LOTS OF SECRET NSA DOCUMENTS! (Plus: A death threat against Glenn Greenwald)

Glenn Grennwald's No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA, and the U.S. Surveillance State is out now. I have not yet read it. However, I've read the Amazon reviews, most of which are positive. One of the earliest, by someone calling himself Bamartr "reader24", seems to be a threat:
where are the documents? You've already stolen them! Im sure you could have paid $.25 a copy and still been able to drink the good vodka. It must be horrible to have to watch your back for the rest of your young life. Just think of the last thing you'll hear. And it wont be your fellow treasonists in Mockba. Click, the end.
It's clear that Bamartr, whoever he is, has accepted Edward Jay Epstein's absurd take on the Snowden affair -- that the whole thing is a Russian covert op. I hope that Epstein's paranoia doesn't lead to violence.

Many of the documents referenced in Greenwald's book may be found here:

You may have some difficulty in opening that file. I will take the liberty of publishing a number of those docs -- although they will no doubt make fuller sense when seen in the context of Greenwald's book. Of course, the phrase "Collect it All" speaks for itself...

Do you use Microsoft's Skydrive? Hey! You! Get off of my cloud!

Marcy Wheeler talks about the case of an Ethiopian expatriate -- an opponent of the current government of that country (which is secretly aiding the NSA) -- who found out that the NSA has been spying on his Skype calls and emails...

The digs at France and Israel are interesting...

About the following: Isn't there some sort of law against intercepting the mail?

I keep telling you people to avoid Facebook...

They track you in the air...

Yes, the following is an actual government document. And this one's not classified! Cheeky, eh wot?

The "Information Ops" category is of particular interest to me...

Does this really seem like the sort of thing that would be done only to a jihadist...?

JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group) is British. See here for more...

I think it's pretty plain for all to see that "we the people" are the enemy they are looking to control. Most actual terrorists are likely on the payroll of one nation or another's intelligence agency (probably more than one). This is all about control. Freedom is obviously not something these people give a single thought to....and obviously the constitution is not a concern for them either. The thing that bothers me here is that I doubt the majority of Americans are going to read Glenn's book, or follow the Intercept. They will only see the propagandized version of all this on the major media outlets.
