This particular request by NSA was done months before 9-11 in 2001. Remember, in one of our previous articles we proved that NSA is run by Israel. I know, I was surprised as well. Who would have thought that our best ally, at that time, was also our biggest enemy. No one did. But with the arrest of this gentleman, NSA set an example to those who would not co-operate, proving they could turn your life into a living hell.
No wonder other companies cooperated after that. This whole period from 9-11 til now has been soooo nazi Germany, it isn't even funny. With Operation paper clip, and the nazi's brought to America after the war, I see how the cozy relationship between the zionists and Nazi's continued unabated after WW 2 and how and why they play the same game here as they did in Germany only bigger and better, hiding behind each other and yet they are both the same.....
Former US West CEO Released from Prison
By Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall, Veterans Today
Former US West CEO Joseph Nacchio was released from prison last week after completing a four year insider trading sentence.
He still claims the NSA framed him on the insider trading charges – after he refused to participate in their illegal phone surveillance program in 2001. US West was the only major telecommunication program that refused to spy on its customers.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Nacchio feels vindicated by Edward Snowden’s recent revelations about NSA spying on Americans’ phone and email communications.
Nacchio was convicted of selling US West stock based on inside information about the company’s deteriorating financial health.
He denies this, claiming he believed US West’s lucrative contracts with the federal government would continue. Instead his refusal to cooperate with the NSA resulted in the wholesale cancellation of government contracts.
Nacchio had evidence supporting this claim. However the judge ruled it was classified and prevented his defense team from presenting it. The redacted NSA files were only made public after the former CEO was convicted and sentenced. However Harper’s and others have always supported Nacchio’s contention that he was prosecuted in retaliation for saying “no” to the NSA.
Whether or not Vlaccio is guilty of insider trading (all the legal arguments are summarized at Race to the Bottom), the most illuminating information in the redacted files is that the NSA was pressuring US West to spy on customers in February 2001. This was a good seven months before the 9-11 attacks, the supposed justification for curtailing Americans’ civil liberties.
