Breaking the Set presenter Abby Martin talks to Susan Lindauer, former CIA asset, and author of ‘Extreme Prejudice’, about her experience being scapegoated under the Patriot Act for blowing the whistle about 9/11 foreknowledge and Iraq.
Susan Lindauer Chief CIA asset covering Iraq and Libia in the UN from 1995 to 2003, gave advance warning of the 911 attack. Lindauer tried to testify through the ‘proper channels’ which lead to her arrest under the patriot act. She was deprived of the right to a trial, hit with secret charges, secret evidence, secret grand jury testimony. She was not allowed to know who has accused her of what crime, the government had no obligation to provide any evidence that a crime ever occurred. Lindauer was held in prison for a year, held under indictment for 5 years with no trial, and said she was forced to court with no attorney.
“Ultimately history will judge the decisions I made, I won’t be around because its going to take a while for the objective historians to show up” Said former president George W. Bush in an interview to CNN.
An interesting comment – its going to take a while for the objective historians to show up… Does this means there are NO objective historians around now? Where have they all gone? He also seems confident that they are not going to show up any time soon. Why is that? Anything to do with the programs he put in place? Or the bumping off of those Icaruses who dare fly close to the truth?

David Gregory & Glenn Greenwald Interview Transcript
David Gregory: Would that would meet the criteria for what you’ve outlined this morning on where he’d like to be?
Glenn Greenwald: Right. Well, venezuela has a democratically elected government, though it has lots of problems in its political system and i think the real question is why should an american who joined the U.S. military, worked for the CIA, worked for the NSA, why does he feel that he has to flee the United States simply because he stepped forward in a very careful way, goes to newspapers, reveals wrongdoing on the part of government officials? Why does he feel he has to flee? The McClatchy article answered that question; It said the Obama administration has been unprecedentedly aggressive and vindictive in how it punishes whistleblowers as enemies of the state. Why are whistleblowers being treated in this fashion?

In this interview published on RT on the 12 of June 2013, Binney talks of a ‘Naris devices’ which he claims “could take everything off of that fiber-optic line.”
If they wanted to find the bad guys… “I left that ability and capability with them, and they just threw it away. So instead they just opted to collect everything they could about everybody in this country, and one of the reasons that they would want to do that – the only one I could think of is they wanted to be able to leverage anybody in this country.” He says.
Glenn Greenwald interview Edward Snowden – transcript
Edward Snowden: My name is Ed Snowden, I’m 29 years old. I worked for Booz Allen Hamilton as an infrastructure analyst for NSA in Hawaii.
Glenn Greenwald: What are some of the positions that you held previously within the intelligence community?
Edward Snowden: I’ve been a systems engineer, systems administrator, senior adviser for the Central Intelligence Agency, solutions consultant, and a telecommunications informations system officer.
Glenn Greenwald: One of the things people are going to be most interested in, in trying to understand what, who you are and what you are thinking is there came some point in time when you crossed this line of thinking about being a whistleblower to making the choice to actually become a whistleblower. Walk people through that decision making process.

Take old and new scientific disciplines, mix in energy security, economics and geopolitics. Sprinkle some political ideologies seasoned with ulterior motives, and simmer for 20 years. And what you get is the climate change debate marinated in plenty of confusion, misinformation and divisiveness.
