Never mind the NSA and PRISM: this is the real overlooked story.
Back in October of 2012 I wrote this blog article regarding the (quietly) announced a partnership between the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) and Jeff Bezos of Amazon coming together to create a ‘cloud computing solution based on a AI (Artificial Intelligence) / Quantum Computer system (!).

Amazon and the CIA in a business alliance?
Holy Sh*t, Batman!
And all of this is taking place in none other than a Canadian technology firm based out of Vancouver…
