Skip to comments.Snowden documents could be 'worst nightmare' for U.S. - journalist
Posted on 07/13/2013 12:08:26 PM PDT by Perdogg
Fugitive former U.S. spy contractor Edward Snowden controls dangerous information that could become the United States' "worst nightmare" if revealed, a journalist familiar with the data said in a newspaper interview.
Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian journalist who first published the documents Snowden leaked, said in a newspaper interview published on Saturday that the U.S. government should be careful in its pursuit of the former computer analyst.
"Snowden has enough information to cause harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had," Greenwald said in an interview in Rio de Janeiro with the Argentinian daily La Nacion.
"The U.S. government should be on its knees every day begging that nothing happen to Snowden, because if something does happen to him, all the information will be revealed and it could be its worst nightmare."

The aforementioned all did, and in some cases doing, their level best to destroy our economy, currency, and culture, for the purpose of ushering in the New World Order. Honorable mention goes to the msm, with whose enthusiastic cooperation proved invaluable.
Is anyone else wondering what “the worst nightmare” referred to here could be?
” Hard to believe Snowden couldve done more damage to this country than 0, Clinton, and both Bushes.”
Don’t forget McCain, aka “Traitor Mc.”
He’s shipping weapons to Al Qaeda terrorists in Syria.... with NO background checks!
Plus, they’re allowed to use more than 7 bullets.
Damage ? Like PRISM ? Illegal spying on every American. A gross violation of the 4th Amendment.
Snowden had better release the truth about the Beast System before the Beast System disappears him.
I believe that we haven’t had a real election in this country in decades, and I believe that both parties are in on that little secret.
What would happen if that got out? We like to say “We’re not a democracy, we’re a republic!”
What happens when people realize that we are neither of those things??
I'm not convinced that Snowden's information would harm our country or even that the Guardian is saying it would. Sadly, there is a huge gap between our country and Obama's government. I wouldn't in the least mind seeing some damage to Obama's government from the disclosure of his unconstitutional activities.
***** “”Snowden has enough information to cause harm to the U.S. government in a single minute than any other person has ever had,”” ****
BS... Market value just goes down, Snowden is an amateur he needed to take “Traitors 101 from Obama”
Zero is PO’d cause he had some serious bidders and now his Retirement is not going to be a lavish as planned.
hussein is a far worse nightmare.
Perhaps Snowden obtained some of the elusive eligibility documents the Obama regime and its enablers so want to keep suppressed.
...”I believe that we havent had a real election in this country in decades, and I believe that both parties are in on that little secret.

I really do not know what would transpire if something like that happened..I am hoping those responsible would be brought to justice.
I don’t believe this man is evil or terrorist Obama is the evil terrorist that is why they don’t want anything out about the liar communist..
I’ve been living in a nightmare since ‘08. Not much sympathy here for those causing it.
Anybody know if Glenn Greenwald drives a Mercedes?
Just release the taped conversations between 0 and Reggie Love pledging their love for one another and his admission that he’s not nor ever has been a U.S. citizen and that his birth certificate and social security number are fake.
I really don’t now what to think of this guy.
...”Perhaps Snowden obtained some of the elusive eligibility documents the Obama regime and its enablers so want to keep suppressed”...
From what I read, Americans see Snowden as a whistle blower and not a traitor. Therefore, anything more he has to reveal probably would be welcomed by the common folks who want to know just how vulnerable “we the people” have become.
He knows all the ingredients to the original recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken!!! He must be stopped!!!
Again, let me remind everyone that the media is COMPLICIT with Obama in this Snowden CRAP. If Dubya were in office, the press would be CHOCK FULL of stories and outrage about government intrusion on people’s privacy.
But Obama the Messiah has been given a FREE PASS to abuse the American people.
Maybe someone wasn’t buried at sea.
Excellent point! It’ll hurt Obama, not us.
Maybe compromising photos with Reggie? Sadly, I doubt it.
Lets take it one step forward :
If almost all elections are now being done via electronics rather than mechanical,
and knowing that mechanical leaves a written record, whereas electonic DOES NOT !,
and since we KNOW that PRIZM reads electonic communications, which CAN BE STORED ,
Perhaps the elections can be ALTERED,
in which case, He who controls 'PRIZM' actually controlls the ELECTION ! ,
WITH NO TRACKS !!
“Is anyone else wondering what the worst nightmare referred to here could be?
Zero met secretly with liberal journalists this week. Perhaps these stories are part of the help he sought.
So, this guy Greenwald is saying that he saw the documents? Doesn’t that mean that he also knows all of America’s worst secrets?
So he has the birth certificate, and proof of the domestic ############## program. No big deal.
I’m thinking he has papers proving that Dear Leader is not who he says he is. That would throw the US govt into a chaotic seizure. Wouldn’t that be interesting?
The damage won’t be to the country. It will be the paper trail to the White House and beyond. Not damage proof. Period.
Worst nightmare would be explicit exposure of collusion between the DNC, the Obama administration, and unelected offices like the IRS and Homeland Security to manipulate the 2012 election.

That’s what that retiree would need with a billion rounds for....
The worst nightmare has already happened. Half of the public put its head up its a$$ and voted democrat in 2008 and 2012.
More propaganda by Odumbo. Snowden is bad Obama is good. obama is trying to quell something that will ruin Obama.
Greenwald is sounding more and more like your basic wannabe drama queen. Serious case of the “look-at-me” syndrome. Pretty soon he’s gonna have to put something in front of his mouth. Snowden hasn’t said anything I didn’t already know and I expect I could give him a class on the public info stuff he’s left out. He’s still reminding me of Lee Harvey Oswald who thot he was a clever insider but wound up being a patsy. And if one wants to measure damage to the country top of the list goes to the Obamacare crowd.
S. American states to recall ambassadors from Europe over Bolivian plane incident
What an interesting year we are having.
The important question is what *part* of the US government would his information harm?
The US government has long engaged in vast amounts of unconstitutional and hostile behavior to just about everyone, both foreigners and US citizens. If this is the part of the government that is harmed, it is a good thing.
And there is so much of this bad behavior, you have to wonder is there any *legitimate* part of the US government he could possibly hurt?
That vast majority of *legitimate* things the US government does is above board, transparent, and not alarming at all to anyone. This could only be hurt if it was also doing something it shouldn’t be.
So the bottom line is to turn the government’s own logic back on itself: “You shouldn’t mind leaks, if you haven’t done anything wrong.”
That we are not alone?
Not the nation, not the people, but the U.S. government....and what is the U.S. government? Just a collection of politicians and bureaucrats feeding on the sweat of its taxpaying citizens.
So many targets , so little ammo !!
See post #4 , and especially #22, then ask your question again !!
I meant the DHS retiree. I feel like writing a letter to Putin: will you please let him release just a few things right now?
Curious that you mention tracks. Electronic communications leave tracks all over the place. But mechanical documents just have one finger print at a time. As chance would have it the Euro news this week has a story about the Russians placing large orders for mechanical typewriters. They say they are tired of their confidential info bouncing around the ether and are going back to hard copy documents for the important stuff. And I tend to believe that everyone in this country who has really really important stuff to get done doesn’t let it transmit to the web. Computer aided design/manufacturing/production does not have to be tied to the web. I have a machine room that proves that. My stuff is absolutely uncorruptible by an idiot in a Russian airport.
I agree. It may harm our government but not our country. I’m for anything that brings our government misdeeds to light and helps the people of this country get our country back.
Low-information voters getting a grip of the federal government's constitutionally limited powers is the government's worst nightmare.
Obama destroyed small biz, US security,
all hope, all justice, all Law, and honest Elections.
Obama destroyed every Amendment as he micturated
on the US Constitution with the full assent of Congress.
I have the feeling that Snowden showed the Russians that anything on a computer wasn't safe !
Especially since Micro$oft has given encryption keys to 'PRIZM'
That's why they are now doing more on typewriters.
We should all take a lesson !
The Only way Snowden could do MORE damage than Obama was if he released documents saying that the USA has covered up aliens, and even that wouldn’t be worse than the damage Obummer has done...
If you have your own uninterrruptable power system (generator), with pure 'sine wave'for 60 Hz , I might agree with you !
However , most people are dependant on public utilities, which permit possible communications (ie: Smart meters).
My own opinion is that Snowden has much more information to spill , and chances are it will be shocking to the American citizenry,
and I look forward to it's release.
I am not sure what is secure , and what is not !
