Barry, My Liege :
According to NSA chief Keith Alexander your NSA team is trying to make our personal data they collect more secure. [http://www.sfgate.com/news/politics/article/Officials-say-new-anti-leak-measures-set-at-NSA-4672688.php]
Of course, that statement is an oxymoron. The data will be totally secure if you do not collect it. Other than that, there is no ultimate security.
But, the even dumber idea they are considering is to contract with PRIVATE COMPANIES to store the data.
My Liege, it is intolerable to collect the data in the first place, but allowing a profit motivated enterprise to manage that data is insane.
My humble suggestion is to place some person with actual common sense in the decision loop. Then perhaps the National Security craziness would slow down.
Your faithful servant,
