Edward Snowden worked for Booz Hamilton, a private company, and was assigned by his employer to work at the NSA.
The infamous Carlyle Group owns a majority stake in Booz Hamilton.
Carlyle manages global assets of roughly $170 billion. The companies it invests in employ 650,000 people.
Others have run down the important names connected to Carlyle, from George HW Bush to Frank Carlucci to James Clapper, James Baker, etc.
With Booz Hamilton, Carlyle, and NSA, we are in the house of the military-industrial-intelligence complex.
With a cursory glance at a search engine, you’ll also be able to make connections between Carlyle and Goldman Sachs.
This is a section of the spider web that operates nations and banks and wars and surveillance.
Enter Edward Snowden with his 20,000 or 58,000 or 1.2 million or 2 million documents. Enter Glenn Greenwald and several other reporters. At the rate the documents are being released, it may be several hundred years before people see them all.
Snowden states his objective has nothing to do with derailing legitimate anti-terrorism operations. He wants to let the public know they are an ongoing target of illegal NSA surveillance.
The front men for the spiders keep pounding away on “the traitorous Snowden” who has endangered the war on terror.
Who’s winning so far?
Have we seen any large reduction in NSA spying? Will we?
Or have the spiders decided it’s quite useful to let us know we’re being watched? It intensifies their power. It broadcasts the fact that, yes, everybody is a potential criminal.
Isn’t this precisely what’s necessary to enact new, more draconian rules limiting freedom?
And what about suggestions and threats to confiscate bank accounts; and recent mass shootings; and off-the-cuff pronouncements about how many people have mental disorders; and the militarization of local police forces; and over-the-top federal purchases of ammunition?
Aren’t these all propaganda signals that the American population is dangerous?
And what does the government do when confronted with danger?
It presses harder on the guilty to protect the innocent—except in this case, there are no innocents.
Invent the threat, stamp out the threat.
And make trillions of dollars in the process.
It’s a superior form of mind control when you can get millions of people to say, “Yes, good, spy on me, spy on everybody, we live in dangerous times, and of course I’ve done nothing wrong, I keep my eyes straight ahead and my mouth shut, I never disagree with official policy, so I’m fine, go after the bad people and keep me safe…”
