Fascinating. Hard to believe. What is truth and can we ever know it? What happens when the Fourth Estate fails in its duty to the public good. For that matter, what happens when elected politicians similarly fail. Scary. ( )

This is a really good read, much like your emails and personal messages and those of your friends and elected officials which can be accessed by people working for the US government at any time without them even having to ask permission of anyone.

People keep saying to me "why should we care about what happens in the US?" Well there are plenty of US laws to protect US citizens somewhat, not us! ( )

A Journalist's Tale
Review of the Metropolitan Books hardcover edition (2014)
A pardon of Snowden & Assange seems improbable to many because -- even as Trump rails against the Deep State & feels victimized by exactly those exposed by these two -- he allows those who serve the Deep State (Pompeo, Grenell, John Kelly) to control him & he fears defying them. If Trump - after praising Assange's publications in 2016 & saying he was strongly considering pardoning Snowden for having exposed the spying abuses used against him - slinks out of the WH & allows Brennan, Clapper & Susan Rice to get their way, it will be a world-record cucking. - as tweeted by Glenn Greenwald, December 20, 2020
I read No Place to Hide as part of my reading survey of various books in relation to the 2020 American Election and the post-Election situation. Although it is not a direct tie-in, there was increased lobbying for Trump to pardon Snowden and Assange in his final days. This did not happen, as Greenwald predicted above. As a Canadian I’ve generally ignored American politics and elections in past years, but the drama of the situation in 2020/21 has heightened my interest.

No Place to Hide is a record of journalist Greenwald's experience in the lead-up, revelations, and aftermath of the Edward Snowden's disclosures of the extent of the NSA's/CIA's spying on American citizens and of the entire world. It starts with the dark comic story of how Snowden attempted to contact Greenwald several times prior to their actual meeting, when the journalist, casually almost missing the biggest story of his career, was too lazy to bother to install encryption on his computers in order to continue the discussion.

It then continues with the actual Snowden meetings in Hong Kong with filmmaker Laura Poitras & fellow journalist Ewen MacAskill. This also involves the tense standoffs with The Guardian newspaper as to whether they would actually follow through with printing Snowden's revelations. The middle section of the book is an extensive display of actual NSA/GCHQ etc. documents and powerpoint slides where the various agencies pat themselves on the back for the extent of their surveillance capabilities and the extent to which they can subvert all domestic and international legal privacy boundaries. This part does drag somewhat, but I can see its importance in displaying the extent of Snowden's document collection. It slowed my reading though until I decided to give up on using a magnifying glass to actually try to read all of the information on the slides and carried on with the text summaries only.

The book concludes with Greenwald's editorial on the importance of privacy and of an actual adversarial Fourth Estate of journalism in this current world climate which has quietly gone much beyond the dystopic predictions of Orwell's 1984 with the world population freely giving up much of their own privacy through the infections and attractions of BigTech and social media.

Trivia and Links
Glenn Greenwald's articles for The Guardian that disclosed Edward Snowden's whistleblowing are still available at that newspaper's website here. Look for the June 2013 articles.

Laura Poitras' film documentary of the Hong Kong meetings with Edward Snowden is called CitizenFour (2014). It won the Best Documentary Feature at the 87th Academy Awards aka The Oscars in February 2015.

Oliver Stone's fictionalized movie adaptation of the life of Edward Snowden, which includes scenes of the Hong Kong meetings, is called Snowden (2016). ( )

I read this when it first came out, then re-read. As a book, it's probably a 4-5. Greenwald himself has a lot of flaws but was undoubtedly (and somewhat accidentally, or at least despite his own efforts) at the center of one of the most important stories of modern times. There isn't very much new in this book vs. the huge amount of press coverage on the issue, and I definitely find the Snowden and Poitras takes more interesting than Greenwald's, but due to the overall importance of the issue, it's worth reading this book too.

The United States government has perfected a technological capability that enables us to monitor the messages that go through the air. . . That capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything -- telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn't matter.  There would be no place to hide.

- Senator Frank Church, Chair, Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, 1975

When marginalized youths commit minor infractions, we as a society turn a blind eye as they suffer insufferable consequences in the world's largest prison system, yet when the richest and most powerful telecommunications providers in the country knowingly commit tens of millions of felonies, Congress passes our nation's first law providing their elite friends with full retroactive immunity--civil and criminal--for crimes that would have merited the longest sentences [] in history.
I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions,and that the return of this information to the public marks my end. I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon, and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed for even an instant. If you seek to help, join the open source community and fight to keep the spirit of the press alive and the internet free. I have been to the darkest corners of the government, and what they fear is light.
Taken in its entirety, the Snowden archive led to an ultimately simple conclusion: the U.S. government had built a system that has as its goal the complete elimination of electronic privacy worldwide.
(Glenn Greenwald writes...)
Congressman Alan Grayson wrote to Attorney General Holder, noting that prominent political figures called for my arrest and that I had had to decline an invitation to testify before Congress about the NSA due to concerns about possible prosecution. He concluded the letter saying:

I regard this as regrettable because (1) the commission of journalism is not a crime; (2) on the contrary, it is protected explicitly under the First Amendment; (3) Mr. Greenwald's reports regarding these subjects have, in fact, informed me, other members of Congress, and the general public of serious, pervasive violations of law and constitutional rights committed by agents of the government.
...Snowden...has reminded everyone about the extraordinary ability of any human being to change the world. An ordinary person in all outward respects--raised by parents without particular wealth or power, lacking even a high school diploma, working as an obscure employee of a giant corporation--he has, through a single act of conscience, literally altered the course of history.
