Project Vigilant and the Government/Corporate Destruction of Privacy
by Glenn Greenwald
Forbes’ technology writer Andy Greenberg reports that at the Defcon Security Conference yesterday, an individual named Chet Uber appeared with revelations about the case of accused WikiLeaks leaker Bradley Manning and government informant Adrian Lamo. These revelations are both remarkable in their own right and, more important, highlight some extremely significant, under-examined developments unrelated to that case. This is a somewhat complex story and it raises even more complex issues, but it is extremely worthwhile to examine.
