For John, BLUF: The NSA Flap isn't over. Nothing to see here; just move along.
For those of you who think that Mr Edward Snowden is a national hero and so is Reporter Glenn Greenwald, for being a conduit for Mr Snowden's leaks of National Security Agency (NSA) secrets, here is good new. Mr Greenwald, along with Ms Laura Poitras and Mr Jeremy Scahill.
We are very excited to welcome everyone to The Intercept, a publication of First Look Media (FLM). The Intercept, which the three of us♠ created, is the first of what will be numerous digital magazines published by FLM.For those of you who wish to communicate secretly with any of the three, their PGP Public Keys are published with their bios in The Intercept.
As soon as we resolved to build The Intercept, we set out to recruit many of the journalists whose work we have long respected and admired: those who have a proven track record of breaking boundaries, taking risks, and producing innovative, rigorous journalism.
We have assembled a team of experienced and independent journalists and editors (see our masthead here). Our central mission is to hold the most powerful governmental and corporate factions accountable, and to do so, we will report on a wide and varied range of issues.
On the other hand, there are those who think that Mr Edward Snowden is a traitor and that those who assisted him are likewise.
By the way, here is the first actual offering, "The NSA’s Secret Role in the U.S. Assassination Program?" If you wish to read the article with the Top Secret documents redacted, ask me.
Regards — Cliff
