Once again we have to just slam this up here without having time to read it all – all 337 pages of it! They really laid it on thick this time. We did read the summary and we have to say it all sounds so very clever. Why didn’t the great lawgivers who slapped together the monstrous Patriot Act think of this? Why did it take the courage of one man, Edward Snowden, to initiate such profound soul-searching in Washington?
The fact is that this too is a snow job. This 337-page tome was pulled out of the ass of a group of people hand-picked by the Obama Administration not in order to destroy the NSA’s vast spy operations, but to save them. Out of all the recommendations this blue-ribbon bunny of a commission has made, we’re absolutely sure that several of them will DEFINITELY by implemented, tout de suite: the ones outlining the tightening of security inside the “U.S. Intelligence community” in order to make sure that there will be no future possibility of another Snowdengate. Life as an N.S.A. analyst is about to get very unpleasant if these recommendations are put into action; it’ll be much more like the working conditions that Winston Smith “enjoyed” while working for Big Brother at the Ministry of Truth.
The rest of it is all a big fancy red herring made to look like a sieve so fine that only after the NSA shape-shifts through a thousand keyhole-sized legal loopholes will they be able to get to use any of their precious telephone metadata. In fact, there are apertures in this new legal sieve large enough for a blue whale to scoot through without his sides even touching.
We also wonder: what massive exposes remain untold as yet by Glenn Greenwald & Co. that made the rapid production and mass dissemination of this ream of lies necessary in the eyes of the reprehensible Obama regime? Can we look forward to finding even more appalling revelations about US spy ops coming down our chimneys this holiday season and beyond? We hope so!
We doubt if even 100 American workers outside of the Beltway will ever bother to read even the summary of this document, let alone the whole thing. But in the interests of keeping our handful of readers as informed as possible, here it is. Enjoy?
