Following a report last week that Iran is spying on domestic internet users with western-supplied technology, advocacy groups are pressuring federal lawmakers to scrutinize the use of the same technology in the U.S.

The Open Internet Coalition sent a letter to all members of the House and Senate urging them to launch hearings aimed at examining and possibly regulating the so-called deep-packet inspection technology.

Two senators also announced plans to introduce a bill that would bar foreign companies that sell IT technology to Iran from obtaining U.S. government contracts, legislation that is clearly aimed at the two European companies that reportedly sold the equipment to Iran.

The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Nokia Siemens Networks, a joint venture between Germany’s Siemens and Finland’s Nokia, recently gave Iran deep-packet inspection equipment that would allow the government to spy on internet users.

So European nations sold or gave this technology to Iran, and they are using it to spy on protesters who are internet users, but it doesn't end there. The U.S. will also be using this technology to monitor online use by whomever they want to monitor.

Well, soon the label "gestapo thought police" will come true even in the U.S.

For crying out loud....can't some of the government agents JUST START WORKING FOR THE PEOPLE INSTEAD OF TREATING ALL AMERICANS AS POSSIBLE TERRORISTS???.....

On one hand, it seems as though the US is attempting to re-route all supplies to a safer location. On the other hand, we have to make sure schools are getting all the educational tools needed this year. But we all can be 100% sure that Iran is ready to dish it out and not even Bob Evans can feed that man!!
