National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden’s shocking revelations of massive illegal government surveillance was swiftly met by the Obama administration’s routine response to whistleblowers, criminal prosecution in federal court. The program he exposed is nothing less than a full-scale government effort to completely eliminate individual privacy. The federal regime, in homage to their ostensible ideological forbearers, the East German Stasi, has at least in practice adopted the Stasi’s motto of “to know everything.” Snowden was charged with a variety of offenses directly flowing from his whistleblowing, including theft of government property, unauthorized communication of national defense information and willful communication of classified communications intelligence information to an unauthorized person, in a criminal complaint dated June 14th.

  1. There is something fishy about the Bloomberg story Montag posted. It can’t be a coincidence that out of the blue a negative assault is launched against the whistle-blower right after the date the DOJ launched its nuclear attack on him. My assessment is that the DOJ is involved in the Bloomberg story. I don’t buy the Bloomberg story, and I think Barry Sussman’s assessment rings completely true. To me, it appears this is a true tragedy against someone who threatened the Obama Administration, and the Administration attacked him. The Bloomberg story was just propaganda. It is clear when you read it. It was a carefully crafted hit and to lend any credence to the DOJ right now is naive.

  2. I agree with Jennifer. The Bloomberg story is cheap propaganda no doubt initiated by Eric Holder’s office. Sussman’s story is legit.

  3. That Bloomberg article had the feel of a journalistic drive-by-shooting. Who else but Bloomberg would be so easily manipulated by Wall Street and its minions as the Department of Labor. This could be the next big Obama scandal.
