    Nobody Ever Mentions That Edward Snowden actually worked for The Carlyle Group:

    Edward Snowden did not work for the NSA (at the time), but worked for a management consulting and "holding" multinational corporation Booz Allen Hamilton which is owned by multinational private equity, alternative asset management and financial services, and leveraged buyout corporation The Carlyle Group.

    My question becomes, when you look through the list of significant employees and advisers of both Carlyle (read George W. Bush & friends) & Booz Allen Hamilton, not what the NSA is doing with all this Electronic Intelligence Surveillance private and personal 4th Amendment violations of unreasonable search and seizure of information without a warrant of probable cause (supported by Oath and particularly describing the place or person or things to be surveilled), but what are impossible to supervise properly by the NSA itself subcontracted privatized and outsourced multinational corporations and all their subsidiaries doing with all this information (call it the collateral damage of stolen "market research," if we call it nothing else) which imparts a huge advantage over their subsidiaries' competitors in both government, commercial and insider trading markets?

    I've long been a proponent, on real grounds of National Security, that all government agencies (including and especially the various branches of the military service) should be as self-sufficient as possible and their Top Secretaries or Administrators should be PROMOTED FROM WITHIN and absolutely not be fox guarding the hen-house Political Appointees. This is why we have this insidious hand in glove multinational corporation "government" abuses of The Public Trust now within all the Federal Agencies (read FDA & Big Pharma), and these awful human rights violations and Constitution End Runs of multinational Trade Agreements either already in effect or on the table.

    Significant employees and advisers of Booz Allen Hamilton:


    If written as an Ian Fleming Novel people would think Trade Organizations & GMO suppliers were James Bond Villains:



    I was involved as a (minor) whistle blower when I was stationed overseas which cost me a promotion from Staff Sergeant to Warrant Officer. Even at this low level of government service it wasn't so much that I or anybody was blowing the whistle on what we called fraud, waste and abuse (having a building built for one legitimate reason, but then using it for personal gain), but that exposing these abuses "might" give the Base Commander and his XO "Black Eyes" on their own records for allowing it to happen in the first place.

    It was more about Covering Their Own Asses than correcting the problem of a unit commander trying to make money off his troops or threatening them with bad (non-promotable) Fitness Reports which I felt I had to put a stop too. I can give you details another time. But I did at least get this guy stopped from being transferred to the Pentagon (which he already had orders for) to work with the USMC electronic appropriations logistics department giving him the connections to then get out of the service and become a corporate electronics appropriations lobbyist.
