Former Blackwater CEO: The NSA Is Turning America Into North Korea
Nov. 19, 2913
Erik Prince, founder of the private defense company Blackwater (then Xi, now Academi), says that the NSA is turning America into North Korea.
Prince, a one-time king of the mercenary world, told Eli Lake of the Daily Beast, “Whether it’s allowing the NSA to go way too far in what it intercepts of our personal data, to our government monitoring of everything domestically and spending way more than we should. I don’t know if I want to live in a country where lone wolf and random terror attacks are impossible ‘cause that country would look more like North Korea than America.”
Prince is certainly on to something.
