yep.  oddly, we hear very little about it in the USA.  it's causing a world
wide outrage except here.

this is the NSA we're talking about.  the great puzzle palace.  the same
people who helped bring you operation mkultra (mind control), haarp
(weather/atmosphere control) and tempest technology (eavesdropping on a
monitor by listening to the RF waves emitted by the CRT tube).

i have to admit, if they weren't so damned evil, they sound like a virtual
playground and a very cool job for anyone interested in geeky technology
and sci fi movies.
