Greenwald Reneges and Cryptome Cashes in as the New CISPA Approaches

by Scott Creighton

With the new CISPA (CISA) ready and waiting in the wings, Glenn Greenwald’s recent promise to release details on exactly who the government has been spying on couldn’t have been timed any better… for some… not so much for those STILL being spied on all this time. Didn’t hurt the sale of his new book either, I suppose, which hit the stands on May 13th.
“Milking every red cent he can from his CIA-op “Edward Snowden” leaks, the billionaire’s b*tch, Glenn Greenwald has promised to finally release actual names of people, activists, political critics, writers and groups being illegally and unconstitutionally spied on by the federal government in tandem with various globalist corporate conglomerates.
You think he might have led with that story a year ago in order to help stop the madness, right? To let all those people and organizations know everything they are saying and writing is being harvested so they can take appropriate personal or legal action that will protect them, right? wrong.” me, May 30
Last night Glenn Tweeted that he was going to publish his big story at midnight on his billionaire-backed website, The Intercept. The masses (and the masses of obvious influence peddling bots) were all in a frenzy. FINALLY Big Glenn was going to be the hero he has been marketing himself to be. That would silence all those Snowden Truthers and Greenwald Detractors out there!
But then… 8 hours later… came the renege:

“After 3 months working on our story, USG [the United States government] today suddenly began making new last-minute claims which we intend to investigate before publishing” Glenn #BillionairesBitch Greenwald
No, Mr. Greenwald did not release the names of those out here in the real world being spied on by the government with an assist from all those companies that are pushing the new CISPA like their corporate lives depend on it (because they do)
Some of Mr. Greenwald’s fans took exception to this most recent (long string of them at this point) marketing ploy and one of them went so far as to leave him a Tweet with a link back to one of my earlier articles on the Snowden Crisis.
