Two Infamous Serial Leakers and Your Privacy

Two infamous serial leakers' paths have just crossed, as new documents from Edward Snowden reveal just how much energy the NSA devoted to spying on Julian Assange and Wikileaks.   According to documents from The Intercept, the US and British governments targeted not only the organization itself, but also "the human network that supports WikiLeaks." 

In one instance, Britain's spying agencies tapped fiber-optic cables and logged IP addresses from every visitor to a certain WikiLeaks site. 

Another showed that the US government urged its allies to charge Assange criminally over Afghanistan leaks, and considered designating WikiLeaks a "malicious foreign actor" -- normally a term used for terrorist organizations. For his part, Assange called the NSA's actions "unlawful and reckless" and urged an investigation into the activities.

And of course, we are all aware that there is a huge debate on Capital Hill right now about how the NSA has been going over the phone data of ordinary Americans.

What does this mean to you??

There is a secret WAR happening right now…

The target? Your Privacy!

In recent times our personal privacy from Government and large corporations has become virtually non-existent…

We, as a free country, should be able to share only the information we want to share…

Government has proven time and time again they are not qualified to care for our private data…

With identity theft being the fastest growing crime in America we all need to take action to protect ourselves…

If you don’t, you can become a victim and lose everything, literally overnight…
