  • NSA Whistleblower: NSA Spying On – and Blackmailing – Top Government Officials and Military Officers

    NSA whistleblower Russel Tice – a key source in the 2005 New York Times report that blew the lid off the Bush administration’s use of warrantless wiretapping – told Peter B. Collins on Boiling Frogs Post (the website of FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds): Tice: Okay. They went after–and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things–they went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the–and judicial. But they went...

  • Leaked NSA Doc Says It Can Collect And Keep Your Encrypted Data

    06/20/2013 8:48:59 PM PDT · by chessplayer · 21 replies
    ...The simple fact that the data is encrypted and that the NSA wants to crack it may be enough to let the agency keep it indefinitely. ...In other words, privacy advocates may be facing a nasty Catch-22: Fail to encrypt your communications, and they’re vulnerable to any eavesdropper’s surveillance. But encrypt them, and they become legally subject to eavesdropping by the most powerful surveillance agency in the world.

    WASHINGTON — A federal grand jury investigating leaks of classified information has summoned a former National Security Agency officer who says he talked to reporters about the agency's warrantless eavesdropping program. Russell Tice received a subpoena to testify next Wednesday to a grand jury that is meeting in Alexandria, Va. The subpoena was posted Friday on a Web site run by a whistleblowers' group to which Tice belongs. "The grand jury is conducting an investigation of possible violations of federal criminal laws involving the unauthorized disclosure of classified information," according to a letter that accompanied the subpoena.

    When we last tuned in on July 25th, Russell Tice - a disgruntled ex-NSA staffer was subpoenaed to appear before the GJ, but balked when he found out just how rigorous the DOJ is perusing the leakers. So what has been going on in the meantime? According to sources the initial focus of the GJ is towards the media involvement, with special emphasis on who in our Government, specifically within the IC, or (as many believe via their sources) from the Senate Intelligence Committee via a staffer, is leaking classified information.

    A former NSA employee said Tuesday there is another ongoing top-secret surveillance program that might have violated millions of Americans' Constitutional rights. Russell D. Tice told the House Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations he has concerns about a "special access" electronic surveillance program that he characterized as far more wide-ranging than the warrentless wiretapping recently exposed by the New York Times but he is forbidden from discussing the program with Congress. Tice said he believes it violates the Constitution's protection against unlawful search and seizures but has no way of sharing the information without...

    Five current and former National Security Agency (NSA) employees have told Cybercast News Service that the agency frequently retaliates against whistleblowers by falsely labeling them "delusional," "paranoid" or "psychotic." The intimidation tactics are allegedly used to protect powerful superiors who might be incriminated by damaging information, the whistleblowers say. They also point to a climate of fear that now pervades the agency. Critics warn that because some employees blew the whistle on alleged foreign espionage and criminal activity, the "psychiatric abuse" and subsequent firings are undermining national security. A spokesman for the NSA declined to comment about the allegations contained...

    In December, New York Times reporters James Risen and Eric Lichtblau commandeered the news cycle with the revelation that President Bush had approved a program of warrantless wiretaps of domestic-to-international communications by the super-secretive National Security Agency. Days later, they disclosed that the NSA's electronic eavesdropping may have been far more extensive than initial reports suggested, involving the harvesting of enormous volumes of telcommunications data for analysis. One of their sources was former NSA insider Russell Tice, who earlier this week told ABC News that the communications of millions of Americans might have been vacuumed up in one of a...
