The NSA Is Scaring Me!
From The Quivering Dog Department:
Ever since Snowden leaked the NSA brouhaha in June - I’ve been a dog on a mission, digging up NSA bones everywhere I can.
My email is packed with alerts on NSA; surveillance; PRISM; XKeyscore.
NOT THAT I HAVE ANYTHING TO HIDE.
But - I do believe in privacy and just like I would not want the NSA taking a shower with me; I do not want them reading my vacation plans either.
So this morning - our company CEO (Jeff) sent me this (must have missed it in my alert deluge) —> NSA’s data reach greater than first thought, says report
These revelations, if proven true, would be reminiscent of claims made by Mark Klein in 2006, who worked as an AT&T technician in San Francisco. Klein blew the whistle on the NSA’s involvement in domestic wiretapping, claiming the agency diverted Internet traffic through a splitter cabinet in a secure room, dubbed “Room 641A,” which was to be used only by NSA personnel.
I remember 2006 when Klien blew that whistle. It was downplayed and eventually buried. That was seven years ago and during the interim -> look how far the NSA has reached. Does that disturb you? It makes me angry and also at the same time -> I fear for my own digital actions. If I search for “one of their keywords” will I be placed on the no fly list? If I meet with a privacy activist, will my friends and family be monitored because of my connection to my activist friend? America is getting scary and pretty soon I fear that there will be no place left to hide.
Please share your thoughts -don’t let me be the only shivering dog shaking like a dustmop here. Type everything in code so that they don’t read it. Friends don’t let friends use clear text…
