NSA Building Of Secrets
Riss Flex asks what is a windowless, 29-story skyscraper doing smack dab in the middle of New York City, replete with mysterious black SUVs parked outside?
Turns out the building, formerly the AT&T Long Lines Center, is now home to the National Security Agency (NSA), which conducts top-secret spy programs there in conjunction with the telecommunications giant. Flex says the facility is a telephone exchange, or wire center, where the NSA can intercept international communication for national security interests.
Here’s more from Flex, including whistleblower Edward Snowden’s claim that the intelligence community held information obtained through these methods relating to Cuba’s possible role in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
