Edward Snowden has much more to tell: father

Oct 17 2013, 3:50am CDT | by IANS

New York, Oct 17 (IANS/ITAR -TASS) Lon Snowden, the father of former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, has said his son has much to tell about illegal tricks of the US secret services.

New York, Oct 17 (IANS/ITAR -TASS) Lon Snowden, the father of former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, has said his son has much to tell about illegal tricks of the US secret services.

Lon Snowden spoke to journalists upon arrival at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport Wednesday after a trip to Russia where he went to see his son.

He said his son knew many things that could be made public.

According to Snowden Sr., he liked his visit to Russia and planned to pay another visit to that country, although he did not yet know when.

He also said his son Edward was feeling well and comfortable in Russia.

Lon Snowden said he gave Edward his parental advice not to return to the US, but in any case, it was up to Edward to decide.

When asked about his immediate plans, Snowden Sr. said he was going to a hotel to have some rest. He left the airport in his personal car.

Edward Snowden, 30, was accused in the US of leaking information on the National Security Agency's programmes of electronic eavesdropping.

He received temporary asylum in Russia after spending more than a month in the transit zone of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport.

US authorities claim that Snowden encroached on two clauses of the 1917 law on espionage by making public without authorisation some secret data pertaining to national defence.

In addition, he is charged with stealing property of the US government. He is facing a grim prospect of 10 years in jail on each of the three charges if he returns to American soil.

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 emotional outburst could be record ...

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). Jihadists from Britain are at the forefront of ...

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.

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 unusually opa ...

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.

This week in stupid: Edward Snowden

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 publ ...

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, "pr ...
