Booz Allen: Privatized Terrorism & Insider Trading
by DANGEROUS MINDS
(6-26-13)None Dare Call it FASCISM: How the NSA has (already) privatized tyranny
Though most people seem to be dimly aware of the fact that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was not technically an employee of NSA or the US Federal Government, I don't see anyone raising the kind of stink that this pertinent little fact truly merits. And combine that with the "anything goes" environment that was clearly in operation while Snowden was peering into pretty much whatever he wanted, and the implications are pretty fucking serious indeed.
Let's start with one of Snowden's comments to Glenn Greenwald and the UK's Guardian newspaper:
"But I sitting at my desk certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone from you or your accountant to a Federal judge to even the President if I had a personal e-mail."
Say what? So I'm not allowed to even know this program exists, but a high school dropout working in a lowly cubicle in Booz Allen Hamilton can listen in to everything I say on the telephone or write in an email or post on the Internet? What the fuck? Doesn't anyone see how screwy that is?
Maybe we've just stopped giving a shit and are hoping to ride out the last years of Empire in blissful ignorance, chatting about cute cats on Facebook and watching our favorite shows on TV (The Mad Men season finale was just superb, wasn't it?) OK, I get that.
