If you use Tor or any of a number of other privacy services online or even visit their web sites to read about the services, there’s a good chance your IP address has been collected and stored by the NSA, according to top-secret source code for a program the NSA uses to conduct internet surveillance.
There’s also a good chance you’ve been tagged for simply reading news articles about these services published by Wired and other sites.
This is old news unless you get your information from television or traditional news media, inwhich case welcome to armpit of American intelligence.
The XKeyscore rules reveal that the NSA tracks all connections to a server that hosts part of an anonymous email service at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It also records details about visits to a popular internet journal for Linux operating system users called “the Linux Journal – the Original Magazine of the Linux Community”, and calls it an “extremist forum”.
Yeah almost as extreme as pointing high powered rifles at BLM agents, because real Muricans know what real Murica needs.
Is it possible, just possible, that America not have to keep appearing as a nation of dumb asses??
One expert suggested that the NSA’s intention here was to separate the sheep from the goats — to split the entire population of the Internet into “people who have the technical know-how to be private” and “people who don’t” and then capture all the communications from the first group.
