Video: NSA Building Spy Center to Hold Citizens' Private Info

| by Michael Allen

Democracy Now reports (video below) how the NSA (National Security Agency) is building the largest spy center in the country in Bluffdale, Utah. The spy center is part of a NSA surveillance program called 'Stellar Wind.'

Investigative reporter James Bamford says the NSA spy center will contain numerous databases to store all forms of communication collected by the agency: private emails, cell phone calls, Google searches, parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases and other digital info.

Yesterday, NSA Director General Keith Alexander denied that  U.S. citizens’ phone calls and emails are being intercepted.

However, Bamford says: "A few years ago, President Bush said before camera that the United States is not eavesdropping on anybody without a warrant, and then it turns out that we had this exposure to all the warrantless eavesdropping in the New York Times article. And so, you have this constant denial and parsing of words."
