News that the NSA has the whole planet under surveillance, snooping in our phone calls, email and online activity set off constitutional alarms. But here's another shock: the huge amount of tax money flowing through the Pentagon budget to the NSA and its private contractors!

We spy billions of dollars last year being paid to corporations like Edward Snowden's former employer Booz Allen Hamilton. Booz got a whopping 99% of its revenue from the federal government in fiscal 2013, supplying a powerful profit motive to trample on our 4th amendment right to be free from search and seizure without due process. Massive spending on “security and surveillance” since 9/11 has drained the Treasury while failing to prevent tragedies like the Boston marathon bombing. Help us tell Booz that spying on all Americans is unconstitutional and unacceptable by emailing the CEO and other employees of Booz Allen Hamilton.

How else could the $5.7 billion Booz got from U.S. taxpayers last year have been better spent? Read CODEPINK co-founder Medea Benjamin's great article on 10 ways to reduce the terror threat against Americans.

Push back against using U.S. tax dollars to fund the erosion of our privacy! Send the CEO and other employees of Booz Allen a strong message.

We pledge to continue spying budget secrets, and shining the light on spying contractors like Booz Allen.

Truthfully yours,
Alli, Amanda, Heidi, Kelleen, Janet, Jodie, Lisa, Medea, Nancy K, Nancy M, Natalie, Noor, Roqayah, Sergei, and Tighe

Thank you for sending a message to the CEO and Media Director at Booz Allen Hamilton, with a copy to the heads of the two congressional committees tasked with overseeing intelligence.
THANKS FOR POSTING, JL

Signed and noted. It is interesting isn't it? If one releases any of this information so dubiously gathered, one is a traitor and demonized. But to gather the information on Americans is a billion dollar business. Something just doesn't fit in that picture here in the land of the free and the home of the brave. And the spied upon like not country since the Soviet Union's heyday. Free? I'm thinking more and more that is quite a subjective idea, more pablum fed the masses to let us think we are when in truth we are nothing of the kind with our government watching our every move. You aren't paranoid if they really are out to get you, an old saw but perhaps never truer than right now.

Somehow the phrase "congressional committees ...overseeing intelligence." Lately I seem to have a difficult time finding much intelligence in anything congressional. Signed and noted with thanks.

Gene J. brings up the heart of the matter, and we are not a free country any longer. We would like to believe we are, but corporations, Wall Street, and the banks run the country. We may seem to be free in some ways, but Citizens United and the lackeys in Washington ensure who will call the tune. To nail it further, we may well have to live under the TPP. I feel our options are to give up, or to fight like hell, so if we go down the tubes, it won't without trying our best. Thanks J.L.

JLA, TY for this story. Noted and signed.
To make matters worse here is a video that exposes the tax dollars spent for NSA spying. Does 52 Billion sound scary to you and misuse of our tax dollars?
