“…according to a U.S. Navy document [on January 29, 2007], once the invasion [of Iraq] was under way, NSA’s [National Security Agency’s] strategic SIGINT [signals intelligence] collection units in the United States archived 60 percent of the material they collected and never processed (i.e., translated or analyzed) it. The military’s tactical SIGINT units taking part in the invasion processed less than 2 percent of the Iraqi messages they intercepted.”
