First the French.... then the Germans... now the Japanese.
« on: August 01, 2015, 15:25:46 PM »
I just wanted to try and keep track now of all the countries that Assange is trying to convince that the the US is covertly spying on....

    He gave a dire warning to the French.... and shortly after asked for his own "protection"

    Then he wanted to jump at the chance to be interviewed by German authorities in their inquiry into the NSA spying on them.... to try and convince them that they could potentially all loose their jobs by a US take over of their government.

    Now he is banging on to the Japanese, essentially trying to convince them that they are being covertly spied on by the US. 

     I just wanted to start a thread to try and keep track of this growing trend... waiting for more...

The last Russian Whistleblower got a bit too much of Polonium-Tea...

at the moment it does not look like they would leak any Stuff on Russia, China (The Snowden-Asylum-Fantasy-Lands). whatever they would leak I am pretty sure it wouldn´t worth a big story.  All we see from Snowden Trove by now after more than two years is confidentially labeled stuff on US-Allies. Everything is in connection to TPP-Country´s.

Maybe Snowden just has stolen 1.7 Million Files only on US-Allies because he love the USA so much? 
Imagine there is a Snowden figure in your Gov-network and that guy just got his hands on 1.7M files of NSA stuff only about NATO/US/TPP Allies? I mean, you want to change the world (yea that´s what They always claim) with confidentially documents on US and it´s allies only? Which world are they living in? It just looks like the poor Hackers again got caught by the Ravens of the Center.

At the moment They create a world where it should look like NSA is only spying on it´s allies. If they would leak documents on Russia or China they would expose their dirty little secrets too. I am pretty sure the Kremlin-Connection won´t be happy with that at all. It is totally unworthy what the NSA knows about it´s allies. Even if it´s in the daily news.

The real secrets are those from the hidden battlefield - we have seen nothing so far of any interest. what we see is counter-intelligence masked in the name of "good" for democracy "and the people" the press is being used as a whore and they jump on those Snowden files like bears on honey.

I expect more country´s to come. Spain, Italy (well maybe not so much on Berlusconi), Switzerland? Still waiting for Austria - the country is playing a center-role in Ukraine conflict hosting US Embassy Ambassador to USOSCE (OSCE is very active in East Ukraine/Ukraine and east. Europe).

I agree. The leaks are VERY focused on only exposing certain governments. Assange claims that his leaks do not differentiate between any country or ideology. He also thinks that the world is full of ignorant people that will never see right through him. 

   He is a fraud! Plain and simple. 

  When is he going to expose Russia or North Korea for human rights abuses?? Is he just going to go on and on trying to say that it is only the US, UK, and Sweden that are abusing people's human rights??? Or any other western government that is displeasing him in some way? 

  It is funny how he has all of his food inspected at the embassy because he is worried about getting a little dose of the 
"Polonium-Tea.." himself. Or maybe that is why he is not leaking about Russia.... because he knows that his life really would actually be in danger then. For now he would prefer to line his pockets with donations that he can get from people he can convince that the big bad US/UK governments are restricting his freedom and endangering his life. 

  I found it very interesting the other day that the Courage Found twitter account summarized who they are currently supporting...   

"Courage is now defending Barrett Brown and Lauri Love, in addition to Snowden, Hammond & DeHart. Please support!"


https://twitter.com/couragefound/status/624394306133061634


  They do not mention Assange, they are purposefully distancing themselves from him. They would never admit it, but it is obviously true. I actually do think that some of their funds are being given to Assange underhandedly. He does have a separate donation link through spreadshirt... but I would not be surprised if the Courage Found funds are also making their way towards him.

I neither trust Courage or WikiLeaks or Snowden or anyone else telling me "they are doing this for the people"  those people have no idea where their masters coming from. they hack into systems, steal data, get somebody to release it and sail through the web because on some point in our human history somebody thought it would be a good idea "to leak information". This may be a matter of point in the 50s or after World War Two and during the Cold War.

Leaking classified information to the public, whatever this information is, just speeds up another powerful party on this planet. And dear people as you are reading this you all know there are many Country´s you would like to see they would not have a single nuke.

In the begin I was excited by this leaking culture. it was like: "heeey there is someone doing something very good for the people!"
That is what I call the "cult-effect". every cult owns it´s sugar to attract new followers. what we see is the begin of a new religion. People believe in what they see, what they get, what they can touch. far away from the old gods they where told to worship - those gods that never answered.

People always believe in something. if it is not an god it may be a "thing", "the truth" - whatever. something everyone owns he just believes in and even if it´s just your soccer team will win this game even 2 goals behind in minute 90.

There was an NSA camp for students, GenCyber, One of the first message they learned was:
https://twitter.com/PCATTTweet/status/621871244514852864

This is all I have to say about Wikileaks and any others following this new Religion. They never thought a second about "what would happen if...". But they all will learn that if. I guess that´s just simple maths :-).

"Leaking classified information to the public, whatever this information is, just speeds up another powerful party on this planet"

 I agree, one of the back lashes to leaks in general is that somebody, somewhere, somehow will eventually use those leaks for very self serving purposes, and not at all for the common good.
 I just found an interesting article last night pertaining to the use of a WikiLeaks cable that was manipulated by some Iranian officials to try and smear a human rights rapporteur for the UN. Link below...

This is no minor point at all.
Did anyone in Snowden-wonderland thought about what could happen to Snowden having asylum in Russia until he is not useful for Putin anymore?

If Putin is behind the assassination of Litvinenko, Nemtsov and a lot other political figures How can you think Snowden is secure where he is? For Putin Snowden is a traitor. Edward is not his hero and his asylum is not in the name of "good".

If Russia would need it I am pretty sure they could assassinate Snowden if they could make any political favor out of it. They could claim it was the U.S. Or his death was "mysterious" at all. The people would off course believe it was the U.S. - they already have their enemy-profile planted in their brains due to leaking of sensitive informations in an coordinated interval since two years.

Snowden is not safe in Russia that's a myth. Assange is not safe in the embassy that's a myth too.

I am sure Snowden would be safer at home. Off course he would get a trial and we don't know the outcome. But he's inside the devils playground. 24/7 monitored by the FSB. You can bet on it it's not only about Edwards safety.

Snowden never was an agent. He worked as a contractor for the NSA. He may have an idea of techniques used in the Internet age but not at all about spying an spies and their games.

And Putin is an old Cold War warrior.

It is all too strange indeed. That Snowden is considered "safe" in Russia, when certainly he would be dead if he had been a "Russian Snowden" instead of a US one. I find it laughable that Assange really tries to sell all of this to the general public as well. That  really Putin is the innocent bystander to both Assange and Snowden being completely victimized by the big terrible USA. Assange is just stupid enough to believe that Russia may like him, and Snowden was just stupid enough to get himself trapped there.

Give Jules and his Team of "INTARRNETZ-WARRIORS" a little extra time to look closer at those documents - maybe they get it.

As we are talking about these Leaks - you may have found the hint in the paper before - So I show you more :)

Snowden in Japan

I added a section to my book for the next edition on Snowden in Japan, and I'm publishing it here for now. Comments and corrections welcome.

3. Snowden in Japan


Starting as a teenager, Edward Snowden developed a keen interest in Japanese culture, specifically in anime, or cartoon animation. He even took Japanese language lessons for more than a year and identified himself as a Buddhist when he later applied to the Army. Like a lot of young nerds on the Internet, he was drawn to the familiar exoticism of online comic books – the strangely Western-looking Asian cartoon characters with large, round eyes who combined super-hero adventures with emotional romanticism. Snowden even went to work for an anime publishing house called Ryuhana Press, located in Ft. Meade, Maryland. (The website closed in 2004 but can be accessed in the Wayback Machine .)
On his web site, Snowden created an anime persona – an older father of two children – and talked about his love for the role-playing martial arts game Tekken, which he was said to be good at:
Welcome to the Book of Ed, your stay here should be a religious experience, I assure you. ...probably about Tekken, for now, anyway.
I like Japanese, I like food, I like martial arts, I like ponies, I like guns, I like food, I like girls, I like my girlish figure that attracts girls, and I like my lamer friends.
That's the best biography you'll get out of me, coppers!
His virtual calling card contained the following information – but like a lot of kids he forgot to change his actual birthdate to match his fake age:
 
Name: Ed Snowden
AKA: Edowaado, Phish, The True HOOHA
Ryuhana Job Title: Editor/Coffee-Boy
Age: 37
DOB: 6/21/83, The Summer Solstice, the Longest Day of the Year
Fighting Styles: Ni-Ten Ichiryu, Muay Thai, Brazilian Juijitsu, Girly Biting and Scratching
Theme Song: The Natural Playboy
Accessory Fetish: Colored Sunglasses (Purple)
Children: Two sons: Lashawnda and Tamiqua; Ages 11 and 12 respectively.


Among the links he featured on the front page of his website on June 20, 2002, I saw the old web site of Lum the Mad – the persona of a famous game designer named Scott Jennings. I caught up with Lum in Second Life, where his avatar is named Lum Lumley, and asked him if he had ever chatted with Snowden online or knew anything more about him than what we were seeing the press, mainly on Ars Technica. He said he had never heard from Snowden at all. Later, he mentioned on his Facebook:
I'm not sure what is weirder, that Edward Snowden was apparently a Lum the Mad reader who had a link on his ancient website, or that I was told this by a still-extant Prokofy Neva.
His friends had great fun with the idea, with one of them quipping in game lingo, “Now that you mention it, he camped a Russian airport like he was waiting for the Ancient Cyclops to spawn.”
Another said with unwitting insight, referencing a popular role-playing game infamous for its exploiters, “ Did he learn his morals from Ultima 4? Can this be traced back to RG?!”
The young Snowden also attended Otakon, the largest East Coast gathering of anime fans, in Ft. Meade in 2002. He wrote an aggressive fanboy’s post about it
I had a blast at Otakon, after rubbing anti-inflammatory on my bottom to remove the swelling the prices for admission and parking gave me. I hope the Orioles explode in an iridescent fireball of unparalleled beauty. I would say the high point of Otakon was Saturday night's Karaoke room with Karaoke Kate's rendition of "Voices" from Macross Plus. I had planned to do "The Natural Playboy" from Bust a Move, but time constraints told me to take a hike. I was also able to play one of the better Tekken players around (the guy from Kazuya Mishima.com) and actually get beaten (which is an accomplishment, I assure you). I also got to get scolded by angry, frustrated volunteers who really shouldn't be allowed in public to begin with as well.
Did anyone else ask a volunteer for help? I got sick of them and declared jihad on them, myself. Perhaps you guys should check the alternate entrances in MAT3K! Bwahahah! (I came in through an air vent).
 
Sounds like a typically impatient , fussy nerd (what incident set him off and got him scolded? what frustrated or angered the volunteers and why did he clash with them?). but at least he had some awareness, as he then wrote:
...I really am a nice guy, though. You see, I act arrogant and cruel because I was not hugged enough as a child, and because the public education system turned it's wretched, spikéd back on me.
Let the record show it…
Could a spiteful Snowden have made contact with more hard-core hackers bent on hacking the NSA or even Russian intelligence at Otakon or some similar mass conference? It would be the perfect milieu for either type of recruitment as there are swarms of talented coders into anime, part of a decidedly anti-establishment alternative culture, lovers of Ron Paul and libertarian extremism or other online anarchist ideologies of the sort promoted by Julian Assange.
But good luck trying to pick out his contacts – 26,000 people typically flock to these gatherings every year. And not only are there numerous conferences like this around the world making tracking difficult, the people in this alternative culture bristle at the remotest hint of any accusation that they – even with their anti-government views – have anything to do with hacking governments, let alone foreign espionage. In other words, it’s an ideal setting for hostile foreign spies to work given that sort of cover (and that is likely a reason for the NSA or CIA to show up there as well).
Reuters reported that Snowden “stated in a resume that he went to computer-related classes at Johns Hopkins University, a Tokyo campus of the University of Maryland and the University of Liverpool in Britain.” A University of Maryland spokesman did confirm that Snowden had studied at the university’s campus “in Asia” but declined to give more details. There is a campus in Tokyo but it’s not clear when Snowden was there. As for Liverpool, it’s not clear if he actually travelled there, as a spokeswoman for that institution said Snowden did not complete the course.
Snowden clearly wanted to use his computer skills to get a job that would take him to Japan. In an article titled “Edward Snowden is a Huge Nerd.” reporter Joe Coscarelli found a comment Snowden wrote on the Ars Technica forum:
In another post titled, "Has anybody considered working as IT security in Japan?" Snowden inquired about finding a job overseas. "All things considered, American certificates, especially in internet security, should prove to be extremely attractive," the user wrote. "There have also been a couple studies that show out of qualified applicants, blondes are hired more often in Japan." And later: "I summon your soapbox-strength opinions! Surely you can't be too busy debating gun control and dug-up bodies! I'm but a wee slip of a man who desperately searches for a scrap of interesting reading material! I want to expatriate! I want to expatriate with flair and clandestine meetings!
Snowden left the CIA in 2009 and began work for Dell, a private contractor, inside an NSA facility on a US military base in Japan.
Aside from the anime circuit, there is the related “hacker spaces” and “maker” movements – networks of nerds interested not just in computer code but hardware engineering and tinkering with various gadgets. The international hacker spaces movement is one that Jacob Appelbaum vigorously supports, and has spoken on this platform. The hacker/maker club at MIT, where Chelsea Manning and her then-boyfriend, as well as her controversial supporter David House all mingled -- possibly with Aaron Swartz – is also a place where Appelbaum intersected. Could Snowden have hung out at the Tokyo Hacker Space? There isn’t any evidence of him showing up in this close-knit community, but there are tons of geek conferences in Tokyo – notable W3C, the consortium that manages the World Wide Web, where convergences may have occurred. These should all be looked at – it seems possibly that while posted abroad without old friends or family, he would have looked at these types of hacker environments for activities and friendship – depending on how tightly there were controls on off-base activity in his job.
The several people with whom he edited the anime magazine back in Ft. Meade do not seem to be related to Japan itself, and they do not seem to intersect with him later, or with the hacker movements.
The Japanese media has turned up various people including an American ex-pat with whom Snowden was in touch online or in person, but as can be expected, they bristled, too, at the insinuation that they could have had anything to do with helping or harboring him.
Yet it was in Japan that Snowden began hacking the NSA – and there are some who believe he had help. What prompted him then and there to begin his fateful odyssey?
In a story date-lined June 9, 2013, the Guardian wrote:
Three weeks ago, Snowden made final preparations that resulted in last week's series of blockbuster news stories. At the NSA office in Hawaii where he was working, he copied the last set of documents he intended to disclose.
That would put the date at May 19, 2013, the day before Edward left his temporary rental home, to which he had moved with his girlfriend on May 1, and boarded a plane to Hong Kong. The Guardian story makes it seem as if Snowden did all his hacking at once around those dates and grabbed the files and ran.
Yet in August 2013, Reuters reported that Snowden had begun his unauthorized downloads in April 2012, a year earlier than reported, while working in Dell in Japan:.
Snowden downloaded information about eavesdropping programs run by the NSA and Britain's Government Communications Headquarters, and left an electronic footprint indicating when he accessed the documents, said the sources, speaking on condition of anonymity.
(I could add here that Jacob Appelbaum also made a trip to Hawaii in April 2012 – he mentioned snorkeling for his birthday on his Twitter feed – although evidence of their interchange in person or online before March and then May 2013 has not been discovered.)
Representative Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, has indicated his belief that Snowden had foreign help:
“Hey, listen, I don't think ... Mr. Snowden woke up one day and had the wherewithal to do this all by himself,” he said.
“I personally believe that he was cultivated by a foreign power to do what he did,” McCaul said.
Asked whether he thought Russia was that “foreign power,” McCaul said, “You know, to say definitively, I can't. I can't answer that.”
The direct fingerprints of such a power --- Russia or China – may not have been found – yet -- on the Snowden affair. But those who deny the tremendous advantage these hostile authoritarian regimes have gained from Snowden, or even the possibility of Snowden’s recruitment would likely insist on an impossibly high standard of proof. After all, we have seen how even President Putin’s own admission that Snowden met with Russian diplomats in Hong Kong wasn’t enough for WikiLeaks, the ACLU’s Ben Wizner, or other “Snowdenistas.”
If indeed, Japan is where Snowden began hacking (and we don’t know that yet for sure, we only have Dell’s word for it at this point), then much closer examination of his life there is in order by those who know Japanese and know the scene in Tokyo.
