Edward Snowden

Edward Snowden, a former CIA and NSA intelligence whistleblower “has had and continues to have contact” with Russian intelligence services according to a newly declassified congressional report released on Thursday.

“Since Snowden’s arrival in Moscow, he has had, and continues to have, contact with Russian intelligence services,” according to the US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee report.

“American troops will be at greater risk in any future conflict” with Russia or China said the report, which was largely blacked out.

“The committee remains concerned that more than three years after the start of the unauthorized disclosures, NSA, and the IC (Intelligence Community) as a whole, have not done enough to minimize the risk of another massive unauthorized disclosure,” the report continued.

Snowden criticized the report from his Twitter account, saying it was “rifled with obvious falsehoods.”

“The House committee spent three years and millions of dollars in a failed attempt to discredit Edward Snowden, whose actions led to the most significant intelligence reforms in a generation,” said Snowden’s chief lawter, Ben Wizner, on Twitter.

  1. “”American troops will be at greater risk in any future conflict” with Russia or China said the report”
    => Nope : the risk would be EXACTLY the same if some conflict occurred : being nuked, and the risk would be the same for Russians or Chineses. And same thing for the populations, so, it’s simply useless to build further war plans as in about half an hour, such conflict wold be finished, the time it needs for the MIRVs to fall on their targets. Now, except if someone really bonkers came in power, this is not likely to happen, all have simply too much too lose in such a confrontation.
    The biggest risk is having 3rd parties trying to push them into a conflict by some false flag action in order to provoke a mutual destruction and so opening the way to their own agendas or as we’ve seen recently by some stupid brinkmanship game : on side fills Diego Garcia with bombers at never seen levels (no more room on tarmac, bombers even placed on the roads), even repainting the B-52s with radar absorbent coating while other deploys Kalibr in Kaliningrad, DEFCON at level 3, etc etc… Such provocations should be avoided : the chicken game with nukes is not really clever : some zealous idiot could make a bad move and let’s go for Dr.Strangelove…
    The main sources of risks for US militaries/populations -and many others- really comes from 3rd parties, mostly with double agendas doing cover ops behind the scene.

    • Daeshbag, you are again correct.

      Before the proliferation of nuclear weapons the whole world was never at risk from obliteration due to evil and often childlike elite’s.

      At the moment the leader of the Adults of the world is President Putin.

      The leader of the petulant child elite of the world is the Nobel Peace Prize winner and proponent of endless wars and world wide Drone Assassination attacks, President OBAMA.

      • I agree of the “adult” about Putin. I can’t tell if I would approve him if I was Russian for internal politics, I don’t live here but when it comes to foreign policy, he simply does what has to be done and in a very clever way.
        Obama is Uncle Tom, don’t look further. I sincerely doubt he is/was in control i.e. like a Roosevelt, at least in foreign policy, actually, FP didn’t changed at least since Reagan if not Carter and endless wars are good for the military-industrial complex and make no mistakes : these are not ‘real’ wars, at least on the US and even Russian or Chinese POV. Let’s be clear : if there was a REAL will to destroy Daesh, Qaeda, etc, technically speaking, just look at the powers that may be implied : at the regional level, France or Israel or India could strike 30k targets with 227kg guided bombs per 24 hours (they’re mostly on par for strike capacity, UK’s a little under). Russia could strike 75k, China could strike 150-200k and USA about 300k. Full NATO could strike about 450k.
        I speak of a maximal air-campaign. I’m not sure the stockpiles could sustain it, LOL, actually, I have no idea of the numbers stockpiled, but it’s the capacity of their air forces, in other terms, VKS has dropped in a year what they could drop in a single day, USAF/coalition have dropped the 10th USAF can do alone and about what France, India or Israel can do daily.
        => Morality : if there was a REAL will, we -it includes any medium power willing to be involved, I see matters on a pure technical POV as living in a medium-power-, could simply force out of the open-field and small towns ALL the terrorist, even blockading them to attempt to take cover in cities while the boots cleanse the ground. If we consider planing/spotting target, in 1 to 2 weeks, only the cities to retake would be left in the hands of the roaches and these would be besieged without any possibility of ammo resupply.
        Well, Douma hasn’t voted credits to Putin to push more and IMHO, considering Russia is a bit running low on economics, I don’t think, unless Russians in Syria find themselves under attack, that credits will go over the normal drill budget but, sincerely, I’d really like everybody getting involved together to terminate this cockroach nest as, the longer it takes, the more they multiply so better fumigate once and for good, containment ain’t the way to go.
        And frankly, I don’t give a fuck of who gets in : there are persons of good will in ANY nation and letting the roaches proliferate is a threat for EVERYBODY, unless if you want to live in a totally backwardist world ruled by crazy bedouins that want harems, fuck goats and children, drink camel piss and chop heads and limbs if you don’t agree their folly.
