Hey, remember NSA?

Oct 11, 2013

The Guardian is back on the NSA beat, where Ryan Gallagher writes that Skype is under investigation in Luxembourg over link to NSA. Jay Rosen said, “Skype and the surveillance state. A depressing tale of embrace and extend.” David Kenner with Foreign Policy Magazine said, “Skype under investigation for passing info to US intel orgs; ‘journalists should avoid Skype,’ says one expert.” Erin Cauchi at Al Jazeera English reacted with: “Skype's out now too. Shocker! Is nothing sacred? MT Skype under investigation in link to NSA.”

Remembering the man who started all this, the New York Times writes that C.I.A. Warning on Snowden in ’09 Said to Slip Through the Cracks. Michael Calderone at the Huffington Post wrote, “Snowden was suspected in 2009 of trying to break into classified computer files, officials tell NYT.” Gerry Smith also at Huffington Post said, “Snowden's supervisor wrote a negative report in his personnel file 4 years ago. No one at NSA noticed.” Jody Avirgan with WNYC explained, “Snowden helped show intelligence community catches everything, except the internal warning about him in '09 I guess.” Nick Baumann added, “Um this Snowden story is bonkers why didn't it get more attention?”
