by | Sep 13, 2011 | Interviews

James Bamford, author of The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America, discusses his article “Post-September 11, NSA ‘enemies’ include us” at Politico.com; the continuing debate on “why they hate us,” exemplified by the Ron Paul/Rick Santorum debate; how the US took Osama bin Laden’s bait by rushing into the Afghan quagmire and bleeding the empire dry; and how digital communications have expanded NSA capabilities exponentially in the last few decades while protections against abuse have been gutted by the Bush and Obama administrations.
