NSA Phone Surveillance Tool Can Play Back Conversations In Time

Once again, there's little about the NSA programs that surprise me any longer.

The National Security Agency has built a surveillance system capable of recording “100 percent” of a foreign country’s telephone calls, enabling the agency to rewind and review conversations as long as a month after they take place, according to people with direct knowledge of the effort and documents supplied by former contractor Edward Snowden.

A senior manager for the program compares it to a time machine — one that can replay the voices from any call without requiring that a person be identified in advance for surveillance. NSA Phone Surveillance Tool Can Play Back Conversations In Time [washingtonpost.com]

Wonder about the application of that technology here at home...no wonder, really. Seems like the data is out there, just sifting through it is an interesting and expensive undertaking I would think. And, what our tax dollars are being used for. Right?

I think the technology has been around for quite a while, its the huge reduction in cost of storage and the size of the storage media that makes it cost effective.

Just say "beadwindow code 6" while on the phone, they'll come to your house.

I think we need something to combat the "no expectation of privacy" argument.


simple, cheap, easy, *personal* encryption would be one way to challenge the argument that phone users and and email users have no expectation of privacy.

Early monitoring systems could be crashed if too many people used the right keyword.

"Land of the free" I think its time that line is deleted. The money spent on surveillance tech/resource in the US, is enough for a whole country BNP. The US people are such great folks, but something changes as soon you look at the politics people,.. those are just not the same folks.

I think you can say that about most countries.
