We were reminded today of the NSA’s disgusting “CryptoKids” website by a New York Times article article describing this naked attempt by the US Bill of Rights- destroying spy organization to propagandize the nation’s youth into believing in the NSA’s “mission”. So, we went to their website to check this thing out. What we found was not just that the NSA’s propaganda does in fact extend to brainwashing children into supporting domestic spy operations here in the US and foreign intelligence operations that in no way protect the rights of Americans, but in fact only defend the foreign investments of the US capitalist class.
The NSA’s “CryptoKids” website [WARNING: THIS LINK GOES TO AN NSA WEBSITE!] proved to be as repulsive as figured it would be: think of a Hanna-Barbera version of a “Hitler Youth” website – if such a thing could have existed in the ’30s and ’40s – and you get the basic picture.
What we weren’t prepared for – and what the Great Journalists (TM) of the New York Times didn’t see “fit to print” was the fact that the NSA is actively recruiting – and hiring – high school seniors to work for them while those students are still in high school through this “kids” website!
Not only that, but as we looked further into the various US Government agencies’ “Mass Murder for Kidz”, “Torture and Assassination for Kidz” and “Shredding the Bill of Rights for Kidz” websites, we found that the CIA also has a similar high school jobs program in which high school seniors are hired and paid during their senior year. This is quite a scandal, if we may say so ourselves.
The NSA’s work/study program for high school seniors is described on the NSA website here: “Opportunities for you” [WARNING: NSA WEBSITE]
In this website, the NSA specifically states that it is not only seeking math whiz-types for cryptological work, but is also seeking students enrolled in “Business or Technical Computer classes” as well as those studying trades in vocational high schools: “The Vo-Tech Program is designed for students who are enrolled in printing/graphic arts or manufacturing classes”.
And these are not just free classes being offered: these young spies are being offered serious money for whatever services they are providing the NSA during their senior year:
“When hired, employment is guaranteed from September-June of your senior year, with the possibility of an extension through August 31st. Your temporary, part-time employment category requires a Monday-Friday duty schedule of no more than 32 hours and no less than 20 hours per week […]
“You’ll enhance your educational requirements with on-the-job training and continued participation in work experience at school during your senior year.
“As a High School Work Study Program or Model Shop student you will earn a wage consistent with a GGD 01/01 job classification.
“As a Vo-Tech Program student you will earn a wage consistent with a WGA 01/01 job classification.” [If any of our readers knows what this job classification pays or means, let us know; we were unable to find it during a brief web search for the information today – IWPCHI]
What do these young students in the high schools DO for the NSA while they’re finishing their high school careers?
“Available High School Work Study Program Positions:
- Office Assistant – Type, file, maintain records, answer phones and operate business equipment such as word processors and personal computers
- Computer Aide – Operate our data processing equipment, often the most sophisticated equipment on the market
“Available Vo-Tech Positions:
- Printing/Graphic Arts – Use software to create agency brochures, pamphlets, etc.
- Manufacturing – Use industrial assembly machines
“Available Model Shop Positions:
Machining, sheet metal, fabrication, welding, woodworking, injection molding, and painting and plating”

Having been politically active for more than 30 years and having never heard of on-campus protests against NSA hiring, except in specific cases of “job fairs” on COLLEGE campuses, we were surprised to see this. Of course, we have participated in the anti-R.O.T.C. [Reserve Officer Training Corps – IWPCHI] demos at high schools and college campuses.
Well, if the NSA is doing this, and the New York Times is saying that the NSA isn’t the only disgusting excrescence of the US capitalist class running programs for kids, is it possible that “Murder, Inc.” [a.k.a.: Central Intelligence Agency – IWPCHI] has a kids’ program, too? So we went to check it out. And guess what? They do, and it is designed to appeal to kids as young as KINDERGARTEN age! In the US, you’re never too young to sell your soul to the capitalist class. And the CIA, too, hires high-school seniors as junior assassins-in-training. All they require is that “High school applicants must be age 18 by April 1st of their senior year to be eligible for employment”.
The CIA asks young students to consider the wisdom of telling their parents and other relatives about their interest in joining the CIA:
“Important Notice: Friends, family, individuals, or organizations may be interested to learn that you are an applicant for or an employee of the CIA. Their interest, however, may not be benign or in your best interest. You cannot control whom they would tell. We therefore ask you to exercise discretion and good judgment in disclosing your interest in a position with the Agency. You will receive further guidance on this topic as you proceed through your CIA employment processing.”
