I was searching for something on my old website and found a page of notes that was a flashback for me. It included the name David Addington. You can read who he is on the Right Web website. That page mentioned a Frontline program that I think you’ll want to watch.
In the PBS story, they mention Maureen Baginski as being in a key position where the decision was made as to the design characteristics of the surveillance system.
NSA boss Maureen Baginski reportedly said “9/11 was a gift to the NSA”
Baginski worked for the NSA when the decision was made to allow the surveillance on Americans. She then left the NSA and went to work for the FBI.
At some point Baginski went to work for SERCO but apparently continued to do work for the FBI.
In her profile on Bloomberg, it looks like she has one foot outside the government – with a foreign firm (SERCO) and one foot inside the government – Pentagon.
Law Enforcement Intelligence – search for Baginski’s name. She consulted on this.
