Small favors: the National Security Agency admits that it doesn't have total control of the internet . . .

. . . YET.

This is the other shoe...
Despite success creating magnificent supercomputers in Oak Ridge, the NSA realized they could not decode strong encryption in real time. Two responses followed:
1- They are creating an archive in Utah to duplicate ALL traffic on the internet for deciphering selectively at their measure.
2- Work to modify the infrastructure to allow real time manipulation in case of emergency.
Problem is that they are collecting your emails (all of them) and only admit to "interception" when they go back and read them. All without political discussion of the propriety of this policy.
