From Evan Ward <evan.w...@nrl.navy.mil>
Subject Re: ICLA US Government
Date Mon, 07 Apr 2014 15:28:04 GMT
Update: Heard back from Daniel Risacher today. Apparently the NSA had 
the same concerns we have, but decided not to argue about subtle 
differences ("de minimis non curat lex"). Still waiting to hear if this 
agency will take the same position.

Best Regards,
