9:06 am
obedience to a. putting aside your obligations to your people to your country for the benefit of your government because the officer he creates is not. pushy it's of evils very concretely. streaming after a talking patient how the us is our own records shows that it was involved in one way or another in the deaths of more than one hundred twenty thousand people in iraq and afghanistan between two thousand and four and two thousand and ten. and the u.s. government's response is maybe hypothetically as a result of this release of this material some afghan family or u.s. soldier. could face risks. we will likely. face is the cost in human lives on tomorrow's battlefield or in in some in some some place where we will put our military forces the end result as
9:07 am
a last year of the earth but a single person had been as a result of. if you were going to write for a moment you lost a whole lot of time and that's why this matters is because it happened and we didn't know that we were told. for some people their superheroes for others simply traitors whistleblowers like daniel ellsberg thomas drake william binney and edward snowden. hackers and activists like the wiki leaks founder julian assange and the former british secret service agent an emotional they warn us about the complete surveillance of our society they oppose intelligence agencies governments and corporations and for this they are threatened hounded and imprisoned. why are they so committed what drives them.
9:08 am
the intelligence services enough the only ones monitoring communications and processing massive data. also private corporations like google amazon facebook and apple collect millions of pieces of information about us to analyze and monetize. that simply is a self for a smartphone sacked that i am a person mentioned dr cynthia was stuff this iran's once there when it's just there are nine v.h.f. and the slick not to sit there for stuff to thank us it does all school well i to
9:09 am
be honest. we don't really know what exactly happens with their own digital trails our data is transferred invisibly to hugh. data centers. sublimating into a complex new identity creating our digital self. to get on events linked to smith think that's the sky in a human at the end of it doesn't make it an ending of then thought into this you see if you do that stuff one may have the bus start finot. before you know it's off the zealous father won't do it slant one for the unfinished ima feed so much money that is through an s.t.d. it is against us but it's an awful and he shot and says he and everyone gets smarter because of this technology because it's free or very inexpensive and the
9:10 am
empowerment of people is the secret to technological progress. we are all participating in this enormous transition where billions of people are joining our party or joining our fun in joining our anxiety. you're missing the end of who to michelle what i need to balance fun indeed i don't doubt that shuts me modify had always started noir put looked at some of them given the new developments in a machine intelligence will make us far far smarter as a result and this means everyone on the planet genetics revolution has a huge and positive impact on the way we treat disease progression disease and so and so on it's all basically because these smartphones are really super computers. and so on and it gunson being a friend as well you just telephone not just me or does this is
9:11 am
a gotten him going to them and be nice to him and i'm from no one's a smartphone into who was in touch i haven't it's all i can get out and then it would g.p.s. nice man in love will b.s. and has asked me how my dance into was in touch in the middle ones. with the advent of the smartphone we have become even more visible. so i don't do those glitches but. then it's not just i phones that i lost my phone i mean most small phones are these days smart phones capture our communication behavior along when where and with whom we talk. apps collect data about our user behavior even our health data in addition many people use digital data storage like
9:12 am
clouds carelessly handing over their information all of our community. are being intercepted analyzed and stored automatically and that means that all of our years or russians are associated and who we talk to who me who we hate. as the old internet saying goes if it's for free and you are the product because the use of all those convenient digital online services are only seemingly for free because we pay with our data. we have neither inside nor overview about our digital self and absolutely no possibility to actively control it. then it's a bit stale online doesn't see have a command been. offended about its full name is best dismissed so then
9:13 am
you've got to spit sublist and you know it's an industry seeking v.h.f. making b.s. on cannot decide which of the he'll be at is that supposed capitalize on fit by internet gun. this will be a miss this is a few get to see some protests monday also going on to date up brokerage charmless highest consequently it's best to stand on handfield see under a few mit rush but sizable beacon says heist and allow him to quit says a hint accordions browser smit the hidden tustin talked in z m lauzon for it was often alpha some cow off. went that's. so it's better than alice vietnam s much fashion so owned by speed size of yet alpha titan if you off to them i was fearing for unlike you didn't think the last task have been watson and you have
9:14 am
fifty rushed us to been would still come under hostile explicit seemed a. bit since the smashed and i go it's most unprofessional so far going on via even decent looks persecutes will get now too much of the kind committed to point out. the data we create assembling our digital self is also of interest as a juicy source of information for the intelligence community. so quickly it is now being put placed on us. networks infrastructure like trying to get a structure. tapping straight in enabled by critical partnerships before senate which have still not been revealed to this day not even the snow disclosures eighteen t. for aizen and a number of others but that's where it started with the phone companies ok it was
9:15 am
it was rapidly expanded to include e-mails at all related information internet usage and all related for mission and financial transactions. the revelations by edward snowden provide detailed insight into the relationship between intelligence services and private companies. telephone metadata and web browsing histories are of great interest to the intelligence community. see that's really industrial relations. they were tapping the fiber lines between the google servers. they didn't even know this is going on google the dot ok so i mean that's the point they can tap lines anywhere in the world and when they do that they can get it between the servers of any but any company. from my perspective i think it's in massive collusion between the big corporations and big
9:16 am
government you know with the big spy agencies the military security complex they have agreements between them where they will pay money for data if they produce data for n.s.a. or they will also pay for access and like for example the the room in the eighteenth the facility in san francisco that has the n.s.a. . it's the n.s.a. room that has the tappan on an hourly fee data and it's really eighteen t. that has them maintain that room facebook is evil in my view have been saying as he is it's the spies what dream it does we'll for up all information and it's just there on a plate for the spies to access and we know they do you through back doors and things and yet that's a defamation has taken weeks or months together we're going into vigil they extend what google of information a google has is nothing near what n.s.a. does for example they do not have they have access to the e-mails if if they're using g. mail for example but not all the other service providers and they don't so they
9:17 am
don't have that data to do a composite view of what people are doing nor do they have access to all the fiber optic lines around the world nor do they see the banking transactions or the financial transactions or all the phone calls they don't see that sort of vast amount of information that google does not have. so that's something that is leading to increasing concentrations of power and you get some spot people things for companies and then these contracts to the national security sector as contractors. so the creative viber. see. market capitalism is what i'm
9:18 am
concerned about. many of the companies concerned reacted immediately to the snowden revelations they proclaim and advertise seemingly tap proof mobile phones and texting services followed by public announcements pleading that they will no longer put up with the pressure of the intelligence services. the way in which technology companies have reacted in the wake of this though to. leaks means that the level of cooperation between technology companies and and intelligence agencies has gone down and that's that's that's added to the threat in some ways. it would be slightly bizarre if all the advances in technology in the use of bulk
9:19 am
data analysis which are improving. the performance of business improving the health care. delivery and so on somehow national security was allowed to do so. it's not as if the more secure you get the less privacy you have all the more privacy you have the less security you have these you know in a free society like we join the west. your freedoms are guaranteed by security and so the job of western governments is to find the optimal levels of privacy and security supposed to maximize. as a consequence of the september eleventh attacks the technical capabilities of the intelligence services were massively expanded international collaboration of national spy organizations was also intensified. not always without friction and problems they have similar range like combating international terrorism they get
9:20 am
they listen in on one another. after when nine eleven hit there was this perspective that germany had had screwed up that the security services crude up that they had harbored terrorists. you have the cells and homburg. you have a number of the hijackers. transited through live there play in there. it was a significant cell there's no question about that and there's a whole history behind it and i think i think as i said i said this even publicly said this in terms of the testimony for the bundestag the germany within europe was declared. a target number one and i believe i believe. significant pressure but clearly out of the secret
9:21 am
partnership and cooperation to be indian others was expanded and we know that now there's again more evidence has come out there was a special agreement this secret and expanded sheria remit basically gave the united states car blogs but also it was there was a b. and b. . now we're going to cooperate are going to help facilitate. the spring two thousand and fifteen a scandal erupts in germany regarding the close and secret collaboration between the german intelligence service be n.d. and the n.s.a. . the b. and d. cooperated with the n.s.a. to spy on european politicians and assisted the united states in attempts of industrial espionage. when the press reported that the chancellor rhee had known about the scandal since two thousand and eight it peaked with the german opposition
9:22 am
threatening to sue its own government over the b endianness a fair. as it does the victorian. now it's become this new. zine. in and as of course an opinion which dean and in and. from the indies and in these activities. give is a must and i need to get opposite your wooden. beason bear devoted to movie of a city a movie conjures item of protect invasion from fun toy chip. and forking and a foothold. since two thousand and fourteen in
9:23 am
an inquiry into the snowden revelations meets in the bundestag for the first time i whistle blower from the usa reports to the parliamentary committee about the n.s.a. and its into relations with the german d.n.d. . lean body confirm the very close relationship between the be indian the n.s.a. to the commission. a relationship that already existed during his time in the us intelligence service.
9:24 am
as infinity by the vanity endace. of the shoot to kill film saga was and it was office it was clear in those fancy media again this in the if even thought basis of what he hopes on deny him took this via. get all the alpha and dis instruments the parliament had and control it and offer it contains to any clue to move into an alpha meter better than awfully thin things to fit in follow the sea. gull fossils into sid so it's going to get involved in bad in the sea here stuff taught in any moth eaten things that ignorant the meat and if we can't get out and sit on the stuff it's moved into parliament house he controlled himself and from what i can see they had the same problem getting information from the b. and d. that the congress has from getting of getting information from the n.s.a. . it is the either won't tell them or they lie to them. one of the other i mean that's what's been going on in the in the u.s.
9:25 am
government the point is that now in our in our case we've been this snowden material is made obvious that they've been lying to the government that's what intelligence agencies are they are they are tossed to do things in secret that are unlawful or politically embarrassing you see intelligence agencies aren't aren't controllable unless they're really heavily monitored and there's a verification an unquestionable verification process they don't have that now that's the problem in our country too we do not have a an undue unequivocal verification process that the agencies can't look can't can't corrupt. that we conclude this is team in the moon so they know all these things that this bill does the parliament audition can go into leading this kicked out so and i can this commune the signal to parliament that if you can totally me i'm going into some talk when these talks are going to ongoing when i mean all governments seem to be in a position of having to trust their intelligence agencies telling them the truth.
9:26 am
that it's questionable nothing will happen in terms of any self-regulation. as organizations are too secretive to complex to walk back to his house that regular. the german chancellor in the bundestag parliamentary control committee are officially responsible for the control of the b. and d. . only with a more comprehensive and effective control of the intelligence agencies can civil rights and privacy be properly protected. what other options are there to prevent abuse or possible illegal activities by the spies. often only intelligence insiders are left to go public reveal institutional
9:27 am
violations and become whistleblowers get there's disparity between these individuals on the one side and the governments and intelligence services on the other and so the whistleblowers and activists soon find out what happens when they challenge these organizations. as a would consent and they view scott and be a given the if to go ohm's or me as us and good luck to get. this being bandied react to your own admission of being you were team whistleblower snowden as if to his son and your king you but i then shot and. and the and. they are too old to be every good business militants and suits are. tight that's what kind basically just out. to to get told by a club about us trust them it must see vincent you want to give me isn't very good . after his revelations in two thousand and thirteen edward snowden tried to flee
9:28 am
from hong kong to south america via moscow but the u.s. revoked his passport he couldn't continue his journey from moscow and had to apply for asylum in russia. stowed had been criticized about ending up in russia headed up in russia because the state department cancel his passport so he couldn't fly over i mean they are incredible our goal why would they do that. that allows them to make the argument that he's working for russia and they can apply the nine hundred seventeen act why would they want to apply the nine hundred seventy because the nine hundred seventeen act carries with it the death penalty and they want to get in the death penalty the n.s.a. commission in the bundestag actually wanted to call snowden as a witness many voices in the german public support the idea to grant edward snowden asylum in germany.
9:29 am
there are two very seven million lives in this world each one a story that the monster the jewel of. witness documentaries to open your eyes on al-jazeera. made on al-jazeera. mocking world press freedom day al-jazeera shines a light on this important issue and examines the state of freedom of the press around the world people in power asked the top u.s. general in afghanistan about his plans for defeating by the taliban and an isis insurgency. struggling with security issues and economic uncertainty iraq is finally set to hold elections as an unseen global battle rages for resources
9:30 am
beneath our oceans we all skip the seabed is a territory still to be claimed commemorating seventy years from now but al-jazeera examines what has changed in the past seven decades on both sides of this conflict may be on al-jazeera. if you are in beijing looking out the pacific ocean you'd see american warships when mess was that somehow time as aiming to replace america and go around the world for the chinese are not that stupid things guys want to dominate a huge chunk of the planet this sounds like a preparation for our first president george washington said if you want peace prepare for war the coming war on china to josie.

9:39 am
the same prosecutor and stalking me and i and dropped and she said that there was no crime at all. that had been committed. so later on it came out in the supreme court here that both women are concerned i had not followed the complaint and that one of them had said that the police had made this up after a brief game of hide and seek the son transit himself into the london police in december two thousand and ten and was remanded in custody released on bail with electronic ankle monitor a son fought in court against his extradition to sweden on a number of occasions. the walls were closing in both from the from the us side he was clearly ready and from the. swedish side and from the u.k. . at the time. in june two thousand and twelve i had
9:40 am
a lot of. surveillance and also casey had who has a lady came out was spying on us and the national security agency only goes so. there was a risk plane coming to the embassy to apply for asylum that that action would be seen and that i would be interdicted. but i was extremely well disguised well i didn't look anything like i normally look. is it true that anyone or heard something a week and still screw. this through the start in the shoe is correct yes. the clothing everything was different and the reason you put this turn in your sure is to change your game because they're gay can be quite recognizable and that's not an issue if someone's to seeing you in the newspaper and that it is an issue for
9:41 am
a surveillance team. since june two thousand and twelve the sun has been stranded at the ecuadorian embassy in london. at that time i said well i'll be happy to go to sweden provided there's a guarnteed of the exhibition to united states because the london independent had already revealed that the us and sweden were in informal talks about expediting me from sweden and be rendered. we call that rendering. you know that's what the one of the dark side activities that we've been doing. taking people up the street anywhere in the world and sending them to different places for torture or imprisonment.
9:42 am
is keep using i don't even fought of a kind i leapt in five eight zero. up the side to hear these and snowden. and julian without bitterness on julian guns guns thought fish. a month from god to biggest of them for vicki dixon julian was a. lunch to fill some of us that spot on and on for because it's been this wasn't long before this critter remote a preview of this thing guns inside the glided. by tarzan scene and the time you and i will spend together for the killings on the mob. doesn't to some kind of sponsors thousand mimeo you know once the stories over the journalists skip often break the stories they've made their careers and their suppliers that time try having broken and created with no hope of proper employment again. you know having
9:43 am
left behind your whole way of life your social circle everything and in the case of intelligence for supply of course you face automatic prosecution and conviction to so it's very high price to pay. well i mean a real threat came when the f.b.i. came into my house and when i was getting out of the shower and pointed a pistol at me. it i was getting out of the shower getting dragged dried off and they came in pip pointing a pistol at me and also my family so it was a threat and it was hard to threaten people and then after that the department of justice attempted to fabricate evidence and and indict us i was very publicly indicted with a ten felony is a ten felony count indictment under the espionage act facing thirty five years in prison that was that was the final price you government or the inside the intelligence community there
9:44 am
trumpeting these things they're holding these guys up it as examples to say look if you say what's going on you step on the line even if this even if you do it for the right reasons even if you do it at the right all there will be a record caution you know they talk about internal channels and what might that these guys used in terms of analysts and they say people like thomas drake they ended up getting indicted and this is something that i paid very close attention to and i learned a great deal from it was very rare in american history to get charged with espionage for nods of eighty's in fact i was actually the only the second whistleblower charged a white man or the first was dana wellsburg when he went to the baltimore sun he did not reveal classified tricks you know they charged with classified but that was a hoax say there was a fraud they reclassified material that they found in his computer which was not conscious right and he had every reason to believe that he would not be prosecuted
9:45 am
for what he gave to baltimore sun he would lose his john. he would lose his clearance right gives his very serious serious challenge depended on terror and in fact most the judge he should hear now with reporters after. he was taking a very serious risk but i don't if you risk if he thought he would be prosecuted i don't i was blacklisted i was president of god i was radioactive no government agency would take me nor nor any contractor with the government it was off limits and n.s.a. made it crystal clear even though there were attempts by even prior to my indictment to find work it all they would all come to naught so i ended up as a wage rate employee. one of the retail stores in the greater d.c. area where i still work but unable to find any other work at all of any kind that was the price you have no job you have no
9:46 am
career you have no you have no pension all those years i served in the government i'm now a traitor and an enemy of the state. the price thomas drake another whistle blowers pay for warning against the danger of a surveillance state is high loss of friends and family. flight into exile or long prison sentences under more stringent conditions. professional isolation and personal financial collapse.
9:47 am
it's over this is so we here is so mirrors the. dirigible dish everything is organized everything is. just. how far we've got on our efficiency. or race the sovereignty of individuals. and seen how far an institution will go to raise freedom. for
9:48 am
a person's life. and the only way they can do that is to control them every single second of the day and measure it at the same time. i chose to vote myself inside system. never imagining what i did. that i'd be charged with espionage. for having defended the constitution protecting the constitution became a state crime. kak. a state crime. and we have the power. you don't. in the end all they had left to do was assassinate me. at the character that's all they had left.
9:49 am
assassinate. which is the only in the form. of control right. it doesn't matter what even the crimes against the state were. your unexceptable. you're not fit. to work in the government or some obvious citizen. yet you do not deserve prison. because you're the wrong guy. where we have that in history. that goes. you just described how the f.b.i.
9:50 am
