In a statement, the N.S.A. denied that it had ever carried out espionage to benefit American businesses.
“We do not use our foreign intelligence capabilities to steal the trade secrets of foreign companies on behalf of — or give intelligence we collect to — U.S. companies to enhance their international competitiveness or increase their bottom line,” said Vanee Vines, an N.S.A. spokeswoman. ….. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/21/world/nsa-dragnet-included-allies-aid-groups-and-business-elite.html
Now if that be true, and not a lode and load of bullshit, is NSA not fit for Future Great Game purpose.
And if it is not true, and is a such a bullshit lode node, then clearly are NSA trailing rather than leading in such games as are being virtually played.
That though can also be be construed and quite easily spun to prove to players with a certain need to know, that trailing trial media constructs and novel content is a beta phorm of leadership from an unparalleled position of predominant excellence which exercises a remote fabless command and virtually unbridled cyber command.
That though may also be a proof that such facility and ability, which be both a very convenient and most irregular and unconventional capability, is a stealthy intelligence service provision from and/or for …….. well, relatively anonymous others elsewhere and thus much more to be considered and recognised as an engaging third party private/pirate/alien app than anything else from teams contracted and working from within, in-house.
It be foolishly naive and potentially catastrophically damaging to not imagine that greater intelligence for free global sharing be beyond all notional and traditional power base controls, whether they be assumed hereditary or hierarchical or otherly with the likes of fiat currency instruments of paraphysical control/remote virtual command.
But she added that some economic spying was justified by national security needs. “The intelligence community’s efforts to understand economic systems and policies, and monitor anomalous economic activities, are critical to providing policy makers with the information they need to make informed decisions that are in the best interest of our national security,” Ms. Vines said.
Spies have a freer hand with economic targets in Britain, where the law permits intelligence gathering in the service of the “economic well-being” of the country. A GCHQ spokesman said that its policy was not to comment on intelligence matters, but that the agency “takes its obligations under the law very seriously.”
At the request of GCHQ, The Times agreed to withhold some details from the documents because of security concerns.
Yes, well, quite so. Evidence there that such activity as is trailed above, is of prime importance and especial interest to all within intelligence circles, by virtue of what can be done with IT in leading events, dear boy, events. But it is a very select and most exclusive space place for such as are rightly minded and be not dissimilar to and reminiscent of, in years afore and times gone by, Knights Templar Round Tables.
Hollow denials never ring true, do they, and always result in failure of purpose, methinks.

The NSA personnel in Berlin were part of the Army Security Agency and came under army administrators for discipline. About 60 or 70 percent of NSA were smoking pot — a lot of them while on duty. It’s very relaxing, particularly when you’re bored with the Russian or East German traffic that is coming through.
The army didn’t like pot?
Well, the new colonel in charge, called Hamilton, who came from Army Airborne, wanted to arrest everyone that smoked it. DIRNSA, the director of NSA, its head in Fort Meade sent out a message saying that the colonel shouldn’t do anything that would endanger the security of the country, meaning he should lay off. During those days NSA Berlin brought out an alternative newspaper called Up against the wall. A congressional inquiry followed with a senator and two generals on it but it too didn’t become public.
Merry XSSXXXmas, Folks, and Man, have we got a New Year for you for Proper Preparation and Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance Permitting Prime Prize Penetration and Perfect Private Pursuit of Public Projects and Pirate ProgramMING Parameters and there is much ado about everything being done and so much more to do and yet to be done for the future in the present, and free at long last from the right dodgy restraints which be cast, and have media performing casts and non state actors, rooted in an analogue past.
