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.

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

Human Rights Watch: NSA-Überwachung schadet Journalismus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Kein Einzelfall: Amerikas Ausspähapparat erschwere die Arbeit investigativer Reporter zusehends, berichtet die Menschenrechtsorganisation Human Rights Watch (HRW) in einer Studie, die sie an diesem Montag vorlegte. Darin steckt tiefe Ironie: War es doch - neben den Enthüllungen des früheren NSA-Manns Edward Snowden - investigativer Journalismus, der das wahre Ausmaß der Bespitzelung überhaupt erst bekannt machte. Der Schnüffelwahn schade der Meinungs- und Pressefreiheit, klagt HRW. Uramerikanische Werte wie "Freiheit, Demokratie und eine offene, verantwortliche Regierung" seien "schwer bedroht" - durch die groß angelegten, staatlichen Überwachungsprogramme, gepaart mit verschärften, oft gnadenlosen Maßnahmen zur Geheimhaltung regierungseigener Interna. [...] "Wenn die USA diese Sorgen nicht schnell und effektiv anspricht, könnte das ernsten, langfristigen Schaden für das Gefüge der Demokratie in unserem Land haben"

Blacklisted: The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a TerroristThe Intercept
"The heart of the document revolves around the rules for placing individuals on a watchlist. “All executive departments and agencies,” the document says, are responsible for collecting and sharing information on terrorist suspects with the National Counterterrorism Center. It sets a low standard—”reasonable suspicion“—for placing names on the watchlists, and offers a multitude of vague, confusing, or contradictory instructions for gauging it." [...] The immediate family of suspected terrorists [...] ”associates” who have a defined relationship with a suspected terrorist, but whose involvement in terrorist activity is not known. A third loophole is broader still—individuals with “a possible nexus” to terrorism, but for whom there is not enough “derogatory information” to meet the reasonable suspicion[.]" |PS: The Intercept/First Look.org = Greenwald & Omydiar, former sold it all to the latter. // Patriot Act II - http://bit.ly/1zVO3wf // http://bit.ly/1y4kc1R source not from Snowden!

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”.
