Admiral Michael Rogers, the relatively new head of the National Security Agency (NSA), made headlines last week for publicly downplaying the significance of the Edward Snowden leaks. Actually, he didn’t really downplay them — he just didn’t up-play them as much as his predecessor, General Keith Alexander, who called the leaks the greatest damage to our combined nations’ intelligence systems that we have ever suffered and is going around calling Snowden a Russian spy. In addition to serving as the face of public relations for the Defense Departments silent service, Rogers has taken on two formal roles that come bundled with the NSA director position: head of the Central Security Service, another arm of the US’ 17-tentacled intelligence apparatus, and commander of US Cyber Command, the hub of the military’s cyber efforts.
