The NSA: National Security Agency

NSA stands for National Security Agency (and not No Such Agency, more of an “inside joke” because almost no one seems aware of their [obvious] existence). The NSA differs from the CIA in that it is military, As is well known, CIA’s budget is about $3.1 – $3.2 billion, with over 17,000 personnel; the NSA budget is around $3.6 billion, with nearly 40,000 personnel (20,000 direct-hire and almost 20,000 military).
