Yes they are !!

The Strategic Information and Operations Center (SIOC) is looking for software !!

And guess why ?

To lurk

To watch you

To identify you

To share data

To monitor trends

To know where you are or will be

AND ..... what else ?



WASHINGTON — The US Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking for a tool to mine social media for intelligence tips.

“Social media has become a primary source of intelligence because it has become the premier first response to key events and the primal alert to possible developing situations,” the FBI request said.

“Intelligence analysts will often use social media to receive the first tip-off that a crisis has occurred,” it said.


criteria

The FBI said the tool “must have the ability to rapidly assemble critical open source information and intelligence that will allow SIOC to quickly vet, identity, and geo-locate breaking events, incidents and emerging threats.”

It would need to be able to “instantly search and monitor key words and strings in all ‘publicly available’ tweets across the Twitter site and any other ‘publicly available’ social networking sites/forums.”

It would also need the ability to “search the data across a myriad of parameters and view terrorist activities by location, terrorist group, and type of attack and see trends and analytics.”

In addition, it would have to be able “to immediately translate into English, tweets and any other open forum publically available social media captured in a foreign language.”


YOU are Wanted -- by the F.B.I.



Who Left the Door Open This Time ??

That's confusing.

The US Goverment has Cyber Command.

That's all the "software" people and hardware one needs for monitoring the internet. This is fishy.

Methinks they want to give the impression they don't do this already.

Facebook and other social networking sites sell your data to private organizations on a daily basis; it's foolish to think they would not give it to the government too.

That is a very good theory !!


Hide what they already do and nobody is the wiser.

And you would think they could get the same software from the other depts as well.

Like the DOD.

Could be a SOPA sidetrack.

Maybe they're setting up a false "need".

You know what would be the cat's meow....

If some engineers from the "other side of the fence" were to design a program that could create false identities and locations and actually "setup" the FBI into thinking something big is happening somewhere.

The FBI would get a raiding party together, kick down a few doors,
Only to find out a gang of sockpuppets are on the loose


All the "suspects" would turn out to be a bunch of android tablets !!
