    Another reiterated theme: the NSA computers are all-knowing, all-seeing, so why can’t their programmers fix the ACA? By yesterday?

    Has any president really had control over the NSA since Truman created it in 1952?

    In case you want to know…

    The National Security Agency (NSA) is the main producer and manager of signals intelligence for the United States. Estimated to be one of the largest of U.S. intelligence organizations in terms of personnel and budget,the NSA operates under the jurisdiction of the Department of Defense and reports to the Director of National Intelligence.

    The NSA is tasked with the global monitoring, collection, decoding, translation and analysis of information and data for foreign intelligence and counterintelligence purposes, including surveillance of targeted individuals on U.S. soil. The agency is authorized to accomplish its mission through clandestine means among which is bugging electronic systems and allegedly engaging in sabotage through subversive software.The NSA is also responsible for the protection of U.S. government communications and information systems. As part of the growing practice of mass surveillance in the United States, the NSA collects and stores all phone records of all American citizens.

    Unlike the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), both of which specialize primarily in foreign human espionage, the NSA has no authority to conduct human-source intelligence gathering, although it is often portrayed so in popular culture. Instead, the NSA is entrusted with coordination and deconfliction of SIGINT components of otherwise non-SIGINT government organizations, which are prevented by law from engaging in such activities without the approval of the NSA via the Defense Secretary.

    As part of these streamlining responsibilities, the agency has a co-located organization called the Central Security Service (CSS), which was created to facilitate cooperation between NSA and other U.S. military cryptanalysis components. Additionally, the NSA Director simultaneously serves as the Commander of the United States Cyber Command and as Chief of the Central Security Service.

    @masterskrain

    Fairly thorough synopsis. I were part of the system in the USAF at one time.

    Because the NSA programmers jobs are to keep us informed on threats to the US not healthcare. Any other questions you need answered?
