Barack Obama’s National Security Agency (NSA) is tracking the location of hundreds of millions of cell phones by tapping into the global networks of their providers, according to new documents leaked by former NSA analyst Edward Snowden.
In other words Big Brother isn’t just collecting your emails, texts, internet searches and phone records … he’s tracking you.
And while the records stored from this mass surveillance program – estimated to total 5 billion per day – are not supposed to include domestic devices, government officials acknowledge such surveillance occurs “incidentally.”
Oh, and if you’re among the millions of Americans who travel abroad each year … you are being tracked, too.
The practical application of this technology is truly frightening.
“In scale, scope and potential impact on privacy, the efforts to collect and analyze location data may be unsurpassed among the NSA surveillance programs that have been disclosed since June,” The Washington Post reported. “Analysts can find cellphones anywhere in the world, retrace their movements and expose hidden relationships among the people using them.”
With each passing day, America slips further away from the “land of the free” and find itself more squarely occupying the realm of Nouveau Nazism.
In no respect is this more evident than its Orwellian domestic surveillance network – which, incidentally, is strongly supported by South Carolina’s “Republican” U.S. Senator, Lindsey Graham.
