Says he has issues with both but believes Clinton is a better choice but still won’t endorse her either.

On August 15, General Michael Hayden, the former head of the CIA and NSA, said Donald Trump has “autocrat envy.” Hayden was one of 50 officials from past Republican administrations who signed a letter labeling Donald Trump a risk to America’s “national security and well-being.”

Seems like this type of stuff been going on forever with no viable solution in sight. These guys did not work for the airport, which shows the airport’s management team and owners were too cheap to properly screen and hire honest workers so they left it into the hands of independent contractor. They are trying to recover items from the defendants homes, but most of the stolen stuff has probably been hocked and turned into cash already.

NSA’s Super Spy Center May Be Preparing To Monitor The World

via Foolocracynsa_20data-mining_facility

At an old Sony factory in San Antonio, the National Security Agency is making plans for a huge data-mining facility, the Texas Cryptology Center. The 470,000 square foot center will allow the NSA to identify potential terrorists from intercepted phone calls and emails.

For civil libertarians, the frightening aspect of the facility is its size and room for growth.

“No longer able to store all the intercepted phone calls and e-mail in its secret city, the agency has now built a new data warehouse in San Antonio, Texas,” writes author James Bamford in the Shadow Factory, his third book about the NSA. “Costing, with renovations, upwards of $130 million, the 470,000-square-foot facility will be almost the size of the Alamodome. Considering how much data can now be squeezed onto a small flash drive, the new NSA building may eventually be able to hold all the information in the world.” Continue reading

Bush Wants to use Domestic Satellites for Spying on US Citizens

Eye in the Sky

Because of the administration’s poor handling of the electronic spying program (mainly conducted by the super-secret National Security Agency, which operates a worldwide web of electronic eavesdropping systems), Harman says she and other members of Congress will be more cautious about accepting civil-liberties assurances from administration officials. “We have to make sure this is not a back door for spying on Americans,” Harman told Newsweek.

Harman said that she had discussed the administration’s plans for expanding domestic use of picture-taking spy satellites—which are supposedly capable of taking very high-resolution photographs of buildings, vehicles and people—with Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. According to Harman, he promised strict procedures to protect the rights of Americans, including obtaining court authorization for law enforcement-related surveillance operations where appropriate. Despite Chertoff’s assurances, however, Harman said that Congress probably would not fully approve the program until the administration is more explicit about how it would operate.

While Americans were busying snatching up the last items on their Christmas shopping lists, the U.S. Senate was one step closer to protecting various cellphone/wireless carriers who allegely collaborated with the US Goverment in their illegal phonetap/spy program.  They are passing legislature that will protect these companies from any further legal action.  The greenlight not only extends to wiretapping of phone services but also internet connections.  Here’s what they had to say: “The language is crafted broadly enough to shield not only traditional telephone companies and Internet service providers, but e-mail providers, search engines, and instant-messaging services too. And the legal shield would apply not only to corporate cooperation with programs run by the National Security Agency, but also any activities at the CIA, the Defense Department, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the Defense Intelligence Agency, the State Department, the Treasury Department, Homeland Security and other intelligence-related organizations.”  To read the full story about this invasion of your privacy read HERE.
