"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

The NSA has claimed that obtaining such information would require multiple databases and systems to be shut down, a process that would allegedly set the agency back several months

I rather highly doubt that.  duplicate/clone the databases and then you can forensically examine the copies/clones while the main databases continue unmolested.
