the NSA director, giving him, at least where
: SIGINT is concerned, his own Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force.

Let's just say lots of secrecy, Military power, Military and civilian
personnel, MANY BILLIONS of dollars of funding per year and no accountability.

Called UKUSA.

* "A Spy Agency Admits Accumulating $4 Billion in Secret Money"
* By Tim Weiner, The New York Times, May 16, 1996
* In a complete collapse of accountability, NRO, the Government agency that
* builds spy satellites, accumulated about $4 billion in uncounted secret
* money. [First they said it was $1 billion, then $2 billion...]
* The new head of the agency, John Nelson, said that the secret agency had
* undergone "a fundamental financial meltdown."
* The agency's secrecy made Congressional oversite next to impossible,
* intelligence officials said.
* Just two years previously, the NRO constructed a "stealth building".
* It was a $300 million new headquarters. The agency had explained that
* happened because they treated the construction of the building as a
* covert operation.

A covert operation against whom?

The Pentagon was in operational charge of the NRO.

The NRO is a sister agency to the NSA.

Key Recovery Means No Cryptography

It's one way or the other.

Zero or One.

We either have uncrackable crypto, or crackable crypto, meaning no crypto.
