Thanks for this post - very amusing and I will now be assigning all mundane ops that I run with shifty sounding code words. I appreciate it.

The really disturbing thing is all the program names and descriptions are completely believable.

Maybe NSA is a complete fake and all their systems don't really exist with all the announcements being made by a random text generator and all the money going into the pocket of a few people.

That would make a real conspiracy theory :)

Well, I'll be damned.

@AndyF :
" Maybe NSA is a complete fake and all their systems don't really exist with all the announcements being made by a random text generator and all the money going into the pocket of a few people."

Correct. It's all part of
project Schneiersquid ;=)

I initially found this funny. I ran generator several times, and came across this:

«Recently released NSA documents revealed the existence of EVILTRUMPET, a cluster of computers that deanonymizes identities of TOR users. Senator Dianne Feinstein assured the public that the program is only used to combat terrorism.»

It's not funny anymore. :-(

I had a tooth filling fall out the other day.
When I looked closely it was actually a microchip with a tiny stamp: "NSA".

DANG it!
