Report: NSA Director to Step Down by April

National Security Agency Director Gen. Keith Alexander and his number two are on the way out, according to a new Reuters report.

Reuters' Warren Strobel and Mark Hosenball report the Army General will reportedly be out as head of the spy agency by next March or April at the very latest. Alexander's deputy director, John "Chris" Inglis, allegedly has formalized plans to retire by the end of next year. 

Alexander and Inglis (right) became common faces on Capitol Hill after the so-hot-right-now Glenn Greenwald exposed the NSA's massive surveillance operation with help from documents leaked by former contractor Edward Snowden. The two have testified on multiple occasions, answering lawmakers questions about the size and scope of the agency's spying operations and how the Patriot Act and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act affects their work.
