Over the last several days, we’ve watched in awe as everything we’ve tried to warn the public about for 4 years now has finally come to light: Big Brother is alive and well in 21st Century America. Friends and family from all around the country have been calling us and emailing us, expressing their shock and outrage at the recent revelations that pretty much everything Americans do online and on their smartphones is being watched, recorded, filed, categorized, shuffled through, databased, and analyzed by the National Security Agency (in partnership with private security firms and contractors).
Also being presented to the forefront of this issue (and almost even more so than the leaks themselves) is the man who self-proclaimed his responsibility for them a few days ago. His name is Edward Snowden. He apparently lived with his girlfriend, pole dancer extraordinaire Lindsey Mills, in their rented home in Hawaii until the middle of last month, when Snowden suddenly left for Hong Kong, telling his girlfriend that he’d be back in a few weeks, but never returning.
When the information first came out, it seemed as if he was a typical lowly employee of military contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, then the story grew to him actually working for the CIA as a “technical assistant” because of his “computer skills” and then finally as a skilled computer programmer working for the CIA. In reality, he only worked for them for three months before leaking the documents, and the info is sketchy as to who exactly he worked for, and how he came to work for the CIA when he was a “mediocre student with a GED”, whereas most people in the position he’s in (wounded army vet) are sitting in a cramped apartment right now eating tuna sandwiches and addicted to Vicodin. According to NPR:
(The Guardian article) paints a portrait of a mediocre student with a GED degree who joined the Army in 2003, but was discharged after breaking his legs in a training accident. Snowden says he later wound up working with the CIA and then a contractor because he’s skilled at computer programming.
First of all, he admits to “no special skills”, in the same one interview that keeps being replayed over and over by both the mainstream and alternative media, and questions have been raised as to why he would choose Hong Kong to choose asylum (as Hong Kong has a very strong extradition treaty with the U.S.) as opposed to Russia, which has flat-out offered it to him on a silver platter. He has since gone missing after leaving his Hong Kong hotel on Sunday.
“People who think I made a mistake in picking Hong Kong as a location misunderstand my intentions. I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality,” Snowden told the paper.
Apparently, we’re not the only ones asking questions about Mr. Snowden. The Activist Post recently questioned the leaks, asking if the CIA may have released the documents themselves.
“Let’s see. Who’s coming to work for us here at NSA today? Oh, new whiz kid. Ed Snowden. Outside contractor. He’s not really a full-time employee of the NSA. Twenty-nine years old. No high school diploma. Has a GED. He worked for the CIA and quit. Hmm. Why did he quit? Oh, never mind, who cares? No problem.
“Tell you what. Let’s give this kid access to our most sensitive data. Sure. Why not? Everything. That stuff we keep behind 986 walls? Where you have to pledge the life of your first-born against the possibility you’ll go rogue? Let Snowden see it all. Sure. What the hell. I’m feeling charitable. He seems like a nice kid.”
We would take it one step further and ask if this Edward Snowden personality is just that – a “personality” custom-made for the agency to “make an example out of a whistleblower” on the surface, when in reality he’s in on the whole thing and is never really in danger. Even USA Today is asking about the possibility that this leak really isn’t as big as it seems, and that maybe Snowden wasn’t even trying to hurt the intelligence community but rather, just “trying to get a message out”:
Jason Mical, vice president at AccessData Group, says there could any number of reasons why Snowden only disclosed PowerPoint slides. “For example, perhaps he was only interested in exposing enough information to get the message out and was not interested in releasing information that would more directly expose this nation and its intel community to risk,” Mical observes.
This would explain why he isn’t running to Russia or Australia for asylum, and a situation like this also keeps full spectrum dominance in the hands of the NSA, CIA, and DHS and further alienates and strikes fear into the hearts of the true whistleblowers everywhere. Not to mention how bad it makes us look to the rest of the world: Even in Europe, let’s just say they are all very eager to hear an explanation for this program.
Are we saying that Mr. Snowden’s information is inaccurate? No. What we’re saying is that leaks are becoming more and more of an “inside job”: either someone from a foreign nation hacks into a database and steals the data, or an insider with shady connections leaks the information.
Bradley Manning, in our most humble of opinions, was the last true whistleblower: He actually put himself in physical danger and gave the world gold when it came to showing what our military was doing in the Middle East, and he is still being treated as “treasonous” by most of the mainstream media ; However, you have a nerdy computer guy who worked for the CIA for 3 whole months who came out with these power point presentations about programs that have been in place since 2007, and the pundits want to treat him like he’s the Belle of the Ball? What’s going on here?
According to The Hill:
Raw intelligence gathered by NSA under the PRISM program currently accounts for one in seven intelligence reports, according to the Post.
Reports also surfaced Thursday that NSA and FBI reportedly received secret approval in April to track phone calls on U.S. cell carrier Verizon for a three-month period, ending in July….
The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday said senators were informed of the administration’s sweeping surveillance practices, which they said have been going on since 2007.
Those programs were conducted under the authority granted by the Patriot Act and the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004.
We have already noticed people censoring themselves, not just on the radio but in everyday conversations. This is only 2 weeks into this new broad-spectrum awareness of Big Brother in the mass consciousness, and people are already freaking out. This is exactly what agencies like the MOSSAD, MI-6, FBI, NSA, CIA, DHS, and all their private security firms want: A populace policing themselves out of fear that they’ll be the next Julian Assange, or Edward Snowden, or whoever else they “persecute” ; It’s just like false flag terrorism: whether the victimization is fake or real, the effect on the populace and the people policing them is exactly the same if the people can be convinced that fiction is reality, and that reality is fiction.
“I came in with a healthy skepticism about these programs,’ he said according to multiple reports. ‘My team evaluated them. We scrubbed them thoroughly–we actually expanded some of the oversight, increased some of the safeguards. But my assessment and my team’s assessment was that they help us prevent terrorist attacks. You can’t have 100 per cent security and also then have 100 per cent privacy and zero inconvenience. We’re going have to make some choices as a society.”
“Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
– Benjamin Franklin, on why we don’t need PRISM
Of course, tyranny is alive and well in the United States, and yes, Obama is a huge part of it. But we are seeing the same people who applauded former President Bush’s NSA spying programs suddenly coming out against them simply because a Democrat is president. And of course, the same people applauding PRISM will probably denounce it under it’s new name when a Republican gets elected again. These programs don’t just bloom overnight, they are built over time. And an even bigger surveillance state is probably being formulated right now under our noses, only for us to find out about it 10 years from now.
“Culture is like being taken in a craps game: If you play long enough, you realize you’re getting screwed! And if you die shortly into the game, the thought never even crosses your mind….There is a saying inside bars in Minnesota: ‘If you get too soon old…and too late, smart…’. Well, turns out, we’re getting smart earlier and earlier.”
