Permanent Washington?s backlash to Edward Snowden

In These Times
by David Sirota


Whether in celebrity culture or in our Facebook-mediated interactions, we live in the age of the human being as a public brand. So there s nothing surprising about the reaction to this week s disclosures about the National Security Agency s unprecedented surveillance program. In our cult-of-personality society, that reaction has been predictably, and unfortunately, focused less on the agency s possible crimes against the entire country than on Edward Snowden, the government contractor who disclosed the wrongdoing. Almost universally, the government officials, pundits and reporters who comprise Permanent Washington have derided Snowden...

The Stalinization of Amerika

Independent Institute
by Mary Theroux


In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, rather than hold accountable and roll the heads of the bunglers at the U.S. intelligence agencies who failed to follow up on multiple reports of possible terrorist activity.... Intelligence agencies were instead granted the expanded budgets and power that are always sought in the aftermath of a crisis. They were forced to abandon the nifty name and logo they had come up with (pictured at right, above) when it?s too-graphic, Big Brother-isc depiction elicited protest, but the spirit was fully retained, and a new era of unprecedented, total and widespread spying on innocent Americans began...

America: An empire of databases

Fox News Forum
by Matt Kibbe


If you are reading this, the federal government probably already knows it. Sure, that s being sarcastic...but not really. The Washington Post first revealed that the National Security Agency (NSA) and the FBI are 'tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, emails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person s movements and contacts over time' through a secret program called PRISM, which dates back to 2007. The NSA s eavesdropping on innocent civilians joins a number of 4th Amendment violations in the U.S. that have surfaced in recent months...
