After Twelve Years And Four Months

Some former senior NSA officials wrote an open letter to President Obama. It's a very interesting read.

The sadder reality, Mr. President, is that NSA itself had enough information to prevent 9/11, but chose to sit on it rather than share it with the FBI or CIA. We know; we were there. We were witness to the many bureaucratic indignities that made NSA at least as culpable for pre-9/11 failures as are other U.S. intelligence agencies.

We prepared this Memorandum in an effort to ensure that you have a fuller picture as you grapple with what to do about NSA. What follows is just the tip of an iceberg of essential background information – much of it hidden until now – that goes to the core of serious issues now front and center.

What took them so long?

Drake also had his work schedule at the Apple Store, when he lost his NSA job for whistleblowing...
