Greenwald on ‘coming’ leak: NSA can obtain one billion cell phone calls a day, store them and listen
RT ^ | June 29, 2013

Posted on 06/30/2013 12:32:19 PM PDT by opentalk

The NSA has a “brand new” technology that enables one billion cell phone calls a day to be redirected into its data hoards and stored, according to the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, who said that a new leak of Snowden’s documents was ‘coming soon.’

Calling it part of a “globalized system to destroy all privacy,” and the enduring creation of a climate of fear, Greenwald outlined the capabilities of the NSA to store every single call while having“the capability to listen to them at any time,” while speaking via Skype to the Socialism Conference in Chicago, on Friday.

Greenwald was the first journalist to leak Snowden’s documents, having travelled to Hong Kong to review them prior to exposure.

“What we’re really talking about here is a globalized system that prevents any form of electronic communication from taking place without its being stored and monitored by the National Security Agency,” he said.

While he underlined that the NSA are not necessarily listening in on the full billion calls, he pointed out their capability to do so and the lack of accountability with “virtually no safeguards” which the NSA were being held to.

The Guardian journalist made hints that he was sitting on further details of the NSA’s billion-call backlog, which he’d keep under wraps until the documents full publication, which he said was “coming soon.”

He additionally suggested future exposures to come from Snowden, while lauding the sheer risk the whistleblower took in revealing the NSA’s covert surveillance program.

I always use the words “bomb,” “assassinate,” “Tea Party,” and “constitution” in all my phone conversations so the NSA wastes their time listening to them.

Atlas Sneezed ~:” The source is “RT”. WTF is that? Looks Russian.”

rt.com = “Russia Today” , funded by the Russians.
It speaks as the voice of the Kremlin
Sorta like MSNBC is the voice of the White House

RT is the new name of Russia Today.

You wouldn't seriously expect an American source to be able to publish this would you?

Name an American reporter, editor or media mogul who doesn't have a nice fat file of his or her peccadilloes on tap at "an essay".

And simply by hearing the sound of wet grass, the NSA will be able to railroad you into a murder charge.
