Is anyone else disturbed by the fact that the war on terror is being fought by cartoon animals?

You have to wonder how many kids actually visit the NSA site.

Kind of like a recruitment site for the Nazi Youth.  Thank goodness the internet wasn't around then.  I especially like that the "How can I work for the NSA" link didn't work for me.  I wonder if that means I'm on some list somewhere. .. .  shocked

oh, i don't know.  my youngest  had decided what he wanted to do by age 9.  while we have other commissioned navy officers in our family, none were commissioned right out of school.  it was his goal to be the first in the family to do this.  in 2005 he graduated from college and was given his commission in the USN.  some kids do decide early what they want to do.

equating service to the country with serving Hitler is probably a bit of a stretch.

and that's all i have to say about that....  smiley

Oh no, I didn't mean that, just thought it was a bit creepy we're using cartoons to make the NSA appealing to kids.  Okay, so I shouldn't try to exaggerate before the second cup of coffee.
