Dear American Tax Payer – You Just Paid $2 Billion For This

| |

Our grid depends on this mineral

How is it possible that the NSA can monitor every digital interaction in the United States?

Well, if you’ve got a blank check from the Federal government, you can pretty much build whatever you need. And the National Security Agency has done just that.

Last year it was revealed that the NSA was building a data center capable of storing massive amounts of data.

Now, we have our first pictures of what you, the American taxpayer, has purchased for the low-low price of just $2 billion.

The irony? It’s being used to further entrap you within the digital surveillance state:

The facility, called the Utah Data Center, is located on Camp Williams, a training facility for the Utah National Guard, is set to open in October.

And boy does it seem like an impressive operation.

One Fox News report says as much as 5 zettabytes — 1 zettabyte = 1 billion terabytes = 1 trillion gigabytes — and with just 1 zettabyte (1024 exabytes) of space, the NSA can store a year’s worth of the global Internet traffic (which is estimated reached 966 exabytes per year in 2015).

Here’s James Bamford of Wired, author of the book “The Shadow Factory: The NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America“:

“Once it’s operational, the Utah Data Center will become, in effect, the NSA cloud. The center will be fed data from the agency’s eavesdropping satellites, overseas listening posts, and secret monitoring rooms in telecom facilities throughout the U.S.”

NSA

Reams of data will be handled by NSA hackers — who harvest 2.1 million gigabytes of data per hour — and they’ll get help from the most powerful computer the world has ever known.

That machine, the Titan Supercomputer, is capable of churning through more than 20,000 trillion calculations each second or 20 petaflops. (1 petaflop = 1 quadrillion instructions per second).

The top-of-the-line tech will be used to analyze foreign and domestic communications — obtained from Americas major Internet Service Providers (ISPs) — in an effort to detect terrorist activity (note: the facility’s precise mission is classified).

NSA

Supporting facilities include water treatment facilities, chiller plant, power substations, vehicle inspection facility, visitor control center, and sixty diesel-fueled emergency standby generators and fuel facility for a 3-day 100% power backup capability.

The chiller plant will keep the suped-up system from overheating:
