Intelligence agreements have extended to other states beyond the Five Eyes: at the time, Privacy International and MFIA filed a complaint, the last public version of the Five Eyes Alliance Agreement , known as the UKUSA Agreement, dates from 1955. This version of the agreement provides that the Five Eyes will by default share all the sigINT they collect, as well as methods and techniques related to SIGINT operations. An appendix to this agreement states that the Five Eyes must transmit “continuous, up-to-date and without requirement” to both “gross intelligence” (i.e. not analyzed) and “final product” (intelligence that has been analyzed or interpreted). “Historical Note on the UKUSA COMINT Agreement,” which provides an overview of the formation of the agreement. He begins by clarifying that “[d] he occasionally raises the question of at what levels of government the UKUSA COMINT agreement has been approved or approved,” but he quickly clarifies that “the President of the United States has approved an agreement in this area and that the British Foreign Secretary must be aware.” (Compare this, for example, to the statement of David Lange, the former Prime Minister of New Zealand, who noted that “it was only when I read [nicky Hager`s secret power,” which describes the history of the New Zealand government`s Communications Security Bureau, that I had an idea that we were engaged in an integrated international electronic network.” He went on to say that “it is an indignation that I and other ministers have been told so little, and it raises the question of who ultimately was responsible for those involved.” Secret agreements allow the secret services of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States to spy on the world. By the late 1950s, Canada, Australia and New Zealand had also joined the Alliance. These five English-speaking countries form the five-eyed alliance as we know it today. The agreement on the exchange of information between these five countries has only strengthened over time, as it covers the monitoring of online activities. On September 11, 2013, The Guardian published a leaked edward Snowden document revealing a similar agreement between the NSA and Israel`s 8200 unit. [36] After Murphy`s 1973 attacks on the headquarters of the Australian Security Intelligence Organization (ASIO), Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam learned of the UKUSA agreement.

After learning of the agreement, Whitlam discovered that Pine Gap, a secret surveillance station near Alice Springs, Australia, had been operated by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

This document not only confirms the clarification of the nature of the original UKUSA agreement and how the NSA and GCHQ have adapted it over time, but it also confirms our understanding of the broad scope of the UKUSA agreement. In the “Background” section, she notes that “the basic agreement … for the exchange of all COMINT results, including the final product and relevant accompanying data … for global objectives, unless it was expressly excluded from the agreement at the request of one of the parties” as was the case. In its high-level Findings/Conclusions, it also states that “[t]he large flow of raw interception, technical analysis results and SIGINT product between the NSA and GCHQ is significant. Another language was published in the “Results/conclusions” section. And in its latest section “Areas of Cooperation/Exchange,” it states that “the exchange of GCHQ-NSA sigint includes a variety of targets around the world, from military activities to terrorist activities [REDACTED] and [REDACTED]” and “the exchange of material (gross absorption, analysis, product) on [REDACTED].” The document shows how the two agencies facilitate these exchanges in practice, including ensuring that “GCHQ has direct access to the NSA`s computer systems.” The “Fund” section also states that “effort divisions (DOE) and/or
