I bet it's data.

I should've been more clear in stating that I do not know if they are collecting data at this center on US citizens as implied by many sites.

The problem has never been collecting the data, the problem is sorting the data and sharing the data. (e.g. 9/11 info was known, not shared, and not analyzed or at least not correctly) Databases are very cumbersome and the more data you input the slower they move.

Data is information, it's worthless if you can't sort it.

Intelligence is information that has been processed, coalesced, analyzed and disemenated.

I remember getting INTSUMs of our AOR that were cut and paste jobs of info we sent to the 2 shop just days prior! No analysis, just regurgitated! Apoplectic is an understatement.

Anyone ever wonder "why" the NSA is relocated to Utah? I've no doubt why.

FBI, CIA, and NSA pay extra attention to and favor Mormon recruits. This is due to a small but recognizable Mormon population within the 3 letter agencies, plus they typically have steller clean records.

Don't forget we had a Mormon former CIA agent Evan McMullin, running for President in 2016 as an independent from Utah.

Close, to recruit mormons to run the NSA........ they don't talk.

I'd bet my life savings that the main religion inside the walls of the NSA is mormon.

How I love the "religious" zealots.

Not to mention, Utah is a "Domestic Terrorist" stronghold.

I'm guessing, from the .gov perspective...

gun owning, anti tax, pro small govt veteran/survivalist types.

You know... people who don't want to be, and aren't easy to keep in line.

I think the Bundy clan also has roots in Utah.
