NSA;s time machine. kind of
NSA's data collection system is all encompassing.
They collect everything. copy internet, emails,
phone calls, radio. TV.
They didn't target European leaders, they collect
everyones data, they don't have a method to filter
out leaders cell phones & emails, to do that they would
need to know those specific phone numbers and erase
them after collection.
Its like they are collecting the water over Niagara falls,
and want to exclude one specific cubic foot of water
coming over the falls, European leaders phone calls.
The collection of this data isn't only to
try and stop terrorist but to function like a time
machine for the PAST.
After an attack they can go back and and read
perps email even phone calls to root out associates,
even if they were erased, they have a copy.
NSA's Stuxnet can walk thru all known security
suites, NSA is in the best position to safe guard
this data, the phone companies DO NOT have the
security NSA has.
Russia and China would love to have access to
NSA screwed up real bad they knew about Manning's
breach, they were implementing a program to track
even what data system admins were looking at
and did not fast track it.
The holy grail for the Russians is the Stuxnet delivery
system, it could shut down Russia, economy and
A big question is if Snowden got access to the
Stuxnet blue prints, eventually Ed will provide
Russia with every thing he knows and has,
A Stockholm syndrome tour deforce; FSB
works daily to befriend and turn Snowden.
USA spends as much on defense as the
next 10 largest countries COMBINED,
USA SPENDS 10 times as much on cyber
forces as any other nation in the world.
Snowden could negate this cyber lead
if he had access to Stuxnet blue print.
And make Russia a super power AGAIN.
Crimea COULD become a rubber stamp
operation if Russia gets Stuxnet.
