Julian Assange on Being Placed on NSA "Manhunting" List & Secret Targeting of WikiLeaks Supporters 18.2.2014 Democracy Now!
Top-secret documents leaked by Edward Snowden have revealed new details about how the United States and Britain targeted the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks after it published leaked documents about the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan. According to a new article by The Intercept, Britain's top spy agency, the Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ, secretly monitored visitors to a WikiLeaks website by collecting their IP addresses in real time, as well as the search terms used to reach the site. One document from 2010 shows that the National Security Agency added WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange to a "manhunting" target list, together with suspected members of al-Qaeda. We speak to Assange live from the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he has sought political asylum since 2012. Also joining us is his lawyer Michael Ratner, president emeritus of the Center for Constitutional Rights.

Glenn Greenwald

The other day I referred to those who "evince zero interest in the substance of the revelations about NSA and GCHQ spying which we're reporting on around the world", but "are instead obsessed with spending their time personally attacking the journalists, whistleblowers and other messengers who enable the world to know about what is being done." There are dozens of examples, one of whom is the author of a post thi

"Can you keep a secret? Join CSEC": Canada's corporate democracy 31.10.2013 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
It could be a self-parody, but it isn't. In the wake of the breaking scandal about Canada's espionage unit spying on the Government of Brazil, I realized I wasn't sure about the origins and mandate of the operation called Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC). I know we have a number of spy groups. There's the RCMP, of course, and CSIS, but the acronym CSEC was a bit murky. I found their website and the home page banner welcome: "Can you keep a secret? Looking for a rewarding career? Join CSEC." read ...

GCHQ: Chris Huhne is asking the right question | Michael White 21.10.2013 The Guardian -- World Latest
Huhne is on to something when he asks which ministers signed off GCHQ's Tempora programme in 2006-08 I spent the weekend with an old British friend, now resident in the US and well-versed in the world of espionage, spy-swaps and the inherent duplicity of secretive intelligence services the world over. He reinforced my view that, whatever doubts many of us had about the WikiLeaks affair or Julian Assange, Edward Snowden's data-mining revelations are of major importance to democratic debate. No wonder then that Chris Huhne returns to the attack in today's Guardian on the triple failure of the press, parliament and the law to address the real issue that Snowden's disclosure highlights, the unaccountable accretion of sensational eavesdropping technology by the NSA and GCHQ. I can't agree with the disgraced Lib Dem ex-cabinet minister when he calls this development the most catastrophic power-grab in British peacetime history. That strikes me as much hyperbole as the security ...
