Well, they can try. Use the Google machine and search :
"how to spoof cellphone mac address"
"how to spoof cell phone number"
That should take care of much of the problem.
And not only that mate, but anyone with a single brain cell would already know, that includes the goons working for the DHS, that any 'terroist'
domestic or foreign would not be able to be tracked using this kind of system.
Pay as you go phones, each activated only once, and only used once and then dismantled and dumped cannot be tracked, no matter how many off white
boxes are installed.
Nobody is going to be involved in crime, of any sort and use the same phone to conduct their crimes, except for the really naive or stupid...and if
terrorists are so idiotic, we wouldn't have been fighting them for years so far.
No...these are not so-called 'anti-terror' installations.
They, meaning tptb 'they', are quite happy with the way things have gone down with the recent spying leaks, the backlash has been relatively mild,
nowhere near as bad as it could have been, and now being freshly emboldened and full of confidence in their ability to ride roughshod over the US
constitution and the rights and privacy of their countryfolk for all intents and purposes virtually unchallenged, they are now rolling out this
tracking system, not for use against would-be terrorists, as per the often used excuse, they are using this to track and spy on the minute by minute,
second by second movements and daily dealings of ordinary American citizens.
That's it, no terrorists required.
And when this latest atrocity against privacy and rights only attracts a few whimpers and a few banner waving marches and not much else? They'll be
installing the latest version of this tracking tech right there inside every single private home, school, doctors office and probably even in the
church confessional box.
And when that doesn't raise more than a few outraged citizens weakly asking for their rights back...then they'll roll out the next phase..whatever
nighmare that will involve.
