Assange, Manning, Snowden are much like the self immolating monks we have seen in news coverage over the past decades.

Their belief system is more powerful than life itself.

People, this security apparatus has nothing to do with security from a man in a cave 10k miles away.

It has everything to do with $$$$$$$$$$ and government contracts issuing $$$$$$$$$.

Let's look at another revolving door. Just like Larry Summers from Goldman Sacks to government and back. Or John Corzine from Wall street to government and back. And many many many others.

Under Bill Clinton and Baby Boy Bush from 1992-2006. The head of the NSA was John Michael McConnell. After leaving the NSA in 2006, where did he go? Mr McConnell became a senior VP at..........Ready for this..........Booz Allen Hamilton.

HA! Surprised?

What did Dwight D Eisenhower warn the people? The military industrial complex is taking over the country. And they have.

Contracting jobs out to private firms that used
to be done inside government agencies is not only
much more costly but much more risky.

We should have learned our lesson in Iraq
where private contractors did everything but
go on patrol in Humvees. The cost was enormous
and the results were disastrous. But Halliburton and the rest made billions of dollars delivering
substandard services.

Hire private contractors to mop the floors,
but that's it.
