Leggendo questo nuovo articolo del Guardian confesso che mi è sorto un piccolissimo interrogativo. Un dubbio, direi. Non è che, per caso, i leader francesi e tedeschi si sono tanto lamentati anche (non soltanto, ovviamente) per coprire qualche marachella delle proprie intelligence nazionali?
Comunque, riprendendo le conclusioni dell’articolo in questione… :
It is clear from the Snowden documents that GCHQ has become Europe’s intelligence hub in the internet age, and not just because of its success in creating a legally permissive environment for its operations. Britain’s location as the European gateway for many transatlantic cables, and its privileged relationship with the NSA has made GCHQ an essential partner for European agencies. The documents show British officials frequently lobbying the NSA on sharing of data with the Europeans and haggling over its security classification so it can be more widely disseminated. In the intelligence world, far more than it managed in diplomacy, Britain has made itself an indispensable bridge between America and Europe’s spies.
