In further lulz it appears that Ecuador is seriously unconcerned about pissing off the US....Doubling down on Putin's snark, Ecuador takes the moral high ground as far as human rights are concerned by offering to help banana republic USA to reform itself...
"The government of leftist President Rafael Correa came up with an angry response on Thursday after an influential US senator said he would use his leverage over trade issues to cut preferential treatment of Ecuadoran goods at the US market, should Ecuador grant political asylum to Snowden.
"Ecuador will not accept pressures or threats from anyone, and it does not traffic in its values or allow them to be subjugated to mercantile interests," government spokesman Fernando Alvarado said at a news conference.
He added that Ecuador is willing to allocate $23 million annually, an equivalent of the sum that it gained from the benefits, to fund human rights training in the US. It will "avoid violations of privacy, torture and other actions that are denigrating to humanity," Alvarado said.

26 Senators have some pretty difficult questions for DNI James Clapper about the NSA's bulk collection programs.
A thread for writing to congress deserves it's own thread
The father of suspected National Security Agency leaker Edward J. Snowden is seeking a deal with the Justice Department that would allow his son to remain free prior to a trial in exchange for his surrender to face espionage charges.
It also requests that the younger Mr. Snowden would not be subject to a gag order and that he be allowed to pick the venue of his trial, and says that if any of the agreements were violated the case would be dropped.

U.S. bugged EU offices, computer networks: German magazine | Reuters
The United States bugged European Union offices and gained access to EU internal computer networks, according to secret documents cited in a German magazine on Saturday, the latest in a series of exposures of alleged U.S. spy programs.
Der Spiegel cited from a September 2010 "top secret" document of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) which it said fugitive former NSA contractor Edward Snowden had taken with him and which the weekly's journalists had seen in part.
The document outlines how the NSA bugged offices and spied on EU internal computer networks in Washington and at the United Nations, not only listening to conversations and phone calls but also gaining access to documents and emails.
The document explicitly called the EU a "target".

Father proposes deal for Snowden's voluntary return - CNN
The father of Edward J. Snowden has offered federal authorities a deal that he says would likely lead the accused leaker to return voluntarily to the United States to face espionage charges.
The proposal was laid out in a letter, dated Thursday and obtained Friday by CNN's "Amanpour," addressed to Attorney General Eric Holder and written by Bruce Fein, a Washington-based lawyer for Snowden's father, Lonnie G. Snowden.
It demands that the former National Security Agency computer contractor who exposed details about U.S. surveillance programs remain free prior to trial; not be subject to a gag order; and be tried in a place of his choosing.
It further demands that, if any of those promises is broken, the prosecution would be dismissed.

Here's one more post from last December:
If memory serves me the NSA probably have quantum computer.
A company called Q-tel make them, they sold one recently to lockheed martin
Q-tel is part owned by the feds.
Also if rumour is true the NSA has the ability to store 10 to the 8 bytes of info.
Alleged US security officials said NSA leaker, journalist should be 'disappeared' – report
from June 10 but in case it wasn't posted here, here it is.
Not to be perhaps confused with *In-Q-Tel, the not-for-profit Venture Capital Firm that is a US CIA project.
I couldn't find any companies named "Q-Tel" that manufactures quantum computers.
But there are a number of companies using that name - a Google Link: http://tinyurl.com/na86avo
