The top Nazi over at surveillance central in Fort Meade, General Keith Alexander continues to provide the best examples of exactly why Obama’s rogue NSA spying operations need to be shut down for good. With outrage building outside of the United States of Dancing With the Stars as revelations of surveillance on foreign leaders now breaking on a near daily basis Barry is besieged by calls for explanations from those heads of state. The Obama regime has succeeded in finishing the job that Bush and Cheney started in turning this once great country into a global pariah that speaks with a forked tongue and carries the biggest stick in world history of a bloated imperial war machine - the moron bully of the neighborhood. Alexander is now taking it to the next level in calling for the government to stop reporters, like his buddies across the pond he has a fear of being held accountable for their criminal actions. The man is a power hungry, Star Trek junkie of an authoritarian freak and should be the last person allowed to run the spying apparatus, he is to be stepping down come springtime but that isn’t enough, the man should be court martialed, busted down to buck private and then sent packing without the lavish taxpayer funded retirement package that his is going to score. And the closest thing to an electronic device that the bastard should be allowed to have for the rest of his life is the ankle bracelet that will be mandated for his house arrest.
General Alexander’s latest and greatest grabbing of the brass ring of infamy are comments that he made during an interview for a Defense Department blog in which he called for the halting of reporting on the boatload of abuses that he and his data miners have been caught red handed perpetrating. The General ranted that "I think it’s wrong that that newspaper reporters have all these documents, the 50,000—whatever they have and are selling them and giving them out as if these—you know it just doesn’t make sense" and "We ought to come up with a way of stopping it. I don’t know how to do that. That’s more of the courts and the policymakers but, from my perspective, it’s wrong to allow this to go on". The comments are the plaintive wails of a cornered rat and even more of an indication that the worst (or best) stuff is yet to come. Interesting that he referenced “selling” of documents of which nothing has been reported on this angle but it reeks of the same type of lies that are always spewed to defend the all-encompassing blanket of impunity provide by invoking “national security” to cover up big government criminality. It could be a trial balloon for a new avenue of smearing by the Obama goons and rational for unleashing dirty Eric Holder for yet another of the witch hunts that have pockmarked this rancid administration and its war on journalists. I suspect that the “selling” of leaked documents will be used to turn investigative reporting into an act of espionage and that the secret courts and grand juries of the fascist state will be very busy in the coming months.
Glenn Greenwald has every reason to be worried as do any other truth tellers who are about to become the prey of a desperate predatory state as it seeks to once and for all eradicate its enemies. War criminal Dick Cheney is a scheduled guest on the Sunday morning propaganda circuit so let's see if the treasonous old dog goes to the "selling documents" talking point much like he did when he and the war machine mouthpieces used the forums to lie the country into attacking and invading Iraq. Obama may be running the U.S. Stasi now but another story in Der Spiegel reports that according to documents obtained that the U.S. fascist apparatus has been spying on German Chancellor Angela Merkel's phone since 2002. Dastardly Dick should have to answer that question were it to be posed to him by one of those smug, sanctimonious sacks of shit Sunday morning hosts.
The blowback against the NSA Stasi surveillance continues here in the star spangled lemming colony as well albeit on a lesser level than in the educated world, largely due to an abundance of television addicted borderline retards and a state media that abhors the truth as much as General Alexander. There is to be a 'stop watching us" rally in Washington D.C. today to protest the ruling establishment’s disdain for constitutional privacy rights but don’t look for it to get much play in the national media that is enjoying a fresh round of ghoulish pedophilia over startling new revelations in the Jon Benet Ramsey case.
