The US spooks are on the defensive over escalating geopolitical tensions between America and Russia over Ukraine. This weekend, the leaders of the 6 or so US intelligence agencies are having to explain to their political masters why they are called “intelligence” given that they failed to foresee the Russian security measures that Moscow has deployed in Ukraine’s southern Crimean Peninsula over the past week.

democracynow – WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange addressed a major gathering of computer experts Monday at the Chaos Communication Congress in Hamburg, Germany, calling on them to join forces in resisting government intrusions on internet freedom and privacy.

The Guardian has published only one percent of the leaked documents it received from former NSA contractor and famed leaker Edward Snowden, the newspaper’s editor said Tuesday.

Alan Rusbridger, appearing before British Parliament, said the newspaper had not put lives at risk or harmed national security by publishing the leaked documents, the Associated Press reports. Rusbridger said Snowden leaked a total of about 58,000 files, the vast majority of which the paper has not, and will not, publish.

“I would not expect us to be publishing a huge amount more,” he said.

Rusbridger defended the Guardian’s role in publishing the leaked documents, which have spurred a fierce international debate about surveillance and espionage between countries, and he condemned what he termed “intimidation” against the newspaper by the UK government, saying that “to the rest of the world, it appears that press freedom itself is under attack in Britain.”

CTV recently published an article outlining statistics about Smart Phones.  A quick over view of the statistics mentioned:

Based on online surveys with 1,000 Canadians earlier this year, the report estimates that 56 per cent of adults were using a smartphone, up from 33 per cent in early 2012.

  • About eight in 10 smartphone owners said they don’t leave home without their mobile device. And two-thirds of them said they had used their phone every day in the past week.
  • About 35 per cent said they’d become so reliant on mobile connectivity that they’d give up TV before having to part with their smartphone.
  • About 78 per cent of the smartphone users said they connected to social media with their device and 52 per cent said they logged on daily.
  • About 75 per cent said they had streamed video on…

The head of the US National Security Agency is also the head of the US/NATO Cyber Command, a tool of war designed to wage war in what the architects call the “Fourth Space”. This in effect means every time you get on-line you are potentially entering a war zone. The recent events surrounding the attempted military aggression against Syria that was stopped by Russia’s adept diplomatic efforts and the granting of asylum to Edward Snowden have shown that the days of US domination of the world are coming to an end.

Business Insider published an article about the NSA data center being constructed in Bluffdale, Utah. The facility, being roughly 1 million square feet, will house a computing and data harvesting and long term data storage facility to be operational by October 2013. (Source)

The stated purpose of the facility is to “listen and decode all foreign communications of interest to the security of the United States.” But in light of the recent revelations of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, the data center under construction in Utah is far more likely a tool of the United States Government (and its global masters) to collect unimaginable amounts of data on Americans and eventually every human on earth.

In fact, as far back as the mid nineteen eighties, the NSA and other intelligences agencies created and controlled a secret computer monitoring operation in New Zealand…

The poachers – caught in the act – are now appointing themselves as the gamekeepers. Former CIA contractor Edward Snowden has performed an immense service to international public interest and democratic rights by exposing the “industrial scale” illegal spying operations of the American and British governments. The victims of this vast criminality against international laws and norms are the citizens of the world and every other government.

Edward Snowden, the U.S. leaker who’s been holed up so long inside the transit zone of a Moscow airport that reporters and pundits are drawing comparisons to The Terminal, the 2004 comedy-drama starring Tom Hanks, wants out.

After Russia insisted that Snowden could stay only on the condition that he muzzled himself and stopped “harming” the U.S, the whistle-blower organization WikiLeaks announced on July 2 that Snowden filed 21 requests for asylum around the world, signaling his intent to find a more permanent home.

It’s an interesting list (below, which we’ll update as more country statements come in). But after just mere hours, more than half the countries responded. Some gave a flat-out “no” (Brazil, India, Poland) while others said Snowden would have to physically walk onto their soil in order to properly file (Ecuador, Ireland, Norway). The rest are taking their time to reply.
