Moscow, June 23 — A plane believed to be carrying US intelligence fugitive Edward Snowden arrived in Moscow from Hong Kong, from where the US was seeking his extradition on charges of espionage. There is speculation that he might now fly on to another country, BBC reported.

The Hong Kong government said Washington had failed to meet the requirements for extradition.

Snowden, an intelligence contractor, fled to Hong Kong in May after revealing details of internet and phone surveillance by US intelligence on countries including India, Pakistan, China and Iran.

It took her more than nine years of working in the Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security, but Yasmina Haifi finally uncovered the secret truth about the Islamic State: It isn't Islamic at all. Actually, it's a Jewish plot. Yes, really: that terrorist group formerly known as ISIS, responsible for acts of genocide in Iraq, for the beheading of American journalist James Foley, and for the murder of countless women and children in t ...

Legal teams gang up on NSA over spy programs

Aug 21 2014 10:09am CDT | Source: WND

A challenge to the National Security Agency’s efforts to spy on Americans has gotten the support of some legal heavyweights in the battle over civil rights across the United States – the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union. Attorney Larry Klayman, of FreedomWatchUSA and a commentary author for WND, obtained a stunning ruling at the trial court level that the programs likely are unconstitutional. The case ...

BERLIN (AP) — Germany's foreign intelligence agency eavesdropped on calls made by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and his predecessor Hillary Clinton, German magazine Der Spiegel reported Saturday.

Did a U.S. defense contractor help create the next generation of spyware weapons?

Aug 16 2014 8:50am CDT | Source: Big Government

The Washington Post relates a fascinating little cloak-and-dagger story that ends with a heck of a punchline: a U.S. defense contractor was apparently working with the dirtbags who create spyware and virus programs to develop new tools for spying on people, potentially both foreign and domestic. CloudShield Technologies, a California defense contractor, dispatched a senior engineer to Munich in the early fall of 2009. His instructions were unusual ...

Columnist Glenn Greenwald Somehow Blames Israel for Ferguson Riots

Aug 15 2014 5:13pm CDT | Source: Big Government

Glenn Greenwald, the columnist famed for coming to the support of NSA leaker Edward Snowden, has chimed in on the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, by hinting that Israel is to blame for influencing the police there. Greenwald cited an Iranian activist named Trita Parsi who claimed that "excessive police violence" in Ferguson can be blamed on the fact that the county police chief took a fact-finding trip to Israel ...

This week in stupid: Edward Snowden

Aug 15 2014 11:07am CDT | Source: Big Government

Props to WIRED magazine for getting the interview everyone wanted: a full-length on the record with Edward Snowden from his Russian hideout. But that cover! Oh, that cover. The full image has to be seen to be believed. It would have been a provocative sight were Snowden not so comically dorky-looking. And, you know, a traitor.  With the possible exception of Snowden's media accomplice, Glenn Greenwald, I'm not sure any public figure is so ostentatiously fond of themselves. The more y ...

Government Invokes 'Privacy' Exemption To Conceal Secrets

Aug 15 2014 6:33am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

When the National Security Agency wanted to block the public release of former contractor Edward Snowden's emails, it found an unlikely ally: His privacy. The government cited a federal law protecting privacy rights to deny journalist Matthew Keys' request for Snowden's messages. Experts said Snowden is far from an exception. From Osama bin Laden to former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, "privacy" claims are the government's latest excuse t ...

Are the Contours of a Hillary Doctrine Emerging in Iraq?

Aug 14 2014 6:41pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

There's an awful lot of handwringing going on in Washington. With each passing day, there seems to be a new excuse for why America can't work by, with, and through our friends and international partners. A leading opponent of interventionist foreign policy, Sen. Rand Paul, recently said of ongoing airstrikes in Iraq, "[I]t concerns me that we would have to do their fighting for them because they won't fight for their own country, the ...

Challenging Edward Snowden and the information vigilantes

Aug 14 2014 2:52pm CDT | Source: Big Government

I've had strong misgivings about the freelance arbiters of secrecy ever since Wikileaks got off the ground.  Since I'm also institutionally suspicious of the government agencies they raid for information, and particularly suspicious of what the government has mutated into over the past six years, that poses a bit of a dilemma.  Can you respond to the information provided by someone like Edwar ...
