NSA Seeking A 'Civil Liberties And Privacy Officer'

Anyone looking for a job? I hear the NSA is hiring. wink

The US National Security Agency has posted an ad for a "Civil Liberties & Privacy Officer," offering critics of the NSA a well-nigh irresistible chance to play the time-honored game of reading between the lines of a job listing. Some of the potentially more ironic phrases:

  • "The candidate "rapidly adapts to...unexpected obstacles,"

  • "deals effectively with pressure; remains optimistic and persistent, even under adversity,"

  • "complies with established control systems and rules," and

  • "perceives organizational...reality and acts accordingly."
