national security agency
What is a national Security Agency?
disclaimer: I am not Edward Snowden. YES, I am a contractor. I have not and will not give up critical information that might harm my way of life. I am NOT a fan of the Patriot Act for obvious reasons, but I have been to over a dozen countries, and I LOVE the USA (warts and ALL). I am not going to get all patriotic and shit and I will keep my half baked political views to myself. I will just say I am optimistic (which I am sure gives away some of my political leanings). I will just say there is NO sensitive material on this blog!! I do NOT have inside info on the workings of the NSA. All aggregated data is from public sources.
The NSA is probably the most powerful organization that has ever existed (2014). I am not even going to speculated about their budget (leaked by a certain someone in currently in Mother Russia) I will just say its a xxxxload.
The NSA is largest employer of mathematicians in the US.. that means that they hire the most mathematicians on planet Earth (which means the solar system-> galaxy-> known universe).
It begs the question why? Why do you need a classified number of mathematicians?
This will also enable us to keep U.S. communications secure and maintain the country’s ability to exploit new, advanced foreign communications systems.
I admire big visionaries. The fact that the NSA knows how important crypto is really says a lot.
Here is some declassified history of the NSA for your research:
I am not a fan of unchecked power and unregulated black budgets but I am a huge fan of the NSA. I know that is not popular but the NSA is incredible and I hope they keep pushing advanced mathematics and the next level.
**note: maybe one day the NSA will be international and do bigger research in advanced mathematics.**
