(RT) Snowden's first live broadcast: "Constitution being violated on massive scale" (FULL VIDEO)
RT(RT, courtesy of The Texas Tribune, March 10, 2014) Speaking remotely from Russia on Monday, former National Security Agency contractor and current whistleblower Edward Snowden told attendees at the SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, Texas that [multiple] encryption [layers] is still a powerful deterrent against government surveillance. [The NSA's main endeavor, what it has been spending most of its money and expertise on, is de-encrypters, code busters, decipherers to make most if not all encryption useless, or worse, to give us a false sense of inviolable privacy where we share secrets freely as if our electronic communications were unable to be breached. Even typing is not safe, some claim, because of its electronic signature, which the NSA can eavesdrop on remotely. The U.S.P.S. mail system certainly is not safe, and we sign away our rights by agreeing to the terms and conditions of most free email services, and likely of paid services too, with the exception perhaps of startpage.com email.]
