INTERNET FASCISM; NSA Spying Scandal Far Worse, Original NSA Whistleblower Says ALL DATA Is Vacuumed Into NSA System, Up to 40 Companies
“Q: What does the Patriot Act mean to American freedoms? A: It means we donʼt have any. Itʼs setting up a totalitarian state. When the government has that much information, they can use the IRS to intimidate people or anything else. They can send the FBI at people, like they did to me and some others. So thatʼs the power that the government has – they have the power of the gun and the force and if they have the knowledge about you then they can start to use that against you – especially if you donʼt agree with the policies that theyʼre setting up.” – William Binney, NSA Whistleblower
(AE) – When the Associated Press (AP) Wiretapping Scandal first broke in the news I found it incredibly odd that the AP was not aware that ALL DATA, not just phone numbers, has been collected since the original AT&T NSA Wiretapping Scandal was exposed in 2006.
If the AP, and every other media company in the world, were actually doing their jobs they would have been out in front exposing this completely illegal secret wiretapping program, that then morphed into Bush’s “Terrorist Surveillance Program”, once it was discovered. So the AP is now concerned about being spied on? Where the hell have they been for 7 years???
The purpose of this article was to emphasize that the NSA Spying Scandal 2013 is FAR WORSE than it’s being portrayed in the media that… ALL DATA is being collected from ALL SOURCES… and this data collection program has become much worse under Obama.
William Binney, the original NSA whistleblower, who exposed the NSA’s complete data vacuuming program in December 2012, has just done a new barn burner interview today… both MUST SEE videos are below…

BOSTON BOMBINGS; Friend Says Ibragim Todashev Interviewed ‘At Least 5 Times’ By FBI, Never Asked About Triple Murders, ‘It Was A Game’
“They [FBI] talked to him a lot on the phone… but when they want to see him, like meet him up, it was like, from what I know, like 5 times, but it could be more, at least 5 times… never be mentioned the three, the triple murder, never… he was afraid… one of the agents was talking to me for like three and a half hours… they’d been following us… it [the interview] was really friendly, now that I think about it, it was a game.” – Khusen Taramov
(AE) – While researching the two articles I wrote yesterday about how Ibragim Todashev was killed “execution style” by the FBI, see my previous article here, I ran across a relatively unwatched (358 views) interview with his close friend, Khusen Taramov, posted by the Boston Globe.
This is further evidence that Todashev WAS NOT being investigated for the Triple Murders, therefore he WAS NOT about to “sign a confession”, because he already had an Atlanta alibi… see my previous article here.
See this very interesting interview below…
2013.5.23 Friend Of Todashev Talks About FBI Interviews (Khusen Taramov) (thebostonglobe, youtube.com):
(Boston Globe) The best friend of the Chechen man shot and killed by a law enforcement agent says that authorities never questioned them about an unsolved Waltham triple murder prior to the deadly interview.
BOSTON BOMBINGS; Ibragim Todashev, Killed During FBI Interrogation, WAS NOT GOING TO CONFESS To Triple Murder, He Had Atlanta Alibi
“His wife, by the way, does have evidence that he was with her in Atlanta during the time that those murders allegedly occurred.” – Hassan Shibly
The idea that Todashev was about to “sign a confession” to taking part the Triple Murder with Tamerlan Tsarnaev is NOT TRUE… Todashev had proof of being in Atlanta at the time these murders occurred on September 11, 2011.

2013.5.30 Video; CAIR Rep On CNN To Discuss Call For Probe Of FBI Shooting Of Unarmed Muslim (CAIRtv, youtube.com):
(TAMPA, FL, 5/29/13) — Later today, the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-FL) will hold a news conference in Orlando to call for an independent investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division into the FBI’s shooting of an unarmed Orlando Muslim after hours of interrogation in his house.
Sources now say Ibragim Todashev was unarmed when he was shot and killed by an FBI agent during lengthy questioning in Orlando last week.
Sources: Ibragim Todashev was Unarmed When FBI Agent Killed Him
“Our call for an independent investigation of this disturbing incident is not just about the victim and his family, but is also about constitutional rights and the rule of law,” said CAIR-Tampa Executive Director Hassan Shibly.
A friend who was at the apartment during the interrogation and Todashev’s widow will take part in the news conference.
BOSTON BOMBINGS; Ibragim Todashev, Shot 7 Times, Once In The Back Of The Head ‘Execution Style’, During FBI Interrogation
(AE) – This is straight out of the FBI’s racist COINTELPRO murder tactics of the 1960′s…
It has now been revealed that Ibragim Todashev was shot 7 times, once in the back of the head, during a 5 hour FBI interrogation in his home.
The FBI have changed their version of the story at least FIVE TIMES!!!!
The idea that Todashev was about to “sign a confession” to taking part the Triple Murder with Tamerlan Tsarnaev is NOT TRUE… Todashev had proof of being in Atlanta at the time these murders occurred on September 11, 2011… see my next article here.

An advocacy group is demanding a civil rights investigation into the death of a Chechen immigrant who was shot to death by authorities in central Florida while being questioned about his ties to one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. (May 30)
2013.5.30 Father Says FBI Killed Son Linked To Boston Suspect ‘Execution Style’ While ’100 Percent Unarmed’ (FOX News, youtube.com):
5/30/13 – Earlier this month, Chechen immigrant Ibragim Todashev was fatally shot by the FBI when he was being questioned about the Boston Marathon bombing and his ties to suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev. On Thursday, his father was at a news conference in Moscow — where he claimed the FBI killed his son “execution style” while he was entirely unarmed.
“Abdul-Baki Todashev showed journalists 16 photographs that he said were of his son, Ibragim, in a Florida morgue,” CBS News reported. ”He said his son had six gunshot wounds to his torso and one to the back of his head and the pictures were taken by his son’s friend, Khusen Taramov.”
He said Taramov sent him the photos and that his son was “100 percent unarmed.” (A spokesman for Boston police declined comment to CBS News on that claim.)
“I’d only seen and heard things like that in the movies — they shoot somebody and then a shot in the head to make sure,” Todashev said. “These just aren’t FBI agents, they’re bandits.”
According to the report, the younger Todashev and Tsarnaev once trained together at a gym — but “evidence also suggested a criminal connection, involvement in a grisly triple murder that occurred in September 2011, in Waltham, Mass.”
During the interrogation, he reportedly implicated himself in the triple homicide (in which no one was charged) was being pushed to confession. It was then that he snapped, eliciting the fatal response from the FBI.
BOSTON BOMBINGS; Two FBI Hostage Rescue Team Members Dead From Helicopter Fall Off Virginia, Involved In Arrest Of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
(AE) – The FBI’s Hostage Rescue Team (HRT) role in the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is unclear… Dzhokhar was captured by the Boston SWAT Team, who can’t seem to get their story straight, see my previous article here.
This could just be a coincidence, but it’s worth noting, especially considering all the deaths connected to this case…
2013.5.20 FBI; Agents Died In Fall From Helicopter Off Va. Coast (hamptonroads.com):
Last month, the team was involved in the arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings. And in February, it rescued a 5-year-old boy held hostage for six days in an underground bunker in Alabama.

BOSTON BOMBINGS; Ibragim Todashev Killed By FBI During 5 Hour Interrogation, ‘He Had A Bad Feeling, There’s Going To Be A Setup, He Felt Inside He Was Going To Get Shot’
“He had a bad feeling… he felt like there’s going to be a setup, a bad setup against him… he told me they’re making up such crazy stuff, I don’t know why they’re doing it.” – Khusn Taramiv
(AE) – The FBI had been following and harassing Ibragim Todashev and his friend Khusen Taramov. Then the FBI questioned them both for 3 hours, but they wanted to further question Todashev for an additional 2 hours, that would equal a 5 hour interrogation without a lawyer… but then they shot him to death, just as he was about to sign a confession to participating in a triple murder with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, but instead of signing the confession he decided to attack them with a knife — no, strike that — they now deny the knife attack happened.
I wonder if they read Todashev his “Miranda Warning” before questioning him for 5 hours??? After all, none of the evidence obtained during such an interrogation would be admissible in court without first giving him the “Miranda Warning”… see my previous article here.
Maybe the unsigned confession letter will be enough… or perhaps they’ll find a “Martyr Note” scrawled on his bathroom wall, or maybe inside a boat if he owns one… see my previous article here.
Either way, the advice of “don’t talk to the FBI, it will lead to no good” would be very wise… see my next article here.
2013.5.22 An FBI Agent Shot & Killed A Tamerlan Tsarnaev Acquaintance (bostonmagazine.com):
Todashev’s friend, Khusen Taramov, spoke to several local news stations Wednesday, saying the FBI had questioned him and Todashev for three hours on Tuesday and that the FBI had followed both of them more than once since the marathon bombing. The questioning seems like part of the FBI’s broader effort to track down other Chechan immigrants who knew the Tsarnaevs to test the theory that they grew radical on their own and without influence from fellow U.S. residents. …
2013.5.22 Ibragim Todashev, Questioned In Connection With Marathon Bombings, Shot & Killed By FBI Agent (riaalterego, youtube.com):
NBC News reports that an FBI agent shot and killed a man who had been interviewed over ties to April’s Boston Marathon bombing.
The individual, identified by friends as 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, reportedly knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older, deceased Boston suspect through the world of Mixed Martial Arts.
He had been initially cooperative with the special agent and two Massachusetts State Police troopers who were interviewing him, according to WESH-TV in Orlando. But at some point during the interview process, he allegedly attacked the agent, who then fired his weapon.
The station quotes a friend of Todashev, Khusn Taramiv, who said he was also interviewed.
“(The FBI) took me and my friend, the suspect that got killed. They were talking to us, both of us, right? And they said they need him for a little more, for a couple more hours, and I left, and they told me they’re going to bring him back. They never brought him back,” Taramiv said.
Taramiv also said that Todashev “felt inside he was going to get shot” by the FBI.
“We are currently responding to a shooting incident involving an FBI special agent,” FBI spokesman Dave Couvertier said in a statement, according to NBC. “The agent encountered the suspect while conducting official duties. The suspect is deceased.”
In addition to questioning Todashev about the marathon bombing, authorities were investigating if he and Tamerlan had carried out a triple murder on Sept. 11, 2011, in Waltham, Mass., according to the New York Times.
BOSTON BOMBINGS; Ibragim Todashev Shot & Killed By FBI During ‘Murder Confession’, ‘There’s A War On Muslims In This Country’
“The first lesson that we see is, don’t talk to the FBI, it will lead to no good, and now we see that you can even end up dead… if the FBI knocks, don’t talk to them, tell them to speak to your lawyer, if you do not have a lawyer contact the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) and get representation.” – Jeff Iosbaker
(AE) – The FBI are now claiming that Ibragim Todashev was about to sign a confession to participating in a triple murder with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, involving drugs, that occurred on September 11, 2011.
Yes, once again 911 is promoted in this case… it first came up with Dzhokhar, see my previous article here.
We have what appears to be classic COINTELPRO tactics of attempted entrapment and murder… very reminiscent of FBI strategies used against groups like the Black Panthers in the 1960′s.
2013.5.23 If FBI Knocks, Don’t Let Them In (PressTV, youtube.com):
Press TV has conducted an interview with Joe Iosbaker, Stop the FBI Repression, Chicago about the incident of an FBI agent that fatally shot a Chechen man after a cooperative interview with him about the Boston Marathon bombing.
BOSTON BOMBINGS; Dzhokhar Found Pen & Wrote Confession Letter ‘Martyr Note’ On Wall Of Boat, Solves Miranda Problem
‘Miller explained that while Dzhokar admitted many of the same details to authorities, those admissions came “during the time he was interrogated but before he was given his Miranda warning.” The note gives prosecutors supporting, clearly admissible evidence even if there is an fight over whether things he said before he was given his Miranda rights are admissible as evidence.’ – CBS
(AE) - This story just keeps getting worse… so after 32 days we’re finally told that Dzhokhar wrote a confession letter, or “martyr note”, on the wall of the boat he was hiding in???
Now the problems of the FBI breaking the law by not giving Dzhokhar his “Miranda Warning” has been solved. For more discussion about the misconception of so called “Miranda Rights”, see my previous article here.
Besides all the other problems with this story, just how did Dzhokhar know his brother Tamerlan was a martyr??? He had no way of knowing Tamerlan was dead… especially since the story of Dzhokhar driving over Tamerlan while fleeing has been contradicted by witnesses.
2013.5.16 Boston Bombings Suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Left Note In Boat He Hid In, Sources Say (cbsnews.com):
(CBS News) Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left claiming responsibility for the April 13 attack
on the Boston Marathon, reports CBS News senior correspondent John Miller.
Sources tell Miller that Tsarnaev wrote the note in the boat he was hiding in as police pursued him, and as he bled from gunshot wounds sustained in an earlier shootout between police and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
The note, scrawled with a pen on the interior wall of the cabin, said the bombings were retribution for U.S. military action in Afghanistan and Iraq, and called the Boston victims collateral damage in the same way Muslims have been in the American-led wars. “When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims,” the note added.
Dzhokar said he didn’t mourn older brother Tamerlan, the other suspect in the bombings, writing that by that point, Tamerlan was a martyr in paradise — and that he expected to join him there.
Miller’s sources say the wall the note was written on was riddled with bullet holes from shots fired into the boat. The shots were fired after Dzhokhar came up through the tarp covering the boat amid police fears that he had another bomb.
According to Miller, the note will be a significant piece of evidence in any Dzhokar trial — it is “certainly admissible,” and paints a clear picture of the brothers’ motive, “consistent with what he told investigators while he was in custody,” Miller said Thursday on “CBS This Morning.”
Miller explained that while Dzhokar admitted many of the same details to authorities, those admissions came “during the time he was interrogated but before he was given his Miranda warning.” The note gives prosecutors supporting, clearly admissible evidence even if there is an fight over whether things he said before he was given his Miranda rights are admissible as evidence.
It took days to learn the identity of the bombers [NOT TRUE, THE FBI KNEW THEIR IDENTITY WHEN THEY RELEASED THE PHOTOS - JOEL], and there was no official claim of responsibility, which is unusual in these cases. As investigators move forward with the investigation, “the last big question remaining is going to be who else knew anything? Is it going to be the wife? Is it someone overseas?” Miller said.
The suspects didn’t plan to stop after the Boston bombings, authorities say. They intended to go to New York City and set off a device or devices in Times Square.
The brothers didn’t have well-developed plans for New York, but they still had intent, Miller said. So as
Dzhokhar lay in the boat, he wanted to leave a message behind clearly supporting what the note says he and his brother had just done.
For a plot as organized as the one was for Boston, it seems odd that — with a choice of leaving behind a
martyrdom video on a computer or a more formal claim of responsibility — the brothers had nothing
prepared, Miller said. A larger terror organization ensures that such videos are made out of the country and are ready to launch after the attack.
So in the end, Miller concludes, the boat note was a way for Dzhokhar to get on the record as publicly claiming responsibility for the bombings.

I don’t necessarily agree with every speaker, or every point raised, but in general this is an excellent overview of just SOME of the problems with the FBI’s official story.
