In case anyone’s interested in some interesting details of the multi-national spying that’s going on, Ed Snowden tipped us off on details that are interesting while not at all surprising.
The Intercept is a publication I’ve come to hate to love. While it’s certainly slanted, at the same time it goes into detail about things that appear to be quite accurate, and which rarely if ever get credibly attacked. I’ve found it worth checking on a fairly regular basis for “little” things that don’t show up anywhere else. Great resource now that real news and investigative journalism have virtually disappeared from anything the public has easily available to them – hidden in plain sight.

In a related post, the following article details just how the NSA and other agencies are using FISA courts and intercepts of U.S. residents, and how the government (in this particular case AG Eric Holder) keeps the information out of the courts even when requested by defense attorneys under full disclosure rules, and thereby keeps the information out of the press. This is just another example of the value of what Ed Snowden disclosed, no matter what else anyone might think of him.
This article starts getting interesting after about 5-6 paragraphs. The perp may have been a scum bag, but the details of what was done to gain the conviction, and how the government hid that, get very relevant to Americans (if they bothered to care). Don’t forget that Section 702 of FISA is the same section often cited in the attempts to take down Trump. Deeply placed bad actors within government structure can get away with pretty much anything they want. Check my signature line – there’s a reason it’s been there since I joined the Forum.

GS yes I know. Once the expression was Bayan of 100 eyes but considering the tech flow to the east recently it may be a million eyes now. Even the brits are replaying 1933. Alex Jones is under attack for what. Lets all do the chinese eye roll.
