The report came shortly after Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega said he would grant Snowden asylum in his country "if the circumstances permit." Another country that has seemed supportive of Snowden's quest for a new home is Bolivia, whose president is now expressing anger at the United States over an incident involving the presidential plane and a rumor about Snowden.

Non of the wisdom nor the attempts for democratic reform and more open society we gained just after the collapse will stick under the reign of this new governing.

U.S. Postal Service Logging All Mail for Law Enforcement

July 5, 2013 by legitgov

U.S. Postal Service Logging All Mail for Law Enforcement 04 Jul 2013 As the world focuses on the high-tech spying of the National Security Agency, the misplaced card offers a rare glimpse inside the seemingly low-tech but prevalent snooping of the United States Postal Service. A longtime surveillance system is called mail covers, a forerunner of a vastly more expansive effort, the Mail Isolation Control and Tracking program, in which Postal Service computers photograph the exterior of every piece of paper mail that is processed in the United States -- about 160 billion pieces last year. It is not known how long the government saves the images. Together, the two programs show that postal mail is subject to the same kind of scrutiny that the National Security Agency has given to telephone calls and e-mail.

The document was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit and first posted Tuesday by the Electronic Frontier Foundation. According to the document, titled "Concept of Operations for CBP's Predator B Unmanned Aircraft System," the weapons would be used against "targets of interest," described as people or vehicles carrying smugglers or undocumented migrants [or 'others'].

BET Awards: Jamie Foxx makes statement with Trayvon Martin T-shirt 01 Jul 2013 Actor Jamie Foxx made a silent but powerful fashion statement at Sunday's BET Awards, where he opted out of the usual red-carpet finery in favor of a T-shirt bearing the image of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed Florida teen whose shooting death last year sparked intense national debate over gun control and racial profiling. Foxx won the evening's prize for lead actor for his role as a vengeance-seeking freed slave in "Django Unchained." On stage to accept the award, he opted not to mention the controversy by name, allowing the shirt -- which featured a stylized black-and-white version of the now-iconic close-up of Martin in a hoodie, and was paired with bright white jeans and shoes -- to do the talking for him.

Clapper: I gave 'erroneous' answer because I forgot about Patriot Act --Intelligence [sic] chief tries to explain false Senate testimony by saying he 'simply didn't think' of NSA efforts to collect phone data --'I simply didn't think of Section 215 of the Patriot Act.' 02 Jul 2013 The most senior US intelligence official told a Senate oversight panel that he "simply didn't think" of the National Security Agency's efforts to collect the phone records of millions of Americans when he testified in March that it did "not wittingly" snoop on their communications. James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, made the comments in a letter to the Senate intelligence committee, released in full for the first time on Tuesday. Portions of the letter, in which Clapper apologised for giving "clearly erroneous" testimony at a March hearing of the committee, were first reported by the Washington Post on Monday. Clapper had previously said that his answer to the committee was the "least untruthful" one he could publicly provide. In the full letter, Clapper attempted to explain the false testimony by saying that his recollection failed him.

Bolivia complains to UN after Evo Morales's plane 'kidnapped' --US refuses to comment on Morales plane but admits contact with other nations over potential Snowden flights 03 Jul 2013 Bolivia filed a complaint at the United Nations on Wednesday over what it called the kidnapping of its president, Evo Morales, whose plane was diverted to Vienna amid suspicions that it was carrying the surveillance whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The US admitted that it had been in contact with other nations over potential flights by Snowden. "We will demand appropriate explanations from those countries that submitted to North American imperialism and briefly put President Morales in such a helpless situation," Llorenti told the state radio Patria Nueva. Bolivia's vice-president, Alvaro García Linera, said Morales was "kidnapped by imperialism".
