DISAPPEARED?

~hat
is
the
exact
nature
of
the
workdoneby
NSA
linguists?
When
linguists
work
with
different
languages,with
materialsin
varying
volumesand
in
various
printed
andspoken
forms,
what
duties
do
they
perform
in
common,
andwhat
duties
are
completely
different?
Those
ques
tions
were
not
specifically
posed
in
the
mission
originally
assigned
tothe
Language
Analysis
TasK
Force
(LATFO)
when
it
was
createdin
1975.
In
stead,
that
mission,
simply
stated,
was
to
ana
lyze
and
validate
the
NSA
Career
Service
Occupa-
tion
System
as
it
appliesto
NSA
personnel
in
the
Language
Career
Field
(12XX).
But,
during
~hp
1~
mnnths
of
its
existence
LATFO
(Chairman
I
.~~~~~I
found
these
two
unstated
questions
con
$tantly
coming
up.
In
interviews
with
Agency
linguists,
and
in
our
subsequent
discuss1ons,
we
found
that
certain
functions
could
easily
be
fitted
intologicalcategories,
but
others
justdidn't
want
to
work
that
way.
As
a
re
sult
of
these
divergences,
our
interviews
and
discussions
ranged
far
beyond
thelimitsof
our
stated
mission
and,
by
the
time
LATFO
submitted
its
official
report,
we
hadgained
many
revealing
insightsinto
the
factsof
life
asfaced
by
the
average
NSA
linguist
(if
such
a
person
exists).
Some
of
these
insights
pertainedto
ourmission
andfound
their
way
into
the
of-
ficial
report
that
we
sU9mitted
to.the
Task
Analysis
Steering
Committee.But
otherspertained
not
tothe
specific
mission,but
to
the
overall
philosophy
of
language
occupation
at
NSA.
We
considered
these
insights
to
be
outside
the
purview
and
mission
assigned
to
LAFTO
and,
accordingly,did
not
include
them
our
official
report.
But,
sincethese
incidental
ideas
weredeemed
to
be
too
valuable
to
simply
throwaway,
I
took
it
upon
myself
to
present
them
in
my
own
way
in
a
special
memorandum
to
ADPS,
as
an
individual
report
by
the
BGroupmember
of
LATFO.
It
1S
that
memorandumwhich
hasservedas
thebasisfor
the
article
which
follows
.Imust
stateat
the
outset
that
most
of
theideas
ex
pressed
in
this
article
are
my
own
andI
take
full
responsibility
for
them.ButI
cannot
take
full
credit
for
all
of
them,
because
the
background
experiences
andknowledge
of
my
colleagues,
coupled
with
the
stimulus
and
criticisms
that
flowed
freelyin
some
of
ourheated
discussions,
effectively
sharpened
my
own
perceptions
and
personal
views.
The
LATFO
report
wasan
investigationinto
what"NSA's
linguists
--
that
is,
people
--
do.
In
the
following
pages
Ihope
to
show
theotherside
of
thecoin
the
vital
rolethat
foreign
languages
play
in
theproduction
of
COMINT
reports.
