White House: U.S. had no role in detention of Greenwald's partner

The United States was not involved in the detention of David Miranda, the partner of journalist Glenn Greenwald, but was told it was likely that the Brazilian citizen would be stopped at London's Heathrow Airport, the White House said Monday.

"This is a decision that they made on their own and not at the request of the United States," White House principal deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said.

Which City Has The Most Surveillance Cameras Per Capita?

Just curious. Anyone know the answer?

Sometimes I actually struggle at the thought that the people in this nation cannot find Sudan on a map, and yet assume that D.C. controls the ENTIRE WORLD. No one remembers the joint MI6/CIA overthrow of Mossadech in Iran in 1953 (ARAMCO). CASE IN POINT: Mutually Assured Global Domination...

OBAMA is obviously the banksters' lapdog. The REAL headquarters of the banksters are in the City Of London. this SAME CITY has all those 'surveillance cameras' (as we have, but in the electronic realm).

It IS a distinct possibility that those in The City are directing the TIRADE against Snowden for revealing this aspect of CONTROL; just as much a possibility as the D.C. people directing London to go after Greenwald's gay lover (and confiscate electronic data storage held on his person).

The limeys did the Concorde, and we did the Space Shuttle (both, by now, bygone memories of a past glory). They do the CAMERAS and WE do the 'METADATA STORAGE', as we both move in to the New World Order. NEITHER 'government' is 'officially cooperating'. Tacit agreements and mutual interests in TOTAL CONTROL of their populaces assure that one does what the other wishes (and vice-versa).

How about the 'BAILOUTS' where all those hundreds of billions and trillions of dollars were funneled MOSTLY to 'offshore' banks, headquartered in the 'cooperating countries' (like the City Of London)???

Did the White House direct the 'file confiscation'?
THAT is NOT a relevant question.

In our present upside down world, this means that they did!

Clinton: What difference does it make.

At this point I guess they figure they might as well keep lying

Because if even one of their public statements turned out to be true, people might think something's wrong and get suspicious.

Must be some other government

Must be some other government calling for his extradition and calling him a traitor then.....my mistake

Given what we know about government

the truth is they meant to black box him on ice with 45 live pelicans and 3 cases of Veuve Cliquot and have him delivered to a rubber room full of adult toys but somehow.....

they lost track of the pelicans, mission cover was blow so they let the royalists play with him. And the adult toys.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

...now to New York for breaking news...

The New York City port authority said today, through its spokeman Sham McGulliblestein, that due to massive budgetary shortfalls the Port Authority will be selling off for privatization, some of its assets. "First on the auction block will be New York's iconic Brooklyn Bridge and the opening bid reserve will be $50.00 with a participatory bidders deposit of $150.00"' McGulliblestein said.

For interested bidders, deposts can be sent to Brooklyn Bridge c/o FedupExpression, 911 Bullshit Street, Baltimore, MD 21201. Please make all checks payable to FedupExpression...

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

Whew, good thing they cleared

Whew, good thing they cleared that up for us. Thank God we live in a country where the government never lies to the people.

Excellent use of the sarcasm tag. Good show.
