After closely following the National Security Agency story for two years (16+ months before anyone ever heard the name, Edward Snowden), I can honestly say that blogger and journalist Marcy Wheeler's real-time coverage of this incredible chapter in the Orwellian history of our nation's clandestine underbelly blows the doors off of virtually everyone (as she's again reminding us, in multiple stories over the past day), in terms of her intensive and incisive analysis of the hard information and public statements that are being released by our government in the wake of the Snowden document leaks this past June.

Compared to Wheeler's coverage of this story--and of the NSA, in general--nobody on the planet holds a candle to her work. Maybe that's why Newsweek has referred to her as "The Woman Who Knows The NSA's Secrets."

Once again in Pulitzer-worthy style, on Tuesday, she pointed out what virtually no other working blogger or journalist has the understanding, gumption nor chops to decipher, and it's nothing less than stunning, page one/lead news that virtually no captured mainstream media outlet will cover, let alone run directly under their masthead or at the top of their broadcast. In multiple posts at her Emptywheel blog, Ms. Wheeler is reporting that not only has Director of National Intelligence James Clapper just acknowledged that the NSA--essentially admitting that the organization is in direct violation of its original, government-chartered mandate--surveils this country's entire domestic population; but, as a byproduct of Marcy's extensive knowledge-base of the minutiae contained within the related documents released by our government, to date, she factually reports how the NSA engages in these efforts for reasons not even remotely related to international terrorism.
