Exclusive: US bankrolled anti-Morsi activists - Features - Al Jazeera English.
I’ve almost given up on AlJaz. The stories on their web site are generally shallow and devoid of any insights or even raw facts that can’t be gotten anywhere else. They are too video-oriented. Most of the columnists that they carry are just self-promoting hucksters and clueless foils. Nonetheless this is a good piece with some actual writing and facts behind it. It lays out the ridiculous and self-contradictory meddling that the USSA has been engaging in in Egypt during the whole Morsi-coup-redux debacle. Lots of pointers. … read more

Snowden: UK government now leaking documents about itself | Glenn Greenwald | Comment is free | theguardian.com.
Wag the dog in full effect across all ponds and on top of most of them as well. The dominant theory I’ve seen expressed is that the UK is using The Independent to smear Snow at arm’s length by “showing” how “damaging” this kind of “revelation” is. The Cryptogon post has links to stories about the disruption in the under-sea cables that led to this which appeared in 2 8. I remember these things happening and the wide-spread speculation that it was anglo spooks of some variety. … read more
