Amazon names ex-NSA chief Keith Alexander to its board
He ran the NSA during the Snowden-Obama era.
Alexander came under fire during his time as head of the agency after former NSA contractor Edward Snowden leaked secret documents in June 2013 revealed the depth of NSA spy programs’ collection of data on US citizens, world leaders and others around the world.
The disclosures led to backlash against the surveillance programs, as well as pressure on the tech industry to protect users’ data from government dragnets.
