Baginski: “9/11 is a gift to NSA. … We are going to get all the money we want”

The new book Watchdogs Didn’t Bark by John Duffy and Ray Nowosielski, reports that former NSA executive and whistleblower Thomas Drake said that former NSA Signals Intelligence Director (#3 at NSA) Maureen Baginski told a group of more than 50 staff just weeks after the 9/11 attacks, the worst intelligence failure in US history since Pearl Harbor, leaving almost 3000 dead: “You have to understand, 9/11 is a gift to NSA. … We are going to get all the money we want” (112–113).

Had to write an article around this mind-blowing statement by Baginski. She doesn’t look like a monster in her pic. Props to Jon Gold for getting the quote in 2014. Not sure if Drake had said it publicly before – post here if you know. William Binney repeats it, but has said he heard about it from Drake.
