Oh my, oh my how cute and tragic. Michael Hayden spills to the news "off record" only he was overheard and tweeted. You can't make this stuff up!

Enjoy.



Oh, the things you hear on Amtrak's Acela service! Screaming kids, complaints about Wi-Fi and — oh yeah — a former director of the National Security Agency and the CIA spilling secrets to reporters.

We learn this from the Twitter feed of Tom Matzzie, former Washington director of MoveOn.org Political Action, who sat near retired Gen. Michael Hayden. Matzzie's tweets suggest that Hayden took calls from reporters digging into the ongoing NSA spy scandal and asking about President Barack Obama's BlackBerry and CIA secret prisons overseas.

I'm trying to visualize the 'karmic relief' in all this.

It would be nice if the guy would have mentioned some of the things Hayden said instead of just vague tweets. It sounds more like Matzzie is trying to "snitch" on Hayden (not that it would bother me too much if he was) rather than share the info he had gotten from him, if he actually was told anything worth reading.

I think that was the point. Hayden was "sharing secrets" "anonymously", and failed epically.

Whatever he was sharing he shared with the news anyway. Accept now its not so anonymous anymore.
