[liberationtech] NSA flag terms

I find it hard to believe the list is authentic. It has words like "Java",
"Quiche" and "Redheads" for gods sake. Also, they misspelled the name of
the Israeli equivalent of the Navy SEALS (They wrote "Shayet-13" instead of
"Shayetet-13").

The NSA aren't stupid, they're running the biggest spying operation in the
world. I know size doesn't imply competency but I'm inclined to believe
they know what they're doing.
The list is, in all probability, fake.
