The NSA’s domestic spying program, known in official government documents as the “President’s Surveillance Program,” (“The Program”) was implemented by President George W. Bush shortly after the attacks on September 11, 2001. The US Government still considers the Program officially classified, but a tremendous amount of information has been exposed by various whistle blowers, admitted to by government officials during Congressional hearings and with public statements, and reported on in investigations by major newspaper across the world.
In the weeks after 9/11, President Bush authorized the National Security Agency (NSA) to conduct a range of surveillance activities inside the United States, which had been barred by law and agency policy for decades. When the NSA’s spying program was first exposed by theNew York Times in 2005, President Bush admitted to a small aspect of the program—what the administration labeled the “Terrorist Surveillance Program”—in which the NSA monitored, without warrants, the communications of between 500-1000 people inside the US with suspected connections to Al Qaeda.
Nobody is secure online !
No matter you have monster Secured Sever, but agencies such as NSA already exits there, NSA isn’t the only one but such activities are very commonly practiced via Social Networks – Spy agencies are good at making and giving false reasons such as FACEBOOK and TWITTER, commonly used social platforms they aren’t owned by individuals but well planted by the agencies to monitor activities.
People in USA and UK doesn’t have so called privacy anymore – The NSA warrantless surveillance controversy (“warrantless wiretapping”) concerns incidental surveillance of persons within the United States who were in contact with “terrorists” during the collection of foreign intelligence by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) as part of the war on terror. Under this program, referred to by the Bush administration as the “terrorist surveillance program”, the NSA was authorized by executive order to monitor, without search warrants, the phone calls, Internet activity (Web, e-mail, etc.), text messaging, and other communication involving any party believed by the NSA to be outside the U.S., even if the other end of the communication lies within the U.S.
Social Networks are being used as the platforms to reach out the masses gathering information, long lost days of 007 James Bond are over since people has chosen to upload their information by themselves, right after US – UK followed the footsteps and now 1 billion people are being monitored.
Google also plays its vital role by existing in Android Tablets ( Open Source ) platform firmware, The Program was extended across the world, by providing free softwares , applications , online social networking to spy easily. Pakistan Stands number 1 priority on the list – The fabricated war was in the neighbouring country Afghanistan but surveillance was setup for Pakistan, due to its geographical importance and the only Islamic country with the Nuke.
Anything online is not secure, try keeping your precious data offline and prefer to not connect that portable drive when your online. These social networks are playing the role of social monsters be thankful you and I still have something so called privacy in west everyone is naked in front of the agencies like NSA .
– Do not upload your family images
– Do not add up family members on social network
– The best way is to Misdirect trust me we all can
– Their eyes are on Pakistan and specially us those who are giving them tough time
– Your Smart phones are really smart !
– It’s not just the media but net is where your wired up.
The Internet is no longer safer or better for anyone, people worrying about their passwords and accounts which makes them appear online and offline, social interaction but what’s on the other side of the wall? Google makes multiple copies of your email in others data packets they are stored in various locations in easy words ( SERVERS ) which keeps all the data – It would our biggest mistake to think Google , Facebook , Twitter, Youtube etc.. they don’t have such thing as Spying, but over the time you will find several references on the world wide web only if you just search and seek for the evidence, which I am primarly trying to focus on that, these Social Networks are playing vital role and It doesn’t matter what your privacy status is, you are already being tabbed !
NSA just needs reason to believe that’s it and your taken ! warrantless suspect, The People USA are already victim of it being no where close to the terrorist activities, you must have heard about UK that in London a single invidual caught on CCTV ( Camera ) least 150 times per days that’s an average, because they have surveillence cameras placed like street lights through which they monitor the activities of the masses.
But what happens once you are off the street – that’s my point here !
I will continue on this subject with the technical people related to the web, surely they will guide more much better regarding what can be done and what is happening, yet these social networks are never friendly source for anyone, they can be used positive and negative as well at the same time.
