Much-Mangled Agency Names

The DEA is the Drug Enforcement Administration (not Agency). The FDA is the Food and (not Federal) Drug Administration.

The GAO used to be the General Accounting Office, but it was often erroneously called the Government Accounting Office. It recently became the Government Accountability Office.

Not a government agency, but one that got past me recently: It's the Natural (not National) Resources Defense Council.
