Wanted: NCSD Head

The government is looking for one good person: someone with years of operational security experience with a solid track record of leading a talented group of people performing vital, sensitive tasks for a public-sector salary in complete anonymity. The candidate must be willing to work long hours, be comfortable with getting no credit for his or her successes and take a public thrashing for the smallest failures.

Interested parties should contact the Department of Homeland Security’s Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection directorate. Immediately.
