Request to Caitlin Hayden for Full NSA Comments
Submitted to the White House, 10 February 2014, 16:15.
To: Caitlin Hayden, National Security Council:
Hayden has been quoted in a recently published book, "The Snowden Files:
The Inside Story of the World's Most Wanted Man," as responding to inquiries
from the Guardian newspaper concerning disclosure of classified NSA documents,
and quoted as well in a news report today, 10 February 2014, "The NSA's Secret
Role in the U.S. Assassination Program," by Jeremy Scahill and Glenn Greenwald,
concerning release of classified information about alleged NSA role in drone
strikes. It would be beneficial for the public to have access to Hayden's
full remarks in both these cases rather than snippets favoring the news outlets'
side. I would like to publish Hayden's full remarks on the public education
website, Cryptome.org, of which I am the administrator, which since 1996
has provided information on intelligence agencies. Thanks very much.
