NSA's most important function? (John Rappoport)

War he thinks.

Is the NSA Blackmail Inc. for the military industrial complex?
By Jon Rappoport | June 28, 2013 | www.nomorefakenews.com

Every director of the NSA is a general or an admiral.

The NSA is organized under the US Dept. of Defense.

Imagine that you are a powerful player who straddles two worlds—the Dept. of Defense and the private sector where corporate defense-contractors live and flourish.

You’ve served many times in both arenas. Your name is Mr. Military Industrial Complex.

Your mission is war.

The reasons for war don’t matter. Reasons can be invented at the drop of a hat. You want endless armed conflict.

That’s how you make your money. That’s how you express your impulses. That’s your single obsession. That’s how you forward Empire.

Creation of ARPANET ~ origin of the Internet

Origin of the Internet goes back in time to 1955 ~ 1957.

International Geophysical Year, a year dedicated to gathering & political information about the upper atmosphere... thin air. President Eisenhower announced in 1955 plan to launch a small Earth orbiting satellite. The Kremlin in Russia announced that it hoped to do likewise. Planning in America focused on a sophisticated three stage rocket, but in Russia they took a more direct approach. Strapping four military rockets together, on 4 October 1957 the USSR launched Sputnik I (a 70 kg bleeping sphere the size of a medicine ball) into Earth orbit.

Sputnik launch, Russia (1957) Sputnik I (1957)

The effect in the United States was electrifying... One of the immediate reactions was the creation of the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) within the Ministry of Defense. Its mission was to apply state-of-the-art technology to US defense (DOD)... ARPA, in the DOD was also given interim control of the US satellite program until the creation of NASA in October 1958.

ARPA became the technological think-tank of the American defense effort, employing directly a couple of hundred top scientists and with a budget sufficient for sub-contracting research to other top American institutions. Although the advanced computing would come to dominate its work, the initial focus of ARPA's activities were on space, ballistic missiles and nuclear test monitoring. Even so, from the start ARPA was interested in communicating between its operational base and its sub-contractors, preferably through direct links between its various computers.

In 1962 ARPA opened a computer research program... the appointed cheif just published his first memorandum on the "Galactic Network" concept... a futuristic vision where computers would be networked together and would be accessible to everyone. ... sending information by breaking a message up into 'packages', sending them separately ... reassembling them at the other end. This would give more flexibility than opening one line and sending the information through that alone. For example, the system would not be reliant on a single routing and, if files were broken-up before transfer, it would be more difficult to eavesdrop... both useful security advantages. The inadequacy of the telephone network for running programs and transferring data was revealed in 1965 when, as an experiment, computers in Berkeley and MIT were linked over a low speed dial-up telephone-line to become the first "wide area network" (WAN) ever created.

Great article.

First Page in my opinion.

While America's situation seems complex, this greatly simplifies the problem.

Good article... "Digging up dirt to ensure war" should be...

the first line in the NSA's mission statement.

Noticed that Russ Tice quote

"this was in summer of 2004, one of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with a 40-something-year-old wannabe senator for Illinois. You wouldn’t happen to know where that guy lives right now would you? It’s a big white house in Washington, D.C. That’s who they went after, and that’s the president of the United States now.”

Makes me think whether they

Makes me think whether they have something on him........then i think, so what, i suspect his 2008 broken promises was a response to the growing popularity of another 2008 candidate

It's Obvious

I just hope the coming revelations from Glenn Greenwald make it much more obvious.
