Lynn: Yes, they did, actually. And I didn't know what it was, so I didn't thank him properly.... This was a really funny story. (Right after my talk, this) guy walks up with a very, very impressive badge ... and says, "I need to speak with you. Now."
WN: What agency was it?
Lynn: Air Force (Office of Special Investigations). NSA, is what I'm told, but he wouldn't show me his credentials. There were a lot of flashy badges around from lots of three-letter agencies. So they take me to a maintenance area and I'm surrounded by people ... and one of them says (to another guy), "You've got the van ready?" I'm going, "Oh my god." And they go, "Just kidding!... Oh, man, you rock! We can't thank you enough." And I'm just sitting there, like still pale white. They all shook my hand.
