Snowden is a distraction.

Pay no attention to the constitution shredder behind the curtain.

Snowden derailed a train headed towards Camp Unicorn where we were all to get a hot meal and a shower.

...”If Trailblazer was a massive corporate boondoggle, ThinThread was the embodiment of the “skunk team” approach that had made the NSA the crown jewel of US intelligence. It cost less than $3 million, was small enough to be loaded onto a laptop, and included anonymization software that protected the privacy rights of US persons guaranteed in the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA).

And while Trailblazer employed hundreds of contractors, ThinThread was the work of less than a dozen NSA employees and a handful of contractors.”

This NSA probem didn’t happen overnight. It began when Gen Michael Hayden chose outside contractors and their spy project the TrailBlazer over the inside NSA project ThinThread. TrailBlazer cost billions and invaded our privacy. ThinThread was a project done by scientists inside the NSA, cost 3 million and didn’t invade our privacy. This is the time when the outside contractors not only entered the NSA zone but also started hiring outside people willy nilly - how many did they hire that were/are spies? The original inside NSA whistleblowers (one of which was involved in creating ThinThread), who were persecuted for years, were right.
