This article in Ars Technica is yet more evidence of the revolving door between powerful figures leaving the NSA (and all the government’s intelligence services) and heading straight to the private sector intelligence industry. Not only do high level figures leave the government service to use their expertise gained there to triple (and far more than triple) their wealth in the private sector, but the corporations they form, or go to work for, are then hired by the government as contractors to do the same work at a far greater cost to the taxpayer. And they get rich doing it. Keith Alexander has even patented software programming that he developed while director of the NSA.
