Over the weekend, investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill told an audience in Brazil that he and Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald are working on a project involving "how the National Security Agency plays a significant, central role in the U.S. assassination program."

"The connections between war and surveillance are clear. I don't want to give too much away but Glenn and I are working on a project right now that has at its center how the National Security Agency plays a significant, central role in the U.S. assassination program," said Scahill, speaking to moviegoers in Rio de Janeiro, where the documentary based on his book (DIRTY WARS, ed) made its Latin American debut at the Rio Film Festival.
"There are so many stories that are yet to be published that we hope will produce 'actionable intelligence,' or information that ordinary citizens across the world can use to try to fight for change, to try to confront those in power," said Scahill. [source YAHOO NEWS]
I bet the ridiculous G3 or Global Gambling Game assassins, agents and tandems are being oiled up and prep'd for OPs as you read this. More exploding cars or Boston Brakes or folk murdered at the wheel?
Big Question: as many major newspapers have had access to this NSA/PRISM material for months, why is this shit taking so long to come out? Oh, yeah, GAGGING ORDER?
TWELVE DAYS LATER UPDATE: The new stories, Greenwald said, should be expected in international media in the coming months. The first will include details of U.S. spying in France and Spain, similar to revelations of U.S. spying in Brazil that has angered the Brazilian government and set off a chain of tense exchanges between the two.
Greenwald also noted that he is in daily contact with Edward Snowden, as well as with the Berlin-based U.S. filmmaker Laura Poitras, who has been working with him on the NSA stories. Together they are carefully sifting through the “thousands and thousands" of NSA documents yet to shock the world, said Greenwald.
“We are undertaking high-risk journalism. We shall continue doing so until we publish the last document I have,” Greenwald recently told a Brazilian congressional panel investigating the allegations that Washington spied on Brazil. [source COMMON DREAMS]
