After weeks under heavy pressure for limitless spying on people
everywhere the U.S. intelligence services conveniently
detect a "threat" of some undefined future attacks. The
"detection", we are of course told, was only possible because of
limitless spying on people everywhere:
United States intercepted electronic communications this
week among senior operatives of Al Qaeda, in which the
terrorists discussed attacks against American interests in
the Middle East and North Africa, American officials said
intercepts and a subsequent analysis of them by American
intelligence agencies prompted the United States to issue an
unusual global travel alert to American citizens on Friday,
warning of the potential for terrorist attacks by operatives
of Al Qaeda and their associates beginning Sunday through
the end of August.
month ago we were told that the "terrorists" are
changing their communication because of the NSA snooping
Al-Qaeda and other terrorist are reportedly changing their
communication methods in light of the revelations by
whistleblower Edward Snowden about US led NSA 'surveillance
US officials said that virtually every terrorist
organization including Al-Qaeda is changing the way they
communicate to hide from the US surveillance after the
revelations about the leaks were reported in the media.
Private analysis firm IntelCenter's Ben Venzke said that the
leaks by Snowden serve as a wake-up call to extremists and
other hostile actors to analyse how they are working and
improve their security.
Is it not
a bit weird that just a month after that "wake-up call" and the
"changed communications" talks between "senior operatives of Al
Qaeda" are now easily detectable by the same intelligence
services that warned of those changes?
is it about these "terrorists" that the "threat" from them ends
after August 31?
"analysts and Congressional officials" the NYT mentions in one
short paragraph find this somewhat suspicious:
analysts and Congressional officials suggested Friday that
emphasizing a terrorist threat now was a good way to divert
attention from the uproar over the N.S.A.ís data-collection
Ahh - you
don't say ...
and that if it showed the intercepts had uncovered a
possible plot, even better.
would be even better if now, as a warning has been given,
something would happen to some U.S. embassy in the Middle East.
That then would justify the warning and of course also justify
the intelligence services NSA's limitless spying on people
everywhere that made the warning possible.
Hmm - how
much does it cost, let's say in Yemen, to have some guys on a
motorcycle fire a few shots at an embassy guard?
