Abstract
This is a copy of an open letter to Mr. John Perkins, the author of Confessions of anEconomic Hit Man, and to his publisher, Mr Steven Piersanti. I sent this open letter viaemail in 12 June 2013, with cc to The Economist magazine. This open letter discusses Prismand Edward Snowden, who has disappeared from Hong Kong in Monday. Because of theimportance of the topics discussed, I decide to publish this open letter in vixra.org.June 18

, 2013VCThe letter:Att. Mr. Steven Piersanti & Mr. John PerkinsDear Sirs,I have read parts of your very interesting book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man(2004), though I find only the online version. I find your story is compelling. And also I readthe veracity memo written by Mr Piersanti, which makes the book even more worthy toread. I also learn that Mr John Perkins perhaps has connection with NSA's work in the past.However, I find that the basic premise of the book, that is the existence of "corporatocracy"behind activities of major US companies, is quite weak and arguable. One can argue insteadthat it is CIA/NSA who have control over USA and the remaining countries in the world,including developing countries. I include with this email an old book by Col. Fletcher Proutywith title of The Secret Team - How CIA and its allies control over USA and the World(1972, 1997). Chapter 23 of that book is particularly interesting to me.

Furthermore, with the recent information by Edward Snowden on Prism program (see text included below), I think NSA plans to control over communication and network both inUSA and other countries. If this plan is true, then it may have impact on privacy of commonpeople. Once again then, we see that NSA/CIA have control over USA and the World.However, I also read the news that Google has denied its participation in Prism program.Hopefully, this short note will help you to form further ideas. Edward Snowden has nowdisappeared, so perhaps we should better make an online petition to support him. I think he has done a brave step to report the Prism program to the media, as Mr. John Perkins didwith his book.Best wishes,Victor ChristiantoNotes:a.

Who is Edward Snowden?Edward Joseph Snowden, 29, is the whistleblower who leaked top secret slides relating tothe Prism programme operated by the National Security Agency (NSA) since 2007.The 29-year-old is reported to have grown up in Elizabeth City, North Carolina latermoving to Maryland near the NSA headquarters in Fort Meade and most recently living inHawaii.Very little is known about his personal life expect for the fact that until the beginning of May he was living in a house with his girlfriend in Hawaii, near where he worked for theNSA.What is his background?Snowden joined the US Army in 2003 but while training with the Special Forces he brokeboth his legs and was forced to quit.Having first worked as a security guard for the NSA, he later joined the CIA and despitefailing to obtain a high school diploma, his knowledge of computers allowed him to quicklymove up the ranks.In 2007 he was posted to Geneva with diplomatic cover and it was here Snowden first became disillusioned with "how my government functions and what its impact is in theworld. I realised that I was part of something that was doing far more harm than good."He quit the CIA in 2009 and began working with the NSA as an employee of variouscontractors, including Booz Allen, who he began working for just three months ago on anannual salary of $200,000.Where is Edward Snowden now?Snowden has been holed up in a luxury hotel in Hong Kong and has been since he left Hawaii on 20 May telling his employers he needed time off to get treatment for epilepsyand telling his girlfriend he needed to go away for work.Snowden says he left his hotel room a total of three times since arriving, becoming evermore paranoid that he is under surveillance. According to Ewan MacAskill, one of theGuardian reporters who broke the original story, Snowden is now running out of money.
