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 ::

Oppose Cispa if you value any privacy in our digital world | Dan Gillmor | Comment is free |
Companies have new rights to monitor user actions and share data – including potentially sensitive user data – with the government without a warrant. [...] It's up to all of us to say, "We're not going to sacrifice all of our liberties for the illusion of safety." If you value any semblance of privacy in our increasingly digital world, call your House member's office. >> "[...] CISPA has a broad and alarming reach that goes far beyond Internet security. >> " immunity is worth alot of money to the companies. they'd rather have legal immunity than take a stand on protecting your privacy."

Reddit Co-Founder Wants Google, Facebook and Twitter to Fight CISPA
the legislation goes too far and ignores Americans' right to privacy. [...] CISPA is intended to allow private companies to more promptly share information on cyber attacks with the federal government, to improve and beef up defenses against cyber attacks. [...] Last month, it appeared Facebook withdrew its initial support for the legislation. And more than 30,000 other companies, including Reddit, Mozilla, Craigslist, and Duck Duck Go, have already come out against it. >> Lobby, demagogue's & National Security People @ Washington say one thing - but hide the other fact - that this bill helps them hunt down the good as well. "Backroom dealings."

Cloud Computing: EU-Bericht warnt vor Überwachung durch die USA - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Sie empfehlen den Parlamentariern deshalb, sich um Rechtssicherheit beim Cloud Computing zu kümmern. Ihnen wird nahegelegt, mit den USA in Verhandlungen zu treten, damit das Menschenrecht auf Privatsphäre auch für europäische Staatsbürger gelte. Außerdem sollten deutliche Warnungen vorgeschrieben werden: Denn wenn Cloud-Daten von der EU in die USA überführt werden, würden diese dem dortigen Überwachungsapparat ausgesetzt. Das müsse jedem Betroffenen mitgeteilt werden.

Alton Lu: The National Defense Authorization Act: Our Disappearing Rights and Liberties
The provisions of the Patriot Act allow the government to spy upon U.S. citizens and the NDAA allows the government to whisk a citizen away for no reason other than being suspected of terrorism.
So why has this law been passed when it is very easily seen as unconstitutional? The Fourth Amendment grants liberty from unreasonable seizures, while the Sixth guarantees every U.S. citizen a trial in front of a jury. No matter what supporters of the bill might have said about the provisions being misunderstood, the simple fact is that it is unconstitutional.
