Booz Allen Promptly Condemns Snowden's "Grave Ethical Violation"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Well that didn't take long. It took precisely two hours for damage control #1 to hit following the PRISM-blower's self-revelation. Edward Snowden's current employer - Booz Allen - has very rapidly issued a statement distancing itself from this lone rogue data assassin.

Booz Allen can confirm that Edward Snowden, 29, has been an employee of our firm for less than 3 months, assigned to a team in Hawaii.

 

News reports that this individual has claimed to have leaked classified information are shocking, and if accurate, this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct and core values of our firm.

 

We will work closely with our clients and authorities in their investigation of this matter.

"All of us will confront ethical challenges; each of us must determine how to respond. At Booz Allen, you are expected to make those choices consistently with our Core Values. And, as a firm, we have many resources available to help you do so."

"...we have many resources available to help you do so." Of course you do BA. I am sure your resources are very persuasive.

From 2007:

McConnell is a former director of the National Security Agency and the current director of defense programs at Booz Allen — one of the nation’s biggest defense and intelligence contractors. Under his watch, Booz Allen has been deeply involved in some of the most controversial counterterrorism programs run by the Bush administration, including the infamous Total Information Awareness data-mining scheme. McConnell has also been a leading figure in outsourcing U.S. intelligence operations to private industry.

So Carlyle owns Booz, who runs the NSa, who is more powerful than J Edgar Hoover ever was and has a file on every congressman's takes; who run US foreign policy, who retire and buy shares in Carlyle.

Its called a perpetual circle, circular power and circular wealth on compound interest rates; only us suckers we pick up the tab.

And its global and they are hoping to open up Africa and then Mongolia. 

And this guy Snowden has put a spike in that circle that covers seven continents.

Last semester I failed a couple of young men. One of them showed me a document saying his father was ill. I told him that I would be checking up on that and wanted a copy of the document (never mind the failing performance stuff, I was amused to find out where this would go). I never got a copy. He then pulled me aside to tell me that he could not come to class because him and his friend were "out" as gay and they had received a poor reception so they avoided coming to class for fear of being ridiculed. Why didn't him and precious approach me before the very last day of class with this problem? Real gay people have real problems, that shit burns my ass.

I also had a girl say she missed her test because she peed on herself on the way to class. This is after she failed the class last semester after various relatives and friends were buried and she missed those tests as well.

Another was out most of the semester...wait for it... with an abortion. She was shocked that after that admission I did not let her turn in her extra credit papers past the deadline. Sad story though.

News reports that this individual has claimed to have leaked classified information are shocking, and if accurate, this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct and core values of our firm.

HA.HA.HA

As if the total usurption of our constitutional liberties wasn't shocking.

What are the "core values" of Booze Allen?

Guessing Booze Allen doesn't get audited by Obama's goons at the I.R.S.

I call for Booz to immediately release all phone calls to and from Eric Holder, Jamie Dimon, Loyd Blankfein and Janet Napolitano and for those records to be used in a court of law against them.

Perhaps a million citizens, messaging them to suggest they work to defend liberty rather than continue as an arm of the United Stasi of America would assist in helping Booz Allen discern what is ethical, right, and good.

Well, Snowden reported the wrongdoings, their "ethics violation" came about

when he made the mistake of believing they would be rectified, and when they

were not, took matters into his own capable hands.

I just saw a reporter ask a repubican and a democrap on the intelligence committee about it and they said the leaker should be arrested.

Not a word about if what he said is a lie or not.

He said, "as a contractor he could spy on anyone he wanted ".(he didn't need no stinking clearance).

"Being able to tap anyone...",  talk about having insider information. You could make a killing in the stock market, front run the world.

If I were DHS and the airlines, I wouldn't allow employees of NSA, CIA or Booz Allen fly as there are some pretty pissed off Patriots, who are faithful to the Constitution, some with military backgrounds, who may desire retribution, therefore Booze Allen, NSA and CIA persons are a danger when flying with innocent passengers.
