NSA: We lack the capability to search our own email

“There’s no central method to search an email at this time with the way our records are set up, unfortunately,” NSA Freedom of Information Act officer Cindy Blacker told me last week.

The system is “a little antiquated and archaic,” she added.

This is either beautifully ironic or utter mendacity.
