Thank you, DIrish~

It was a love-fest..

We know Putin's lying his ass off but here it is in Black and White. The Putin and Snowden show..



Journalistic death toll in Putin's Russia

Charlie Pierce: "This, dear boy, is a very bad move." nt

Check out this comment under the article at TPM..

"Greenwald is notoriously and obviously one of the most thin-skinned "investigative journalists" around. He can dish it out but cannot take it when the camera focuses on him or his protogees. Snowden is either the most naive geek around or his enjoying his moment in the sun a bit too much. To let Putin get away with statements yesterday that Russia doesn't spy on its own people is evidence that Snowden is nurturing and cultivating his Russian hosts in a very unhealthy and hypocritical way, in my opinion."

I don't think "naivety" has anything to do with it.. more like Putin's little lap dog.

I see snowden/greenwald fans are trying to persuade one and all to move along.. nothing to

to see here. It's only snowden being used as a world class tool/fool by Putin and greenwald tweeting some jibberish to deflect.

Only snowden and glenn get to talk.. everyone else has to stfu.



But what caught my eye in one of the unredacted slides was the mention of Al Qaeda in Iraq being a particular target of the NSA's efforts. The slide reads: "Visual Communicator – Free application that combines Instant Messaging, Photo-Messaging, and Push2Talk capabilities on a mobile platform. VC used on GPRS or 3G networks." The next five words were what the Times tried and failed to redact: "heavily used in AQI Mosul Network."

The aim as described in the documents is to target mobile phone apps that can give away a target's physical location. The utility of this in tracking terrorists hardly needs to be stated. The document describes a program focusing on clear security interests – Al Qaeda in Iraq, now calling itself Al Qaeda in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) – killed thousands in Iraq during the US-led war there and continues to carry out suicide bombings and attacks on civilians there on a weekly basis. ISIS is also deeply involved in the civil war in Syria, and the groups ties to Al Qaeda make it an obvious security concern for the US.

Sen Harry Reid weighs in on cloven bundy, "AMERICA's BIGGEST MOOCHER"..



Reid says Bundy Ranch standoff ‘not over’

"Nevada’s senior senator, who also happens to be the Senate Majority Leader, weighed in late yesterday.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid weighed in on the tensions in his state between rancher Cliven Bundy and the Bureau of Land Management, saying, “It’s not over.”

“Well, it’s not over,” Reid told NBC’s Nevada affiliate KRNV on Monday. “We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.”
