recently bragged of using SWIFT of Belgium to block or disrupt the economy of Iran and as early as 2000 the IRS had plans to use SWIFT to monitor tax
and enforce regulations regarding U.S. banks and brokers dealers servicing investors in U.S.securities' this was all pushed aside after 9/11 just as the FBI stopped all financial crime investigations to supposedly go after 'terrorism'.And as I pointed out and you can verfy,the CIA along with the corrupt ex Treasury Secretary John Snow spyed on SWIFT under the phony guise of fighting terrorism even though both the CIA and John Snow and his Cerberus 'business' partners benefitted financially from spying on SWIFT and they probably still do under Barack Obama.
So I am in favor of using SWIFT for the benefit of both the U.S.and EU and other countries that may hve a need to know about international transactions that may effect the econmy of a given nation,however it is a known fact that the CIA and its employees are involved in stocks and securities often in blatent stock frauds that the U.S.SEC continues to protecvt just as they do Israelis and other foreigners who have some U.S.government or CIA protection to steal and defraud Americans using our own stock markets !It is a fact that the CIA, who weren't supposed to operate inside the U.S.for good reasons before 9/11 when the Israeli-Michael Chertoff 'Patriot Act' was forced upon the American public,have been in the stock fraud bussiness for years and this illicit activity that the SEC turns a blind eye to is another source of income to CIA agents.The FBI has been involved in this government protected criminal activity as well.This is how trillions of dollars that belonged to the middle class has ended up in offshore accounts of the elites of the 'financial military industrial complex' since the beginning of the US.government's 'war of terrorism' post 9/11!
In effect offshore whether in Switzerland or the Cayman Islands or Dubai or Israel or elsewhere I believe the U.S.government should be looking there BEFORE invading Americans rights and liberties further and we should all as Americans be complaining about the fact the while the IRS and NSA and CIA and FBI et.al. harrass we 'the little Ameirican people' at home we know you are allowing the war profiteers from your dirty MidEast wars etc. and the drug and arms and petroleum trafficker who are pat and arcel of the war profiteeers to launder their stolen assetts in offshore accounts !

Involvement with central banksThe personal data of thousands of Irish citizens that have sent or received money transfers to and from the US has been covertly logged by US anti-terrorist agencies.The Government did not know about the monitoring scheme, but several EU central banks were informed about the programme, which was introduced after the terrorist attacks on September 11th 2001. Under the scheme the CIA can sift through millions of international banking transactions to try to identify potential terrorist financing.
Bank of Canada governor David Dodge knew in 2002 that the U.S. government wanted data from an international banking organization for use in its war on terror. Dodge declined yesterday to comment on the U.S. program, in which information on international financial transactions including Canadian data was given to the Americans.
On June 22-23, 2006, the New York Times ran a story uncovering an international financial surveillance programme run by the Bush Administration. In essence the Bush Administration is getting access to international transfer data and storing this in databases at the Treasury Department and/or CIA for access to investigate terrorist activity.
The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) is a Belgian-based industry-owned co-operative that supplies a messaging infrastructure to the global banking community. This 'community' consists of banks, brokers and dealers, investment managers and their market infrastructures in payments, securities, treasury and trade. SWIFT provides messaging services and interface software to more than 7,863 financial institutions in 204 countries and territories. EU Commission Vice president expressed concern over CIA surveillance of SWIFT data.
The United States Treasury and CIA agents have confirmed it has been monitoring international financial transactions, including those in and out of Switzerland, for almost five years.
Does the CIA spy on Americans? Does it keep a file on you?, a CIA public affairs bulletin asks.
- "By law, the CIA is specifically prohibited from collecting foreign intelligence concerning the domestic activities of US citizens. Its mission is to collect information related to foreign intelligence and foreign counterintelligence. By direction of the President in Executive Order 12333 of 1981 and in accordance with procedures approved by the Attorney General, the CIA is restricted in the collection of intelligence information directed against US citizens. Collection is allowed only for an authorized intelligence purpose; for example, if there is a reason to believe that an individual is involved in espionage or international terrorist activities. The CIA's procedures require senior approval for any such collection that is allowed, and, depending on the collection technique employed, the sanction of the Director of National Intelligence and Attorney General may be required. These restrictions on the CIA have been in effect since the 1970s."
