Russ Tice: NSA monitored nation’s top officials,
June 21, 2013
By Linda Lewis.
In a bombshell interview, former NSA intelligence analyst Russell Tice provided new details about previously reported NSA wiretapping in the period 2002-2005. Speaking with Peter Collins and Sibel Edmonds (Boiling Frogs), Tice said NSA senior management were implicated in apparent monitoring of the communications of top government officials–Supreme Court judges, Senate Intelligence Committee members, senior military officers and candidates for public office–as well as international NGOs like the Red Cross. Tice said Barack Obama, Gen. David Petraeus and Sen. Diane Feinstein were among those targeted for surveillance.
Tice disclosed previously that he was a source for a New York Times’ expose of warrantless wiretapping. Tice went public with his concerns on December 16, 2005, the day the NYT article, written by James Risen and Eric Lichtblau, hit newsstands. UPI detailed Tice’s efforts to go through “channels” with his concerns about possible NSA abuses. Subsequently, Tice appeared on several television news programs, including Keith Olbermann’s Countdown.
