Is Stephen Harper Working for the Americans?
It's a chilling story, a dark tale of spooks and Cons, with a little bit of Big Brother, and more than a hint of treason.
And I hesitate to write about it eh? Lest my phone start clicking and hissing like Stephen Harper himself.
But all patriotic Canadians should now ask themselves this question: is Great Spooky Leader working for us or the Americans?
A top secret document retrieved by American whistleblower Edward Snowden reveals Canada has set up covert spying posts around the world and conducted espionage against trading partners at the request of the U.S. National Security Agency.
The leaked NSA document being reported exclusively by CBC News reveals Canada is involved with the huge American intelligence agency in clandestine surveillance activities in “approximately 20 high-priority countries."
Because this isn't just a working relationship, it's a passionate affair, a reckless embrace.
The briefing notes make it clear that Canada plays a very robust role in intelligence-gathering around the world in a way that has won respect from its American equivalents.
Wesley Wark, a Canadian security and intelligence expert at the University of Ottawa, says the document makes it clear Canada can take advantage of its relatively benign image internationally to covertly amass a vast amount of information abroad.
A clandestine copulation that threatens to wreck our relationships with countries all over the world.
Wark reviewed the leaked document at the invitation of CBC News, and says he isn't surprised CSEC would be asked by the NSA to set up covert foreign spying operations. But he also points out it all comes with significant risks to Canada — namely, getting caught "can create huge diplomatic fallout."
Aside from compromising the actual intelligence operation, Wark says, an exposed spy mission can imperil Canada's other diplomatic operations — "the political contacts, the trade contacts, the generation of goodwill between the countries and any sense of co-operation."
It can only make us look even more like a rogue nation, or hapless stooges of the Americans.
And an operation this size could only have got the good to go from Stephen Harper himself...
As a result of those risks, Wark says, approval for CSEC to establish a covert spying post at the request of the NSA would have to come from the ministerial level of the Canadian government — or even from the prime minister himself. "It's far too politically and diplomatically sensitive, and the consequences of being discovered are far too great, for it to be simply an operational matter for an intelligence agency," he says.
The man who would know everything, in his quest for TOTAL CONTROL.
The deranged right-wing extremist who would turn us into a police state...
Which of course leads to the obvious question: if CSEC does the dirty work for the NSA? Does the NSA do the dirty work for CSEC? Spy on Canadians so as to get around the law that forbids CSEC to do that?
Could Harper be using foreign spooks to spy on his enemies?
Yup. I think we just found ourselves a new scandal eh?
Will Stephen Harper please explain why ANYBODY should trust him after this?
Will he explain why we should still consider this country an independent nation?
And when will Great Patriotic Leader finally reveal his true colours?
