The Puzzle Palace is the unofficial nickname for the National Security Agency's central headquaters near Fort Meade, MD. Surrounded by three razor wire toped fences, it is home to one of the most secretive government agencies in the US. From there the NSA can watch the world. Here are some of the strange statictics on the NSA's headquaters:
* covers over 2 million square acers
*Has a permanent staff of over 10'000 people
*it's a self sustained city with its own police, fire, and medical services
*Houses the world largest computer network to be owned by a single agency
*Houses the nation second largest archives (Only the National Archive in DC is Bigger)

As the headquaters for the nations most secret Agency, the Puzzle Palace is sure to be a good place to hide many great secrets. According to some sources the base has many underground levels, most of which are in the form of buildings with more then one basement(most likely). What else do you think might be kept at NSA?

Cool !

I never thought much about it, those are interesting facts.

I wonder how much of the "base" is underground, things we don't even know about ?
