Dirk,
I think you have to be a merkin to join the NSA.

Significantly missing from the list are language specialists, needed to listen to all those Middle east (etc) phones. And I KNOW that NSA has too few, as do the US military as a hole ...

Hi stu,

"a wide variety of analysts"...if you check out the NSA site, you'll see that they are searching for lots of foreign langua analysts, specially Arab. If you're good in Russian, Arab or Chinese, no problem to find a job.
