The National Security Agency has been secretly unraveling encryption technology that billions of Internet users rely on to keep their electronic messages and confidential data safe from prying eyes.  The “New York Times” says for the past 13 years, the N-S-A has spent billions to make nearly everyone’s secrets available for government consumption.  The Times and “The Guardian” of London reports the NSA built powerful supercomputers to break encryption codes and partnered with unnamed technology companies to insert "back doors" into their software.  The government agency has for years tried to exploit traffic from popular companies like Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and Facebook.
