NSA — tone deaf or just a big middle finger? [Darleen Click]

“Ready for launch? An Atlas 5 will blast off at just past 11PM, PST carrying an classified NRO payload (also cubesats),” tweeted the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, including a pic of the logo for the satellite: a cartoon octopus wrapping its arms around the world, emblazoned, “Nothing is beyond our reach.” It’s maybe a little bit tone-deaf given the current controversy about just how much is within the reach of the NSA and other intel agencies. Or maybe it’s an attempt to embrace its new image.
In light of the fact that the Obama administration is on a full-court press to ‘manage’ everyone’s life (for our own good of course), what has the NSA to fear? They are just fulfilling King Barry’s mission statement.
