NSA (*N***ot *S***ecuring *A***merica)
Sure they intentionally weakened security everywhere, and that was bad, but that is the least of their mistakes.
They also gathered all our sensitive information into one place and then did a horrible job protecting it. if regular level operators such as snowden could access whatever he wanted and walk away with the amount that he did, just imagine how much sensitive information nefarious double agents got their hands on during the same time.
in any government organization the size of the NSA it is a statistical certainty that a certain number of people inside the organization could be bought or pressured into stealing information, and their internal security was a joke which is why they got caught with their pants down in the first place. that is the truly terrifying aspect that is never discussed.
