NSA Blackmailing Obama?

On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin talks to Russell Tice, former intelligence analyst and original NSA whistleblower, about how the recent NSA scandal is only scratches the surface of a massive surveillance apparatus, citing specific targets the he saw spying orders for including former senators Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama.

    It’s probably like Bill Hicks said, they take every new president into a back room and show them footage of the JFK assassination that no one’s ever seen before.

      Any questions?…

      Yes, what is my agenda?

    • HCE

      Interesting in light of strong evidence of an unaltered Zapruder film coming to light in the last few years.

    • Rhoid Rager

      Tice is upping the ante now that Snowden has come out with the paper evidence to ‘codify’ the allegations Tice made a few years back. Allegations that Obama and other top officials were eavesdropped on seems a hell of a lot more credible now that Snowden is on the run. I liked how he fished Abby into using the word ‘blackmail’, then played all coy like. He’s a clever guy…s’pose you gotta be to work with satellites and shit like that.

      But, then again, not to get conspiratorial or anything, but this could be part of a larger conspiracy by the banks to start an internal war in the government, to divert attention from the Bernanke’s systematic destruction of the Benny Buck and the international fall-out of the dollar slowly losing it’s world reserve currency status. Who the fuck knows what’s going on?! I get tied in knots thinking about this silly shit everyday. I’m gonna have a beer and get back to work!

        Upon second listen, Abby seems to be really hood-winked by this sly dog. ‘The plugging in of these phone numbers, was being done in the evening….even so most NSA employees did not know what was going on’. Fed her exactly what she wanted. She looks up at him with her wide-eyed faux incredulity–‘these are explosive allegations’ (almost with the hackneyed quip–‘you heard it here on RT, folks!’). Naaaw. This guy is leading her and the rest of the noisy, sound-challenged set. Betcha a Benny Buck the ‘upper echelon’ of the intelligence community is gonna get an open grilling in the next few months…especially considering Bernanke is probably due to ramp up printing in September.

    1:52 ‘They were tarjeting….targeting…’
    I’d say he’s a plant by the French government.
    It’s not Russel Tice…It’s Roosel Teece.

    • AManCalledDa-da

      Maybe he just can’t read his lines very well on the teleprompter.

    7:43 ‘This isn’t just Rikard…Richard Nixon’
    Another one to reinforce my French Connection hypothesis. Corrects himself after pronouncing the name ‘Richard’ in an anglo way.

    You’ll fin that while elements of the NSA are doing the intelligence gathering, it’s the CIA and it’s major contractors who are doing the extortion. The CIA has plenty of ‘off balance sheet elements”.

  • InfvoCuernos

    WHAT?!?!? You mean the intelligence community is blackmailing the politicians? Ya, since Hoover.

  • JCDavis

    Of course Cheney is behind this! You don’t build the most powerful spy/blackmail machine since Hoover and then turn it over to the next president–a man you hate–when you could turn him into a puppet just as you turned the last president into a puppet. With a guy like Bush whose mind was addled by booze and cocaine, it was easy, and it was even easier with Obama, who came from nowhere and had never been properly vetted.
