The Other Nro

Every now and then, I read a news article that mentions the other NRO–the National Reconaissance Office–and I begin to daydream. Consider this line from today’s Washington Post: “NRO had salted away more than $1 billion as advance payments for future satellites. Congress acted because it discovered the NRO had used about $300 million from that account to build a new office building in Virginia.” Wouldn’t it be nice?
