How did a high school drop-out and special forces failure become entrusted with the NSA’s biggest secrets?

 

 

 

 

How did a high school drop-out become entrusted with the government’s biggest secrets?

    Edward Snowden, 29, leaked details of PRISM, a National Security Agency program he says harvests personal data from internet

    He has fled to Hong Kong from Hawaii, where he worked as computer technician for government contractor on $200,000 a year salary

    Questions over how a man who failed to complete his high school education was entrusted with NSA’s top secrets and systems

Good question.

Like how did a lowly Lt. Col. named Oliver North get away with what he did? They get fast tracked.

“1987: Then U.S. Attorney General William French Smith blew the whistle on a fairly low ranking Marine officer by the name of Oliver North. According to Smith, Lt. Col. Oliver North directly helped draft a plan in 1984 to impose martial law in the United States in the event of an emergency. This secret plan would suspend the U.S. Constitution and turn over control of the government to the little known agency at that time: FEMA. This plan would appoint military commanders to run state and local governments. Implementation of this plan would have been triggered by violent and wise spread internal dissent, disagreement with government policy or national opposition to any U.S. military invasion abroad. Essentially, it amounted to a complete and total suspension of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

“Investigators who uncovered this plan believe that between 1983 – 1986, North’s office was the ‘central command center’ for this informal secret structure which involved more than the illegal sale of arms to Iran and illegal funding of the underground war in Nicaragua under President Ronald Reagan. “Lifers” in the military were shocked, saying at the time that no Lt. Colonel is ever given the kind of power North was apparently given within this secret structure.

 

 

So great was his authority, he could have the orbits of sophisticated satellites altered to follow Soviet ships around the world or launch high-flying spy aircraft on secret missions. Some even compared this whole operation as eerily similar to the one portrayed in the movie, Clear and Present Danger, starring Harrison Ford (1994).

“North wasn’t alone in this secret structure. Others included Reagan’s closest advisers: U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, CIA Director William Casey and National Security Adviser William Clark. Congressional investigators at the time were shocked by how far along this secret structure and planning had progressed. Arthur Liman, who was the chief counsel of the Senate’s Iran-Contra committee stated in a memo that Oliver North was at the center of what he called a “secret government within a government.” Prior to those hearings, Liman wrote that a policy decision made at the highest levels during the Iran Contra scandal “…reveals the whole secret government within a government, operated from the Executive Office Building by a lieutenant colonel with its own army, air force, diplomatic agents, intelligence operatives and appropriations capacity.”
