More interesting than what individuals were marked for surveillance would be what corporations had their networking infrastructure bugged. In the
previous piece about the interception of network switches and routers and the installation of NSA "Firmware", I did wonder why this was being done.
After all, the "Terrorists" don't have networks and corporate headquarters that would use such equipment, the business community however, does have
How wonderful it would be for corporate LAN's to be accessible by the NSA. All that insider info on performance, mergers and acquisitions, product
development etc. Very useful, for some people, for getting the inside info for investment purposes and confidential product development roadmaps that
can be sold on to give the edge to favoured customers of that information, foreign or domestic!
It's never been about "Terrorists" at all. That is simply the excuse used for the mass surveillance to sell to the public.
