There's yet more confirmation of the model that the NSA spying network is as much about finances and market manipulation as it is anything else, and interestingly enough, it's coming from RT:
In other words, the old adage "Follow the money" has been perhaps the unofficial motto of the NSA since it's founding in 1947 by the National Security Act. And that means that its use of electronic signals intelligence in the war on terror is simply a kind of "subset" or "operational adjustment" to its normal modus vivendi.
So far, so good.
But there's some subtext in this article, and it's very significant:
US electronic surveillance in Mexico reportedly targeted top officials, including both current and previous presidents. Intelligence produced by the NSA helped Americans get an upper hand in diplomatic talks and find good investment opportunities.
The US National Security Agency was apparently very happy with its successes in America’s southern neighbor, according to classified documents leaked by Edward Snowden and analyzed by the German magazine, Der Spiegel. It reports on new details of the spying on the Mexican government, which dates back at least several years.
The fact that Mexican President Peña Nieto is of interest to the NSA was revealed earlier by Brazilian TV Globo, which also had access to the documents provided by Snowden. Spiegel says his predecessor Felipe Calderon was a target too, and the Americans hacked into his public email back in May 2010. (Emphasis added)
Now look what we have:
- Once again, the extent of the spying was revealed by Edward Snowden, which raises again the possibility that he was acting as an agent for a foreign power;
- The data he provided was exposed by Brazilian tv, tying the Mexican revelations to the more or less vague but discernible common geopolitical and financial interests of the BRICSA nations;
- The data he provided was further analyzed by the popular German magazine Der Spiegel, ratcheting up the exposure of the financial aspects and realities of the NSA eletcronic spying and its real purpose; and
- all of the above is recapped and further exposed by RT, which has a significant English speaking audience.
The main theme connecting the above four points of the subtext is that all four involved nations - Mexico, Brazil, Germany, and Russia - are pointing to the unfair market manipulation capabilities that the electronic spying program permits, and thus, one can view this whole episode as yet another little indicator that, in Germany's case at least, the diplomatic tap dance between East and West has been accelerated just a little bit more...
And it's also an indicator that the BRICSA group is now focused on the electronic aspects of the US dollar reserve currency status. Watch that meme of international financial clearing and BRICSA nations very closely... because it's a sure bet that more messages are coming.
See you on the flip side.
