CBS News interviews the director of the National Security Agency, General Mike Hayden. The production "represents the first time a network news team has gotten inside the NSA, an organization so secret even the number of people who work there is classified." The interview reveals that the agency had failed to warn of the impending terrorist attacks because it had fallen behind the curve of the information revolution. "The NSA we uncovered is not the all-hearing Big Brother of popular myth it is a government bureaucracy on the brink of disaster," David Martin reports. Other findings are that terrorists like Osama bin Laden now have access to very sophisticated communication equipment and encryption technology, as unbreakable codes can be downloaded for free off the Internet.
