Leaks by Edward Snowden and the Guardian have put British hostages in even greater peril.

Every single time I see a photo of this filthy rat bastard, all I can think about is how pleasurable it would be to kill the shit. 
Slowly. Very slowly. Blood boils and I see that red curtain.

The Germans btw, have invited Edward Snowden to Berlin, as they have questions with regard to NSA listening in on phone calls and spying.
I doubt the ass wipe would risk possible arrest by leaving his new home in mother Russia.  Oh yeah, I’d also like to delete in the same long and drawn out manner, his lady friend who organized his escape originally.

I don’t suppose we can nuke Moscow to set an example to any others who defy the interests of American national security. Yeah okay, didn’t really think so but it was a nice thought while it lasted.

OK so …. This caught my eye last week and I think you should read it.
The only issue I would take with the learned prof is the idea of terrorists “communicating with each other only in person”.
I recall hearing that way back in 2011, shortly after 9/11.

An intelligence expert’s devastating verdict: Leaks by Edward Snowden and the Guardian have put British hostages in even greater peril

Professor Anthony Glees is Director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at The University of Buckingham.

The agony of Barbara Henning, the wife of the Islamic State hostage Alan Henning, so genuinely and painfully expressed two days ago, is almost too much to bear.
Her anguish is felt not just by the family members of all IS’s hostages and, of course, by the hostages themselves, but is shared in part by every decent person in Britain.
David Cameron has expressed outrage at this organisation’s sadistic killings. He has declared that the killers of the British aid worker David Haines, and the Americans James Foley and Steven Sotloff, would be ‘hunted down and brought to justice’.
He has promised we will drive back and ‘ultimately destroy’ the so-called Islamic State and the ‘monsters’ who fight for it.

Paraded

IS are masters of propaganda. The way they paraded Mr Henning as the next in line to be executed, and followed this with the two videos of British journalist and photographer John Cantlie, almost seemed to be daring our country, and daring our Prime Minister, to convert his fine words into real action.
There is just one major problem with what Cameron has said.

It is that we don’t know where the hostages actually are. Nor, for all this week’s U.S.-led bombing, do we know the precise location of this murderous organisation’s leadership or the whereabouts of its chief, Dr Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi (he holds a PhD in Islamic Studies).

The big question is: why don’t we know? Britain has one of the most sophisticated intelligence communities in the world, second in many respects only to that of America, with whom we share our information. But the Americans don’t know either. Why not?

I believe this is very largely the work of one man, and of one British newspaper — Edward Snowden and The Guardian. In June 2013, Snowden — a former contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency, leaked details via The Guardian about the extent to which GCHQ, our government’s listening post, could monitor electronically-transmitted messages and its capacity to search the ‘haystack’ of vast amounts of data in order to identify ‘the needle’ that might help them defeat terrorists.

By doing so, he and The Guardian implicitly warned all Islamist terrorists throughout the world to stop using their mobile phones, to stop texting their fellow killers, not to use social media — as they had been doing with the greatest possible skill — and to communicate with each other only in person.

The result was that the vital intelligence at home and abroad began to dry up, virtually overnight.

The Guardian happily stoked the fire in the interests of ‘civil liberties’ with the effect that the freedoms of Snowden and his chums — and of Islamist terrorists worldwide, including extremists in the UK — were set higher than those of kidnapped schoolgirls in Nigeria, or the hostages held by the grisly medieval fanatics in Syria or Iraq.

The scaremongering caused a gale to blow through Whitehall and Westminster. Political leaders became terrified of being accused of ‘snooping’ and our intelligence community was put firmly and decisively on the back foot by the politicians’ cowardly behaviour.

Heavy blows to the morale of the intelligence services followed on from the totally unjustified and absurd claims from civil libertarians that Snowden and The Guardian had protected Britain from turning into a Stasi-run state.

Nowhere was this seen with more horrifying clarity than in August 2013, when David Miranda — partner of The Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald, who was covering stories based on Snowden’s leaks — was arrested at Heathrow Airport.

Miranda had been with Snowden in Russia. He was on his way to see Greenwald and was acting as courier. In order to allow a steady drip of harmful information to seep out week after week, Snowden used him to take new and hitherto unseen secret documents to Greenwald — and he was held on his arrival in the UK after a tip-off from MI5.

Despite being arrested in possession of many thousands of top secret British files on his computer, he was allowed at the express wish of Downing Street to destroy the hard drive of his computer and was then released to fly to visit his partner Greenwald, who was living in Brazil.

Downing Street’s argument was that by insisting that Miranda destroyed the hard drive, they would ensure the classified files were also destroyed. But, inevitably, they had been copied beforehand.

The truth is that, not merely were our politicians permitting Miranda to destroy the very evidence which could have been used to convict him — a serious criminal offence in itself — they were also signalling that Britain would not legitimately use the Official Secrets Act to maintain the integrity of Britain’s intelligence gathering capacity.

The message went out, loud and clear, that we would not put up a legal fight against either Miranda or The Guardian to ensure that secrets about our capacity for electronic interception, a key part of intelligence gathering and at the core of Britain’s biggest intelligence success in World War II at Bletchley Park, would remain hidden.

Traitor

If this continues to be the attitude of our leaders, it will no longer be possible to use the Official Secrets Act to keep this country safe.

Snowden was technically not a British traitor because he is an American, but he betrayed the values of this country, lock stock and barrel.

He now resides in comfort in Russia, as the personal guest of President Putin. Unlike the hostages the Islamists take and butcher, he lives in comfort and safety, as do those from The Guardian newspaper who published his leaks.

Their success in doing so is an indication of our blindness. Their work has made ours so much harder.

It is my view that the only way now to get accurate intelligence to deliver justice to the beheaders, and to target our firepower in an area of Iraq and Syria the size of Britain, is to get British boots on the ground.

As long as David Cameron insists this will never happen, all that his policy will consist of is good intentions. And we know where they lead.

Our intelligence services have been severely compromised by their supine attitude towards Snowden and The Guardian’s activities. And our helplessness as the grotesque videos of hostages are paraded before our eyes by IS are a terrible reminder of this fact.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
