The 5 Eyes intelligence sharing alliance… Australia’s part in the western world’s largest intelligence sharing community


Do you ever get the feeling that someone is watching you?

Imagine what it would be like if they were, and not only watching but listening, recording, analysing and teaming up with others in order to manipulate or attempt to alter your behaviour and the world you operate in… and then share it.

Allegedly with files on everyone from the President of Iran, Angela Merkel, Jane Fonda, Israel’s President and you can bet thousands more, the 5 Eyes intelligence alliance is one of the western world’s largest, yet secretive and complex intelligence sharing communities.

The 5 countries in the 5 Eyes alliance are Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the USA and Great Britain.

Here to explain the 5 Eyes network for us at The Daily is John Blaxland… Professor of International Security & Intelligence Studies – at the Strategic and Defence Studies Centre, Australian National University, Canberra.
