Investigator Says He Found Multiple ‘Fake Cell Towers’ Near White House, Russian Embassy


Think about the phone conversations you’ve had in the last 48 hours. Is there anything personal or sensitive you wouldn’t want a stranger to hear or record?

Now imagine the cell phone conversations that took place about the Islamic State this week between lawmakers, their staff members and anyone who testified on the Hill. Think any sensitive information or key plans were discussed during those phone calls?

An investigator looking into the claims that “fake cell towers” are popping up all over the country says he discovered several active sites just in the last 48 hours within feet of the White House, around the Russian Embassy and covering the Senate buildings where key Islamic State hearings took place this week. . . .

The goal of the US government’s massive spying programs is not “public or national security but intimidation and blackmail,” says Linh Dinh, a political analyst and writer.

On Wednesday, British newspaper the Guardian reported that documents provided by American whistleblower Edward Snowden show the US National Security Agency is using a secret tool, called XKeyscore, to collect data on nearly all online activities of a typical Internet user with no prior authorization.
The documents describe the secret program as the “widest reaching” system which can gather intelligence from computer networks. . . . Read Complete Report

NSA Declassifies Secret Document After Publishing It

from Secrecy News

May 14th, 2012 by Steven Aftergood


The National Security Agency last week invoked a rarely-used authority in order to declassify a classified document that was mistakenly posted on the NSA website with all of its classified passages intact.

The article is a historical study entitled Maybe You Had to Be There: The SIGINT on Thirteen Soviet Shootdowns of U.S. Reconnaissance Aircraft.  It was written by Michael L. Peterson and was originally published in the classified journal Cryptologic Quarterly in 1993.
