Snowden an attempt to frighten potential future whistleblowers

‘The World Will Be Shocked’: Greenwald on Upcoming NSA Exposé

Obama administration’s objective with Snowden is “to intimidate future whistleblowers from coming forward”

– Andrea Germanos, staff writer
“The world will be shocked” by the next story on the National Security Agency’s vast spying operations, said Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist leading the exposure—made possible by leaks from whistleblower Edward Snowden—of the agency’s far-reaching surveillance.
Speaking Tuesday morning with conservative host Eric Bolling on Fox News’ Fox & Friends, Greenwald hinted that a new NSA story was forthcoming and potentially explosive. 
When asked if he was ready to unveil a new NSA scoop, Greenwald responded:

I will say that there are vast programs of both domestic and international spying that the world will be shocked to learn about that the NSA is engaged in with no democratic accountability, and that’s what’s driving our reporting.

Greenwald also gave a preview of this next exposé over the weekend during a speech given to the Socialism 2013 conference, saying it would report on “a brand new technology [that] enables the National Security Agency to redirect into its own repositories one billion cell phones calls every single day.”
The example the Obama administration is setting with Snowden, Greenwald explained to Bolling, is to give a warning to future whistleblowers that the repercussions will be swift and harsh.

    What I find so odd about this affair is that Snowden’s revelations have all been published before in official documents and broadcast by the alternative media.Why are they now telling the proles?

    internet is the main vehicle where people will learn what is really going on. The search engines will report an increase in the number of visits to sites such as this one and others. It is possible that this is designed to frighten those previously ignorant or curious of this material…a kind of “hey we know who you are and what you’re looking at”. Answer- Encourage anybody and everybody to access these sites and make the elites panic even more. The more desperate they become the more outrageous and obvious their behaviour will become and will serve to wake even more people up.
