Edward Snowden: Life of a White Hero
My thread "Edward Snowden: Life of a White Hero" was disabled and sent down the black hole of history on Stormfront. I guess the Jewish Zionists don't like it publicized.


Edward Snowden: Life of a White Hero

A normal White heterosexual male who appreciated and stood up for White values of liberty, freedom, and the basic civil right of privacy.

Edward Snowden and his girlfriend Lindsey Mills.

Just a White couple who could no longer stand the lies and corruption of Jewish Totalitarian USA abuse of White civil rights. The basic human right to live your life with a decent expectation of privacy. Why do the Jew totalitarian terrorists keep following us Whites? Just leave us alone.Edward Snowden (Welsh) the man with morals who stood up and possibly saved Civilization.

A Surveillance Society is not a Civilized Society.


Sir Timothy John "Tim" Berners-Lee: Internet Founder Supports Snowden
Yes we know Edward Snowden will change the world with his stand for the U.S. Constitution. Yes.

The American public was at the breaking point. $17 Trillion in debt to pay for Jewish spying on White Americans. You need to recognize that the White person has morality, you can't pay us enough to destroy our own villages and people. We refuse to kill ourselves.

Edward Snowden ended the Police State in America. He is a Patriot. And yes, Patriots sleep well. Traitors who break the U.S. Constitution's 4th Amendment, do not. Just last week the creator of the internet, Sir Timothy John "Tim" Berners-Lee, spoke out about the (Jewish Zionist) Global totalitarian threat. He was just a normal guy who had the morals to say NO, and in that he spoke for 80 million Americans and became a Hero.

Sir Timothy John "Tim" Berners-Lee, OM, KBE, FRS, FREng, FRSA, also known as "TimBL," is a British computer scientist, best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web. The very inventor of the web you are using this hour, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, spoke out last week about the exact dangers Edward Snowden talked about. Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the web, spoke against NSA's Prism last week.
http://www.webfoundation.org/2013/06/web...-on-prism/

When the intelligensia are on the side of Good, then the World listens.

The feds pay $17 trillion of our debt to eavesdrop, threaten, terrorize, cower, the American people. It is a money and wage system that cannot go on. Even the creator of the Internet, Sir Tim Berners-Lee has spoken out about this failed politic model.
http://www.whiteheritage.org/forumdisplay.php?fid=10&page=5&sortby=views

Just last week Sir Tim Berners Lee was denouncing the NSA's overly broad Prism program, information that Edward Snowden gave as a gift to the world, much as Berners-Lee gave HTML and the Internet to the world.
http://www.whiteheritage.org/forumdisplay.php?fid=10&page=5&sortby=views

GIVING: The Internet to the world, and now the Totalitarian NSA's Prism program to the world.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee developed the Internet and HTML for state security. Then he later GAVE it to the world to maintain freedom. People of conscience work for the government, but when the government becomes totalitarian, they ask that the government work for the people.


It is true, it is a battle for the public mind, right here.

CIA agent Valerie Plame called Cheney the real traitor.

CIA mastermind Valerie Plame recruited and ran a CIA network of 100 agents. When Cheney and Libby outted her, all those hundred agents lives were put at risk.

Plame ripped into Cheney this last week.

Micah Zenko of the Council on Foreign Relations notes that Vermont senator Patrick Leahy has introduced legislation to review the Patriot Act, the 2001 law that expanded US government surveillance powers. One of the authors of the original act, Rep. James Sensenbrenner, wrote earlier this month that the law has been abused by government agents claiming ever-broader surveillance capabilities.

Leahy just introduced bill to review or sunset all Patriot Act authorities in June 2015. If interested in actual policy issues.

It's Official: Anatoly Kucherena delivers Asylum Papers to the FMS. Snowden has Applied for Asylum under Full Conditions in Russia.
Good News, Anatoly Kucherena speaks to the press. It's official. Tuesday the Russian Federal Migration Service received the updated Snowden asylum request.

Edward Snowden seeks temporary asylum in Russia | World news | The Guardian

"He's scared for his life, for his security," Snowden's lawyer Anatoly Kucherena told Russian state television, referring to US plans to prosecute Snowden.

Kucherena, a Kremlin-friendly lawyer, said he met Snowden for four hours at Sheremetyevo on Monday evening, and helped the US whistleblower complete the necessary documents to officially apply for asylum in Russia. Russia's federal migration service (FMS) said it received those documents on Tuesday.

"He's scared that he could be tortured or face the death penalty � that's how he answered questions posed to him by FMS officials," Kucherena said.

Vladimir Putin has vowed not to extradite Snowden to the US, but has twice said that he hopes the US whistleblower will leave Russia soon. Snowden has said he would like to travel to Latin America, where Venezuela, Nicaragua and Bolivia have offered him asylum.

"He arrived in our country without an invitation," a smiling Putin told students on Monday. "He didn't fly to us � he flew in transit to other countries. But only when it became known that he was in the air, our American partners, in effect, blocked him from flying further.

"They themselves scared all other countries � no one wants to take him and this way, they blocked him on our territory. That's the present we got for Christmas."

Snowden has applied for temporary asylum in Russia, a status granted for one year that then can be renewed on a yearly basis indefinitely, Kucherena said. The FMS has up to three months to deliver its decision on Snowden's application, he said.

A senior FMS official said that while his application was being considered, Snowden would remain inside Sheremtyevo or be moved to a government-run refugee shelter.

Despite official public statements to the contrary, speculation has been mounting inside Russia that the Kremlin would like to see Snowden remain in the country. That speculation grew after Snowden met a small group of Russian officials and representatives of international human rights groups last week.

Among those in attendance were Kucherina, who sits on the public chamber, a Kremlin advisory council; Vyacheslav Nikonov, a Kremlin-friendly MP; and Olga Kostina, a member of the public chamber and advisor to Russia's interior ministry, as well as a reported former advisor to the Federal Security Service, the main successor agency to the KGB.

Putin, a former KGB agent, said earlier this month that Snowden would have to agree to stop "bringing harm to our American partners" if he wanted to stay in Russia. Snowden subsequently withdrew an asylum request to Russia.

During his meeting last Friday, Snowden said he did not believe he was bringing harm to the US but was helping the American people with his revelations, participants said.

Former two-term GOP Senator Gordon Humphrey of New Hampshire emailed Edward Snowden yesterday [emphasis added]:

      "Mr. Snowden,

      Provided you have not leaked information that would put in harms way any intelligence agent, I believe you have done the right thing in exposing what I regard as massive violation of the United States Constitution.

      Having served in the United States Senate for twelve years as a member of the Foreign Relations Committee, the Armed Services Committee and the Judiciary Committee, I think I have a good grounding to reach my conclusion.

      I wish you well in your efforts to secure asylum and encourage you to persevere.

      Kindly acknowledge this message, so that I will know it reached you.

      Regards,

      Gordon J. Humphrey
      Former United States Senator

NSA warned to rein in surveillance as agency reveals even greater scope
NSA officials testify to angry House panel that agency can perform 'three-hop queries' through Americans' data and records

Wednesday 17 July 2013 15.19 EDT
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jul...NTCMP=SRCH

The National Security Agency revealed to an angry congressional panel on Wednesday that its analysis of phone records and online behavior goes exponentially beyond what it had previously disclosed.

Wednesday's hearing was the second major public congressional hearing about the NSA's surveillance activities since the Guardian and the Washington Post disclosed some of them in early June. Unlike the previous hearing on June 18 before the House intelligence committee, members of the House judiciary committee aggressively questioned senior officials from the NSA, FBI, Justice Department and Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

One senior member of the panel, congressman James Sensenbrenner, the author of the 2001 Patriot Act, warned the officials that unless they rein in the scope of their surveillance on Americans' phone records, "There are not the votes in the House of Representatives" to renew the provision after its 2015 expiration.

"You're going to lose it entirely," Sensenbrenner said.

XKeyscore: NSA tool collects 'nearly everything a user does on the internet'

• XKeyscore gives 'widest-reaching' collection of online data
• NSA analysts require no prior authorization for searches
• Sweeps up emails, social media activity and browsing history
• NSA's XKeyscore program – read one of the presentations.

[Image: KS3edit2-001.jpg]



One presentation claims the XKeyscore program covers 'nearly everything a typical user does on the internet'

[Image: KS55edit-001.jpg]


[Image: XKeyscore-map-010.jpg]


A top secret National Security Agency program allows analysts to search with no prior authorization through vast databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals, according to documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The NSA boasts in training materials that the program, called XKeyscore, is its "widest-reaching" system for developing intelligence from the internet.

The latest revelations will add to the intense public and congressional debate around the extent of NSA surveillance programs. They come as senior intelligence officials testify to the Senate judiciary committee on Wednesday, releasing classified documents in response to the Guardian's earlier stories on bulk collection of phone records and Fisa surveillance court oversight.

The files shed light on one of Snowden's most controversial statements, made in his first video interview published by the Guardian on June 10.

"I, sitting at my desk," said Snowden, could "wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant, to a federal judge or even the president, if I had a personal email".

US officials vehemently denied this specific claim. Mike Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee, said of Snowden's assertion: "He's lying. It's impossible for him to do what he was saying he could do."

But training materials for XKeyscore detail how analysts can use it and other systems to mine enormous agency databases by filling in a simple on-screen form giving only a broad justification for the search. The request is not reviewed by a court or any NSA personnel before it is processed.

[Image: KS8-001.jpg]


XKeyscore, the documents boast, is the NSA's "widest reaching" system developing intelligence from computer networks – what the agency calls Digital Network Intelligence (DNI). One presentation claims the program covers "nearly everything a typical user does on the internet", including the content of emails, websites visited and searches, as well as their metadata.

Analysts can also use XKeyscore and other NSA systems to obtain ongoing "real-time" interception of an individual's internet activity.

Under US law, the NSA is required to obtain an individualized Fisa warrant only if the target of their surveillance is a 'US person', though no such warrant is required for intercepting the communications of Americans with foreign targets. But XKeyscore provides the technological capability, if not the legal authority, to target even US persons for extensive electronic surveillance without a warrant provided that some identifying information, such as their email or IP address, is known to the analyst

Alex Luhn has been speaking to Snowden's lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, who told him the whistleblower had been reading Russian literature, including Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, and learning the Russian language. Kucherena said the circumstances were similar to “house arrest, only not at home,” noting the psychological pressures of remaining confined indoors in a legal no man's land: I wouldn't have held out for 24 hours with him in the airport. What is the transit zone? It's a sterile zone. There are constant loudspeaker announcements every day, 'A flight from Washington has arrived,' 'A flight from London has arrived,' 'A flight from Barcelona has arrived.' I heard them for hours when I was there. If a person is there indefinitely, it can drive him to psychosis. He also talked about Snowden's motives and convictions:
On the inside, Edward is absolutely independent, he absolutely follows his convictions. As for the reaction, he is convinced and genuinely believes he did it first of all so that Americans and all people would find out that they are spying on us.
We'll have the full story from Alec up shortly.

WikiLeaks has published comments by Edward Snowden. The whistleblower said:

      Over the past eight weeks we have seen the Obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law, but in the end the law is winning. I thank the Russian Federation for granting me asylum in accordance with its laws and international obligations.

They headed off in a taxi to a "secure, confidential place", the Wikileaks said.

5.05pm BST


In its statement WikiLeaks said Snowden had left the airport with WikiLeaks adviser Sarah Harrison, who has accompanied him at all times "to protect his safety and security". They headed off in a taxi to a "secure, confidential place", the organisation said.

WikiLeaks said the Russian certificate of temporary asylum allowed Snowden to live in and travel around Russia for one year. "He can now plan his next steps in safety," the organisation said.

The organisation also sheds light on why Snowden did not immediately depart for Cuba when he arrived in Moscow, as had been expected:

      Mr Snowden and Ms Harrison have been staying in the airport for almost six weeks, having landed on an Aeroflot flight from Hong Kong on the 23rd June. They had been booked on a connecting flight the following day. Mr Snowden intended to request asylum in Latin America. However, after Mr Snowden’s departure was made public, the United States government cancelled his passport, which rendered onward travel impossible.



The statement added that although Snowden has accepted Venezuela's offer of asylum "ultimately US interference has, at least for the time being, prevented its practical acceptance".

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, said:

      This is another victory in the fight against Obama’s war on whistleblowers. This battle has been won, but the war continues. The United States can no longer continue the surveillance of world citizens and its digital colonization of sovereign nations. The public will no longer stand for it. Whistleblowers will continue to appear until the government abides by its own laws and rhetoric.

Proposed reforms to the secretive foreign intelligence surveillance court (usually known as the Fisa court)


5.15pm BST


The fallout from Edward Snowden's disclosures continue. On Capitol Hill in Washington, Senator Richard Blumenthal, of the Senate judiciary committee, is launching proposed reforms to the secretive foreign intelligence surveillance court (usually known as the Fisa court) today, along with Senator Ron Wyden, of Oregon, and Senator Tom Udall, of Colorado.

You can watch the announcement live here.

The Fisa court grants the legal authorities to secret surveillance programs run by the National Security Agency, some of which have been revealed by Snowden's leaks.

Orders issued by the court are secret and are rarely published. The court is non-adversarial: the government presents its case, and the judge (almost always) grants the order.

At the press conference. Blumenthal says the Fisa court is an "anomaly" in an open and democratic government

The senators are proposing "a special advocate whose client will be the constitution".

"The idea of the special advocate is one that should appeal on a bi-partisan basis," Blumenthal says – we'll see about that – because "decisions are made better when both sides of the argument are represented".

The special advocate would raise independent questions about the government's case.


http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/au...rport-live



5.21pm BST
Senator Udall takes to the lectern.
It's "impossible to judge" whether decisions being taken are constitutional "when we have a secret programme overseen by a secret judge making secret decisions".
He says there is concern when you have "only 11 out of 34,000 requests turned down by the FISA court".

"The reform effort is going to be a difficult one," Udall says, "But i think "we're going to be able to get this done for the American people."

Email monitoring

In a second Guardian interview in June, Snowden elaborated on his statement about being able to read any individual's email if he had their email address. He said the claim was based in part on the email search capabilities of XKeyscore, which Snowden says he was authorized to use while working as a Booz Allen contractor for the NSA.

One top-secret document describes how the program "searches within bodies of emails, webpages and documents", including the "To, From, CC, BCC lines" and the 'Contact Us' pages on websites".

To search for emails, an analyst using XKS enters the individual's email address into a simple online search form, along with the "justification" for the search and the time period for which the emails are sought.

[Image: KS2-001.jpg]

[Image: KS3edit2-001.jpg]


The analyst then selects which of those returned emails they want to read by opening them in NSA reading software.

The system is similar to the way in which NSA analysts generally can intercept the communications of anyone they select, including, as one NSA document put it, "communications that transit the United States and communications that terminate in the United States".

One document, a top secret 2010 guide describing the training received by NSA analysts for general surveillance under the Fisa Amendments Act of 2008, explains that analysts can begin surveillance on anyone by clicking a few simple pull-down menus designed to provide both legal and targeting justifications. Once options on the pull-down menus are selected, their target is marked for electronic surveillance and the analyst is able to review the content of their communications:

Beyond emails, the XKeyscore system allows analysts to monitor a virtually unlimited array of other internet activities, including those within social media.

An NSA tool called DNI Presenter, used to read the content of stored emails, also enables an analyst using XKeyscore to read the content of Facebook chats or private messages.

An analyst can monitor such Facebook chats by entering the Facebook user name and a date range into a simple search screen.

Analysts can search for internet browsing activities using a wide range of information, including search terms entered by the user or the websites viewed.


Legal v technical restrictions

While the Fisa Amendments Act of 2008 requires an individualized warrant for the targeting of US persons, NSA analysts are permitted to intercept the communications of such individuals without a warrant if they are in contact with one of the NSA's foreign targets.

The ACLU's deputy legal director, Jameel Jaffer, told the Guardian last month that national security officials expressly said that a primary purpose of the new law was to enable them to collect large amounts of Americans' communications without individualized warrants.

"The government doesn't need to 'target' Americans in order to collect huge volumes of their communications," said Jaffer. "The government inevitably sweeps up the communications of many Americans" when targeting foreign nationals for surveillance.

An example is provided by one XKeyscore document showing an NSA target in Tehran communicating with people in Frankfurt, Amsterdam and New York.

In recent years, the NSA has attempted to segregate exclusively domestic US communications in separate databases. But even NSA documents acknowledge that such efforts are imperfect, as even purely domestic communications can travel on foreign systems, and NSA tools are sometimes unable to identify the national origins of communications.

Moreover, all communications between Americans and someone on foreign soil are included in the same databases as foreign-to-foreign communications, making them readily searchable without warrants.

Some searches conducted by NSA analysts are periodically reviewed by their supervisors within the NSA. "It's very rare to be questioned on our searches," Snowden told the Guardian in June, "and even when we are, it's usually along the lines of: 'let's bulk up the justification'."

In a letter this week to senator Ron Wyden, director of national intelligence James Clapper acknowledged that NSA analysts have exceeded even legal limits as interpreted by the NSA in domestic surveillance.

Acknowledging what he called "a number of compliance problems", Clapper attributed them to "human error" or "highly sophisticated technology issues" rather than "bad faith".

However, Wyden said on the Senate floor on Tuesday: "These violations are more serious than those stated by the intelligence community, and are troubling."

In a statement to the Guardian, the NSA said: "NSA's activities are focused and specifically deployed against – and only against – legitimate foreign intelligence targets in response to requirements that our leaders need for information necessary to protect our nation and its interests.

"XKeyscore is used as a part of NSA's lawful foreign signals intelligence collection system.

"Allegations of widespread, unchecked analyst access to NSA collection data are simply not true. Access to XKeyscore, as well as all of NSA's analytic tools, is limited to only those personnel who require access for their assigned tasks … In addition, there are multiple technical, manual and supervisory checks and balances within the system to prevent deliberate misuse from occurring."

"Every search by an NSA analyst is fully auditable, to ensure that they are proper and within the law.

"These types of programs allow us to collect the information that enables us to perform our missions successfully – to defend the nation and to protect US and allied troops abroad."
