    Greenwald broken here? To me the real story is that this job was privatized to Booz Allen at a cost of (just for his salary alone) of $200,000 a year. Meaning that they probably pay Booz Allen another $100,000 grand just for HIM alone! THAT is the real story here!

      today that said he only made $122k, so he can't even tell the truth.

      I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

      for Booz Allen than for the federales. They’re in the game for well over $6 billion, and are themselves an ultimately expendable (though expensive) piece of the Carlyle Group (with assets in excess of $17 billion.)

      The revolving door (a cliche that gags me at this point — I have a filthy, far more accurate, metaphor in mind) between Booz Allen and the NSA/CIA/JSOC/FBI clot has been spinning for ages. Most recently, with high-profile ueber patriots like Woolsey, Clapper, McConnell & Hathaway — CIA, NSA, NSA, NSA, respectively — all Booz Allen executives before and/or after governmental service.

      In the words of career guy at Booz Allen I’ve known for forty+ years who wrote in an email to his colleagues after the 2008 election: “Don’t worry. No matter who the President is, we still run things.” He claimed this cheered everybody up quite a bit.

      no two people are not on fire.
