While we're talking about electronic eavesdropping and the technologies associated therewith, here's another article that I found and that a few of you also sent to me. It seems that the CIA (and that means MI-5, Surete, SISME, BND, Mossad, etc) want to spy on you through your television now:
The CIA wants to spy on you through your TV: Agency director says it will 'transform' surveillance Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2115871/The-CIA-wants-spy-TV-Agency-director-says-net-connected-gadgets-transform-surveillance.html#ixzz1pR7TNkWh
Now many of you, I suspect, are like me, and possibly think this is already being done (remember that mandated change a couple of years ago when everyone had to change to HD tv?). Well, here it is straight out of the horse's...er....mouth:
"Everything from remote controls to clock radios can now be controlled via apps - and chip company ARM recently unveiled low-powered, cheaper chips which will be used in everything from fridges and ovens to doorbells.
"The resultant chorus of 'connected' gadgets will be able to be read like a book - and even remote-controlled, according to CIA CIA Director David Petraeus, according to a recent report by Wired's 'Danger Room' blog.
"Petraeus says that web-connected gadgets will 'transform' the art of spying - allowing spies to monitor people automatically without planting bugs, breaking and entering or even donning a tuxedo to infiltrate a dinner party."
I suspect that what is really going on here is simply the usual ploy of the Powers That Be, namely, to talk of something they're already doing, as if it is in the future sometime. Ponder what we have: we have the NSA building a new super-monitoring and decryption facility in Utah, a former general now in charge of the CIA saying it wants to use our manifold interconnected gadgets to spy on us... in short, we are creating an electronic Big Brother to monitor all aspects of private life, the better to maintain the Empire. We're looking at yet an added layer of capability that could, additionally, enhance the capabilities of the "breakaway civilization" that Richard Dolan, I, and others, have speculated about.
Think about that for a moment, in connection with the previous blog about the new NSA super-monitoring and decryption center, for it may not be just human electronic communications they are interested in "cracking" and monitoring.... just a thought....
...see you on the flip side...
