NSA Bulk Phone Metadata Collection Ruled Illegal

US Court of Appeals rules NSA bulk phone metadata collection illegal

From Electronic Products

“At the same time, new legislation seeks to reengineer and reintroduce the expiring provision under the guise that surveillance should continue for the good of national security sans the bulk data collection enabled by Section 215. The proposal will still permit the collection of metadata from every call made by anyone in the US, but it will now be stored by the phone companies themselves, and only be made available to the government if issued a warrant by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) Court.”

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

From THE BLAZE 

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 Internet is abuzz with reports of mysterious devices sprinkled across America—many of them on military bases—that connect to your phone by mimicking cell phone towers and sucking up your data. There is little public information about these devices, but they are the new favorite toy of government agencies of all stripes; everyone from the National Security Agency to local police forces are using them.

These fake towers, known as “interceptors,” were discovered in July by users of the CryptoPhone500, one of the ultra-secure cell phones released after Edward Snowden’s leaks about NSA snooping. . . . Read Complete Report

Video of the Day: Teens are baffled by ’90s Internet

The Fine Brothers (TheFineBros) recently put up this Youtube video in which teens react to 1990’s internet technology. The video is worth watching, yes, and the 4.8 million views seems to indicate some level of success for the production. But I got stuck reading through the nearly 18,000 comments. I’m sure the NSA controllers have a robot app for that.

 

NSA Surveillance, Killer Drones, and Your Cell Phone

How the NSA uses SIM cards to mistakenly kill civilians

The president’s opinion

Despite the operator’s claims, the Obama administration insists that terrorists are killed with high precision. The president iterated during his speech at the National Defense University last May that a high degree of certainty is employed when target selection, ““by narrowly targeting our action against those who want to kill us and not the people they hide among, we are choosing the course of action least likely to result in the loss of innocent life.” Yet the increased reliance on phone tracking is contrary to this claim

Former drone operator’s testimony echoes information in leaked NSA documents

When speaking about his former colleague, the JSOC operator says “people get hung up that there’s a targeted list of people, it’s really like we’re targeting a cell phone. We’re not going after people — we’re going after their phones, in the hopes that the person on the other end of that missile is the bad guy.” His testimony of JSOC mission policies echo information revealed in the NSA documents leaked by Edward Snowden along with the criticism made by former drone sensor operator with the U.S. Air Force, Brandon Bryant.

State senator says ‘the NSA isn’t welcome in Arizona unless it follows the Constitution’

“I believe the number one priority for national security is defending and protecting the Constitution,” the Republican who represents the Lake Havasu City area of northwest Arizona said in a statement. “Without that, the rest becomes irrelevant.
