Our new Weapon of Mass Destruction

June 24, 2013

No wonder the Obama administration is in a tizzy over Edward Snowden. It turns out that the NSA spying operation offered the USA a weapon of mass destruction that no one else in the world has ever had.

It is bigger than the atomic bomb. The A bomb can destroy 100,000 people, or even millions of people at a time but it does so indiscriminately. The NSA spying operation can destroy anybody, anywhere in the world and do so surgically.

Keep in mind. American government officials are telling us that the NSA recorded everything we have said or written online or by phone and it has all been kept. Imagine how this information can be used to destroy or promote spies, diplomats, businessmen, heads of state? Black hat operations can destroy a career by revealing crimes or despicable behavior or just revealing secrets. White hat operations can protect a target from the conspiracy of co-workers or bosses. The US government can virtually co-opt anybody, anywhere in the world. What politician, what head of state, dare risk defiance? And for every one who resists the manipulation or blackmail, there will be five colleagues who will jump at the chance to have immunity or favor with a friend who has such a powerful weapon.

Now imagine that someone has pieces of that secret, on a thumb drive, and lands in Moscow. Is he safe? Are the Russians going to let him go? Or are they going to want that atomic bomb for themselves? Does Putin allow America to have such options and not he, himself?

How long have we had this weapon? Did we use it against Julian Assange, who was hit with scandal right after he published our embarrassing government documents? Have we already toppled governments with it? Has it been leaked to private companies? Non profit companies? Is that what representative Maxine Waters was talking about months ago with Roland Martin? Obama’s great weapon? The political game changer?

“A data base that no one has ever seen before in life.” Was it why the IRS was so frightened of nonprofit applications who used the word “Constitution”? Is someone seeking a monopoly on this new weapon?
