Former NSA Boss: “My Advice Would Be To Take Everything You Think Snowden Has And Get It Out Yourself. It Would Certainly Be A Shock To The Agency. But Bad News Doesn’t Get Better With Age”

How the NSA Can Re-Claim the Political Narrative

The NSA has been behind the 8-ball ever since Snowden started his leaks.

In issuing fake denials every time a new leak comes out, the agency looks more and more dishonest and tone-deaf.

What’s the solution?

Get ahead of the story …

The New York Times reports:

Bobby R. Inman, who weathered his own turbulent period as N.S.A. director from 1977 to 1981, offers his hyper-secret former agency a radical suggestion for right now. “My advice would be to take everything you think Snowden has and get it out yourself,” he said. “It would certainly be a shock to the agency. But bad news doesn’t get better with age. The sooner they get it out and put it behind them, the faster they can begin to rebuild.”

Of course, that only works if the NSA isn’t engaged in blatantly illegal conduct …

    Or because the only possible reason for spying on every electronic communication that hundreds of millions of people are doing, is the same reason that the Stasi conducted Mass Surveillance – to suppress domestic political dissent.

    The REAL purpose of NSA Mass Surveillance is to undermine democracy in America & the West to promote the interests of large crony Corporations

    Which taken together with the catalog of all of the other civil rights abuses conducted during Obama’s term, tears down all the protections for ordinary people necessary for a democratic rather than despotic society.

    The catalog of civil rights abuses:-

    Like This……? The CIA is funding a scientific study funded by “the US intelligence community” which will run for 21 months at a cost of $630,000, with a final report due in 2014. The CIA backed scientists will study how weather patterns could be influenced and altered, and assess the potential impacts of geo-engineering attempts. New revelations made by the National Academy of Sciences marks the first time an intelligence agency has publicly funded such a study……

    That was the purpose of Snowden, to use information already revealed earlier by real whistleblowers to increase the credibility of 9/11 official story supporters Glenn Greenwald and Julian Assange.

    Blatantly illegal conduct…??? Like Tuesday “hit” meetings, where “Don” Obama and his consiglieres decide who to whack this week?

    I don’t think Snowden is a plant, though the slow trickle of release by the papers could be construed as conditioning society. It’s costing our tech sector too much money, for one. Too much disclosure, on top of that. I don’t think they would intentionally put out there that we’re spying on Merkel’s cell phone, among other things.

    As to getting out what they THINK Snowden has, they must know for sure, now if not sooner, at least since picking up Miranda. Plus they have the papers already self-censoring some of it. But who knows, Greenwald might milk this thing for years… what was it, ~50 years til full disclosure based on the rate of release?
