CIA Director Michael Hayden's Post at the Steelers' Heinz Field

He's posted at Heinz Field but his situation is more friendly than the Patriots' spy scandal.


What is the nation's top spy doing posted at Heinz Field, home to the Pittsburgh Steelers? Well, it's nothing devious like last year's "Spygate," when the New England Patriots were hit with charges of spying on opponents. In fact, it's downright friendly. See, CIA Director Michael Hayden is a Pittsburgh native with a real devotion to his hometown. Just last month at his Air Force retirement, the general said that while he left the city 39 years ago, "the city has never left me." And now, the city is recognizing its favorite son. Right near where Hayden grew up on the North Side, the city named a street for him close to Heinz Field. Gen. Michael V. Hayden Boulevard is at the intersection of Allegheny Avenue and North Shore Drive in the Steel City. Hayden tells us that he was honored and delighted when his brother, Harry, relayed the news to him. And he had just one question, according to reliable sources: Can he park his car there during Steelers games?
