<> Subject: Re: [Fwd: NSA tapping
undersea fibers?] Send reply to:

Last evening at a session of four former Directors of Central
Intelligence (Deutch, Woolsey, Webster and Turner), the
WSJ report on NSA tapping and its alleged going deaf came

Deutch and Woolsey said that while NSA may have a few
problems at the moment those will be overcome with
sufficient funding which must be provided.

Deutch said the French had the same apprehension about
new technology when telegraph began to spread and
threatened the spooks' thriving letter opening program. That
anxiety soon disappeared when it was learned that spying on
telegraphy was even easier than on paper despite the
increase in traffic.

Deutch surmised that NSA would go on to greater successes
against latest technology, again with sufficient funding.
Unsaid was whether the spooks welcomed the new
technology and its enhanced spyability over legacy systems.

And, to be sure, that alarm about "going deaf" was the SOS.

That cliche is becoming as common as "cyber Pearl Harbor,"
though not as often shrieked as cutting-edge lipflap about
"domestic terrorism" and "weapons of mass destruction."
These latter two were much mawed by Deutch and Woolsey
at the session, suggesting that foreign enemies were nothing
compared to the homeland's.

Undersea cables are of interest, from this viewpoint, only to
spy on one's own.
