A Government That Can Only Infringe On Privacy

Power surges 'cripple NSA data centre'

Edward Snowden  
The NSA's data gathering plans have come under scrutiny thanks to whistleblower Edward Snowden.
Electrical supply problems at a National Security Agency data centre have delayed its opening by a year, reports the Wall Street Journal. Power surges at the giant Utah centre had ruined equipment costing almost a million dollars, it said. The technical problems had also led to lengthy investigations that had meant its opening date had been pushed back.

The Utah plant is one of three the NSA is building to boost its data gathering and surveillance capabilities.
Over the past 13 months, 10 separate electrical surges have occurred at the data centre in Bluffdale, Utah, according to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), which is reported to have cost $1.4bn (£872m) to build.
  We are adrift in a ship of fools.
