The NSA is Tracking Your Every Movement
Today’s release of documents obtained from whistleblower Edward Snowden is by far the most explosive and most damning of any of the material that Mr. Snowden began to release in June of this year.
They reveal the truly outrageous and criminal character of the Pentagon’s spying operations against civilians. And they make it clear, as Congress gets ready to debate the surveillance programs, that any Congressional representative or senator who refuses to take action to end these programs is violating their oath of office to uphold the Constitution.
The new documents show that “the government is tracking people from afar into confidential business meetings or personal visits to medical facilities, hotel rooms, private homes and other traditionally protected spaces” by the NSA gathering nearly 5 billion records a day on the whereabouts of cell phones users locations, according to the Washington Post article authored by Barton Gellman and Ashkan Soltani. Gellman was one of the reporters to whom Ed Snowden released NSA documents.
A NSA senior manager, speaking anonymously to the Washington Post, admitted that the NSA gets vast volumes of location data of Americans as well as overseas cell phone users by tapping into the cables that connect mobile networks.
The new documents expose that the people of the United States, and people throughout the planet, now live under a mass surveillance regime whose scope and scale was unimaginable six months ago.
