The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center

The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say) article tells that the NSA has become the largest, most covert, and potentially most intrusive intelligence agency ever.

Under construction by contractors with top-secret clearances, the blandly named Utah Data Center is being built for the National Security Agency. A project of immense secrecy, it is the final piece in a complex puzzle assembled over the past decade. Its purpose: to intercept, decipher, analyze, and store vast swaths of the world’s communications as they zap down from satellites and zip through the underground and undersea cables of international, foreign, and domestic networks. The heavily fortified $2 billion center should be up and running in September 2013.

Flowing through its servers and routers and stored in near-bottomless databases will be all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls, and Google searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter.”

But “this is more than just a data center,” says one senior intelligence official who until recently was involved with the program. The mammoth Bluffdale center will have another important and far more secret role that until now has gone unrevealed. It is also critical, he says, for breaking codes.

    Exclusive: Spy agency seeks cyber-ops curriculum

    (Reuters) – The National Security Agency is trying to expand U.S. cyber expertise needed for secret intelligence operations against adversaries on computer networks through a new cyber-ops program at selected universities.

    The cyber-ops curriculum is geared to providing the basic education for jobs in intelligence, military and law enforcement that are so secret they will only be revealed to some students and faculty, who need to pass security clearance requirements, during special summer seminars offered by NSA.

    It is not easy to find the right people for cyber operations

    NSA officials say the program, which is part of President Barack Obama’s national initiative to improve cybersecurity through education, aims to prepare students for careers at the U.S. Cyber Command, the NSA’s signals intelligence operations and law enforcement agencies investigating cyber crimes.

    All done! Thankfully for the comment – very considered, and pushing me too to think about all of this more. Because me, I come from it from having known violent young men, and what that means. Business like Lorna Rhodes on Excellent Max features how different elements – violence, mental illness, suffering, institutional life, interpersonal forms – come together. Even though in the media, I do think there is the tendency to try to find the simple storyline, and that unfortunately serves to explain away too much, both with violence and mental health.
