"At its core and at its best, Bamford's book is a schematic diagram tracing the obsessions and excesses of the Bush administration after 9/11, a valuable complement to the accumulating narratives of torture abroad and legalistic sophistry at home."
From the Publisher
Annotation s someone listening in? Maybe. Probably. Yes. In THE SHADOW FACTORY: THE ULTRA-SECRET NSA FROM 9/11 TO THE EAVESDROPPING ON AMERICA, James Bamford, a security expert who has taught at the University of California, Berkeley, continues to write on the National Security Agency (NSA) and the intelligence community. Since 9/11, the NSA has moved beyond its original mission of pursuing intelligence outside the United States. Now, with its vastly expanded domestic spying apparatus, it wages the War on Terror often at the expense of the privacy and civil liberties of ordinary citizens. This is a serious read that will also engage cloak and dagger fans.
Editors Note James Bamford has been the preeminent expert on the National Security Agency since his reporting revealed the agency’s existence in the 1980s. Now Bamford describes the transformation of the NSA since 9/11, as the agency increasingly turns its high-tech ears on the American public.The Shadow Factory reconstructs how the NSA missed a chance to thwart the 9/11 hijackers and details how this mistake has led to a heightening of domestic surveillance. In disturbing detail, Bamford describes exactly how every American’s data is being mined and what is being done with it. Any reader who thinks America’s liberties are being protected by Congress will be shocked and appalled at what is revealed here.
