Redaction error reveals FBI did target Lavabit to spy on Edward Snowden
A redaction oversight by the US government has finally confirmed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s targeting of secure email service Lavabit was used specifically to spy on Edward Snowden.

Ladar Levison, creator of the email service, which was founded on a basis of private communications secured by encryption and had 410,000 users, was served a sealed order in 2013 forcing him to aid the FBI in its surveillance of Snowden.

Levison was ordered to install a surveillance package on his company’s servers and later to turn over Lavabit’s encryption keys so that it would give the FBI the ability to read the most secure messages that the company offered. He was also ordered not to disclose the fact to third-parties.

Tour de France: Zerstörerische Kraft - Sport Nachrichten -
Von 2012 gibt es eine Doku, die erzählt, wie Wiggins zum Tour-Sieg fährt. Die Filmemacher hatten ihn lange begleitet, sie waren im Höhentrainingslager, wo er die einsamsten Strassen aufsuchte, kontrolliert von Trainern, Helfern, Leistungsdiagnostikern; sie waren daheim, wo er seine Familie zur Weissglut trieb vor lauter Fokus; sie waren an der Tour, wo er die Fragen der Journalisten wie eine Maschine beantwortete. Nichts wollte er an sich heranlassen, ein Sportler, ein Ziel, er strotzte vor Kraft. Und als er die Tour und in London auch noch Olympiagold gewann und von der Queen geehrt wurde als Idol eines ganzen Landes, am Ende des Filmes also, da wollte man zuerst weinen für ihn vor lauter Glück. Und als man realisierte, dass Wiggins an der Aufmerksamkeit fast zerbrochen wäre wie früher, als er in den Alkohol geflüchtet war, da wollte man weinen, weil man erkannte, dass all das viel zu gross werden kann für einen einzelnen Menschen, zu gross und untragbar, bis der Mensch kaputtgeht.

The Snowden affair: The perils of whistleblowing - YouTube
See very last part of the discussion: Stasi Officers Interview 'it is naive to think that this intelligence will not be used (abused) for other purposes.' ... ie throwing off other foreign state officials that have done wrong, and USA, the West wants to have removed for a more Western leaning replacement. ... Let's say Erdogan. Stuff got on the internet about him and his family; bribery, taxevasion, corruption etc. leading up to local elections. ... That is just a coincidence. right!? just serendipity. + NSA Whistleblower - Jesselyn Radack & Thomas Drake | London Real :: + Annie Machon - Whistleblower | London Real ::

Fame is a temporary thing. They are normal people. Celebrity, Fame and Pop Culture makes people fearful - that their life ain't no good [ for anything else - because they are reduced to the lowest common denominator and looks and 'scandals' ].

In New York, Many in LGBT Community Hold Manning at a Distance - WNYC
Silverman said the community is always concerned about the media's representation of transgender people, and that Manning may not be the best figure to be the one to help educate the public on trans issues.  "That's probably not the best atmosphere in which to have a reasonable discussion about transgender people, what it means to be transgender and how transgender people should be treated by the medical community, whether that's in the medical system, or outside of it," he said.

Chelsea Manning: prison will not be kind to the WikiLeaks informer - Telegraph
It's hard to see why not. Imagine being forced to grow up as a man, knowing all the while you're a woman. Imagine being so desperate to deny your true gender that you "man up" by joining the army. [...] It makes me think that while I'd be the first to suggest that women aren't treated entirely equally in today's society, we get a far better deal than trans people. [...] I realised how little I knew about the trans community. It seems I'm not alone. [...] Perhaps Chelsea Manning's announcement is an opportunity for us all to reflect how little we understand the fear and torment she and others face every day of their lives.
