Ed Snowden’s magic thumb drive and other NSA fantasies

Jon Rappoport

Well, they’ve solved the riddle. Ed Snowden was able to steal thousands of highly protected NSA documents because…he had a thumb drive.

This is the weapon that breached the inner sanctum of the most sophisticated information agency in the world.  

This is the weapon to which the NSA, with all its resources, remains utterly vulnerable. Can’t defeat it.

NSA bans thumb drives, but certain special employees are allowed to use them.

Would Snowden have been in that elite circle? He was an outside contractor who’d been assigned to the NSA, and he was only there for four weeks, on his latest tour, when he did the infamous deed and then departed, never to return.

Not only did Snowden stroll into NSA with a thumb drive, he knew how to navigate all the security layers put in place to stop people from stealing classified documents.

Far more likely? As I described in my prior article,Snowden was really working for his former employer, the CIA. People at the CIA were able to steal those NSA documents, and they handed them to Snowden. All part of the endless turf war between the CIA, NSA, and other intelligence agencies.

Moving right along, Barbara Honegger, a former analyst at the White House during the Reagan years, makes a crucial point: US intelligence agencies can get around domestic spying laws by allowing other countries to spy on US citizens.

England, for example. This scandal is sitting there ready to explode.

NSA works out a deal whereby British agencies can access electronic communications in the US. Then, the Brits give the tons of data to NSA. Therefore, NSA didn’t directly steal.

It’s “sharing.”

“Oh no, we didn’t steal. We allowed other people to steal. Then they gave us what they stole. Of course, we are also, in fact, stealing and spying in the US, 24/7, but that’s another story for another time…”

It’s called redundancy. NSA spies on Americans, the Brits spy on Americans, and NSA stores everything, just to make sure they’ve covered all the bases. Twice.

Taking this one step further, NSA would be spying on British citizens, too. That’s “reciprocity.”

Here’s a fantasy for you. Terrorists all over the world were just shocked into a panic, because Ed Snowden “told them” the NSA has been spying on the Internet.

Therefore, all those emails, photos, and videos the terrorists have been sending to each other online for years? Spied on. Intercepted. Wow. What a revelation.

The terrorists never considered that possibility before. This is what Pentagon, NSA, CIA chiefs, and incensed Congress people would have us believe.

Let’s see. Terrorists just realized the Internet isn’t safe. Jack and the Beanstalk. Two fairy tales. Hold one in each hand. Weigh them. I’d believe Jack and the Beanstalk over the other fantasy, if I had to choose.

Author John Loftus, several years ago, pointed out that there already existed miles of incriminating data on the Muslim Brotherhood in US intelligence-agency files. Yet nothing was being done about it.

In other words, tons of NSA data on innocent Americans were being collected. And the valuable stuff on guilty parties was being ignored. A real laugher.

Imagine the sub voce reaction of the Muslim Brotherhood:

Brotherhood spokesman, Mr. Cash On Delivery, Jr., stated, “We in the Brotherhood have nothing to fear. We’re all proxies. We fight for Western shadow elites. They pay us to destabilize countries to advance a Globalist-controlled planet. Internet spying? Who cares? We’re doing just fine. In fact, there’s a mile of incriminating data on us in NSA computers. Nobody does anything with it. Guess why.”

Then there is China. Snowden’s most recent leak reveals the NSA has been hacking Chinese government computers. Another walloping shocker. Can you even remain standing in the face of this one? Feeling dizzy with surprise? Sit down. Drink a glass of water.

The spy-vs.-spy scenario between China and the US has been playing out for decades. By now, it’s so complicated probably no one on either side understands it fully.

Yes, major thefts of vital info have occurred. But, aware of the ongoing hacking war, China and US have undoubtedly been cooking up whole databases of false and misleading information to be stolen.

It’s basically a jobs program. And Snowden’s revelation about it is about as stunning as sunny weather in Palm Springs.

John Young, at Cryptome, correctly indicates that the overriding issue in the Snowden affair is “architecture.” The actual structure of spying, the whole machine. If Snowden comprehends that, then we’re talking about something worth revealing.

Not just the US machine, but the global apparatus. The interconnected spying system collectively employed by many nations.

Snowden seems to be saying he has this knowledge.

I have doubts. I’d bet against it. I think he’s inventing script.

Still waiting to be uncovered? NSA spying to collect elite financial data, spying on the people who have that data: the major investment banks. NSA scooping up that data to predict, manipulate, and profit from trading markets all over the world.

A trillion-dollar operation.

Snowden worked for Booz Allen, which is owned by the Carlyle Group ($170 billion in assets). Carlyle, the infamous. Their money is making money in 160 investment funds.

A few of Carlyle’s famous front men in its history: George HW Bush, James Baker (US Secretary of State), Frank Carlucci (US Secretary of Defense and CIA Deputy Director), John Major (British Prime Minister), Arthur Levitt (Chairman of the SEC).

Suppose you’re one of the princes in the NSA castle, and Ed Snowden has just gone public with your documents. You’re saying, “Let’s see, this kid worked for Booz Allen, which is owned by the Carlyle Group. We’ve been spying over Carlyle’s shoulder, stealing their proprietary financial data. What are the chances they’re getting a little revenge on us now?”

Yes, you’re thinking about that. You’re looking into it.

Scandals, and how they’re presented to the public through the press, are rarely what they seem.

The players are different, their motives are different, and they’re trading blows in a different arena.

They’re accessing the Matrix and manipulating it at levels invisible to the general public, who are trained by mass media to look in the wrong direction.

The NSA, CIA, and Carlyle would be settling their differences behind the curtain.

  1. Snowden’s revelation is just another step in the conditioning process.

    The less obvious revelation (what they’re trying to teach you) is that “it must be perfectly okay to spy on Americans, because they’ve been doing it for a decade without using the information against us”.

    The fact that it’s been going on for so long is enough to convince most Americans that it’s okay for it to continue, and it probably has to be revealed now if they’re about to start using all that data, which will expose the spying program in court anyway.

    If you’re dragged into court, be prepared to answer for things you said years ago, because they’ll probably use this info to make any dissidents appear to be violently insane.

    1. I believe you are correct JR. They store all the data and when you stumble on to their radar screen, they can pull up everything they have on you to use against you.

    2. I don’t believe Snowden went to Hong Kong to ‘defect’ ….I believe he was under the impression that the extradition status there was ‘in limbo’.. and thought he’d be safe – for now..

  2. like all rats who pretend to jump ship as its going under

    look here not there

    the heros are here to save us

    ugh! we’re screwed

  3. Anyone else notice that Rapaport is claiming it is the UK spying on Americans and sharing that with the NSA? I wonder why he didn’t mention Israel. Not a word about Israel. Hmm. Why would that be?

    1. I posted Naomi Wolf’s article yesterday (My creeping concern that the NSA leaker is not who he purports to be)in an attempt to be objective….that being said I was shocked by it

      and this isn’t Jon Rappaport’s writing about him as well…..in this Snowden had a USB drive.?…it’s the first I’ve heard of it…..

      beware of history being ‘written’ by those ‘guessing’

    2. does he really have to mention Israhell? maybe he understands that by saying britian, russia, china, united states, it is just understood to anyone with a brain cell, they are zionist puppet regimes??? i dont know, not speaking for him, jus sayin.

          1. Nah….I’m not a specialist in anything, but then I’m a perfectionist that has learned to be careful…

          2. Well Mad Angel on FB, where do we go from here? It’s become obvious the Edward “Snowjob'” is just that, a snowjob to manipulate outrage at the abuses of power. If he were “legit” he’d be dead. Big “catfight” at high levels in NSA/CIA.

  4. i am SO glad there are still intelligent people out there seeing through this bullchit charade, all the edward “snowjob” is our HEEEEERO crap is making me sick to my f#@kin stomach, and i have been incessantly demonized for pointing out that this guy is nothing more than another controlled opposition cog in the PROBLEM REACTION SOLUTION machine being constantly crammed down our throats, and rammed up our asses simultaneously. when o when in the HELL are these f#@kin americans gonna wake up to the fact that if it is being paraded on the mainstream news, it is not only not good news, it is quite the opposite, these coward americans need a “hero” so f#@king badly, they will sit and wait for their “savior” until it is too late, rather than getting off their asses, getting in the streets, and BEING THEIR OWN DAMN HEROES. it is much easier to go with the whole “im just one person” narrative, than getting out, putting your ass on the line for your, and more importantly your CHILDREN’S FUTURES, and realizing that when people finally do this, there will be 100,000,000 people in the streets, which constitutes the LARGEST ARMY IN THE WORLD BY FAR, and the end to this police state, and one world govt. would be well on its way to ending. YOU ARE GONNA HAVE TO RISE TO YOUR FEET, RISE TO THE CHALLENGE AMERICA, AND SAY NO!!! WE WILL NOT PUT UP WITH THIS ANY LONGER, AND THOSE COMPLICIT IN THESE TREASONOUS ACTS MUST BE TRIED AND IF CONVICTED, PUNISHED!! NO ONE ELSE IS GONNA DO IT FOR YOU, AND THE TIME IS RUNNING SHORT, THE CHOICE IS YOURS!!!

    1. Yeah well….. that rant reminds me of a photo circulating on FB

      one side is Barack and Janet with the caption “see something – say something”

      on the other side is Snowden with the caption “did”

  5. I don’t know if Snowden is legit or not. He comes across as straightforward and honest to me. God watches over drunks, children, and bold fools. My life is living proof of that, all three.

    I was talking about Jon Rapaport not mentioning the elephant in the room, and trying to deflect it to England. That is not straightforward, and cast a heavy shadow on his commitment to the whole truth.

    I believe there are honest, honorable, and brave people working in and for government. Not that many, but some. Call them moles. Biding their time until the time is right, under divine protection to a degree. I’m hoping the time is right now, and the truth will start coming out in a torrent.

    Whether or not the American people have been zombified, beyond hope of fighting back, by the media and education system is the big question. Those the media taught you had changed the world for the better, Gandhi and MLK, wouldn’t fight, would they? Fighting isn’t nice. Violence is bad, non-violence is good. You want to be good, don’t you? Then have peaceful little marches and carry signs and chant things. Make sure you have a permit though, and pick up all of your trash. Gandhi had permits, didn’t he?

    1. Gandhi got a bullet in the back of the head, that was their “re-education” plan for him. All of us who speak truth to power make a choice about where we stand. As for Jon Rappaport, I’m still waiting to see.

    1. Hey #1, I’ve heard Henry quote him on the “Word”. I was just out for an evening “stroll”.

    2. Yep #1 Rappoport is good. I didn`t even comment on that Mad Angel on FB because of her comments. Some people are trollin` I think eh #1, they will hang themselves I guess.

      1. Personally, I think some of the best articles I’ve posted were by him. I’m surprised you haven’t noticed his name before now.
