This is an amazing, MUST READ, exclusive article published in the Independent on Saturday. Check it out!
The Independent article cites Edward Snowden as the source of this latest revelation. Meanwhile, on his Twitter micro-blog Snowden says:
The paper of Robert Fisk is damaging its reputation with flat-out lies. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/exclusive-uks-secret-mideast-internet-surveillance-base-is-revealed-in-edward-snowden-leaks-8781082.html … I never revealed this information at all.
