For years now, civil libertarians have been blowing the whistle on the NSA's operations -- and the massive new spy center they're building in Utah to facilitate their work. Add your name at right to tell Congress to put the brakes on that project.
We now know that the NSA is spying on billions of our online communications -- in real time. Here's how Wired described the spy center where they want to manage that work:
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.
Just how much data is the NSA preparing to store at the center? On the order of yottabytes. The English language literally does not have a prefix for numbers bigger than the yotta order of magnitude.
The NSA and its lackeys in government have lost all credibility. The agency is vacuuming up all of our communications, and this spy center is going to be the hub of those efforts. Tell Congress to kill the project.
