Sure, people might be surprised to find out how powerful the national security organizations are in the USA, but they know they're there.

Michael J. Glennon wrote an excellent book on it (in which he calls it a "double government") that goes into detail on the development of the national security state, its power, and what it would take to reign it in. I think is well worth reading. This PDF covers most of it, for free, in about 114 pages.
