This was my question to you:



Why do you feel that NBC chose to edit out that segment specifically? Do you feel that is significant in any way? - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...


You chose to completely ignore it, and instead focus on the usage of the word "censor" in my thread title. That is a red herring. You are distracting from the real issue, which is that NBC did not include this very interesting segment in their prime time airing of the Snowden interview. Now you are saying they didn't include much of the interview in the first place, so it's irrelevant. That is at least somewhat of an answer to my question, and would seem to indicate you feel this has no significance at all.

I will have to agree to disagree with you on that last point.

I feel that Edward Snowden is a traitor, and should be brought back to the United States and put on trial.

None of the things he says are credible. That's why he bolted and went to Russia.

I find it really sad that the media laps up all his lies, and gives him a forum to spout utter crap.


Utter Crap ?

Most of the things he said were true.

I don't like how he did it. But, to say the Media gives him a forum ?

It might be the one thing some media did right in years.

Our Founding Fathers would consider him a hero.

I didn't to ignore it, I said ask NBC.

You comprehension skills are severely lacking..

It's not censored if it's readily available to see.

Now you are resorting to ad hominem and attacking me personally? Very mature.

If they're facts, they're not attacks.

I bring a fact, you call it a red herring, that would suggest a lack in comprehension.

This!

Thank you for expressing that. Snowden in history will be deemed a true patriot. He gave up his life to make the world know that we were spying on everyone. If I ever had the money, I will contribute to make a statue of him in front of the White House.

I had my suspicions that snowden was controlled opposition, now I am pretty sure. He appears to be trying to reinforce the "meme" that 9/11 was something the US had no hand in, that was all terrorists from Afghanistan, Iraq or wherever, but had all the information to circumvent the event. Sorry, I don't buy that. If snowden had of said that the Bush administration could have called off the demolition of the WTC towers, that I would buy.

In either situation the executive/administration is a fault, people died on 9/11 and thereafter, either by negligence or misadventure at the hands of the US government.

Cheers - Dave

Of course, a rational person knows that a deleted segment on youtube might grab 40,000 views. The segment aired on public TV might catch several billion people, internationally. Yes it was cut as an act of government ordered censorship.

What about the other 3 hours that were cut?

Pretty sure everything he leaked is credible, which is why he is wanted by the government of the USA. If it was BS then I think that he would not have had to leave the country.

That is an interesting take on the situation. I'm not sure I would agree, however. I don't necessarily see Snowden as reinforcing the official story. I actually view his comments as subtly hinting that the government knew it was coming, and deliberately chose not to act. He didn't come right out and say it in so many words, but he definitely indicated it was his opinion the U.S was aware of the plot. The other thing I find interesting about his comments is that he seemed to think additional surveillance measures implemented as a result of 9/11 have actually done more to damage the abilities of counter-terrorist agencies than they have to help them. At least that is how I interpreted his comments about the haystacks, and heaping more hay on them instead of understanding the stacks in the first place.

I wouldn't be so quick to pin Snowden as being supportive of the OS, simply because he didn't come out and say the towers were brought down with controlled demolition. Even by implying the government failed to act to stop the attacks, he is still standing on the side of truth (imo). No matter what a person thinks about the events of that day, one thing is certain and is undeniable by ALL sides of the argument: The U.S government failed to prevent 9/11. Whether or not that failure was intentional is open to debate (I believe it was), and even if it wasn't, why wasn't anyone held accountable for those failures?

I'm thinking that Snowden believes/knows 9/11 was "an inside job" but to say it directly like that would turn probable followers away from him. He's best to keep this opinion to himself IMO.

Yeah, pretty much he's saying that gathering too much information is useless, that agencies and law enforcement are all that we need to keep security without loosing too much liberty. I believe he is right.

Snowden also reveals that the U.S. had all of the intelligence regarding the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 but we unable to connect the dots.




NBC censored out segments concerning 9/11 because it could affect Congressional hearings and investigations.

Now somebody got the "footage" and all Hell will break loose.

As the OP said.Snowden can't come right out and say it was an inside job.That would be playing right into the TPTB's hands he said that and the press and everyone else would use it as proof that he's nuts.It's better to present this to the public as a way to get them to look into it themselves.Think about it.A few people watch that clip and they start seeing everything the IC missed that would get them to start wondering.We all know despite all the attempts to get the public to either buy the OS or what I call the "oops/turf wars" theory stuff like Snowden's interview shows otherwise.I agree with what he said about putting more hay on the haystack increased surveillance has not worked.Terrorism is a law enforcement/military problem one that can be dealt with proven methods.

from Benswann.com:

In the allegedly censored clip, Snowden also reveals that the U.S. had all of the intelligence regarding the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001 but we unable to connect the dots.
“You know this is a key question that the 9/11 commission considered, and what they found in the postmortem when they looked at all the classified intelligence from all the different intelligence agencies, they found that we had all of the information we needed as an intelligence community, as a classified sector, as the national defense of the United States, to detect this plot,” Snowden said.
“We actually had records of the phone calls from the United States and out. The CIA knew who these guys were. The problem was not that we weren’t collecting information, it wasn’t that we didn’t have enough dots, it wasn’t that we didn’t have a haystack, it was that we did not understand the haystack that we had.”

Why did NBC not air this part of the interview? Is there any "new" information we can gleen from Snowdens remarks?


Maybe not new information, just confirmation that US intelligence services are not sufficiently competent to defend US soil? The segment was cut so as to not harm national confidence in the government and it's agencies?

If you believe this then I believe that YOU are a shill... If what he says is not credible, then why would they be bothered huh? Hahahah
I don't see them denying any of it! They say they want him for leaking US secrets! So they are admitting it boyo...

Plenty of people make all sorts of wild claims right in the US. Alex jones for example... Dont see the US gov after him... Do you????

EDIT: See the difference between snowdon and Alex is Snowdon actually has solid PROOF!

How stupid can people get??


lets see......an official claim PUSHED as truth says 2 planes totally globally collapsed 3 buildings as NEVER before, creating brand new physics that the authors of the OFFICIAL CLAIMS refuse to prove through physics/science...

so, you tell me.


"the phenomenon that we saw on 9/11 that brought this particular building down was really thermal expansion, which occurs at lower temperatures."
Shyam Sunder at the 2008 NIST technical briefing


'NEW science" where fire at one end of the building creates warm steel that in turn creates conditions for 105 vertical feet of continuous, global, unified acceleration equal to g. within the first 1.3 of the WTC7 6.5 second collapse....as found by the 2005 NIST...


NCSTAR 1A 3.6] "This free fall drop continues for approximately 8 stories, the distance traveled between t=1.75s and t=4.0s...constant, downward acceleration during this time interval. This acceleration was *9.8m/s^2*, equivalent to the acceleration of gravity."

NICSTAR 1A 4.3.4] Global Collapse..."The entire building above the buckled column region moved downward in a single unit, as observed, completing the global collapse"

NCSTAR1A p.39/130
"the damage from the debris from WTC 1 had little effect on initiating the collapse of WTC 7."


normal science tells us significance of freefall is NONE of the gravitational energy was available to destroy the supporting structures, ALL converted to MOTION!

to further explain means that any bending, crushing, breaking connections, removal of ANY/ALL structural resistance below the mass ACCELERATING, is occurring without the assistance of energy from the mass accelerating. Zero resistance.

as shown in any science/physics text pertaining to gravitational acceleration......"rate of acceleration seen by ALL mass REGARDLESS of weight toward the earth, at sea level, *~**WITHIN a VACUUM**~* is *9.8m/s^2*.

how can it be possible to see that SAME number, BOTH within a steel frame in the atmosphere, and under 'controlled' conditions,with ZERO resistance, not even air?

and peoples FIRST responce is.."no,this can't be true"......oh yes it is.

and there is nothing anyone can do about it but ACCEPTED it and proceed with dragging these A**HOLES to the forefront so the finger-pointing and deal-making can proceed.

You can also bet that this story is hidden on page ten of google search results too.

Make no mistake Google now has the power to swing elections and they are using it along with facebook, youtube and twitter.

Snowden is a Hero and the argument that any of his leaks might get someone killed is the same argument that no one should report the mafia because it might get a under cover cop killed.

The words I want to hear from Mr Snowden lips are "false flag" in regards to 9/11 so yes maybe he is a controled source like paid trolls are trying to preach.

because it is not all Gov., but elements within had a hand.

while 99% are there to do what is right, just as in any large Corporation, there are those out for personal gain...Gov. is no different and who are we to think it is.

9-11 has already been proven just that, by their own hand.....by refusing to support/ prove the bull they spew.

and hiding behind a Presidential Executive Order giving them permission to do so, claiming a matter of "public safety".

anyone can go the the Gov. website of Presidential Executive Orders, go to the 2008 of GB......and you will see an order giving ANY Gov. organization the right to withhold anything related to 9-11.....

so the 2008 NIST invoke just that........how convenient.

they don't have to prove their brand new never before seen physics phenomenon that fell WTC7.
