Greenwald Hypes ‘Spectacular Multicolored Fireworks’ for a Finale, Will Reveal Names of NSA ‘Victims’

Also compares GCHQ to a “super-vicious yapping Shih Tzu”

A piece from the Sunday Times by Toby Harnden says The Mighty Glenn Greenwald has revealed his plan to stun the world into submission, once and for all, in an interview at a “boutique hotel” near Harvard: Greenwald’s Finale: Naming Victims of Surveillance.

Greenwald is going to reveal the names of people whose communications have been intercepted by the NSA, and this will prove for all time how monstrous and evil the pernicious Obama regime truly is, not to mention their subservient, drooling media courtiers. OK, I’m paraphrasing that part. But not by much.

Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who received the trove of documents from Edward Snowden, a former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor, told The Sunday Times that Snowden’s legacy would be “shaped in large part” by this “finishing piece” still to come.

His plan to publish names will further unnerve an American intelligence establishment already reeling from 11 months of revelations about US government surveillance activities.

Greenwald, who is promoting his book No Place To Hide and is trailed by a documentary crew wherever he goes, was speaking in a boutique hotel near Harvard, where he was to appear with Noam Chomsky, the octogenarian leftist academic.

“One of the big questions when it comes to domestic spying is, ‘Who have been the NSA’s specific targets?’,” he said. “Are they political critics and dissidents and activists? Are they genuinely people we’d regard as terrorists?

What are the metrics and calculations that go into choosing those targets and what is done with the surveillance that is conducted? Those are the kinds of questions that I want to still answer.”

[…]

“As with a fireworks show, you want to save your best for last,” Greenwald told GQ magazine. “The last one is the one where the sky is all covered in spectacular multicoloured hues.”

Greenwald also took aim at another of his favorite targets — the British GCHQ intelligence service, comparing the relationship between the NSA and GCHQ to a “built-up muscular guy” with a tiny, “super-vicious and yapping” Shih Tzu dog. Very picturesque!

“The British are more unrestrained and vicious in their surveillance mindset than even the US.” he said. “When you go to the park in New York, you see these built-up muscular guys and they have these tiny Shih Tzu dogs.

“It will seem like a mismatch but the Shih Tzu is super-vicious and yapping. That’s how I see the relationship between the GCHQ and the NSA.”
