The Fight between David and Goliath: Edward Snowden vs. the White House

Presidential Policy Directive No. 28 (PPD-28), «Signals Intelligence Activities» (1, signed by President Obama after Snowden's revelations, has only glossed over U.S. espionage activities. In essence the new directive does not change anything. This is especially noticeable after the appearance several days ago of a report from the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, an independent U.S. government agency.   The report, which examines the issue from both sides and is addressed to the President, among others, says that the collection and storage of telephone data by the U.S. National Security Agency only help in the war on terrorism to a small degree, are illegal and should be ended.  It seems that the rules for protecting human rights which Washington loves so much to talk about were not written for it...

Obama’s Cosmetic Changes for NSA Surveillance Programs

On January 17, 2014 US President Barack Obama gave a 40-minute speech at the Justice Department describing his plans to reshape the intelligence activities of National Security Agency and the whole intelligence community... The United States government is not going to curtail its intelligence programs. It believes that the existing technical capability provides a solid ground for their implementation... The governments of the countries, which cherish hopes to remain active world politics actors, should tackle seriously the problem of information sovereignty. The United States holds a dialogue only when faced by equal force, it ignores anyone it finds to be not strong enough. It strives to establish its supremacy in all commons, this time it is information space its efforts are focused on...

The Strategic Consequences of Edward Snowden's Revelations (II)

...While some time ago scientists said that creating a quantum computer would take at least 100 years, now, according to Seth Lloyd, a leading specialist on quantum mechanics from MIT, one could say that the goal will be reached within the next decade, but no earlier than 5 years, as the scientists still have a lot of work to do in this field. As with any great invention, quantum computers could accomplish many grandiose tasks, including the creation of artificial intelligence. However, when the main initiator of their creation is the NSA, it is not thoughts of the benefit of humanity that come to mind, but thoughts of the establishment of total control over humanity...

The Strategic Consequences of Edward Snowden's Revelations (I)

One of the most important world events of 2013 was Edward Snowden's revelation that the United States is attempting to keep all of humanity under surveillance using cutting-edge electronic devices. In the final days of last year, the former U.S. National Security Agency contractor addressed the international community in a televised speech in order to once again point out the seriousness of the problem. In his speech Snowden referred to George Orwell's novel ‘1984’, saying that the means of monitoring people described by Orwell (the novel was written in 1948) seem laughable compared to what is being done today...

How to Counter America’s Digital Hegemony

Thanks to the consistent and thoughtful policy of supporting high-tech sectors of the economy, in China they have done what for a long time seemed impossible: they have forced American IT corporations out of the domestic market and now are actively buying them up. Today such Chinese brands as ZTE or Huawei have become synonyms of success and power which are feared by all in the West.In its content production policy, China holds to two simple principles.Bloggers call the first principle "block and clone", which means "smart censorship". Its main distinction from "dumb censorship" is that the state, when blocking access to a foreign platform, immediately provides the possibility to use one just like it, but national. ...The second principle is to identify a set of key topics which, in the opinion of the Chinese leadership, could have a destabilizing effect on the country's life...

Desperately Seeking Snowden

Britain's spy-infested embassy in Moscow has taken the lead among the "FIVE EYES" signals intelligence allies to locate the whereabouts of National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden in Russia... Britain's apoplectic reaction to Snowden's disclosures was on display during testimony before the British Parliament when Britain's top three intelligence chiefs -- John Sawers of MI-6; Andrew Parker of MI-5; and Iain Lobben of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), the British counterpart of NSA -- accused Snowden and those who published his leaked documents of aiding Al Qaeda...

The Future of the Internet after the Snowden Affair

...Today the entire system for managing the Web is built on the technological dominance of the U.S., which undermines the majority of the efforts of other countries to protect national interests in cyberspace. The total dominance of such American IT companies as Google, Facebook or Microsoft, which actively cooperate with the NSA and other U.S. intelligence agencies, make «digital sovereignty» even more illusory. Most likely the European Union will reconsider its entire conception of the construction of the European information society, which clearly does not meet modern security requirements. What the new model will be like is as yet unknown, but apparently it will herald a consistent departure from extreme liberalism, which has discredited itself in the conditions of the total cyberwar which the U.S. has started against the entire world...

The House that Uncle Sam Built is Developing Cracks

...The house that Uncle Sam built is developing serious cracks in a number of directions: there is growing conflict in America’s relations with the majority of its allies; the possibility of US military intervention in international crisis situations without a UN mandate is tapering off; the US economy, which is built on the completely unbacked dollar, is being perceived as a threat to the global economy; the mood of protest is intensifying in the US itself, and there are large enclaves appearing in a number of major cities in which legitimate power is, essentially, no longer valid; and signs are increasing that there is a schism in America’s ruling elite...

Revelations of Edward Snowden – Geopolitics and Lessons to Draw (I)

As a rule the discussions related to what has been revealed by Edward Snowden about US global electronic surveillance boil down to violations of human rights and illegal interference into the private lives of millions in different parts of the world. If it were all about it, then the White House would not set so many store by the case and raise the issue of Snowden’s extradition to the top level of interstate discussions and even go as far as to cancel summits. Barack Obama was scared enough to cancel his appearance at international forums, like it was in the case of the recent APEC summit, for instance. The reason for the Washington’s concern is different: Snowden has revealed the extent of control exercised over countries and peoples, something that changes the very perception of the contemporary world and spurs the efforts of the humanity being «under test» to seek the ways to counter such nefarious activities...

How NSA Penetrated Latin America Telecommunications Networks

Thanks to the documents provided by National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden, the activities of a little-known branch of the U.S. intelligence community, the Special Collection Service (SCS), are becoming more well-known... SCS headquarters, in an office building bearing the initials «CSSG,» sits adjacent to the State Department’s Diplomatic Telecommunications Service (DTS). A secure underground cable that runs between the two buildings permits SCS to securely communicate with clandestine NSA listening posts established within U.S. embassies around the world. These NSA «out stations», also known as «Special Collection Elements» and «Special Collection Units» are found in U.S. embassies from Brasilia and Mexico City to New Delhi and Tokyo...

Kiev Regime Leaders to Face Hague Tribunal

Kiev has unleashed a war against its own people... The regime, that grabbed power in the heat of coup to quell the people’s aspirations for self-determination, is doomed to collapse. Those who are responsible for dozens of people killed on Maidan by snipers, as well as for killing the Donetsk fisherman and unleashing punitive actions against peaceful civilians, will have to face responsibility. The precedent to remember is the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia (ICTY). Having unleashed a war against its people, the Kiev regime has stepped on the way to finally face the International Criminal Tribunal for former Ukraine...
