U.S. Spy Agencies Tap Directly Into Google, Facebook, Yahoo, YouTube, Apple, Skype, AOL?

Seen at :

The National Security Agency, the spy agency which does electronic surveillance for the U.S. government, has been directly tapping into the systems of Google, Facebook, AOL, Yahoo, YouTube, Skype and other Internet organizations, according to a report today in The Guardian, a British newspaper.

The Guardian's report was based on a classified Powerpoint presentation on the program--called PRISM--through which the U.S. government has been covertly collecting information via massive surveillance of the Internet.

"The Guardian has verified the authenticity of the document, a 41-slide PowerPoint presentation--classified as top secret with no distribution to foreign allies--which was apparently used to train intelligence operatives on the capabilities of the program," the paper said. "The document claims 'collection directly from the servers' of major US service providers."

Internet companies contacted by the Guardian denied any knowledge of the secret program.

Google provided a statement to the newspaper that said: "Google cares deeply about the security of our users' data. We disclose user data to government in accordance with the law, and we review all such requests carefully. From time to time, people allege that we have created a government 'back door' into our systems, but Google does not have a back door for the government to access private user data."

Creation of biometric database of all Americans tucked inside proposed immigration bill

Mmmyeahhh, no thank you very much.  From :

I mean, what’s so threatening about  being in the immigration bill, citizen?

The immigration reform measure the Senate began debating yesterday would create a national biometric database of virtually every adult in the U.S., in what privacy groups fear could be the first step to a ubiquitous national identification system.

Buried in the more than  (.pdf)  is language mandating the creation of the innocuously-named “photo tool,” a massive federal database administered by the Department of Homeland Security and containing names, ages, Social Security numbers and photographs of everyone in the country with a driver’s license or other state-issued photo ID.

Employers would be obliged to look up every new hire in the database to verify that they match their photo.

Digital communications U.S. are being sniffed by government surveillance systems

You may be reading this article in the privacy of your own home, but somewhere in a National Security Agency control center your every move is being tracked. What time you logged on this morning, the web site you visited, how long you stayed and even what you said in the comments section – all of it – has been cataloged and possibly even flagged for suspicious activity.

Several years ago, to the disbelief of many, we discussed the tracking and archiving being implemented by the government. We noted that everything you do on a daily basis is being tracked.
