Recently, President Barack Obama named Chuck Hagel, a left-leaning Republican, as co-chair of his Intelligence Advisory Board.
Although a leader in the GOP, Hagel developed a close relationship with
Obama during his presidential campaign. Reportedly both men are
Internationalists with some observers claiming they are more concerned
with foreign nations than their own country and its people.
[mensnewdaily.com] Former US Senator Hagel is a member of various Globalist organizations, such as the Council on Foreign Relations (CFP),
according to Washington sources. The CFR has worked to create and
preserve a system of worldwide economic, political, and military
dependencies/protectorates. This system initially was used to “contain”
the Eurasian and Latin American left, but has evolved into a welfare
system for United States-based multinational corporations.
Hagel is quoted as saying, “The UN is more relevant today than it
has ever been” and “U.S. interests are not mutually exclusive from the
interests of its friends and allies.”
In addition, “the United States and the European Union can
benefit by teaming up to address the global issues of the coming era”
and the “United States can continue to set an example, not arrogantly,
but cooperatively, through strong leadership and partnership,” the
former senator said.
Meanwhile officials unveiled a United Kingdom government security
plan examined by reporters from the London-based Daily Telegraph,
several countries — U.S., U.K., France, Germany, etc. — would submit
classified information into a central intelligence unit so that any
member nation will have access to it.
But the proposals risk hard won intelligence gathered by U.S. agents
being leaked by less scrupulous security services, particularly in the
former Communist states of Eastern Europe, according to security
experts Bruno Waterfield and Duncan Gardham.
Although the Government has contributed to the proposals being drawn
up as part of unifying European countries and their resources,
Britain’s security services — MI5,
its internal agency, and MI6, its foreign intelligence agency — will
likely put up stiff opposition to these plans, claim Waterfield and
“This is serious business even for the United States,” said former
US Marine intelligence officer and NYPD detective Sid Frances.
“The United States shares top secret intelligence with the British intelligence and
law enforcement agencies. That means that very soon, U.S. secrets will
be distributed to nations that should not have access to our military
and law enforcement secrets,” claims the decorated Marine and cop.
“What worries me is that the people who these Internationalists will spy on, just may be you and me,” he added.
Historically British intelligence officers have enjoyed a good
relationship with their U.S. counterparts, regularly exchanging
information particularly in the fight against terrorism.
However, there has been a degree of mistrust between the British
authorities and European security agencies. In the 1990s the French
intelligence service was blamed for leaking information shared by MI6
to the Serbian military,
“We have well-worked principles about how we share information using
bilateral relationships built up over many years,” said Waterfield and
“We share information whenever we need to do so and while the idea
of dumping everything in a big pool may have a superficial attraction,
we would want to know that everyone was contributing equally and the
information shared was properly protected.”
The intelligence-sharing plan from the European Union Future Group is
expected to form the basis of legislation next year and calls on
countries to abandon the “principle of confidentiality” which has
governed the sharing of intelligence for decades.
The proposals stop short of calling for a European spy agency but
say there is a need for “increased synergies between police and
security intelligence services.”
It suggests a network of “antiterrorist centers” in each country
coordinated by SitCen, the European Union’s intelligence assessment
center in Brussels.
“While the U.S. won’t directly be involved in consolidating
intelligence, any secrets we share with Britain, France, Germany or
other countries will be open to espionage by enemy nations or terrorist
groups,” warns Det. Frances.
“Once we submit classified information to foreign entities, we no
longer have control over what groups have access to our secrets,” he
Other proposals suggest standardizing police surveillance techniques
and extending the sharing of DNA and fingerprint databases to include
CCTV video footage and material gathered by “spy drones.”
The plans are based on the idea that the EU can do better than
national governments with the report adding: “It appears that this
sector cannot be managed politically by individual member states.”
It is also suggests that the European Gendarmerie Force (EGF), which currently only involves France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands, should become an EU body.
The latest proposal will step up pressure on the UK to allow the
deployment of armed foreign police officers intp Britain during a
“crisis” situations, including public order disturbances at
Other proposals include the formation of a paramilitary police force
which can be deployed by a Brussels “mission command” in international
hotspots outside the EU’s borders.
The confidential 53-page document, called European Home Affairs in an Open World,
sets out plans for an EU program of security measures from 2010 to
2014.It has been drafted by a top-level group consisting of justice
ministers from Germany, Portugal, Slovenia, France, the Czech Republic
and Sweden as well as the European Commission.
The plans have alarmed conservatives and civil libertarians as both an erosion of national sovereignty and a threat to freedom.
Dominic Grieve, the Shadow Home Secretary, told the British press,
“This report reveals the enormous scope of Brussels’ ambitions for EU
control over vital areas of national security policy. While practical
cooperation between EU partners is important — the Government must
resolutely resist any attempt to fetter British control over this
important policy area.”
Government sources said they were still considering the proposals
but were keen to see greater cooperation in gathering intelligence at
European borders. A Home Office spokesman said: “The UK has followed
the workings of the Future Group and has [cooperated when] possible.The
report contains some useful ideas regarding how EU countries can
cooperate on global issues such as combating terrorism.”
