Two NSA recruiters crash and burn

So a couple of experienced NSA employees went to the University of Wisconsin (a hot-bed of radicalism, from this guy to these guys). It was post-Snowden, and they didn’t bring their A-game. It went very very badly right…. Read an interview with one of the participants here.

Student: I have a question about the lifestyle you seem to be selling. It sounds more like a colonial expedition. You know, “the globe is our playground” were the words that you used, the phrasing that you used. You seem to be saying that you can do your work, you can analyze said documents for your so-called customers, but then you can go and get drunk and dress up and have fun without thinking of the repercussions that the information you’re analyzing has on the rest of the world.

I also want to know, what are the qualifications that one needs to become a whistleblower? Because that sounds like a much more interesting job.

JH: This is hilarious. Madiha, are they physically squirming at this point? Are they like shifting from foot to foot?

MT: They’re sort of just standing there a little bit slack and kind of staring off into the distance looking for… trying to figure out answers to these questions, and you can hear the pauses as they try to scramble for the responses.
