Posted on 06/06/2013 4:46:43 PM PDT by Nachum
A top-secret April PowerPoint slideshow details how the National Security Agency partnered with nine tech companies, including Apple, Microsoft and Google, to monitor users activity. The NSA got direct access to these companies servers´ in order to directly watch user communications, according to the presentation obtained by the Washington Post and the Guardian. The program was nominally aimed at foreign actors, but as the Post reports, purely domestic communications could easily end up in NSA hands, so long as an algorithm estimated at least a 51 percent probability that they were foreign.

How much do ya want to be the algorithm goes something like this:
LocationProb = 51 + Calculatedprob
They’re too busy watching American citizens exercising their Constitutional rights, and ignoring the muzzie terrorists.
Maybe to remain private we need to use the TOR network, proxy servers, private browsers not IE nor firefox
maybe we just need to shoot the sons of b.......
--Drill waves to NSA snoop--
Notice that “stored data” is one of the things that can be collected.Think about that if you use MS Sky Drive, Google Drive or iCloud...
I remember being in a presentation by an FBI agent on information security a couple of years ago. He wouldn’t go into details, but he made it very clear that he would never trust anything confidential to any cloud service. Makes me wonder if he already knew about this program.
There should be a national “Google girl on girl action” day.
They’ll never get anything done.
We are living post privacy and individualism. Is this the”Ideals” of which Obama spoke?
We need to pick one of these companies and attempt to end their profitable US market.
If we’re lucky, overseas reaction to this crap will work there too.
Cloud data storage is nuts. Maybe for saved games or something, but not for anything personal.
Also, Windows 8 will keep all your passwords for your wifi and so on stored too on the cloud. It’s awfully convenient, but man.. The worst part is I don’t know if I really trust anything that’s cloud enabled to not actually store it anyway even if you tell it not to.
“Theyre too busy watching American citizens exercising their Constitutional rights, and ignoring the muzzie terrorists.”
Well, individual rights are an impediment to global government, political correctness and whatnot.
wth i am in
I think this may be a factor as to why they failed to act on the Russian intel about the marathon bombers - they are engrossed in the arrogance that they can get whatever tech info they want, damn the Constitution, and that will suffice. And that goes without even getting into who they consider to be a potential terrorist. It means they are ignoring the history of intel operations that thought humanint wasn't important. Those operations tended to fail. Badly.
It is hard to imagine how or why they could, or would, monitor so many
around the world, unless they were suspects in some anti government group.
I take only basic precautions such as using StartPage for search.
I am on a foreign ISP, and I do not visit freaky sites.
Being a regular on FreeRepublic, however, might classify me as an enemy of the state, haha.
....so if the RNC calls you during election time to remind you to vote and Holder has tapped the RNC they now have your info....put together with any donations listed with the Tea Party....anyone you’ve called.....most likely what you’ve said...(don’t believe this BS line about no content recorded or saved)...
Under the Muslim-N-The-WhiteMosque’s orders, no action may be tgken if it might offend a Muslim.
There was more than sufficient data to have justified intervention, but all who might have so done knew the price of so doing.
Islam Is Treason - Sharia Law’s The Reason.
But, we elected a Muslim .........
Well, just how efficient is all this spying,anyway?? They couldn’t stop the Boston bombers or the shooters in Colorado and Sandy hook.... I guess THEY did’nt want to stop them??
Very Very Bad, all this domestic violations of our constitutional rights. so THEY don’t want to stop the BAd guys I guess....
