On January 23rd, General Michael Hayden spoke to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. It seems that the MSM hopes that his remarks go unnoticed because his points tend to make foolish these claims of â€œdomestic spyingâ€ that the left has been hurdling at president Bush since the probably illegal divulging of the program in the press.
General Hayden, principle deputy director of national intelligence and former director of the NSA, said some very important things in this talk. Things that should help clarify how we should all evaluate what has been going on with the NSA since before and after the attacks on 9/11. Hayden introduced some common sense into the mass of ill thought-out assumptions that have been coursing through the MSM.
