Snowden: NSA Employees Routinely Pass Around Nude Photos Obtained Via Mass Surveillance

George Washington's picture

Edward Snowden just told the Guardian:

Snowden …. Made a startling claim that a culture exists within the NSA in which, during surveillance, nude photographs picked up of people in “sexually compromising” situations are routinely passed around.

NSA employees have also been caught using their mass surveillance powers to spy on love interests, such as girlfriends, obsessions or former wives … and to eavesdrop on American soldiers’ intimate conversations with their wives back home.

By way of background, US and UK intelligence services have gathered millions of webcam images … many nude.  The NSA collects and permanently retains many suggestive photographic images gathered in other ways. And top experts say the NSA is collecting the CONTENT of all of our phone calls and emails.

So NSA employees have access to a lot of nude or suggestive videos, photos, phone calls and emails.

It’s not just NSA … many government agencies have become corrupted.

For example, an employee of the Transportation Security Administration admitted that TSA agents share – and laugh at – nude scans of passengers.

And as we’ve  previously documented:

  • Senior SEC employees spent up to 8 hours a day surfing porn sites instead of cracking down on financial crimes
  • Nuclear Regulatory Commission workers watch porn instead of cracking down on unsafe conditions at nuclear plants
  • Investigators from the Treasury’s Office of the Inspector General found that some of the regulator’s employees surfed erotic websites, hired prostitutes and accepted gifts from bank executives … instead of actually working to help the economy
  • The Minerals Management Service – the regulator charged with overseeing BP and other oil companies to ensure that oil spills don’t occur – was riddled with “a culture of substance abuse and promiscuity”, which included “sex with industry contacts

NSA could make a shit ton of money by publishing the whole thing and make it searchable.  I can already see the porn website:

"NSA Amateur Webcams - So hot and forbidden" - Now you can search for that hot college girl from your neighborhood.  Special section: shower cams from the White House.

Only 19.95 US$ per month!

I wonder whether 4chan can do something with this.

Good thing I shave my beaver, want it to look good if its making its way around the intelligence community.

Wonder if that means I am more likely to get hired.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the whole NSA apparatus was brought down by some worm/virus attached to some porn file downloaded by one of these idiots. Ahh, to dream.

Gee what a surprise. The nation with the most unhealthy attitude about nudity has the spies that collect the most nude pictures.


They probably masturbate with a latex glove on.

Getting PAID for being a pervert!  What a great profession.  Wonder what undergrad classes one has to take for a well-rounded degree?  Is there an advanced degree in whacking the Johnson? 


tolivian's picture

Someone yesterday was bemoaning his future having obtained a degree in burger flipping.

But for the really ambitious parasite, I think EIL has spotted the degree that will get them a job with advancement potential in the SEC, NSA, EPA and/ other major federal agencies. Imagine your career parth: whacking your way to Chief Parasite. You'll be able to have your own off the record email account and access to all the best porn sites (ooops probably shouldn't give away major parts of the courses).

If they are watching porn they won't have time to harass people. Not a bad trade off. 

Titus's picture

I want to know, can anyone blame them? As soon as I got my analyst pass, I'd be hittin' up ScarJo's account and phone like no tomorrow, then off to the bathroom to whack it.

I'm shocked, shocked, to find they're watching porn at the NSA!

The Regression from Desire, to Domination, to Depravity, to Dungeons, and to the Dung heap of Human History:


1.   Aquired or self induced apathy toward the simple fulfilling pleaures of life leads one to find "a quick fix" toward a sense of low self worth

2.   Desire for money to fill the void enters the mind as the sure thing to at last bring fulfillment !

3.   Possession of "the money to fill the void is attained! 

4.   For a time the money buys some possessions and partially fills the void

5.   Then the day surely comes where these "things" lose their ability to quench the remaining void

6.   Thought arises that "more money" and "more things" will at last fill the void

7.   For a time "more money" and "more things" partically quells the thirst which as yet has no ceasing... 

8.   A mental crisis appears as the myth of having and thus being NOT fulfilled appears in the mind but the "act" of appearing fulfilled is holy engaged in...  (BS)

9.   Desire for "control over other people" enters in as the real potential cure for the hunger to simply have satisfaction

10.  Said aquirement of some degree of control over others for a time does appear to fill a "portion of the void." 

11.  Then the day surely comes that even Money AND Control over others begins to lose their ability to even partially quench the thirst of the ailing soul... 

12.  The thought of "more control" over "even more people" enters the mind as the means to attain the ever fleeting simple satisfaction !!

13.  Yet even this too, all the money one could want, and control over massive amounts of people eventually does NOT satisfy ...   But act of appearing satisfied must go on !  (BS BS)

14   "Hello, Jimmy So Vile at your service, can I help you?"     Depravity enters the reeling mind as the thing which can now soothe the void... 

15    For a time even the thought of depravity appears to partially fill the gaping hole in the disfigured individual ... 

16    Then even all the money, control over massive groups of people AND any depravity at the call of a phone (Savile's Services can we help you..) does not provide even simple satisfaction... 

17    Lastly, the only future aquirement which could possibly appear to quench the developed insatiable hunger is "to plan to rule the world... "

18   Since #17 has immeasurable examples of the wrecks of egoistic ambition in the historical rear view mirror, it would appear this goal has never been acheived and many have been left wanting... 

19   And instead of the path of simple peace which passess all understanding, many are led astray one step at a time toward an unquenchable thirst which passess all understanding ....  

20   These specicimens of arrested development occupy a unique place in history of the human family as they are eventually portrayed to new generattions as the examples of what NOT to be

Thanks to information leaked by  Edward Snowden we know the "black budget" last year was a massive 52 billion dollars. This is the money used in "secret" spy operations, and it is enough to send shivers down the back of those that cherish privacy.

This is beginning to look like the society we have read about the totalitarian society of Oceania described in George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. In Orwell's novel, all citizens of Oceania are monitored by cameras and are fed fabricated news stories by the government. More on this subject in the article below.

I once dated an Admiral's Daughter during my Academy Years - just for a few dates during my time Home in Japan.

There was no lasting Chemistry (we just kissed) and she went to a College in Washington State (I was East bound), so I didn't pursue it any further.

Fast forward to 2000. I got hold of an old schoolmate via a MSN Group Site hosting my HS Alumni Class; and found out that he was about to get married. Few minutes later, I get an email from "Her"; and found out that she's been working for the NSA.

We exchanged notes for a day. Found out she's divorced. Nothing more.

For the next few years, in addition to having some Cult stalking and harassing me, I ended up working at Aircraft Repair Depot for the Navy as a GS-12 to weather the Bust. They told me they were up for an SAP Implementation - I was the only person who ACTUALLY WORKED in an SAP ENVIRONMENT - yet they gave me a load of troubled apps and away from the SAP Team (who met in private).

I ran into major problems with a Tool Inventory Mgmt Application which kept crashing and compromising the (absolute) Tool Accountability Standards in Avaiation in August 2001 (yep, I spent September (and 9/11) troubleshooting the situation).

I reported those problems and the related 8yr misappropration of hardware funding (Wall St has HFT, Navy Air had 55 MegaHz - yes, fifty five - that's why it crashed all the time), criminal negligence, contractor kickbacks, govt hacking, and warrant-less wiretapping of my home PC and home.

If I were on active duty, I'd have them fried in an instant. However, they spinned their way out of it, made me into a "Person of Interest", had some NCIS dude and Private Eyes stalk me off work hours, and even tried to set me up on Drug and Prostitution charges (I don't engage in either;but having them set me up on a Confidential Substance Abuse Council and having women standing in front of the Men's Room (ways away from the powder room)whenever I needed to hit the john) was consistent with the "Drug", "Porn" (there was one guy in Security I swear looked like one guy on Playboy TV and the HBO Documentaries there - kept looking at my crotch when I went there for my badge, though), "Gay", and "Insane" Slander/Defamation Racket that still goes on today.

Funny Part of the stalking? They're using NSA LETTERS, Search, Arrest Warrants, and Mock Trials. Some people have tried to contact Internal Affairs; but strings are being pulled from Glendale/Pasadena, Inglewood/ElSegundo/Hawthorne, Gardena/Torrance/Redondo/Hermosa/ManhattanB/PalosVerdes/SanPedro/LongBeach/Anaheim/Irvine.

I have 2 other schoolmates who work/worked for the NSA - plus a few people in the 3rd Social Degree, and even did my first Job Search Post-Navy at an office in Fort Mead.

That Lady I dated? she "poked" me a good number of times on FB, used an old Photo of our Dating Days as a Personal Profile Pic (Avatar) - I didn't mind, nor did respond. Unfortunately, saw one Guy in her Family Photo that looked like a Mormon Proseltyizer who interrupted an Interview I had with L3 Communication's San Diego Think Tank (someone from there hacked my home PC later that week - detected by Security Software and details reported to the Feds), and was spotted talking to Library Staff in Torrance (L3 has a few Plants/Offices there).

Proselytizers are Stalkers. Anyone have any good Lawyers in Mind? I've been hacked/blacklisted/boycotted/stalked even at Trade and Job Fairs; but with rumors that Contractors/Firms (ORACLE, Parsons, SAIC, ING, Boeing, SDS, Anteon, KPMG, Andersen, Deloitte, PWC, SRC, DirecTV, and SpaceX(including their Car-be-que Backers) being hosts to the miscreants - along with State of California Labor/Ed/Dev Networking Groups delaying Brain Drains and Air Force PsyOps being in Deep Shit for( the stunts they allowed (and still do) at the LA Air Force Base BX, Commissary, and AF (and possibly VA Long Beach) Med Clinic, I think it's ripe for one Epic "Officer Sabotage/Cult Slavery/Civil Rights Violation Racket" for the Presses.

All this for Plagiarizing a Financial Reporting App I wrote and for my Saving Lives by ensuring our Flyboys, Repairmen, and Passengers can Fly safely during a Fracking (albeit staged by TEAM_NAC) War.

Even now, the local Cult Monkeys and State Employess wonder WHY I'm gearing to go overseas for Work and Venture Funding.

California is a Failed-State - full of Fruits and Nuts.

PS - I'm serious about the Lawyers. Most are conduct cases in my Active Duty Days - networking with local Cults and major Churches (Calvary Chapel/Rolling Hills/Bay Cities/OverseasHoliness, J4Js, Moonies, Scientology(per Librarians), and Xian Scientists(stalking me from my VAMC back east) etc - slander spread widely). Some have been fried/fired; their doing everything they can to spin this. A few FOIAs would do the trick (they FUBAR'd my Security Clearance Investigation with the Slander).

PS 2 Maxine Waters may have something Personal with my situation - quite possibly since her spouse has the same surname as my Late Father's Ex (who was divorced for infidelity and the accompanied out-of-wedlock-pregnancy in the 50s).

NSA and the FBI - being overrun by Mormons(check out NSA's new Data Collection Hub and Goldman Sachs' IT Backoffice as BYU/Salt Lake City Subsidies, like the Olympics; but much more lucrative and oppressive), JWs, and their Mason buddies. Yes, your privacy isn't just being violated, your Lives may be at risk of direct and indirect exploitation and manipulation (I've had several families enagaged over the years since my Sea Tour of the late 80s).

Tell your bitch girlfriend that NSA-fellatio doesn't make her immune to pitch forks.

Hopefully one day the Constitution doesn't kick her "patriotic" [brainwashed worthless piece of] ass.

IronForge's picture

I hope we can put the Constitution and the Rule of Law against the miscreants.  They've encroached into Federal and Military Space (not to mention County/City level Politics including Los Angeles and Orange County entities) to pull of their Foul Play.  I'm a Whistleblower to the Inspectors General, so I'm ALL UP to Testify before Congress to nail them.   They belong in Prison.

These Cult monkeys are so FUBAR'd.  I want to know who's been passing NSA Letters (along with the (possibly fraudulent)Warrants and Person of Interest Notifications) around.  The Assholes actually set up several "hire to fire" situations in order to sabotage my Career.  Worse yet, when I tried to get a Lawyer, some Negro Gang (w/members living in Gardena) boasted about intimidating Attorneys who I've contacted.  When a group tried to crash an IBM Seminar, some were thrown out(they staged a recall for me to return home) and there were multiple evictions (mostly negro, some asian) and a Police Helicopter floating in the neighborhood when I returned.  Apparently, an asian group either were arrested or "suicided".  According to a VA Doctor (talking to a nurse), some Filipinos tried to pull a "Hit" on me; and were captured as well.

Since there are alleged deaths, suicides, or murders involved (possibly someone affiliated w/ the local Police, if not the NCIS), no one wants to tell me what's going on.   All in Maxine Waters' backyard (IIRC, a relative of a Sailor I fried for theft in Antigua (Black Perp on Black Vic) years ago and affiliated with a local Police may be in on the Fraud).  Just to reiterate how bad the region is becoming with the Economic Meltdown and Brain Drain, Nissan left (Gardena) and Toyota (Torrance - ex-Army Tow Truck Guy as Mayor) announced its departure from the Area.  Honda is not too far behind now.  

No one's telling me directly WTF is going on with these monkeys.  A few good phone calls with Govt Watchdogs, Vet Groups, Pentagon, Service Academy Alumni (mine looks like it's compromised by the Local Chapter Contacts) etc. would have gotten them exposed and fired.  Nothing like taking my elderly Mother to the Commissary for groceries, then getting some baggers' buddies follow me from the Air Force Base and try to run me off the Interstate shortly after.  Allegedly, some arrests have started to happen; but the local spin to sweep appears to be the M.O. there.   Proof that the Sociopaths are running freely here in California.

BTW, She's not my GF!!!  We just dated a few times 25 years ago!!!  I don't mind being acquaintances; but we're never emotionally close, nor have we ever been "romatically intimate" - No Chemistry.  On FB, I've been as polite as I can be to quench any of her efforts to get me more involved with her.  What's worse, IIRC, her brother looks like one of the L3 Stalkers; and a Man with the same surname was on Audio on TV as a Consultant to LAPD years back.  Now I have some Proselytizing Cult groups crashing a State Sponsored Job Networking Group all across LA and Orange County.  ROTFL!!

There's a good chance she's part of the Cult Stalking Racket I never asked for.  I've never been a member of the Mormon Church, JW Hall, Xian Science Study Group (they were trying to force their membership on me at the VAMed Ctr in NJ - by literally changing my "religious affilation" to Christian Scientist - I had to change it every fracking time I checked in for an appt. Stalking and attempted forced proselytization here) or a Scientologist. 

It's vicious in LA.  I've never seen so many liars, thieves, and those who live to circumvent the Rule of Law run amok so much.

I am like the NSA, I like to collect webcam images but mine are ALL nude.  The difference is that I have not found a good method to store millions of pics.  LONG on Tera Byte hard much good porn out there and so little storage space. SIGH.

I wished the Pentagon and the White House would spend more time watching porn instead of planning and executing military actions.  The more porn these agencies watch, the less time they have for evilness!

MDB is one of those super-trolls that is so good that he's worth greening, because I not only doubt that he believes a word he posts, I think he actually posts things that support absurd positions that aren't that far off of what the government is trying to convince us of, and makes a poignant point doing so.

Well, that corroborates my theory that alphabet-agency spooks threatened to reveal nekkid photos of Chief Justice Roberts in compromising positions with his pet goats if he didn't join the commie black-robed pussies in blessing the blatantly-unconstitutional CONgressCare Act.

Why else would a purported strict constructionist ignore the (1) absence of any enumerated power over sick care or insurance in Art 1 Sec 8, (2) absolute prohibition against direct unapportioned TAXes in Art 1 Sec 9 and (3) requirement that TAX bills originate in the House in Art 1 Sec 7?  Maybe those sections of the tattered remnants of that antiquated relic were obscured by elephant & jackass $#!+.

"If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates.  But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this in one instance may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.  The precedent must always greatly overbalance in permanent evil any partial or transient benefit which the use can at any time yield." - George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796

Got usurpations?

Your analysis of the constitutional issues is spot on.  There is also the bright line of the tenth amendment reservation of powers to the states.  Still...

the sorry sack of shit turned traitor, because he and his cunt wife like the cocktail party circuit in DC,  and he would have been black balled forever, as justice Thomas and others have been.  That may seem improbable, and is certainly more perverted than your goat theory, but from everything I know about DC, and have heard since leaving there, it is true.

There must be a special layer of hell reserved...
