Proudly backwards

Finally, the start of the real story:  "Greenwald on ‘coming’ leak: NSA can obtain one billion cell phone calls a day, store them and listen"

So, we get some new slides and some more 'limited hangout', a 'court approved' system with supervisors who "must endorse the analyst's "reasonable belief," defined as 51 percent confidence, that the specified target is a foreign national who is overseas at the time of collection."

Where is Snowden anyway?  We're told he is in Russia, but I see no reason to believe it.  The idea he should head to Ecuador at which point the Ecuadorian government will get around to deciding what to do with him?  Not very prudent for Snowden, particularly as the American dirty tricks and pressure on Ecuador are in full effect.

"Leak inquiry launched over ‘NYT’ story on American-Israeli cyberwar targeting Iran"  Another general in trouble for crossing World Jewry.  I'd still be careful of the Stuxnet story.

"Syria, The Faces Behind The Terror" by Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

"White Turks, Black Turks, and Negroes: The Politics of Polarization"  The bifurcation between the 'with it'/'proudly not with it' groups allows the 1% to get away with murder, and explains things like:
  1. why the Republicans still promote the craziest socially conservative programs against the wishes of sizable majorities of the American population;
  2. why the mayor of Toronto can be a crack-head;
  3. why Morsi is in charge of Egypt;
  4. why Erdoğan is in no political danger.
The riots and protests against conservatism are in the deepest urban areas, while the suburbanites - much of the countryside has been forced to move to the suburbs - and country dwellers remain defiantly and proudly backwards.

Soroscons

You might ask why the Jewish Billionaires have instructed their chattel slaves Barry/Kerry to go through the motions of another round of peace 'negotiations' that everybody knows is a complete waste of time. As usual, the Israelis even use it as an opportunity to embarrass the Americans ("Israel Approves Settlements Before Kerry Visit").  The neocons can't even be bothered to pretend any more, but the Soroscons still think there is value in reinforcing the notion that the Jews actually want peace, and are tragically stymied in their efforts by those awful war-loving, Jew-hating Palestinians:  "Lucy, Charlie Brown, and the football".  The key, as always, is to buy time with phony negotiation attempts while continuing to build 'facts on the ground'.

 "Israel / Palestine: What will Obama do?"  by Alison Weir

"Brzezinski on the Syria Crisis":
"Heilbrunn: Here we are five years into the Obama administration, and you’re stating that the West is engaging in “mass propaganda.” Is Obama being drawn into Syria because he’s too weak to resist the status quo? What happened to President Obama that brought us here?
Brzezinski: I can’t engage either in psychoanalysis or any kind of historical revisionism. He obviously has a difficult problem on his hands, and there is a mysterious aspect to all of this. Just consider the timing. In late 2011 there are outbreaks in Syria produced by a drought and abetted by two well-known autocracies in the Middle East: Qatar and Saudi Arabia. He all of a sudden announces that Assad has to go—without, apparently, any real preparation for making that happen. Then in the spring of 2012, the election year here, the CIA under General Petraeus, according to The New York Times of March 24th of this year, a very revealing article, mounts a large-scale effort to assist the Qataris and the Saudis and link them somehow with the Turks in that effort. Was this a strategic position? Why did we all of a sudden decide that Syria had to be destabilized and its government overthrown? Had it ever been explained to the American people? Then in the latter part of 2012, especially after the elections, the tide of conflict turns somewhat against the rebels. And it becomes clear that not all of those rebels are all that “democratic.” And so the whole policy begins to be reconsidered. I think these things need to be clarified so that one can have a more insightful understanding of what exactly U.S. policy was aiming at."
It is hilarious how Brzezinski pretends to be mystified by Barry's strange shifts, while he, and presumably anybody with a brain, knows that the shifts in policy are based entirely on the demands of the Jewish Billionaires.  The biggest shift was caused by the recent victory by the Syrian government at Qusair, regarded in Israel as dangerously symbolic of an Iranian win.  Some settlers ordered some Israeli generals to order some Israeli politicians to order the American Jewish Billionaires to order Barry to do a 180 on U. S. policy.  Barry thought the shift was too ridiculous and embarrassing and dangerous to real American interests even for a chattel slave, so the Jewish Billionaires temporarily (?) replaced Barry with President Ben Rhodes - whose qualifications as a failed novelist make him perfect to be the 45th American President - to do the job.

Part of the program to deter Hezbollah from further successful efforts in Syria is the threat to take the battle to Lebanon itself:  "Ahmed Al-Assir, the pawn in Lebanon".  A full civil war in Lebanon would satisfy Zionist interests - a Yinon-style break-up, allowing the Jews to steal land and water, the big current stealing obsession of World Jewry - and Gulf State interests - keeping Hezbollah preoccupied at home and not helping the Syrian government.  Of course, the human tragedy involved is of no concern to these monsters (or the monsters of the 'left').

"Dershowitz and Finkelstein: comrades at heart?"  The job of the lite Zionists like Finkelstein (and Weiss, and J Street, etc, etc) is to present the idea that Jewish violent group supremacists aren't really a monolithic land stealing, Arab murdering, group of monsters, thus buying the Jewish group collective more time for . . . land stealing and Arab murdering.  Dershowitz' job is to make Finkelstein seem more credible by playing the heavy while representing old-school Zionism. Of course, real anti-Zionists like Atzmon are marginalized as bigots and haters.  I have never seen such a transparently obvious trick.

"‘New York Times’ profile of group bent on sanctioning Iran fails to mention Israel connections" Bipartisan Coalition for American Security - 'bipartisan' means Jewish and crooked.

"4 Are Named in Scheme to Pocket Aid for Israel"  I don't know if the pattern is violent Jewish group supremacism or just plain crookedness, so lets compromise and settle on both.

"French Jewish Supremacist Fails in Bid to Cover Up Zionist Crime"  "Leading critic of French al-Dura coverage convicted"  Note that this was one of the most outrageous hasbara attempts ever, a ridiculous counter-story in the face of clear videotape evidence to the contrary - 'who are you going to believe, me or your lying eyes'.  The great thing about violent group supremacists is that the constant hasbara defeats - defeats which hurt their cause in the eyes of all moral and decent people - have no effect on the Jews.  Hasbara is directed entirely inwardly at the Jews themselves, and is actually just a form of group self-aggrandizement, a fact which is invisible to the supremacists.

"Tal Kalakh: Syria's rebel town that forged its own peace deal:  The town is back in the hands of Syria’s army but the move says more about local disillusion than military defeat"  I love the sad tone of this, and the fact that The Independent is trying to take some solace in the fact that the rebels gave up rather than be defeated by the Syrian army.

"Henry Kissinger: Balkanized Syria Best Possible Outcome"  Henry the K is reflecting the current Yinon thinking of his people, which explains why Barry was ousted and replaced by Ben Rhodes.

"Deborah Lipstadt Slams Claims Conference Leaders Over Handling of Fraud Probe"  Funny for so many reasons.

Josh Marshall is so far up Barry's ass he appears to have lost his mind.  He might want to consider what he'd be writing about Snowden if the revelations had occurred while George Bush was President.

"Snowden sought Booz Allen job to gather evidence on NSA surveillance"  This does not ring true at all.

Something like karma

"Did climate change cause the Alberta flooding?"  The world epicenter of global warming is a bit dampish.  Calgary is an oddly liberal place in a sea of hillbillies (think Austin), but somebody keeps voting in assholes like Jason Kenney.

"DOJ Guidelines: Inappropriate To Prosecute Leaking Gov't Information As 'Theft Of Gov't Property'" Their problem is he didn't commit espionage or any other crime - though simply breathing is illegal under the Patriot Act - so they had to come up with something.  He possibly breached some contractual obligation to his private-sector employer, for which Booz Allen might sue him and recover their damages in an Ecuador court.  "Insider Threat Program: Leaks to Media=Espionage"

"The Schaden Freudes Itself II"  No booze!  I detect Assange's hand in this outrage.

"Listed Terrorist Meets with Turkish Intelligence"  "Erdogan defends Yasin El Kadi"  I should note that only the Americans consider him to be a terrorist, and that is based on the problematic claim that he financed bin Laden.  "Turkish Traffic Accident with Deep Connections"  Another complicated Turkish car accident: "Susurluk car crash".

Oh oh (my emphasis in red):
"The Internal Revenue Service’s screening of groups seeking tax-exempt status was broader and lasted longer than has been previously disclosed, the new head of the agency acknowledged Monday. Terms including “Israel,” ”Progressive” and “Occupy” were used by agency workers to help pick groups for closer examination, according to an internal IRS document obtained by The Associated Press."
"The crocodile tears of Samantha Power":
"Like most Irish-Americans who have climbed the political ladder, Samantha Power is an opportunist and a hypocrite. She has built a profitable career out of posing as a human rights activist, while being happy to court human rights abusers whenever it was expedient to do so."
It is amusing, but not surprising, that the only thing the NSA's Panopticon doesn't cover is terrorism: "U.S. Surveillance Is Not Aimed at Terrorists". It necessarily follows that stopping terrorism isn't the point of all the snooping.

"Is PRISM just a not-so-secret web tool?"  I still think PRISM is the 'limited hangout' to deflect attention from the bigger program.  By the way, the missing powerpoint slides?  Still missing.  Glen Greenwald doesn't get to wear the full halo until we get to see them.  To be fair to Greenwald, he has the choicest detractors, and showing the missing slides might actually cross into committing a real crime under American law, such as it is:

"Understanding the Prism leaks is understanding the rise of a new fascism" by John Pilger:
"Snowden’s revelation that Washington has used Google, Facebook, Apple and other giants of consumer technology to spy on almost everyone is further evidence of a modern form of fascism. Having nurtured oldfashioned fascists around the world – from Latin America to Africa and Indonesia – the genie has risen at home. Understanding this is as important as understanding the criminal abuse of technology.

Fred Branfman, who exposed the “secret” destruction of tiny Laos by the US air force in the 1960s and 1970s, provides an answer to those who still wonder how a liberal African-American president, a professor of constitutional law, can command such lawlessness. “Under Mr Obama, America is still far from being a classic police-state . . .” he wrote. “But no president has done more to create the infrastructure for a possible future police state.” Why? Because Obama understands that his role is not to indulge those who voted for him but to expand “the most powerful institution in the history of the world, one that has killed, wounded or made homeless well over 20 million human beings, mostly civilians, since 1962”.

In the new American cyberpower, only the revolving doors have changed. The director of Google Ideas, Jared Cohen, was an adviser to Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state in the Bush administration who lied that Saddam Hussein could attack the US with nuclear weapons. Cohen and Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt – they met in the ruins of Iraq – have co-authored a book, The New Digital Age, endorsed as visionary by the former CIA director Michael Hayden and the war criminals Henry Kissinger and Tony Blair. The authors make no mention of the Prism spying programme, revealed by Snowden, that provides the NSA with access to all of us who use Google.

Control and dominance are the two words that make sense of this. These are exercised by political, economic and military design, of which mass surveillance is an essential part, but also by insinuating propaganda into the public consciousness."

It is not. This is a monumental lie - and Obama is complicit."


"The NSA's metastasised intelligence-industrial complex is ripe for abuse" by (ha!) Valerie Plame Wilson and Joe Wilson.  Note that they state that "there are no J Edgar Hoover-like 'enemy lists' … yet", almost certainly not true generally, and certainly not true for Muslims.

"Snowden and Ecuador":
"1) We're about to find out just how sensitive the information Snowden is carrying might be. Because you can be darned sure that by now the U.S Government has a very good idea of exactly what Snowden knows, what he's downloaded etc and if it's really enough to bring down the whole edifice, he's not going to reach Ecuador. However, if the documents held by Edwards are less than State-threatening, he'll make it ok.
2) Therefore, if you happen to be reading this and have a place ticket booked for the Moscow/Habana run in the next 24 hours, you may want to consider deferring that flight for a couple of days. Either that or checking that all your insurance papers are in good order. Don't forget to kiss the kids before you leave, either."

Everything is starting to come together

Various disparate conspiracies are converging.

"REPORTS: Hours Before His Death, Michael Hastings Sent This Email Saying He Was Being Investigated By The FBI"  The message (my emphasis in red):
"Hey [words blurred out] — the Feds are interviewing my "close friends and associates." Perhaps if the authorities arrive "BuzzFeed GQ", er HQ, may be wise to immediately request legal counsel before any conversations or interviews about our news-gathering practices or related journalism issues.

Also: I'm onto a big story, and need to go off the [radar] for a bit.

All the best, and hope to see you all soon."

"Admit it, Michael Hastings’ Death is Weird and Scary":
"[update 3] A number of people on Twitter have told me that that among Hastings’ current projects was a piece on Barrett Brown, who is currently in jail awaiting trial for his role as a spokesperson for Anonymous. Hastings was a very strong advocate of Brown, as the tweets Gallagher has helpfully provided in the comment thread show. According to Gallagher, he had spoken to Hastings on June 3 to arrange a jail visit."

"Barrett Brown and Michael Hastings v. FBI"  "Why the Hacks Hate Michael Hastings" by Barrett Brown

"Why Is Barrett Brown Facing 100 Years in Prison?":
"It’s obvious by looking at the most recent posts on Barrett Brown’s blog that while he is highly interested in Stratfor, it wasn’t the credit card information that motivated him. When those five million emails leaked, a product called TrapWire, which was created by a company called Abraxas, was revealed to the public at large. And it caused a media shitstorm. In 2005, the founder of Abraxas and former head of the CIA’s European division, Richard Helms, described TrapWire as software that is installed inside of surveillance camera systems that is, “more accurate than facial recognition” with the ability to “draw patterns, and do threat assessments of areas that may be under observation from terrorists.” As Russia Today reported, one of the leaked emails, allegedly written by Stratfor’s VP of Intelligence, Fred Burton, stated that TrapWire was at “high-value targets” in “the UK, Canada, Vegas, Los Angeles, NYC.”

Now, the TrapWire software has largely been dismissed as, nothing to “freak out” over and that hopefully is the case. However, far beyond what the surveillance software itself can or can’t do, the revelation that TrapWire exists has caused a chain reaction of discoveries that have seemingly revealed a mob of very powerful cybersecurity firms.

Barrett Brown was doing some very serious investigating into a company called Cubic from San Diego, that was alleged to own TrapWire as a subsidiary of their firm. This is an allegation that they officially denied. However, these tax filings from 2010 that Barrett uncovered clearly state that Cubic had in fact merged with Abraxas Corporation. If you click through and take a look, you can see that Richard Helms’s name is right there on the top of the first page.

Alongside Abraxas and Cubic on those tax filings is another company called Ntrepid. According to Florida State’s records of corporations, Richard Helms is the director of that company. In 2011, Barrett’s work helped lead the Guardian to their report that Ntrepid won a $2.76 million-dollar contract from Centcom (U.S. Central Command), to create “online persona management” software, also known as “sockpuppetry.” To break it down in plain English, online persona management was created to populate social networks with a bunch of fake and believable social media personas to “influence internet conversations and spread pro-American propaganda.”

Ntrepid also has a product they call Tartan, that’s detailed in this internal presentation hosted by the Wall Street Journal. In Ntrepid’s own parlance, they describe Tartan as a program that can “Analyze illicit organizations and less structured social networks by identifying: Ranks of influence within human networks… [and can] end the use of [online] aliases.” Clearly they are looking to dismantle the smoke and mirrors that groups like Anonymous maintain, by hanging out in chatrooms where they do not need to identify themselves officially, with many private communications happening at once. This creates a difficult to penetrate den, where people can easily hide online. Evidently, Ntrepid is seeking to pull all of that apart with Tartan.

In another document on Ntrepid letterhead, titled “Tartan Influence Model: Anarchist Groups,” Tartan is positioned as a software tool that can help combat domestic protestors who operate in “an amorphous network of anarchist and protest groups” and suggests that these groups are prone to violence. They name Occupy Wall Street and Occupy D.C. as part of the problem, and have “built Occupy networks through online communication with anarchists.” By identifying the threat of anarchistic, supposedly violent protestors, Tartan sells its services by saying their software “identifies the hidden relationships among organizers of seemingly unrelated movements… To mitigate the ability of anarchists to incite violence… Law enforcement must identify the complex network of relationships among anarchist leaders.” So, beyond taking apart movements that exist solely online, Tartan is looking to come out and crush real world protest movements as well.

A lot of this information and the connections between it all would not be easy to figure out were it not for Barrett Brown. For one, Barrett started ProjectPM, a wiki that is completely dedicated to piecing together all of this information about surveillance companies in the United States. He even got on the phone with a representative at Cubic to tell them that their company was full of liars and that they do in fact own TrapWire. Without Barrett Brown, tons of this research would likely have gone unearthed. Besides a few journalists, not many people have been looking into this information. The one other group that does is called Telecomix, the guys who are famous for supplying dial-up internet lines to areas of the world with oppressive dictatorships, and who I interviewed about the Gaza conflict here. They operate the Bluecabinet Wiki, and they worked very closely with Barrett Brown to uncover more information about the network of cybersecurity firms.

I talked to one of the volunteers at Telecomix, who strongly believes in the work that Barrett did to connect all of these very confusing dots: “I haven't seen reporters really taking a hard look at what Barrett Brown, the investigative journalist, was researching and where it leads to. His discovery that TrapWire = Abraxas and that there is CIA involvement is very important.  Do you know in Berlin right now a game was started to destroy surveillance cameras in public places? Barrett apparently was reading through the emails of HBGary and Stratfor, linking the data to the specific surveillance companies and contractors… It is an extremely time consuming task.”"

"Shady Companies With Ties to Israel Wiretap the U.S. for the NSA" by James Bamford.  Wired is usually just a house organ of the Pentagon, and I have to wonder if this explicitness reflects the disgust in the Pentagon at this latest War For The Jews against Syria forced on Barry by the Jewish Billionaires (and announced with the President conspicuously in absentia by an obvious agent of the Jewish Billionaires, almost as if there had been some kind of coup d'état).  Also note the comically shoddy outside contractors used by the NSA!  The details of the Israeli spying (note Pollard II):
". . . the advanced analytical and data mining software the NSA had developed for both its worldwide and international eavesdropping operations was secretly passed to Israel by a mid-level employee, apparently with close connections to the country. The employee, a technical director in the Operations Directorate, “who was a very strong supporter of Israel,” said Binney, “gave, unbeknownst to us, he gave the software that we had, doing these fast rates, to the Israelis.”
Because of his position, it was something Binney should have been alerted to, but wasn’t.
“In addition to being the technical director,” he said, “I was the chair of the TAP, it’s the Technical Advisory Panel, the foreign relations council. We’re supposed to know what all these foreign countries, technically what they’re doing…. They didn’t do this that way, it was under the table.” After discovering the secret transfer of the technology, Binney argued that the agency simply pass it to them officially, and in that way get something in return, such as access to communications terminals. “So we gave it to them for switches,” he said. “For access.”
But Binney now suspects that Israeli intelligence in turn passed the technology on to Israeli companies who operate in countries around the world, including the U.S. In return, the companies could act as extensions of Israeli intelligence and pass critical military, economic and diplomatic information back to them. “And then five years later, four or five years later, you see a Narus device,” he said. “I think there’s a connection there, we don’t know for sure.”
Narus was formed in Israel in November 1997 by six Israelis with much of its money coming from Walden Israel, an Israeli venture capital company. Its founder and former chairman, Ori Cohen, once told Israel’s Fortune Magazine that his partners have done technology work for Israeli intelligence. And among the five founders was Stanislav Khirman, a husky, bearded Russian who had previously worked for Elta Systems, Inc. A division of Israel Aerospace Industries, Ltd., Elta specializes in developing advanced eavesdropping systems for Israeli defense and intelligence organizations. At Narus, Khirman became the chief technology officer.
A few years ago, Narus boasted that it is “known for its ability to capture and collect data from the largest networks around the world.” The company says its equipment is capable of “providing unparalleled monitoring and intercept capabilities to service providers and government organizations around the world” and that “Anything that comes through [an Internet protocol network], we can record. We can reconstruct all of their e-mails, along with attachments, see what Web pages they clicked on, we can reconstruct their [Voice over Internet Protocol] calls.”
Like Narus, Verint was founded by in Israel by Israelis, including Jacob “Kobi” Alexander, a former Israeli intelligence officer. Some 800 employees work for Verint, including 350 who are based in Israel, primarily working in research and development and operations, according to the Jerusalem Post. Among its products is STAR-GATE, which according to the company’s sales literature, lets “service providers … access communications on virtually any type of network, retain communication data for as long as required, and query and deliver content and data …” and was “[d]esigned to manage vast numbers of targets, concurrent sessions, call data records, and communications.”
In a rare and candid admission to Forbes, Retired Brig. Gen. Hanan Gefen, a former commander of the highly secret Unit 8200, Israel’s NSA, noted his former organization’s influence on Comverse, which owns Verint, as well as other Israeli companies that dominate the U.S. eavesdropping and surveillance market. “Take NICE, Comverse and Check Point for example, three of the largest high-tech companies, which were all directly influenced by 8200 technology,” said Gefen. “Check Point was founded by Unit alumni. Comverse’s main product, the Logger, is based on the Unit’s technology.”
According to a former chief of Unit 8200, both the veterans of the group and much of the high-tech intelligence equipment they developed are now employed in high-tech firms around the world. “Cautious estimates indicate that in the past few years,” he told a reporter for the Israeli newspaper Ha’artez in 2000, “Unit 8200 veterans have set up some 30 to 40 high-tech companies, including 5 to 10 that were floated on Wall Street.” Referred to only as “Brigadier General B,” he added, “This correlation between serving in the intelligence Unit 8200 and starting successful high-tech companies is not coincidental: Many of the technologies in use around the world and developed in Israel were originally military technologies and were developed and improved by Unit veterans.”
Equally troubling is the issue of corruption. Kobi Alexander, the founder and former chairman of Verint, is now a fugitive, wanted by the FBI on nearly three dozen charges of fraud, theft, lying, bribery, money laundering and other crimes. And two of his top associates at Comverse, Chief Financial Officer David Kreinberg and former General Counsel William F. Sorin, were also indicted in the scheme and later pleaded guilty, with both serving time in prison and paying millions of dollars in fines and penalties."

"A Discussion With Cryptome" (my emphasis in red):
"Gawker: Do you think Snowden is a hero?
Young: Yeah, in so far as you want to play up that word. I think that he's quite courageous to do what he's doing. I'm not convinced that he's operating as an individual but he certainly gives all the appearance of being a hero. So I think until proved otherwise, you can look at it that way.
But I think he's playing a teasing game too, because he's not so dumb as to dump everything in one place. That's suicide because he knows he gets screwed if he does that. The recipients would screw him in their own defense. I think that it's worth seeing what they do next, because usually these things have steps. They're testing the market right now: Will he get public support by releasing more? Under what circumstances? Who will we give it to? Is this guy going to be badly burned?
The military calls this being a rabbit: he's being set up to draw fire and see what happens. And if someone takes a potshot at him, you watch who does. It's risky behavior, but it's a good way to smoke out the opposition.
Gawker: In a post on Cryptome, you suggested the leak was a "wargame". Do you think that this might be an elaborate government test?
Young: Well, it will certainly be used for that purpose. They're certainly watching the response to this. They not only run their own games, they watch other people's games. Some are fortuitous like this. Some are deliberate.
Natsios: I like this notion of the spontaneously combusting war games scenario. It's not top-down driven, it's just erupts and you study it as a phenomenon and information emerges that wouldn't otherwise in the carefully scripted modeling scenario."

Modern cars are very good at not catching fire in accidents.

Google's position is that it has these wonderful algorithms that kick out search results on a purely objective basis.

"Google and google searches: Jerusalem"

"Google and Jerusalem"

"Google and Wikipedia: "Google isn't getting it all from Wiki""

And yet, we know they are messing with the search results:  "Google neuters Google Gaydar".  They have apparently been embarrassed into fixing their censorship of the concept of Patrick Buchanan, a man whose isolationism is not 'good for the Jews'.

Sailer on Snowden's careful conspiracy:  "Snowden: Don't mention the I-Word!"  Also on the difference between blackmail and an attempt to obtain damages where local officials are corrupted by a powerful group:  "Stifling whistleblowers"

"Google's deep CIA and NSA connections"

"Bitcoin" by Michael Betancourt. Amazing that the bug/feature of the alternative to fiat currency is complete loss of privacy, something which suits late capitalism very well.  Yet we've been taught to believe Bitcoin is part of the fight against Big Brother.

"Heavy Pressure Led to Decision by Obama on Syrian Arms":
"His ambivalence about the decision seemed evident even in the way it was announced. Mr. Obama left it to a deputy national security adviser, Benjamin J. Rhodes, to declare Thursday evening that the president’s “red line” on chemical weapons had been crossed and that support to the opposition would be increased. At the time, Mr. Obama was addressing a gay pride event in the East Room. On Friday, as Mr. Rhodes was again dispatched to defend the move at a briefing, the president was hosting a Father’s Day luncheon in the State Dining Room."

Who is this Ben Rhodes guy who seems to be running American foreign policy in the absence of Barry even though he is young, came out of nowhere (and, miracle of miracles, has a brother who came out of nowhere to become the president of CBS News), and whose main qualification is that he is a failed novelist?

"NYT’s Rhodes to Nowhere: A Cipher in the Oval Office" by Russ Baker" (see also "Who is Ben Rhodes?"):
"We don’t really learn much about Rhodes’s either, beyond the fact that he is quietly pushing for more US intervention in Syria, on the heels of a successful push to convince a supposedly reticent Obama to bomb the heck out of Libya, purportedly for human rights reasons."
and (this is the sort of thing that creates conspiracy theorists):
"Though the Times never underlines this, the careful reader comes to realize that Rhodes’s guiding philosophy is as hard to discern as the precise reasons that he has the president’s ear. In 1997, he briefly worked on the re-election campaign of New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a Republican. Shortly after 9/11, the aspiring novelist suddenly decided to do his part for society, moving in 2002 from Queens to Washington, and quickly found himself “helping draft the 9/11 Commission report as well as the Iraq Study Group report.”

The Times, of course, does not think it is worth pointing out how strange this is. It is almost as if all 24-year-olds with no apparent credentials of any kind go directly to explaining the most massively controversial and complex set of circumstances to the American people.

We are never even told what kind of education Rhodes got, or where, or whether he has ever been anything beyond an aspiring novelist. There’s no indication of what he did on Giuliani’s campaign (he would only have been about 19 or 20 at the time) or whether his preference for the mayor who presided over the 9/11 response had anything to do with his going to Washington, or miraculously being hired by Democrat Lee Hamilton to explain 9/11 to the public.

From these improbable beginnings, Rhodes is suddenly a speechwriter on Obama’s presidential campaign. How did he come to Obama’s attention? The article doesn’t say. However, it does note that the Iraq Study group report on which Rhodes worked “was a template for the anti-Iraq war positions taken by Barack Obama” as a senator and candidate."
and (I find this stuff hilarious):
"Almost as an afterthought about this fellow who rocketed from obscurity to being one of Obama’s most influential advisors, the writer, quoting Rhodes’ older brother on the family’s baseball feud, notes that the brother “is now the president of CBS News.” Searching sources other than the Times, we find that David Rhodes was a production assistant at the fledgling Fox News Channel around the same time Benjamin was volunteering for Giuliani—and was the conservative channel’s news desk Assignment Manager when the planes struck the Twin Towers. Highly trusted by Fox’s chairman Roger Ailes, he managed Fox’s coverage of three presidential elections, including the one where his brother was writing Obama’s speeches, was hired by Bloomberg TV right after Obama’s election, and in 2011 was named president of CBS News."
Of course, the answer:
"The son of a conservative-leaning Episcopalian father from Texas and a more liberal Jewish mother from New York . . . "
I don't call them 'wars for the Jews' for nothing.

Water

"Is a Lack of Water to Blame for the Conflict in Syria?":
"In Syria, a devastating drought beginning in 2006 forced many farmers to abandon their fields and migrate to urban centers. There’s some evidence that the migration fueled the civil war there, in which 80,000 people have died. “You had a lot of angry, unemployed men helping to trigger a revolution,” says Aaron Wolf, a water management expert at Oregon State University, who frequently visits the Middle East.
Tensions between nations are also high. Since 1975, Turkey’s dam and hydro­power construction has cut water flow to Iraq by 80 percent and to Syria by 40 percent. Syria and Iraq have accused Turkey of hoarding water."
If Syria ends up in the hands of 'al Qaeda', and therefore loses access to international law, Turkey gets to keep more water.  Note how Turkey has been using the water that should flow to Syria and Iraq to pacify Turkish Kurdistan.

The magical world of the CIA

"NSA leaker Edward Snowden’s path from security guard to security clearance":
"Halfway through 10th grade, during the 1998-1999 school year, Snowden dropped out of Arundel High School, where he had made little impression.

Three years later, his parents divorced. He dipped in and out of course work over the next dozen years and was eventually certified as a Microsoft Solutions Expert — a gateway to tech jobs. But Snowden felt stuck in those first years of adulthood.

In 2004, he enlisted in the Army Reserve as a Special Forces recruit but less than four months later he was discharged.

Snowden struggled through a period of joblessness, spending long nights playing computer games and chatting online.

In 2006, Snowden made a remarkable leap from security guard at the University of Maryland to security clearance. His new position with the CIA put him on the path to extensive travel, a six-figure income and extraordinary access to classified material.

How he managed that jump remains unclear."
In the magical world of the CIA dreams do come true.

Affordable

"The NSA Can Afford To Store Data From Years Of Phone Calls"

With all that enslaving control at his fingertips, you know what Barry's saying: 'can we afford not to?'.

Genie safely back in the bottle, with some help

"Think That’s All She Wrote"

Marshall's original doubts seem to be part of a plan to put the genie - in this case, Nadler revealing some really bad stuff he heard in a confidential briefing - back into the bottle: "Is That New NSA Story Accurate?" By the way, Marshall reveals himself to be quite the fascist.

"Datagate and the Death of American Liberalism" I guess you know what references to 'isolationism' and Dr Seuss might mean.

The advantages of knowing everything

Here we go:  "NSA admits listening to U.S. phone calls without warrants":
"A requirement of the 2008 law is that the NSA "may not intentionally target any person known at the time of acquisition to be located in the United States." A possible interpretation of that language, some legal experts said, is that the agency may vacuum up everything it can domestically -- on the theory that indiscriminate data acquisition was not intended to "target" a specific American citizen."
Gathering everything is OK.  Also:
"Director of National Intelligence Michael McConnell indicated during a House Intelligence hearing in 2007 that the NSA's surveillance process involves "billions" of bulk communications being intercepted, analyzed, and incorporated into a database.
They can be accessed by an analyst who's part of the NSA's "workforce of thousands of people" who are "trained" annually in minimization procedures, he said. (McConnell, who had previously worked as the director of the NSA, is now vice chairman at Booz Allen Hamilton, Snowden's former employer.)"
As far as the NSA is concerned, gathering everything without warrants is legally permitted, and once they have it, NSA analysts who are 'trained' to NSA standards are legally allowed to listen to whatever they want.  Gathering everything is actually better than getting a FISA warrant for a particular target.

PRISM is going to take over the entire discussion, and, lo and behold, it is not that bad.  Get  a few more keys for the 'lockbox', and all will be deemed to be well.

The three big questions concerning Total Information Awareness are:
  1. economic - can we pay to store all this information?; 
  2. technical - can we develop search engines that will allow us to handle all this information without becoming paralyzed by the sheer volume of it (remember that Simon's big straw man was the ridiculousness of having FBI agents listen to all the conversations!!!), the traditional problem with totalitarian states?; and
  3. legal - in a country with constitutional protections for basic liberties, how is any of this allowed?
The NSA believes it has an answer to the first two of these problems, and just needs to fool Americans into believing that the presence of those scary Moooooooslims under their beds justifies a bit of bending of the constitution to finesse the legal problem.  Some tinkering will be done to PRISM, and everybody will go back to sleep.

The final step will be to continue to expand the exploitation of the information as a method of social control using blackmail or something like blackmail - even the awareness that there is information out there that could be used for blackmail will start to influence behavior, particularly repressing any kind of political protest (not that there is much of that anyway) - and to use the insider information to siphon up whatever wealth is not yet in the hands of the 1% (it is a fun fact that Booz Allen is owned by the Carlyle Group).

Snowden and the war between the CIA and the Pentagon

"Did someone help Ed Snowden punch a hole in the NSA?" by Jon Rappoport:
"Snowden worked for the CIA. He was pushed up the ranks quickly, from an IT position in the US to a posting in Geneva, under diplomatic cover, to run security on the CIA’s computer systems there.

Then, Snowden quit the CIA and eventually ended up at Booz Allen, a private contractor. He was assigned to NSA, where he stole the secrets and exposed the NSA.

The CIA and NSA have a long contentious relationship. The major issue is, who is king of US intelligence? We’re talking about an internal war.

Snowden could have been the CIA’s man at NSA, where certain CIA players helped him access files he wouldn’t have been able to tap otherwise."

"NSA leaker: are there serious cracks in Ed Snowden’s story?" by Jon Rappoport

"Did the CIA give the NSA documents to Ed Snowden?" by Jon Rappoport

The two big oddities in the Snowden story are his remarkable employment history and his remarkable access to high-level secrets for somebody who was a relatively low-level employee of an outside contractor.  Snowden was recruited as a CIA asset at an early age, probably is still a CIA asset today, and could very easily have been manipulated by the CIA into a position where he could plausibly pose as a whistleblower against the NSA.  This does not impugn his personal credibility or the credibility of his information, but answers some big mysteries about how he came to be the face of all the secrets.

 Barry just replaced the #2 at the CIA with an outsider: "President Obama's pick for the CIA's second-in-command once held erotica nights at her Baltimore bookstore"  She replaces a career CIA guy who retired, in the words of John Brennan,  "to spend more time with his family and to pursue other professional opportunities".  Standard firing words.  A thirty-three year CIA veteran replaced by Barry with an erotica expert.

Ever since 9/11, the CIA has been losing power and influence to the Pentagon.  Most recently, Barry is moving the current jewel of American might, the drone program, from the CIA to the Pentagon.  The NSA is part of the Pentagon (something that is seldom mentioned).  The way things are going, erotica may be all the CIA has left.

I'm having my brain removed too

"See you on the dark side" by Pepe Escobar (TIA is Total Information Awareness):
"From now on, it's just a matter of carefully, gradually guiding US public opinion to fully "normalize" TIA. After all, we're making all these sacrifices to protect you."
The lock-step of American columnists. The concentration camp guard is particularly interested in protecting the GWOT - invented at Herzliya in the late 80s to provide a reason for the Americans to continue to support Zionism after the fall of the Soviet Union - in order to ensure that the great Jewish con job remains in full force and effect.

"‘Washington Post’ columnist doesn’t rule out ‘mass roundups of ethnic or religious groups’ in U.S."

"NSA surveillance played little role in foiling terror plots, experts say"  You may wonder why all this unconstitutional surveillance, justified on the basis that it is absolutely necessary to stop another 9/11, never actually prevents any terrorism.  The examples are particularly hilarious as Zazi was an obvious patsy with a police department confidential informant/handler, and Headley was a full-fledged CIA employee.

"Blowing a Whistle" by Thomas L. Friedman (note the reliance on Simon).  Allow me to summarize:  the Panopticon is horrible so we need the Panopticon in order to prevent another 9/11 which would lead to the imposition of the Panopticon.  Friedman, fearing a future stoke, has obviously decided to take the prophylactic measure of having his brain removed.

"Barton Gellman, Glenn Greenwald feud over NSA leaker"  "After NSA Leaker Goes Public: Greenwald Hits Gellman Over Claims About Edward Snowden"  Wikileaks would have been the way to go (which is why they have Assange preoccupied).  The Washington Post was the worst place in the world to approach.

"Why James Clapper Should Be Impeached For Lying To Congress"  He outright lied.  No consequences.

"Why Edward Snowden's flight to Hong Kong might be brilliant" (Putin, on a roll these days, may step in):
"Patricia Ho, a lawyer at Daly & Associates, which specializes in refugee cases and international public law, told GlobalPost that in December Hong Kong courts ruled the government could not send people home if they would face cruel and unusual punishment.

"The reason I think this is relevant," said Ho, "is because if you look at the case of Bradley Manning, during his detention period, he was found to have suffered cruel and degrading treatment. It was found by the UN special rapporteur on torture," she said.

"I would imagine given the similarity in the cases that Snowden could easily say, 'Well, I fear that the same would happen to me,' and use that as a basis to claim protection in Hong Kong. If he does that I would say his chances of protection would be fair.""

I've got nothing to hide

Can you imagine what the American 'left' would be saying if the NSA revelations had occurred on Bush's watch? Since Barry - the most progressive man who ever walked the planet - is behind it, everything is fine. This is why Barry was such a brilliant choice for President.

The right, except for that tiny fringe that is truly libertarian, is torn between thinking the revelations are a Chinese government plot to weaken the United States, and thinking that real (i.e., white) Americans have nothing to hide and need all of the unconstitutional outrages the NSA can muster to save real Americans from those scary Mooooooslims under their beds.

Has anyone noticed that the American government has never successfully used its spying to uncover a real terrorist plot? They completely missed the Boston bombing with the Russians repeatedly begging the Americans to look into Tamerlan (of course, why would you look into your own employee?). The only terrorist plots the American government ever finds are the ones set up by the FBI, and they don't even stop all of those (Oklahoma City).

Yottabytes

"Appointments to the US National Security Council don't require Senate confirmation, but they do require Israeli confirmation" "Ted Cruz and Glenn Beck Go After Samantha Power and Susan Rice" It is extremely interesting that Cruz, who is clearly angling to become the next Republican Presidential nominee, has no fear at attacking the Lobby's monsters, albeit with traditional American right-wing demagoguery which completely misses the point.

"Syria - Israel Is Losing the Battle" by Gilad Atzmon.

Amongst the other big advantages to Nasrallah's decision to participate in the lung-eater removal operation in Syria - including, of course, not having the Islamic Republic of Lung-Eaters as a next-door neighbor - is that Hezbollah's army has a nice tune up for the next inevitable and utterly illegal Jewish invasion of Lebanon. For its part, the IDF is getting ready by murdering Palestinian children.

The necessity of fighting and winning

"London Declaration on Anti-Semitism - a Glimpse Into Jewish Phobia" by Gilad Atzmon

Power trouble?: "Samantha Power" NO!: "Boteach: Samantha Power cried with 'pain and emotion' as her support for Israel doubted"  It is lucky there is only one issue to consider when vetting these people.  Power and Rice are war-mongers, pure and simple, and wars are 'good for the Jews'.

"Western media on the population of Qusayr" The Jew-controlled media literally just makes things up as required for the propaganda purposes of the group supremacists.

It is interesting how important it is to win a battle. Nobody does the right thing in this world. If you want to do good, you have to struggle for it, and evil won't give up without a big fight.

"Who’s the Hypocrite?" Jews run big companies like Intel, extract the profits from gentiles, and then, for pure group supremacist motives, put the money into research facilities in Israel, allowing Jews to crow that we are all dependent on their genius inventions. There is a clear lesson to be learned here. Gentiles should never, ever allow Jews to own or run big corporations.

"Is This Who Runs Prism?" "Startup Palantir Denies Its 'Prism' Software Is The NSA's 'PRISM' Surveillance System"  Read down to see that Palantir is dirty, so I wouldn't trust their denials.

"Back Door Access? Tech Giants Deny Knowledge of PRISM Spy Operation" These denials have been carefully crafted to hide the truth. I think a strong argument can be made that the real reason we have social media is for surveillance and control.

Americans aren't wise people

Exactly the kind of nonsense you are going to be seeing:
"Let me restate: Thus far, the fact that the government is maintaining a data base of all calls, for use as a retroactive asset in a campaign against terror that represents an actual geopolitical reality. The value of such a data-base to the interception of communication by terror organizations is apparent and demonstrable."
Bullshit.  "Actual geopolitical reality"?  "Apparent and demonstrable"?    As Bunk and McNulty might say - 'Fuck'.  Note that Simon's comment acknowledges something he made fun of in the rhetorical posturing of his article.

Simon writes as if he knows what he is talking about (and believes his critics can't read), and his considerable reputation will be used as part of Obama's 'debate', a 'debate' which will rely on Islamophobia to allow the NSA to continue to do the mass collecting of communications data (not to mention the inevitable mining of this data).  Loss of privacy is usually not immediately noticeable, and fear of the imaginary Moooooooslim under the bed is a powerful motivator.

It is too bad that Americans won't consider the lessons of other totalitarian states, where similar imaginary fears - almost always based on 'terrorism', or its equivalent, from an outside group slurred for some political purpose (in this case, needless to say, it is World Jewry slurring Muslims so Jews can kill people and steal their land in the Middle East, ironic as Jews have so often been the on the other side of this phenomenon) - have led to similar losses of privacy, and inevitable eventual complete political disaster.  Wise people stop this kind of thing in the bud, as they know this data will, certainly, be misused.

This is an excellent opportunity for Americans to acknowledge that:
  1.  most 'terrorism' against Americans, and all 'terrorism' ascribed to Moooooooslims, is the work of the American government or some foreign government - well, if we're being honest, one foreign government in particular - trying to attack Islam using 'false flags' for political purposes, 
  2. the Global War On Terror is a complete crock of shit, and 
  3. the United States is on its way to becoming a full-fledged third world country/failed state/totalitarian nightmare unless it ceases this terrorism obsession.
Difficult as it may be to imagine, 'terrorism' used to be something that might have happened in Paris in the 1890s, and war was an unnatural state that a well-run country attempted to avoid at all costs.

Lost all credibility

"Oh, And One More Thing: NSA Directly Accessing Information From Google, Facebook, Skype, Apple And More" Barry is the perfect guy for building the Panopticon - the Republicans love this kind of authoritarianism, and the Democrats will never seriously criticize the most progressive man who has ever walked the planet (see also the one-two punch of Rice and Power).  Polite outrage will focus on the stuff for which they have FISA warrants, and will fade away.  Once this kind of structure is built, you can never get rid of it.

"The New York Times Quietly Softened Its Scathing Obama Editorial"

I wonder which 'Do Evil' company built the search engines for the NSA.  The historical problem with total data collection is that you become overwhelmed with all the information.  Searching made the Panopticon possible.

Note also how this authoritarian structure ties directly to Islamophobia (and note it is 'anti-Semitic' to suggest who is behind this preoccupation), without which it couldn't exist, which, when you think about it, is bizarre.  And very sad.  Americans are fucked, and some of us know why.

Sometimes when I am reading some bullshit, I just enjoy the hell out of a sentence (or part of a sentence - the punctuation is messed up):  "Though the U.S. was loath to use one of the special new weapons because of its extremely high $3.5-million cost (the overall cost of developing the new weapon was $500-million)."  Just think of all the generals staying awake all night worrying about that $3.5-million cost!

"JNF will not fund Clinton speech" 'Will not' means in the future, but the last reporting went out of its way to make it clear that they had already paid him. This is just nonsense and obfuscation.  They are going through a few more hoops to pass Bill the bribe (and an anticipated 30 years of bellying up to the trough explains a lot of Barry's actions).

It is not just the Americans using police state tactics to bully journalists and whistleblowers:  "Military police teams probed leaks to Citizen reporter in 2011" "Canadian Forces called in its top cops to find reporter’s source: newspaper"

"When Israel compensated Germans for land in Palestine"  Given the Jewish reliance on legalese to do evil, this acknowledgment of the Nakba should come in handy.

Punches

"One Palestinian child has been killed by Israel every 3 days for the past 13 years"

"How Israel Steals Palestinian Land: the Blueprint used all over the World"

"Existence of “Jewish Lobby” Confirmed again by Israeli Media"  Rice and Power are two of the most evil people in the universe (to be more accurate, I rate Rice as #1 and Power in the top 10), and the one-two punch by Barry is a clear signal.  Dersh is so overjoyed he can't keep his blood-dripping fangs in:  "Samantha Power Will Wow Them at the United Nations "

"NSA collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily" This is a classic 'limited hangout'. Bad as it sounds, it is intended to be seen as following the traditional crime investigation model, with the crime being the investigation of the Boston bombings, and an actual warrant being obtained. In fact, the operating model in the United States now is the NSA's Panopticon, where all communications are monitored illegally without warrants, search engines are applied to identify 'suspicious' words being used, at which point the full illegal surveillance is applied to those who say the bad words. Once the American government gets away with this - and it will, as the Jew-controlled media's campaign of Islamophobia, and a few well-placed false flag operations, has Americans terrified of what Mooooooslim is hiding under their beds - NSA will have a de facto retroactive approval to the Panopticon.

I think it is sweet that the 'left' is still defending Barry on the questionable standard that at least he is not as bad as Tricky Dick, when Nixon, in his worst nightmares, could not imagine doing what Barry does as a matter of course, every day, on a wholesale basis, with no criticism whatsoever, except perhaps that he is letting Muslims get away with murder.

"WHO In Boston: The Fishy Gets Fishier" (an odd place to find this kind of thinking). The third link on backpacks is very interesting.

"Guriyev fears new move against jailed Khodorkovsky" I have to wonder whether the new interest in Khodorkovsky relates directly to the express violent threats made by the Jews against Russia.

Qusayr

"Syrian army regains strategic city of Qusayr"

"The Syrian Army Takes Qusayr"

Watch the Guardian try to downplay the significance using tweets from 'experts': "Syria crisis: Assad's forces retake Qusair - live updates" The significance is that the Syrian Army and Hezbollah have established that they can defeat the lung-eaters, even in well established positions, meaning that Syria can be saved. On to Aleppo!

"Meet the 'Friends of Jihad'" Pepe has a little fun.

"France, Britain say samples confirm nerve gas sarin has been used in Syria" The well-buried lede is that the Obama administration needs more proof. It is completely clear that the Americans plan to sit this one out and wait for Assad and Hezbollah to retake the country. I'm sure Barry thinks the Russian defensive missiles are just swell as they make a no-fly zone impossible, and provide the vital Excuse For The Jews.

"Did an Israel lobby front group organize McCain’s trip to Syria?" McCain continues his lifetime of treason.  The group of fellow-travelers of the 'left' in defending the lung-eaters is hilarious.

"Mossad MITM SSL Attack" Some traitors in Iran are probably in trouble.

Egypt sentences some spies. The NGOs are one of the main weapons used by the Americans, and every country should follow Egypt.

Assassination

"APB: At Least Two Missing “Law Enforcement Personnel,” Last Seen at Ibragim Todashev Homicide Scene".  The 'law enforcement personnel' written out of the story are, of course, the assassination team.

To summarize, the FBI was disturbed by the first interview, as Todashev indicated he knew the brothers were set up.  It was thus imperative to:
  1. reinterview Todashev to find out what he knew, and more importantly, identify whoever else knew; and
  2. liquidate Todashev.
Why didn't they just arrange for a drive-by shooting, or a home invasion/murder? They needed to interview him to find out who else they had to murder, and then immediately liquidate Todashev before he could talk to anyone else. The incompetence of the liquidation was probably caused by Todashev realizing what was going to happen, fighting for his life rather effectively (as he was a trained fighter), resulting in the panicked murder, and a most ludicrous attempt at a cover-up.

"Obama told friends he reneged on progressive promises out of fear of assassination — former CIA analyst"  The comments aren't very charitable to poor Barry, the most progressive man who has ever lived.  There are lots of people who would like to see him dead, but I doubt closing Guantanamo, or even ceasing drone attacks, would be the triggers that sent them over the edge.

"Update: Was Pablo Neruda Murdered By a CIA Double Agent Working for Pinochet?" Is the American assassin still alive?  The 'Update' suggests that Townley may be a distraction from the real killer.

Bootstrapping with the GWOT

"Assange Talks About Possible Holder Prosecution" (my emphasis in red):
"We have over here the bulk surveillance industry run by the National Security Agency that already has all these records. It has them all already. The National Security Agency—and this has come out in one court case after another—was involved in a project called Stellar Wind to collect all the calling records of the United States, every record of everyone calling everyone over years. And the result of that lay out the entire community and political structure, based upon who people are friends with. You can infer that by who calls who, and what the status is by the relative flow of calls around the country, to suck out the entire community structure of the United States. That has already been done. Those calling records already enter into the national security complex.

What we’re talking about here are mechanisms to use that information in a court case, and therefore it has to be clean. This is the dirty team; this is the clean team. And so, these are maneuvers to pull people into court cases that will become public to set a deterrent against national security journalism. And the most pernicious aspect of that is the abuse of the Espionage Act and other mechanisms to try and conflate the activities of a source with the activities of a journalist or a publisher, and to try and say that whenever a journalist deals with a source, they’re in fact engaged in a conspiracy. And if there’s an allegation—of course, allegations can be very easily made, placed on the table, just invented from thin air—that a source’s behavior affects national security and is therefore espionage, and therefore, extend that allegation over to the journalist and to the source—and to the publisher. In the case of Rosen, they have done that in order to get at Rosen’s emails and other records, to then back reflect onto the source or onto other sources. You know, it is simply a disgrace. It is unethical conduct. It is politically worrying conduct. It is chilling conduct. And it is—why is it being done? Because they believe they can get away with it. It is part of advancing the frontier of the national security state to roll on over the First Amendment and every other traditionally accepted U.S. value."
They already have all the information - and just think how useful Facebook and similar social networking sites have been to them, leading one to assume they have been backed by the national security apparatus for nefarious purposes all along - but what they have has been gathered illegally (essentially a global wiretapping operation without warrants), so they have to finesse the legislation, using the global war on terror and statutes intended to be used against actual spies, to sneak inadmissible evidence into the court system.  Note the circularity - an allegation is made that national security is at stake, allowing the evidence to be heard, evidence which consists of a journalist and a source discussing issues that might be construed as involving national security, a discussion which is therefore a conspiracy in itself, thus confirming that the evidence should have been admitted, and thus cleaning part of their mountain of illegally obtained evidence.

How is it exactly that Assange is still labeled by many phony conspiracists as a government plant?
