Snowden still in transit area at Moscow airport: Putin

Jun 25 2013, 5:10pm CDT | by

Helsinki, June 26 (IANS) Russian President Vladimir Putin, on a visit to Finland, said that US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden was still in the transit area at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.

Helsinki, June 26 — Russian President Vladimir Putin, on a visit to Finland, said that US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden was still in the transit area at Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.

Saying that Snowden's arrival was completely unexpected, Putin voiced hope that the case would not impair relations with the US, Xinhua reported.

Putin said he would not turn over Snowden to US authorities because Russia did not have an extradition treaty with the country.

Snowden arrived at Moscow as a "transit passenger" and was free to go anywhere he choses, Putin said following a meeting with his Finnish counterpart Sauli Niinisto.

However, the Russian president expressed hope that Snowden would soon find a destination to leave for.

Surveillance and the Creative Mind

Aug 26 2014 12:58pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

In a world where many aspects of our daily lives are written or recorded and transmitted digitally, our raw thoughts and casual observations are increasingly open to scrutiny and vulnerable to interception. Our behavior is frequently documented, whether it is by government agencies, corporate entities, news organizations, or fellow citizens. This means that every iteration of an evolving idea, off-hand comment, and emotiona ...

The Biggest Single Trigger of Jihadism Has Been our Adherence to ‘Multiculturalism’

Aug 24 2014 4:17am CDT | Source: Big Government

The sadistic beheading of the American journalist James Foley by an ISIL killer apparently from Britain, just a few days ago, is the first such killing of an American by a jihadist with a British passport.  But it is the second ritual beheading carried out by British Islamists (the head of a British soldier, Drummer Lee Rigby, was hacked from his body by two of them in Woolwich, London last year in full public view). Jiha ...

ISIS a Jewish Plot? Propaganda and Islamic Jihad

Aug 22 2014 8:56am CDT | Source: Big Government

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 their war to establish a new Islamic Caliphate, Haifi re ...

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 has been advanced to the U.S. Court ...

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 200 ...

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 in 2011. Parsi tweeted that St. Louis County Chief Timothy Fi ...

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 osten ...

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 to keep its secrets secr ...
