The NSA’s Enigma Machine …
KL-7 ADONIS, POLLUX US rotor-based cipher machine – KL-7 was an electro-mechanical rotor-based off-line cipher machine, developed by the National Security Agency (NSA) in the US. It was introduced in 1952 and served for many years as the main cipher machine of the US and NATO. It is relatively light-weight (9.3 kg) and is essentially a more advanced version of the German Enigma machine. It replaced the wartime SIGABA (ECM Mark II) and in some countries, such as the UK and Canada, also the CCM and the British Typex machines. For article, go here https://goo.gl/urjAVm

On “Your World” today, Judge Andrew Napolitano weighed in on the recently released FBI report that admits no major terror cases were cracked by the NSA’s surveillance program.
FBI agents haven’t cracked any terrorism cases thanks to the snooping powers in the Patriot Act, the Justice Department’s inspector general said in a report Thursday.
The Washington Times reported:
Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said that between 2004 and 2009, the FBI tripled its use of bulk collection under Section 215 of the Patriot Act, which allows government agents to compel businesses to turn over records and documents, and increasingly scooped up records of Americans who had no ties to official terrorism investigations.
The FBI did finally come up with procedures to try to minimize the information it was gathering on nontargets, but it took far too long, Mr. Horowitz said in the 77-page report, which comes just as Congress is trying to decide whether to extend, rewrite or entirely nix Section 215.
Backers say the Patriot Act powers are critical and must be kept intact, particularly with the spread of the threat from terrorists. But opponents have doubted the efficacy of Section 215, particularly when it’s used to justify bulk data collection such as in the case of the National Security Agency’s phone metadata program, revealed in leaks from former government contractor Edward Snowden.
The new report adds ammunition to those opponents, with the inspector general concluding that no major cases have been broken by use of the Patriot Act’s records-snooping provisions.
Napolitano told Neil Cavuto that the Patriot Act is “unconstitutional.”
“I hate to say I told you so, but I’m going to say it, I told you so,” Napolitano said. “Those of us who believe that the entire spying program violates the Constitution have been arguing not only is it unconstitutional, but it does not work.”
“We now have proof positive from the inspector general of the Justice Department himself…not a single case, not one, not one prosecution, not one conviction has been helped as a result of this spying,” he added.
