      But I bet many of the politicians now publicly defending the surveillance state have taken huge sums of money from them.

      •  To me there's two ways to look at the situation (5+ / 0-)

        1) it was just a random chance that Snowden worked at Booz Hamilton (compared to any of the other companies in the same sector) - I doubt that any of them had a better ability to weed him out in advance if he had opted to go work for them.

        OR

        2) he was specifically attracted to Booz H because they had the best/most/juiciest secrets - thus, if the new contracts are diverted to a different company, the next Snowden will just target that company instead.

        To me the identity of the company is small potatoes, the existence of the system at all is what the problem is.
