A series of monopoly-controls very closely approaches totalitarian lock-ups

  A series of monopoly-controls very closely approaches totalitarian lock-ups and leads that way.  For example, the monopoly-control of central banking, of media, of massive grabbing of peoples’ DNA information, and of surveillance–all are 1984-superstate stuff.

  Fear, paranoia, massive/unbounded surveillance–these run together and generate more of the same.                            -R, Mt. Shasta, CA

   New Poll on Snowden/Surveillance

7-10-13     A majority of U.S. registered voters consider Edward Snowden a whistle-blower, not a traitor, and a plurality says government anti-terrorism efforts have gone too far in restricting civil liberties, a poll released today shows.

Fifty-five percent said Snowden was a whistle-blower in leaking details about top-secret U.S. programs that collect telephone and Internet data, in the survey from Hamden, Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University. Thirty-four percent said he’s a traitor. Snowden, 30, worked for McLean, Virginia-based federal contractor Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp. (BAH)

The poll also showed that by 45 percent to 40 percent, respondents said the government goes too far in restricting civil liberties as part of the war on terrorism. That was a reversal from January 2010, when in a similar survey 63 percent said anti-terrorism activities didn’t go far enough to protect the U.S. from attacks, compared with 25 percent who disagreed.

“The massive swing in public opinion about civil liberties and governmental anti-terrorism efforts, and the public view that Edward Snowden is more whistle-blower than traitor, are the public reaction and apparent shock at the extent to which the government has gone in trying to prevent future terrorist incidents,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of Quinnipiac’s polling institute.   http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-07-10/snowden-seen-as-whistlebloweer-by-majority-in-new-poll.html

     Inside Booz Allen

The current of director of national intelligence (DNI), James Clapper, who issued a stinging attack on the intelligence leaks this weekend, is a former Booz Allen executive
The firm’s current vice-chairman, Mike McConnell, was DNI under the George W Bush administration. He worked for the Virginia-based company before taking the job, and returned to the firm after leaving it. The company website says McConnell is responsible for its “rapidly expanding cyber business”.

……………………………
From June 1993 to February 2007, Hathaway worked for consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton, focusing on information operations and long-range strategy and policy support business units.[2] Her work included evaluations of “new force options across the electromagnetic spectrum” and “design and development of novel techniques for mapping social, business, and process and infrastructure relationships.”[4]
Hathaway served as Senior Advisor to the Director of National Intelligence, Mike McConnell, and Cyber Coordination Executive. She chaired the National Cyber Study Group (NCSG). In her role at the NCSG, she contributed to the development of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative (CNCI).[5] Hathaway was appointed the Director of the Joint Interagency Cyber Task Force in January 2008.
Hathaway was named the Acting Senior Director for Cyberspace for the National Security and Homeland Security Councils on February 9, 2009, and placed in charge of a 60-day inter-agency review of the plan, programs, and activities underway throughout the government dedicated to cyber security.[6]   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melissa_Hathaway

The White House announced Monday that Barack Obama has instructed his national security advisors to begin a comprehensive 60-day review of federal cybersecurity initiatives as a prelude to developing an integrated strategy that will coordinate security efforts across government agencies, and between the public and private sectors. The effort will be led by Melissa Hathaway, previously a senior advisor to the Bush administration’s Director of National Intelligence, Michael McConnell. Upon completion of the review, Hathaway is reportedly in line for the new post of cybersecurity “czar” in the Obama White House.

Hathaway, a former consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton, played a lead role in developing the Bush administration’s Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative as chair of the interagency National Cyber Study Group. In previous published writing, she praised Bush-era cybersecurity efforts, but stressed the need to do far more to combat burgeoning threats to US data infrastructure. Her formal title during the current review will be Acting Senior Director for Cyberspace for the National Security and Homeland Security Councils.  http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=91406.10;wap2
