This was probably one of the more amusing statements. Perhaps William
Binney would have a different opinion:

In addition to the NSA's compliance safeguards, NSA personnel are
obligated to report when they believe NSA is not, or may not be,
acting consistently with law, policy, or procedure. This
self-reporting is part of the culture and fabric of NSA. If NSA is not
acting in accordance with law, policy, or procedure, NSA will report
through its internal and external intelligence oversight channels,
conduct reviews to understand the root cause, and make appropriate
adjustments to constantly improve.
