NSA Surveillance-3

FILE - NSA Deputy Director John C. Inglis testifies at a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, in this Wednesday, July 17, 2013 file photo. "There are checks at multiple levels," NSA Deputy Director John Inglis told Congress in July. "There are checks in terms of what an individual might be doing at any moment in time." The same checks that protect Americans' personal data were also supposed to protect the NSA's information. Yet Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old contractor, managed to walk out with flash drives full of the nation's most highly classified documents. The NSA is still trying to figure out, in such a complex system, exactly how Snowden defeated those checks. Newly declassified documents released Tuesday Sept 10, 2013 tell a story of a surveillance apparatus so unwieldy and complex that nobody fully comprehended it, even as the government pointed it at the American people in the name of protecting them.
