What are the Intelligence capabilities of the EU? who does the EU spy on. All states have spooks, the EU sees itself as and has taken for itself the trimmings of Statehood, even if it pretends otherwise. So who are the EU´s spooks, where is and what does the EU deep state do?
Daniel Ganser´s, Gladio Europes stay behind armies seems like an interesting starting point,
but further, the report of surveillance by Duncan Campbell in 2001 is also worthy of some consideration.
In 1988, Duncan revealed in the New Statesman the existence of ECHELON, an extension of the UKUSA Agreement on global signals intelligence [Sigint]. The story, 'Somebody's listening,' detailed how the eavesdropping operations were not only being employed in the interests of 'national security,' but were regularly abused for corporate espionage in the service of US business interests.
The piece passed largely unnoticed outside of journalism circles. Then in 1996, New Zealand reporter, Nicky Hager, published 'Secret Power,' a thorough investigation of New Zealand's role in signals intelligence. In 1998 and 1999 respectively, the European Parliament/ Science and Technology Option Assessment [STOA] published reports by Leeds Metropolitan University Lecturer, Steve Wright ('Technology of Political Control') and Campbell's 'Interception Capabilities 2000".
The report was presented to the European Parliament in 2000, who commissioned further reports the following year - 'Interpection Capabilities 2001'.
On these pages, you will find original stories and reports; we have also included press reactions and a collection of videos that examine Echelon's function in the world.

Duncan's reports on Echelon received significant attention and praise:
ECHELON press referencing Duncan:
I woke up this morning with this question
Is there intelligence in the EU?
Searching for intelligence in the EU. Brexit and common intelligence and defence. Is it all NATO?
Neil Newman was feeling disgusted.
Once Article 50 is signed, it is ***IMPOSSIBLE*** without the unanimous agreement of the rest of the EU for there to be a "Meaningful vote" in Parliament, my dear Peers.
therefore, to protect the rights of the EU citizens here it MUST be in the Bill itself.
Therefore the Govt and Davis Davis are LYING to you.
and you Labour Party are knowingly breaking your word to the Public.
