For a while now I've been seeing/hearing all of these allegations that the NSA is collecting all sorts of data on US citizens and using it for allegedly nefarious purposes. The thing is... I can't find a single case where data collected by the NSA has actually been used against a citizen. Am I to believe that every instance in which they have used this data they've collected has been swept under the rug and out of any public view?
Does someone happen to have an example they can point to where any of this kind of thing has actually come into play?
They've used Skype records to capture a few undesirables here and there.
Looking for a while now / NSA data for the U.S. citizens of all kinds of evil for the purpose of collecting and using claims all such claims heard. Problem ... The data collected by the NSA, I actually used in a civil case can not be found. Sirs, I am using the data that they collect all the instances in which the public's view of the carpet hwipsseulga going to think? Nice news ..
I'll start with news about NSA employees spying on lovers. The NSA uses some acronyms such as HUMINT (human intelligence) and SIGINT (signal intelligence) to describe different means of gathering intel. There is also the unofficial acronym LOVEINT (intel on lovers) which I provide news links about below:
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has plenty more to say on the topic, which you can find at www.eff.org
One final thought: absolute surveillance is a tyrannical government's dream world. Now that we've built a tyrant's dream, the only thing left to create a miserable society is for the tyrant to wake up to find that dream has become reality.
Johnny3D, I'm surprised you didn't hear about this one: https://www.networkworld.com/news/2013/093013-nsa-nacchio-274344.html. The former CEO of Quest Communications claimed for years he was framed by the NSA on a bogus charge of insider trading just because he refused to comply with the NSA's demands to allow them to spy on his customers. He spent four and a half years in prison because he wouldn't roll over for them the way that Verizon, Sprint and AT&T did, but was prohibited from using this information in his defense because the NSA's activities were "classified." If it happened once, it has surely happened many times since, but we just haven't been made aware or it.
Really? The data collection program was supposed to be secret, so, obviously, uses of the data was supposed to remain secret, too.
Their system is a more technologically advanced version of the East German secret police. Look up "Stasi" in Wikipedia and you will see the sort of intimidation tactics that are the flipside of this data collection. It is all about staying in power in spite of extreme corruption and tends to create a vicious cycle of increasing surveillance/intimidation to cover progressively more heinous behavior. Eventually the population got fed up with the whole mess and had a peaceful revolution.
Caspar Bowden, however, seems smart. You should learn from his example.
Speaking of Insider Trading, I bet the NSA is rife with it. They have the relevant information, the SEC isn't policing them, and we have seen that they obviously can't regulate themselves.
