Edward Snowden to Apply for Asylum in Russia

Edward Snowden is alive and indeed at the Moscow airport. There is now proof as he is right now holding talks with Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International at the airport. A photo on The Guardian shows Edward Snowden with Sarah Harrison from Wikileaks. Apparently his plan is now to apply for temporary asylum in Russia to make sure he is safe.

He still wants to go to Latin America at a later stage, but he says the US and Europe are acting outside the law to prevent him from traveling.

It's rare that he ever talks to the media unless it's with a specific purpose of promoting a new Amazon product.  So, it's fun to watch his ice bucket challenge which doubles as a comedy routine. Watch the video if you don't want us to ste ...

Did a U.S. defense contractor help create the next generation of spyware weapons?

Source: Big Government

The Washington Post relates a fascinating little cloak-and-dagger story that ends with a heck of a punchline: a U.S. defense contractor was apparently working with the dirtbags who create spyware and virus programs to develop new tools for spying on people, potentially both foreign and domestic. CloudShield Technologies, a California defense contractor, dispatched a senior engineer to Munich in the early fall of 2009. His ins ...

Wyden calls for constitutional protection for electronic records that go through third party

Source: Canadian Business Online

PORTLAND, Ore. – Americans are guaranteed the right to be secure in their paper correspondence, but online communication enjoys no such protection. That’s because the Fourth Amendment requires police to obtain warrants to search houses, papers, property and your pockets. But information sent and received online goes through a third party, and anyone with a compelling government interest has a much easier time getting their hands on it. In a speech Friday at a Portland tech conference, U.S. Sen. ...
