Greenwald on Colbert: We Will Reveal Who Exactly the NSA is Spying On

Glenn Greenwald visited Colbert last night. At the end of Pt.2, he reveals the next "biggest" story (in 4-8 weeks) will be on exactly who the NSA is spying on. Whether it be political dissidents, critics of US foreign policy, or actually terrorists.

I'm taking a wild guess that the name "Ron Paul" will pop up somewhere when the next truth is revealed. Great interview.

Apparently, this is that last story which has now been published:

Meet the Muslim-American Leaders the FBI and NSA Have Been Spying On

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

I can only hope The Daily Paul is the #1 NSA target...

just think of the messages we can send them. It would be fun.

Is this real or are they just

Is this real or are they just revealing it to make us aware and accepting of it all? Do they plan to stop collecting our data now? My guess is probably not.

But about myself I will not boast, except as it concerns my weaknesses (2 Cor 12:5). Let the unbelievers seek praise from each other; I wish that which is from God alone.

Is What Real?

Of course what's being reported is real. The Statists threw a hissy fit and trapped Snowden in Russia--I rather imagine that many of them had daydreams of catching the "traitor" (though they really should read the Constitution before misusing the word), without stopping to think about the real issues of possible NSA wrongdoing.

I also imagine that what the press will reveal is going to be similar to what was revealed about J. Edgar Hoover's use of the FBI, and involve the names of famous people and politicians. It will be a big story because it will be domestic spying regardless of politics, plus spying for political purposes.

We've seen people who have access to this type of information use their access for everything from idle curiosity to revenge, as when hospital workers sell info to the tabloids about a patient, or cops check up on ex-spouses. The bureaucrats at the NSA are no different, and they probably wanted to know who to bet on in the Superbowl just like regular people (or as shown on recent episodes of The Good Wife, for fun). This is human nature.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

I know - something does not

I know - something does not seem right with this Snowden/Greenwald thing. Is it just to desensitize us. There has to be a little "drip" of some conversation that Snowden has that exposes drone use, Fast & Furious, implicates someone about Benghazi, something - please. Conversations from Senators, Judges, State Dept., collected and they can't put Eric Holder behind bars? I hope it is what it appears to be, but something is not right.

Okay, I've seen the video, it's great, but

it's start playing automatically every time I hit home and it's now become annoying. Is there a way to turn off the auto play? I usually read dozens of topics each day and I really don't want to hear this dozens of times, everyday. Thanks.

Guess who the prime US targets are for NSA surveillance

Does your pattern of "internet behavior" expose you to information regarding the crimes of corporations and the state (but I repeat myself) on a regular basis ?

Do you participate in discussions on comment sections on articles and in online forums regarding the same?

At the very least - do you show any signs that you are actively aware of any of these things and are not completely apathetic and/or occupying yourself with trivialities and superficial activities online?

Smile for the camera people.

Did anyone watch the PBS Frontline special last night?

It was part one of "United States of Secrets". It started with Greenwald talking about Snowden and then how Chaney's attorney wrote the legislation for additions to the Patriot Act. It blasted Obama for being nothing more than bush2. Also, went into the whole mess with Drake and others for whistleblowing.


with all that's going on between Russia and the US we can at least breath easy and assume that Putin will continue to protect Snowden.

I really worry about Glen though

I cant watch it!

Im in Australia . . . :(

Ill have to give it a go.

awesome interview! Colbert

awesome interview! Colbert couldn't get anything by him. That was like a perfect game of tennis or racquetball.

...or softball. Colbert is

...or softball. Colbert is completely in Greenwald's court. The questions were only antagonistic from a comedic perspective.

I really dont like it when Greenwald

is using this to make a buck....Put it out there and lets be done with it.

I Respectfully Disagree

1) There isn't enough money in the world to reward this man sufficiently.
2) As libertarians we should applaud true capitalism and its profit motive at every turn.
3) He's releasing it piecemeal so as to do it responsibly, as a journalist should.
4) He's also releasing it piecemeal to play the NSA for fools and expose them as liars. He lets them lie (think Clapper) and then proves they were lying. If he released it all at once, he could never reveal their lying ways in this manner.

you can thank Senator Wyden for setting up Clapper

in that big lie



kind people rock

With the access that Snowden

With the access that Snowden had, there has to be more than the "government was spying on us". Please reveal something that is a game changer.



You win that part of the arguement :)


OK 'Shill for the State' Colbert, I'll concede that point...and only that point

I love the Colbert Report,

I love the Colbert Report, everyone should watch the show more often!

Would you believe: Members of the Legislature

Members of the Executive, Members of the Judiciary?

Good thing about Greenwald

is he doesn't feel the need to kiss his boyfriend whenever the camera is pointed his direction.

Wherever The Government Goes, The Constitution Goes

That's according to the great Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Ergot, at least from the U.S. government, the rest of the world does indeed have privacy rights.

Question: Why would Greenwald

Why would Greenwald wait 4 -8 weeks to release the info? Why make this announcement today? It is risky to make the announcement and then wait to publish. The government may take action and blackmail or intimidate Greenwald once they know this is going to happen.

Could he be negotiating the list that will be published? In other words, could Greewald be looking for some concessions so that he does not publish certain names?

Anybody has insights?


Timing, say June 6th-10th

To coincide with the anniversary of when the first story broke a year ago/when Edward Snowden was revealed as Glenn's source. Glenn's also busy with promoting the book No Place to Hide. I just really hope that Glenn smashes the N.S.A. & Obama administration hard with the upcoming information.
