Intelligence leak exposes U.S. spying on adversaries and allies

May 25, 2023

A European intelligence official worried that if Washington restricts allies’ access to future intelligence reports, it could leave them in the dark. But others were cleared to be shared with close U.S. allies, including the Five Eyes alliance of the United States, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. The fact that the United States bases its assessments on many sources is no secret. The documents reveal that U.S. intelligence agencies are also aware of internal planning by the GRU, Russia’s military intelligence agency. The official said he was also concerned that more revelations of classified military intelligence were forthcoming.
