III. Reality Asserts Itself - Thomas Drake (August 2015)


From 9/11 to Mass Surveillance, The Man Who Knew Too Much - Thomas Drake on RAI 

On Reality Asserts Itself, Mr. Drake, a former Senior Executive at the National Security Agency, says he was targeted by the NSA because he exposed that the agency had intel that could have prevented the 9/11 attacks and because he blew the whistle on a massive secret surveillance program aimed at Americans. (on YouTube: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5)


  1. (1/5) Says he was targeted by the NSA because he exposed that the agency had intel that could have prevented the 9/11 attacks and because he blew the whistle on a massive secret surveillance program aimed at Americans.
  2. (2/5) Discusses the "dark state" and how 9/11 opens up disturbing questions about power, who we are, who's in charge and the secret subversion of the U.S. constitution.
  3. (3/5) Says the suspension of the Constitution that took place in secret after 9/11, for all intents and purposes, developed with executive orders, regulations, statutes, and oftentimes in cooperation with the Congress - since 1947.
  4. (4/5) Tells Host Paul Jay that mass surveillance is not about protecting people, in the end it's about social control.
  5. (5/5) Says that in the name of national security we are eating out the very heart of democracy; what will be left will be a garrison state.


Zentrale Gesichtspunkte:Ę


Diese Aussagen werden anderswo hŠufig unbedacht -und daher nur als Hypothesen brauchbar- gemacht. Der hochrangige NSA-Mitarbeiter und langjŠhrige Beamte Thomas Drake ist dagegen meiner Ansicht nach ein verlŠsslicher Zeuge.


Dieses 5-teilige Interview erlaubt es uns, auch die deutsche Politik fundierter zu beurteilen.
