One of the most popular current event is EDWARD SNOWDEN! The former technical contractor worked for the National Security Agency (NSA) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), but since he’s leaked top-secret information to the press, Snowden has been somewhat on the run. There are new leaks that suggests, America using ‘bugs’ to spy on some of its closet allies. Of course, even our “friends” are not excused from the asinine tactics of the U.S. government. Hit the jump for more details.
Some of the allies that’s been bugged includes, European Union, France, Italy, South Korea and Japan. In the recent leaked document, it states that the ‘United States bugged the EU Embassy in Washington to gather inside knowledge regarding policy disagreements on global issues,’ by using tools to implant in electronic communications equipment, taps into cables, and use of high-tech eavesdropping antennae. Meanwhile, Snowden is still stuck in Russia due to the government cacelling his passport.
I feel bad for the dude…he’s trapped! I just hope he doesn’t ‘slip n’ fall’ somewhere. You know how our government do. Give me your thoughts on this situation.
