WTF does NORAD stand for

Doesn't matter what it stands for.

They were the last agency (if you want to call it that) that still had a pristine reputation, so they are now being used to pin dodgy actions overseas to make them seem legit in the media.

I always hate when ASAP is pronounced as an initialism, instead of an acronym.

Especially in military themed movies/tv shows. In 20 years, I never heard it spoke A S A P.
