Considering the pro-NSA nature of the source, the Wall Street Journal, late tonight, has published an unusual story, titled: "New Details Show Broader NSA Surveillance Reach." At the very least, the article represents a propagandized concession in response to public clamoring for greater knowledge regarding the vast extent of the National Security Agency's domestic surveillance programs. Citing multiple unnamed sources, today's WSJ lead provides yet another confirmation(above and beyond Edward Snowden, and the media surrounding his revelations), albeit via an NSA-centric narrative, which definitively verifies much of what NSA whistleblowers William BinneyJ. Kirk WiebeThomas Drake,  Russell Tice, AT&T senior technical specialist Mark Klein, and New York Times reporters Eric Lichtblau and James Risen, as well as many others, have been providing in reports to the public for the past 12 years.

From the perspective of this blogger, today's WSJ article by Siobahn Gorman and Jennifer Valentino Devries is somewhat of a milestone. Essentially, it provides the public with a veritable "verification from the status quo" (concerning previously-reported facts) from the top of the mainstream media's food chain in our current news cycle; to the point where, IMHO, many of the media outlets and pundits that have been going out of their way to discredit these brave whistleblowers' stories, over many months and years past, will have little choice from this point forward but to acknowledge these inconvenient truths about our inverted totalitarian state as being.... wait for it...reality!  (Naturally, in the WSJ's version of "reality," their "facts" are peppered with government assurances of "effective oversight" which, in and of itself, has been proven in recent reports on this massive story to be patently false.)
