2 Gigantic New NSA Revelations?


So your NSA file and FBI file should have a lot of interesting stuff in it.
Check it out:

1. PRISM provides real-time access to email and chat.

A couple of days ago, the Washington Post released four more slides from the PowerPoint deck that describes the PRISM program. One of them is on the right, and it explicitly says that PRISM provides NSA analysts with real-time notification of email events and chat logins. The Post rather mysteriously says nothing more about this except that it “reflects the availability, confirmed by The Post’s reporting, of real-time surveillance as well as stored content.”

2. All of your cellphone calls are being recorded.

What Greenwald is saying is that NSA doesn’t just collect records of calls, it actually records a billion cellphone calls per day. Are these domestic calls, or only international calls? If it includes domestic calls, it’s more explosive by an order of magnitude than anything else he’s reported so far. Stay tuned.
