The NSA is not part of the military. Note the name National Security Agency. Agency. It is an Executive Agency. This is so basic I can't believe you can't get it right. If you want to say Bush admin, or something like that that would be accurate. But this isn't a Military issue.

Jeff_F_F: I don't understand your comment. The article doesn't say this is a military issue other than to mention that the NSA listened in on conversations between American soldiers and their families. Was the fact that they called CIA Director Michael Hayden "General Hayden" what confused you? He is no longer an active General in the military, but it is customary to use that title even with retired generals.
So, you're right, it's not a military issue -- but the article never said it was. On the other hand, it still ticks me off.

Ain't you embarassed?
Don't you have no shame?

Oh what the hell...?
I like porn too!
