NSA: All your Verizon data are belong to us…

Evil-verizonThe Guardian newspaper has released the ‘top secret’ full court ruling showing that the US National Security Agency is now collecting the telephone records of tens of millions of Americans.

Lets face it, we have suspected this sort of thing has been going on for a while, but the true extent of the data being collected is astounding.  Telephone numbers, calling card numbers, International Mobile Subscriber Identity numbers (IMSI), International Mobile station Equipment Identity number (IMEI) as well as the time and duration of calls/contact.

The gagging order included in the court order requires that ‘no person shall disclose to any other person that the FBI or NSA has sought or obtained tangible things under this Order’ – thankfully it would seem that the Guardian is not covered by this.

Apparently the NSA, White House, Department of Justice, and Verizon have all declined to comment – though I feel it is safe to assume they have commented privately along the lines of ‘oh shit’.

This, to my knowledge is the widest ranging surveillance order to ever have been issued, at least in the USA. It also brings in to question whether Verizon is the only company hit with one of these orders.

  1. This sort of boundary % black and white is smimteoes quite troublesome. But, I do think it is good to open your blog/journal for comments, coz somehow it is still very encouraging to have people responding to what you have wrote. ^^ eh well, just feel you are a very poor guy having to reply to dozens of messages everyday, which seems never-ending sigh T_T honestly, I feel frustrated whenever I come across comments like these it is just like a cycle newbies step into the gothic lolita field. After acquiring certain knowledge about the scene, they start to fighting against each other verbally with a view to confirm theirselves as an eligible one And one more thing, it’s a trend I guess. Many people nowadays are impulse-driven: Responding without reading and thinking thoroughly about the 6Ws. (that’s why I say you are poor)XDXD~ perhaps let’s put an end to this discussion, shall we? because the next debate will be staged somewhere again one day UNLESS we all learn how to accept and appreciate others. ^^ p.s. my comments are in fact very local and rude( in cantonese~ because I was too tired when I gave the comment~ )
