The supidity of intelligence

French version : "L'imbécillité de l'intelligence"

Le Monde has published an enlightening article on the Snowden case (Aymeric Janier, " target=”_blank”>Keith Alexander, le « pacha » de la NSA", Le Monde, July 15, 2013).

37,000 employees, a budget of about $ 10 billion, ultra-powerful computers, the ambition of "intercept everything about everything, everywhere" ... We guess in Alexander's behavior a bureaucratic delirium : who could refuse him budget and computation power after September 11 2001, which has spread this obsessive fear that is the victory of the terrorists ?
