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.

“”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… Read more »

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,… Read more »
