Mods, this seemed the fit given the topic and content for getting beyond the dis-info laid before us. Move if needed.
I just came across this by way of a site I frequent with leaky type information and thought I would share it. It's a newsletter and covers a wide
range of topics raised in the overall Snowden issue but quite a bit outside that as well. What is written is solid and interesting to my thinking and
it takes a few minutes to get through. However, what is more valuable are the links at the end of each segment, giving paths to more in-depth
information as well as solutions in a couple instances for whatever problem the segment is discussing. Some examples:
A sample of Overall Contents:
In this issue:
-Blowback from the NSA Surveillance
-Evidence that the NSA Is Storing Voice Content, Not Just Metadata
-NSA Secrecy and Personal Privacy
-Petition the NSA to Subject its Surveillance Program to Public Comment
-New Details on Skype Eavesdropping
-Pre-9/11 NSA Thinking
-How the NSA Eavesdrops on Americans
-NSA E-Mail Eavesdropping
-US Offensive Cyberwar Policy
and a bit from one heading:
Evidence that the NSA Is Storing Voice Content, Not Just Metadata
There's been some interesting speculation that the NSA is storing everyone's phone calls, and not just metadata. The first link, below, is
definitely worth reading.
I expressed skepticism about this just a month ago. My assumption had always been that everyone's compressed voice calls are just too much data to
move around and store. Now, I don't know.
There's a bit of a conspiracy-theory air to all of this speculation, but underestimating what the NSA will do is a mistake. General Alexander has
told members of Congress that they *can* record the contents of phone calls. And they have the technical capability.

My previous skepticism:
I'd first clicked on it, thinking it was a different Newsletter printed by No Such Agency and really wondering how the heck a July '13 edition would
already be public..even at the original site I was on. It was with some confusion then, I found it was a thing someone else was putting together.
It was finally with pleasant surprise I got done with it though and figure I'll add this to my list of sites to check back on.
Whatever others do with it, I figured the contents of this edition were timely and certainly worth sharing. It's no quick thing, but a useful one,
I'd think. Enjoy!
