A national security state is a form of government where the intelligence services form a "Fourth Estate", a branch of government independent and above the three branches of legislature, executive, and judiciary.
When people speak about a "Deep State" they are simply stating that the United States is a national security state. Its intelligence services are a state within a state that no one controls.
