No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State

Glenn Greenwald ´ 1 REVIEW REVIEW é HELLOBUY.CO.ZA ´ Glenn Greenwald FREE DOWNLOAD No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State S widespread systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and conseuential news in recent history triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacyNow for the first time Greenwald fits all the pieces together recounting his high intensity ten day trip to Hong Kong examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for the Guardian and revealing fresh informatio I shouldn t be shocked that 99% of the reviewers writing here hail Snowden as a hero As someone who had the guts to do what had to be done After all if you don t share the same admiration for Snowden and don t approve what he did you are not very likely to read this book But I am still shocked nonetheless at the number of people who support this kid s behaviourI think civil liberties are enormously important but I believe Snowden is in the words of The New Yorker a grandiose narcissist who deserves to be in prisonSome of the New Yorker s article content follows because I find myself in agreement with itSnowden provided information to the Washington Post and the Guardian which also posted a video interview with him In it he describes himself as appalled by the government he servedThe NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything With this capability the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting If I wanted to see your e mails or your wife s phone all I have to do is use intercepts I can get your e mails passwords phone records credit cards I don t want to live in a society that does these sort of things I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded That is not something I am willing to support or live underWhat one wonders did Snowden think the NSA did Any marginally attentive citizen much less NSA employee or contractor knows that the entire mission of the agency is to intercept electronic communications Perhaps he thought that the NSA operated only outside the United States in that case he hadn t been paying very close attention In any event Snowden decided that he does not want to live in a society that intercepts private communications His latter day conversion is dubiousAnd what of his decision to leak the documents Doing so was as he or less acknowledges a crime Any government employee or contractor is warned repeatedly that the unauthorized disclosure of classified information is a crime But Snowden apparently was answering to a higher calling When you see everything you realize that some of these things are abusive he said The awareness of wrongdoing builds up There was not one morning when I woke up It was a natural process These were legally authorized programs in the case of Verizon Business s phone records Snowden certainly knew this because he leaked the very court order that approved the continuation of the project So he wasn t blowing the whistle on anything illegal he was exposing something that failed to meet his own standards of propriety The uestion of course is whether the government can function when all of its employees and contractors can take it upon themselves to sabotage the programs they don t like That s what Snowden has doneWhat makes leak cases difficult is that some leaking some interaction between reporters and sources who have access to classified information is normal even indispensable in a society with a free press It s not easy to draw the line between those kinds of healthy encounters and the wholesale reckless dumping of classified information by the likes of Snowden or Bradley Manning Indeed Snowden was so irresponsible in what he gave the Guardian and the Post that even these institutions thought some of it should not be disseminated to the public The Post decided to publish only four of the forty one slides that Snowden provided Its exercise of judgment suggests the absence of Snowden sSnowden fled to Hong Kong when he knew publication of his leaks was imminent In his interview he said he went there because they have a spirited commitment to free speech and the right of political dissent This may be true in some limited way but the overriding fact is that Hong Kong is part of China which is as Snowden knows a stalwart adversary of the United States in intelligence matters Snowden was then at the mercy of the Chinese leaders who run Hong Kong As a result all of Snowden s secrets may have ended up in the hands of the Chinese government which has no commitment at all to free speech or the right to political dissent And that makes Snowden a heroThe American government and its democracy are flawed institutions just like any other public institution But the US system offers legal options to disgruntled government employees and contractors They can take advantage of federal whistle blower laws they can bring their complaints to Congress they can try to protest within the institutions where they work But Snowden did none of this Instead in an act that speaks to his ego than his conscience he threw the secrets he knew up in the air and trusted somehow that good would come of it We all now have to hope that he s right

Glenn Greenwald ´ 1 REVIEW REVIEW é HELLOBUY.CO.ZA ´ Glenn Greenwald FREE DOWNLOAD No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State N on the NSA's unprecedented abuse of power with never before seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himselfGoing beyond the NSA Greenwald also takes on the establishment media for their failure to serve the interests of the people and asks what it means both for individuals and for a nation's political health when a government pries so invasively into the private lives of its citizens Coming at a landmark moment in history I was interested in how one person could possibly steal digital information from our government I never really found out by reading this book I did find out that the government has the ability to know a lot about us and our personal lives I also decided that you would have to live totally off the grid to have any real privacy which I don t think is even possible to do any longerWhat interest me now is if we have such capabilities to spy on people then we should know exactly what was happening with Trump et al Early on in the Trump investigation wasn t there talk of surveillance of foreign diplomats and didn t the Obama Administration ask the courts to release information as to whom that foreign diplomat was speaking to Did Trump collude with the Russians I personally don t believe he has the depth or knowledge to successfully do that While Greenwald makes Edward Snowden out to be the hero of the 20th century he Greenwald takes to task the The Washington Post and The New York Times for going to the government for input before publishing stories about their suspicious activities implying that we never get the truth because the media and government collude to lessen the impact of these stories Greenwald can in my mind s eye be a bit self righteous at times but mostly he is spot on I wanted to read No Place to Hide prior to reading How America Lost Its Secrets by Edward Jay Epstein whom has a totally different take on Edward Snowden and the theft of documents from the NSA apparatus This review was originally posted on The Pfaeffle Journal
