Michael Hayden's Off The Record Conversation Gets Live Tweeted By Liberal Activist

You would think the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency and director of the National Security Agency would know a thing or two about discretion, but live tweets of an overheard phone conversation prove otherwise.

Tom Matzzie, a political strategist and former Washington director of MoveOn.org Political Action, found himself sitting in front of former NSA chief Michael Hayden during a train commute Thursday:

While most would consider this to be a pretty risky endeavor, Matzzie -- who has blogged for HuffPost -- thinks he'll make it out alright:

In fact, he even managed to score a photo with Hayden:

Well played, Matzzie. Well played.

UPDATE (8:45 a.m. ET): Matzzie appeared on Friday's edition of Sirius radio's The Agenda, hosted by Ari Rabin-Havt, to reveal why Hayden may have displayed clouded judgment.
