Can we really trust judges to protect reporters' confidential sources? | Media | The Guardian
Journalists won’t even be safe to talk email whistleblowers from a coffee shop [...] In stressing that the powers would not be used for mass surveillance, May said the onus would be on the home office to show necessity and proportionality. And who would decide whether that was justified? Judicial commissioners, she said. They would operate a “double-lock” authorisation process on intercept and bulk interception warrants in order to prevent intrusive snooping. [ old boys club with career interests? titles, pensions? ] But will this judicial oversight provide enough protection? That’s the key worry for journalists who now know that there is nowhere for them to conceal their communications with confidential sources.

U.S. developing sanctions against China over cyberthefts - The Washington Post
[ double standard. probably know that they will be outed come time to have e-mailed trade secrets of other nations big companies to their own national companies, even if it is just for infrastructure or defense contract bids ] The White House is getting ready to issue "unprecedented economic sanctions" against Chinese companies and individuals "who have benefited from their government’s cybertheft of valuable U.S. trade secrets," says the Washington Post. But the Post doesn't explain what those sanctions would be, or why the U.S. is going after individual targets instead of the Chinese government itself. One thing that is clear: Chinese president Xi Jinping is scheduled to visit the U.S. next month.

Today's Uncertain Future Calls For Observation and Patience, Not Boldness and Strategy | BillMoyers.com
Not one of the signature foreign policy initiatives conceived in Obama’s first term has borne fruit. When it came to making a fresh start with the Islamic world, responsibly ending the “dumb” war in Iraq (while winning the “necessary” one in Afghanistan), “resetting” US-Russian relations, and “pivoting” toward Asia, mark your scorecard zero for four. There’s no doubt that when Kerry arrived at the State Department he brought with him some much-needed energy. That he is giving it his all — the department’s website reports that the secretary has already clocked over 682,000 miles of travel — is doubtless true as well. The problem is the absence of results. Remember when his signature initiative was going to be an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal? Sadly, that quixotic plan, too, has come to naught.

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.

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!

eBay Shrugged: Pierre Omidyar believes there should be no philanthropy without profit | PandoDaily
Pierre Omidyar. The role of Omidyar Network in so many major events of the past week — helping elect India’s ultranationalist leader Narendra Modi; co-funding Ukraine regime-change NGOs with USAID, resulting in a deadly civil war and Monday’s election of Ukrainian billionaire oligarch Petro Poroshenko; and now, this week’s first-ever sit-down TV interview with Edward Snowden, through an arrangement between NBC News and Pierre Omidyar’s First Look Media — shows how these contradictions are coming to the fore, and shaping our world. [...] Muhammad Yunus failed to dissuade Omidyar: "Let them make money—but why do you want to make money off the poor people?” [...] “Omidyar views the fund as a way of testing his theories about commercializing the sector. ‘It’s really the demonstration impact I’m looking for, primarily,’ he said.” << Billionaires Playground.

Op-Ed: What happens to WikiLeaks matters to everyone
The problem is that this concern for the First Amendment protections of the press and of citizens in general, is a new development. Just last year the Department of Justice was caught spying on the offices of the Associated Press. That spying led to a source going to prison for 43 months. That was not an isolated incident and the DOJ’s war on journalism goes back quite some time. In 2006, it was revealed that DOJ was targeting a freelance journalist covering the Free Trade Area of the Americas conference. That is certainly nowhere near as important to the Department as shutting down a vile enemy of freedom like WikiLeaks. But they managed to find the resources to go after a freelance journalist covering a trade agreement.

FAZ.NET-Fernsehkritik: Alles, was wir privat nannten, ist jetzt weg - FAZ.NET-Frühkritik - FAZ
„Alles, was wir einmal Bürgerrechte oder Privatsphäre nannten: Das ist alles weg.“ Ein fulminanter Satz. In historischer Perspektive bedeutet das nichts anderes als den Verlust dessen, was unsere Vorfahren seit der Aufklärung als die Essenz der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft erkämpft haben. Gerade die Bundeskanzlerin, wie auch der Bundespräsident, sollten als ehemalige DDR-Bürger wissen, was das bedeutet. [...] Ihr „Nullsprech“ mag politisch opportun sein, wäre aber nichts anderes als die Bankrotterklärung Europas vor seiner eigenen Geschichte.

Interview mit Snowdens russischem Anwalt Kutcherena - SPIEGEL ONLINE
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Haben die Amerikaner Kontakt zu Ihnen aufgenommen? Kutscherena: Die Botschaft hat mich angerufen, sie wollen ein Treffen. Was mich verwundert: Es gibt bis heute kein offizielles Auslieferungsgesuch von Seiten der USA. Ich wiederhole: Amerika hat kein Auslieferungsgesuch gestellt! Und Amerika hat nicht verlautbart, dass Snowdens Vorwürfe nicht stimmen. Snowden hat der Welt die Augen geöffnet. SPIEGEL ONLINE: Russland hat einen riesigen Geheimdienstapparat. Abgehörte Telefonate Oppositioneller tauchen schon mal in der Kreml-nahen Presse auf. Ist der demonstrative Einsatz für Snowden nicht scheinheilig? Kutscherena: Ich bin für Ehrlichkeit. Die Amerikaner predigen von der Kanzel, dass sie die Verfassung schützen. Der Mensch steht dort an erster Stelle, seine Rechte und Freiheiten sind unantastbar. Natürlich erlauben die Gesetze auch Spezialoperationen und Einschränkungen, etwa im Kampf gegen Terroristen. Aber doch nicht in solcher Masse!

BBC News - GCHQ use of Prism surveillance data was legal, says report
UK press and media has been mute about it all. Maybe because USA put a lot of pressure on UK because of the Julian Assange debakel? UK is more of an ally to USA than Germany to USA.

BBC News - Snowden 'arrives at Moscow airport from Hong Kong'
Russian state news agency RIA Novosti said a car from the Ecuadorean embassy in Moscow, bearing a national flag, was seen at the airport just as the plane arrived. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is currently sheltering in the Ecuadorean embassy in London after being granted asylum last year. Wikileaks has issued a statement saying that it has helped to find Mr Snowden "political asylum in a democratic country". --- On Saturday, the White House contacted Hong Kong to try to arrange his extradition. But the territory's administration, in a statement issued on Sunday, said the documents submitted by Washington did not "fully comply with the legal requirements under Hong Kong law".
