Regarding the NSA Response video
, (thank you for posting) Mr. Ledgett's response that
Snowden could have taken his concerns to his supervisor was laughable and an indication of the standard script of answers we get in the rest of the
video, which were no answers at all, really. I mean Snowden has put forth evidence that has not been denied or refuted. Yet all we get from NSA is he
should have gone to through the proper channels, blah blah blah. Bullcrap. Snowden would have been washed down a drain, literally.
It was telling when he said that national interests have been hurt because now they are not getting cooperation where they need it. Um, like who?
Other countries? For show perhaps but they are doing the same things! Google/FB/et all? No, they just want to be paid more! Again no real information,
just whining. But then he turns to CORPORATE interests are not getting the deals they want. He even says that U.S. businesses are now at a
disadvantage because other countries want to buy NSA-safe products. Um, so is he is defending corporate interests or national interest or are they now
one in the same? Besides, you don't think U.S. companies are NOT going offer NSA-safe products to stay competitive? Really? More hollow complaints
I find it disturbing that near the end, Mr. Ledgett, although he doesn't agree with Snowden's method, agrees that "it's an important
conversation." What happened to congress knowing about it and that there already had been a conversation, in secret, but there was one, right? If
they don't feel what they are doing is wrong then why defend it at all? Why not say that congress spoke for the people by approving it, that this is
an old conversation and if we missed it, too bad. He didn't say that because it wasn't! And, Snowden was supposed to report a multi-agency-wide
violation of constitutional rights to his supervisor?!? GMAFB
And if this is all spy-theater to keep me distracted for the real problems, like Fukushima and climate change, then they are doing an Oscar winning
job and I'm an idiot with cancer starving to death in my ark.
