Frontline, May 2014. After 9/11, the government established massive domestic surveillance, including collecting and analyzing the entire internet fire hose of information.
Starting with the hack of Glen Greenwald's email account, this is how The Guardian established contact with Ed Snowden. The biggest whistle blower in the history of the United States, the secrets of the NSA were turned over for everyone to see.
Everything started with Ed Snowden establishing contact in Hong Kong with reporters from The Guardian.
Before The Guardian could turn over these documents, they had to scrub them for sensitive information that they shouldn't disclose. The problem was where do they draw those lines? What's acceptable and what's sensitive?
The Program was started by the NSA immediately after Sept. 11, 2001. From that point on, domestic surveillance became fair game in the interest of national security.
It was started in complete secret. The Program was written by the Vice-President's attorney. Dick Cheney designed the order which authorized The Program. George Bush signed it. The order was hand carried to the head of the NSA at Fort Meade.
Starting with collecting internet data, The Program expanded throughout every facet of domestic life in the United States.
I love love love this doc, but it seems a big part of it is propagating justification for the laws and policies that were unessasarily broken. If you break it down, no terrorist attack of significance was ever stopped by the careless lawless surveillance.
There's a much better documentary (on Netflix) about preventing 911.....it's called "A Good American." This one doesn't mention that Michael Hayden and the top brass at the NSA were responsible for nixing the functional Thin Thread program and giving the project to Hayden's friends at a Beltway Bandit company called SAIC. SAIC created their own Trailblazer software, which didn't do the job to prevent terrorism. 911 happened AFTER the NSA started letting SAIC handle the data collection. Hayden and his SAIC buddies took advantage of all the money Congress gave the NSA to solve a problem that was already solved.
The poor, befuddled, hapless Pentagon brass and patriotic politicians, caught flat-footed by this stunning and completely unforeseen attack. A staggering load of unbelievable bullshit, of course. Bush and Cheney were incompetent at the very least, or complicit at the worst. Snowden is one of the greatest heroes this nation has ever known, and the American people now know D.C. is little more than a festering pit of traitors.
these are sick actions of a twisted broken system...the people that are telling all are absolutely correct.. anyone know why i can't look at peoples replies to comments? america doesn't have any friends in the world, just interests.. very sad for you american citizens.the hidden trials and holding people without charges and that stuff is the same stuff stalin,mao,kim jong un mousilinni,hitler,amin pol pot and alot of other horrible people and counrties practiced.. open your eyes ,looking at the flag first was the mistake everyone of the citizens in these countries made,,ignore all law and fairness and equality with no backlash or accountability.
Just take a look at the lies they told about Iraq and weapons of mass destruction, or the Gulf of Tonkin incident that did not happen. Just an excuse to kick off the Viet Nam war. I don’t care if the NSA DO READ THIS. THEY ARE THE CRIMINALS. Not Edward Snowden. We Australians have been following the USA into every shit sandwich that their corrupt government feels like creating. We are not on the wrong side, we are the wrong side.
It blows me away that really no one knows who Prescott Bush is a man who worked hand in hand with the nazis and this is the family who runs the country along with his scumbag buddies ,and Salem bin Laden was in the oil business with them ,and there calling snowden a traitor.give us your oil or well fill ya full of democracy makes me scared and physically sick and worried for my children's
Thanks to these brave leakers-they are true patriots. This series is so well done-almost like a mystery movie the suspense they build. Gorgeous documentaries and stories. They listened to my conversations, that's when they'd take a nap from boredom.
Trillions of Dollars spent by NSA and NORAD. And they were beat out by goat herders. These assholes (Gates, Haden, Cheney) should have just hung themselves in decency like they would have done in China.
The cost of three lives for the wicked governmental chess move to monitor total civilian surveillance in order to move forward with the next steps of the NWO.

"But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out."
I don't understand those people who call Snowden a traitor. Traitors always seem to figure out a way first before taking actions to get away with their actions, whereas Snowden carefully reviewed the consequences probbaly lamented long and hard on the punishment for doin g what he was planning, but my guess is he countered with siding with his fellow citizens instead, and basically sacrificing much of his freedom to act for 'We the People' he truly is a real Patriot, not the Bush ass in his airflight suit on a carrier prancing around as if he's special. Edward Snowden is indeed a humanitarian.One of the good guys.
How come all those people involved with starting up this plan can freely speak now, while snowden is seen as a whistleblower??? How come USA gets away with this twice??? Didnt Thomas Drake already pointed something sort alike out early after 2001 when they used thin thread without decoding
this documentary is bullshit for the reason these NSA people are blatantly lying on camera to a population they are employed to protect and serve. Edward Loomis having worked for the NSA for almost 4 decades displaying crocodile tears, he surely knew what was going on being a veteran of the NSA. Many, many Americans know what happened. PBS thanks for putting this together but a lot of the content will not fool the well-informed population of this once great Republic.
the american ppl have been getting conned and lied to by the US govt since the declaration of independence. washington wasnt the 1st president he was the 2nd and was never elected. he used the army to get rid of the president that was elected and made himself president. they get told it was about tax which is a lie it was the merchants who wanted independance cause they got caught committing treason by over charging the settlers for stuf they sold them claiming it was tax. fact is the settlers were being subsidised by england and not paying any tax at all. the kings law was the merchants had to buy from the settlers at double the normal price and sell to them at half price and the king would make up the differance out of english tax payers pockets. 90% of the collonists voted no to independence but got it anyway. pearl harbour was known about months before it happened by roosevelt but didnt take any action to prevent it cause he wanted it to happen to get the war he wanted. CIA planned 9/11 in the 60,s. the plan was to highjack some planes and crash them into cities in florida and blame it on cuba. JFK found out about it and got killed not long after. that plan went ahead on 9/11 instead and blamed on muslims to justify an illegal war. NATO got dragged into it with threats of being nuked if they didnt join the war.
UK is not much better than the USA on spying on everyone. CCTV cameras everywhere watching everything that we do. phone calls being monitored emails being read all in the name of security. but its not terrorists doing the terrorist acts its the govts to get wars going. Well not so much the govts as they r just puppets and doing as their told by the un elected shadow govts who really control everything.
American history is nothing but a bunch of evil conspiracies. Until today, people are murdered for trying to unlock the mystery behind JFK's assassination. Plus the 911 conspiracy that was purely the work of USA and Israel. Just what does America stand for?
Former NSA cryptologist Edward Loomis says at 1:29:15 that as a "former Eagle Scout, retired Scoutmaster, and devout patriot who had served his country for 43 years..." LOL. The only problem is that the Boy Scouts of America, contrary to his suggestion, is neither an agency nor a branch of the U.S. Government or U.S. military. BSA, is not even associated with the U.S., as it is basically a non-profit organization based on the ideas of a Britisher named Lord Baden Powell. That said, being an "Eagle Scout" never mind a "Scoutmaster" doesn't count toward retirement points either in the U.S. Civil Service or the U.S. military. His suggestion that Eagle Scouting and being a Scoutmaster are inherently patriotic activities are simply false and anachronistic ideas reminiscent of a bygone era from the Depression when Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts were considered a national institution of sorts that were used to rally and encourage youth into community service and civic virtue. Nowadays, no one gives a crap.
What a bunch of horse shit..talk about the ol' oh -key doke...hog wash all of it...like the criminal helping you find your own stolen goods...Bush and Cheney must've been laughing their ass off..quack quack quack !!
Im so sick of these unelected pricks messing with our freedoms! Do you honestly expect me to believe metadata only uses anonymous trending and not specific people by name? Do you think we are all stupid?
Yahweh has revealed in detail history of our solar system top to bottom.
I work with an angelic elite warrior faction of The Most High God Yahweh and we have the Antartica sealed and on lockdown regarding the angelic artifacts discovered. Will I be interviewed on X Files? Of course not. These You Tube videos are satanic lies. Most are made off planet by Lilith. When u see these vids promoting lies ask a warrior angel to destroy that channel addressing Yahweh in Yahushua name.
Lucifer had intended to use that technology Antartica during his RFID chip enforce next year.
Who made those artifacts?
The solar system was heaven @1time. These archeology finds are angelic. These goose chase videos on You Tube are a waist of time. These videos are made by fallen angels themselves.
This video is lies. Yahweh explained 2me Giza is His. Fallen angels produce all these videos that lie 2our children. 2find fallen angels on You Tube, follow thpopularity trail. Follow thmoney trail. They are very skilled charming producers. They possess an obvious over riding void however. They never mention Yahweh legitimately if at all. Dinasaurs, endless question marks, phony time spans& "leave that4 u2decide" are their trademarks. Just2 give u an idea, behind thscenes, fallen angels literally tie up humans they can manage2 acquire &torture them while family members are forced 2watch. Texas hurricane, Yah informed us these angels kidnapped& are killing 50,000 people. Government is them. It is not your friend. FEMA is them.
If you see someone on TV with a camera pointed at them now, it's 1of them.
Yahweh is about to produce a world wide sign now& then He will remove His light off earth. &pole flip &Lucifer's RFID reign will begin. It will be a time horrific beyond imagination. Hence a quartz energy weapon is required (orgoneblasters) (Google HOW TO MAKE)
Lucifer built all the other pyramids 2mock Giza.. For example, in 1988 I was becoming worlds best guitarist. Lucifer stood up 12 guys to try 2replace me. Lucifer hates having2 inspire u with music. But will when cornered. Music now primarily only points2 Lucifer by design. If it is inspiring @all. Yahweh stated recently "Lucifer enjoyed destroying thspirits of all those who adored him." This video does exactly that. It extinguishes your spiritual light. 1vid claims Noah built Giza. Again 2make a biblical connection seem ridiculous.
Giza is like a stamp. It is creators Yahwehs mark& says "Earth is mine." Garden of Eden was just beside it &is under Gulf Aden now.
Eden was fenced& guarded bcuz Lucifer had dinasaurs in USA @that time when land mass joined. &there were dangerous soul less Neanderthals Lucifer made 2promote evolution.
Basically thsolar system was heaven once. Yahweh had 12 direct children, each child had, designed a planet. Lucifer was Lords elder brother. God created 2 warrior girls when Lucifer, then HALAYEL, began2 fall. These 2 live now on earth as warriors promoting a weapon all humans are required now2 build. Yahweh provides instructions orgoneblasters website.
After thwar with Lucifer, our 14 planets were laid waste. Lucifer's planet became our asteroid belt.
The angels secured Pleiades, Mercury, &th Sun. Yahweh's throne is in th Sun. Pleiadians u see,,, are devils mocking angels. Lucifer retreated 2Orion, tried2 re build thsystem. Yahweh then stationed near Eden &created Adam& Lilith who joined Satan &so Eve was then created.
Giza does not have Egyptian writings inside. It has Yahweh's instead& a camera verified it was built by thHebrew God.
Giza cannot be entered by humans however. Yahweh recently created multi dimensional creatures to guard Antarcticas angelic artifacts. Same with Giza.
Giza is a portal& has a king &a queen chamber inside.
Solomon used2 command demons 2aid in building 4 him. Yahweh employs them also. 4example Lucifer has been annointed2 enforce th RFID mark of thbeast. Lucifer has told us he will go door2 door 6 months 2a year. If u receive that mark it's a ticket 2a living hell. Hide during that time.
Yahweh is about2 flip earth's poles. Then RFID chip enforce will begin. It will clean earth of evil people.
Giza was white with a gold top. Thsame all seeing eye Lucifer has u thinking is the height of illuminati evil.
Giza originally had a winged lion in front. Lucifer mocks it with his Sphinx.
Yahweh's 2warrior daughters are about2 leave earth within days.. Shazzerazi, &Rashayel. Shazzerazi has a you tube channel where she is known as Sherry Shriner.
When u see videos like this1 or any information living 2people u can simply elicit Yahweh that an angel destroy thYou Tube channel. They will be glad2 do so.
(Lucifer influenced half thBible his name isn't Jesus. It's Yahushua. They used to call him Yasha in heaven.)
God is not in your churches.
"Lead my people back to ME."
If u watching this video u want truth. Ask creator to give u truth in all things. I am here 2 initiate what will be known as the you tube apocalypse.
Yahweh has an " RFID" to. It's babtism. Even Yasha got babtized. If u have not received thcreators mark, He cannot help u when Lucifer's forces come for u..
These videos exposing Satanism or defining our universe do so in the same way a rapist shows your child his penis elaborating on all its parts. Leaving us with graphic images and a college course on Satanism.
Do your active part as a simple prayer warrior& remember that Yahweh's orgoneblasters weapon burns these fallen angels among us, is doing immense damage 2them.
Even the white horse rider of Rev. was given a weapon. A bow. That was thLord. That bow represented Yahweh's orgone weapon. Use ONLY orgoneblasters recipe 2make it.
It seems that the "19 terrorists" were free to roam around with impunity without being detected prior to 9/11. They even had access, it seems, to walk around in wtc7 (maybe even wtc1 and 2), weeks before (months?), and plant explosives in the buildings for a controlled demolition...
Obama and Bush gave America's sovereignty over to the deep state and the money makers that control the shadow government..... Liberals and Republicans sold out our country to the globalists and to those that wish us harm.... Now patriots are mocked and branded as racists and Nazi's and an army of citizen's are paid for by soros and the like to burn our cities down and to create chaos. They have paid players on both sides trying to infiltrate groups from both sides of the political spectrum trying to create division and hatred between the US citizenry so when the time is right they can swoop in and take what is left of our rights and nation and sell it off to the east. the financial elite have had their way with our country since 1914 and now they are moving their stock over to China and leaving us broken and dwindled even though it was our nation and people who did so much to support this world... we have lost our place as stewards of the world and we allowed corruption to rot us from the top down.... Lord forgive us for what we have allowed to happen and what type of future we have left our children to inherit......
The real target of the terrorist are not the mutilated bodies the leave on the fields. Their target is the jewel of the republic, Bush and Cheney were sworn to protect the constitution but they did not...
The Federal Reserve is the biggest TERRIOST group to AMERICA! All those who work for the Federal Reserve and are U.S citizens and do not expose there secretly activities are guilty by treason. They have the power to collapse the economy and bring down this nation and move on to another country and watch it burn from abroad.
This move to replace the Federal Reserve is a very delicate situation.
We have The C.I.A, F.B.I, N.S.A and all kinds of other institution with initials who took an oath to protect the Constitution. We must use our forces to gather all the top brass behind the Fed. Res. Securer them all in one room and make them an offer they can’t refuse. The Masters of the Earth must be removed swift and fast. Money is there god. They have no, Code.
Personally, my life as an average citizen, is pretty boring and there is nothing I do or say that I care anyone knows or hears. If listening to my conversations or looking at what I view on the internet, the government finds exciting or helps divert some national disaster, then fill your boots. Maybe give me some inside information on how to make my average, staid life, a little more exciting. No really, I have nothing to hide. What is there that some are concerned about others knowing about? If anything can be used to help stop some who have evil on their minds, I believe those expected to keep us safe, should be able to use it in that endeavour. What I don’t understand is, the “Thin Thread” sounded perfect. Why was that ignored? Why did they over-ride that program?
There has to be inherent affinity to USConstitiion for there to a concern with the government blunders, which currently there is an spike of historical proportions. Sic semper evello mortem tyrannis....
The US has gone from being the liberator of the western world to it's tyrant. Not even a good, smart leader like Barack Obama had the wherewithal or balls to challenge what has become effectively, a military coup, America I am afraid has become a pariah state, its citizens no longer welcome in other parts of the world were it not for the reach of the sacred dollar, the true religion of Americans, and those (most) that aspire and lust after it. Thank God for good men like Ed Snowden, and others like him. (UK)
that's why Snowden is still alive because if they wanted him dead he would be dead that's why he's on a PBS special look at the money that's why I 911 is all wrapped up in it look at the money he's a fucking Pawn dude and he should be hung goodbye Snowden
these people are so full of shit with so much money and so little regard for anyone except for their own prodigy that's what's up survival of the fittest I've got it you don't fuck off I'll kill all you mother fuckers just to make a few bucks and that's exactly how they look at us look at what they're doing That's Not My Philosophy I can't stand it I won't have a part of it I stand up against it they can come fucking kill me if they want to and you know what if they want to come kill you really ain't too much fucking you can do about it
enough is enough is enough they want to give you this opportunity to vent so you don't actually do something about it I'm not that stupid and anyone of you out there that can watch what happened and have any type of understanding besides the third grade public school education what has to agree it's time to shake up your foundation
remember they used to show controlled demolitions as entertainment on television until 9:11 where they called Building 7 falling down while it was still present in the background shot and then they cut away and said oh we have technical difficulties yes they showed controlled demolitions I haven't seen one controlled demolition played on the television which I don't watch anymore as entertainment since 9/11 wonder why
the NSA was created after Pearl Harbor to plan the next attack on the United States of America we did this our leaders did this to us in order to achieve multiple aims and multiple goals are you that fucking stupid
I think the NSA were played & coerced. Looks like the NSA, as a national security functionary, were manipulated onto implementing a questionable policy, out of fear for national security.
Sad how we throw out all moralities, checks & balances when threatened. Instead of focusing on technicalities, we should focus of the big picture, who gains ?
The true rulers of America are liberal communists based in Switzerland, Brussels, and the UK. They are the global elite financial cabal. They subvert governments by putting "their" people into positions of power in the government, financial, and most important of all, in the educational systems. The way you take over a country is to brainwash the children who then grow up to believe the lies they have been taught. That is the source of SJWs today. Behind it all are the unlimited resources of the banksters. And people still wonder why governments are actively working AGAINST the populations they supposedly represent. Because their masters are the ultra rich banksters who are pushing for one world government and one world currency, controlled by themselves...
Its really sad to know that your own government is doing things against you. The US govt is now a certified bunch of crooks!!! Yet it demands from YOU to pay it thru taxing you!!! So what would that make of its own citizens? SLAVES
American governance got away with everything even the same 9/11 attack that was self fabricated and faulsly inspired terrorism acts. They have successfully blinded the American to a more inner purpose, they had to orchestrated something big to justify why they are involve in so many illicit programmes.
There are 3 major pitfalls with reaching consensus around the outcome of an event.
These fully specified, manipulation resistant, and publicly verifiable events form a necessary foundation for sound prediction markets. Without this foundation, prediction markets are subject to confusion, manipulation, and abuse. Though sometimes tricky, many prediction events exist that satisfy all of the criteria listed above. As the world moves forward into the realm of decentralized prediction markets, it will be important to keep in mind the pitfalls associated with many naive prediction events.

Capital Markets Blockchains Are Finally Getting Go-Live Dates.
Assembled in New York this week, a handful were even confident enough to give firm timetables for production. For those tired of blue-sky talk, it was refreshing to hear large-scale financial infrastructure projects discussed openly and frankly, in clear terms of where they are and when we can expect to see things going live.
Underscoring the seriousness of the undertaking, ASX recently produced an 87-page progress report. Roll-out is targeted for late 2020 or early 2021.
In the weeds.
The enormity of such a project may not be obvious to those unfamiliar with the creaky plumbing of the capital markets.
At the completion of phase one, DTCC will have nodes set up internally for every firm that it knows will run one, plus some general nodes that will take care of supporting the transactions and processing for the firms that do not wish to support a node of their own.
For this project, DTCC has taken a multi-vendor approach. Ethereum-inspired startup Axoni is providing the technology, with IBM helping to manage the project, and R3 providing best practice guidance on areas like selecting the right data models.
Luxembourg is the largest fund management hub outside of the U.S. The jurisdiction holds many trillions of dollars worth of assets under management.
The KPMG-led project includes banks like BNP Paribas, Credit Agricole and others, as well as over 400 asset managers. The technology used is ethereum-based Quorum, the popular open-source project run by JP Morgan.
