"Whistleblower Edward Snowden was taken for a ride by con artists in the service of the US and UK intelligence agencies. Under the cover of “independent journalism”, the scammers conned him out of his trove of secret NSA files, hustled him from Hong Kong ahead of legislature-sponsored public hearings on cyber-espionage, and unceremoniously dumped him, minus documents, in a transit lounge at Moscow Airport. This report shows how the American and British spymasters retrieved the top-secret files by luring the fugitive into a well-laid trap, while the mass media went along with the deception to aid the authorities in evading public calls to abolish the global surveillance state.
In a nutshell the Snowden case was used by the British military intelligence in partnership with a CIA faction opposed to the heavy-handed Pentagon-NSA eavesdropping programs that threaten to knock over sensitive operations, for instance, joint operations with Qatar and Saudi intelligence to direct Al Qaeda units in Libya, Syria and Afghanistan. Since assassination targets could include American, British and other allied European officers who know too much, the Agency prefers to operate without its communications with field agents and MK-ULTRA types being monitored by lads like Snowden or any of the many generals who have a grudge against the CIA. As for disclosures on snooping, the public be damned.
[As always, Mr. Shimatsu, former editor of Japan Times, has come through with a very unique perspective on the NSA/Snowden spy game, tying it all together with his expansive knowledge of the elitist conspiracy to conquer the planet. As so many writers have speculated, all that we are seeing is the tip of the iceberg, never to glimpse the body of the evidence which would validate the concept of Big Brother in our lives. Mr. Snowden has had an unusual opportunity to leak helpful, valid evidence which would prove the existence of the American Police State as a fact, NOW. Instead, he played himself right into the hands of the Zionist press with Greenwald, without even providing for his own insurance or leaking anything lethal enough to paralyse the Obama police state. All in all, the only thing he accomplished was to piss-off America's subordinates.] -- The Silencing and Robbing of Edward Snowden, Or, America’s Occult Journey Into the Dark Ages
The linked article immediately above also sheds light on the sordid history of Glenn Greenwald (and other "helpers"), and basically confirms (along with extensive Jewish media coverage) the coopting of Snowden if not an outright contrivance from the very beginning. Thus is the state of today's whoreporate pre$$. Proof of it comes from their own articles informing us that Snowden gave his cache of documents to a small group of journalists at the Guardian, the Washington Post, and The New York Times, and that thus far the Guardian has published only 1 percent of the data trove despite the extensive interviews. They are supposed to be the lead leakers on this thing!
"I am not trying to bring down the NSA, I am working to improve the NSA," he told The Washington Post. "I am still working for the NSA right now. They are the only ones who don't realize it."
From Snowden's own lips.
Mission accomplished, huh?
Stretch Goals – Our Manufactured Hero’s Marketing Doublespeak Reveals the Psyop’s Objective …. Think of how the “1.7 million” files that Snowden supposedly took could change our perception of a government spying on it’s people. Why isn’t Greenwald releasing files about how the government records your private intimate conversations? Why isn’t he releasing files on how big banking colluded with big government to undermine the economy? How about turning over all those nude “selfies” they had to have intercepted between naughty children during their less than legal years? You know they have them. So why not bring that up? Why not show how the NSA with the full cooperation of these mega-companies, collected data on various politicians and business leaders to use as blackmail? How they frame various dissidents to this very day with fake evidence supposedly collected in this manner?
Does not the praise convince you of the truth?

"Lawmakers suggest earlier Snowden-Russia link; Question attempt to rein in spying" by Eric Schmitt | New York Times, January 20, 2014
WASHINGTON — The heads of the House and Senate intelligence committees suggested Sunday that Edward J. Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor, may have been working for Russian spy services while he was employed at an agency facility last year and before he disclosed classified government documents.
The lawmakers, Representative Mike Rogers, Republican of Michigan, and Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, offered no specific evidence that Snowden cooperated with Moscow, but they said the fact that he has ended up in Russia raises significant questions….
Feinstein and Rogers appeared Sunday on NBC’s ‘‘Meet the Press.’’ Rogers also appeared on CNN’s ‘‘State of the Union’’ and CBS’s ‘‘Face the Nation.’’
I'm so glad I never watch those shit shows.
In their interviews, the lawmakers also said that a chief element of President Obama’s attempt to overhaul US surveillance probably will not work.
Obama said Friday that he wants bulk phone data stored outside the government to reduce the risk that the records will be abused. The president said he will require a special judge’s advance approval before intelligence agencies can examine someone’s data and will force analysts to keep their searches closer to suspected terrorists or organizations.
‘‘And I think that’s a very difficult thing,’’ said Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee. ‘‘Because the whole purpose of this program is to provide instantaneous information to be able to disrupt any plot that may be taking place.’’
Under the surveillance program, the NSA gathers phone numbers called and the length of conversations, but not the content of the calls.
That's a lie, but it is expected now.
Obama said the NSA sometimes needs to tap those records to find people linked to suspected terrorists. But he said eventually the bulk data should be stored somewhere out of the government’s hands.
That could mean finding a way for phone companies to store the records, though some companies have balked at the idea, or it could mean creating a third-party entity to hold the records.
Feinstein said many Americans don’t understand that threats persist a dozen years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. ‘‘New bombs are being devised. New terrorists are emerging, new groups. Actually, a new level of viciousness. And I think we need to be prepared,’’ she said.
You have BEEN FOREWARNED of a COMING FALSE FLAG, Americans!
Government to Give Americans False Flag as Christmas Present
Hagel Says Nuke One For the Gipper
Then ALL the MONEY, ALL the WAR, and ALL the SURVEILLANCE was a BIG WASTE and DIDN'T WORK, huh?
Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said Obama had intensified a sense of uncertainty about the country’s ability to root out terrorist threats….
‘‘We really did need a decision on Friday, and what we got was lots of uncertainty,’’ Rogers said. ‘‘And just in my conversations over the weekend with intelligence officials, this new level of uncertainty is already having a bit of an impact on our ability to protect Americans by finding terrorists who are trying to reach into the United States.’’
So WHEN is the FALSE FLAG ATTACK, Mike?
In his comments on Snowden’s possible ties to Russian spy agencies, Rogers referred to a recent classified report by the Defense Intelligence Agency that he has described in other interviews as concluding Snowden stole approximately 1.7 million intelligence files that concern vital operations of the US Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force. The defense intelligence report is classified, but some members of Congress have been briefed on it.
How come none of that has been reported or released by the AmeriKan jewpre$$?
“I believe there’s questions to be answered there,” Rogers said on the NBC program. “I don’t think it was a gee-whiz luck event that he ended up in Moscow under the handling of the FSB,” he said, referring to the Federal Security Service, the Russian state security organization that succeeded the KGB.
Me, neither. That's where U.S. and U.K. intelligence dumped him.
Feinstein, when asked whether she agreed with Rogers that Snowden may have had help from the Russians, was more tentative: “He may well have. We don’t know at this stage.”
Both lawmakers said their committees would continue to pursue these suspicions.
You can start in the pile of bullshit over there.
Snowden has been living in Russia since June. He has said that he did not take any secret NSA documents with him to Russia when he fled there, ensuring that Russian intelligence officials could not get access to them.
No, he handed all of them over to Greenwald and the world jewsmedia.
Ben Wizner, an American Civil Liberties Union lawyer who advises Snowden, said in a telephone interview that the accusation that Snowden had been recruited by Russian spy services before he left his NSA job in Hawaii last year was “not only false, it is silly.”
Wizner also criticized Rogers’s description of the defense agency report as “exaggerated national security claims.”
Not like we have never seen those before.
A senior official with access to the intelligence on Snowden said that U.S. suspicions had been raised in part because of changes that have taken place in information that Snowden is believed to have stored since he left the United States.
Is there anyone out there that believes AmeriKan intelligence officials as quoted by the propaganda pre$$ anymore? Anyone?
Investigators believe that data is being stored by an Internet cloud service, though it is unclear who has access to it.
Then the NSA should HAVE IT ALL!
The United States is concerned that Russian agents may have access to the data while Snowden is in the country under temporary asylum, or in exchange for his asylum.
Like the propaganda pre$$ outlets?
“Something more was going on there, and because of the nature of the information that was stolen,” Rogers said on CBS, adding that it had “nothing to do with Americans’ privacy, a lot to do with our operations overseas.”
I'm sorry, folks, but I can no longer read this rank rot.
UPDATE: Snowden denies he was a spy for Russia
Did not make my printed paper.
Related: US unmoved by Snowden’s claim to clemency
He thought they would be? Then he really is an idiot.
"Representative Adam Schiff, Democrat of California, said it struck him that Snowden spoke from “one of the foremost big brother states in the world, where he is living without any privacy, because there’s no right or expectation of privacy in Russia whatsoever."
Talk about turning the tables with the spin of propaganda! I'm in awe of the Zionist Media Machine!
There is NO EXPECTATION of it here in AmeriKa, either!
And regarding the great reporter Greenwald:
"In Israel, Greenwald reveals whose agenda he is serving
Maidhc Ó Cathail
The Passionate Attachment
January 7, 2014
When waging unconventional warfare, timing is everything.
In some pro-Israel circles, President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State John Kerry are now being hysterically compared to Neville Chamberlain for their alleged “betrayal” of the self-defined “Jewish state” to yet another imminent Holocaust as a result of Obama’s historic, albeit so far limited, rapprochement with today’s supposed equivalent of a genocidal Nazi regime in Tehran and Kerry’s sustained diplomatic effort to get Israel to return to its so-called “Auschwitz borders” prior to its premeditated 1967 Land Grab. In light of this dual “existential threat” posed by the Obama administration to a Greater Israel, the interview given to Israeli TV by Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who first published documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden that revealed the scope of U.S. spying worldwide, is as close to a “game theory warfare” smoking gun as you’re going to get.
Speaking to Israel’s Channel 10 — whose biggest shareholder, cosmetics billionaire Ronald Lauder, is President of the World Jewish Congress — Greenwald criticized “the continued imprisonment of Jonathan Pollard,” who was sentenced to life in prison in 1987 after passing more than a million highly classified documents to Israel while working as an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Navy. (Incidentally, Channel 10 owner Lauder is also a supporter of clemency for Pollard.) As reported today by Haaretz, here’s what Greenwald told his Israeli audience about the spy, who, in the words of former CIA officer Philip Giraldi, “did more damage to the United States than any spy in history”:
Greenwald agreed that the Snowden revelations are relevant to Pollard’s case. “When the U.S. government goes around the world criticizing other countries for spying on allies and prosecuting them,” he said, “are they going to maintain that with a straight face when they’re doing exactly that?”
It’s proper to raise Pollard’s case in the context of U.S. spying on its Israeli ally, he continued, because that underscores the hypocrisy of what the U.S. itself is doing. The U.S. government, Greenwald charged, does exactly what it accuses its enemies of doing, and no country has the right to say other countries shouldn’t do something while it is secretly violating that very same taboo.While some may be willing to concede that Greenwald’s charge of U.S. government hypocrisy is perfectly valid, the acclaimed “independent” journalist’s remarks that American national security does not require surveillance of its so-called “ally” in Tel Aviv is at best naïve, at worst disingenuous:
Asked about the U.S. government’s claim that the purpose of the eavesdropping is to fight terrorism, he responded by citing the documents’ revelations that the NSA eavesdropped on both German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Israeli officials, asking, Does the U.S. government think Angela Merkel is a terrorist? Or that democratically elected Israeli officials are involved in terror?Although many Greeks and other Europeans may justifiably view Chancellor Merkel’s austerity measures as a form of economic terrorism, could Greenwald seriously be oblivious to Israel’s long track record of terrorism, not only its state terrorism against the indigenous Palestinians and their neighbours but its less widely-known, albeit acknowledged, false flag terror attacks on its American benefactor and imperial proxy?
Given the account of the “Five Dancing Shlomos” caught celebrating in Liberty Park, New Jersey as the twin towers burned on Sept. 11, 2001, as well as much other well-documented evidence pointing toward Israeli complicity in the 9/11 attacks — used with alacrity by Israel loyalists such as Joe Lieberman as a pretext to strip Americans of much of their constitutional rights while others such as Michael Chertoff profited from the hyped “need” for greater “security” in the post-9/11 “Homeland” — what kind of journalist genuinely concerned about civil liberties would deny that monitoring the conversations of a “spook, terrorist or criminal” such as Netanyahu, a harsh critic of NSA spying who infamously admitted that 9/11 as “very good” for Israel, is an essential requirement of any genuine fight against terrorism?
Like that other much-adored Jewish “critic of Israel” Noam Chomsky, Glenn Greenwald would appear to be just the latest branded anti-imperial “hero” serving to provide cover for a less transparent Israeli agenda.

Another tell is the amount of attention it has gotten within the pages of my pre$$. I guess sometimes you can serve two masters, but not three (American people left out).
Also see: NSA spied on United Nations
Obummer tells me that is going to stop. He's talking to the tech people and with his "advisory committee" -- meets with Globe approval -- that is suggesting a program to collect data on every phone call made in the United States should continue [and] is in favor of codifying and publicly announcing the steps the United States will take to protect the privacy of foreign citizens (with limits, ha!), as is the mouthpiece media. It's leaving the pillars of tyranny in place and it provides little comfort. Not like it would ever be misused or anything.
In Germany, a plan to keep messages away from NSA
Nationalizing Internet traffic nothing but a marketing gimmick and p.r. poop.
Germans may hear from Edward Snowden
No, they will not. Merkel’s government has made clear this week it won’t risk a break with the United States.
"Merkel said the relationship between Germany and the United States as well as the future of a trans-Atlantic free trade agreement have been ‘‘put to the test’’ by allegations of massive spying by the US National Security Agency — including tapping her own phone. Merkel tempered her criticism by declaring that Germany’s alliance with Washington ‘‘remains a fundamental guarantor for our freedom and our security.’’"

I think so. Can't help but think Karma at work.
Thus there is widespread acceptance, and we are no longer going to waste time with faux EU objections, 'kay?

"Notably absent from the list of countries reportedly being surveilled by the program are the staunchest US allies in Asia: Japan and South Korea."
China is taking steps to increase its security, as well as backing a United Nations proposal along with Russia to address such surveillance."
I would suggest to China that they not sign the deal with Apple, but….
The NSA admits tracking cellphones but say they didn't actually do a sweep (yeah, right), as they stand by and defend the indefensible while deflecting questions about it.
All this talk of a shift in debate and challenge to the NSA is nothing but hot air (more rare biparti$an$hip, 'eh?), and the legislation designed to rectify the problems simply codifies the agency’s rights to scoop up millions of American’s telephone records as the White House deploys the plumbers to find the leaks (no wonder it is a mouthpiece media. Did they plant that porn site on him? At least we know where the $elf-$erving cyberattacks are coming from).
"There is a national crisis of federal employees engaged in the child porn industry and a related epidemic at the state level. I’ve documented two states, Vermont and Maine, that appear to be running state protected child trafficking rings with evidence of cops, judges, lawyers, clergy and government employees covering for each other.
It's for blackmailing purposes!
And don't look to the corporate court for salvation when challenges are rejected and overruled.
"The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, a secretive US spy court, has ruled again that the National Security Agency can keep collecting every American’s telephone records every day, in the midst of dueling decisions in two civilian federal courts about whether the surveillance program is constitutional."
What jurisdiction a FOREIGN COURT has over DOMESTIC SPYING is a bit beyond me, but even the state courts aren't much help with the homing device you call a smartphone.
It's gone past the point of being Orwellian at this stage. Even the "good guys" in the fight are controlled opposition that are allowable or I would not see them in my newspaper.
It's all about bu$iness and the $urveillance $tate, folks. So go log on your Facebook or Google or Yahoo or AT&T or Ikea or whatever. The Gmail is junk, so don't bother with the app.
Ever notice that the only place spying never seems to be u$eful is here?
