Former NSA boss Michael Hayden is known for running the shady American spying bureaucracy for a decade. He recently responded to a question about Snowden by comparing privacy activists to al Qaida terrorists.
Hayden wonders what would the groups like nihilists, anarchists, activists, Lulzsec, Anonymous and so on do if the US government catches Edward Snowden and brings him back to the country for trial. He suggests that they might want to come after the American government, but admits that the military networks stuff is about the hardest target in the US. If activists fail to harm military networks, then who will they go after?
Michael Hayden was in charge of the NSA when the outfit launched its unprecedented surveillance operation, and also ran the CIA. Hayden admitted that the situation he outlined was speculation and imaginative, but it is a known fact that Edward Snowden has created quite a stir among people who are very committed to transparency and global transparency.
The UK privacy rights group responded that considering the testimony given under oath about what the NSA was doing, one can understand that Michael Hayden may be just nervous, because Edward Snowden’s disclosures blow apart assurances that there was no surveillance of US citizens.
The privacy outfits suggest that if Hayden had spent more time on attempts to recruit people he is currently traducing and comparing to terrorists, one wouldn’t have managed to walk out of a high-security facility with loads of sensitive data on a USB stick. Indeed, the Americans now believe that security measures have gone too far, and not many thinks that more surveillance is needed.

|damn....this guy looks like a perv for some reason. one of those who hangs around kindergarten playground.|
|Why cant these guys just be honest?|
|lies and mis-direction are the prerogative of the NSA why change the habit of a lifetime as long as culpable deniability remain and now that they have been caught in a whopper of a lie they should play nice,fess up and pull the plug on messing with other countries systems lest they get more of the same from their own citizens since it is they and they alone who have shown the world what a bunch of underhand rectums the NSA and the American govt are.Thanks to Snowden,Bill Binney , Manning and wikileaks not all the lies have worked and gone unchallenged.|

|What is the source article for this?|
|Yeah thank god that some people have the guts to stand up for what is right,for gods sakes the american government even spy on their allies you just cant trust them and our government is no better.Dont you just hate politicians.|
|In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.|
Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.I rest my case.
|Hayden should be more concerned about facing a firing squad after he's convicted of levying war on the U.S.A. (a.k.a. treason).|
Snowden shouldn't even be part of the discussion. Instead of asking him about Snowden they should ask him what he plans to do about the treason charges that could end his life and that of anyone participating in and advocating this "luke-warm" war on the public(inlucing Nancy Pelosi, Diane Feinstein, Lindsey Graham, Bush, Obama etc.).
|Who`s gonna bring these treason charges against him?, the goverment?. I think you`ll find they probably told him to do it YoMammaSoFat|
