NSA Chief is Frustrated By Journalism

John Glaser, October 28, 2013

NSA chief General Keith Alexander’s comments last week that he wants to “make it stop,” where “it” is the journalism resulting from Edward Snowden’s leaks, were widely reported and commented on. Here is the actual video clip of him saying it.

Alexander is very frustrated, it seems, that journalism is protected unequivocally by the First Amendment. The point is lost on him that this was precisely the point of the First Amendment: to frustrate and hamstring those in power.

  1. Welcome to a Constitutional Republic you pathetic General. Remember the oath you took? Or was that just a stupid fomality to you? I give you the one finger salute!

  2. Well, these "generals" will get what coming to them soon enough.

  3. It's okay, General. We'll get help for you. And while you're waiting, please allow me to read you your Miranda warning:

    You have the right to remain silent when questioned.

    Anything you say or do can and will be used against you in a court of law.

    You have the right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police and to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future.

    If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you before any questioning, if you wish.

    If you decide to answer any questions now, without an attorney present, you will still have the right to stop answering at any time until you talk to an attorney.

    Knowing and understanding your rights as I have explained them to you, are you willing to answer our questions without an attorney present?

    Yes, a very generous taxpayer funded pension, appearances in the MSM as “experts” on various issues and lucrative corporate board of directors and/or consultant positions as a reward for their services provided to those same corporations while they were still in the military.

    Note to the NSA: Not that there’s anything wrong with that!
