    Who knows, but what he says is right in general terms. The CIA and Wall Street are kinda like blood brothers.

    From CNBC:

    Brussels has threatened to suspend two data sharing agreements with the US, in an escalation of transatlantic tensions over claims that America's intelligence agencies have been spying on European citizens and embassies...

    In a letter to U.S. senior officials, Cecilia Malmström, the EU's home affairs commissioner, said unless the U.S. could demonstrate that it was respecting bloc data security laws it would be forced to halt a deal that gives U.S. authorities access to Europeans' financial transaction data and airline passenger information.


    Brussels Threatens to Suspend Data Sharing with US in Spying Row

    Hopefully, adequate safeguards and constraints--both of which are likely necessary--will be adopted when it comes to the NSA's programs vis-a-vis U.S. allies. If not, actions have consequences and it now appears that a possible loss of data sharing that is important for detecting illicit travel and money laundering/tax evasion could be on the table.

    Which part is the nonsense? The "charter" that you seek? Or the fact that Wall Street and CIA are very much like blood brothers?

    It's a well-known fact that the politicians of the American government is in bed with the super-rich. Guess who controls all the other parts of government including the CIA?

    As for the OP, this is a blatant violation of individual liberties, possibly international law, and is also just plain rude.

    I worked there almost 34 years. I know they are not.

    Bud, it ain't "America" doing this, it is our GOVERNMENT. They've grown beyond our control, and it is past time we took back the keys.
    I think that's what people have to remember its not the American people in fact they are also victims in this.

    That explains it Jack!

    Somebody that worked for the CIA for 34 years, and who is not a famous whistleblower sitting in a federal prison somewhere, would definitely never have an axe to grind, and would always tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

    No, I've read enough about it on my own Jack. Buzzy K and his brother are but 2 examples of CIA types who went through the revolving door to Wall Street. It's old news indeed.

    I know BK. You have it all wrong.
