Wired-Reportage über neues NSA-Spionage-Center

Die NSA baut in Utah ein neues geheimes Spionage-Center. Wired hat eine längere Reportage darüber, die ziemlich beängstigend ist: The NSA Is Building the Country’s Biggest Spy Center (Watch What You Say).

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.” It is, in some measure, the realization of the “total information awareness” program created during the first term of the Bush administration—an effort that was killed by Congress in 2003 after it caused an outcry over its potential for invading Americans’ privacy.
