 Wired Interview with Michael Lynn

This is one of the best pieces on this situation I have read. There are lots of places telling you the facts of the situation but this explains the history and why Lynn decided to do the Black Hat briefing. One interesting part was when Lynn was talking about when he quit his job with ISS: "I thought they were handling this in a non-ethical manner." I have read some conjecture that Lynn was doing this for the glory, but that's not the tone of the interview.

"Lynn: Air Force (Office of Special Investigations). NSA, is what I'm told, but he wouldn't show me his credentials. There were a lot of flashy badges around from lots of three-letter agencies. So they take me to a maintenance area and I'm surrounded by people ... and one of them says (to another guy), "You've got the van ready?" I'm going, "Oh my god." And they go, "Just kidding!... Oh, man, you rock! We can't thank you enough." And I'm just sitting there, like still pale white. They all shook my hand."
