8-3-10: Top Secret Anne Arundel County

August 2, 2010 at 6:37 pm 2 comments

The Washington Post‘s Top Secret America series looked at the explosive growth of the federal government’s national security infrastructure, much of it in the Maryland suburbs.

Bob Leib is Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold’s special assistant for Base Realignment and Closure — which means he’s basically the county’s liaison to the National Security Agency. Sheilah asks Bob Leib what it’s like when your county’s second-largest employer is one of the most secretive organizations in the world.

Make sure to tune in next week when we revisit the NSA with James Bamford, author of The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America. He’s been reporting on the agency for three decades, and he’s got an unnerving tale of the 9/11 plotters making last minute preparations in Laurel, right under the NSA’s nose.

    Wonderful. A colossal government bureaucracy producing zero economic value importing thousands of out-of-staters to further destroy the Chesapeake Bay.
