FBI Director: NSA Leaks Educate Terrorists Who ‘Don’t Understand The Internet’ | Mediaite

Dan passes along this article. FBI Director Robert Mueller says that leaks like those given by Edward Snowden harms our nation’s security by educating the terrorists.

“We tend to think that people know and understand the internet around the world,” he continued. “But you have persons who want to undertake terrorist attacks who don’t have a full understanding of the internet. And, to the extent that you expose programs like this, we are educating them. We’re educating them about how the internet works actually worldwide.”

“They will be educated and find other ways to communicate and we will not pick up the communication that we want,” Mueller warned. “I would not underestimate the price to be paid by substantial disclosures.”

I would hope that he would assume our enemies fully understand all technologies that we do and then some. But it sounds like he is depending on an uneducated enemy to keep our country safe.

I don’t know about you but it is NSA’a and the other Federal agencies denouncement of Edward Snowden that is giving me pause to fear, not Snowden’s leaks.

Because people are lamenting about the lost art of conversation, for the next week I will converse with a stranger at least once a day.

Paula Deen, Just Shut Up!

You try to point out how far race relations have come since you were a child in the early 60s and then the person you are trying to relate this to points out that Paula Deen would like to recreate a Southern dinner party from the mid 1800s by using black wait staff dressed as slaves.

Well, it is Paula Deen.

UPDATE!: I found more on this story. USA Today is reporting this: In her deposition in a lawsuit Ms. Deen says, “Things have changed since the ’60s in the South. And my children and my brother object to that word being used in any cruel or mean behavior. As well as I do.”
