Over the weekend, I watched a documentary called “The Spy Factory.” Great title, no?
The documentary provided an inside glimpse of the National Security Agency (NSA), how they gather intelligence, and what kinds of intelligence they’re interested in.
A big question the documentary tackled is how much intel the NSA, CIA, and FBI had on the terrorists who carried out the 9/11 attacks.
I was sort of stunned by two things: 1) One of the government agencies had Osama bin Laden’s phone number. 2) The terrorists listed themselves in the local White Pages.
It was an intriguing documentary. If you’re into this type of thing, I recommend it!
