THE SHADOW FACTORY The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America

by | Read by Paul Michael

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2008

National security expert and former writer for the NEW YORK TIMES James Bamford unearths the massive, technologically advanced organization that is the National Security Agency. This groundbreaking work is sure to ignite questions as to who is the real enemy. Through the filtering of phone calls, messages, and even personal emails, the NSA is quietly utilizing its "Black Widow" computer to sort through data at more than a quadrillion operations per second. Reading with a stern, steady, and collected tone, narrator Paul Michael relates Bamford's findings so as to trigger a response in his listeners, forcing them to take sides on the issues while at the same time making them paranoid about the security of their own personal affairs.
