Many Surprised By NSA Chief’s Convention Appearance

A conference of computer hackers at Caesar’s Palace might seem like an odd place for the head of the National Security Agency to be giving the keynote speech, but Army Gen. Keith Alexander appeared right at home addressing the annual Black Hat conference. The general spoke about the work of the NSA in preventing terrorist threats in the United States and elsewhere through telephone and internet communications analysis.

Many locals were surprised to learn about the general’s appearance. The conference attendees appeared receptive to having the head of the nation’s top electronic surveillance and intelligence agency address them.


  1. It's good to see Mr. Alexander. I've met him at an event in Cleveland this past couple of years. He's very kind.

  2. I think Gen Alexander should focus on more things than speeches right now. We're at war.

  3. I'm not impressed by anything with American national security.
