Sometimes cognitive dissonance, which used to be called contradiction, rings a gong so loud it knocks you off your chair.
But if youâre an android in this marvelous world of synthetic reality, you get up, put a smile back on your face, and trudge onâŠ
Letâs see. NSA is the most awesome spying agency ever devised in this world. If you cross the street in Podunk, Anywhere, USA, to buy an ice cream soda, on a Tuesday afternoon in July, they know.
They know if you sit at the counter and drink that soda or take it and move to the only table in the store. They know if you lick the foam from the top of the glass with your tongue or pick the foam with your straw and then lick it.
They know if you keep the receipt for the soda or leave it on the counter.
They know whether youâre wearing shoes or sneakers. They know the brand of your underwear. They know your shaving cream, and precisely which container it came out of.
But this agency, with all its vast power and its dollarsâŠ
Canât track one of its own, a man who came to work every day, a man who made up a story about needing treatment in Hong Kong for epilepsy and then skipped the country.
Just canât find him.
Canât find him in Hong Kong, where he does a sit-down video interview with Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian. Canât find that âsafe houseâ or that âhotelâ where heâs staying.
No. Canât find him or spy on his communications while heâs in Hong Kong. Canât figure out heâs booked a flight to Russia. Canât intercept him at the airport before he leaves for Russia . Too difficult.
And this man, this employee, is walking around with four laptops that contain the keys to all the secret spying knowledge in the known cosmos.
Canât locate those laptops. Canât hack into them to see whatâs there. Canât access the laptops or the data. The most brilliant technical minds of this or any other generation can find a computer in Outer Mongolia in the middle of a blizzard, but these walking-around computers in Hong Kong are somehow beyond reach.
And before this man, Snowden, this employee, skipped Hawaii, he was able to access the layout of the entire US intelligence network. Yes. He was able to use a thumb drive.
He walked into work with a thumb drive, plugged in, and stoleâŠeverything. He stole enough to âtake down the entire US intelligence network in a single afternoon.â
Not only that, but anyone who worked at this super-agency as an analyst, as a systems-analyst supervisor, could have done the same thing. Could have stolen the keys to the kingdom.
This is why NSA geniuses with IQs over 180 have decided, now, in the midst of the Snowden affair, that they need to draft âtighter rules and proceduresâ for their employees. Right.
Now, a few pieces of internal of security they hadnât realized they needed before will be put in place.
This is, let me remind you, the most secretive spying agency in the world. The richest spying agency. The smartest spying agency.
But somehow, over the years, theyâd overlooked this corner of their own security. Theyâd left a door open, so that any one of their own analysts could steal everything.
Could take it all. Could just snatch it away and copy it and store it on a few laptops.
But now, yes now, having been made aware of this vulnerability, the agency will make corrections.
And reporters for elite US media donât find any of this hard to swallow.
A smart sixth-grader could see through this tower of fabricated baloney in a minute, but veteran grizzled reporters are clueless.
Last night, on Charley Rose, in an episode that left me breathless, a gaggle of pundits/newspeople warned that Ed Snowden, walking around with those four laptops, could be an easy target for Chinese spies or Russian spies who could get access to the data on those computers. The spies could just hack in.
But the NSA canât. No. The NSA canât find out what Snowden has. They can only speculate.
Itâs charades within charades.
This whole Snowden affair is an op. Itâs the kind of op that works because people are prepared to believe anything.
The tightest and strongest and richest and smartest spying agency in the world canât find its own employee. Itâs in the business of tracking, and it canât find him.
Itâs in the business of security, and it canât protect its own data from its employees.
If you believe that, I have timeshares to sell in the black hole in the center of the Milky Way.
In previous articles, Iâve made a case for Snowden being a CIA operative who still works for his former employer. He was handed a bunch of NSA data by the CIA. He didnât steal anything. The CIA wants to punch a hole in the NSA. Itâs called an internal turf war. Itâs been going on as long as those agencies have existed side by side.
For exampleâŠ.the money.
Wired Magazine, June 2013 issue. James Bamford, author of three books on the NSA, states:
“In April, as part of its 2014 budget request, the Pentagon [which rules the NSA] asked Congress for $4.7 billion for increased âcyberspace operations,â nearly $1 billion more than the 2013 allocation. At the same time, budgets for the CIA and other intelligence agencies were cut by almost the same amount, $4.4 billion. A portion of the money going toâŠ[NSA] will be used to create 13 cyberattack teams.â
That means spying money. Far more for NSA, far less for CIA.
But in this article, letâs stay focused on the fairy tales, which are the cover stories floated to the press, the public, the politicians.
We have reporters at the Washington Post and at The Guardian. We have Julian Assange, the head of Wikileaks. Theyâre all talking to Snowden. The NSA can spy on them. Right? Can listen to their calls and read their emails and hack into their notes. Just like people have been hacking into the work and home computers of Sharyl Attkisson, star CBS investigative reporter.
But the NSA canât do all this spying and then use it to find Snowden. Just canât manage it.
SoâŠeverybody in the world with a computer has passwords. The NSA can cut through them like a sword through hot butter. But Assange and the Post and Guardian and Snowden must have super-special passwords.
They got these passwords by sending a stamped self-addressed envelope, along with 25 cents, and a top from a cereal box, to The Lone Ranger. These passwords are charged with atomic clouds that obscure menâs minds so they cannot see or spy. Theyâre immortal and invulnerable.
The NSA can spy on anyone else in the world, but they canât get their foot in the door, when it comes to the Post, The Guardian, and Assange.
And if Snowden winds up in Ecuador, that too will become an insurmountable mystery.
“Nope, we donât know where he is. Heâs vanished. Ecuador has a Romulan shield surrounding it. The cloaking technology is too advanced.â
Perhaps you recall that, in the early days of this scandal, Snowden claimed he could spy on anyone in the US, including a federal judge or even the president, if he had their email addresses.
Uh-huh. But the combined talents of the NSA, now, canât spy on Snowden. I guess they just canât find his email address.
Snowden isnât the only savvy computer kid in the country. There must be a million people, at minimum, who can cook up email addresses that evade the reach of the NSA. Yes?
What we have here are contradictions piled on contradictions piled on lies.
And in the midst of this, a whole lot of people are saying, âDonât look too closely. Snowden is a hero and he exposed the NSA and thatâs a wonderful thing.â
And a whole lot of other people are saying, âSnowden is a traitor and he should be tried for treason or killed overseas. Thatâs all you need to know.â
The truth? Well, the truth, as they say, is the first casualty in war. But in the spying business, the truth was never there to begin with. Thatâs one of the requirements of the industry.
“Son, if you think youâve lied before, you havenât got a clue. Weâre going to tell you to do things thatâll make your head spin. Thatâs the game weâre in. Weâre going to make you tell lies in your sleep.â
And these are the people the public believes.
Itâs a beautiful thing. It really is. The fairy tales are made of sugar and the public, the press, and the people eat them. And then they ask for more.
