What a disgrace! The confession that Alexander and the DoD think the "american" society is dumbed down to the degree that there is nobody in the families of those "best linguists, mathematicians, engineers, and computer scientists in the United States " who could dismantle the hollow slogans of the "talking points" to what they really are: Hollow slogans, used to bluff people who still think the U.S. is a free country and the destruction of privacy of harmless civilians all over the world including the U.S would serve to protect U.S. citizens. Amazing that they didn't add the "NSA Director Gen. Alexander and Cybersecurity " video to the "talking points" and made it a mandatory Christmas video for the families.

It speaks books that the issue appears under Netzwelt instead of under Politics. Seems that the leading german political (?) magazine Der Spiegel places the issue rather in the company of cute kittens, games, "social" networks, new useless gadgets and entertainment than where it belongs. It's about surveillance, human rights, the sovereignty of one of the worlds economics leading powers, about corruption, militarism, total control and fascism,
Look at the Logo and the term "Der Zeitgeist", gives me the chills.Germany for the US is the gate to Europe and with poodles like Gauck and Merkle ... oops, Merkel .... they have both feet in germany and one point five foot in the door to Europe.
Well, I guess there are not much people who really care, soccer championship is more important right now.
