Not only that, but the NSA --- since the Reagan Administration and 1988 --- falls under the jurisdiction of the DoD, the Pentagon, not exactly a beacon of honesty. The CorporateMedia has proven time and again, and most definitely over the past several weeks, that it is simply an official news outlet of the DoD: Fox, CNN, NPR, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, etc.
Gen. Zinni has appeared on both Fox and CNN, talking about ISIL (and I did agree with his remarks about them being murdering psychopaths, but so is Henry Kissinger), yet neither news station identified him as being on the board of a major defense contractor, BAE Systems.
Fran Townsend appeared on CNN, yet they never identified her as being a consultant to several defense contractors.
Wesley Clark appeared on NPR talking or rather, lying, about events in the Ukraine, and never once did they identify him as being on the board of BNK Petroleum, nor have they mentioned that Vice President Biden's son, Hunter Biden, is with Burisma Ukraine, which is doing the major amount of fracking there.
