Probably not.

Why not? Don't they monitor enough internet traffic to know what
the users are doing? Don't all ISPs either work for  the NSA, or
let the NSA monitor all their traffic?

Again, probably not?

They for sure do not have a deal with every ISP.

The question is whether they have enough deals with the *right* ISPs
to be able to see enough Tor traffic to have a good chance of
breaking some Tor circuits.

On a related note, does having (what I assume is) a serious percentage of the Tor relays in the Amazon cloud make it easier for the NSA to compromise anonymity?
