“There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.”   
                             —    Senator Daniel K. Inouye (1987)

The NSA is a military organization – they like to arrest people.  We recommend focusing on the contractors that are across the freeway, to the North.
This includes Booze Allen (Ed Snowden’s former employer), CACI, Raytheon, General Dynamics, G2 Inc, etc.  These companies do most of the heavy work for the NSA.
