Edward Snowden Granted 3 More Years Of Russian Residency

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. The fireworks instead came in the form of a bombshell that exploded in a mushroom cloud of shoddy reporting and the usual hyperbolic, misleading accusations that have been the centerpiece of [...]

Throughout the past year of covering the shoddy journalism orbiting the NSA story, it never ceases to amaze that so many award-winning journalists, some veterans, some not-so-much, are unable to adequately explain things.

Ordinary Internet users, with no reason to be targeted, far outnumber those who are targeted by the NSA, according to a Washington Post investigation. Nine of 10 account holders found in a large cache of intercepted conversations, which former NSA contractor Edward Snowden provided in full to The Post, were not the intended surveillance targets [...]

Edward Snowden media sherpa Glenn Greenwald doesn’t have too many fans around these parts, so Daily Banterers probably sensed a giddy disturbance in The Force Friday night when IAVA founder Paul Rieckhoff got into it with Greenwald, but When Greenwald demanded evidence of lives lost, it was Maher who responded with what was the best point [...]

Director Oliver Stone will do the Edward Snowden story for the silver screen. He has tackled the Kennedy assassination and the Watergate break-in, the Vietnam conflict and the Bush administration’s “war on terror”. Now the Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone is set to whip up fresh controversy with his adaptation of The Snowden Files, an account [...]

In mid-June of last year, at the vanguard of the Edward Snowden revelations, a Hong Kong attorney named Albert Ho met with Snowden to assist the NSA contractor’s plans to leave the Chinese city-state for points unknown. Following the meeting, Ho told The New York Times, “He didn’t go out, he spent all his time [...]
