Thanks, as a non native english speaker i am still learning these fine differences.
You want to say that NSA "would like to" instead of "they forced them to" ...?
In these cases where we "do not really know whats behind", i personally think its wise to act like somebody who "does not know if a burglar is in the house".
What do you do "if you do not know IF a burglar is in the house?"
You act like he is there. If he is not, you have been safe and it was funny.
