Worthy Christian News » NSA: We can't delete evidence, because our systems are too complex

(Daily Caller / Worthy News)– The National Security Agency is making an ironic excuse for why it can't stop deleting data evidence that could be used against it, despite receiving multiple court orders to stop – it doesn't know how.

After failing to comply with an order to retain data collected under both executive authority and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act authority, DOJ claimed in March it misunderstood the order to read it only had to keep data acquired under the former. Pointing to documents proving otherwise, a FISA Court judge accused the department of attempting to mislead the court, and again ordered the retention of data in both circumstances.

According to Ledgett, NSA systems are too complex for such a request, and following through with the court's order would have "an immediate, specific, and harmful impact on the national security of the United States."

    I can delete the data for you.
    Just give me a hammer and a few wire cutters and access to the hard drives , and it will be no problem.
