PRISM: NSA Caught In Another Lie about #Snowden

The NSA had claimed that Ed Snowden hadn’t contacted superiors with concerns about their illegal activity. They released an email attempting to discredit his claim that he had raised concerns, and the email proves Snowden was telling the truth.

The Washington Post has published a response from Snowden to NSA’s release of this email. He says, “Today’s strangely tailored and incomplete leak only shows the NSA feels it has something to hide,” and, “I’m glad they’ve shown they have access to records they claimed just a few months ago did not exist, and I hope we’ll see the rest of them very soon.”

More specifically, “Today’s release is incomplete, and does not include my correspondence with the Signals Intelligence Directorate’s Office of Compliance, which believed that a classified executive order could take precedence over an act of Congress, contradicting what was just published. It also did not include concerns about how indefensible collection activities – such as breaking into the back-haul communications of major US internet companies – are sometimes concealed under E.O. 12333 to avoid Congressional reporting requirements and regulations.”

“Now that they have finally begun producing emails, I am confident that truth will become clear rather sooner than later.”

  1. Yep. Took a nail-gun to their own feet with that move.

    Didn’t even bother waiting for Melinda May to show up.
