With a strong technical background in surveillance and computers, Drake was also one of the top NSA executives, and was Senior Change Leader within the NSA. To get a sense of who Drake is, watch this recent PBS interview. Washington’s Blog asked Drake if America is drifting towards tyranny. WASHINGTON’S BLOG: Senator Frank Church – who chaired the famous “Church Committee” on the unlawful FBI Cointel program, and who chaired the Senate Foreign Relations Committee – said in 1975:“Th[e National Security Agency's] capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything: telephone conversations, telegrams, it doesn’t matter. There would be no place to hide.[If a dictator ever took over, the N.S.A.] could enable it to impose total tyranny, and there would be no way to fight back.“- See more at:
