Absolutely true.  That said, very few directors of the NSA have gone on
to become CEOs of telephone companies.  William P. Crowell served as DDO
and Deputy Director for the NSA up until he joined Cylink in '98.

He's hardly the only senior NSA type to join Cylink.  When you see that
kind of personnel crossover between the companies, it makes people a
little more nervous than they are about dealing with, say, IBM (which
has had a lot of NSA contacts, too).
