You would think finding the new location would be pretty important to any terrorist making plans.

SO LET'S JUST TELL THEM WHERE IT IS!

The data center will be built at Camp Williams, a National Guard training center 26 miles south of Salt Lake City,

WHY NOT INCLUDE A GOOGLE MAP AS WELL?

No need to tell them. They will outsource the construction and decryption to China, and locate the call-center in India. That will free up time for the employees in the US to make diversity banners to hang in the lobby.

The Obama administration will proceed with a Bush-era plan to use National Security Agency assistance in screening government computer traffic on private-sector networks, with AT&T as the likely test site, according to three current and former government officials.

President Obama said in May that government efforts to protect computer systems from attack would not involve "monitoring private-sector networks or Internet traffic," and Department of Homeland Security officials say the new program will scrutinize only data going to or from government systems.

But the program has provoked debate within DHS, the officials said, because of uncertainty about whether private data can be shielded from unauthorized scrutiny, how much of a role NSA should play and whether the agency's involvement in warrantless wiretapping during George W. Bush's presidency would draw controversy. Each time a private citizen visited a "dot-gov" Web site or sent an e-mail to a civilian government employee, that action would be screened for potential harm to the network.

"We absolutely intend to use the technical resources, the substantial ones, that NSA has. But . . . they will be guided, led and in a sense directed by the people we have at the Department of Homeland Security," the department's secretary, Janet Napolitano, told reporters in a discussion about cybersecurity efforts.

Under a classified pilot program approved during the Bush administration, NSA data and hardware would be used to protect the networks of some civilian government agencies. Part of an initiative known as Einstein 3, the plan called for telecommunications companies to route the Internet traffic of civilian agencies through a monitoring box that would search for and block computer codes designed to penetrate or otherwise compromise networks.

AT&T, the world's largest telecommunications firm, was the Bush administration's choice to participate in the test, which has been delayed for months as the Obama administration determines what elements to preserve, former government officials said. The pilot program was to have begun in February.

"To be clear, Einstein 3 development is proceeding," DHS spokeswoman Amy Kudwa said. "We are moving forward in a way that protects privacy and civil liberties."

Why SLC? If I am not mistaken (and I may well be), there is a whole lot of fiber (to include legacy UUNET) going through that area.

“SO LET’S JUST TELL THEM WHERE IT IS!”

The real one is in the basement of the Mormon Tabernacle where they house the genealogy supercomputers. That’s also where they control the Mormon satellite network and mind-control beams.

This “NSA” story is just a cover and will simply be a place to put the backup storage and archive the paper files.
