Yea, I am sure every other writer in America is using that too, and I am sure they can use MS Paint better than me.
So, it looks like all those Lefties running the show today who thought Operation COINTELPRO was the end of the world find more severe measures to be just fine and dandy today.
Seems like every week or two one of these stories leaks out into the wild. So, now it is time to find out that the feds have been vacuuming up Verizon customer data, system wide, in an “effort” to establish patterns between terrorists.
The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk – regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing.
The secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (Fisa) granted the order to the FBI on April 25, giving the government unlimited authority to obtain the data for a specified three-month period ending on July 19.
Under the terms of the blanket order, the numbers of both parties on a call are handed over, as is location data, call duration, unique identifiers, and the time and duration of all calls. The contents of the conversation itself are not covered.
At least in COINTELPRO it was not a wholesale vacuuming of data, they used specific targets. It was most effective at keeping the Weather Underground free, rather than in jail where they belonged. COINTELPRO didn’t catch Ron Kaufman either.
