Under Electronic Surveillance of US Special Services By Nil NIKANDROV

24 June 2013 — Strategic Culture Foundation

The CIA and the NSA (the US National Security Agency) whistleblower Edward Snowden (who temporarily had found refuge in Hong Kong and now [is someplace else]) has demonstrated once more the global reach of US electronic surveillance which, no doubt, is a kind of criminal activity. He looked really deep into what the NSA does and was terrified by the things he found out. So the man is on his way looking for a safe shelter to continue the revelations…

Boston Bombings: Was Tamerlan Tsarnaev a Double Agent Recruited by the FBI? By Prof Peter Dale Scott

24 June, 2013 —  Who What Why

TsarneevAmid the swirl of mysteries surrounding the alleged Boston bombers, one fact, barely touched upon in the mainstream U.S. media, stands out: There is a strong possibility that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older of the two brothers, was a double agent, perhaps recruited by the FBI.

US: One Step Removed From Full-Blown Fascism By Rob Urie

24 June 2013 — Greanville Press

The conspicuously nonsensical efforts by President Barack Obama and NSA spy chief Alexander to assure Americans massive corporate-government spy operations had prevented terrorist attacks were supported by only a few easily disproved lies.
