US Begged UK To Cover Up Snowden Bombshell Revelations

A new book to be published Thursday reveals how the US National Security Agency begged its British counterpart to block the Guardian from publishing his 2013 bombshell revelations, but were rebuffed.

Government Communications Headquarters rejected the request because they refused to act as the US agency’s censor, leading to a breakdown in the “special relationship” between the transatlantic allies.

The Secret History of Five Eyes (FVEY) goes on to reveal how the other members of the intelligence alliance – Canada, Australia and New Zealand – were outraged at discovering US outsourcing gave top-level clearance to 1.5 million Americans.
