Some where all this data is stored waiting to comprimised, sold or given away as a political or personal favor.

How much fracken data do these spies need. Sooner or later it's still boots on the ground ie HUMAMS dealing human terrorists. The government types some how feel entitled to do their job only in a theoretical world academic enviorment with minimal real world practicality.

Somebody wants their work handed to them on a silver platter in silver spoon. But even that won't improve the food.
