NYT published more Snowden papers today:

NSA SSL encryption software name: "BULL RUN"
GCHQ encryption software name: "Edgehill"
NSA SSL encryption software version 2 (new version) name: "Manassa"

1st battle of American civil war: Battle at BULL RUN near Manassa.
1st battle of British civil war: Battle of Edgehill.

Just coincidence or are they just joking?

I thought that surveillance was allowed just for alien terrorists?

Why then did they call their NSA and GCHQ software "CIVIL WAR"?
Do you have any idea?

They call the software names taken from previous civil wars in our respective countries, because THAT is exactly the reason for the current spying on civillians...they are afraid the public will overthrow our governments, so the connection with the names of the software and civil war is right there.

You have to love the irony at work here.

1. Afraid of its citizens over throwing the government.
2. Illegally and secretly spy's on citizens to prevent aforementioned overthrowing of government.
3. Citizens find out and are really unhappy about it *GASP* government gets rightfully worried.

Logical failure here?!?!

How about keep the citizens happy, do what you say you are going to and stick to the agreed rules created by your very own citizens!

I just wonder how long people will let this go on. And to which point this spying will grow untill somebody does decide to do something about it?

The part of the puzzle that is missing, is how what kinds of information is considered "harmless" which is then sold to large marketing company's so they can create even more clever ways to advertise crap we dont need to us in more ways to make it seem like we do need it.

Thats the side of big brother i think is potentially more immoral than simply collecting private data without consent or warrant.
