    maybe if the NSA stopped spying on all of us, they could have enough resources to spy on actual threats. just think -- this post could be the one the breaks 'em.

    It's amazing that the complex uses as much electricity as a small city.

    The good news is that no new hardware can be installed until they get more juice.

    I'm fairly sure you will see the 'wingers working to get this blamed on Clinton, since BushCo has only had 5 1/2 years to deal with this...

    What's most likely is that Cheney or Rove or somebody will get all irate that someone from the NSA !dared! to leak, and someone in the press !dared! to print, this information, thereby "jeopardizing national security".

    This sounds like a job for Dr. Brown. Not only could he solve the NSA's electricity problems, but he could also go undercover and sell fake nuclear weapons made out of pinball machine parts on the black market. Just think of all the terrorists we could nab!

    The average usage of electricity at CIA Langley is about 11,000,000 KW per month.
    That's an average of roughly $750,000.00 EVERY MONTH.

    This does not even consider how much natural gas they use.
