Bluffdale, Utah NSA Data Center

Privacy of World Citizens Wiped Out by USA

As of yesterday you are a Citizen of the World with no Privacy—no matter in which country you are located.


The ribbon-cutting ceremony invite,  sent to a select group of Utah politicians and dignitaries for the massive Utah Data Centre in Bluffdale, Utah, was as mysterious as the facility itself. Canada Free Press (CFP) could find no pictures, no accounts of the event anywhere on the Internet today even though an earlier media release said reporters would be there.

The bigger-than-the-CIA National Security Agency (NSA) had previously stated that the facility would start operations in September, 2013.

Why should this event mean anything to you and yours?

“While the NSA has offered no specifics about the Utah Data Center’s operations, a 2012 Wired magazine article, citing former intelligence and NSA officials, said computers at the data center will collect electronic information—from emails to cellphone records to purchasing receipts—from all over the world—, store it and look for threatening patterns.” (emphasis CFP’s).

With the privacy of every man, woman and child on earth now ‘deleted’, as far as is known not one country has moved to litigate against NSA and the largest spy center known to mankind.

The $2-billion, 1.5-million-square-ft. facility on the outskirts of Salt Lake City in Bluffdale will store 1 trillion terabytes of information, a sort of computer that swallowed the world.

Building started back in 2009 when the Obama administration approached MIDA (Military Installation Development Authority) to help build utilities for the Utah Data Center.  MIDA created a project area and had the land annexed into Bluffdale.  The NSA paid MIDA for all utility construction. (Salt Lake Tribune).

“The data center is alleged to be able to capture “all forms of communication, including the complete contents of private emails, cell phone calls and Internet searches, as well as all sorts of personal data trails—parking receipts, travel itineraries, bookstore purchases, and other digital “pocket litter”. (Wikipedia).

In other words, all things electronic gifted to mankind by the genius of Nicola Tesla.

“According to the FISA amendments Act of 2008, the federal government is legally prohibited from collecting, storing, analyzing, or disseminating the content of the communications of U.S. persons, whether inside or outside of the United States, unless authorized by an individual warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.”

But what came in with the tide in 2009 wiped out all forms of protecting citizens from government agencies that would abuse their privacy when all things Constitutional were set adrift on the outgoing tide.

The excuse of collecting information, storing it and looking for threatening patterns is a joke with the current administration operating under the bold-faced lie that al Qaeda is no longer a threat because President Barack Obama put them on the run, and that the Dept. of Homeland Security identifies returning vets, Tea Party members, and Christians as terrorists, rather than jihadists who now move freely from state to state and country to country.

Crypto Cracking

In addition to collecting the world’s information every day by satellites, by tapping into undersea cables, by picking up microwave links and tapping of cell phones and data links on your computer, email links, and so forth (James Bamford, Wired magazine), the sole purpose of the Utah Data Center is for code breaking. 

For the digital hip, it’s called ‘crypto-cracking’.

And code-breaking is crucial, because much of the data that the center will handle includes financial information, stock transactions, business deals, foreign military and diplomatic secrets, legal documents, confidential personal communications. (Wired magazine, March 15, 2012).

Think of the function of the Center how Bamford describes it as acting, “in essence, like a cloud, a digital cloud, so that agency employees, analysts from around the country at NSA headquarters and their listening posts in different parts of the U.S.—in Georgia, Texas, Hawaii and Colorado—can all access that information held in Bluffdale in that data center.  And that’s pretty much a summary of what that data center is all about.”

“The NSA is much different from the CIA. First of all, it’s about three times the size. It costs far more.  It’s tremendously more secret than the CIA. And what it does is very different. It’s focused on eavesdropping, on tapping into major communications links, on listening to what people around the world and, to some degree, in the United States say on telephones, email, communications . . . And NSA is really the most powerful intelligence agency, not only in the U.S., but in the world today.”

Bill Binney, a senior official interviewed by Bamford, had been with NSA for 40 years almost, and he left, saying that what they’re doing is unconstitutional.”

Think of it as your worst nightmare come to daylight.

Meanwhile, in addition to the USA coaxing along wars in powder-keg nations under the guise of Arab Spring, the USA has just become the biggest spy country in the entire world.
