"Very Imminent" Glenn Greenwald Leak Still Not Posted 2 Days Later

A June 18th article ("How Secret Partners Expand NSA’s Surveillance Dragnet") by someone named Ryan Gallagher is the most recent posting.

I'm not saying or implying that this means anything about the validity fo Greenwald btw. It just seemed weird to me that Greenwald said "very imminent" as opposed to just "imminent". Now it's 2 days later and still nothing released.

Tonight at midnight!

Will this be the big one?

Midnight GMT? New York?

Google is government.

Some Names Named Story

Tweet didn't specify the time zone but I would assume somewhere in North America.

Let's Hope "Imminent" Means...

...AFTER the 4th of July empire-fest, when people are returning to some semblance of sober semi-reality and the news can have more of an impact.

I saw an interview where he stated he was receiving permission

from each person before publishing their names. Anyone who doesn't give their approval we won't know about. Kind of a shame but I understand why he's doing it.

Hey, Nystrom! Anybody contact you, yet?

How about you, JO4RP? Anyone here get contacted for your consent yet?

Not knocking the timing. Just not buying the reason given for it. I suspect something else is afoot and this info may be the antidote for it.

A while back Glenn said the release would coincide with July 4th

holiday. He said the grand finale would happen about the time the real fireworks are going off. I would be looking for the news around the 4th. It is usually a slow news period. I just hope the revelations are able to incense the average American. The previous ones don't seem to have done that.

"Perfect timing"

Release the news when not that many people are paying attention and while they're in a good mood. Them by that Monday their minds will be more on returning to work, helping distract them from the importance of what was released. Of course the average person will probably hear about the revelation but it will have already feel a little like old news by the time their focus is back on the real world. Plus I'm sure some other Obama scandal (or maybe war in Iraq) will be in the news by next week so it will all be glossed over.

Let's keep an eye out for what I've written here. If this turns out to be the case then I think it lends more credence to the "Greenwald is a phony" theory. Remember too that he's referred to this as his "grand finale" so this might be it from the Snowden leaks.

Very Imminent to you, not same for me

Imagine the time it takes to fact check and research all the REAL NEWS he's about to share. Takes months, "Very Imminent" in a process like that could really be two weeks.

I know he's spread the news when a TV watcher starts yacking about it in the lunch room. Until then, stay busy on making life better.

I'm giving Glen a break

I'm giving Glen a break too... but I'm still anxiously awaiting the list...

Beware the cult of "government"...

5 days now. "Very imminent" story still not posted

Hopefully his story comes out on Monday or Tuesday because, by Wednesday, a lot of people will be in July 4th weekend mode.

I Stand With Glenn

At this point I don't wish to question any of his moves. He has played this thing quite well so far.

As much as I want to see these names, I'm giving Glenn a

break - I didn't realize he/they were contacting each person in order to get permission to publish their name. Me, I'd list them all, but I understand he's trying to avoid criticism and maintain credibility by not doing a mass publication of the documents. That said, I still want to see a FULL list!!!

Still nothing posted

The June 18th article is still the latest posting on The Intercept. This is starting to get the feel of a Glenn Beck "huge story to be released tomorrow".

I'm a sitting here

drumming my fingers...

Yes this story has been

Yes this story has been teased and imminent since mid-May... Which really sucks cuz I want to read it! I do have a gut feeling it will be published July 4th.

It's Been Longer Than That

I guess the marketing is still getting out and working to build anticipation. I think it has been at least two weeks since I first heard the story teased.

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

Ah yes, very imminent in today's world

is like 3 seconds not 3 days. Well in historic terms it's still comfortably in the footprint.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Huh?

Imminent means "can occur at any moment". I would think that "very imminent" would mean that night or maybe the next morning. Even by historical standards

Is it confirmation the hillary photo is real?

So let us know how it is all supposed

to work out when you pull a Snowden or a Greenwald.

Okay, Kevin?

Since you're such an expert, just let us all know how it should play out.

Thanks.

I'm No Expert

Obviously you're referring to my post about Sibel Edmonds calling out the Snowden story as a psyop.

From the tone of your post, I get the feeling you're saying I'm a "loudmouth" or something along those lines. That was definitely not my intention. Please feel free to disagree w/ me but let me know why you disagree. I'm willing to consider all points though, of course, I reserve the right to agree or disagree w/ them. If I disagree, I will also hold myself to the "you have to explain why" standard.

It should play out where a whistleblower is called fake

In Sibel's recent Apathy roundtable, she said Edward is fake because he was on TV with Brian Williams and real whistleblowers don't get mainstream interviews. It seems she conveniently forgot her own past, unless she just admitted she's also fake.

Come on people, its obvious

Come on people, its obvious he isnt releasing things all at once because he is trying to squeeze all the milage he can out of it.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

or he is obviously waiting

or he is obviously waiting for the hole to get dug deep enough to drop the spied on names into into, where they can not climb out, and need to show their true colors (deny or justify). Another real possibility - the government is having conniption fits over the names and is desperately negotiation some or maybe all be eliminated from disclosure on national security grounds.
