Richard Ledgett - National Security Agency

What happened here was, they fought back. So it kind of became a hand-to-hand combat thing. We'd remove their malware. They would deploy new malware, even though they knew we were in the system. They were just trying to get around us.

Andrew Napolitano

He "reported what the sources told me, reported it accurately and I do believe the substance of what they told me. Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn't use the NSA, he di[...]

Adam Schiff

I hope that we can put an end to this wild goose chase because what the president said was just patently false.

Rick Ledgett

Of course they wouldn't do it. It would be epically stupid.

Devin Nunes

That is very possible, and we don't have the answers to those questions yet. We had a deadline of Friday for the NSA, FBI and CIA to get us those names that were unmasked through the FISA system. We didn't get those names on Friday, and until we get[...]

Rand Paul

I spent nine and a half years as an undercover officer. I was the dude in the back alleys at 4 in the morning collecting intelligence to protect our homeland. … The men and the women in the CIA, they do their job regardless of who is in the White Ho[...]

Richard Ledgett - National Security Agency

It belies a complete lack of understanding of how the relationship works between the intel community agencies, it completely ignores the political reality of 'would the UK government agree to do that?'. It would be epically stupid.

Sean Spicer

Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he didn't use the Department of Justice - he used GCHQ.

Andrew Napolitano

Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command. He didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI, and he didn't use the Department of Justice.

Sean Spicer

He's able to get it and there's no American fingerprints on it. Three intelligence sources have informed Fox News that President Obama went outside the chain of command - he didn't use the NSA, he didn't use the CIA, he didn't use the FBI and he did[...]

Nathan White

The NSA leaks were shocking because they revealed mass surveillance that impacted all of us. We're not seeing that here – at least not yet.

Jason Healey

If the CIA has this many, we would expect the NSA to have several times more.

Joni Ernst

To make this speech shorter than Mike Flynn's time at the NSA.

Lee Cheol Woo

Our National Intelligence Service told me that North Korea's General Bureau of Espionage was responsible for the terrorism and the assassination of Kim Jong Nam but what Malaysian authorities discovered is that it was North Korea's National Security[...]

Donald J. Trump

America is going to start winning again, winning like never ever before. We're not going to let our country be taken advantage of anymore in any way, shape or form. General Keith Kellogg, who I have known for a long time, is very much in play for NS[...]

Donald J. Trump

"General Keith Kellogg, who I have known for a long time, is very much in play for NSA - as are three others,"

Donald J. Trump

"General Keith Kellogg, who I have known for a long time, is very much in play for NSA - as are three others."

Donald J. Trump

"General Keith Kellogg, who I have known for a long time, is very much in play for NSA – as are three others."

Donald J. Trump

The NSA and the FBI should not interfere in our politics. Information is being illegally given (to newspapers) by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?) Just like Russia.

Donald J. Trump

Information is being illegally given to the failing @nytimes & @washingtonpost by the intelligence community (NSA and FBI?). Just like Russia. [T]his Russian connection non-sense [sic] is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hilla[...]

Rod Rosenstein

For as long as two decades, Harold Martin flagrantly abused the trust placed in him by the government.

James Stavridis

I think the relationships between the president-elect and the current leadership of the CIA, the NSA and indeed the director of national intelligence are irreparably broken at this point. So let's get a new director of national intelligence, let's g[...]

James Clapper

I think there is an important distinction here between healthy skepticism which policymakers -- to include policymaker No. 1 -- should always have on intelligence, but I think there's a difference between skepticism and disparagement. You only need [...]

Desmond Ball

NSA headquarters at Fort Meade is 35 miles directly west; the large Navy communications station at Annapolis (used to communicate with nuclear submarines) is 20 miles west southwest; and the NSA's Propagation and Research Laboratory on Kent Island i[...]

Chris Malone

Ninety-seven percent of their revenue comes from government contracts. The NSA is their largest client, thought to be the most profitable spy agency in the world. Donald Trump will have a lot of leverage to extract concessions out of Booz Allen give[...]

Matthew Hickey

Those can be hard to generate.

Glenn Gerstell - National Security Agency

I don't think this is a Snowden-type situation.

Ron Wyden

The NSA has said that it only targets individuals...by searching for email addresses and similar identifiers. If that has changed, the executive branch has an obligation to notify the public.

Cindy Cohn - Electronic Frontier Foundation

We know they purchase vulnerabilities and don't tell the companies their systems are vulnerable.

Glenn Gerstell - National Security Agency

We are big supporters of encryption. Encryption is more of a law enforcement issue.

Mike Rogers

We do acknowledge that we arrested a contractor who had been employed at the NSA.

John Carlin

I'm sure the trusted professionals I work with across the community will take a hard look at anything they can learn from this case, whether it's about contractors or other issues to see whether they can better defend our systems from others who mig[...]

Ron Wyden

The FISA court has publically stated that tens of thousands of wholly domestic communications are caught up under 702 collection every year and that the potential number of Americans impacted is even larger than that. The NSA has said that it only t[...]

James Lewis

"The dumping is a tactic they've been developing for the last five years or so". "They try it, and if we don't respond they go a little further next time".

James Lewis

The dumping is a tactic they've been developing for the last five years or so. They try it, and if we don't respond they go a little further next time.

Josh Earnest

Mr. Snowden has been charged with serious crimes, and it's the policy of the administration that Mr. Snowden should return to the United States and face those charges. He, of course, will be afforded due process, and there are mechanisms in our crim[...]

Oliver Stone

He helped us with the film enormously but he didn't have any control. We did what we had to do, what we wanted to do. We checked the story with other people. We talked to as many people who would talk to us. We heard the NSA accounts. You know, not [...]

Heather Conley

In some ways this is a really good vehicle for anti-Americanism. In Germany, the most potent anti-U.S. vehicle was about the NSA, Snowden and privacy … and all that anger, and all that sentiment has gone on to TTIP.

Oliver Stone

Without Lindsay in his life, he doesn't have any friends. He's not close to sister, mother, father, he lives in a computer world, and that's his link to the rest of us.

Tom Fitton - Judicial Watch

These documents show that Hillary Clinton knew her BlackBerry wasn't secure. The FBI and prosecutors ought to be very interested in these new materials.

François Bonnet

It's not new but all the same – on this scale -we need to understand the National Security Agency and the CIA's errors which have undermined the image of the United States as a truly democratic country.

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

The French people have a right to know their elected government is subject to hostile surveillance.

Angela Merkel

Spying on friends, that's a no-go.

Thomas Oppermann

Under no circumstances is it justifiable that a world power or a country -especially not our friends, the United States – would recruit BND employees to spy on the work of the German parliamentary NSA investigation committee.

Jay Carney

We make clear what activity the NSA and … our intelligence community engages in, and the fact that they are bound by our laws and the oversight of three branches of government.

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

Mr. President, let's talk about EU-US relations. We've had the NSA scandal that created a lot of repercussions in Europe, we have the TTIP trade talks that are very complicated and there is a lot of resistance in Europe and the United States, so whe[...]

Carl Messineo

It's time to stop the NSA from seizing and searching my emails, my gmail, logging my telephone calls. I never signed up for this. The US citizenry does not want this. And I want the people who see the bus to know that there are millions of others t[...]

Keith Alexander - National Security Agency

That's never happened! In fact, there was this allegation last June that NSA was tapping into the servers of Yahoo or Google or our industry reps. It would be illegal for us to do that and so I don't know what the report is, but I can tell you factu[...]

Angela Merkel

Since we are talking about the NSA, I have also always told the American president: 'There is no way of spying amongst friends.

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

Today Barack Obama and Angela Merkel still need to rebuild trust and warmth. Whether issues like Ukraine and the NSA scandal can allow that, remains to be seen.

Edward Snowden

I am working to improve the NSA. I am still working for the National Security Agency right now. They are the only ones who don't realise it.

Jan Philipp Albrecht - European Parliament

I believe that we in the European Union bear a responsibility for this whistleblower. He should not be in the hands of a repressive dictator like Putin and we should not renounce the information that we can get there.

Edward Snowden

My intention is to ask the courts and people of Hong Kong to decide my fate. I have been given no reason to doubt your system.

Annette Heuser

What will happen in the future is we are going to see much more serious debate about the degree to which our intelligence services cooperate with US intelligence agencies. The question will be what role European and German intelligence services will[...]

Stefan Grobe - Euronews

The general feeling here is that the president struck the right balance between national security and the need for privacy.

Stephen Vladeck

The hardest thing for the President in this context is the extent to which he cannot satisfy both constituencies, the intelligence community on the one hand, civil liberties advocates and civil liberties organisations on the other.

Alexei Makarkin

The very presence of Snowden is of symbolic importance to Russia. Snowden has become a symbol of the struggle for freedom, and that's useful for Russia. Today, that's one of the strongest arguments (Russia) could put to the international community.

Ken Gude - Center for American Progress

The only way that can be avoided, is if the president issued a pardon for his activities, then he would never face the prospect of prosecution for the actions he was specifically pardoned for. But I think in the realm of reality, a presidential pard[...]

Julian Assange - WikiLeaks

There is no stopping the publishing process at this stage. Great care has been taken to make sure that Mr Snowden can't be pressured by any state to stop the publications process. The United States, by cancelling his passport has left him for the mo[...]

Barack Obama

We can and must be more transparent. To other around the world, I wanna make clear – once again – that America is not interested in spying on ordinary people. Our intelligence is focused above all on finding the information that is necessary to prot[...]

Edward Snowden

People who think I made a mistake in picking Hong Kong as a location misunderstand my intentions. I am not here to hide from justice; I am here to reveal criminality.

Ken Gude - Center for American Progress

This information could be valuable for him in the negotiations with the US. But generally, he is not in a strong negotiating position, and it is totally impossible that he will receive a general amnesty.

Edward Snowden

I have worked for the Central Intelligence Agency undercover, overseas. I have worked for the National Security Agency undercover, overseas… So when they say I'm a low-level systems administrator, that I don't know what I'm talking about, I'd say it[...]

Sergei Stanishev

It's not 10 years ago, but there is a progress since then and it was declared also by OLAF. There are common units of the prosecutor's office and many other institutions, including the national security agency, the ministry of interior, which are wo[...]
