re: NSA recruiters.
Regarding the NSA recruiters…..thank you for calling them out.
Received news of your NSA-recruiters action from academic colleagues in Switzerland. In the German-speaking world the audio has gone viral. Not so in English? It would be interesting to ask why.
With deep gratitude from Berkeley, CA
@Ignacio Chapela i am from germany and i came across the story in the online edition of sueddeutsche.de a major daily newspaper.
Thank you very much. When following the reactions of European politicians on the NSA activities, in particular the German ones, I get the impression that everyone is fine with the NSA practices. I am not.
Best regards from Munich,
Excellent work! (NSA Recruiters)
Thanks for asking them out!
Greetings from Germany
Thank you so much for exposing the NSA for the liars they are. People, protect yourselves. Use Tor Browser to anonymise your internet connections whenever you can. Sign up for and use email services outside the US, Canada, EU, Australia and NZ. Encrypt your emails. This won’t stop the NSA but it will make their jobs harder.
Thank you for asking questions!
Ich schicke ihnen einen Zeitungsbericht aus Deutschland, einschließlich ihrer Aufzeichnung der NSA Rekrutierung. Er ist sehr interessant und ein brillanter
Gambit. Bitte weiter so. Wenn es geht in den anderen Universitäten in den Vereinigten Staaten. Gib ihnen nicht zu! …
Grüße aus Baden-Baden
P.S. von google-translated…sorry 😉
Just be careful of the UW Police and the UW Dean of Student’s Office.
Both bodies have very lkittle to do, and p0leny of time to hassle anyone they think is disruptive.
Keep up the good work!
Ive listened to what you’ve said during the NSA interview. You are unbelievably awesome and a spectacular person. Thank you so much for speaking up.
Loved the defense of Snowden et al. Clearly the smartest people in the room were not the ones working for the government.
Thank you for your bravery in facing down those NSA liars. I wish more people were like you.
As a city employee, I blew the whistle against Nashville, TN city government and police and had a ten year decline in my life. I was pulling out of it. I was an honors student. I was awarded the Gilman Scholarship and was studying at the University of Debrecen as an exchange student. I found my writing mentor and had teacher training and learned enough about linguistics to make a difference in my critical thinking. I came back to America. I got kicked down again when I legitimately complained about a state agency and university. I attempted to get an investigation started about my university, Middle TN State University, and the state’s Vocational Rehabilitation program for violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This lead to me being labelled a terrorist by a member of Governor Bill Haslam’s staff(strange, I know). I have since left the county and live in Budapest. Europe suits me better(not as stoopid!). Oddly enough, I live off of disability. But I’m a 50 year old disenfranchised and disabled college student. I have to go through endless complaint forms and the Education Department has been a dismal failure so far. Hiring a lawyer is out of the question. I’m off the map and have to pull up my bootstraps – AGAIN!!!
One of the architects of my firing was Richard McKinney. He is now CIO for the US Transportation Department. He used to be my boss. Another was Mayor Bill Purcell. He has a string of scandals in Nashville. Now he teaches at the Kennedy School of Government.
In other words, it’s worse than you think.
Thank you so much for posting. Good work!
Hearing you all leave NSA recruiters sputtering non-sense (“our work is apolitical”) was an excellent way to start the day. You guys are awesome.
re: The NSA Comes Recruiting.
regarding the NSA recruiters: M.T: thanks for this. – Here’s my comment:
We Germans (and specially I am) are shocked by what the US Government does to us in private as well as spying on our companies and politicians. I mean, we knew already before that US was listening to our calls by tracing special words and I was not happy about that fact, but the US has reached an unbelievable level of totalitarian spying AND PROTOCOLLING on everybody 100%, including forcing all kinds of companies to let them access all private and behavioral data, such as Facebook, Apple, MS, Google, Telecom and ISPs. This is soooo totalitarian, that I cannot call US democratic anymore, even more I would like to compare it with Hitler’s Nazis, but on new technology (and I say that as a German, who should not throw a stone!) …But I have to confess that our own German government has not even done anything to prevent us from this. I accuse them guilty because of cooperation with the NSA.
Target can be … no, I want to rephrase that, target is everyone. This really makes me feel scared and feeling upset, but at the same time helpless. I give Snowden the biggest available medal of honor. –
My suggestion: PUT OBAMA AND THE NSA INTO PRISM … sorry into prison.
Again, thanks Madi
And both professions could also learn quite a lot from each other. As a fellow independent journalist moving into anthro history, I look forward to seeing more of your work and the struggles we have ahead. -mg
Thanks for exposing NSA
Keep up the good job!
@NSA: Allahu Akbar! doesn’t matter how smart you think you are you are destined to fail.
Way to go ripping the NSA a new one! Superb job. As a human being, I am proud of you and glad you are on this planet. Keep up the good work and never let down. You inspired the others who were there with you and you have since inspired many more. You likely made those souless NSA jerks have to think for once, maybe even look in the mirror. We are living in interesting times. Thank you!!!!!!!!!
Re: NSA recruiters get pwned. Thank you so much Madi! I am so greatful that there are people like you that are willing to call out these liars. Take care and keep up the good work!
