Bamford has done a powerful lot of research to show what Alexander's troops are up to with their billions of relatively unaccounted-for dollars. Alexander basically runs the National Security Agency, the Central Security Service, the U.S. Cyber Command -- thousands of spies and 14,000 cyber troops.
What that do in terms of surveillance is one thing. What they are prepared to do in terms of going on the offensive is another thing altogether.

Check it out. Bamford's done a great job, and his piece adds a whole new dimension to what's come out since Snowden.
