UK gave NSA access to its citizens' data

  • British Intelligence officials let the NSA collect phone, email and internet records of UK citizens for the use of American intelligence and military services. 

    The latest Edward Snowden document also reveals that these citizens weren't suspected of any wrongdoing. 

    Canada, Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the US are part of the "Five-Eyes" intelligence alliance and these nations are supposed to minimize the amount of data they gather on each other's citizens.

    However, Britain canceled that requirement and reports suggest that the NSA had a way of secretly spying on any of these nations without their permission.
