Nations spy on each other 24/7 but listening to the disinformation bandied about in the three debates, it seems the US is portrayed as Lilly white and perfect while the Russians are cast as nefarious players all too ready to game the election for Trump by means of hacking, something rather questionable given the fact we do the same to Russia but Russia, being a mafia state, never divulges anything when the US does the deed when it negatively impacts Russia, particularly on the political side of things. As often stated in BRT, this piece is not about Hillary and the Donald but rather about the 5 Eyes, Australia, the US, England, New Zealand and Canada an alliance founded after WWII, that spies on the world 24/7.
In the late 1990s, the existence of ECHELON was disclosed to the public, triggering a major debate in the European Parliament and, to a lesser extent, the United States Congress. As part of efforts in the ongoing War on Terror since 2001, the FVEY further expanded their surveillance capabilities, with much emphasis placed on monitoring the World Wide Web. The former NSA contractor Edward Snowden described the Five Eyes as a "supra-national intelligence organisation that doesn't answer to the known laws of its own countries". Documents leaked by Snowden in 2013 revealed that the FVEY have been spying on one another's citizens and sharing the collected information with each other in order to circumvent restrictive domestic regulations on surveillance of citizens.
