Ballet may accompany the Chorale

The White House has just announced a new program intended to inform and assuage both the global and US public on the "noble" purposes of NSA surveillance.

This adjective "noble" was used recently by General Keith Alexander, Director of the National Security Agency (NSA), in his defense of the massive program. This program spies on just about everybody.

To be conducted by General Alexander himself, and named "The Heavenly Angels Chorale," the program will feature 100 voices drawn from the ranks of politicians and mainstream reporters.

Voices in the choir so far have been confirmed in support of massive NSA spying but "pursued only [emphasis in the news release underscored several times] in the interests of national security."

Some well-known members of the choir recruited thus far include Diane Feinstein, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, and Mike Rogers.

Distinguished bass specialists include Dick Cheney, Peter King, John Boehner, Saxby Chambliss, and Bill Nelson.

MSM representatives David Gregory and Andrew Sorkin are prominently featured as baritones.

There are also (as yet unconfirmed) reports Hillary Clinton is being sought to add a soprano-tessitura range for the higher registers.

Rehearsals to a limited audience so far have brought the comments "stunning" and "tears came to my eyes."

Some effects have been reportedly inspired by Beethoven's "Choral" Symphony No. 9, with these lines particularly salient:

Everlasting eyes upon us
Joy forever folded inward
Every evil thus recorded
Gladly as our spies do fly
From here to there
Across the sky!
