(New) CNN Greenwald Interview: The REAL focus should BESubmitted by goldenequity on Tue, 06/11/2013 - 07:05
Q: What's your response to (NSA Director) Clapper's 'NO' statement (under Oath) to Senator Wyden's question (on 'wiretapping American phone calls)?
A: (Greenwald) "The REAL focus should be:
(1) What the NSA is doing in total secrecy...
(2) and WHETHER OR NOT they've been truthful with the U.S. congress..."
Gov't Lie #1
"and THAT ANSWER that he just gave, that the NSA is not 'wittingly' collecting data on millions of Americans...WE KNOW TO BE AN OUTRIGHT FALSEHOOD...
last week we published a document that demonstates that the Obama administration has been going to the secret FISA court every 3 months and ASKING FOR AND OBTAINING ALL PHONE RECORDS FOR ALL AMERICANS for every call they make... Internationally and Locally without any concern with whether or not the PEOPLE, on whom they're collecting this data, have engaged in any wrongdoing."
Govt Lie #2
"I would also add that the Senate Intelligence Agency has REPEATEDLY ASKED the NSA to give a 'rough estimate' on approximately how many Americans are being spied upon, in terms of their telephone calls and their email exchanges, and the NSA has continuously said:
"WE ARE INCAPABLE OF PROVIDING THAT KIND OF AN ASSESSMENT"
and yet on Friday we published documents from their program 'Boundless Informant' that provides EXTREMELY detailed metrics... with GREAT mathmatical exactitude, about EXACTLY how many communications they're intercepting... 3 billion every day... and even indicates from which country the data is originating."
More Lying #3
Silicon Valley Tech giants are jointly DENYING any collusion with NSA.
Greenwald response is:
The NSA ITSELF has boasted of having SERVER access to ALL of them... ALL Techs deny it, and this 'discrepancy' demands PUBLIC investigation/scrutiny.
Answer: Plausible deniability is firmly in place (which ONLY works till it doesn't.)
According to Bill Binney, an EX NSA operations head... The REAL answer may be in the accessing/managing HARDWARE itself called NARUS.
