I WORKED AT THE NSA FOR 22+ YEARS - AMA

Inspired by all the AMAs I'm too elevated to look up
  1. I'm not allowed to "offer information," but I am allowed to answer questions!
  2. How did you end up working for the NSA? Was that your ultimate career goal or did another path take you to that choice?

  3. What's your opinion on Edward Snowden?

  4. Do you apply directly to work at the NSA or do you get recruited from other government careers?

  11. @cat_lyn as if. And ALL OF IT. This was a terrible idea.
  12. Haha because in the movies this kind of stuff is like superhero origin story!! Okay SORRY new question. Is the average American snooped on, or does the NSA need reasonable suspicion of ill intent before spying begins?

  13. @silverwolf634 why you ask "silver wolf"?
  14. Lol are you actually a troll? I'm trying to think of what would be interesting to know about the NSA but keep getting shut down... How about... "Did your desk have a window" that should be safe enough right. Or "does the NSA work only in offices or do you have field work too" ?
