The Untold Story In the NSA Spying Scandal: Blackmail


It is well-documented that governments use information to blackmail and control people.

The Express reported last month:

British security services infiltrated and funded the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange in a covert operation to identify and possibly blackmail establishment figures, a Home Office whistleblower alleges.

***

Whistleblower Mr X, whose identity we have agreed to protect, became a very senior figure in local government before retiring a few years ago.

***

He has given a formal statement to that effect to detectives from Operation Fernbridge ….

***

“And he said [the pedophile group] was being funded at the request of Special Branch which found it politically useful to identify people who were paedophiles….”


Section 11 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1885 made gross indecency a crime in the United Kingdom, which included male gay sex. The Amendment was so frequently used to blackmail gay Brits that it was dubbed the “Blackmailer’s Charter“.

There is widespread speculation that Pope Benedict resigned because of sexual blackmail.

And the American government has a long history of blackmailing people – including high-level officials- with knowledge of their sexual peccadilloes.

.....(snip).....

FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds alleged under oath that a recently-serving Democratic Congresswoman was secretly videotaped – for blackmail purposes – during a lesbian affair. There have been allegations of blackmail of gay activities within the U.S. armed forces for years.

And even the raw data on American citizens collected by the NSA is shared with Israel. This likely includes Congress members and other politicians, as well. .................(more)

1. A lot of us have alluded to this as the real reason so much data is being collected on

innocent americans. But without any hard evidence are scoffed at by the authoritarians.

OF COURSE this is about collecting blackmail material. The ultimate power will finally be had once every politician and CEO's personal dossier contains a complete record of their extramarital affairs, gay love affairs, drug addictions, etc..

J. Edgard Hoover is having a wet dream in his grave over the current NSA activities.

2. Likely the pictures staged at Abu Ghraib were for blackmail

Also likely that Jeffrey Gannon / Guckert's operations were a honey pot scheme aimed at DC figures.
