NBC Censors Snowdens Critical 9/11 Comments From Prime Time Audience
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Global Research
Posted: June 2nd, 2014
Statements made by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden regarding the 9/11 terror attacks were edited out of his NBC Nightly News interview with Brian Williams ... in what appears to be an attempt to bolster legitimacy for the agencys controversial surveillance programs. Snowdens comments surrounding the failure of dragnet surveillance in stopping the 9/11 attacks were censored from the prime time broadcast and instead buried in an hour long clip on NBCs website. "The CIA knew who these guys were. The problem was not that we werent collecting information, it wasnt that we didnt have enough dots, it wasnt that we didnt have a haystack, it was that we did not understand the haystack that we had. NBCs decision to bury Snowdens comments are unsurprising given the fact that the 9/11 attacks are exhaustively used by the federal government as the prime justification for surveilling millions of innocent Americans. Snowden remarked on the governments prior knowledge of the accused Boston bombers as well, also cut from the prime time interview. Were missing things like the Boston Marathon bombings where all of these mass-surveillance systems, every domestic dragnet in the world, didnt reveal guys that the Russian intelligence service told us about by name, Snowden said. Despite ... government officials pointing to 9/11 foreknowledge, whether missed or ignored, establishment media outlets have continually worked to keep such voices out of relevant reporting.
