To that end, NSA is pushing a threefold IT agenda: bring in new managers from outside the agency, answer critics who claim the agency trespasses on the data privacy of U.S. citizens and make use of new technology to analyze the data NSA gathers."

- Editorial: "Unauthorized Snooping," Washington Post, December 20, 2005: "President Bush, Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and Gen. Michael V. Hayden all strove to justify the program, under which the NSA has conducted electronic surveillance of hundreds of people domestically since Sept. 11 without warrants from the secret court that is supposed to oversee such snooping."
- Peter Baker and Charles Babington, "Bush Addresses Uproar Over Spying. 'This Is a Different Era, a Different War,' He Says as Some Lawmakers Seek Probe," Washington Post, December 20, 2005: "Air Force Gen. Michael V. Hayden, who was NSA director when the surveillance began and now serves as Bush's deputy director of national intelligence, said the secret-court process was intended for long-term surveillance of agents of an enemy power, not the current hunt for elusive terrorist cells. ... According to Hayden, most warrantless surveillance conducted under Bush's authorization lasts just days or weeks, and requires only the approval of a shift supervisor. Hayden said getting retroactive court approval is inefficient because it 'involves marshaling arguments' and 'looping paperwork around.'"
- Scott Shane, "At Security Agency, News of Surveillance Program Gives Reassurances a Hollow Ring," New York Times (CanadianEmbassy.org), December 22, 2005: "Testifying before a Senate committee last April, Gen. Michael V. Hayden, then head of the National Security Agency, emphasized how scrupulously the agency was protecting Americans from its electronic snooping." According to The New York Times, "It was one of General Hayden's favorite themes in public speeches and interviews: the agency's mammoth eavesdropping network was directed at foreigners, not Americans."
