Evil and Incompetent: Not Mutually Exclusive

October 7, 2013

A lot of people are thinking about the NSA as omniscient evil geniuses, but I tend to thing they’re just a bunch of grifting contractors and fiefdom-defending bureaucrats and actually complete idiots who suck at their jobs.

When I say that, I definitely don’t mean that we shouldn’t be concerned about a lot of the evil things they’re doing — if anything, their excesses are more concerning from this perspective, and I think the last sentence of this article is dead wrong — but it’s worth keeping in mind when people get too hysterical about their capabilities. They have too much money and too many strings they can pull, but they basically suck, too.
