We begin at the International Spy Museum in Washington only to discover that the Snowden revelations and the spying by the National Security Agency is not on display. We then visit the NSA at Fort Meade in Maryland only to discover we are not welcome, and could be fined $500 for coming into the parking lot. We then obtain NSA footage to show what the complex looks like and what they do, drawing on documents liberated by Edward Snowden and commentary by people who worked there including Snowden and defenders of the NSA.
