The NSA and its apologists can’t stop digging their own graves.

The latest example comes from former National Security Agency director Michael Hayden.

On Fox News Sunday Dec. 1, Mr. Hayden said, “This is catastrophic for the safety and security of the American nation, what this very narcissistic young man has done.”

He blathered on to say that the feds must pursue Snowden for a criminal prosecution and to do anything else would be tantamount to “negotiating with terrorists.”

Mr. Hayden is out of touch. He simply does not get it. To him, Snowden is a potential terrorist for promoting transparency. On the other hand, his former boss, George W. Bush, authorized tons of missiles to be dropped on innocent children, sending them to their untimely demise. For this, he’s a hero who protected national security. This is how the bizarre, diseased mind of an authoritarian works. Undoubtedly, Mr. Hayden would have stood with the British royalty against the founding fathers if that coward was alive in the late 18th century.

But what Mr. Hayden is too arrogant to realize is that his opinion is no longer relevant. He’s bought his own malarkey that somehow he and his counterparts have the divine right to lord over us, and that anyone who says otherwise is a heretic to be shunned (or worse) by the rest of society. It may have been that way after 9/11, when the public was whipped into a patriotic fervor, but those days are long gone and are never coming back. The federal government is now about as popular as a root canal, and only becoming more hated as whistle blowers like Snowden shine more light on its misdeeds.

The power has been ripped away from you and your crooked buddies, Mr. Hayden. You do not hold the cards anymore. Snowden and Greenwald know your dirty little secrets, and there is nothing you can do about it. A brilliant young hero who you so pathetically describe as a ‘narcissist’ has exposed your boss and his successor as lying, treasonous enemies of the Republic. Now the public knows exactly what you and your cronies are. The mask has been ripped off. The public now knows that your operation doesn’t and was never about keeping Americans safe from terror. They now know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you are a criminal who has no regard for the Constitution or the rule of law.

That is why you have to go on Fox News and try and spew your propaganda. It is all you know, and usually that would work. However, the American people have gotten wise to your scam. They are now getting their information from alternative media such as the Tenth Amendment Center. They are seeing their freedoms erode, their pocketbooks empty and their country fall to pieces and they rightfully blame you, Mr. Hayden. They know that it is YOU personally who is at fault. Spew all the propaganda you want, it is not going to change anyone’s mind one bit. The era of rampant criminality tolerated from the federal government is coming to a crashing halt.

In the mean time, feel free to help out Ed Snowden make complete fools of the individuals like Hayden responsible for the fall of the American Republic. Lets rub some salt in the wound of these bums. Now is not the time to let up. Lets make sure that our hero did not make his sacrifice in vain. Support with our effort to nullify the illegal snoopers today!
