New NSA Details: U.S. Shares NSA Raw Intel With Israel; Yahoo and Facebook CEOs Threatened With Jail

In yet another bombshell revelation from the exiled whistleblower Edward Snowden, information has been recently released that the NSA shares raw intelligence data with Israel.

A top-secret document revealed just this week, “shows how intelligence being shared with Israel would not be filtered in advance by NSA analysts to remove US communications.”

The Los Angeles Times reports that, “The National Security Agency routinely shares raw intelligence data with Israel that probably includes sensitive information about Americans.”

“The agreement allows for the possibility that intercepts given to Israel might include the communications of U.S. government officials, in which case Israel is supposed to destroy them immediately. Other data on U.S. citizens who aren’t in the government, however, can be kept by Israel for up to a year, according to the document.”

Meanwhile, “Yahoo and Facebook, along with other tech firms, are pushing for the right to be allowed to publish the number of requests they receive from the spy agency” according to the Guardian. “Companies are forbidden by law to disclose how much data they provide.” Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer says “We faced jail” this information was disclosed.

This has prompted Mark Zuckerberg, to join Mayer in publicly stating that the US did “bad job” of “balancing people’s privacy,” stating “Frankly I think the government blew it.”

No kidding. Worst of all, the vast majority of U.S. corporate media outlets have been “blowing it” when it comes to reporting on this.
