    I would hazard a guess that this material is from the recently released
    book 'Body of Secrets' by James Bamford. He is well known for his previous
    book on the NSA titled 'The Puzzle Palace'. If you are interested in the
    NSA and their history, the book is a fascinating read. I'd encourage
    everyone to check it out over articles like this. Just doesn't do the
    story justice, especially in the case of the USS Liberty.
