Network Hygiene? Holy Fuckeroo!
The Army admitted Thursday to not only restricting access to The Guardian news website at the Presidio of Monterey, as reported in Thursday's Herald, but Armywide.
Presidio employees said the site had been blocked since The Guardian broke several stories on data collection by the National Security Agency.
Gordon Van Vleet, an Arizona-based spokesman for the Army Network Enterprise Technology Command, or NETCOM, said in an email the Army is filtering "some access to press coverage and online content about the NSA leaks."
He wrote it is routine for the Department of Defense to take preventative "network hygiene" measures to mitigate unauthorized disclosures of classified information.

Timing?Harper's Gag Orders Sweep While Canadians Sleep
But it's not like the government doesn't want to hear from you on this one.
You have until July 8 to send any helpful hints or suggestions you might have for what they can do with this order, according to The Gazette.
Just don't try to email them. It's snail mail or fax only for this consultation, which just goes to show you just how much they value your input.

Wow, they stole his partner David's laptop. Right from their home in Rio. UnF'ingbelievable.


If you don't think that the PTB are not all in it together, then your stupid. They all have backed off from Snowden. A pox on you U.S.

I'm reading the Guardian updates on the airspace denials from EU countries for Bolivian President Morales, all because U.S. admin thought Snowden might be on the plane when it left Russia. This is insane. But one thing is very clear now, these countries are a joke, they do not represent their citizens and absolutely do not represent their interests. Italy/France/Portugal has now cleared airspace for Morales, still waiting on Spain. Mind you, those countries only gave permission AFTER it was declared Snowden not on plane. U.S. is truly the laughing stock of the world.

I hope Snowden has already been given asylum and has already left the Moscow airport and taken shelter, and all this US airspace kidnapping is all for naught. It will have served an important purpose: to show the world that the USA is the biggest threat to peace and freedom on the  planet.

Clapper lied to Congress. No fall out. If members of Congress and the Senate no longer uphold their oath, then there has been a coup d'etat, no? It's patently obvious the the 'War on Terror' was a smoke screen for building an intricate surveillance apparatus for US hegemony. Putin saying Snowden can stay but only if he no longer releases anymore NSA data, that's just f'ing weird, like he is part of the Big NWO agenda. Glenn Greenwald wraps it all up.

I'm going out to the fire pit on the lakefront to burn 8 years worth of useless paper, I'm going to make a ritual of it w/ some other women who also have decided to burn some papers. Should be an interesting conversation and it beats reading FB where everyone thinks their leaders are 'normal' and not serial liars.

NONE DARE CALL IT FASCISM: HOW THE NSA HAS (ALREADY) PRIVATIZED TYRANNY

Quote
What’s the biggest secret exposed by Snowden so far? .....the National Security Agency just let a bunch of freelance contractors more or less run wild with unlimited access to the most sensitive conceivable data of any and every US citizen along with a goodly portion of communications of non-US residents as well.


                             snip


Booz Allen Hamilton has been growing their government consulting business to National Security agencies by leaps and bounds, and their financial consulting arm has been doing pretty good too.


                              snip


So doesn’t this strike you as somewhat “funny”? Isn’t this some major league conflict of interest? On the one hand, BAH has been clearly given carte blanche to listen in on anything and everything, and they also happen to be in the financial “consulting” business. Would BAH ever take a significant financial position based on, oh let’s say, very privileged information?

And it only took 12 years to build it using the 'war on terror' trope. Fascism indeed.

How Microsoft handed the keys to NSA   
 
Teamsport!


Giving them access even before releasing programs must have cut down on a lot of unnecessary encryption work.

Some interesting tidbits re surveillance of everything on the whole planet and some people in particular.
Email Company Reportedly Used By Edward Snowden Shuts Down Rather Than Hand Data Over To Feds  (wonder if servers have already been seized?)
http://www.forbes.com/sites/kashmirhill/2013/08/08/email-company-reportedly-used-by-edward-snowden-shuts-down-rather-than-hand-data-over-to-feds/


Lavabit’s website now displays a message about the shutdown, available in full below, along with a request for help paying the legal bill to fight the government in court.
“I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit,” writes Levison. “After significant soul searching, I have decided to suspend operations.”

Silent Circle follows suits before servers can be seized.

Obama is going to visit Sweden during G20 (Sept.) - no doubt to pressure them to break international law, Carney has said nothing to do with Assange, total b.s. pressure stepping up. Hague goes end of August i guess to set things up. http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/obama-visit-to-sweden-will-be-first-ever-bilateral-one-by-a-us-president/2013/08/07/3b6c83dc-ff96-11e2-8294-0ee5075b840d_story.html
Obama had a secret meeting with the high teck ceo's to talk surveillance.

This could go in other threads, but this is about the NSA. Today at the UN Dilma had some more words for Obama (gawd I love it when a women tells him off)


"The arguments that the illegal interception of information and data aims at protecting nations against terrorism cannot be sustained. Brazil, Mr President, knows how to protect itself. We reject, fight and do not harbour terrorist groups," Rousseff said.


http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/sep/24/un-general-assembly-obama-rouhani-rousseff-live


Hear that Mr. Exceptional?


Speaking of the UN the sky is falling, Iran's Rouhani had a meeting with IMF bag lady, LaGarde (sanctions are killing them) oops - http://www.cnbc.com/id/101059555
