Did The NSA Surveillance Program Also Assist A 'U.S. Assassination Program'?

Reporters To Reveal 'US Assassination Program' -- Press TV (Iran)

Two American journalists are working together to expose the role of the US National Security Agency in what they described as a “US assassination program.”

Contributor to The Nation magazine Jeremy Scahill and Rio-based journalist Glenn Greenwald are working on the project.

"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 US assassination program," Scahill said on Saturday.

"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," he added.

My Comment: When I first read the Press TV report I was more than skeptical .... Press TV is managed by the Iranian government, and they are known for spreading propaganda. But the Associated Press is now breaking on this story .... and both Glenn Greenwald (who is the lead reporter on NSA revelations) and The Nation magazine reporter Jeremy Scahill are two well known and influential investigative reporters who do not publish drivel.

As to what is my take .... the CIA drone program is an assassination program. But what I suspect that makes this story explosive is that Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill have the documents that reveal how the NSA cooperated with the CIA in making this program work.
