It's really disappointing seeing what extremes my own Govt. goes to in the name of "safety"... They act like a stalkerish ex-gf who is peaking into every aspect of your life. This Govt. hasn't been "by the people, for the people" in a VERY LONG time. Its all agenda driven with under-the-table handshakes. I hate using cliche's but the more layers you peel off this onion the stinkier it does get...

To my Govt., you continue to let me down at every turn. I wish I was proud of you all and your actions, but I'm not. The older/wiser I get, the more sad/angry I grow with you....

Why do we still have terrorist attacks that seem like a surprise?
How did those mass jail breaks happen without them being prepared for it?

What's the point of all this surveillance if it doesn't prevent anything?

And if it did prevent something tragic, wouldn't they brag about it to convince us it's a good idea?
Why wouldn't they if they specifically choose not to defend it?

All I have are questions mostly.

Because US need an enemy
See first
The point is blackmailing, control, power

Don't get me wrong, I don't want any of this to be used on US citizens.
edit on 31-7-2013 by elouina because: (no reason given)


That must be 300 secret prisoners in secret investigations with secret evidence within secret courts. Are the prisons all secret too? I count heads at Gitmo and there aren't even a few I could say came from this program for timelines and dates. So....Where would those 300 desperadoes be off to, I wonder?

Or...could they just be lying like a cheap rug and pulling numbers out of their imagination because they sound good..and no one ever intends to support a single bit of it publicly? Oh, I love a Government that lies on the SMALL things when the truth would actually serve them better. They THEN expect us to believe a word they say about something important?
They're funny sometimes.

Well very valid points. In front of Congress... Gen Alexander said it had stopped 50 attacks. When pressed he could only name 1. It turns out the one he named was found out by other means and not PRISM OR XKeyscore.

They are lying.. It is as simple as that and are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure the program(s) continue.


Too much money is at stake.. Too many people employed to have it any other way.

Real-Time Regional Gateway (RT-RG)

It is tied into the NSA/CSS and special forces. Is there a story behind Petraeus Scandal not being reported by Donoilon to the President here? That would be General Petraeus sex scandal with NSA operative Paula Broadwell and NSA Thomas Donilon not reporting the issue to President Obama until after he won the election. PRISM scandals birth? So is all this coming out because Obama did not like what happened and sent Snowden on a secret mission from the White House?

So...

Now that the cat is out of the bag, how do we get our hands on this software? I have a few ex girlfriends I'd like to peek in on and see what they're up to these days.

Programs like this could be HEAVILY abused by bored analysts.

"Hm...lets see what Nancy Pelosi has been up to the past few days...oooo she has a thing for feet? I'll have to remember that for later..."

Now anyone can be blackmailed. As I read in another thread on here, the average person commits 3 crimes a day (most unknowingly). Well, the NSA can know and find out.

I still want a copy of that software though...

Holy hamburgers Batman, they are tracking people by their MAC Addresses that made the back of head explode! They are even getting PGP encryption, I knew that the encryption protocols available to the public aren't safe but damn!

Oh well. At this point we watch them while they are watching us. It's like jeez, you guys are really going that far, we have to find a way to turn that strength into a weakness. Nice to see that the USAF have a hand in this..

I've been watching for a long time

I for years got this burning question. If you see what is capable with all the tech. They can basically most probably read a number plate from space. Every foot of this earth is scanned a couple of times over every minute. They can find a "possible threat" in a crowd on the other side of the world but they can not find a missing person is say the desert or the position of a sinking ship. These tech analyze everything and report on irregularities. All above should be that but they never assist. Just so funny. I say they just do not wanna help each other

They won't stop it because they want it. It's the sick part that I don't want to believe but is likely the case, they are involved in peddling it. Not to say all of those employed in the sector, but there's a lot of corruption that allows it to continue because it's bought.

Here is one to add onto that list.

If all of what you ask is true, and it is, this started with 9/11.

So if the goal was to surveill us 24/7 and it started with 9/11 then
it seems that the ones surveilling us are responsible for the cause...

Just saw this on Twitter, was surprised I didn't see it on ATS this morning (guess I checked a little before it was posted). I can't believe the amount of disclosure that's happening every single day. This is really mind blowing. All this is coming out. What else are we going to find out in only a few days? In the next weeks?

Have been watching David Wilcock's show on Gaiam TV and starting to get more and more convinced...and his website has a lot to say about disclosure, including that it's orchestrated, that we're getting certain info at certain times as part of a big disclosure plan (link).

It makes you wonder--if all this stuff is coming out, stuff that people used to think you were crazy for believing--I remember just last year many of my friends thinking I was crazy for suggesting that we were all being monitored online, all the time--it really pushes the envelope and makes you wonder what else might be true. Aliens having contact with human governments seems less and less far off every day...

Not to go off topic, but Apple needs to have the bio-scanner feature for NFC capabilities - you know, so your phone can be your credit card. (Not that I agree, just pointing it out). Carry on.
