US Secret Police Secrets

It's obvious that Edward Snowden was able to copy massive amounts of NSA secret data because at Booz Allen he had access to it. He has specifically said he could have revealed NSA material damaging to the U.S. but chose not to do so. There are reports that "more explosive material" will be forthcoming from The Guardian. [Booz Allen is in reality a CIA-NSA subsidiary now and quite international, but I doubt they deal much with the military docs on the U.S. secret wars around the world.]


Right now the U.S. is trying desperately to come up with any ways they can to criminalize him, stigmatize him, etc. This is SOP in these cases – as we saw in the Swedish criminalization of Asssange over night.

The cat and mouse game is in full play now. The strategies are complex but clear.

Wikileaks has released massive secret U.S. documents in batches and has promised a million more in 2013. Snowden is probably following that example, but the U.S. is hoping to give him a Stalin deal he can't refuse to stop the publication of the NSA crown jewels he may have in his possession and The Guardian and Third Parties have IF he is playing this game intelligently. [Americans generally do not realize that totalitarians like Stalin and Obama use extreme threats to get "confessions of guilt" in open court from their victims to deceive the Dumbos who still trust the totalitarian systems.]

IF Snowden and The Guardian continue to publish more NSA secrets AND get to the crown jewels, he could become as significant as Daniel Ellsberg, a claim that I think has already been made by The Guardian.

IF they do not deliver, this will all just be a flash in the U.S. Captive Media and lead to tighter security than ever and more and more atrocities. The Congress is already taking that totalitarian route along with most of the U.S. Captive Media.

The Guardian has been pretty steadfast on Assange in their own country, continuing to publish massively on him and the attempts to destroy him.

Assange is making strong statements in The Guardian about Snowden being a hero of truth and freedom. Looking good, so far.

But most Americans now are tuned out and don't give a damn what the System Does as long as they get their lollipops and booze and drugs and Media Pap, very different from the days of Vietnam and Ellsberg. Even IF he can publish documents on the horrific murders and everything else by the CIA, NSA, etc., I don't think most Americans will give a damn until the System Implodes, which it is rushing toward faster and faster by simply refusing to really reform anything and doing more and more of the same catastrophic things across the board. The U.S. has the same Totalitarian Sclerosis the Soviets died from. U.S. "Reforms" are just as vapid and silly as Gorbachev's jumping up and down on the Media about "Perestroika." Funny, but catastrophic.

Jack D. Douglas [send him mail] is a retired professor of sociology from the University of California at San Diego. He has published widely on all major aspects of human beings, most notably The Myth of the Welfare State.
