NSA Director Pines for Dictatorship

“We Ought to Come Up with a Way of Stopping It”

Things would sure be a lot easier for NSA boss Keith Alexander if we had a dictatorship. Alexander said:

I think it’s wrong that that newspaper reporters have all these documents, the 50,000—whatever they have and are selling them and giving them out as if these—you know it just doesn’t make sense.

We ought to come up with a way of stopping it. I don’t know how to do that. That’s more of the courts and the policymakers but, from my perspective, it’s wrong. To allow this to go on is wrong.

(The quote starts at 21:06. But it’s worth watching this failed propaganda attempt from the beginning, to see the bizarre mix of bold-faced lies, pseudo-sincerity and New Age music.)

There’s a little thing called the “Constitution” … but Alexander doesn’t believe in it.

If you don’t count this as a veiled threat, please read this and this.

    Mark my words, the NSA is going to kill what’s left of the United States economy.

    That’s the real danger here.

    The single strongest industry that the United States has left, information technology, just got destroyed by the NSA spying. It’s a dead industry walking until the NSA is stopped.

    What foreign executive is going to buy an Iphone or use any software or any technology developed in the United States if it has plainly been already compromised for spying by a government that is out of control with power and has no ability to reign itself in?…

    Apple foreign sales – dead…

    IBM foreign sales – dead…

    Oracle, HP, Microsoft ? Dead, dead, dead.

    If you work for one of these companies or have any interest in the US economy you will be jumping all over this and getting this stopped pronto.

    Yes Snowden is a threat to the NSA, but the NSA is a threat to the rest of us.
