The NSA Is Tracking Your Porn Browsing

Tyler Durden's picture

Ed Snowden's latest revelation may leave SEC officials quaking as the NSA "has been gathering records of online sexual activity and evidence of visits to pornographic websites as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations of those whom the agency believes are radicalizing others through incendiary speeches." Of course, as we have seen, this 'information' would never be used by the government for non-radical-terrorist suppressing reasons, as the ACLU notes, is is "an unwelcome reminder of what it means to give an intelligence agency unfettered access to individuals' most sensitive information using tactics associated with the secret police services of authoritarian governments."

 

Via Snowden...

The National Security Agency has been gathering records of online sexual activity and evidence of visits to pornographic websites as part of a proposed plan to harm the reputations of those whom the agency believes are radicalizing others through incendiary speeches, according to a top-secret NSA document.

 

The document, provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, identifies six targets, all Muslims, as “exemplars” of how “personal vulnerabilities” can be learned through electronic surveillance, and then exploited to undermine a target’s credibility, reputation and authority.

 

The NSA document, dated Oct. 3, 2012, repeatedly refers to the power of charges of hypocrisy to undermine such a messenger.”

Full ACLU Statement:

The NSA considered discrediting six people by revealing surveillance evidence of their online sexual activity, visits to pornography websites, and other personal information, according to a report today in The Huffington Post. The article cited documents leaked by former NSA contactor Edward Snowden. The targets of the NSA’s plan were all Muslims whom the NSA characterized as “radicals” but who were not believed to be involved in terrorism. The documents say one of the targets was a “U.S. person,” a term describing American citizens and legal permanent residents, but all of the targets were reportedly outside the United States.

 

American Civil Liberties Union Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer had this reaction:

 

“This report is an unwelcome reminder of what it means to give an intelligence agency unfettered access to individuals' most sensitive information. One ordinarily associates these kinds of tactics with the secret police services of authoritarian governments. That these tactics have been adopted by the world’s leading democracy – and the world’s most powerful intelligence agency – is truly chilling.”

Yes, you too.

It's okay, we all do it. Only the hypocrites need to worry.

Perhaps you should ask the goats and sheep if they think these "radicals" are terrorists or not...

Those that came up with this plan, while supposedly working for us, are both evil and stupid. 

Evil...

You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a
wicked man to be a malicious witness. You shall not fall in with the
many to do evil, nor shall you bear witness in a lawsuit, siding with
the many, so as to pervert justice, nor shall you be partial to a poor
man in his lawsuit.

Stupid...

An ad hominem (Latin for "to the man" or "to the person"[1]), short for argumentum ad hominem, is a general category of fallacies in which a claim or argument is rejected on the basis of some irrelevant fact about the author of or the person presenting the claim or argument.

Whoever came up with this plan are evil and stupid.

 

You can say that again.  If Snowden knew this, all NSA agents do and they are following the evil leader.  How can they live with themselves?

These people are clearly dangerous terrorists, cannot be trusted,
and everything that they say is a lie, because...
they look at porn on the internet.

Mrs. Thong is going to be awfully pissed when I tell her the feds have her dominatrix dispositions profiled because of her Internet use.

Beam Me Up Scotty's picture

Soon they will be calling asking if she will whip their ass for them.  She can punish them at that time.

They were already tracking 4chan /s before I got there.

Four chan's picture

if you eliminated porn from the net, there would be one website left.

and that website would be www.bringbacktheporn.com.

Manthong's picture

Crap, now they are trying to recruit her for Interrogator duty.

They can't trace anything to me.   I only watch porn on my work computer at the SEC.

If it was only just about malicious eavesdropping on everyone for the motivation of coercion through blackmail which is clearly bad enough, it pales in comparison when you put it into context with this -

Happy Thanksgiving

I have nothing to hide, and I thank you for posting that link. It's good to be reminded, frequently, the horror we unleash in the name of self-interest / profit / american exceptionalism / capitalism. Sorry, you can't separate the 2.

Sorry to say that I cannot separate them, as I think we need to look at all of these acts in their entirety since the Patriot Act and NDAA came into existence.

If you're ex-military or active and you've read what's in the NDAA at least, you would know the battlefield no longer has any borders.

After all. We certainly know who the "terrorist" is?

Ranger4564's picture

I may not have been clear before. I agree with you.

Headbanger's picture

The irony here is that porn is what paid for the internet in the early days!

Ans I suppose all us subscribers to Playboy, Hustler and Penthouse magazines many years ago in the old days are on the list!

What a fucking joke!   Go out and do something useful like catch car thieves and murderers with all this technology!

Where's the leverage in that?

Some early online pioneer on a trade show receiving an award
from a than influential publication making a press speech : " 80 % of our customers use our equipment to watch dirty pictures (porn today, end of quote in this interview ) and he went on that
this acceptance means we are on to something, cause nothing else rules the world... Nobody dared to listen to this
tribesmen straight out of NYC.

He got the message and went public with a big NASDAQ scam.

But you clicked away from those animalistic interracial
depiction of human like sexual intercourse ? They have
your moves recorded and dare you say in a show trial you
don`t feel guilty for the racist you are...

One big problem with their blackmail plans.... by the time they have to use them the NSA/USA have lost all credibility and trust anyway around the globe.

"I visited which site?  Prove it.  You have records?  Prove the data was not manipulated."

icanhasbailout's picture

That was my reaction, too. How are they going to show evidence of this and be believed?

"How are they going to show evidence of this and be believed?"

 

It worked for them on 9/11

icanhasbailout's picture

There's been a global awakening since then, which will only spread. If the NSA pulls this on anybody they're only going to harm their own reputation further.

Frank N. Beans's picture

NSA only does this because it CAN do this.

They got all that computer horsepower so they figure why not use it. 

Fuck the morality of it.  NSA has no morals.

 

fonestar's picture

Not true.  Most people outside the United States never believed the official 9/11 report from the start.

And yet the puppet masters have still achieved their goals.

A majority of people IN the US don't believe the official line on JFK's death either but that's the story in the history books.

All of the NSA and CIA's power is entirely reliant on the continuation of the dollar paradigm.

You think China is using BTC to undermine the USD? Is that the goal?

fonestar's picture

That would be a good move (if they are confident they have enough gold accumulated).

Most new computers have inbuilt cameras that are always on...watching YOU.

Sound too!!

(Tape over the camera and Mic if you are not using it)

And then there are all those smart TVs. you know, the ones that see you and hear you so you can tell it what you want to watch. And then sell your preferences to someone else so you get appropriate ads. (I wonder what kind of ads one gets after viewing porn sites?) And then, of course, some TVs snoop thorough your files (well, only the names, they say) and let someone know of all the episodes of Game of Thrones you've illegally acquired. 

So...be careful what you do in front of the TV set. It doesn't matter if you're with your spouse, or boyfriend(s) or girlfriend(s), be careful. Doubly so if you invite that 10-year-old neighbor over for some lemonade. 

Somethimes I think that our only hope is a massive EMP to destroy all electronics, but that would raise a whole set of new problems.

cynicalskeptic's picture

Orwell would be astounded.  Big Brother got the masses to PAY FOR and INSTALL THE EQUIPMENT THAT SPIES ON THEM.

HELL.... WITH FACEBOOK, TWITTER and all else, people are self reporting, giving Big Brother all the info it could want on their behavior.

Soon, the peopel that DON'T participate in 'social media' will be 'suspect'

I try to cover evidence of anything since I was born (my first felony crime) since this post got made public.

If the targets are important, they're trying to find out what type of honeypot will be irresistible.  Recording the ensuing "date" would be rather useful, especially if they're married or have unusual tastes.

FuzzyDunlop21's picture

Do they have a special server farm dedicated to collecting the records of SEC employees?

BillyTheBlade's picture

How am I supposed to get any reading done with all of this smoking hot trim in all the ads in the margins of this site?

fonestar's picture

It's okay they won't be able to divulge this after an EMP right?

Hey Fone,
The NSA knows your favorite site is http://meatspin.com

They tracked all your bitCon donations. 'iFoneStar'.

Over.
