The President, the Head of the National Security Agency, the Department of Justice, the House and Senate Intelligence Committees, and the Judiciary, are intentionally keeping massive amounts of information about surveillance of US and other people secret from Americans.
The United States and President Barack Obama lie is busted: USA was not just busy spying on the European Union, diplomats and majority of nations, but had its surveillance apparatus on the United Nations, not harbinger of terrorism. It's an overt breach of trust and disrespect to all peoples of the world. Cyberwarfare and hatred is ignited by American invitation against itself.
Guardian editors destroyed computer hard drives containing copies of some of the secret files leaked by Edward Snowden. The decision was taken after a threat of legal action by the government that could have stopped reporting on the extent of American and British government surveillance revealed by the documents.
Verizon’s willingness to give the federal government unfettered access to its customers’ phone records is paying off handsomely for the telecommunications giant. In other words, if you are a Verizon customer, your detailed phone records secretly have been handed over — and will continue to be handed over — to NSA agents.
Americans often proclaim their nation as a symbol of freedom to the world while dismissing nations such as Cuba and China as categorically unfree. Yet objectively, they are only half right. Unfortunately, many are living in a Darwinic bliss and denial.
Britain is facing intense pressure to give a detailed explanation of the decision to detain the partner of the Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald after the White House confirmed that it was given a "heads up" before David Miranda was taken into custody for nine hours at Heathrow.
David Miranda, partner of Guardian journalist and The Santos Republic contributor Glenn Greenwald who released and reported about the NSA massive surveillance and was entrusted with Edward Snowden files, gives his first interview on nine-hour interrogation and unwarranted detention at Heathrow airport.
The NSA leaks ended the power of Obama officials to ration access. No self-respecting journalist believes what they say.
The National Security Agency offered comments on The Washington Post’s article about privacy violations. To cover up its sins, the Obama White House attempted to distort and interfere with the incriminating TRUTH from coming out by replacing the NSA’s director of compliance, John DeLong's vital quotes with some bogus "statement", i.e. lies.
The National Security Agency has broken privacy rules or overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since Congress granted the agency broad new powers in 2008, according to an internal audit and other top-secret documents.
After years of denials, the US spying agency CIA has revealed that in the 1970s it kept a file on prominent Jewish-American linguist, anti-war academic and anti-Israel critic Noam Chomsky, but the files may have illegally been destroyed.
Once Edward Snowden's use of the email service was public, it was perhaps a given that Lavabit would be targeted by the US.
