Obama plans to give a speech about the NSA on January 17th, the anniversary of Eisenhower’s warning about the “Military industrial complex” and a “scientific-technological elite”
WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) — On January 17th, 1961 president Eisenhower gave a famous speech before leaving office, in which he warned of the “Military industrial complex” and a “scientific-technological elite”.
Now, exactly 53 years later, Obama is planning to give a highly anticipated and long overdue response to the NSA scandal of the past year, on the same date, January 17th.
As with most speeches that politicians make, Obama’s response to the scandal will be filled with lies and empty promises, but the fact that this lands on the same date as Eisenhower’s warning gives us a good opportunity to point out that the NSA scandal proves that this warning did in fact come true.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the warning, the full speech can be viewed in the video above, and the most revealing portion is quoted below:
