Being used to sell the Russian hacking story by pretending to leak NSA information.
So badly staged. I am embarrassed for the morons who put this together. This is what happened to these branches when they failed to recruit people like me. They had to hire the next guys down the list ... actually, they probably hired the guys a couple hundred names down from the top of the list, which was almost certainly me. I guarantee you they had only a handful of 4-sigmas on that list, I was one of them and I wanted nothing to do with them. The problem with recruiting for evil is that people bright enough to be good minions might be bright enough to realize they don't want to serve evil causes. This is how they end up with clowns like Anderson Cooper. They have to staff from the list of also-rans and honorable mentions.
