Snowden -Laura Poitras [My Country, My Country & The Oath]- Surveillance - Harassment - Security

One thing to note about being a whistleblower - do it at the wrong time or too quietly and you will probably be forced to swallow the whistle.

Update: OTM 8/20/2013 (Bottom) and another NYTimes from 8/13/13

That Laura Poitras was once a chef and is now a recognized videographer (Oscar nominated) and won a MacArthur “genius” grant must be quite a story in itself?!

(2008 -Still in Motion) Interview: Laura Poitras, Director MY COUNTRY, MY COUNTRY

The fact that she did the recent Snowden video many of us have seen clips of makes it more interesting and she was obviously in Hong Kong.  The fact that she was contacted via "encrypted" communications last January by Snowden just adds more to the plot.

For the past week, the Guardian and Washington Post have been reporting on some extraordinary revelations about previously secret massive NSA surveillance programs that invade the privacy of both Americans and those abroad. On Sunday, the whistleblower and source to the stories about the PRISM surveillance program revealed himself as 29-year-old Edward Snowden. This is his story, in his own words.

I look forward to the "new documentary".
