Run Date: 12/15/2003

(U//FOUO) The response to the SID vacancy announcement for analytical support for U.S.
Olympics Fusion Center was overwhelming. There were over 300 applicants for the eight
available positions and the qualifications of each one of them was impressive. The selection team
wants to thank all those who expressed an interest in serving at the Olympics Fusion Center
next summer. With so many talented individuals to choose from, it was a Herculean task to
review resumes and make a final selection.
(U//FOUO) The final team members come from varied backgrounds with strong analytical and
reporting skills, TDY or PCS exposure working with other Intelligence Community and military
representatives, and experience in the counterterrorism production effort. The selectees
include:
(S17),
(S17),
(IA Intern),
(IA Intern),
(IA Intern),
(NSOC) ,
(S2I),
(S2E),
(S2I), and
(NCEUR).
(S//SI) Preparations and training for the Olympics continue across the extended NSA enterprise
as we bring together U.S. resources and those of our foreign SIGINT partners. Scenarios are
being drafted to support EUCOM and SOCOM exercises in March, as well as exercises with the
SIGINT Seniors nations. These foreign partners (i.e. Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France,
Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, the UK and the U.S.) will use the
SIGDASYS communications network to send scripted information to Athens in a communications
exercise during the above exercises. NSA will round out the exercise phase with another
communications exercise utilizing the resources of all 36 foreign partners.
(S) The entire U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) has come together in one team environment to
provide information to both U.S. Government and the Government of Greece (GOG) customers.
The co-location of IC analysts both at the U.S. Embassy Athens as well as at the Greek National
Intelligence Service greatly enhances information sharing across the IC and provides timely and
useful information to the front end. NSA will continue to be a major contributor to that joint IC
effort as we head for the finish line.
