Snowden Documentarian, Laura Poitras, Endured Years Of Government Surveillance, Harassment

Snowden Documentarian Laura Poitras Has Endured Years Of Government Surveillance, Harassment, And She Doesn't Now If There's More To Come. Between July 2006 and April 2012, Poitras was “subjected to ‘Secondary Security Screening Selection,” detained and questioned at the United States border on every international flight she took.” When traveling from the U.S., when she was outside the U.S. traveling internationally, and even when she was traveling within the U.S., Poitras was “occasionally subjected to secondary security screening.” More than 50 times she was given this designation, which allowed Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents to subject her to extra scrutiny.

Obama’s ‘helplessness’ an act: Snowden reveals scale of US aid to Israel

The new Snowden documents illustrate a crucial fact: "Israeli aggression would be impossible without the constant, lavish support and protection of the US government, which is anything but a neutral, peace-brokering party in these attacks. And the relationship between the NSA and its partners on the one hand, and the Israeli spying agency on the other, is at the center of that enabling," Greenwald writes.

The terrifying surveillance case of Brandon Mayfield

But there s another danger that Snowden didn't mention that's inherent in the government s having easy access to the voluminous data we produce every day: It can imply guilt where there is none. When investigators have mountains of data on a particular target, it's easy to see only the data points that confirm their theories - especially in counterterrorism investigations when the stakes are so high - while ignoring or downplaying the rest.

Snowden, Greenwald and Wikileaks are winning

The Russians did a big favour for the freedom-loving peoples of the world, including those in the US who can still think with our own brains - The US Unable to win their case in the court of public opinion, the self-styled leaders of the free world resort to threats and bullying to get their way - which kind of sums up American foreign policy in the second decade of the 21st century. And the spectacle of US attorney general Eric Holder trying to offer Russia assurances that his government would not torture or execute Snowden speaks volumes about how far the US government's reputation on human rights - even within the United States - has plummeted over the past decade.
