Ed Snowden is not the only one. There are multiple people like him working in various intelligence agencies all over the world. The thing is that the intelligence community had became drunk with power and as such, corrupt.
At first, this was just bunch of random operatives doing stuff like sending docs to wikileaks, but as spies tend to do, they've created network. Data is mostly transmitted over modulated radio frequencies that aren't wifi and can travel pretty damn far (no connection with so-called number stations).
There's in fact a pretty huge leak incoming, regarding some space stuff and also more survelliance tools. Most intelligence agencies that matter have been infiltrated by the network, American, Russian, British, German, you name it. And even if an operative is caught, they can't reveal any valuable info as most of network operatives don't even know who others are, for their own protection. While those who know, are at or near the top of their respective agency so they are well-protected and can arrange escape in case operative of the network is caught.
Re: Re: Re: Unfortunately, it is the taxpayers who will pay the price
We're not doing enough to hold individuals and groups to account. Until an informed citizenry takes responsibility for holding the powers that be to account via the usual channels, that's not going to happen.
The SOPA campaign proves it can be done; there's a way, folks, but is there the will?
By now we should have come to expect bullshit from anyone that works with anything that uses the word cyber. She isn't in the business of providing security to whatever system, she is in the business of saying what the Govt wants and pretending to do something to get easy tax payers money. That said, we still need to debunk their bullshit because there are still people that believe it.
that multiple operatives screwed up in small ways, compounding each other's mistake
This is how most problems occur. Rarely do they happen for any single given cause but a compounding of errors. Sadly, for all the risk they put tech companies in, and our own government, they haven't prevented a single attack. Not 1. So we should be asking if all the risk is worth it?
I am from the Philippines, I am widow for 8 years now.. I have four children to take care of..I am sorry for asking assistance for I am really financially hard up this time.. I have a very low net take home pay. It could not even suffice our daily needs.. In fact, I was not able to pay our house rentals for 4 months now.. I'm afraid to loose the house where we are renting now.. i do not know where to go and what to do.. Day and night I am praying and crying... on how to settle these things.. I am praying to God that someday we will have a home of our own where my children live happily even in just a simple way of living whereby God is the center of our life... May God continue to shower you with avalanche of blessings.. good health, long life, protection, good relationship with harmonious family..Thank you. God bless and more power.

Actually, Uriel, you may find that quite a large proportion of the vassals are fine and dandy with the status quo because authoritarianism is awesome, or something. We live in a Fascist society and Fascism requires that the people are on board with the regime. And the people are on board till they fall foul of the regime.
That person acknowledged the error shortly afterward, they said. But the NSA did not inform the companies of the danger when it first discovered the exposure of the tools, the sources said.
And yet somehow it's the fault of the tech industry that the relationship between it and the government isn't as cozy as the government would like it to be. That the tech companies are to blame for not trusting the government and granting their every request, requests which would of course serve only to benefit them, the government, and especially the public, and could never have any unfortunate downsides or ulterior motives.
No, I'll go with personal experience, unless you have some research to point to (strange how you always make bare faced claims but never back yourself up with a single citation, isn't it?)
Generally speaking, if someone's determined to drive, they will unless stopped. If, however, they are not committed to driving (or have successfully been talked out of driving to some degree), then cost and time waiting will both be factors. If Uber is quicker, more convenient and cheaper than a taxi, that will reduce drink driving.
Now, I'll admit there may be some cultural difference in how I've experienced such situations, but I've seen bar staff talk people out of drink driving on many numerous occasions and get them to take a cab. The times it fails tends to be when they have to wait too long or the phone line is busy. That's where Uber can obviously make some difference.
"The availability or lack of for Uber isn't going to make that big a change."
But, you admit that it will make a change?
"I deal with reality... something you seem disconnected to in your expat tax haven."
Sadly, no you don't. There's at least 3 or 4 massive flaws in your fantasy versions of both me and the places I live and work, which you still fail to realise. Perhaps instead of using your warped imagination to construct a strawman army, you could research? I'll be happy to tell you exactly where you're full of shit if you need a clue.

"Had you researched even a small bit, you would know his name (tino) his age (30s)"
I did research, but at the time there was no information I could find about the son's details, all the news articles referred to the mother's age. At a guess, that information came out later, although given your lack of citation and lack of admitting that my assumption of his age range was correct and yours was wrong, I take your claim with a pinch of salt.
"The car is the thing incurring the costs. You don't give back the asset until the costs are paid."
Well, i hope you don't work for government because your way is the most inefficient, most expensive way to do things. Although this does seem to be par for the course with US governance.
The car is only accruing costs because it's impounded. It's impounded for things that the owner did not do. My option is to return the car to the rightful owner and charge the guilty party with the outstanding costs. Do you not have multiple ways to retrieve outstanding civil debts in the US? I'm sure you do.
Your solution might have the option of selling the car later on to cover costs, but it also guarantees that the costs are vastly higher as well as levying those costs on someone who did not commit the crime in question.
"Your failure to understand the law would be appalling if I did't know your history better."
The history where you know I'm not in the US nor American, so might need some basic legal differences explained? Or the one where I regularly talk with an ignorant troll who waves his arms or disappears whenever challenged for an explanation, citation or adult discussion?
"Sorry, but without you having a basic understanding, it's a pretty hard discussion to have."
In other words: "I'm right, you're wrong, I won't cite anything or even explain what's wrong but I win!" You're pathetic.
"I stand where the law stands"
But you won't explain why I'm wrong, explain why you think you're right, will provide zero citations or address the fact that the very basis of this discussion is where the law might be wrong in how it operated.
