CIA Ninja Librarians


NPR ran a piece called How Does The CIA Use Social Media? They mention how the CIA is following publicly available information like Facebook, Twitter, and foreign radio stations to gather information. They mention that some of their information gatherers are people with Masters of Library Science degrees. Later in the piece the researchers are referred to as "Ninja Librarians".

Robert Siegel and Guy Raz revisit arguably one of the program's most memorable phrases this week: ninja librarians. Also, they address one listener's email about the degree of Master of Library Science.
