Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, July 19, 2014

The American hero/traitor Edward Snowden has revealed that he witnessed "numerous instances" of National Security Agency (NSA) employees passing around nude photos that were intercepted "in the course of their daily work." Snowden said of his former co-workers, many aged 18 to 22, "In the course of their daily work they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work in any sort of necessary sense. For example, an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising position. But they're extremely attractive. So what do they do? They turn around in their chair and show their co-worker. The co-worker says: 'Hey that's great. Send that to Bill down the way.' And then Bill sends it to George and George sends it to Tom. And sooner or later this person's whole life has been seen by all of these other people."

I can only hope. If they aren't properly prepared with sunglasses and a well-dimmed screen, my white ass should cause at least temporary blindness and retina burning.

Serves them right.

Snowden: Pay attention to me or I'll get snuffed out.

Attacking the messenger seems like the best course of action.

If he gave my nudes to vald no wonder he is acting so irrational about Ukraine he is trying to compensate for not measuring up.

The messenger makes it a point of dribbling this stuff out. At the rate he's proceeding he can hope to stay in the spotlight for years.

If you put something in an email you might well stand on street corner and shouf or hand it out. That is how secure it is. The same with texting. They can get your tweets even if you delete them. Facebook is worse. A kid could probably hack them with kiddie scripts.

We are told this every year in our IT security awareness training.

Many companies have agreements with the NSA they cannot talk about.

I learned that long ago working for SIGINT.

And they do NOT want to see my lily white hairy butt anyway. But maybe they could use it in their enhanced interrogations to scare the crap outa people with.

If you want to take nude pictures of yourself and post them on the internet, you are already compromised.

Big deal.....

The NSA spies on their significant others, and the SEC watched porn....

If we wanted efficiency or privacy we would make the responsible for something.

There's more conspiracy freaks around here than at a Glenn Beck Convention.

If the NSA ever saw me naked, the crystal palace would have shattered to rubble.

I should hope the NSA saw me naked. My girl and I have repeatedly had sex in their carpark.

"There's more conspiracy freaks around here than at a Glenn Beck Convention."

this is one conspiracy phreak who knows a PLANT when he sees one. At least i'm not stuck in the obvious insanity of having to side with VP Biden, who with a straight face just told us an onslaught of refugees from the south is not only good, but essential for a healthy US economy; when the exact opposite is reality. (This rationalization by the #2 suit in the admin is an admission that it's intentional.)

The purpose of the NSA is to have stopped this influx before it reached the crisis level that it's at now. Not snickering & passing photographs around (that The Patriot Act has mandated), which degrades the dignity of US citizens, of all people everywhere, even those non-photogenic sexagenarians like me.

Snow'dThem: I got to keep saying stuff, or else I can't shill for donations, and also the Ruskies will get impatient.

[...] i maintain my opinion that attacking Snowden reveals a lack of understanding of or alliance with something very unsavory.

[...] (i would also mention here--as conspiracy reality has been again attacked--of a study posted on this board that was totally buried: "...a recent study published in Frontiers of Psychology ... concluded that questioning the official version of 9/11, and constructing an alternative explanation, is a sign of psychological health.")

AND... i formally apologize to CORKY and SOPHIEFOX for inappropriate name-calling for expressing the opinions to which they are entitled. That was wrong of me.

(i know the meaning of the Yiddish word i used & it carries an unfriendly patina; another Yiddish word has the same meaning & is used in a more affectionate context. i like both words.)

Perhaps in acknowledgement of the extremely limited attention span of the average consumer,
i.e., all the information at once could not be comprehended.

The shills jump all over the messenger like flies on a ----.

Not expecting any of them to get around to telling us why Obama continues to allow the NSA to violate our privacy.

That plays remarkably well into the mythos Eddie is creating for himself: We're all just too damned stupid. We need to be parented, and Eddie is just the man for the job.

Horse manure.

where did these photos come from? were the photos taken by the subjects themselves or with their permission and the NSA got ahold of them or were these photos taken somehow without their permission? like through a window or something like that?

as far as invasion of privacy goes, the distinction is somewhat important. People who take photos of themselves and post them somewhere on the internet....that's one thing.

photos taken without their permission at all.....that's another.
