The NSA Tool So Secret It’s Advertised on Job Boards

Elias Groll, Foreign Policy:

The apparent irony of unabashedly advertising for analysts and technicians to run one of the country’s most closely guarded intelligence operations seems to have been entirely lost on the companies’ respective HR departments. The Raytheon listing, for example, includes a long list of NSA or other intelligence community programs, most of which have received scant attention: “PINWALE/UIS, XKEYSCORE ANCHORY/MAUI, MARINA/YACHTSHOP, PATHFINDER, BANYAN, CADENCE, CROSSBONES, FASCIA, MAINWAY, TUNINGFORK, TRICKLER, UTT.”
