Michael Hayden, the former head of the National Security Agency (NSA) and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), said that he envisioned a grim future of boredom and alcoholism for fugitive American intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, now in Russia. The Washington Post quoted Hayden as saying in response to a question about Snowden at a discussion forum held in a church across from the White House earlier this week, “I suspect he will end up like most of the rest of the defectors who went to the old Soviet Union… isolated, bored, lonely, depressed, and most of them ended up alcoholics”. Hayden, now a principal at the Chertoff Group, a security consultancy co-founded by former US Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff, described Snowden as “a troubled young man… morally arrogant to a tremendous degree, but a troubled young man”. Lawyer Anatoly Kucherena, who helped to get temporary asylum status for Snowden, said that Snowden, a computer specialist and former NSA employee, currently resides anonymously in Russia, going for walks and travelling without being recognised. Earlier this summer, Snowden was the focus of international attention after he leaked classified information about widespread US government surveillance programmes to the media. He fled to Hong Kong, and, then, to Russia, where he received asylum in July after spending weeks in the transit zone of Sheremetyevo Airport.

Editor’s Afterword:

God, Snowden’s gotten their goat but good. This is “sour grapes” of the choicest vintage. Russian reports have it that Eddie’s moving freely and that he’s not bored or despondent… quite the contrary. Chertoff was a brutal and conscienceless consigliere for the Bush junta; he wrote the legal justification for torture and other such pleasantries in the so-called “War on Terror”. That’s the kind of person that Hayden works for… shitbirds of a feather flock together, y’ know, and “like does call unto like”. I’d say that if Hayden maligns you, it’s a compliment of the highest order. After all, he’s saying that Eddie’s not like him (or Chertoff)… and that’s a GOOD thing, kids. If the goodthinkers call you “disordered”, then, it probably means that you’re courageous and well-centred. Hayden’s a career spook, y’ gotta remember… he was the initiator of the lawless surveillance programme exposed by Snowden (that is, he DEFENDS government spying on the people). Methinks that the schmidiot was just “hoist by his own petard”… and he doesn’t realise it. It tells you about the intelligence level of Republicans (do note how Republicans defend torture, spying on ordinary folks, murder by drone, and kidnapping abroad)…

One last thing… as for “morally arrogant”, I don’t think that a former Langley operative has the high ground on that. After all, remember Ecumenical Patriarch Maximos Vaportzis (he was a SOCIALISToh, the humanity!)… Langley did topple him in a coup, after all…
