Washington Post Brushes a Few More Prism Crumbs Onto the Floor
Thank you, Master, thank you.
My now familiar and broken-record-response to this thing is to go back to Room 641A last decade if you want a real thrill.
They have beam splitters installed at the peering points. NSA is getting everything. The end.
The media’s repeated ramblings/mantras about the FISA court and protections for Americans are absurd.
For Prism to be a big deal, you’d have to have amnesia, or not understand the implications of those beam splitters. Querying structured data from the regime’s collaborators (Prism) is a tiny piece of what they’re doing.
Ok, so what are some other aspects of the wider surveillance story that I would like to know more about?
One of my long standing theories is that the NSA intercepts represent the front end of something like Synthetic Environments for Analysis and Simulation system. What are they doing with these simulations?
I would like to know more about MAIN CORE.
I’m pretty confident that realtime geolocation data from mobile phones/license plate readers/cameras/??? are being used as a sort of invisible tripwire. If people on the MAIN CORE list happen to stray too close to certain physical locations (critical infrastructure, corporate headquarters, government installations, etc.), that could trigger… shall we say, a variety of responses. This would be very, very trivial to implement.
Is there an automatic mechanism that adds individuals to MAIN CORE? Book purchases, Google searches, websites visited, movie or television watching habits, the number of firearms at a residence???
What is the nature of the quantum computing systems to which NSA has access? Are these one-trick-ponies, like the D-Wave system, or are they the real deal.
Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled programing…
