College Students Call Out NSA Recruiters as Professional Liars

NSAStudents Question #NSA Recruiters Over Illegal Spying and Lies


When NSA recruiters went to the University of Wisconsin earlier this week to pitch language students on working for the agency, they got more than they bargained for.

The informed students turned the question-and-answer session into a hearing. On trial were the NSA’s lies, their legality, and how they define “adversary”.

The students recorded audio of the exchange on an iPhone proving that the language-analyst NSA recruiters were left tongue-tied.

“I’m surprised that for language analysts you’re incredibly imprecise with your language,” grad student Madiha Tahir charged when they failed to define what constitutes an adversary.

“What you’re selling us is untrue” she added. “We also know that the NSA took down brochures and fact sheets after the Snowden revelations because those fact sheets had severe inaccuracies and untruths in them — so how are we supposed to believe what you’re saying?”

Another student directly challenged the NSA’s morality for using the “globe as their playground” and then partying at the office with co-workers. She then challenges them to become whistleblowers because the truth will ultimately prevail.

    No one in the German government is shocked that the USA has been spying on Germans. Countries spying on countries, even on friends, is a “time honoured tradition”, given a wink, a nod and a nudge by all. The “shock” expressed to mollify the German public.

    This is some of the most refreshing audio I’ve heard in a long time. Well done UW students! There’s a hell of a lot more to be done with language than spying!
