NSA: An Open Letter to Ambassador Bolton

~~~~~~Bolton

Dear Ambassador Bolton: Try reasoning out your support for illegal activities. If NSA had immersed itself in protecting U.S. Citizens instead of spying on U.S. Citizens, things would have been much different. If NSA had aggressively ferreted out our enemies, 911 would not have happened. If the bureaucrats had not been asleep at the switch, the Khobar Towers Bombing would have been foiled, the USS Cole would not have been attacked, the Boston Bombing would have been stopped and North Korea would not be a Nuclear Power today. If NSA had not been obsessed with tapping your phone along with the phones of every member of Congress, every Federal Judge, every CEO, every Governor and every News Reporter, thousands of Americans would be alive today. Osama bin Laden would have been found and the whole Afghanistan War could have been avoided. Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Ambassador Chris Stevens would not have been hung out to die and be drug through the streets of Benghazi.

No, NSA is a dismal failure from every perspective. If NSA Analysts can read newspapers they know that Iranian books have been found discarded along the well worn path leading from the hole in the fence. They know that there are at least 20,000 illegal aliens in the U.S. from Terrorist Countries like Yemen, Somalia, Iran, Cuba, Sudan, Libya, Syria and North Korea. Oops, the Obama Administration has removed North Korea and Libya from their list of State Sponsors of Terrorism and Somalia and Yemen are not on their list. Are you beginning to detect a problem? Anyway, NSA has no idea where these terrorist are. NSA is also in the dark about the whereabouts of the 20,000 shoulder launched surface to air missiles missing from Libya or the Suitcase Nukes missing from the old USSR. Houston, we have a problem!

If NSA can spy on anybody anytime, anyplace, anywhere, meaning they can spy on all branches of United States Government, state and national.  They can also spy on corporate executives and learn about mergers and acquisitions long before anybody else.  They can know where shopping centers are planned or when dividends will be announced. With that information, the 17 intelligence agencies become the fourth branch of government more powerful than the other three branches combined.  Is that the America you want?  Is that what our Founding Fathers wanted?

When Ambassador Bolton and many others declare that illegal spying on them makes them feel safer, what are they thinking?  Our intelligence community can undermine our entire Judicial System. By Judge shopping, rouge Intelligence Agents can get permission to wiretap anybody including the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court or the Senate Majority Leader.  Does this not scare the daylights out of you?

Can anybody tell me that clever Intelligence Agents are not getting rich with all this information?  If they’re clever enough, they will get rich by leaking to relatives or friends.  Once given such power, do you believe the 17 Intelligence Agencies will EVER kill the goose that lays the golden eggs?

If you know everything about everybody, you can blackmail everybody!  If you believe the Holy Bible, as I do, you know that all have sinned and fallen short.  All means every member of Congress, every Judge, every member of the President’s Cabinet and even the President.

Oh, and about those 20 million illegal aliens, not strictly legal immigrants, undocumented U.S. Citizens or whatever you call them, what are they up to?

There are thousands of Hispanics in the United States legally on Work Visas or Student Visas or some other legal documents, God bless them. I am a 100% supporter of legal immigration and legal participants in the American Dream. NSA has no idea where the Illegal’s are or what they are up to: human trafficking, illegal drug distribution, criminal activity or what? Maybe that’s not their job but neither is spying on law abiding citizens! We all know that at least half of the illegal’s are receiving some form of welfare.

I am not aware of any of these activities taking place when I was an Intelligence Analyst at NSA in 1964 and 1965.  Before that I was an Analyst on the northern tip of Japan where I could see Russia from my dormitory window.  Wakkanai was probably the closest U.S. facility to Russia so we were on high alert following the assassination of President Kennedy.  I was sent outside the instillation to guard a transformer in four feet of snow.  I am proud of my service and thankful that I was not ordered to do anything illegal because I would have declined.  The government can take my money and my life but they can never take my integrity.

So what can I say to Ambassador John Bolton to convince him that trampling on the U.S. Constitution will NEVER make Americans safer? On the contrary, while the world is more dangerous than ever, Americans are more vulnerable than ever. Giving up freedom for security is a losing formula, always has been and always will be.

    If the NSA had focused on real threats, 110 Million Target customers would not have been hacked…That number is 1/3 of the population of the US. Why is that less important than say word searches for ‘burrito’ or “Occupy”?

  4. Ron Wallace Says:

    Illegal activities? If you want to criticize support for illegal activities, there are much bigger fish to fry in Washington.
    Why single out Bolton? I am no fan of NSA but, unless we plan to dismantle the thing, we need to make it work for us. How? Mandate performance and privacy by law, stop expansion, require full disclosure, random audits of their operations, make funding “subject to”. Congress can do that, but it will take a big push from the people (or candidates who run on that platform). Regulating NSA should be on every politician’s agenda. But why does Ambassador Bolton receive this criticism. He has no official capacity (but I wish he did), he is just commenting, as we are.

      Bolton was on national television day after day acting as a NSA apoligist. Congress has no idea what NSA is doing. Bachmann is on the Intelligence Committee and she too was all in for NSA for awhile. She has the clearance but she ONLY knows what NSA wants her to know. NSA & CIA are so large and consume so many tax dollars, not even the Directors know what is going on.

      As I have pointed out, these Intelligence Agencies while doing nothing FOR America, are spying on Congress, Judges, Corporate CEOs, Governors and ALL Law Abiding Citizens.

      I believe I have the obligation to expose those who think this somehow makes us safer.

      Bolton was an Ambassador, he’s not an expert on intelligence or Boeing 777’s.

    I totally agree with what you say here. Especially since Sept. 11th the government via the NSA has been far too happy to take away our freedom in the name of security. Most citizens don’t understand that is a bad trade since it only leads to enslavement. They also don’t understand that our government is incompetent when it comes to handling security issues, gathering intelligence (that even sounds funny), and coordinating agencies to use that information in any effective manner.

    This can’t all be blamed on the NSA when the Administrations and Congress they’ve had to work under have micromanaged them, and when more often their agency, as well as all military operations, are being “run” by social and broadcast media.

    When Ambassador Bolton offers his commentary he is giving his opinion based on his knowledge and experience, and from conversations with people he knows. I appreciate his views on foreign relations, especially in the Middle East, Israel, Russia and North Korea. I appreciate his strong stance on dealing with illegal immigrants and countries that are hostile to the US. It’s those ideas that I support, and with that basis he would be driven to push for changes to agencies like the NSA, CIA, FBI, Homeland Security so they actually did their jobs effectively and concentrated on the right objectives.

    No one knows everything, but Bolton has lots of experience in multiple areas based on his background and associations with people. I don’t see much of a personal agenda since he’s not running for office. But I will pay attention to what he says about the NSA and I never support anyone who wants to collect random info on American citizens, or anyone else. Thanks for the referral to this blog.
