NSA to ditch 90% of sys admins

Head of the NSA, General Keith B. Alexander, announced that 90% of the system admin jobs at the NSA are to go, to help contain potential leaks. This gets very sppoky indeed, as the NSA are rushing headlong to a fully automated information gathering system, with almost no human input. Worryingly, this is going to give enormous power to a very select few. I wonder if Key has taken this into consideration over the GCSB bill, or perhaps as head of the GCSB, this is exactly the kind universal surveillance state he wants, mostly for his own ends.
