Response to Capt. Obvious (Original post)

85. I see snowden/greenwald fans are trying to persuade one and all to move along.. nothing to

to see here. It's only snowden being used as a world class tool/fool by Putin and greenwald tweeting some jibberish to deflect.

Only snowden and glenn get to talk.. everyone else has to stfu.



But what caught my eye in one of the unredacted slides was the mention of Al Qaeda in Iraq being a particular target of the NSA's efforts. The slide reads: "Visual Communicator Free application that combines Instant Messaging, Photo-Messaging, and Push2Talk capabilities on a mobile platform. VC used on GPRS or 3G networks." The next five words were what the Times tried and failed to redact: "heavily used in AQI Mosul Network."

The aim as described in the documents is to target mobile phone apps that can give away a target's physical location. The utility of this in tracking terrorists hardly needs to be stated. The document describes a program focusing on clear security interests Al Qaeda in Iraq, now calling itself Al Qaeda in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) killed thousands in Iraq during the US-led war there and continues to carry out suicide bombings and attacks on civilians there on a weekly basis. ISIS is also deeply involved in the civil war in Syria, and the groups ties to Al Qaeda make it an obvious security concern for the US.
