Who Is Itai Ozderman? And Did The Washington Post Employee IMPERSONATE An ICE AGENT?

Itai Ozderman, is the Washington Post employee who has been accused of impersonating an ICE agent in Virginia, police say. The Maryland man works in information technology at the Post.

Ozderman, 35, was arrested by Montgomery County Police in February. He was charged with falsely acting as an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent, who at one point, went on ‘patrol’ while donning a bulletproof vest displaying an ICE placard & a Baltimore County Police Badge.

Ozderman, of Gaithersburg, impersonated an ICE agent on more than one occasion in the Falls Church area, according to police sources and court documents obtained by WJLA. Though court records show Ozderman is facing state charges in Maryland, the FBI was also involved in the arrest and it is not clear if he could also be charged in federal court. Continue reading

GOVT Plugged Directly Into U.S. Internet Companies

The National Security Agency and the FBI are tapping directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio, video, photographs, e-mails, documents and connection logs that enable analysts to track a person’s movements and contacts over time, reports The WashingtonPost..

The highly classified program, code-named PRISM, has not been disclosed publicly before. Its establishment in 2007 and six years of exponential growth took place beneath the surface of a roiling debate over the boundaries of surveillance and privacy. Even late last year, when critics of the foreign intelligence statute argued for changes, the only members of Congress who know about PRISM were bound by oaths of office to hold their tongues.

Jackie Chan Joins Anti American Club

I’ve always pictured Jackie Chan has a cheery kinda chap, but as it turns out the Rush-Hour star is quite the political slash actor type, which by the way, you guys should know by now I absolutely hate.

jackiechan-395

The ever trusty Washington Post reports on our comedian friend from the east,

Americans know Jackie Chan best for his cheery, acrobatic performances in action movies such as “Rumble in the Bronx” and “Rush Hour,” made successful by his amazing martial artistry and self-effacing comedy. Chinese know Chan, a Hong Kong native, for largely the same reasons. But they also know him for something most Americans might find surprising: He is passionately political, a staunch defender of the Chinese Communist Party and harsh critic of anyone he sees as opposing Beijing. Today, that includes the United States.

 
I guess it’s okay these days for actors to come to America from other countries while trashing US in some political way. Is it just me or is that wrong?

Now take a peek at what Chan said in the entire interview! Including calling America
the most corrupt country in the world.” Absolutely shocking.

Host: America.
 

Chan: The most corrupt in the world.

Host: Really?

Chan: Of course. Where does this Great Breakdown [financial crisis] come from? It started exactly from the world, the United States. When I was interviewed in the U.S., people asked me, I said the same thing. I said now that China has become strong, everyone is making an issue of China. If our own countrymen don’t support our country, who will support our country? We know our country has many problems. We [can] talk about it when the door is closed. To outsiders, [we should say] “our country is the best.”

Host: So he can’t get enough of his more than 20 ambassador titles. I think the Ministry of Foreign Affairs should ask him to be the ambassador to the United States.

Chan: Seriously, I am always like, when the door is closed, “Our country is like this and this. Who and who is not good.” But outside, “Our country is the best, like so and so, is the best.” You cannot say our country has problems [when you are outside], like “Yes, our country is bad.”

This interview is probably not so surprising to Chinese viewers. Chan has been stirring controversy for a few years now for criticizing Taiwan and Hong Kong as models of what can go wrong when you have “too much freedom.” He once said, in defending China’s censorship of his films, “Chinese people need to be controlled, otherwise they will do whatever they want.” So, in some ways, it was probably only a matter of time until he set his sights on the United States. Given that he called Taiwanese democracy “the biggest joke in the world,” it’s surprising his criticism of the U.S., which is commonly viewed as either Taipei’s sponsor or its puppet-master, wasn’t harsher.
