How The NSA Hacks Your iPhone (Presenting DROPOUT JEEP)

It’s getting so a guy can’t make a private telephone call, anymore!  ANYWHERE!  OR…

I used to LIKE United States Intelligence.  You remember, the guys on our side who struggled to get information from the guys on their side to keep us safe?  J. Edgar Hoover, Allen Dulles, Some Anonymous NSA Generals…

Except, they found out it was easier to spy on us to keep us “safe” than to spy on the other guys!

Of course, finding where Bin Laden was or info on the Arab terrorists who bombed us mostly didn’t require them spying on us.  Or so we thought.

And then there’s always…

  2. What gets me is the people who think the domestic spying is a good thing. “Well, we need it to fight terrorism!”
    Prior to 9/11/01 the Phoenix FBI office sent a memo to higher-ups in DC saying that numerous arabs were taking a bunch of flying lessons. (As it turned out, they weren’t all that interested in landing)
    They sent a freaking FBI INTERNAL MEMO and it got put on the back burner. So drowning the bureaucracy in illegally collected domestic data is going to make it all better.

    Kinda like any violation of rights, no matter what the good reason, it isn’t a good reason.

  3. Of course, there’s the theory that the more data they collect, the less useful it becomes, and the more difficult to manipulate. But that’s akin to hitting the gas while driving toward the cliff.
