Australian Intelligence Agency Reportedly Offered To Share Intel About Citizens With Spying Partners

Latest Snowden revelation


Posing a new challenge to the Abbott government, reports published in The Guardian Australia on Monday revealed that Australian intelligence agency, then known as the Defence Signals Directorate and now called the Australian Signals Directorate, offered a broader sweep of material to its partners—the U.S., UK, Canada and New Zealand. The latest revelation will pose another headache for Tony Abbott, who has been reeling under pressure from Indonesia after it was revealed that Australian intelligence agency spied on the country's president, his wife, and other senior government functionaries.
