Geheimdienst-Untersuchungsausschuss: Das zweifelhafte Gebaren von BND und Bundesregierung | netzpolitik.org
a farce that produces nothing. that is like '1 Euro Job' for Career Politicians and Policy Makers. nothing productive. nothing positive. nothing benefiting transparency and democracy. just burning time and money ... showing that they do something, if even it is nothing of value and substance.

Ilija Trojanow: Über den überwachten Menschen und das widerständige Wort - Literatur - derStandard.at › Kultur
Die Existenz der Massenüberwachung wird nicht mehr bestritten, wie noch vor wenigen Jahren, als nicht wenige Kritiker des Buches Angriff auf die Freiheit. Sicherheitswahn, Überwachungsstaat und der Abbau bürgerlicher Rechte von meiner Koautorin Juli Zeh und mir Übertreibung und Hysterie vorwarfen. Wir wissen, dass die NSA zwischen drei und vier Milliarden Menschen überwacht, nämlich alle digitalen Bürger und Bürgerinnen des Planeten. [...] Wir wissen, dass wir dieser Überwachung (fast) nicht entgehen können, auch nicht durch Verschlüsselung unserer Kommunikation, denn bei allen marktüblichen Programmen ist eine kleine Hintertür offen gelassen, durch die Geheimdienste hineinschlüpfen können, [...] Die demokratische Verfasstheit ist weder in Stein gemeißelt noch genetisch einprogrammiert. [...] behördlicher Vertuschung: "nationale Sicherheit" [...] demokratischen Gesellschaft angreift.

US Spy Programs May Break the Internet if Not Reformed, Google Leader Says | WIRED
Until the US recognizes and restores the fundamental right of ownership you have in your data, he continued, the U.S. cannot hope to rebuild trust lost through the NSA’s widespread surveillance programs. This stance flies in the face of what we expect from internet companies these days, many of whom tend to act as if they own the content we create. [...] COMPANIES HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE THE STEPS THAT APPLE AND OTHERS WERE TAKING TO STRENGTHEN THE SECURITY OF CUSTOMER DATA, AND THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GET USED TO IT.

Das digitale Demokratiedesaster - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Weltweit haben die Dokumente von Edward Snowden zunächst einen antidemokratischen Spähapparat enthüllt. In der Folge haben sie auch massives Regierungsversagen offenbart, ein totales, vollständiges, nachhaltiges Versagen demokratischer Kontrolle. Und zwar genau auf der Ebene, für die Verfassungen ursprünglich geschrieben wurden, zum Schutz der Bürger vor den Staatsgewalten.

The Moment of Truth - YouTube
minute ~32 - ~33 - ~34 :: declaring something national secret / classified, that is no harm to citizens of the country if it were public ... is anti-democratic. It is Dictatorship/Elite/Establishment-like behaviour. It is the short cut Career Politicians take for their own gain. /// +++ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Eyes "Despite the impact of Snowden's disclosures, the general consensus among experts in the intelligence community holds that no amount of global outrage will affect the Five Eyes relationship, which, to this day, remains the most powerful espionage alliance in world history." +++ http://pando.com/2014/09/15/greenwald-in-new-zealand-grandstanding-doesnt-get-more-condescending-or-counter-productive/ Sure, to use the release of the information (against Key & Government) as a grand stand may be opportunistic, but to swipe the evidence away because of it is unacceptable. It is still a Political Campaign, a Party running for election, like any other party ... would do so.

Personal Privacy Is Only One of the Costs of NSA Surveillance | Threat Level | WIRED
The Foundation’s report, released today, outlines some of the collateral damage of NSA surveillance in several areas, including: Economic losses to US businesses due to lost sales and declining customer trust. The deterioration of internet security as a result of the NSA stockpiling zero-day vulnerabilities, undermining encryption and installing backdoors in software and hardware products. Undermining the government’s credibility and leadership on “internet freedom” and governance issues such as censorship. -->> its like trade sanctions - but on the internet among other things. +++ http://youtu.be/DU_1yoUzKs8

NSA releases email in dispute over Snowden 'internal whistleblowing' | World news | theguardian.com
sadly comical scene of Snowden asserting that he raised the issue of the WH overriding Congress (ie a coup) via the NSA in an email and the NSA replying there is no evidence that he made this point. >> ""The issue is an important one in the context of whether NSA surveillance activities were permissible, as it addresses possible conflict between laws passed by Congress and orders given by the White House. Senate intelligence committee members Ron Wyden and Mark Udall have long argued the administration may have been in breach of surveillance statutes in its activities. They were prevented from raising many of their concerns in public due to confidentiality requirements. The NSA, however, disputes that this latest email exchange is proof of Snowden raising concerns about “interpretations of its legal authorities”.
