On the anniversary of 9/11, we are forced to consider the sad state of our so-called “intelligence” agencies, unable or unwilling to protect America. Much of the conservative commentary emphasizes the political nature of the FBI and the CIA and their determination to keep Donald J. Trump out of the White House and maintain the Obama/Biden Administration in power. But the National Security Agency (NSA) also bears watching.
The NSA is counting on Congress to reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), ostensibly to collect information about foreign threats.
Yet, the NSA is currently celebrating the activities of a Soviet spy, J. Robert Oppenheimer, the Manhattan Project scientist who worked on behalf of the Soviet Union and the development of its atom bomb project.
Indeed, America’s premier spy agency, the NSA has a display in its museum insisting that Oppenheimer was an innocent victim of anti-communist hysteria.
Consider that the National Cryptologic Museum is described by the spy agency as “NSA’s gateway to the public.”
What has happened to the NSA? It has gone woke.
