A former NSA chief tried to do an on-background interview on the train. Oops.

A former NSA chief tried to do an on-background interview on the train. Oops.

Tom Matzzie is a political strategist who used to run the D.C. branch of MoveOn.org Political Action. He sat in front of former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden on an Amtrak Acela train today. Hayden was being interviewed by a number of reporters, including Time‘s Massimo Calabresi, and in each case he talked to on the condition that he only be identified as a “former senior administration official.”

Oops.

Update: So here’s how the whole thing ended – with Matzzie and Hayden taking a selfie together.
