BS Alert: NSA documents say by 2008, 300 terrorists captured using intelligence from XKeyscore

(NOTE: so where are they all? Not in Guantanamo, because most of them have been sent on their merry way, though I am sure more than a few have decided to become terrorist against the USA for being tortured unlawfully and for no good reason.)

What Happened in the U.S.

The trial of Bradley Manning neared its end when Army Judge Col. Denise Lind convicted the WikiLeaks whistleblower on 19 charges, including six counts of violating the Espionage Act; she did not find Manning guilty of the most serious charge of “aiding the enemy.” Lind could sentence Manning to 136 years in prison, but will probably hand him a much shorter sentence by collapsing similar charges together.

In other intelligence news, the Obama administration and the Guardian revealed new details about the NSA’s surveillance programs. The White House declassified a secret court order that gives NSA agents permission to collect info on thousands of people when investigating one suspect. Meanwhile, the Guardian published slides that show the U.S. conducts surveillance on 150 countries around the world.
