Rand Paul Squandered The Only Shot At NSA Reform For A Long, Long Time

The Keystone XL pipeline wasn’t the only piece of legislation that was killed on Tuesday. Make no mistake, it’ll unfortunately be back after the new Congress is sworn in next year, but for now it’s been blocked. The other item on Tuesday’s agenda was the USA Freedom Act, a bill designed to reform the National […]

Speaking in Canada, Glenn Greenwald was asked why Edward Snowden isn’t on social media. “He doesn’t use Facebook because he hates Facebook,” he said. “They’re one of the worst violators of privacy in history. Nobody should use Facebook.” Greenwald did add that despite the difficulties of being the most wanted man in the world right […]

Glenn Greenwald says there is another leaker working inside the U.S. intelligence community, in addition to Edward Snowden. Towards the end of filmmaker Laura Poitras’s portrait of Snowden – titled Citizenfour, the label he used when he first contacted her – Greenwald is seen telling Snowden about a second source. Snowden, at a meeting with […]

Edward Snowden’s attorney announced that the former NSA analyst  and leaker has been given a residence permit for three more years in Russia. “On the first of August he received a three-year residence permit,” lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told reporters. He added that Snowden had not asked for political asylum. “He will be able to travel […]

There’s a new leaker exposing national security documents in the aftermath of surveillance disclosures by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, U.S. officials tell CNN. These leaks follow Snowden’s lead after he fled to Russia after allowing classified documents to be released. The documents which are shared by the new leaker are labeled “Secret” and “NOFORN,” […]

Intelligence workers have a really good time looking at suggestive photos of unknowing Americans, says Edward Snowden. He said NSA analysts searching for signals intelligence were examining mostly mundane – but sometimes intimate – messages and photographs sent online or through cellphones by “ordinary citizens.” “They stumble across something … completely unrelated to their work, […]

Glenn Greenwald’s “grand finale fireworks display” finally appeared online early Wednesday and, indeed, there were fireworks, but not the “spectacular multicolored hues” he predicted.
