Heroic Ed was simply “doing his job,” according to the NSA in its latest effort to pooh-pooh the possibly knock-out blow its nemesis has dealt it. “One of the lessons learned from the investigations of the 9/11 Commission was that there was insufficient sharing of intelligence information. In order to facilitate such sharing, the NSA created a file sharing area on the Agency’s intranet site. NSA officials told NPR that all of the documents Snowden has leaked came from that sharing area. … Not only did Snowden have such access, but as a System Administrator it was part of his job to search through the shared area for documents which belonged in more restrictive areas and move them. … ‘
It’s kind of brilliant, if you’re him,’ an official said.” Yo, Bloodsucker: it’s kinda brilliant if you’re not him — and utterly courageous, too. Go, Ed! “‘His job was to do what he did. He wasn’t a ghost. He wasn’t that clever.’” Balderdash, you miserable little bureaucrat. “‘He did his job. He was observed [moving documents], but it was his job.’”
The State is ugly as sin; its only beauty is that it always contains the seeds of its own demise. All we have to do is find and exploit them.
So again I say, “Go, Ed! And all the other wannabee Eds out there!”12:32 pm on September 20, 2013 Email Becky Akers
