 خوف بريطاني متجدد من ‘الموت’ القادم من سوريا


رئيس المخابرات يحذر من أعمال إرهابية كبرى، مشيرا إلى أن الاف الاسلاميين المتطرفين في البلاد يعتبرون المواطنين بمثابة ‘اهداف مشروعة’.

لندن – حذر رئيس اجهزة المخابرات البريطانية الثلاثاء من ان الاف الاسلاميين المتطرفين موجودون في المملكة المتحدة وهم يعتبرون المواطنين بمثابة “اهداف مشروعة”.

وقال رئيس جهاز المخابرات الداخلية “ام آي 5″ اندرو باركر في كلمة القاها في لندن وهي الاولى منذ تسلمه مهامه في نيسان/ابريل الماضي، ان اجهزته “تواجه تهديدات اتية من جبهات لا تزال عديدة”.

واضاف نتوقع محاولة او محاولتين للقيام باعمال ارهابية كبرى في بريطانيا سنويا.

واوضح ان القاعدة والمنظمات التابعة لها تشكل باستمرار التهديد “الاكثر مباشرة والاكثرة فورية” ولكنه اعتبر ان هناك “اسبابا جيدة كي نقلق من الوضع في سوريا”.

وكانت المخابرات البريطانية أكدت في وقت سابق سوريا إلى أن سوريا هي “الوجهة المفضلة” بالنسبة للبريطانيين الراغبين بـ”الجهاد”، مشيرة إلى أن المئات منهم سافروا إلى سوريا خلال العامين الأخيرين للقتال مع القوات الساعية للإطاحة بالرئيس بشار الاسد.

وقال باركر إن هناك نسبة كبيرة من الدعاوى القضائية ضد إسلاميين بريطانيين يشاركون في القتال بسوريا أو يستعدون إلى السفر إليها من أجل ذلك.

ودافع عن اللجوء الى عمليات الاستماع من اجل التصدي لهذا التهديد رافضا الادعاءات بالتجسس من كل صوب التي تتهم وكالة المخابرات الالكترونية البريطانية المكلفة خصوصا عمليات الاستماع، القيام بها.

وقال ايضا “بعيدا عن التفتيش في كل زوايا الحياة الخاصة، يقتصرعملنا على الذين يشكلون تهديدا” مضيفا ان هناك حواجز لحماية المواطنين.

وانتقد ايضا التسريبات في الصحف التي تكشف عن الوسائل التي تستخدمها وكالة المخابرات الالكترونية البريطانية في مجال الاستماع الالكتروني مشيرا الى انها تسبب “خسائر جسيمة” وتقدم “خدمة للارهابيين”.

                                                                                                 قال باركير إن الصراع المستمر في سوريا دفع بالعديد من البريطانيين للسفر والمشاركة في القتال الدائر هناك

قال مدير جهاز الأمن الداخلي البريطاني (MI5) اندرو باركير إن الآف من المتشددين الاسلاميين في بريطانيا يرون الشعب البريطاني كهدف مناسب لتنفيذ عملياتهم.
وتناول باركير في أول خطاب له منذ توليه منصبه في ابريل /نيسان الماضي آخر المستجدات الأمنية في موضوع الأمن في بريطانيا.

وأضاف باركير إن "القاعدة وحلفاءها في جنوب آسيا وشبه الجزيرة العربية يشكلون تهديداً مباشراً لأمن بريطانيا".

وألقى باركير كلمته مساء الثلاثاء في المعهد الملكي للخدمات المتحدة (روسي)، المختص في قضايا الأمن والدفاع، في لندن.
صراع مستمر

وقال باركير في كلمته إنه بالرغم من "الاستثمارات الضخمة التي رصدت في السنوات الأخيرة، إلا أن الحقيقة تكمن بأننا ركزنا على قضايا منفردة ومحدودة في وقت واحد".

وأشار إلى أن "الخطر الأكبر يكمن في أولئك العناصر المنتمين إلى القاعدة الذين نجحوا في تهريب متفجرات على متن الطائرات رغم جميع الاحتياطات الأمنية المتبعة في السنوات الأربع الأخيرة".

واوضح باركير أن الصراع المستمر في سوريا دفع بالعديد من البريطانيين إلى السفر والمشاركة في القتال الدائر هناك.

وأردف رئيس جهاز الأمن الداخلي البريطاني أن "المجموعات السنية الأصولية في سوريا تخطط لإعتداءات على الدول الغربية".
توقيف في المطارات

وقال باركير إن "حوالي 330 شخصاً أدينوا بتهم تتعلق بالإرهاب في بريطانيا بين 11 ايلول/سبتمبر و31 آذار/مارس 2013.

واضاف أن خلال الأشهر الأولى من هذا العام، جرت 4 محاكمات متعلقة بالتخطيط لارتكاب اعمال ارهابية في البلاد.

وأوضح أن العديد من الاشخاص تم توقيفهم في المطارات كما القي القبض عليهم للاشتباه بتورطهم بأعمال ارهابية.

ويمتلك باركير خبرة تقدر بحوالي 30 عاماً في جهاز الأمن الداخلي البريطاني حيث عمل نائباً لمدير MI5.

Guardian has handed a gift to terrorists, warns MI5 chief: Left-wing papers leaks caused greatest damage to western security in history say Whitehall insiders MI5 chief Andrew Parker called papers expose a guide book for terrorists He said the coverage is a gift to housands of UK-based extremists Secret techniques of GCHQ laid bare by Guardian

By James Slack

 

The spy chief: MI5 director-general Andrew Parker has blasted the Guardians publication of Britains espionage capabilities

 

A massive cache of  stolen top-secret documents published in The Guardian has handed a ‘gift’ to terrorists, the head of MI5 warned last night.

In a blistering attack, Andrew Parker said the publication of confidential files leaked by US fugitive Edward Snowden had caused huge ‘harm’ to the capability of Britain’s intelligence services.

Security officials say the exposé amounts to a ‘guide book’, advising terrorists on the best way to avoid detection when plotting an atrocity.

In Whitehall, it is considered to have caused the greatest damage to the Western security apparatus in history. In his first public speech since taking the job earlier this year, Mr Parker said the leaks handed the ‘advantage’ to terrorists and were a ‘gift they need to evade us and strike at will’.

He said there were several thousand Islamist extremists living in the UK who ‘see the British people as a legitimate target’.

The security services were working round the clock to stop the fanatics, but MI5 was now ‘tackling threats on more fronts than ever before’.

Snowden, a former contractor for the National Security Agency, fled the US in May with thousands of classified documents about the NSA and GCHQ, which he gave to The Guardian.

The newspaper has since published tens of thousands of words on the secret techniques used by GCHQ to monitor emails, phone records and communications on the internet.

 

The first Guardian revelations came in early June, when it detailed how the NSA – which supplies intelligence to GCHQ, the organisation which gathers intelligence for MI5 and MI6 – had ‘direct access’ to the computer systems of AOL, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Paltalk, Skype, Yahoo and YouTube.

The newspaper also revealed how GCHQ has access to a network of cables carrying international phone calls and internet traffic and is processing vast amounts of ‘personal information’.

By the time his identity as the source of the leaks emerged, Snowden had fled his home in Hawaii for Hong Kong. After a week in hiding, he travelled to Moscow, where he remains out of the reach of US authorities.

In August, police detained David Miranda, the partner of Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, for nine hours at Heathrow airport. Mr Miranda had been carrying intelligence files leaked by Snowden.

At the time it emerged David Cameron had authorised the destruction of computers at The Guardian offices. Security concerns were so acute that Mr Cameron sent Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood to demand that Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger destroy the files after warning they could fall into the hands of terrorists.

Members of GCHQ supervised the smashing of laptops and hard drives at the newspaper’s offices.

Mr Parker said: ‘What we know about the terrorists, and the detail of the capabilities we use against them, together represent our margin of advantage. That margin gives us the prospect of being able to detect their plots and stop them.

‘But that margin is under attack. Reporting from GCHQ is vital to the safety of this country and its citizens.

‘GCHQ intelligence has played a vital role in stopping many of the terrorist plots that MI5 and the police have tackled in the past decade.

‘It causes enormous damage to make public the reach and limits of GCHQ techniques. Such information hands the advantage to the terrorists.

It is the gift they need to evade us and strike at will. Unfashionable as it might seem, that is why we must keep secrets secret, and why not doing so causes such harm.’

In a wide-ranging speech to the Royal United Services Institute think-tank, Mr Parker said the task of MI5 was ‘getting harder’. He pointed to the danger posed by British nationals returning from fighting in Syria.

The spy chief said there is a growing proportion of groups and individuals taking it upon themselves to commit acts of terrorism. Pictured is the 7/7 London bombings, which killed 52 civilians

 

Mr Parker said: ‘The ability of Al Qaeda to launch the centrally directed large-scale attacks of the last decade has been degraded, though not removed.

‘We have seen the threat shift more to increasing numbers of smaller-scale attacks and a growing proportion of groups and individuals taking it upon themselves to commit acts of terrorism.

It remains the case that there are several thousand Islamist extremists here who see the British people as a legitimate target. Overall, I do not believe the terrorist threat is worse now than before. But it is more diffuse. More complicated. More unpredictable.’

 

Mr Parker also warned that, in some quarters, there could be an ‘alarming degree of complacency’ that MI5 and the police could foil all attacks.

He said: ‘Terrorism, because of its nature and consequences, is the one area of crime where the expectation sometimes seems to be that the stats should be zero. Zero. Imagine applying the same target to murder in general, or major drugs trafficking. That is the stuff of “pre-crime” in the Tom Cruise movie, Minority Report.’

MI5 has attracted criticism for failing to stop individuals – including two of the July 7 bombers – who were on its radar.

But Mr Parker, who replaced Jonathan Evans as director-general of the Security Service earlier this year, said: ‘With greater resources since 7/7 we have worked very hard to identify as many as possible of the people in the country who are active in some way in support of terrorism.

‘The idea that we either can or would want to operate intensive scrutiny of thousands is fanciful. This is not East Germany, or North Korea. Knowing of an individual does not equate to knowing everything about them.’

He also made the case for more powers to monitor emails and the internet. Mr Parker said: ‘Shifts in technology can erode our capabilities.

There are choices to be made, including, for example, about how and whether communications data is retained. It is not, however, an option to disregard such shifts with an unspoken assumption that somehow security will anyway be sustained. It will not. We cannot work without tools.’

A Guardian News & Media spokesman said: ‘A huge number of people – from President Obama to the US Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper have now conceded that the Snowden revelations have prompted a debate which was both necessary and overdue.

‘The President has even set up a review panel and there have been vigorous discussions in the US Congress and throughout Europe. Such a debate is only worthwhile if it is informed. That is what journalism should do.’

 

 

 
Laid bare, how spies fight to protect Britain from attack

 

Edward Snowden became one of the world’s most wanted men in early June when he broke cover as the agent who leaked top-secret documents from the US National Security Agency.

His initial revelations detailed how the NSA harvested private information from the computer systems of companies including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Skype and YouTube using a secret US surveillance programme called Prism.

The Guardian then claimed the NSA supplied intelligence to GCHQ – accusing agents at the UK’s listening post of attempting to bypass UK law.

The British spy agency compiled 197 intelligence dossiers from the system in a single year, sidestepping the need to obtain a court order.

 

 

On June 18, the newspaper claimed UK intelligence agents hacked into the communications of politicians and senior officials from Turkey, South Africa and Russia during the G20 summit in London in 2009 – prompting a furious backlash ahead of the G8 meeting in Moscow.

Snowden also revealed how GCHQ was able to hoover up vast amounts of personal information, including websites visited, emails sent and received, text messages, calls and passwords, using a state-of-the-art programme called Tempora.

The surveillance operation centres on using probes to access a network of fibre-optic cables coming into and out of the country. Telecoms firms allegedly involved in Tempora include BT, Verizon and Vodafone Cable.

The Guardian then revealed that the NSA was providing millions of pounds of funding each year to GCHQ to allow it to trawl for personal data. One document leaked by Snowden and dating from 2010 suggested GCHQ must ‘pull its weight’ to meet the NSA’s ‘minimum expectations’.

Snowden also made the highly damaging revelation that the US government had hacked computers in mainland China and Hong Kong for years – threatening to consign relations between the  super-powers to the deep freeze.

US intelligence chiefs responded to the leaks with fury. NSA director Keith Alexander told the US Senate the top-secret surveillance programmes had disrupted at least 50 terror plots.

The Washington Post reported the NSA had acted illegally on ‘thousands’ of occasions over the harvesting of personal data, and Foreign Secretary William Hague was forced to the Commons to insist any suggestion the British intelligence agencies had colluded with the NSA to act outside the law was ‘fantastical’.
