Former NSA Director Who Oversaw Spying Program Joins Amazon’s Board Of Directors

By John Vibes

In a new filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission this week, Amazon revealed that former NSA director Keith Alexander will be joining the company’s board of directors. Alexander was the controversial spokesperson for the NSA when the agency was facing scrutiny over Edward Snowden’s leaks, which revealed the details of a massive spy program.

During the scandal, Alexander discouraged the media from reporting on the details of the leaks, and talked about Snowden as if he was a war criminal.

“I think it’s wrong that that newspaper reporters have all these documents, the 50,000-whatever they have and are selling them and giving them out as if these — you know it just doesn’t make sense. We ought to come up with a way of stopping it. I don’t know how to do that. That’s more of the courts and the policymakers but, from my perspective, it’s wrong to allow this to go on,” Alexander said in an interview in 2013.

Snowden responded to Alexander’s new board seat by pointing out that Amazon Web Services is responsible for hosting a large number of websites, and now the person who oversaw the mass surveillance program is going to be getting access to all of it.

The federal courts just ruled that all this spying was UNLAWFUL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL when the government did it so now Jeff Bezos is going to do it instead.

Keith Alexander, the former National Security Agency director and head of U.S. Cyber Command who influenced development of post-9/11 security surveillance, has joined Amazon's board of directors.

The Seattle-based e-commerce giant's board appointed the retired Army general to its audit committee, according to a Wednesday SEC filing.

Alexander was appointed director of the NSA and chief of the Central Security Service in 2005; in 2010, he assumed the position of head of U.S. Cyber Command. He is also the co-CEO and president of cybersecurity firm IronNet Cybersecurity, which he founded in 2014.

"Think about how secure our nation has been since 9/11," he told The New Yorker in a 2014 interview. "We take great pride in it. It’s not because of me. It’s because of those people who are working, not just at NSA but in the rest of the intelligence community, the military, and law enforcement, all to keep this country safe."

Smart. Go where the money is. You didn't think they would let Bezos and his 100 billion dollars roll around loose on the deck did you?
