    Glenn Greenwald told Fox News on Tuesday that new NSA revelations yet to be released will “shock” the world. Greenwald, the journalist who worked in some capacity with NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden to reveal the organization’s domestic cell phone spying program PRISM, has long teased that there is more information yet to be released in the NSA scandal. On Tuesday, he told Fox News host Eric Bolling that the “world will be shocked” by the coming revelations about the organization’s surveillance tactics, though otherwise played coy about the information. “You’re going to have to wait along with everybody else,” Greenwald...

    LA PAZ, Bolivia — The plane carrying Bolivian President Evo Morales home from Russia was rerouted to Austria on Tuesday after France and Portugal refused to let it cross their airspace because of suspicions that NSA leaker Edward Snowden was on board, the country’s foreign minister said. Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca denied that Snowden was on the plane, which landed in Vienna, and said France and Portugal would have to explain why they canceled authorization for the plane. “We don’t know who invented this lie. We want to denounce to the international community this injustice with the plane of President...

    WASHINGTON – Amid the cascading disclosures about National Security Agency surveillance programs, the top lawyer in the U.S. intelligence community opened his remarks at a rare public appearance last week with a lament about how much of the information being spilled was wrong. “A lie can get halfway around the world before the truth gets its boots on,” said Robert Litt, citing a line often attributed to Mark Twain. “Unfortunately, there’s been a lot of misinformation that’s come out about these programs.” The remark by Litt, general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, was aimed at...

    The United States bugged European Union offices and gained access to EU internal computer networks, the German magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday, citing NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden. Der Spiegel cited from a September 2010 "top secret" National Security Agency document that it said the fugitive former NSA contractor had taken with him to Hong Kong and which its journalists had seen in part, Reuters reported. The document outlines how the NSA bugged offices and spied on EU internal computer networks in Washington and at the United Nations, not only listening to conversations and phone calls but also gaining...

    The Guardian released another shocking NSA scoop on Saturday, revealing collusion and mass harvesting of personal communications among the United States and at least six European Union countries — only to delete it from their website hours after publication. The article, titled "Revealed: secret European deals to hand over private data to America," was written by Jamie Doward, who reported information from Wayne Madsen, a former Navy Lt. and NSA employee for 12 years.

    On the Friday morning edition of Fox and Friends, the panel discussed, among other things, President Obama’s trip to Africa along with the continuing saga of Edward Snowden and the NSA leaks. At one point, they played a clip of the president at the joint news conference in Senegal where the president admitted that he did not personally contact the presidents of China or Russia because “number one, I shouldn’t have to. This is something that routinely is dealt with between law enforcement officials and various countries.” However, host Steve Doocy and guest host Tucker Carlson were adept in pointing...
  • Obama administration reportedly allowed NSA to gather Americans' Internet data until 2011

    The Obama administration allowed the National Security Agency to gather Americans’ Internet information, including emails, until 2011 under a secret program launched by President George W. Bush, according to newly leaked documents. The data collection was first reported by the Guardian newspaper. An official confirmed its existence to the Associated Press. The NSA ended the program that collected email logs and timing, but not content, in 2011 because it did not do what was needed to stop terrorist attacks, according to the NSA's director. Gen. Keith Alexander, who also heads the U.S. Cyber Command, said all data was purged at...

Responding to reports that indicate Snowden may still be in Russia after missing a flight bound for Cuba on Monday morning, the South Carolina Republican said Russia’s cooperation will be a key indicator of the two countries’ relationship moving forward in a letter to Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

    MOSCOW, June 26 (RIA Novosti) - The whistleblowing organization WikiLeaks said on its Twitter feed on Wednesday that former CIA employee Edward Snowden, wanted by the United States for leaking state secrets, may be permanently stuck in Russia. “Cancelling Snowden's passport and bullying intermediary countries may keep Snowden permanently in Russia,” WikiLeaks said on its Twitter feed, but did not specify the names of intermediary countries. The United States has issued a warrant for Snowden’s arrest on charges of leaking details of a US surveillance program and cancelled his US passport, which Washington says should prevent him from traveling internationally....

    Hong Kong’s decision to allow Edward Snowden to board a flight to Russia “unquestionably has a negative impact on the U.S.-China relationship,” the White House said Monday. White House press secretary Jay Carney offered a blistering statement at his press briefing, saying the U.S. didn’t believe Hong Kong’s semi-autonomous government allowed the man accused of leaking national security secrets to the media on a technicality. “We see this as a setback in terms of their efforts to build mutual trust and our concerns are pretty clearly stated,” Carney said

    Imagine how much worse U.S./Russian relations might be right now if we hadn’t had that “reset.” Does this mean Snowden really did get on a plane to Russia? Because if it turns out he didn’t and the whole Russia-to-Cuba-to-Ecuador thing was just a ruse, then we should dismantle the NSA on principle. If they can’t locate America’s most wanted man, who can’t bear to be apart from his computer, after he’s absconded with a treasure trove of intelligence, then they’re not so useful that we need to keep this eye in the sky afloat.
