Michael Hayden on Acela giving reporters disparaging quotes about admin. "Remember, just refer as former senior admin" #exNSAneedsadayjob— Tom Matzzie (@tommatzzie) October 24, 2013
On Acela: former NSA spy boss Michael Hayden just ended last of handful of interviews bashing admin.— Tom Matzzie (@tommatzzie) October 24, 2013
One irony: The little-seen WikiLeaks documentary "We Steal Secrets" features Hayden as a surprisingly contrite-sounding talking head. He claims that he "wanted to tell" Americans of various abuses of privacy, but, darn it, he could not do so without people who "did not have the right to know" such information finding out. So he's different on record and on background.
