When NSA Surveillance Methods are Leaked, Real Damage — and What’s the Leaker’s Goal?

Dan Raviv

In a conversation with WINA Radio in Charlottesville, Virginia, a co-author of Spies Against Armageddon — Dan Raviv of CBS News — discusses the apparent motivations of Edward Snowden, the contract employee for American intelligence agencies who decided to go rogue.  Snowden is believed to be still in Hong Kong, but he may not be — even as he seems to have plans to give even more secrets about U.S. government surveillance programs to journalists whom he trusts.

The Guardian newspaper, which has published many of Snowden’s leaks, has already revealed that an official summary of communications intercepts by the National Security Agency shows that the biggest target — for intercepting e-mails and details of telephone calls — is Iran.

In addition to combating terrorism, the NSA is tasked with helping the American government pursue its goals of nuclear non-proliferation.  Iran naturally is a target.

So far, at least, there is no information on how — or if — the NSA may be intercepting Israeli communications.

But here is an article by Dan Raviv and Yossi Melman that reveals spy-vs.-spy intrigue, centered around the United States Embassy in Tel Aviv: http://www.tabletmag.com/jewish-news-and-politics/30106/spies-like-us
