GIANT SURVEILLANCE SPYING EAR IN WEST VIRGINIA MOUNTAINS

(01/10/2014)

By Bob Weaver

West Virginia likely has an installation that houses one America's key surveillance operations, including expansive surveillance on its on citizens, at Sugar Grove, Pendleton County.

The NSA monitors with warrant-less searches, US citizens emails, Internet searches, phone calls, and transactions at Sugar Grove, Pendleton County, in addition to other facilities used for the massive surveillance.

The Sugar Grove eavesdropping operation was more recently revealed in the Edward Snowden leaks, although it was first reported in 1982 by author James Bamford, who has written four books about the NSA, starting with "The Puzzle Palace" in 1982.

He has described the Navy-NSA operation at Sugar Grove as "the country's largest eavesdropping bug."

While some American civil libertarians are outraged by the broad violation of the Fourth Amendment, most citizens appear to accept the spying, motivated by fear, in the cause of homeland security.

The US Congress, with a few exceptional members, have "smoked and screened" the secret spying on its own citizens without warrants.

In a 2005 New York Times article, Bamford said the assortment of parabolic dish antennas at the West Virginia base, located in the National Radio Quiet Zone, "silently sweep in millions of private telephone calls and email messages an hour."
