China knocks out counterfeit F-35 fighter jets

The same back doors our NSA inserts to spy on encrypted communication are what the Chinese use to reap a 30x bang for their defense spending versus the U.S.

The Jihadi Journal recently published an article entitiled, "The Five Healthy Habits of a Muslim Extremist", written by Jihad Joe.

1)  Never eat in the dark even with your right hand.  Hummus and feces can occassionally have similar consistencies and desert storms can impair your sense of smell.

 

2)  Dancing is dirty.  A prematurely triggered bomb vest could make a mess of your Mosque.  

 

3)  Hijabs and facemasks are your friend.  Apply them as you would sunscreen each morning to protect your identity when scoping public bombing venues.

 

4)  Only marry women with pre-pubescent clitorectomies.  Jealousy is less of an issue for them when you meet your 72 virgins.

 

5) Sharia law supercedes laws of any non-muslim country.  If Infidels could self-govern, their money would not say, "In Allah We Trust".

How ironic that Hillary Clinton suffer the same abuse she gave Edward Snowden.  Why is it a Republican conspiracy when Hillary is accused of indiscretion with state secrets on her personal storage devices but Hillary grants no mercy when Edward Snowden does the same to patriotically warn citizenry how civil rights on which our country was founded are being voided by people like Hillary.

Your implication that clandestine actions are illegal is a false premise.  The fact that legal actions may be clandestine from our own government has repeatedly been proven with the examples I provided to benefit our society. The fact that the NSA now has the power to unearth all clandestine behavior and a history of abusing such power seems to be one you are incapable of comprehending the evil of.

After searching, I found Snowden revealed evidence the NSA spies on foreign leaders and network administrators.  I respect your position that such revelations constitute treason in violating clandestine efforts of our government that are valuable for public defense.  I also agree that rewarding Snowden with a pardon for such an offense sends the wrong message to those hired to support such clandestine efforts.

The inept prevention of unauthorized access by government officials unwilling to accept/appreciate their lack of comprension of the complexities that permit unauthorized access to the god-like power they commissioned by both those with greater expertise to build and run it and foreign nation-states bent on knowing what we're up to continues to pose a grave threat to the perpetuation of our democracy.  Exposure of that ineptitude along with exposure of abuses warrants a pardon for Snowden in my opinion.

Any lesser exposure from Snowden would equally meet your criteria for criminal/treasonous exposure.  Any fealty subjected to the same abuse and inept oversight of PRISM would have made the same decision to adequately explain/educate an incredulous public lest the NSA's vision of a totalitarian mafia form unhindered.  The congressional representatives subjected to NSA coersion to perpetuate NSA funding is just a tiny foretaste of how fake our democracy is until NSA capabilities are restrained to a level that Brittish voters approved last week.

While executives, researchers, et. al. in the communications industry were privy to evolving monitoring efforts by the NSA since inception, the general public remains largely incredulous that their supposed democracy could be orders of magnitude worse than Hitler's Gestapo or the USSR's Ministry of State Security at monitoring private lives without the majority of Congress even being aware, despite what Snowden revealed.

Only those benefiting from the ineptitude and abuse of power that Snowden exposed could possibly want it hidden given how ineffective, excessively costly and risky to our democracy the capabilities are.

Government accountability requires informed citizenry.  Paul Revere, Mark Felt, Daniel Ellsberg, Frank Serpico, Karen Silkwood, Mark Whitacre, Jeffrey Wigland, Coleen Rowley, Sherron Watkins and many lesser known others were lone wolves who strengthened our society. The world you wish for wouldn't be one you would be willing to live in due do your valuing rules protecting bureaucratic wrongdoers more than whistleblowers who expose them.

Since journalists hiding their work to expose Nixon or Japanese hiding from being interred by FDR or civil rights activists hiding from elected KKK members might not be contemporary enough for you, here are some very contemporary examples.  A recurring theme of the examples seems to be that at times, illegal acts can be more ethical than legal acts and at other times, legal acts can be be less ethical than illegal acts.  

 

 

A link to a TED talk below outlines several instances of legal citizens of Muslim heritage and with below average IQs being set up by bored FBI agents (authorized by elected officials) to buy enough guns and explosives to become a fabricated, "terrorist threat". Efforts to justify the exhorbitantly high cost of creating and maintaining the surveillance state apparatus have stooped to fabricating threats as no real threat yet exists to provide justification that the apparatus has been justifiable.   The forced hiding of religious affiliation and slump in demand for hijabs may be a a good by-product but causes hiding from representatives of elected officials nonetheless.

Firstly, while true that Snowden violated protocol of the organization he worked for, the stakes were abuse of a tool capable of ending our democracy or being chased by the most powerful nation on earth.

Secondly, it is rather presumptuous that the techniques Snowden used to infiltrate PRISM without detection are somehow only known to government officials employing others evidently more knowledgable about computers than the government officials who they report to. Anyone raised in the era of the 8080 Bug Book and a healthy curiosity for how computers work from the binary to the hexadecimal to the ascii to the BIOS to multiple OS's has already used Snowden's techniques and we number in the tens of thousands are are not goverment officials. 

Thirdly, it is likely that tools as powerful as those developed by the NSA may someday actually prevent terrorism or help catch terrorist and may even have done so already.  However, until the NSA provides case studies of thwarted acts of terrorism prior to Snowden's revelations or acts that could not be thwarted after Snowden's revelations, any assertion that Snowden compromised the effectiveness of efforts to protect against terrorism is unsupportable.  The only evidence of harm from Snowden's revelations thus far are to the ego of power lusting government officials hell-bent on diverting vast tax resources to acquire an inadequately protected level of information access.  The NSA has yet to be cost-justified and proven non-threatening to our democracy.

Well articulated.  However, good persons often have need to hide. The founding fathers of the United States had to hide from being shot at by Brittish loyalist whilst creating our nation.  Leaving the judgement of who is good and who is bad in the hands of an unpoliced police state with a tool capable of coerpting our democracy is the antithesis of good.

Labeling Snowden a criminal/traitor begs delusional/corrupt belief that contractors who design, build and service PRISM never make non-govermental self-rewarding use of PRISM, or that our government, which evidently can't prevent unauthorized access or abusive use by those authorized to PRISM, should be entrusted with ineffective superficial rubberstamp oversight of those with a demented lust for God-Like intrusion into the privacy of non-terrorist citizens.

Orchestrating honed sniper skills en masse to simultaneously assassinate dozens of anti-public politicians and judges along with any purchased replacements could once again make integrity priceless.

PRISM makes military firepower less pertinent.  To evade PRISM, an effective rebellion must coordinate without the use of the internet, land lines, cell phones, license plates, credit/debit cards and travel with cash or steal identities and evade view of millions of surveillance cameras.  Secretive societies must ressurect.
