Skip to comments.Snowden: Private Explicit Photos Often Shared By NSA Agents
Posted on 07/22/2014 8:38:22 PM PDT by lbryce
In an interview published by The Guardian on Sunday, NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden explained that sometimes racy images intercepted by the NSA were shared by analysts.
During the interview, which was conducted in Russia, Snowden said that some of the American military personnel working on the NSAs programs were between 18 and 22 and did not always respect the privacy of those whose communications were intercepted.
In the course of their daily work they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work, for example an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation but theyre extremely attractive, he said. So what do they do? They turn around in their chair and they show a co-worker. And their co-worker says: Oh, hey, thats great. Send that to Bill down the way.
Snowden said that type of sharing occurred once every couple of months and was seen as the fringe benefits of surveillance positions and of the privilege of being President. He said that this was never reported and that the system for auditing surveillance programs was incredibly weak.

Certainly, being in the course of daily work, having them ogle, share and worse when finding an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising situation but theyre extremely attractive. So what do they do? They turn around in their chair and they show a co-worker. And their co-worker says: Oh, hey, thats great. Send that to Bill down the way.'
It just goes to prove there was nothing honorable, patriotic nor self-respecting of those working in the NSA that was done for patriotic reasons. They were involve in criminal acts an every once in a while, they'd get some prurient thrill coming across items og genuine privacy, that actually had zero national defense implications. But humans being being what they are, responding to prurient interests, being motivated by prurient interests, can be the strong motivator in sifting through mill=lions of documents like some desperate sexually depraved pedophile whose patients is inexhaustible for that on single picture to make his day.
So essentially, national security is driven more by sexual proclivity and prurience than anything else.
Snowden also revealed that all imagery discovered through the NSA of a certain nature would be delivered to the White House under the strictest security precautions with only a handful of black men allowed access, including Reggie Love.

Snowden is under control of Russian intelligence right now, and probably was from the very beginning. He also has been shown to be a liar, mixing lies with a little truth. I would take most of what he says with a grain of salt.
No surprise there.
No Helen Thompson photos!!!!!!!!
Know why he's in Russia? Because the Chinese asked him to leave Hong Kong. And then an enraged Obama unilaterally REVOKED his passport. He had NO way to leave the airport.
Does that sound like the way a Russian asset --the biggest Russian asset and maybe the biggest intel asset in world history-- would be treated..?

Kay, WHAT did he lie about ?
Who merits more trust --the President, or Snowden?
One of the more disturbing aspects of his disclosures is the fact that these are not “NSA” workers but outside contractors that have access to much of this material.
Like “Chelsea Manning”, with access to more secret files than they could carry? More than one million people with secret access?
They really aren’t secrets anymore.
You KNOW Snowden is a traitor. /s
In b4 - This thread is worthless without...
Yeah, I was gonna say, let’s take a gander ...
He is scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point.
When did Snowden go over to the Russians?
Pictures, you say. Why didn’t you ask earlier?
Go to Google Image, Input Classified Security Key
OBAMA_FUDGEPACK Folder 1-1,000
subfolder Reggie Love 4444rqa
submit to Goole images
The NSA was once regarded as the prestigious arm of US Intelligence, then overnight it wasn’t with fallout from around the World.
Something about the Snowden episode doesn’t square in my opinion — the timing, the drama, congressional apathy, superficial evidence, nondescript statements...
And of course Snowden is such a reliable source... (/sarc)
Documents are documents — but when people just take his word with NO evidence whatsoever, that is beyond preposterous.
“One of the more disturbing aspects of his disclosures is the fact that these are not NSA workers but outside contractors that have access to much of this material.”
That is what has bothered me from the beginning. Why all the hired outside hands getting into our most confidential business? Having served in the military there is a big difference between the culture of a sworn member of an institution serving the country, and hired hacks looking to increase profits, pare costs and give their CEO a bigger bonus.
There are some areas of government that should not have a profit motive. It is military, security, intelligence, police, prisons. Why...because the profit motive distorts justice and their mission that serves us, and works to perpetuate war and sentences in prison.
