Naming NSA Victims? Greenwald Says Game-Changer “Imminent”
New American ^ | June 26, 2014 | By Thomas R. Eddlem

Posted on 06/29/2014 4:31:27 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee

Investigative reporter Glenn Greenwald (shown) has promised to name victims of NSA warrantless surveillance, calling such an expose “imminent” in an interview with Fox News. Such an exposé may prove to be a game-changer in congressional and public debate on granting the NSA unconstitutional warrantless surveillance powers.

Greenwald has been the primary recipient of information about the once-secret NSA programs revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. Greenwald told Shepard Smith of Fox News that his next revelations will involve naming names about how NSA surveillance has strayed from merely going after terrorists to engaging in politics:

Greenwald: All the people on whom we are reporting consented to it. They participated in the story. They spoke on camera. We are publishing video.

Smith: Will we recognize these names and some of these people?

Greenwald: You will definitely recognize some of these names and some of these people.

Smith: From politics? From Government? From what?

Greenwald: From a little of all of that.

Smith: Okay...

Greenwald: I can't give hints. But they are people who, when you see that they are the targets you will see that they have nothing to do with terrorism and that they are definitely people engaged in political activism that's controversial.

Greenwald said that revelations will be published on his new website, The Intercept, but refused to state a specific date of publication. “The story is imminent,” Greenwald told Smith June 23. “You will definitely recognize some of these names and some of these people.”

Perhaps a few senators and congressmen will be named.

That is our only chance something will happen.

If it was one of us, it don't mean a thing.

“””why not just announce it instead of teasing?””

Maybe he will do it the same day Beck and Sheriff Joe release the info on the birth certificate investigation. I’m still waiting for that one.

If Greenwald successfully documents that the NSA has taken the leap toward surveiling people for their political views, he will reveal that establishment flunkies for NSA surveillance are liars, and perhaps create the kind of synergy that spawned the Church and Pike Committees that reined in warrantless political surveillance by the FBI and CIA in the 1950s and 1960s.

Given how Greenwald is gay and works for the Guardian, I wouldn't expect to learn that the NSA was monitoring conservatives.

I’m sure it’s covered if anything happens to him. In fact, by announcing this he probably just gave himself some protection.

What bothers me about it is all the people authorized the release of their names. I want to know who the NSA spied on that do not want their names made public. For instance say, John Boner and John Roberts.

hope his car doesn’t decide to take control and zoom him into a phone pole - mysteriously exploding into a massive fire bomb a millisecond before it actually hits the pole.

Even ignoring this, a Republican would have been hounded out of office for just some of what Snowden has alleged.

I really understand where you're coming from, and normally I would heartily agree, strongly based on what you said.

I'll go out on a limb, though, and say you're probably going to be surprised.

I subscribe to his youtube channel, and he's dropping weird hints that the people the NSA is spying on is US, and people like us.

I absolutely think the center of mass of NSA spying is the "Mom, Baseball, and apple-pie" set. I think Uncle Sam has gone out and axe-murdered the very people who loved him.

Yeah, it’s starting to look a little like a combed over tease... If they have names they need to release all of them... Not 6 liberals when those are the only liberals on the list... while 800 conservatives are listed... Put it all out or shut up about it.

If they all gave permission we can assume he’s only releasing the names of established members of dem victim groups.
