Snowden talks operational details, people die ... as the jihadists have their way ...

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/sep/5/terrorists-tout-new-technology-thwarts-us-intellig/

Terrorists tout new encryption technology that thwarts U.S. intelligence

didn't take long once they had the operational details of how the system works ...

Terrorists and jihadists say they have a new tool to undercut American and Western intelligence — a mobile encryption software system that operates cell phone-to-cell phone, and works on even those devices that aren’t equipped with the technology.

But some doubt the software will really prove as effective as claimed — and won’t harm the ability of the West to infiltrate terrorist cells and obtain intelligence information at all.

“We don’t really know how effective the encryption is or isn’t, because nobody at an official level has publicly disclosed that,” said Evan Kohlmann, a terrorism analyst with NBC. “However, based on our research, it is likely that U.S. intelligence agencies do have the capability to break that encryption when needed.”

When needed, is before you even know who is talking, not after the bomb explodes and you forensically trace it back to an individual and discover he has one of these phones.

I'm beginning to think that operation Snowdon is a cooperative venture between China, Russia, and the USA.
It's a sting operation.
Crippled Technology is being leaked and adopted by people who think that they'll be safe now.

... Crippled Technology is being leaked...

Nah...

This is all just a wake-up call for what was already long ago known.

No 'secrets' have been divulged. It is all just a game of publicity for what we all should already know...


Roll on 1984?

Politics is what we allow it to be...

I think coding in secret backdoors is really silly. All you need is one disgruntled programmer and the cover is blown. It's like s big boys version of the old Easter Eggs in Windows apps.

I do wish people would decide what they want.

Do you want the government to detect those that are in your country but wish you harm or do you want another 9/11?

Actually, that's the tricky tight rope most Americans want the Government to follow..most Americans acknowledge the need for intelligence gathering for national security purposes, as long as it isn't over bearing and infringing on our civil liberties.

The problem is it isn't only being used to go after terrorists.

If it were and there was a time limit on keeping the data ... perhaps, but the government will never be kept in check if it operates from a position of FUD.

To be honest I have been following the Snowden case as it applies this side of the pond. This article in the Gaurdian, GCHQ Tempora sign-off should be investigated, says Chris Huhne.

It shows what what data is kept and for how long, which appears to be different to what happens over there.

The National Security Agency monitored the phone conversations of 35 world leaders after being given the numbers by an official in another US government department, according to a classified document provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Might be overstated, because the Podunk Hollow phone company hasn't modernized to to the point that they can send records to the NSA, something about a manual switchboard ...
