(S) Want to Help Select SIGINT for the President? (repost)
FROM:
Chief, Cryptologic Services Group, CIA (F52)
Run Date: 12/08/2004

(S) Are you interested in being on the front line for selecting SIGINT to brief the President, his
Cabinet, and Intelligence Community officials? Working as NSA's representative in the DCI
Operations Center (where the CSG is located) is definitely interesting.
(S) Not long ago, I briefed the newly-appointed DCI on how the Intelligence Community's
CRITIC program works (following some excellent GRSOC* CRITIC reporting). During that
exchange of information, Mr. Goss asked me, "Does the President have this information?" After
assuring him that the President was informed, I thought to myself: "Wow...this is definitely work
supporting the very top of the government!"
(S) Our big responsibility here in the CSG is to support the Presidential briefers. We select the
SIGINT each day that meets their reporting thresholds for briefing their principals. We have an
intimate, constructive relationship with the briefers, and they make us proud each day by telling
us that SIGINT is often the best intelligence that is shown to the President -- at home or on the
road -- as well as to the Secretary of Defense, State, the National Security Advisor, and other
Cabinet-level officials. We also brief senior DCI officials, to include the A/DCI for Collection, the
National Intelligence Council Chairman, and officials from CIA's Office of Collection Strategies
and Analysis.
(U//FOUO) CIA also has some very interesting people that come through the Operations Center.
In just the last month, baseball star Cal Ripken Jr. and movie celebrity Robert DeNiro were both
here -- at our desk -- receiving an unclassified view of how the DCI directs Intelligence
Community operations.
(U) At the end of the day, however, the real benefit to being part of the CSG CIA is knowing
that you are on the intel front line -- and that's incredibly rewarding. Please review our current
vacancy announcement to learn more.
