Why is European Union so "surprised" of NSA program, when just few years back, they required European telcos to record most of the same data, file it
for years, and hand it over to intelligence agencies including NSA? For EU spokeswoman to express privacy worries - that is a joke of grandest scale.
For years the whole of Europe has been wiretapped, recorded and monitored, with security cams hanging on every corner and roof top. What a joke to act
surprised and worried suddenly of the privacy and integrity. And why direct that debate and attention to US, and apparent close-down of something
everybody (with brains) has known for years?
What if Ed Snowden is acting on agenda? Perhaps of its own - trying to sell high value information to the highest bidders under the cover of
"democratic concerns" and the haze this mess creates? Or something more well planned and orchestrated.
Ed had been just 3 months at BAH - 3 months (!!!) - and went straight to a top-security clearance, and targeted surveillance??? That is very, very
hard to believe. Well, he was a security guard for NSA in his past - but clearance to that data - how on Earth? And only during these 3 months - when
did he really get access to those files, and when did he start to thinking - and planning - to use them for something? Did he walk into a treasure
trove on day one?
So, to me, this looks more intentional and purpose seeking, much more than just a civil liberties case. Surely the data he has passed forward pays
that bill, but that is not necessarily the whole purpose of the mission here. Normally, when something like this odd happens, there needs to be more
money, influence and power at stake.
BAH has grown to a major player in this field, with 5,6 Billion USD stake on that business. Somebody wants them out badly. Somebody wants that money.
And somebody wants field cleared out, that including NSA. Could it be, some other, more subtle and substantially more shadowy intelligence service
does not see money flowing to their direction, in such a scale as to these NSA's rather innocent looking facebook & blog diggins? An organisation,
which surely after this mess, will see itself getting fully funded.
Since, one thing is sure: after the dust has cleared, NSA is so out of this business, and something else is so into it, and into much, much more.
What if the whole thing is just about getting a bad run ops shut down, create "victory for democracy", and then roll in the real guns? To move
everything under wraps, and off the radars.
