Under ongoing scrutiny from the public, the National Security Agency took another hit on Saturday when two Brazilian journalists joined forces to expose, what they refer to as, a “U.S. assassination program.” These men, Jeremy Scahill, author of the New York Times best seller “Dirty Wars” and Glenn Greenwald, the first journalist to report on the Edward Snowden leaks, suggest that they have a found a link between the NSA and targeted killings. “The connections between war and surveillance are clear.

“I don’t want to give too much away but Glenn and I are working on a project right now that has at its center how the National Security Agency plays a significant, central role in the U.S. assassination program (Star Tribune),” said Scahill at the debut of the film “Dirty Wars,” a documentary tracing Scahill’s journey around the world speaking to families of U.S. air strike victims.

Greenwald has also been leaving his mark. His articles, appearing in Britain’s Guardian newspaper, revealed that “American spy programs had aggressively targeted the Brazilian government and private citizens.” As a result, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff put off a scheduled dinner with American President Barack Obama and then condemned U.S. surveillance tactics during her address to the United Nations General Assembly.

The two journalists were very tight lipped about their claims of a United States assassination program and provided no evidence of such program and did not specify who was being targeted. Scahill explained that “There are so many stories that are yet to be published that we hope will produce ‘actionable intelligence,’ or information that ordinary citizens across the world can use to try to fight for change, to try to confront those in power.” As the men keep their work a mystery for now, we can be sure that when they do reveal their findings it will be backed by journalistic experience and a passion for the truth.
