Students challenge NSA recruiters , You will enjoy this!


Thanks for the audio youtube, goldenequity

Activist Post: When NSA recruiters went to the University of Wisconsin earlier this week to pitch language students on working for the agency, they got more than they bargained for.

The informed students turned the question-and-answer session into a hearing. On trial were the NSA's lies, their legality, and how they define "adversary".

The students recorded audio of the exchange on an iPhone proving that the language-analyst NSA recruiters were left tongue-tied.

"I'm surprised that for language analysts you're incredibly imprecise with your language," grad student Madiha Tahir charged when they failed to define what constitutes an adversary.

"What you're selling us is untrue" she added. "We also know that the NSA took down brochures and fact sheets after the Snowden revelations because those fact sheets had severe inaccuracies and untruths in them -- so how are we supposed to believe what you're saying?"

Better Audio Quality!

I worked harder on this one. :)


That's awesome! I was just in

That's awesome! I was just in Bluffdale, UT, this morning at ye olde NSA data center. Kudos to these students.

WHERE, what city was this in, what college?

Does anybody know?

I have one observation of this very fine, impressive interview. All it came down to was the NSA people saying silently, "We know you're right, but, but, but we don't want to lose our FAT-PAYING government jobs! NO, no, no, we can't do that!"

So, they rationalize what they do & lie to themselves...

the students are brilliant

OMG - I just spit out my morning coffee when she asked,

"And I also want to know, what are the qualifications that one needs to become a Whistleblower? Because that sounds like a much more interesting job."

Wow. These students did not just rip

the entire NSA a new one, but all three branches of govt, and every two-faced, smiling tv news head with insufficient instinct for a straight answer. How embarrassing, for your Washington-insider pseudo-journalism career. Fire 'em all. Hire these kids!

The new spy game is here. You too can be a spy!

Published on Jul 1, 2013. 4 minute newsreel. The old spy game, as portrayed in Hollywood with moles and secret briefcase exchanges, is no more. It's been replaced by a new spy game led by the NSA, which the world is just now finding out about thanks to Edward Snowden's leaks. The latest leak covers a global surveillance system run out of the NSA targeting now just enemies of the United States, but allies as well. So what does this new spy game look like? And are there any limits to it? Political Commentator Sam Sacks breaks it down.

When one asks government agents

to precisely define terms communicated, things get vaguely interesting ...

P.S. I suggest embedding the audio clip of students questioning NSA recruiting agents in the OP:

Oh, you young cubs got our spy work all wrong. Tis thrilling!

Imagine getting paid to risk your life for a life like you have never known.

I suppose it's safe to say these particular students will not be hired by any of the "intelligence" agencies at any time soon, they think to much.

Made my day.

Absolutely amazing how the Gobt operatives try to dodge direct questions.

What a fun place to work where nobody can have a conversation of any depth.

funny how the NSA recruiters believe their own lies.

makes you wonder that these guys are running our national security.

Pure awesomeness!

Perhaps there's hope for the future.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

Well this will be the last open Q&A on campuses for a while

Now the NSA will tweet it's own questions in for open debate and answer via the same from a glass bubble.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

Gotta see this promotional video - tears in my eyes

Snowden must have watched this...

"I really like the travel opportunities and the sort of global focus."

Biggest understatement of the year!

Why record surreptitiously with Iphone?

When they could have just requested a copy of the recording of the FAQ session from the NSA via all the smartphones present.

Awesome and it gives me hope for true freedom

It's going to be increasingly difficult for the government to find people stupid enough to join them and even harder to keep people who are waking up
That is why the government is doomed

Especially problematic are the well educated people that they would need to further a global police state spy grid.

they wont be able to keep up with the private enterprise

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

What a perfect appetizer

for my dinner.
