Former NSA Chief Michael Hayden Criticized for Off-the-Record Interview

Washington, October 26 (RHC)-- The former head of the National Security Agency has been subjected to some unwanted eavesdropping of his own. Michael Hayden was riding a train from New York to Washington, D.C., on Thursday giving an off-the-record interview as an anonymous former official.

According to the website of Democracy Now, Hayden didn't realize he was sitting close to former director Tom Matzzie, who proceeded to live tweet his account of Hayden’s phone call. Mattzie says Hayden’s comments included harsh criticism of the Barack Obama administration, as well as bragging about the CIA’s rendition program under President George W. Bush.
