A federal judge ordered the U.S. government to stop its blanket detention policy for asylum seekers,according to the Washington Post. The government will now have to release more than 1,000 individuals detained at five U.S. field offices or grant them immediate hearings. The order is part of a larger case that the American Civil Liberties Union filed on behalf of nine asylum seekers held within the United States. Federal judge James Boasberg said the government must determine on an individual basis whether an asylum seeker poses a flight risk or a threat to public safety and release any who does not. The Justice Department has not said whether it will appeal the injunction.

The White House may designate a branch of Iran’s military as a terrorist group, reports CNN. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is a powerful arm of Iran’s military, and it has been connected to Tehran’s support of terrorism on a number of occasions, CNN says. The designation would permit the Trump administration to block IRGC members from traveling and to freeze the groups assets, among other penalties. Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cautioned against the decision last October, saying it would include “particular risks and complexities” and therefore was “not appropriate,” but sources familiar with the matter say that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo supports the designation. Pompeo recently told CNN that his goal is to “convince the Islamic Republic of Iran to be a normal country.”

After weeks of contentious negotiations, German Chancellor Angela Merkel reached a deal to address migrants along the German border and salvage her coalition government, reports BBC. The negotiations centered on the question of what to do with migrants who attempt to enter Germany after they apply for asylum in other European Union countries. The details of Monday’s agreement remain vague, however; Merkel appears to have agreed to a series of transit centers along the German border that will house migrants before they are transferred back to the E.U. country where they first registered. For the agreement to work, it will require all of the nations involved to agree to the deal. Monday’s announcement is a far cry from Merkel’s ideal solution, in which European Union members would work together to share the burden of asylum seekers. Public-opinion polls suggest that a majority of Germans agree with her.

The FBI arrested a man who was planning an attack in Cleveland on July 4, according to the Post. Demetrius Pitts appeared in court on Monday on charges of attempting to provide material support of a foreign terrorist organization. Pitt discussed his plans on a number of occasions with an individual who he believed to be working for al-Qaeda, but who was actually an undercover FBI employee.  Pitt said in a recording that he was “trying to figure out something that would shake them up on the 4th of July.” European security services prevented another potential bombing at an annual, anti-Iran gathering in Paris, according to the Journal. Belgian, French, and German police arrested four individuals on June 30, and security forces are investigating whether the Iranian government may have been behind the attempted attack. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zafir tweeted on Monday “Iran unequivocally condemns all violence and terror anywhere, and is ready to work with all concerned to uncover what is a sinister false flag ploy.”

The Trump administration will no longer penalize all nations who buy oil from Iran, but will consider sanction waivers on a “case-by-case” basis, reports the Wall Street Journal. The announcement came from a senior State Department official on Monday. The new policy reverses the Trump administration’s June 26 announcement that it would sanction all countries who purchased Iranian oil beginning on Nov. 4. Several nations expressed concern that they would be unable to meet the fall deadline. The U.S. will now consider waivers for countries in Europe and Asia, but primarily for France, Germany, and the U.K. According the State Department official, the U.S. is “working to minimize disruptions to the global market.”

Anti-corruption authorities arrested Malaysia’s ex-prime minister and are expected to charge him on Wednesday, according to BBC. In 2009, Najib Razak set up the 1MDB development fund in order to boost the economy in Kuala Lumpur and attract investment. He is now accused of stealing more than $700 million from the fund. Raznak has continually denied any wrongdoing; he was previously cleared of wrongdoing while in office. Prosecutors will charge him in the Kuala Lumpur High Court.

President Trump wrote more than a dozen letters to NATO members warning them that U.S. NATO spending is “no longer sustainable,” reports the Times. The letters, which were sent in June, reiterate Trump’s frequent criticism that NATO allies do not contribute sufficient resources to the organization. The messages were personalized to each individual country, with Trump telling German Chancellor Angela Merkel that “Continued German underspending on defense undermines the security of the alliance.” One German official said the nation found the letter “really worrisome,” but it appears some allies are less concerned than others: Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel told reporters he was “not very impressed” with the message.

“The “Moral Black Hole” of the “Times Square”. “Happy New Year!”  – Is this the message? 

High Profile, “Top Stories”, Performance Crimes are the crimes of publicity; conceived, planned and committed with the aim of broadcasting the public message (“propaganda”), on the overt to the covert spectrum, and impressing it upon public imagination and emotions skillfully, as a type of the performance art. The level of sophistication and preparations in this type of crimes indicate the possible involvement of the highly skilled and experienced groups, armed with the top-notch digital technologies, and the list of the hypothetical culprits might range broadly, from the organized crime groups to the various intelligence services. M.N. – 1.19.18

“LABRAT KNATS” and The Perfect Robots

BY MICHAEL NOVAKHOV 

Last Update: 11:13 AM 1/5/2018

“And the sign said: “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls”. 

globalsecuritynews.org | fbinewsreview.org | trumpinvestigations.org | worldnewsandtimes.org 

LABRAT KNATS!

Are these the words of your prophets? Or the messages from some mysterious and powerful “Joker“, or the tools and weapons of the “hybrid wars”? Are we the “Labrat Knats” on a burning “GHOST SHIP” America? Did we become just the massive supply of lab rats, lab knats – drosophilas, the human Guinea pigs, bred as the unwitting subjects for the various experimentson and off-line, conducted by the various hostile actors? 

Who is The Joker? Is this Putin, or some known or unknown to us chief in some intelligence service? Are these the non-state actors? Who are they? 

globalsecuritynews.org | fbinewsreview.org | trumpinvestigations.org | worldnewsandtimes.org 

SEMANTIC ANALYSIS AND INTERPRETATIONS

In my humble opinion, many of the recent “accidents” appear to contain some implied symbolic meanings and the symbolic “messages”. Is this the correct assessment or just the subjective, maybe even the paranoid impression? These meanings, messages, and “clues” are too visible (at least for the cued observers), too much the parts of the accidents, and too evident and even obvious, to ignore and to dismiss them; they are so by the designs of their “authors” who intend to broadcast their messages to those who are able to read them.

globalsecuritynews.org | fbinewsreview.org | trumpinvestigations.org | worldnewsandtimes.org 

The “proof is in the pudding”: the various “telling parts” of the “narratives” in the various “accidents” are “internally consistent” in their compositions to tell the “story” with a certain meaning, comprising a “message”. The “stories” were also “externally” congruent with the social and political situations at a time. The things appear to be what they look like or claim to be, “prima facie”, according to a sort of “duck principle”, without implying their genesis or origin. However, this issue of “proof” is more complex than it sounds. 

Image result for sphinx luxor las vegas

globalsecuritynews.org | fbinewsreview.org | trumpinvestigations.org | worldnewsandtimes.org 

These “messages” may be visual, as in the graffiti signs: “LABRAT KNATS” and “GHOST SHIP”, which serve as the backdrops for the crime scenes. Or the “messages” might be in the storylines, actions, plot, drama, and the scenes of the “accidents”, as in the 2017 Las Vegas shooting, which looked like the human sacrifice in front of the Luxor Sphinx. Or in the disguised verbal-linguistic associations and allusions, usually in the names of the perpetrators, officials, or victims, and/or the places of the crime scenes, or in some other, similar clues, as in the “FARWEST Side of the LOWER” Manhattan truck attack of 10.31.17. Usually, these three components: the visuals, the dramatic actions, and the verbal allusions, are all present and mixed in various degrees. The place and the scene of Las Vegas shooting would have a quality of the mass spectacle, had it not been so real, and the similar notions of “the crimes for a show” apply to the other “accidents”. And these “shows” very often carry the symbolic meanings, a moral, a story to tell, or some other didactic content, which in one word can be called the “message”. 

Police say Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, drove a rented Home Depot truck down New York's Houston Street before turning left onto West St and driving down a cycle path, smashing into pedestrians and cyclists

globalsecuritynews.org | fbinewsreview.org | trumpinvestigations.org | worldnewsandtimes.org 

The symbolism and the symbolic message of the Manhattan attack also appear to be quite clear: “The US is like a rented truck speeding down the bicycle lane, after taking a left turn South from Houston (Oh, “how stoned!”) Street onto the West Side Highway (“My way or the highway” – the so-called, ironically,”Reagan Doctrine”), with its anti-Russia sanctions

MESSAGE CRIMES AND THEIR FEATURES

Many other previous “accident” episodes do fit this structural pattern of the “message crimes” also. The opinions about any particular interpretations might differ, but the overall meanings or the “messages” of the “accidents” should not be that difficult to grasp. These “accidents” may be viewed as the “performance crimes or acts”, conceptually within the realm of the “Performance Arts”. 

These “message crimes” are committed largely for the sake of broadcasting the message, with the purposes of intimidating, warning, “punishing”, “propaganda”, etc. These types of the public and social messaging were used quite often throughout the human history and were retained in the religious myths.

Mene, mene, tekel, upharsin: numbered, numbered, weighed, and divided”, said the “writing on the wall“, or in other words, the issue was analyzed, understood, prognosticated, and decided. In our days, the mobility and the ubiquity of the “social media walls” are combined with their traditional, although digital, monumentalism. 

Any crime is a message and a sick one, but the “crimes as performance acts” and as “the messages” proper, have their own distinct features. These are the crimes for the show and documentation in all forms and media, designed to be performed with flair and panache; as in a movie, drama, story, picture, graffiti, or like in a dream; with the aims of reaching the broadest and the most susceptible audiences. The broad and intense media coverage is the organic feature of these “messages”; direct and/or indirect media manipulations and influencing are also possible. The use of these “accidents” as the communication tools, subject to interpretations, within the large and disparate criminal groups, is also a possibility. The conceptualization of the “crimes for the sake of broadcasting the message” and elaboration of their typology might be helpful for their investigations by generating new hypotheses, leads, ideas, and understanding, and the “correct” or at least adequate interpretation of the “message of the crime” might be the key to analysis.

(1)BND-Präsident Ernst Uhrlau – Ein Mann schweigt sich in die Bredouille – Politik

mikenova shared this story from Politik – SZ.de.

Die Krise um die verschwundenen Baupläne für die neue Zentrale des Bundesnachrichtendienstes in Berlin könnte BND-Präsident Uhrlau den Job kosten. Weil er ungeschickt agiert – und weil ihm die richtigen Freunde in der Politik fehlen.

Eigentlich ist auch ein Nachrichtendienst nur ein gewöhnlicher Behördenapparat; aber wenn Interna aus diesem Dienstbetrieb bekannt werden, herrscht meist Aufregung. Wer weiß das besser als der Präsident des Bundesnachrichtendienstes (BND), der große Schweiger Ernst Uhrlau? Seit drei Jahrzehnten ist Uhrlau, 64, mit den internen Abläufen in Sicherheitsapparaten vertraut. Und doch droht ihm jetzt, auf der Zielgeraden der Karriere, noch Ungemach. Es ist nicht auszuschließen, dass er wenige Monate vor dem geplanten Wechsel in den Ruhestand unfreiwillig gehen muss.

Ernst Uhrlau ist wegen seines Krisenmanagaments im Fall der verschwundenen BND-Baupläne in der Kritik.

(Foto: ddp)Was Uhrlau zum Verhängnis werden könnte, ist eine eigentlich überschaubare Geschichte. Baupläne der neuen BND-Zentrale sind in Umlauf. Nichts wirklich Bedeutendes, aber weil Uhrlau beim Krisenmanagement ein bisschen sehr tough auftrat und möglicherweise auch voreilig, hat er jetzt Ärger. Unangenehm ist auch, dass fast zeitgleich Intimes aus dem Apparat bekannt wurde. Ein von Uhrlau geförderter Abteilungsleiter soll sich auf seinem Dienst-Computer Sex-Seiten angeschaut haben. Der Beamte wurde inzwischen intern versetzt.

Das alles kann der Chef des Auslandsnachrichtendienstes heil überstehen, wenn er sich mit der Aufsicht im Kanzleramt gut versteht. Aber Uhrlaus Verhältnis zur Regierungszentrale und auch zu wichtigen Leuten der Union ist, freundlich ausgedrückt, ein Nicht-Verhältnis. Das hängt zum einen damit zusammen, dass der gebürtige Hamburger, der früher den Verfassungsschutz der Hansestadt leitete und dort auch mal Polizeipräsident war, eingeschriebenes SPD-Mitglied ist. Er ist gewissermaßen das Überbleibsel der Regierung Gerhard Schröder.

In der Zeit von Rot-Grün koordinierte Uhrlau als Abteilungsleiter im Kanzleramt die Nachrichtendienste. Er fädelte beispielsweise humanitäre Aktionen zwischen der libanesischen Hisbollah und den Israelis ein und verkörperte geräuschlose Effizienz. Der Freund der Oper und der Literatur agierte meist ebenso diskret wie kundig.

Als die große Koalition kam, wurde Uhrlau Präsident des BND. Wenn die Behörde in die Schlagzeilen geriet, konnte er sich stets auf den damaligen Außenminister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (SPD) verlassen, aber die Sozialdemokraten sind jetzt in der Opposition. Das gibt Uhrlaus konservativen Kritikern noch mehr Gewicht, und an Freunden im Politikbetrieb mangelt es ihm ohnehin.

Mit großen Teilen der CSU hat es sich Uhrlau verscherzt, als er den Umzug des Dienstes von Pullach bei München nach Berlin durchsetzte. Nicht jeder Unionspolitiker war begeistert, dass der Diplom-Politologe Uhrlau die Geschichte des Dienstes von einer historischen Kommission aufarbeiten lässt. Da kann manches hochkommen, beispielsweise auch, wie der BND in der Gründerzeit die SPD bespitzelte. Außerdem unterzog Uhrlau den BND einer Reform, die Ärger machte. Abteilungen wurden zerschlagen und durch Arbeitseinheiten ersetzt.

Uhrlau hat bei alldem auch Fehler gemacht, die fallen nun ins Gewicht. Seit 26 Jahren hat kein BND-Präsident mehr das Pensionsalter im Dienst heil erreicht. Möglich, dass sich Uhrlau in diese Tradition einreihen muss.

Dieser Gastbeitrag ist eine gekürzte Version des Vorworts des neuen Buchs Spionage unter Freunden – Partnerdienstbeziehungen und Westaufklärung der Organisation Gehlen und des BND von Christoph Franceschini, Erich Schmidt-Eenboom und Thomas Wegener Friis. Das Buch erschien im April im Verlag Christoph Links, hat 384 Seiten und kostet 30 Euro. Veröffentlichung mit freundlicher Genehmigung von Autoren und Verlag. Alle Rechte vorbehalten.

Seit Edward Snowden im Juni 2013 Zuflucht in Hongkong gesucht hat und zunächst fand, werden wir nahezu täglich mit immer neuen Enthüllungen konfrontiert, die tiefe Einblicke in das Potenzial und die Programme, in die Technik und das Ausspähungsvolumen der US-amerikanischen National Security Agency (NSA) und zum Teil auch in ähnliche Strukturen und Praktiken ihres britischen Pendants Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) geben.

Die Weltöffentlichkeit erfuhr, dass die NSA – gestützt auf einen Jahresetat von etwa 10 Milliarden US-Dollar mit einem 100.000-Mann-Heer von Datendieben – ihrem Anspruch, jede Telekommunikation auf dem Globus vollständig zu erfassen, zu durchsieben, zu analysieren und wesentliche Teile sehr langfristig zu speichern, in wachsendem Maß gerecht wird. Auch der Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) stecke mit dem Hauptangreifer auf die verfassungsrechtlich geschützte Privatsphäre der Deutschen sowie auf die ökonomischen und regierungsseitigen Betriebsgeheimnisse der Bundesrepublik nebst ihren europäischen Partnern unter einer Decke, blies der Whistleblower aus dem Moskauer Exil anschließend heraus.

Bei der medialen und parlamentarischen Aufklärung des NSA-Skandals, die durch die Enthüllungen von Snowden zunächst eine Vielzahl von Gesetzesverstößen des BND bei seiner Zusammenarbeit mit der NSA und nachrichtendienstliche Angriffe der angelsächsischen Verbündeten auf den deutschen NATO-Partner zutage gefördert hat, gab es 2015 eine Wendung, die zahlreiche Fachleute aus den Medien und erst recht das breite Publikum überraschte: Der BND geriet ins Kreuzfeuer der Kritik, weil auch er systematisch befreundete Staaten und internationale Organisationen ausgespäht hatte.

Abhören unter Freunden ist systematisch

Skandalisiert wurden die Ausforschung der Türkei, für die es zahlreiche gute Gründe gibt, oder Lauschangriffe auf das österreichische und belgische Innenministerium, das britische Verteidigungsministerium, europäische Unternehmen wie Eurocopter im französischen Marignane oder eine EADS-Dependance in Warschau, aber auch Banken wie die HSBC, Telekommunikationsunternehmen wie British Telecommunications, ein Flugzentrum der US-Raumfahrtbehörde NASA und eine Abteilung der U. S. Air Force. Im Visier des BND standen auch die Botschaften nahezu aller europäischer Staaten in Berlin sowie zahlreicher Konsulate in der Bundesrepublik.

Von den dem BND von den Amerikanern angeblich untergejubelten Selektoren wurden 40.000 im Laufe der Jahre ausgesondert. 68,7 Prozent dieser Suchbegriffe richteten sich gegen Regierungseinrichtungen von EU-Partnern, weitere gegen deutsche Unternehmen.

Von 2009 an hörte der BND die Hohe Vertreterin der Europäischen Union (EU) für Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik und gleichzeitig deren Vizepräsidentin Catherine Ashton ab. 2013 sollte das Handy von US-Außenminister John Kerry in die Zielerfassungsliste aufgenommen werden. Der Lauschangriff scheiterte nur, weil ein BND-Mitarbeiter die Ländervorwahl der USA mit der eines afrikanischen Staats verwechselt hatte. Kerrys Kommunikation konnte dennoch über die Überwachung der Anschlüsse des US-Außenministeriums zum Teil erfasst werden.

Geheimdienstlicher Rundumblick in Pullach

Der Bundesregierung schlug eine Welle der (gespielten) Empörung aus europäischen Nachbarstaaten entgegen. Als ruchbar wurde, dass der BND die Online-Kommunikation in Belgien in großem Umfang ausgespäht hatte, leitete die belgische Regierung Untersuchungen ein, und ihr Telekommunikationsminister Alexander De Croo verwies im Mai 2015 süffisant auf die Empörung der Bundeskanzlerin anlässlich der Überwachung ihres Handys durch die NSA.

Bis Ende 2013 hatten BND und NSA gemeinsam auch französische Politiker wie den Außenminister Laurent Fabius überwacht. Am Rande des europäisch-afrikanischen Gipfeltreffens auf Malta im November 2015 forderte Frankreichs Präsident François Hollande von Angela Merkel öffentlich eine vollständige Aufklärung der Affäre. Die Kanzlerin beschwichtigte damit, dass es sich um eine „indirekte Maßnahme“ gehandelt habe, bei der Personen im Visier standen, die sich an Fabius gewandt hatten.

Wer sich da 2015 die Augen rieb und helle Empörung über die BND-Spionage gegen politisch verbündete Staaten bekundete, war mit der nachrichtendienstlichen Fachliteratur nur wenig vertraut. Aus Dokumenten, die der ehemalige leitende BND-Mitarbeiter Hans Langemann (Lückrath) Anfang der 1980er-Jahre über einen Mittelsmann in die Medienlandschaft streute, ging bereits hervor, dass Pullach nicht auf die Staaten des Warschauer Vertrags allein fixiert war, sondern sich den geheimdienstlichen Rundumblick auf die Fahnen geschrieben hatte. Die Westaufklärung in dieser Operation Eva, die hier noch breiten Raum einnehmen wird, entsprang nicht den Eigenmächtigkeiten einzelner BND-Statthalter und war ebenso wenig ein der Regierung in Bonn verschwiegenes Hausprodukt Reinhard Gehlens, sondern Ausfluss der Auftragssteuerung durch das Bundeskanzleramt.

Freunde ausspähen ist gesetzlich abgesichert

Im Vorfeld der am 21. Oktober 2016 vom Bundestag verabschiedeten Novelle zum BND-Gesetz hatte sich die Hoffnung breitgemacht, dass in Zukunft nicht nur europäische, sondern alle ausländischen Bürger, Politiker und Institutionen von Ausspähungen des BND verschont bleiben würden. In einer Anhörung im Innenausschuss des Bundestages Ende September 2016 hatte Matthias Bäcker vom Karlsruher Institut für Technologie sogar die Auffassung vertreten, es sei verfassungswidrig, wenn Ausländer gegenüber Bundesbürgern schlechter gestellt und gegen Abhörmaßnahmen weniger geschützt seien.

Durchgesetzt haben sich jedoch die Hardliner, denn das neue Gesetz zur Auslands-Fernmeldeaufklärung gewährt dem BND größere Spielräume beim Ausspähen von EU-Institutionen, EU-Mitgliedsstaaten und Unionsbürgern, sofern es der Gefahrenabwehr dient oder wenn dabei „ausschließlich Daten über Vorgänge in Drittstaaten gesammelt werden sollen, die von besonderer Relevanz für die Sicherheit der Bundesrepublik Deutschland sind“. „Das Besondere an dieser Regelung ist, dass nunmehr gesetzlich abgesichert ist, was vor einiger Zeit noch bestritten wurde – dass nämlich auch der BND unter Umständen ‚Freunde ausspähen‘ muss“, analysierte eine Studie der vom Bundeskanzleramt finanzierten Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (SWP) im Oktober 2016. Wirtschaftsspionage wird dem BND explizit untersagt, aber die Grenzen zur Wirtschaftsaufklärung bleiben fließend.

Dass die seit Jahrzehnten ausgeübte Spionage unter Freunden, auch die vom BND ausgehende, durch die neue Gesetzeslage – wenigstens zum Teil und über Gummiparagrafen abgedeckt – nun nur legalisiert wurde, ist auch ein Nachweis, den dieses Buch erbringen wird.

Jahrzehntelange Spionage unter Freunden legalisiert

In der Tradition Reinhard Gehlens, der sich als Vorreiter bilateraler Zusammenarbeit mit westlichen Nachrichtendiensten gesehen hatte, machte der BND-Vizepräsident Paul Münstermann 1989 den ersten Vorschlag für einen gemeinsamen (west-)europäischen Nachrichtendienst. Kurz nachdem Ernst Uhrlau zum Geheimdienstkoordinator im Kanzleramt von Gerhard Schröder ernannt worden war, sprach er sich Ende November 1998 für eine engere Zusammenarbeit der europäischen Nachrichtendienste aus, die durch den weiteren europäischen Integrationsprozess anders verzahnt werden müsse.

Nach den Anschlägen auf das World Trade Center in New York, nach den islamistischen Attentaten in Madrid und London ist es zum Mantra führender Nachrichtendienstler und Sicherheitspolitiker geworden, dass es eine weit intensivere Kooperation der Dienste bis hin zur Schaffung eines EU-Nachrichtendienstes geben müsse. Nach den Bombenanschlägen in Brüssel 2016 forderten so der Generalbundesanwalt Peter Frank und der innenpolitische Sprecher der SPD-Bundestagsfraktion Burkhard Lischka ein europäisches Terrorabwehrzentrum, und Innenminister Thomas de Maizière verlangte die Verknüpfung von verschiedenen Datentöpfen in Europa.

Herausgekommen ist bisher nur ein wenig funktionierendes „Intelligence Sharing“ beim External Action Service der Europäischen Union. Dessen Koordinator ist seit 2015 der vormalige BND-Spitzenbeamte Gerhard Conrad. Er war zuvor Resident des BND in London und damit Kontaktmann zu den hartleibigsten Nationalisten in der intelligence community der NATO-Staaten.

Geradezu revolutionär kooperativ hatte sich hingegen der französische Dienst 2015 verhalten. Nach Aussagen des Technikchefs der Direction générale de la Sécurité extérieure (DGSE) Bernard Barbier gegenüber der französischen Tageszeitung Le Monde hegte sein Dienst auf Spitzenebene Pläne zur Fusion von BND und DGSE, um den US-Diensten Paroli bieten zu können. Ausgebremst worden – so Barbier – seien diese Überlegungen jedoch von französischen Politikern.

Politisch verbundenen Mitspielern in die Karten gucken

Nationalstaatliches Denken hatte nicht zum ersten Mal das Schritthalten nachrichtendienstlichen Handelns mit den politischen und selbst militärischen Integrationsbemühungen vereitelt. Insofern ist dieses Buch auch ein Stück Ursachenforschung für die teils schleppenden, teils fehlschlagenden Bemühungen um einen supranationalen Nachrichtendienst auf EU-Ebene.

Den tieferen Grund für den Geheimdienstauftrag, gerade politisch verbundenen Mitspielern in die Karten zu gucken, nannte Christopher J. Murphy, Dozent für Geheimdienststudien an der britischen Universität von Salford. Er betonte, dass es natürlich keine internationalen Geheimdienstallianzen, sondern nur nationale Interessen gäbe. Sein britischer Humor brachte es im Juni 2015 auf den Punkt: Die Nachrichten, dass sich NATO-Verbündete gegenseitig ausspionieren, haben denselben Neuigkeitswert wie die Information, dass der Papst katholisch ist. Aber so, wie es von großem Interesse ist, wie dieser oder jener Papst seinen Katholizismus praktiziert, so ist es auch für die Analyse der internationalen Beziehungen ausgesprochen wichtig zu erforschen, welchen Stellenwert die Spionage unter eigentlich auf Zusammenarbeit angewiesenen Freunden in bestimmten Zeitabläufen hatte.

In der Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) sehen die Leute Partnerdienstbeziehungen wie einen Schmerz im Arsch, aber als notwendig an, zitierte Elizabeth Braw im August 2014 das drastische Votum der CIA-Mitarbeiterin Valerie Plame, deren Identität aus Kreisen um US-Präsident George W. Bush illegalerweise kurz nach dem Einmarsch von US-Truppen in den Irak 2003 gelüftet worden war. Einer der Gründe für die Zusammenarbeit liegt ihrer Ansicht nach darin, gegnerische Maulwürfe im eigenen Dienst ausfindig zu machen.

Geheimdienstzusammenarbeit als Spiegelkabinett

Um zu verdeutlichen, welche Probleme dabei auftreten, zog sie eine Parallele zu Platons Höhlengleichnis: Geheimdienstzusammenarbeit sei ein klassisches Spiegelkabinett, in dem niemand sicher sein kann, dass die Dinge so sind, wie sie erscheinen. Ebenso realistisch schätzte Christopher Felix, ein Pseudonym für James McCargar, bereits 1963 das Verhältnis zwischen Nachrichtendiensten ein. „Geheimdienste mögen auf demselben Bett zusammensitzen; sie mögen selbst die Decken ein wenig zurückschlagen, aber niemals gehen sie zusammen ins Bett“, resümierte der Autor nach 16 Jahren in Diensten der CIA.

Wo Braw in der intelligence community nach ähnlichen Stimmen suchte, fand sie eine ganze Reihe. Nigel Inkster, ehemaliger Direktor für Operationen im britischen MI6, beklagte eine Erosion bei der Zusammenarbeit der NATO-Partner mit Blick auf Russland, weil Deutschland und Italien zunehmend wirtschaftlich von der Russischen Föderation abhängig würden. Martin Arpo, stellvertretender Leiter des estnischen Inlandsnachrichtendienstes KaPo, erläuterte, dass es kein blindes Vertrauen gäbe, sondern eine Need-to-know-Abschottung; Spionage richte sich auch gegen Alliierte, ohne dass dies bedeute, dass die gesammelten Informationen auch gegen den Verbündeten eingesetzt würden.

Welches Machtgefälle im amerikanisch-deutschen Verhältnis bestand, machte ein deutscher Offizieller der Newsweek-Journalistin klar: Die CIA habe den BND nie als gleichwertigen Partner betrachtet und noch in den 1990er-Jahren unverhohlen geäußert: „Ihr spielt nicht in unserer Liga.“ Wenn die CIA etwas über Mitteleuropa wissen wollte, habe sie den BND gefragt. Wenn der BND jedoch beispielsweise etwas über Indonesien habe wissen wollen, habe die Antwort gelautet: Was geht euch das an? Ein BND-Beamter, der einige Jahre in Washington eingesetzt war, erklärte, dass sich die Beziehungen sogar noch verschlechtert hätten. Unter den Regierungschefs Helmut Kohl und George H. W. Bush habe der BND einen guten Zugang zur CIA gehabt, aber das sei 2014 nicht mehr der Fall.

Eingefleischtes Misstrauen und nationale Interessen

Ungenannt bleibend und sein Herkunftsland verschweigend, formulierte der Leiter einer zentralen europäischen Sicherheitsagentur, dass es zwar bei der Bekämpfung des Terrorismus unter den NATO-Nachrichtendiensten eine engere Zusammenarbeit gäbe als im Kalten Krieg, dass aber zugleich in heutiger Zeit unterschiedliche politische Zielsetzungen Hürden aufbauen würden, die Einfluss auf die Geheimdienste hätten.

Eleganter schlug der wenig später entlassene BND-Präsident Gerhard Schindler im Frühjahr 2016 in einem Gespräch mit dem Spiegel in dieselbe Kerbe. Er forderte den Abbau von Misstrauen auch gegenüber europäischen Partnern, während ein hochrangiger pensionierter BND-Mann zuvor zu Protokoll gegeben hatte, dass das nachrichtendienstliche Geschäft „zuallererst auf Misstrauen“ beruhe. Wenig später räumte Schindler allerdings in der ARD-Fernsehdokumentation „Schattenwelt BND“ ein: „Nachrichtendienste tun sich mit der Kategorie ‚Freund‘ naturgemäß schwer“. Damit sprach der BND-Präsident öffentlich aus, was in geheimen Pullacher Papieren schon seit Jahrzehnten seinen Niederschlag gefunden hatte.

Klartext sprach zum Beispiel ein Vortrag von Eberhard Blum, des Leiters der BND-Zentralabteilung, vom Oktober 1969: Der „Gedanke der Universalität verbietet gleichzeitig Ausrichtung nachrichtendienstlicher Tätigkeit ausschließlich nach Grundsatz Feind-Freundverhältnis. Aufklärung politischer Absichten und Möglichkeiten der ‚Freunde‘ erforderlich, z. T. vorrangig, weil BRD von diesen abhängig – Verhalten eines ‚Freundes‘ kann eigene Stellung gegenüber ‚Feind‘ oft nachhaltiger tangieren als Aktion des ‚Feindes‘.“ Zu den bedeutendsten Dienstleistungen des BND für die Ressorts der Bundesregierung zählte er dabei die „Sicherheits- und Bündnispolitik, Deutschlandpolitik, Außenhandels- und Entwicklungspolitik“.

Aufklärung politischer Absichten der „Freunde“

Anlass für den Newsweek-Artikel von Braw war der Fall von Markus R., der am 2. Juli 2014 festgenommen worden war. Die Anklageschrift des Generalbundesanwalts vom 6. August 2015 warf dem in der Abteilung „Einsatzgebiete Auslandsbeziehungen“ (EA) tätigen BND-Angestellten vor, unter dem Decknamen Uwe für einen Agentenlohn von mindestens 95.000 Euro seit Januar 2008 als Doppelagent für die CIA-Station in Wien gearbeitet zu haben.

Zum Verratsumfang von mehr als 200 Dokumenten zählten eine abteilungsinterne Personal- und Organisationsdatenbank sämtlicher aktueller und zahlreicher früherer Mitarbeiter dieser Beschaffungsabteilung mit Klar- und Decknamen, des Weiteren Dokumente, die die Struktur, Arbeitsschwerpunkte und Ausrichtung der Abteilung EA und des BND insgesamt sowie konzeptionelle operative Überlegungen und Analysen betrafen, ferner Dokumente zur Zusammenarbeit mit US-amerikanischen und anderen ausländischen Diensten. Neben dem Auftragsprofil des BND übergab er seinem US-Führungsoffizier in Salzburg auch das Transkript eines Telefonats, das die US-Außenministerin Hillary Clinton aus ihrem Regierungsflugzeug mit dem UNO-Generalsekretär Kofi Annan geführt hatte.

Erschwerend kam hinzu, dass der am 1. Dezember 2007 vom BND eingestellte Bürokaufmann am 28. Mai 2014 eine vom Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz abgefangene E-Mail an das russische Generalkonsulat geschickt hatte, die drei geheime Anhänge enthielt: Zwei der Dokumente, mit denen sich Markus R. dem russischen Auslandsnachrichtendienst Sluschba wneschnei raswedki (SWR) andienen wollte, betrafen aktuelle Verdachtsfälle auf Spionage, das dritte enthielt die detaillierte Planung zur Einrichtung und Zielsetzung eines neuen operativen Arbeitsbereichs im BND. Der 32-jährige Schwerbehinderte wurde Mitte März 2016 wegen Landesverrats, der Verletzung von Dienstgeheimnissen und der Bestechlichkeit in fünf Fällen zu einer Haftstrafe von acht Jahren verurteilt.

Höhepunkt einer jahrzehntelangen Ausforschung

Bundesinnenminister Thomas de Maizière hatte den Schaden im August 2014 als „lächerlich“ heruntergespielt. Und auch Finanzminister Wolfgang Schäuble redete den Skandal klein. Er glaubte, über die Dummheit der USA weinen zu müssen, weil sie so einen drittklassigen BND-Mitarbeiter angeworben hatten. Nach der Verhaftung von Markus R. musste der Berliner CIA-Resident im Juli 2014 ausreisen, und der US-amerikanische Botschafter John B. Emerson wurde gleich zwei Mal ins Auswärtige Amt einbestellt.

Es war nicht das erste Mal, dass ein Spitzenmann der Agency aus der Bundesrepublik zurückgezogen wurde. Mitte der 1990er-Jahre musste der Chief of Station der CIA in München Deutschland verlassen. „Wir leben nicht mehr im Kalten Krieg, wo wahrscheinlich jeder jedem anderen misstraute“, kommentierte die Bundeskanzlerin den Fall Markus R. Die USA hatten versucht, die Ausweisung des Residenten durch das Angebot einer neuen Vereinbarung zum Austausch nachrichtendienstlicher Informationen zu vermeiden, aber die Bundesregierung ging darauf nicht ein.

Ein BND-Beamter erklärte gegenüber Newsweek, die CIA habe mit der Annahme eines Selbstanbieters aus dem Dienst eine rote Linie überschritten. Wo die rote Linie zuvor verlief und in welchem Maß die CIA gegen den BND spionierte, macht das Abschlusskapitel deutlich. Dass dieser Fall eines US-Spions im Allerheiligsten des BND keine einmalige Entgleisung der CIA war, sondern nur der Höhepunkt einer jahrzehntelangen Ausforschung des kleinen Partners darstellt, wird das Kapitel zu den (west-)deutsch-amerikanischen Geheimdienstbeziehungen unter Beweis stellen.

Allianz des Misstrauens

Aus der anschließenden Analyse der „Allianz des Misstrauens“, die ihren Niederschlag in der ständigen US-Spionage gegen die unsicheren Kantonisten in Bonn und Berlin fand und die von eher zaghaften Bemühungen des deutschen Auslandsnachrichtendienstes zur Aufklärung der Absichten der westlichen Führungsmacht begleitet wurde, wird klar, dass es die politischen Rahmenbedingungen waren und sind, die das prekäre Verhältnis des US-amerikanischen Geheimdienstapparats zu den (west-)deutschen Sicherheitsbehörden prägten und prägen. So defensiv, wie sich der BND stets gegenüber dem großen Bruder verhielt, so offensiv ging er häufig – wie sich zeigen wird – mit kleinen Partnerdiensten wie denen Österreichs um.

Wie wenig bestellt das Forschungsfeld Geheimdienstkooperation unter westlichen Verbündeten nach 1945 noch weitgehend ist, zeigt sich auch in dem 2015 verfassten Beitrag von Adam D. M. Svendsen über die britisch-amerikanische Zusammenarbeit in der Zeitschrift des Verbandes ehemaliger US-amerikanischer Nachrichtendienstmitarbeiter. Nach einer historischen Einführung und der Skizzierung der Zusammenarbeit zwischen Großbritannien und den USA im Zweiten Weltkrieg stehen bei dem britischen Mitarbeiter des Copenhagen Institute for Futures Studies (CIFS) nur zwei sehr allgemein gehaltene Druckseiten über die geheim gehaltene Kooperation zwischen den angelsächsischen Staaten innerhalb der NATO, die nur auf Kriegsschauplätze von den Falkland-Inseln 1981 bis zur Invasion des Iraks 2003 abheben und kein einziges Detail verraten.

Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones, emeritierter Professor für amerikanische Geschichte an der Universität Edinburgh, hat 2013 ein Werk vorgelegt, das den Anspruch erhebt, „The Story of Western Intelligence“zu sein. Tatsächlich beleuchtet er detailliert und sachkundig jedoch nur das Auf und Ab der britisch-amerikanischen Geheimdienstbeziehungen vom Ersten Weltkrieg bis heute. Nachrichtendienste anderer NATO-Staaten spielen nur eine periphere Rolle.

Forschungsfeld Geheimdienstkooperation wenig bestellt

Natürlich gibt es insbesondere in der angelsächsischen Fachliteratur, aber auch in deutschsprachigen Werken reichliche Fundstellen zum Zusammenwirken westlicher Dienste. Das Thema steht jedoch nicht als Leitmotiv über den Arbeiten, wird weder explizit in den Forschungsmittelpunkt gestellt noch als methodologische Betrachtungsebene eingebracht.

Eine Ausnahme bildet der Forschungsstand zur Organisation Gehlen (Org) unter der Treuhänderschaft der U. S. Army und der CIA, das Verhältnis zwischen den US-Diensten und der Org vor ihrer Übernahme in den Bundesdienst zum 1. April 1956 betreffend. Neben der Arbeit von Jens Wegener liegt mit dem Aufsatz von Thomas Wolf ein erstes Ergebnis der „Unabhängigen Historikerkommission“ des BND dazu vor.

Für die jüngere Zeit gibt es allenfalls Momentaufnahmen wie beispielsweise die Listen der BND-Partnerdienste und -Residenturen unter dessen Präsident Klaus Kinkel oder sektorale Analysen zur Zusammenarbeit westlicher Dienste beispielsweise beim multinationalen Propagandaprojekt Interdoc.

Der wohl einzige durchgängig erforschte Bereich von Partnerdienstbeziehungen ist die Ausgestaltung der Zusammenarbeit bei der fernmelde-elektronischen Aufklärung unter den „Five Eyes“ (USA, Großbritannien, Kanada, Australien und Neuseeland) von 1942. Dafür stehen die Arbeiten von James Bamford aus 2001, „The Ties That Bind“ von Jeffrey T. Richelson und Desmond Ball 1985, in jüngerer Zeit das Buch von Matthew Aid sowie aus britischer Sicht die Geschichte des GCHQ von Robert Aldrich. Die Enthüllungen von Edward Snowden förderten noch aktuellere Fakten zutage, die auch – wie der Untersuchungsausschuss des Deutschen Bundestages zur NSA-Affäre ermittelte – zahlreiche Informationen über die Kooperation zwischen NSA und BND lieferten.

Gegeneinander gerichtete Geheimdienstaktivitäten

Die in den deutschen Medien und im NSA-Untersuchungsausschuss des Bundestages ausführlich thematisierte technische Aufklärung bleibt in diesem Buch weitestgehend ausgespart, insbesondere da, wo es sich um die Massenüberwachung von Telekommunikation handelt. Vorrangig geht es um die Kooperation bei der Aufklärung mit menschlichen Quellen, die Austauschbeziehungen mit ausgewählten Partnerdiensten einerseits und die gegeneinander gerichteten Geheimdienstaktivitäten andererseits.

Der Historiker Christopher Nehring hat im Oktober 2016 den Versuch unternommen, theoretische Modelle von Geheimdienstkooperationen ins Blickfeld der Forschung zu rücken und ein erstes Fazit gezogen:

So zeigt sich anhand der gängigen Theorien der Intelligence Studies, dass Geheimdienstkooperation im aktuellen internationalen System eher eine Ausnahme ist, nicht der Regelfall. Es lassen sich zahlreiche Kooperationshindernisse identifizieren, die eine Zusammenarbeit in diesem sensiblen Feld zumindest deutlich erschweren. Diese Hindernisse, ständige Sicherheits- und Vertrauensdefizite sowie das vorherrschende nationale Interesse der Akteure führen dabei – gerade auch innerhalb von Allianzen und Bündnissen – zu Aufklärungsbemühungen gegenüber Verbündeten. Je heterogener und asymmetrischer Allianzen sind beziehungsweise je dominanter ein Partner in ihnen ist, desto höher ist die Wahrscheinlichkeit eines spying on friends.

Hinter diese Aussagen muss man einige Fragezeichen setzen. Zum einen ist sowohl gleich nach Ende des Zweiten Weltkrieges als auch aktuell die Zusammenarbeit von Nachrichtendiensten trotz gegenläufiger nationaler Interessen und dem eingefleischten Misstrauen der Regelfall für die Dienste im gleichen politischen Lager und wird mit hohem Aufwand betrieben.

Zum anderen erklärt die Dominanz eines Partners nur im Einzelfall – beispielsweise für das amerikanisch-deutsche Verhältnis – das Ausmaß der Spionage unter Freunden. Die intensiven Aufklärungsbemühungen Großbritanniens, Frankreichs oder Italiens gegenüber der mindestens gleichwertigen Bundesrepublik können durch Asymmetrie ebenso wenig erklärt werden wie die weitestgehend harmonischen Beziehungen des BND zu den deutlich kleineren Nachrichtendiensten Dänemarks.

Zusammen- und Gegeneinanderwirken von Partnern

Relativieren muss man auch Nehrings These, die letztlich gescheiterten Bemühungen der Bundesregierung um ein No-Spy-Abkommen mit den USA seien „historisch ohne Präzedenzfall […] und daher ein Novum“ gewesen. Dennis Blair, Barak Obamas 2013 entlassener Director of National Intelligence, hatte im Frühjahr 2010 ein No-Spy-Abkommen zwischen den Nachrichtendiensten der USA und Frankreichs auf den Weg gebracht. Doch der bereits ausgehandelte Verzicht darauf, sich gegenseitig auszuspionieren, scheiterte im Mai am Widerstand des von CIA-Chef Leon Panetta beeinflussten Weißen Hauses, letztlich also am US-Präsidenten.

Das „no go“ der US-Dienste im Falle Frankreichs und der Bundesrepublik war von der Sorge um einen Schneeball-Effekt getragen: Alle Staaten, die sich auf eine politische Freundschaft mit den Vereinigten Staaten berufen, könnten einen ähnlichen Vertrag verlangen und damit die Westaufklärung der US-Dienste zum Erliegen bringen. Vor einer Theoriebildung, die alle Konstellationen und ihre Ursachen erhellt, steht stets die empirische Analyse.

Nur auf der Basis zahlreicher Einzelbefunde zum Zusammen- und Gegeneinanderwirken von Partnerdiensten lässt sich das Spannungsfeld von Kooperation und Konkurrenz in allen Facetten erhellen. Das Buch „Spionage unter Freunden – Partnerdienstbeziehungen und Westaufklärung der Organisation Gehlen und des BND“ unternimmt den Versuch, eine Vielzahl diesbezüglicher Fakten zusammenzutragen.

Criticism and controversies[edit]

Relationship with Gazprom and Rosneft[edit]

As Chancellor, Gerhard Schröder was a strong advocate of the Nord Stream pipeline project, which aims to supply Russian gas directly to Germany, thereby bypassing transit countries. The agreement to build the pipeline was signed two weeks before the German parliamentary election. On 24 October 2005, just a few weeks before Schröder stepped down as Chancellor, the German government guaranteed to cover 1 billion euros of the Nord Stream project cost, should Gazprom default on a loan. However, this guarantee had never been used.[67] Soon after stepping down as chancellor, Schröder accepted Gazprom’s nomination for the post of the head of the shareholders’ committee of Nord Stream AG, raising questions about a potential conflict of interest.

German opposition parties expressed concern over the issue, as did the governments of countries over whose territory gas is currently pumped.[68] In an editorial entitled Gerhard Schroeder’s Sellout, the American newspaper The Washington Post also expressed sharp criticism, reflecting widening international ramifications of Schröder’s new post.[69] Democrat Tom Lantos, chairman of the United States House Committee on Foreign Affairs, likened Schröder to a “political prostitute” for his recent behaviour.[70] In January 2009, the Wall Street Journal reported that Schröder would join the board of the oil company TNK-BP, a joint venture between oil major BP and Russian partners.[71]

In 2016, Schröder switched to become manager of Nord Stream 2, an expansion of the original pipeline in which Gazprom is sole shareholder.[72]

In 2017, Russia nominated Schröder to also serve as an independent director of the board of its biggest oil producer Rosneft.[73] At the time, Rosneft was under Western sanctions over Russia’s role in the Ukraine crisis.[74] Schröder told Blick that he would be paid about $350,000 annually for the part-time post.[75] His decision caused an outcry in Germany and abroad, especially in a climate of fear about any potential Russian interference in the 2017 German elections.[76] German Chancellor Angela Merkelcriticized her predecessor, saying “I do not think what Mr Schröder is doing is okay.”[77]

Is Ernst Uhrlau The Joker? THE DEMIURG? “He’s making us dance and he’s enjoying every minute it. It makes him feel important.” – By Michael Novakhov – 7.1.18

The Leftist Plot against America?

To install the rightist President and to show it as the tragicomic spectacle on the world stage: “Learn your place and your lessons, you stupid fat rich mafiosi Yankees, The “Winners” – “Weiners” – “Whiners”! 

Is this the message from the Great European Social Democracy, from the European Socialism, from the European bastion of  the Western Civilization? 

Who is the Joker-Demiurg? There must be one. It smells like it. 

Investigate this line of thought thoroughly!

And do not rely on the FBI in  this regard. They might be hopelessly, deliberately, and intentionally disabled by the same players who run the main show. 

The new, independent, absolutely apolitical Counterintelligence structures and institutions, under the ODNI umbrella, might be better suited and equipped to handle the complex new challenges. These challenges have to be acknowledged and they have to be dealt with. 

Michael Novakhov

7.4.18

P.S.:

Happy Birthday, America!

_____________________________________

M.N.: There appears to be the universal chorus of the FBI criticism, both from the Left and the Right, from the conservative and from the liberal circles and authors, and also, importantly, from the DOJ itself. Some of their opinions are highlighted and quoted below. The main concerns are the lack of efficiency and the lack of professionalism, which might stem from the same causal factors which have to be objectively studied and understood fully and in-depth. Restricting the access to informationincluding the statistical data, needed for the criminological studies, is not the solution, but the sign of the stonewalling, panic, and helplessness. The problems are complex and multifaceted and have to be acknowledged and addressed. 

Selected Posts

Should The FBI Be Abolished?

But there is a common denominator in all these scandals or alleged scandals, and that would be the FBI and the actions they took or didn’t take… However, it has become increasingly clear in recent years that this agency has become so politicized, so corrupt, and so large and bureaucratic that it may no longer be an effective agency. The time has come to discuss its abolition.

Investigate the investigators! Save America! Reform the FBI now!

“After American intelligence agencies failed to detect and stop Al Qaeda’s 9/11 attack, sixteen years ago, Congress more than doubled their budgets and gave them unprecedented secret authorities. As the intelligence beat reporter for the Washington Post at the time, I watched these agencies grow in size, as dozens of new buildings appeared around the Washington region to house a ballooning workforce of over a million people with top-secret security clearances… 
All these measures, and many more, were put in place in the name of national security. And yet, last year, these vastly larger agencies failed to defend, or even warn, the American public against the most audacious Russian covert operation toward the United States since the end of the Cold War. Only after the fact, when a Russian disinformation campaign had already tainted the 2016 Presidential election, did the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, another vast post-9/11 creation, disclose the Kremlin’s interference. The unclassified January, 2017, report, made public by the O.D.N.I., included only the thinnest of evidence, leaving many people wondering if it were true. Whether the Russian campaign actually changed the outcome of the election is impossible to know, but it clearly succeeded at exacerbating political divisions in the United States and undermining the credibility of the results…”

“Members of Congress should pay special attention to the F.B.I., which conducts counterintelligence in the United States but which, according to most insiders I interviewed recently, is not up to the job of detecting and countering Russian disinformation.”

M.N.: Merkel gets so much mileage out of Trump-Russia affair,

that it becomes increasingly hard to believe that it was not a German design from the beginning, with the roots extending into Obama Administration and further down the road. The Russians, Israelis, and others might have played the secondary roles in these German designs without even realizing it. The ever-present square German clumsiness is the telling sign. – 6.11.18

Germany’s political crisis spreads beyond its frontiers as Austria declares it is ‘ready to protect’ borders from migrants
 

mikenova shared this story .

The political crisis in Germany looked set to spread beyond its frontiers on Tuesday as Austria warned it was “ready to take steps to protect its borders” against migrants.

Angela Merkel would have hoped she had resolved the crisis which threatened to bring down her government when she hammered out a last-minute compromise on Monday night with her rebellious interior minister, Horst Seehofer, to hold migrants at “transit centres” on the German border.

But on Tuesday it appeared the deal could set off the domino effect she warned against and threaten the future of the European Union ’s border-free Schengen Area.

“We will be obliged to take measures to avoid disadvantages for Austria and its people” if the new German deal goes ahead, the Austrian government warned in a statement. The EU must take steps to protect its external borders, Sebastian Kurz, the Austrian chancellor said.

“The German discussion on national  shows once again that we need to focus on external border management,” Mr Kurz told the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

NSA Spähaffäre: Ex-BND boss Uhrlau before investigation committee

The Kazakhstan plot: How German politicians were lured by the millions of dictators and their servants

The NSA committee circles around these questions, and this Friday another prominent witness was on the program: the former head of the Federal Intelligence Service, Ernst Uhrlau.

Under Red-Green he was secret service coordinator in the Chancellery, and from 2005 to 2011 BND president. So he knows both sides of the German espionage system: political control and operational work.

He is now retired. Maybe the 68-year-old looks so relaxed, despite a permanent survey without a break. “I still have choices,” he says politely, offering fresh drinks. In contrast to the acting BND boss Gerhard Schindler , who was interviewed a few weeks ago, he renounces a debauchery initial statement.

After six hours, four insights emerge:

1. The Chancellor’s Office should already have known in 2006: “That the US is interested in much and much more than the Federal Republic of Germany, I was well aware,” said Uhrlau. The fact that the suspicion of US industrial espionage arose in Uhrlaus’ term of office was described in this article by SPIEGEL . Even back then, it was actually about the exploration of the arms company EADS.

However, it is interesting: Uhrlau now said in the Bundestag that he had already informed the responsible department head in the Chancellery in 2006. Not in writing, but “orally determined,” said Uhrlau. He did not inform the then head of the chancellery Thomas de Maizière (CDU). That would have been the responsibility of the department manager.

The statement at least questions the supervisory authority of the former Chancellery Minister. In 2008, there was a conversation with de Maizière in this context, said Uhrlau further. Today’s Minister of the Interior wants to have learned of problematic selectors only in 2015 . In the Bundestag de Maizière will be interviewed next week as a witness. It will be exciting how he explains the contradictions.

2. The German-American cooperation contained a blind spot: the so-called Memorandum of Agreement was agreed after the terrorist attacks of September 11 and under Frank-Walter Steinmeier(SPD) as chancellery chief. It was agreed that the US should not get data of German citizens and vice versa. However, the collection and transmission of data of European espionage targets was not expressly excluded, confirmed Uhrlau, as did his successor Schindler.

3. One did not look so closely: directly to the start of the BND-NSA cooperation was not checked, according to Uhrlau, whether the Americans adhere to the German line, that one spies on principle, no European goals. “It was not examined whether the US orientated itself to the same extent to these restrictions, which we set ourselves.” The findings of 2006 led to the BND, according to Uhrlau to “intensive random sampling” of the American Spähziele. The US finally limited the cooperation in 2008. In the so-called Selektorenliste with questionable Spähzielen had Uhrlau according to own data no insight.

4. The international espionage cooperation is characterized by mistrust: “It was clear that there was an awareness of even the closest ally against the Federal Republic of Germany,” said Uhrlau. Next to the USA he called Great Britain. Both countries had known “unlawful activities” in Germany, such as espionage by diplomats.

The more witness interviews the NSA committee carries out, the more solidified the image of a secret service system, which is characterized in part by confusion of competence, incoherent agreements and sloppiness. BND leader Schindler has already announced house reforms .

On Thursday, the panel had interviewed chancellery staff, while also revealed problems in the information channels. For example, one employee in charge said the term “selectors” was unknown to him before 2013. Another testified that some confidential letters from the BND had never reached him.

The dispute over the sensitive selector list is still not resolved. The files are a list of exactly those search terms with which the NSA is said to have spied on European authorities and companies from Germany.

The Committee of Inquiry wants to see the top secret list. At the moment, however, everything seems to boil down to the fact that only one external Special Representative should be allowed access. Green and Left threaten with a lawsuit for this case.

Monitoring practices of the BND: Even legalized, they violate the constitution
 

mikenova shared this story from netzpolitik.org.

Tomorrow, Friday, the Bundestag will vote on changes to the BND law . The BND legislative package will have grave consequences , to the detriment of fundamental rights and to the benefit of the BND – for its powers are massively expanded .

This legalises what the BND is already doing today. The NSA inquiry committee and revelations in the press have brought to light in the past two and a half years various legal violations and questionable legal opinions and practices of German intelligence agencies.

Instead of restricting them, the legal manifestation of this condition takes place. In disregard of constitutional requirements and against the opinions of many. Among them: three UN Special Rapporteurs, the OSCE, well-known lawyers, business representatives, journalists’ associations, countless human rights organizations, ARD and ZDF, and the opposition in the Bundestag .

The past has taught that expanded powers of government agencies are hardly ever withdrawn. Therefore, the creation of these facts is highly problematic. Especially since the new legal regulations ignore numerous findings from the committee of inquiry. He will submit a final report next year after the interviews are completed.

Teil dieses Berichtes werden gemäß des Untersuchungsauftrages „Empfehlungen zur Wahrung des verfassungsrechtlich gewährleisteten Schutzes der informationellen Selbstbestimmung, der Privatsphäre, des Fernmeldegeheimnisses und der Integrität und Vertraulichkeit informationstechnischer Systeme sowie der sicheren und vertraulichen Kommunikation in der staatlichen Sphäre“ sein.

Grundrechtsfilter funktionieren nicht gut genug

Der BND ist ein Auslandsnachrichtendienst. Er soll im Ausland aufklären. Das heißt auch, dass er keine Deutschen überwachen darf – es sei denn, er hat eine spezielle Genehmigung für den Einzelfall, eine sogenannte G-10-Anordnung. Da der BND aber – bisher – ganze Leitungen abhört und nicht zweifelsfrei alle Kommunikationsverkehre aussortieren kann, an denen zumindest ein Deutscher beteiligt ist, verstößt er regelmäßig gegen Gesetze.

Dass die Filter des BND im Zeitalter von Internetverkehren nicht einhundertprozentig funktionieren können, haben mehrere Zeugen im Untersuchungsausschuss eingestanden. Laut dem geheimen Prüfbericht der Bundesdatenschutzbeauftragten Andrea Voßhoff weisen die Filter des BND „erhebliche systemische Defizite auf“. Zu Beginn sortierte der DAFIS-Filter, kurz für Datenfiltersystem, nur 95 Prozent der deutschen Daten aus. Laut Zeugen konnten später bis zu 99 Prozent Genauigkeit erreicht werden.

Was sich nach viel anhört, ist dennoch zu wenig. Klaus Landefeld, Betreiber des Internetknotens DE-CIX, veranschaulicht, wie viel allein am DE-CIX dennoch falsch zugeordnet wird:

[Wenn wir annehmen,] dass der BND das weltbeste Filtersystem bauen könnte, das 99,9 Prozent erreicht, dann redet man immer noch über mehrere Millionen fehlerhaft getaggter Verbindungen – jeden Tag.

Das BND-Gesetzespaket reagiert damit, dass der BND jetzt nicht mehr einzelne Leitungen anzapfen darf – er bekommt Vollzugriff und darf jetzt gleich in ganzen Kommunikationsnetzen mithören, wenn das Kanzleramt es genehmigt – Überwachung wird damit deutlich zunehmen.

20-Prozent-Regel abgeschafft

Eine fragwürdige Rechtsauffassung des BND betrifft auch die sogenannte 20-Prozent-Regel, die im G-10-Gesetz verankert ist. Hat der Geheimdienst die Genehmigung, auf einer Leitung mitzuhören, dürfen dennoch nur 20 Prozent der „auf diesen Übertragungswegen zur Verfügung stehenden Übertragungskapazität überwacht werden“.

Der BND hintertrieb diese Beschränkung, indem er das Recht für ihn opportun interpretierte. Er zapfte zwar gesetzeskonform jeweils einzelne Leitungen und nicht die Gesamtheit aller Leitungen an. Die 20 Prozent bezog er hingegen auf die Gesamtkapazität aller Leitungen, wie Martin Golke aus dem Bundesamt für Sicherheit in der Informationstechnik (BSI) aussagte. So gelangte er an deutlich mehr Daten als im Sinne des Gesetzes.

Auch ein von uns veröffentlichter Prüfbericht des BSI bestätigt, dass im BND „keine Reduktion implementiert wurde“. Ebenso wie Klaus Landefeld, der die Interpretation des BND kritisierte und aus eigener Erfahrung mit dem Geheimdienst berichtete, dass der BND einen „Vollzugriff“ auf den DE-CIX in Frankfurt am Main wollte.

Mit seiner Rechtsauffassung umging der BND sämtliche Schranken, das sieht man an einem einfachen Beispiel: Der höchste je gemessene Datendurchsatz am DE-CIX in Frankfurt betrug 5,5 Terabit pro Sekunde. Seine Gesamtkapazität beträgt 48 Terabit pro Sekunde (Stand: Dezember 2015). Eine einfache Division zeigt: Die Spitzenauslastung beträgt gerade einmal elf Prozent. Nimmt man den über das letzte Jahr gemittelten Durchschnittswert von circa drei Terabit pro Sekunde, landet man bei einer Auslastung von rund sechs Prozent. Viel Luft nach oben für den BND.

Anstatt diese Begrenzung rechtlich klarzustellen, lautet die Lösung: Wegfall der Grenzen. Wie oben durch die Regelung, dass ganze Telekommunikationsnetze abgehört werden dürfen.

Ausleitung von Metadaten jetzt noch einfacher

Dass der BND bis zu 1,3 Milliarden Metadaten pro Monat an die NSA weiterleitet, hat viele schockiert. Metadaten enthalten Informationen darüber, wer wann mit wem von wo aus kommuniziert. Die Datenweitergabe betraf teilweise ganze Leitungen, lediglich Deutschlandbezüge hat man mit den unzureichend funktionierenden Filtern soweit möglich herausgenommen.

Noch dazu wurde die Datenschutzbeauftragte des BND selbst über diesen Umstand getäuscht, sie wusste über das Ausmaß der Datenweitergabe nicht Bescheid.

Metadaten sind entgegen der Befürworter von Vorratsdatenspeicherung und Co. oftmals aussagekräftiger als Inhaltsdaten und lassen unter anderem Rückschlüsse auf soziale Netzwerke und Bewegungsmuster zu.

Eine weitere Prüfung der an die NSA geleiteten Metadaten erfolgte nicht. Es existieren für Metadaten keine Selektoren, die sich auf bestimmte Spionageziele bezogen, wie auch Ex-BND-Präsident Gerhard Schindler im Ausschuss bestätigte.

Metadaten können von den USA für Tötungen verwendet werden

Genausowenig erfolgt eine Prüfung dessen, was die USA mit diesen Daten anstellen. Besonders bei Befragungen von Mitarbeitern des Bundesverfassungsschutzes (BfV) wurde blindes Vertrauen gegenüber den USA deutlich, dass der Partner schon nichts Falsches mit den Daten machen werde. Angesichts einer Äußerung von Michael Hayden aus dem Jahr 2014, ehemals NSA- und CIA-Direktor, kommt man ins Zweifeln. Er sagte geradeheraus: „We kill people based on metadata“ – Wir töten Menschen auf Basis von Metadaten.

Immerhin habe man im BfV wie im BND einen Disclaimer hinzugefügt. Der besagt, dass Daten nur zu nachrichtendienstlichen Zwecken genutzt werden dürfen. So zumindest die Aussagen mehrerer Zeugen. Doch alle Zeugen verschwiegen einen Teil des eigentlich geheimen Disclaimers. Kai Biermann veröffentlichte auf Zeit Online den zweiten Absatz, der Anlass zur Nachdenklichkeit bietet:

Eine Verwendung zum Zwecke des Einsatzes tödlicher Gewalt ist nur dann zulässig, solange und soweit ein gegenwärtiger Angriff vorliegt oder unmittelbar droht.

Da sich die USA nach Selbstdefinition seit 2001 im ständigen Krieg gegen den Terror befinden, ist die Voraussetzung zumindest aus Sicht der Amerikaner erfüllt. Im Klartext: Die USA nutzen Metadaten unter anderem, um Ziele für Drohnentötungen auszuwählen und zu orten. Auch wenn BND und Bundesverfassungsschutz das Wissen leugnen, dass allein eine Telefonnummer genügt, um Menschen zu orten: Wissenschaftliche Gutachten kommen zu anderen Ergebnissen. Dass vor diesem Hintergrund die Änderungen am BND-Gesetz eine Metadatenweitergabe nicht einschränken, erscheint geradezu zynisch.

Der BND darf weiterhin ohne die Einschränkung auf Suchbegriffe und ohne den Verdacht auf eine bestimmte Zielperson Metadaten sammeln und sie sechs Monate lang speichern. Seine Zusammenarbeit mit der NSA wird noch einfacher, denn automatisierte Datenweitergabe wäre völlig legal. Ob keine unzulässigen Daten übermittelt werden, soll „stichprobenartig überprüft werden“ – was bei der schieren Masse an Daten kaum wirksame Kontrolle darstellt.

Nur für das Anzapfen von Inhaltsdaten gelten Beschränkungen. Aber es sind Beschränkungen, die ihren Namen nicht verdient haben. Denn eine Beschränkung auf Daten, die für die Gewinnung von „sonstige[n] Erkenntnisse[n] von außen- und sicherheitspolitischer Bedeutung“ notwendig sind, ist in der Realität keine.

Der BND entzieht sich jeglicher Kontrolle …

An vielen Stellen hat sich während des Untersuchungsausschusses gezeigt, dass die derzeitige Kontrolle der deutschen Geheimdienste nicht funktioniert. Mehrere Mitglieder der G-10-Kommission, die Überwachungsmaßnahmen nach Artikel-10-Gesetz prüft und genehmigt, fühlten sich vom BND in ihrer Aufsicht getäuscht. So das ehemalige Mitglied Hans de With, der im Untersuchungsausschuss aussagte, dass die Kommission nicht über die Operation Eikonal informiert wurde – obwohl das seiner Meinung nach notwendig gewesen wäre.

Eine weitere Beschränkung ihrer Kontrolle erfuhr die G-10-Kommission bei den NSA-Selektoren. Die Einsichtnahme bleibt der Kommission nach wie vor verwehrt, sie fühlte sich „hinter die Fichte geführt“, klagte daraufhin vor dem Bundesverfassungsgericht und scheiterte jüngst, da das Gericht ihre Klageberechtigung nicht anerkannte.

Beim Parlamentarischen Kontrollgremium (PKGr) sieht es nicht besser aus. Das ehemalige Mitglied des Gremiums, Wolfgang Nešković, wies auf das Problem hin, dass Geheimdienstmitarbeiter das Gremium belügen können, ohne strafrechtliche Konsequenzen fürchten zu müssen. Die Mitglieder des PKGr tagen in absoluter Geheimhaltung und dürfen außerdem nicht über ihre Erkenntnisse sprechen, nicht einmal mit der G-10-Kommission oder ihren Fraktionsvorsitzenden. Geschweige denn dürfen sie der Öffentlichkeit Erkenntnisse über politische Bewertungen hinaus mitteilen. Die PKGr-Mitglieder dürfen auch keine Mitarbeiter in ihre Arbeit einbinden. Mit neun Menschen Geheimdienste zu kontrollieren, die daneben vielfältige andere Aufgaben wahrnehmen, ist eine nicht zu bewältigende Aufgabe.

Kontrollen durch die Behörde der oder des Bundesdatenschutzbeauftragten versuchte sich der BND soweit möglich zu entziehen. In einem geheimen Prüfbericht beschwerte sich die aktuelle Bundesdatenschutzbeauftragte Andrea Voßhoff darüber, dass ihre „gesetzliche Kontrollkompetenz rechtswidrig beschränkt“ wurde. Wir veröffentlichten auch Dokumente, die zeigen, wie der BND Angst vor einem Kontrollbesuch der Datenschützer hatte, die Behörde hinhielt und gemeinsam mit dem Bundeskanzleramt überlegte, welche Rechtsgrundlagen man für die eigenen Praktiken im Falle eines Besuchs präsentieren könnte.

… und das Bundeskanzleramt hilft dabei

Das Bundeskanzleramt, das für die Fach- und Dienstaufsicht über den BND zuständig ist, erwies sich ebenfalls nicht als geeignete Stelle für die Kontrolle des Auslandsgeheimdienstes. Es stellte beispielsweise 2003 einen Freibrief aus, damit der BND im Rahmen der Operation Eikonal entgegen der Bedenken der Deutschen Telekom Daten an Glasfaserleitungen ausleiten konnte. Diesen Brief unterschrieb Ernst Uhrlau, der zur besagten Zeit im Bundeskanzleramt als Abteilungsleiter für die BND-Aufsicht zuständig war. Der Brief war kein Alltagsgeschäft. Uhrlau hingegen wollte sich in seiner Befragung kaum noch an ihn erinnern können. Er habe den Inhalt nicht geprüft, sondern ihn einfach unterschrieben.

Als 2013 der BND die Weltraumtheorie erfand und herbeifantasierte, dass er sich bei der Satellitenaufklärung nicht an das BND-Gesetz halten müsse, da sich die Satelliten im Weltraum und damit im rechtsfreien Raum befänden, machte sich das Bundeskanzleramt die Meinung des Geheimdienstes innerhalb kürzester Zeit zu eigen. Trotz erheblicher Bedenken und Angst vor der „kaum zu bestehenden intensiven öffentlichen Diskussion“.

Ebenso in Zweifel steht, ob das Kanzleramt dem Parlament gegenüber bei der Beantwortung einiger Fragen immer nach bestem Wissen vorgegangen ist. Außerdem tritt es im Untersuchungsausschuss als Wahrer der Geheimhaltung gegenüber der Öffentlichkeit auf. Philipp Wolff, der die Bundesregierung im Ausschuss repräsentiert, entzog in einer Sitzung sogar Ex-BND-Präsident Gerhard Schindler das Wort und verwies ihn darauf, dass er keine Aussagegenehmigung habe.

Konstantin von Notz, Obmann der Grünen im Untersuchungsausschuss, wirft der Bundesregierung ihr Verhalten vor:

Man wusste sehr genau, dass deutsche Nachrichtendienste Teil des weltumspannenden geheimdienstlichen Überwachungssystems sind. Im Zuge der Aufklärung im Parlamentarischen Untersuchungsausschuss des Bundestages wurde deutlich: Die Bundesregierung hat ihre Dienst- und Fachaufsicht nicht nur nicht ernst genommen, sondern das in Teilen offen rechtswidrige Agieren des BND über Jahre gedeckt und sogar selbst befördert.

Es soll nun noch ein weiteres Gremium entstehen, das den BND kontrolliert: Das sogenannte „Unabhängige Gremium“. Es soll sich aus insgesamt sechs Mitgliedern zusammensetzen und vom Bundeskabinett der Regierung bestimmt werden. Wieder tagt es geheim, dem PKGr soll es mindestens alle sechs Monate „in abstrakter Form“ berichten. Eine weitere Zerfaserung eines von der Bundesregierung berufenen Gremiums. Eine Verbesserung der Kontrollsituation lässt sich daraus nicht ableiten, auch ohne überbordendes Misstrauen gegenüber der Bereitwilligkeit der Dienste, sich überhaupt kontrollieren zu lassen. Christian Flisek, Obmann der SPD im Untersuchungsausschuss, macht gegenüber <a href=”http://netzpolitik.org” rel=”nofollow”>netzpolitik.org</a> deutlich, dass auch die SPD mit diesem Vorschlag von Kontrolle nicht zufrieden ist:

Die Kontrolle in Zusammenhang mit der Auslands-Auslands-Überwachung hätten wir gerne einer reformierten G 10-Kommission überantwortet. Hier hat die CDU/CSU jedoch blockiert.

Gesetz wertet die Arbeit des Untersuchungsausschusses ab

Bundesregierung und die Große Koalition ignorieren nicht nur die Kritik zahlreicher außerparlamentarischer Stellen, sie werten auch die Arbeit des NSA-Untersuchungsausschusses ab, indem sie bereits jetzt Fakten schaffen. Noch dazu solche, die den Erkenntnissen aus dem Untersuchungsausschuss über rechts- und verfassungswidriges Handeln des BND entgegenstehen.

Der Ausschussvorsitzende Patrick Sensburg aus der Unionsfraktion kommentiert gegenüber <a href=”http://netzpolitik.org” rel=”nofollow”>netzpolitik.org</a>, dass er das BND-Gesetz begrüßt und im Zeitpunkt der Verabschiedung kein Problem sieht (vollständige Statements aller angefragten Ausschussmitglieder unten):

Ausgeschlossen ist nicht, dass der NSA-Untersuchungsausschuss weitere Vorschläge zu rechtlichen und organisatorischen Verbesserungen mit Blick auf die parlamentarische und administrative Kontrolle und die interne Organisation des BND abgeben wird.

Er wird gestützt von seiner Fraktionskollegin Nina Warken, Obfrau der Union. Sie gibt der Opposition die Schuld, dass der Ausschuss noch nicht fertig ist. Die Koalition habe „eindringlich appelliert, die Arbeit des Ausschusses so rechtzeitig abzuschließen, dass die Ergebnisse der Ausschussarbeit noch in dieser Wahlperiode in notwendige gesetzgeberische Maßnahmen einfließen können. Das hierfür notwendige Einvernehmen mit den Oppositionsfraktionen ließ sich bedauerlicherweise nicht herstellen.“ Daher wolle man „die notwendigen Gesetzesänderungen bereits jetzt angehen“.

Angesichts der Fülle der noch aufzuklärenden Sachverhalte ist klar, dass der Ausschuss seine Arbeit nicht einfach abschließen können wird. Egal wie lange er in dieser Legislaturperiode noch tagen wird, die Menge an offen gebliebenen Themen und Fragestellungen würde leicht noch weitere Ausschüsse füllen. Martina Renner, Obfrau der Linken im Ausschuss, sieht die Verabschiedung der Gesetze vor Abschluss des Ausschusses als Kalkül:

Die Koalition wird am Freitag die Grundrechtsverletzung von Millionen von Menschen in Gesetzesform gießen. Es ist kein Zufall, dass das Gesetz verabschiedet wird, bevor der NSA-Untersuchungsausschuss seinen Bericht vorgelegt hat. Wir haben in unserer Arbeit herausgestellt, dass die Praxis des BND illegal ist. Nun sollen flott die rechtlichen Bedingungen der Tätigkeit des Geheimdienstes angepasst werden. Statt den Brandherd zu löschen, demontiert diese Bundesregierung die Rauchmelder.

Auch von Notz ist hochgradig unzufrieden mit dem Gesetzesvorschlag von Regierung und Großer Koalition. Zwar sei der Reformbedarf „unbestritten hoch“, aber „die von der Bundesregierung vorgelegten Vorschläge beheben die offen zu Tage getretenen Probleme nicht etwa, sondern verschärfen sie weiter“.

Auch grundgesetzlich dringend notwendige Klarstellungen, beispielsweise bezüglich des tatsächlich effektiven Schutzes persönlicher Kommunikation und der zwingenden Beachtung von Artikel 10 Grundgesetz werden bewusst nicht angegangen. Zudem erleben wir erneut den Versuch, ganze Bereiche der parlamentarischen Kontrolle zu entziehen. All dies geschieht bewusst. Die Kritik an der „Reform“ und dem großkoalitionären Vorgehen ist zurecht massiv. Das Vorgehen der Bundesregierung hilft den Diensten nicht. Aus rechtsstaatlicher Sicht ist es schlicht skandalös. Vor diesem Hintergrund sehen wir uns gezwungen, uns den erneuten Gang nach Karlsruhe offenzuhalten.

Flisek steht der ablehnenden Haltung zum BND-Gesetzespaket skeptisch gegenüber. Es scheine ihm, dass „nicht wenige Kritiker der Reform keine Reform wollen, sondern ein Verbot“ und er mahnt an: „Das mag populär sein, seriös oder verantwortlich ist es nicht. Wir brauchen rechtsstaatlich legitimierte und effizient arbeitende Nachrichtendienste zur Gewährleistung unserer Sicherheit.“

Der von von Notz angesprochene „Gang nach Karlsruhe“ – also vor das Bundesverfassungsgericht – erscheint als erfolgsversprechende Option, denn die Verfassungskonformität des Gesetzes wurde bereits von vielen Seiten stark angezweifelt. Es offenbart sich damit ein bedenklicher Dauerzustand: Auf das Erlassen verfassungswidriger Gesetze folgen Klagen. Solche Klagen dauern mehrere Jahre. Jahre, während derer die Gesetze in Kraft sind. Es ist daher höchste Zeit, dass die Regierung sich darauf besinnt, das Verabschieden verfassungswidriger Gesetze zu unterlassen und aufzuhören, sowohl den Untersuchungsausschuss als auch die Öffentlichkeit zu ignorieren und weiterhin mantra-artig ihre Sicherheitspolitik mit der Angst vor Terror zu rechtfertigen.

Statements von Vorsitzendem und Obleuten

Patrick Sensburg, CDU, Vorsitzender des Untersuchungsausschusses:

Das BND-Gesetz schafft für die Auslands-Auslandsaufklärung gesetzliche Klarheit. Von den Voraussetzungen für die Erhebung und die Verarbeitung, über die Kooperationsmöglichkeiten, bis hin zur Löschung der Daten, schafft das Gesetz neue Regelungen. Auch die Übermittlung von Informationen durch den Bundesnachrichtendienst wird detailliert geregelt. Der Bundesnachrichtendienst, dessen Wichtigkeit auch gerade heute wieder deutlich wird, erhält so ein klares Gesetz für seine Tätigkeit. Ausgeschlossen ist nicht, dass der NSA-Untersuchungsausschuss weitere Vorschläge zu rechtlichen und organisatorischen Verbesserungen mit Blick auf die parlamentarische und administrative Kontrolle und die interne Organisation des BND abgeben wird.

Nina Warken, Obfrau der Union im Untersuchungsausschuss:

In den bisher bereits mehr als 100 Sitzungen des Untersuchungsausschusses haben wir verschiedene organisatorische und technische Missstände sowie die Konkretisierungsbedürftigkeit einiger gesetzlicher Regelungen festgestellt. All das wollen wir über BND-interne Weisungen hinaus auch formalgesetzlich klarstellen, und zwar so schnell wie möglich. Deshalb ist es uns als Union wichtig, dass wir beispielsweise den besseren Schutz von EU-Bürgern möglichst zügig in Gesetzesform gießen. Die Koalition hat zu Beginn der Beweisaufnahme im Untersuchungsausschuss eindringlich appelliert, die Arbeit des Ausschusses so rechtzeitig abzuschließen, dass die Ergebnisse der Ausschussarbeit noch in dieser Wahlperiode in notwendige gesetzgeberische Maßnahmen einfließen können. Das hierfür notwendige Einvernehmen mit den Oppositionsfraktionen ließ sich bedauerlicherweise nicht herstellen. Da der Abschlussbericht des Ausschusses erst im Juni 2017 vorliegen wird und danach in dieser Wahlperiode keine entsprechenden Maßnahmen mehr umsetzbar wären, wollen wir die notwendigen Gesetzesänderungen deshalb bereits jetzt angehen.

Christian Flisek, Obmann für die SPD im Untersuchungsausschuss:

Mir wurde schon früh im Laufe der Arbeit des NSA-Untersuchungsausschusses klar, dass es unverantwortlich wäre, erst den Abschlussbericht für Reformvorschläge zu nutzen. Berichte zum Ende der Wahlperiode fallen oft der Diskontinuität anheim. Deshalb hat die SPD-Fraktion schon im Sommer 2015 detaillierte Eckpunkte für eine Regelung der Überwachung ausländischer Telekommunikation durch den BND erarbeitet und der Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt war klar und deutlich, dass der BND bei den „Routineverkehren“ schon zu lange im rechtlichen Graubereich agiert hat. Unsere Forderungen haben die Reform des BND-Gesetzes herbeigeführt und sind größtenteils dort eingeflossen. Dabei haben wir – international einmalig – Standards auch für EU-Bürger und Institutionen geschaffen. Darüber hinaus normieren wir ein Verbot der Wirtschaftsspionage. Die Leitung des BND und das Bundeskanzleramt werden verpflichtet, den BND an die kurze Leine zu nehmen. Sie tragen dafür in Zukunft auch die politische Verantwortung.

Die Kontrolle in Zusammenhang mit der Auslands-Auslands-Überwachung hätten wir gerne einer reformierten G 10-Kommission überantwortet. Hier hat die CDU/CSU jedoch blockiert. Mir scheinen nicht wenige Kritiker der Reform keine Reform zu wollen, sondern ein Verbot. Ein Verbot der Fernmeldeaufklärung oder gleich des ganzen BND. Das mag populär sein, seriös oder verantwortlich ist es nicht. Wir brauchen rechtsstaatlich legitimierte und effizient arbeitende Nachrichtendienste zur Gewährleistung unserer Sicherheit.

Konstantin von Notz, Obmann für Bündnis 90/Die Grünen im Untersuchungsausschuss:

Die Enthüllungen von Edward Snowden stellten zweifellos eine Zäsur dar. Sie waren die Grundlage für die parlamentarische Aufarbeitung des Skandals, in den sowohl die deutschen Nachrichtendienste als auch die Bundesregierung eng verstrickt sind. Die Bundesregierung hat stets suggeriert von den Ereignissen komplett überrascht worden zu sein und beteuert, deutsche Nachrichtendienste hielten sich an Recht und Gesetz. Der Versuch des damaligen Kanzleramtschefs Pofalla, den Skandal einfach abzumoderieren, bleibt denkwürdig. Legendär auch der Kanzlerinnen-Ausspruch „Abhören unter Freunden, das geht gar nicht“. Heute wissen wir, dass all dies nicht der Wahrheit entsprach und die Bundesregierung nur ein Ziel verfolgte: Die eigene Rolle und die der Nachrichtendienste auf Biegen und Brechen aus dem Bundestagswahlkampf herauszuhalten. Man wusste sehr genau, dass deutsche Nachrichtendienste Teil des weltumspannenden geheimdienstlichen Überwachungssystems sind. Im Zuge der Aufklärung im Parlamentarischen Untersuchungsausschuss des Bundestages wurde deutlich: Die Bundesregierung hat ihre Dienst- und Fachaufsicht nicht nur nicht ernst genommen, sondern das in Teilen offen rechtswidrige Agieren des BND über Jahre gedeckt und sogar selbst befördert. Der Reformbedarf ist, sowohl was die rechtlich definierten Befugnisse der Dienste, als auch die parlamentarische Kontrolle angeht, unbestritten hoch. Die von der Bundesregierung vorgelegten Vorschläge beheben die offen zu Tage getretenen Probleme jedoch nicht etwa, sondern verschärfen sie weiter. Auch grundgesetzlich dringend notwendige Klarstellungen, beispielsweise bezüglich des tatsächlich effektiven Schutzes persönlicher Kommunikation und der zwingenden Beachtung von Artikel 10 Grundgesetz werden bewusst nicht angegangen. Zudem erleben wir erneut den Versuch, ganze Bereiche der parlamentarischen Kontrolle zu entziehen. All dies geschieht bewusst. Die Kritik an der „Reform“ und dem großkoalitionären Vorgehen ist zurecht massiv. Das Vorgehen der Bundesregierung hilft den Diensten nicht. Aus rechtsstaatlicher Sicht ist es schlicht skandalös. Vor diesem Hintergrund sehen wir uns gezwungen, uns den erneuten Gang nach Karlsruhe offenzuhalten.

Martina Renner, Chairwoman for The Left in the committee of inquiry:

The coalition will pour the fundamental rights violation of millions of people into law on Friday. It is no coincidence that the law will be passed before the NSA inquiry committee has presented its report. We have pointed out in our work that the practice of the BND is illegal. Now the legal conditions of the activity of the secret service are to be adapted fast. Instead of extinguishing the source of the fire, this federal government dismantles the smoke detectors.

Huma Abedin backed up emails to Anthony Weiner’s laptop
 

mikenova shared this story from News | Mail Online.

Huma Abedin backed up copies of her emails with Hillary Clinton to her pervert husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop, <a href=”http://DailyMail.com” rel=”nofollow”>DailyMail.com</a> can disclose – conflicting with her account to the FBI and in court that she did not preserve the conversations.

An examination by <a href=”http://DailyMail.com” rel=”nofollow”>DailyMail.com</a> of emails released by the State Department shows that backup copies of many of Abedin’s work-related messages with Clinton were created in the dates after Clinton left the State Department in early 2013.

The emails, released at the end of December, show that they had been put on Weiner’s laptop by a BlackBerry archiving program.

A tech expert told <a href=”http://Dailymail.com” rel=”nofollow”>Dailymail.com</a> that Abedin would have to have activated the backup program and may well have plugged her device into the laptop – raising further questions over her testimony to the FBI.

Abedin was Clinton’s deputy chief of staff at the State Department and remains her closest aide.

Like Clinton, she was cleared by then FBI director James Comey in the wake of the investigation into the former Secretary of State and her staff’s handling of classified material.

Last Thursday it was revealed that the Department of Justice is looking again at the Clinton email investigation, after President Donald Trump’s provocative tweet calling for ‘jail’ for Abedin. It is also being examined by the FBI’s Inspector General.

The disclosure that Abedin made backups will raise further questions over Comey’s decision-making and is likely to be studied by the Department of Justice’s renewed probe.

The emails were discovered by the FBI just weeks before the 2016 election when the agency seized Weiner’s laptop after <a href=”http://DailyMail.com” rel=”nofollow”>DailyMail.com</a> revealed he was sexting a 15-year-old girl, an offense for which he is now behind bars.

The FBI sought permission to review its other contents when they realized that the laptop contained not just evidence of his perverted grooming of a minor, but emails from the notorious <a href=”http://Clintonemail.com” rel=”nofollow”>Clintonemail.com</a> server.

Comey sent shockwaves through the election when he revealed that the Clinton email probe had been renewed in October because of the discovery of emails on Weiner’s laptop.

He quickly abandoned it, saying the emails were not new, but Clinton continues to believe that his actions helped cost her the election.

Since then legal action by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has forced the release of hundreds of emails, including a latest tranche at the end of last week which show that they were on Weiner’s laptop because they had been backed up from another device.

What is unclear is whether the FBI agents who examined the emails found in Weiner’s laptop in October appreciated that their presence there contradicted Abedin’s evidence to them and a deposition she made under oath.

Abedin had told FBI investigators that she did not have a method of preserving the emails she exchanged on a private server with Clinton.

‘Abedin stated that she lost most of her old emails as a result of the transition [from the State Department].

‘She had only accessed <a href=”http://clintonemail.com” rel=”nofollow”>clintonemail.com</a> through a web portal and did not have a method for archiving her old emails prior to the transition,’ said notes taken during an FBI interview of Huma Abedin on April 5, 2016.

Abedin gave a similar response when she was deposed under oath by attorneys from Judicial Watch on June 28, 2016.

‘With respect to those State Department work-related emails on the <a href=”http://Clintonemail.com” rel=”nofollow”>Clintonemail.com</a> accounts, what did you do, if anything, to preserve those emails?’ asked an attorney with Judicial Watch, according to a transcript of the deposition.

Abedin responded that she ‘did not do anything to preserve those emails’.

‘The instances where it was Clintonemail to Clintonemail, there were instances where the content of those emails had personal matters in there, and there may have also been State Department matters in there, too.

‘It was a – a combination. But I did not – I did not preserve those e-mails,’ added Abedin.

Abedin and other members of Clinton’s inner circle at the State Department used multiple email addresses – including one official State Department account, and another on Clinton’s private email server located at her home.

Abedin testified that she left all of her emails from her Clinton server account in her inbox after leaving the State Department. She said she did not delete any emails.

‘I just left everything on what – on the system, I guess,’ she said during her deposition.

The discovery of the existence of the Clinton server has led to a series of lawsuits by Judicial Watch.

It was during one of those that Abedin was deposed under oath and it was due to another one that the State Department had to release the latest tranche of emails last Friday.

Abedin has said she was not aware that her emails were on Weiner’s laptop and did not know how they ended up on his computer.

She reportedly used the laptop occasionally to check her messages.

Some of the emails found on Weiner’s laptop were forwarded to him directly from Abedin, their details show.

But many of them ended up on the computer through the backups of Abedin’s BlackBerry on February 3, 2013 and February 7, 2013. She had left the State Department, like Clinton, on January 20.

The messages were archived from ‘BBB Backup’ and ‘LoaderBackup’ from a BlackBerry Bold 9700.

Ariel Coro, a technology consultant and analyst for Univision, reviewed the emails and told <a href=”http://DailyMail.com” rel=”nofollow”>DailyMail.com</a> that Abedin or someone working for her would have had to intentionally set up the backup program for her BlackBerry.

‘What you’re seeing here is a backup restore of what was sent from her phone,’ said Coro.

‘They set up a backup to be done when she plugged it in to her computer, to the laptop, or potentially over the air [remotely].

‘This is not an accident, this was configured to back up, either directly [to the laptop] or through the air,’ he added. ‘This was something that was configured, or at least opted-in.’

That means that either Abedin, or an assistant, consciously set up the backup system or that she confirmed that she wanted to backup when she was prompted to by her BlackBerry.

Once that program was set up, it could be scheduled to archive her data automatically. It could have also been programmed to save phone contacts, photos, texts and other phone data.

The emails released by the State Department included at least five messages from Abedin that were marked ‘Classified’ and were found on Weiner’s laptop.

The government classifies information at that level when its exposure ‘reasonably could be expected to cause damage to national security.’

The classified messages included discussions on Israel and other Middle Eastern issues from 2010, 2011 and 2012.

Erik Prince wants to build Trump a private spy network, according to report

Erik Prince — the founder of

controversial military contract firm Blackwater

, major GOP donor, Hillsdale alumni, and brother to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos — wants to build President Donald Trump a private spy network, according to a

report

 by

The Intercept

. The arrangement would allow Trump to circumvent the CIA and the so-called the “deep state.”

According to the report, a senior official says the Trump administration is considering proposals from Prince to create “a global, private spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies” to counter “‘deep state’ enemies in the intelligence community seeking to undermine Donald Trump’s presidency.” The alleged proposal would create a spy network in countries deemed “denied areas” for current American intelligence personnel, including North Korea and Iran.

“[CIA Director Mike] Pompeo can’t trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him,” a former senior U.S. intelligence official told

The Intercept

. “The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.”

The White House and National Security Council, however, have vehemently denied the allegations.

“I can find no evidence that this ever came to the attention of anyone at the NSC or [White House] at all,” a National Security Councils spokesman told

The Intercept

. “The White House does not and would not support such a proposal.” A CIA spokesperson said, “You have been provided wildly inaccurate information by people peddling an agenda.”

 It wouldn’t be the first time Prince attempted to circumvent traditional government channels. In April,

The Washington Postreported

 that Prince held a secret meeting in the Seychelles islands to establish a back channel line of communication between then-President-elect Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

Nazi Sympathizers Pushing to Take Over Europe’s Spy Agencies
 

mikenova shared this story from The Daily Beast Latest Articles.

A slow-simmering scandal in Austria has brought into public view potentially disastrous divisions among Western intelligence agencies. As far-right politicians have joined coalition governments in Austria and Italy and taken ministerial positions in charge of security and law enforcement, concerns have grown among intelligence professionals that they will ignore or even encourage the threat of violent ultra-right extremists.

The extreme right is now in charge of the interior ministries in both Vienna and Rome, putting conspicuous pressure on the intelligence services. In Austria, there have even been police raids on the homes and offices of top intelligence service staffers.

Already, at least some intelligence sharing between Germany and Austria appears to have been curtailed, and the relationship between Italy’s extreme-right-wing interior minister Matteo Salvini and other major European countries is severely, publicly strained. French President Emmanuel Macron last week likened the rise of such populists to “leprosy all across Europe.”

At the same time, these far-right politicians’ open friendliness toward Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, the KGB veteran who may have helped some of them get elected, raises grave security issues for the NATO alliance. And the fact that right-wing U.S. President Donald Trump appears to be playing a similar game—trying to discredit U.S. intelligence professionals while flirting with Putin—greatly heightens the sense of alarm.

“It’s like the fox guarding the henhouse. It doesn’t make any sense.”

— Mike Carpenter to The Daily Beast

The rise of far-right parties across Europe and their control of intelligence agencies is a real cause for concern, says Mike Carpenter, a former deputy assistant secretary of defense and now the senior director of the Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania.

Far-right groups and political parties across Europe have close ties to Russia and may be sponsored by the Kremlin. Some even have close links to Russian intelligence services, said Carpenter. So for these groups to head the intelligence services charged with protecting their countries from foreign meddling is “like the fox guarding the henhouse,” said Carpenter. “It doesn’t make any sense.”

It also has implications for the U.S. government. “On the intelligence side, it raises alarms because of the nature of the sensitive information we share with our allies and partners,” said Carpenter. “That’s something that could potentially compromise sources and methods.

“Take a look at some of these politicians who have now been put in front of intelligence services and ministries of the interior, dig into their backgrounds and see if any of them have links to Russia,” said Carpenter.

Affinity for Russia is a well-known feature of far-right groups across Europe. “There is a tendency among European far-right parties to idealize Russia as a white supremacist far-right state, though that’s not accurate,” said Olga Oliker, director of the Russia and Eurasia program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “But it is something that Russia has been happy to take advantage of.

“If there are people who like Russia in these organizations, there is an increased risk that this information could be passed to Russia,” said Oliker. But, she added, “There are all sorts of reasons to be concerned about far-right groups taking control of intel that have nothing to do with Russia. They tend to be high on repression and low on citizens’ rights.”

“This is about ultra-nationalist leaders with authoritarian leanings hijacking the institutions of state.”

— A former senior military commander and U.S. intelligence official

All this comes at an extremely delicate political moment. At a European Union summit at the end of this week, the big issue will be immigration, as the EU tries to devise a coherent policy after years of conflicting positions in the face of a flood of refugees from the Middle East and Africa. Then, next month, Trump will likely meet Putin in Europe at roughly the same time he attends a NATO summit.

In the past, even when there were major political differences among allies (as there were, for instance, between the Americans and the French in the run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq), the cooperation among the professional intelligence agencies remained strong. But that may no longer be the case, according to several veteran intelligence sources.

“I don’t think it is just about the intelligence agencies and their relationships waxing or waning,” a former senior military commander and leader in the field of U.S. intelligence said in an email to The Daily Beast. “We’ve had challenges in the past when agencies persisted in keeping their heads in the sand over issues we thought quite clearly evident but which our counterparts found uncomfortable politically.

“Rather, this is about ultra-nationalist leaders with authoritarian leanings hijacking the institutions of state that used to provide checks and balances. And nothing fuels that better than an ‘external’ threat to one’s existence as a national culture, with all that follows. Needless to say, Hitler perfected this. And other would-be authoritarians are doing likewise.

“But the truth is that European countries really do need to come to grips with the unprecedented influx of refugees and immigrants of different ethnic and sectarian groupings and determine how to turn some away humanely and accept others without the country’s own sense of identity and culture being eroded.”

“We are on the verge of a civil war.”

— DGSI Chief Patrick Calvar in 2016

Two years ago, Patrick Calvar, the then-head of France’s General Directorate of Internal Security (DGSI), warned a commission at the National Assembly in Paris that European society was at a tipping point after the January 2015 massacres at the Paris offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and at a kosher supermarket, the November 2015 carnage at Paris cafés and the Bataclan concert hall and other incidents. And the problem was not just with Muslim terrorists, but with anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant extremists on what he called the “ultra-right.”

Calvar’s closed-door session with the parliamentary committee reportedly painted an extremely bleak picture: “We are on the verge of a civil war,” he said. His public testimony was hardly more optimistic. “Europe is in great danger,” Calvar said. “Extremism is rising all over and we are—we, the internal security services—are in the process of redeploying resources to focus on the ultra-right that is waiting for nothing but a confrontation.”

Also in 2016, German spy chief Hans-Georg Maassen warned that right-wing extremists in Germany were now networking with similar groups across Europe.

Just last weekend, 10 people were arrested in France under suspicion they were planning attacks on mosques, radical muslim leaders, and women wearing veils picked at random. Their website, called “Guerre de France,” or war for France, advocates preparation for the war to come, and not only against Muslims but against Jews as well.

“Salvini previously has called for ‘mass cleansing, street by street, quarter by quarter’ to get rid of migrants.”

In Italy, far-right politician Matteo Salvini now serves as head of Italy’s interior ministry, which handles internal security and terrorism. Salvini, who assumed office on June 1, previously has called for “mass cleansing, street by street, quarter by quarter” to get rid of migrants. One of his first acts as interior minister was to announce a census for the Roma minority, declaring that Roma without Italian citizenship would have to leave the country.

In Austria, the specific incident that has crystallized wider concerns in the world of espionage and counterespionage as well as counterterror was a series of raids ordered by the far-right interior minister earlier this year on the offices of the professional domestic intelligence chief, whose organization had in the past conducted and coordinated with Germany its surveillance of right-wing extremists.

Although there is no official confirmation, several reports indicate Germany has since quit sharing such sensitive information with Austria. And as one long-time security adviser to several French presidents told The Daily Beast, “The Austrian operation against the intelligence service by the ministry of interior had an impact on every other intelligence service in the West.” It was seen as, potentially, the shape of things to come.

Austria’s far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ) gained control of the interior ministry in December, after the center-right party agreed to form a ruling coalition with the once-scorned FPÖ.

Founded in 1956, the FPÖ has a strong Nazi pedigree. Its first leader was a former SS officer and the party has never really strayed far from its roots.

“A nostalgia-fest for former SS officers.”

The annual Ulrichsberg gathering for the “reconciliation” of World War II veterans in the southern Austrian province of Carinthia was for a long time a nostalgia-fest for former SS officers and other Nazi collaborators from across Europe. In recent years a new generation of right-wing extremists have joined in, too.

The golden days of Ulrichsberg featured the charismatic but self-destructive leader of Austria’s far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ), Jörg Haider, who gave an infamous speech in 1995 praising SS veterans as “decent men of character” who “stand by their convictions even in the strongest headwinds.” To say otherwise, according to Haider, was to be “politically correct.”

Haider was killed in a car crash in 2010, but the gathering in Ulrichsberg already had been canceled the year before because one of the organizers was caught trading Nazi memorabilia on the internet (a swastika and various medals, all advertised as being “original and in excellent condition”). By 2012 it was starting to make a comeback, however, and one participant is among the most notorious figures of the German-speaking neo-Nazi scene: Gottfried Küssel was twice imprisoned in Austria for “Nazi revivalism” and his rotund body, it has to be said, is rather reminiscent of the late Hermann Göring’s.

The first time the FPÖ entered government, in 2000, it caused a major continent-wide crisis. The European Union levied sanctions on Austria. Amid international pressure, Haider ceded the chancellorship to a less controversial figure. The sanctions were lifted only after the FPÖ demonstrated that it met certain human rights standards.

But the political winds have changed dramatically since then. The FPÖ joined the ruling coalition in December 2017, after political star Sebastian Kurz revitalized Austria’s failing center-right party by diluting far-right policies to make them more palatable for the general populace. When the FPÖ came in second, a coalition with Kurz’s party seemed natural. And with far-right populist parties advancing across the continent, Europe was in no position to sanction Austria this time around.

Since December, the FPÖ’s Herbert Kickl has been Austria’s interior minister. Kickl, whose lean, grizzled face and wire-rim glasses make him look like a radical conspirator out of central casting, used to write speeches and gags for Haider. The former president of the Viennese Jewish community, Ariel Muzicant, said in 2009 that Kickl’s texts reminded him of Joseph Goebbels.

In 2016, Kickl appeared at an extreme-right congress dubbed “Defenders of Europe.” The attendees were a mix of pan-Germanist frat-boy types who work for the Freedom Party, “new right” bloggers with university degrees who call themselves “identitarians,” and editors from various German and Austrian alternative news outlets. One was a publishing company from Graz that described National Socialism (that is, Nazi ideology) as “Europe’s attempt to prove itself against international superpowers in the east and west.” Kickl gave the keynote speech and told the crowd: “I see the audience that I wish for here, better than in the parliament.”

Today, Kickl often is described as the “mastermind” behind the electoral successes of the FPÖ that allowed it to enter into a coalition government with the somewhat more mainstream Christian Democratic Party of Prime Minister Kurz.

“The FPÖ has a friendship contract with Putin’s ruling United Russia party.”

As junior coalition partner, the Freedom Party now controls the defense, interior and foreign ministries. Kurz has been credited by some with besting the far right by embracing its agenda, which is a dubious proposition when talking about a party that has never really shaken off its Nazi heritage. (Hackers discovered that the party’s chairman, Johann Gudenus, who is not in the current government, once had the Facebook password “heilheil”). The party also has a friendship contract with Putin’s ruling United Russia party, which it signed two years ago when it was not in power and Putin already was the go-to guy for would-be right-wing authoritarians.

In March this year, a police unit headed by a Freedom Party member raided the homes of four staffers and an office of the domestic intelligence agency known as the BVT (Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz und Terrorismus Bekämpfung, i.e., Federal Bureau for the Protection of the Constitution and for Counterterrorism). The bureau deals with, among other things, right-wing extremism.

The raids were justified as part of an investigation into alleged corruption in the BVT. But this “investigation” was based on dubious “insider info”: documents that contained embarrassing tales of sex parties and cliquishness but hardly any legally relevant information about actual operations of the BVT. The material, supposedly written by a BVT employee, was first offered around to the press in Vienna a year ago, but no one was interested—until Kickl took over the interior ministry. Since he took over, he has appeared intent on discrediting the BVT and replacing its leadership with people loyal to the FPÖ.

Peter Gridling, known as the stubborn but politically colorless head of the BVT for the last 10 years, was fired several days after the raids. He had been the object of a virulent campaign by the website unzensuriert.at (known as “the Austrian Breitbart”). The former editor in chief of unzensuriert.at is now Kickl’s communications director.

Gridling, along with intelligence chiefs Calvar in France and Maasen in Germany, warned in 2016 about a “dramatic rise” in right-wing extremist crime. Sibylle Geissler, who directed the BVT’s operation watching right-wing extremism, wrote a report about unzensuriert.at and the 2016 “Defend Europe” conference mentioned earlier.

Geissler reported that the Defend Europe congress is a “networking for the extreme right scene” and that unzensuriert.at publishes content which is “in part extremely xenophobic” and has “anti-Semitic tendencies.” She also wrote that unzensuriert.at “represents conspiratorial approaches and a pro-Russian ideology.” Apparently by mistake, Geissler’s report was made public and quoted in the media.

Some of Geissler’s files were taken in the police raids launched by Kickl this year. And last month she wrote in an email, which was leaked to the Austrian weekly magazine Falter, that she is now subject to a “witch hunt” by the interior ministry, which prevents her from continuing to do her job effectively.

The police raids were clumsy, but Kickl’s interior ministry still appears to have succeeded in obstructing the surveillance of right-wing extremism in Austria.

“No sane intelligence service in the world will continue to share information with us, apart from maybe the weather forecast.”

— Jan Krainer, from the Austrian Social Democrat opposition.

After the news went public, the German intelligence service (BfV) asked the Austrian service if the prosecutors had seized any of Germany’s shared intelligence during the raids. The German interior ministry told the German Left Party politician Andrej Hunko that if this is the case, then “there needs to be a new inquiry about how cooperation with the BVT can be continued in the future.”

Austria and Germany also trade intel via international forums like the CTG (Counter Terrorism Group). In a more recent inquiry by Hunko about the CTG, the German interior ministry confirmed that a foreign intelligence agency that passes on German intel to a third party, domestic or foreign, without Germany’s permission is a likely deal breaker, but said that one concern about ceasing cooperation was that the leak or sharing with undesirable third parties could be made worse.

Hunko tells The Daily Beast he is specifically concerned that Kickl and his people would be able to acquire intelligence about leftist activists who oppose right-wing extremism: “It is unthinkable what would happen if secret information about anti-fascist activities falls into the hands of the extreme right via Austria’s conservative-far right government.”

He adds: “The same applies for Italy, above all with the neo-fascist Salvini. I know that the German intelligence has written reports on the sea rescuers, some of whom are left-wing activists. It is a big problem, if the heirs of fascist parties and movements now control the intelligence services and can pursue these activists with this information.”

A few days after the BfV’s request in March for more information about what the police took from the intelligence agency, Christian Pilnacek, the secretary general of the Austrian Ministry of Justice, denied that any German intel was taken in the raids. But last week, Pilnacek admitted that officers took a DVD labeled “Photos Ulrichsberg 2015,” which came originally from the BfV. The disc apparently shows which people took part at the 2015 Ulrichsberg gathering in Carinthia. Pilnacek said that, from the DVD’s title, it was not clear that this was Germany’s information. And he said that the DVD has now been returned to the BVT extremism department. But of course the police under Kickl may now know details about German sources and methods they might not have known before.

In the raid, the prosecutors also took data from the “Neptune” network, which the BVT uses to communicate with other European intelligence agencies.

In light of the BVT affair, opposition parties tried unsuccessfully to pass a motion of no confidence against Kickl. “No sane intelligence service in the world will continue to share information with us, apart from maybe the weather forecast,” said Jan Krainer from the Social Democrats.

BVT boss Peter Gridling, now reinstated, told the Ö1 Morgenjournal (the morning news) on Monday that “without a doubt” cooperation with foreign intelligence has become “difficult.”

Kickl has tried to assure everyone that he still has the trust of foreign security services. His evidence: that Vienna is being considered as the location for Trump and Putin to meet. This shows, according to Kickl, that “all the talk about security and international isolation is a purely party politically motivated show.”
