Happy New Year Amy Goodman!......Keep on bringing it in 2014!








Published on Dec 30, 2013

http://www.democracynow.org - The German publication Der Spiegel has revealed new details about a secretive hacking unit inside the National Security Agency called the Office of Tailored Access Operations, or TAO. The unit was created in 1997 to hack into global communications traffic. Hackers inside the TAO have developed a way to break into computers running Microsoft Windows by gaining passive access to machines when users report program crashes to Microsoft. In addition, with help from the CIA and FBI, the NSA has the ability to intercept computers and other electronic accessories purchased online in order to secretly insert spyware and components that can provide backdoor access for the intelligence agencies. American Civil Liberties Union Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer and journalist Glenn Greenwald join us to discuss the latest revelations, along with the future of Edward Snowden, who has recently offered to assist U.S. targets Germany and Brazil with their respective probes into NSA spying.

And for all the in depth coverage of news that gets little or no airing in our Corporate Owned Joke Fest of US MSM.

3. Creepy Government, it is like having a peeping tom in every house.

And now that we know that they have never caught even one terrorist, why are they doing this, breaking the law, abusing American citizens' rights and being paid BILLIONS of dollars to do so. There has to be a reason, but there is no longer any question that is not about our security. THEY are a threat to our security.

Amy Goodman is one of the last real journalists left in this country.
