“Removing and retaining such highly classified material displays a total disregard of Pho’s oath and promise to protect our nation’s national security. As a result of his actions, Pho compromised some of our country’s most closely held types of intelligence, and forced NSA to abandon important initiatives to protect itself and its operational capabilities, at great economic and operational cost.” - U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur, 25 September 2018, after former NSA employee Nghia Hoang PHO was sentenced to 66 months in prison for retaining classified information at his home.
