"Illegal Spying Below": Blimp Flies Over NSA Utah Data Center in Protest

National Security Agency workers in Utah found themselves under an eye in the sky Friday morning — an airship emblazoned with "Illegal Spying Below," floating directly above the agency's huge data center outside Bluffdale.

The airship (technically, blimps have no rigid structure) was a stunt engineered by Greenpeace, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Tenth Amendment Center to promote a new website,, that lets people track legislators' voting records on NSA surveillance matters.
