Is the Director of the NSA a Democrat or Republican?
Keith B. Alexander, is he a Democrat or Republican? It's for an essay.

I don't believe he's ever stated his affiliation, one way or the other. As an active-duty military officer, he would be discouraged from participating in any sort of partisan activity. The majority of military officers are Republicans, but that's about all there is to go on.

I don't know. Most likely he's a republican though since the vast majority of military officers are.

By tradition generals and any other member of the military who may have to deal directly with members of Congress are 'strongly encouraged' to switch their party affliation to 'none' or 'independent.'
The idea behind this is to remind the elected officials that the person is giving his/her professional judgement without political bias.
