[discuss] Snowden Revelations: What concrete activities were revealed that led us here?

This is what I’ve come to  suspect, but I don’t want to jump to conclusions.  So, I’m looking for some concrete facts and connections to see if I can make the “If Snowden, then Montevideo” logic less of a leap.

As for  “due process, accountability and oversight,“ there may be very significant issues with each of these and the US surveillance program (though I suspect that this could be said about most if not all national surveillance programs, to a greater or lesser extent).  These may be profound multilateral  issues, but they are only IG issues to the extent that lack of same allowed the US to use its “special relationship” to the Internet to its advantage.

I think the biggest issue is not what the USG is doing or can do but the lack of proper due process, accountability and oversight, which 1net, the meeting in BR, the UN, etc, has no means to correct.

The revelations of the US spying particularly on BR an DE, shifted the bilateral ball game into a "multilateral" effort to counter those actions and we are being dragged into a proxy fight where we don't belong.
