Noted Historian Explains How NSA Is Creating A New Form of Government (02/18/2016)


We Americans have put "all our faith in the intelligence agencies," author and historian Lloyd Gardner warns Salon.

Gardner is a well known "dean" of the study of American foreign policy.

He says:

If we look at the history of, say, Glenn Greenwald and Snowden or Chelsea Manning, the first line of attack by journalists has been on their personality, on their supposed character, on their eccentricities, and not focused on what the debate is really about.
