Updated: While riding the Acela train Thursday afternoon, former Huffington Post reporter Tom Matzzie eavesdropped on former NSA director Michael Hayden’s phone conversation. And live-tweeted everything.

It didn’t end there. Before Hayden got off the train, Matzzie snapped a photo with the “Steelers fan” because, why not?

Thursday night, the Washington Post reached Hayden by phone who told them “I didn’t criticize the president…I actually said these are very difficult issues.”

But until one of the reporters on the other end of Hayden’s phone call reveals details of their conversation, this remains a “he said, he said” situation.
