BTW, did everybody know that Booz Allen is owned by the Carlyle Group? And why is this huge private equity corporation involved in this whole Snowden deal? Snowden was a CIA employee contracted out to Booz Allen. How does that work? And Booz Allen is a "consulting" corporation specializing in (according to Wiki) ... strategic planning, human capital and learning, communications, operational improvement, information technology work, systems engineering, organizational change efforts, modeling and simulation, program management, assurance and resilience, and economic business analysis. Anybody know what that means? And, according to Wiki, 99% of Booz Allen's income comes from the federal government?

So I assume what we have now are corporate entities spying on U.S. citizens and supplying the U.S. government with that information for a fee? And in turn, CIA employees, like Snowdon, work in those corporations while drawing a six figure salary from the federal government? Or was Booz Allen signing Snowdon's paycheck? I guess it wouldn't matter, as all of Booz Allen's money comes from the government anyway. At least, as far as we know.

Meanwhile, the SCOTUS gives corporations personhood allowing them to control political campaigns? Funny, when you look at the corporate letterhead of the Carlyle Group, it's filled with cronies from the Bush1 and Clinton administrations. Anybody interested in the links between the Carlyle Group and Bush's Arbusto Energy?

Nothing to see here. Move along. Move along.
