Conveniently located two blocks from the US National SecuritO RLY? Agency.

This is a pretty important story, but I'm afraid many won't read it because the excerpted sentence and title are so butchered. Perhaps you might consider cutting and pasting next time?

That was from chasing Checkers around the WH lawn.

At least Nixon was never seen in a black pantsuit, though.

Ummm..

If you go to the last paragraph of the "article", which reads:

Skype could not be reached for comment. The Clinton campaign announced that Senator Clinton would make a statement at a press conference later today.

You'll note that the word "today" is a hyperlink, which goes to:

I found it interesting. It will be interesting to see which of her staffers was picked up. A former NSA employee, hmm. Probably selling info for campaign cash. Do you really think she will mention it in a press conference?

Read the article at the link.
The suspect, who recently left the US National Security Agency to join Clinton’s Presidential campaign, was arrested on an unrelated charge. An examination of the suspect’s briefcase revealed transcripts of a conversation between Laszlo Bene, the head of the Hungarian police, and Stefan Feller, head of the police in Brussels. According to Hungarian police, the suspect confessed that he had eavesdropped on the conversation — not by using a “bug,” but by turning on a microphone on the desk of Bene’s computer.
There's a VoIP company named Skype. Per the article, Skype's software appears to have a back door which allows somebody to remotely turn on the microphone on your computer without you knowing about it, if their software is installed.

So Clinton appears to have hired an NSA-trained spook for her campaign, presumably to be able to better get dirt on her enemies

Good catch. Story sounded too goofy but certainly not goofy enough for some. Let's see the MSM pick it up.

How can you tell? All I can get out of it is that Hillary is hungry for a microphone so that she can talk about Nixon's butt.

This is exceedingly like her unroyal lowness, her hideous heinous--Gritch-BW*tch Shrillery Antoinette de Fosterizer de Marx de Machiavelli de Stalin de Pol Pot . . . de Sade.

She loves that sort of stuff. Just imagine the black mail files in her White House closet next time!

Read the article at the link. It's not at all that surprising. Such things have been going on in one form or another for at least the last 35-50 years.

It is refreshing that HARXIST got caught at it this time.

I hope they make a biggggg fuss. I suspect the puppet masters will hush it up in short order.

Skype Revenue from National Security Agency?

Sunday April 1, 2007 4:27AM by Moshe Yudkowsky in News

Last week’s arrest in Hungary of a staffer for Senator Hillary Clinton has exposed severe privacy violations by VoIP provider Skype as well as the US National Security Agency. This according to accusations by the Hungarian police and the European Union.

The suspect, who recently left the US National Security Agency to join Clinton’s Presidential campaign, was arrested on an unrelated charge. An examination of the suspect’s briefcase revealed transcripts of a conversation between Laszlo Bene, the head of the Hungarian police, and Stefan Feller, head of the police in Brussels. According to Hungarian police, the suspect confessed that he had eavesdropped on the conversation — not by using a “bug,” but by turning on a microphone on the desk of Bene’s computer. Hungarian police refused to answer questions about the suspect’s identify or the staffer’s position within the Clinton Presidential campaign. Police in Brussels, sensitive to a series of recent police scandals, issued only a brief statement that they were investigating a possible privacy violation.

Sources in the Hungarian police department revealed that the background traffic associated with running Skype on a personal computer provides an ideal method to hide the transfer of data from an individual’s computer without the owner’s knowledge or consent. Skype can “turn on a computer’s microphone on command,” said a highly-placed source, “and no one will be the wiser.” The data are routed to servers that use speech recognition to look for suspicious phrases. Furthermore, algorithms can use the sound of keyclicks to guess at which keys are being struck, which allows anyone listening to determine now only what is being said but what is being typed.

The European Commission has opened an investigation. “The suspect worked at the US National Security Agency, where he learned of an agreement between Skype and Echelon to enable a ’spy’ mode on all Skype products,” said Alain Brun, head of data protection at the European Commission. “He used that capability to commit a serious crime. Skype is a European company, not an American one, and we intend to investigate their potential culpability in this matter very thoroughly.”

Financial analysts believe that a Skype-NSA could explain Skype’s business model. “Outside payments by government agencies would explain how Skype can hope to make a profit,” said an anonymous source at Dean Witter. “Otherwise the purchase of Skype by eBay still doesn’t make sense.”

Skype could not be reached for comment. The Clinton campaign announced that Senator Clinton would make a statement at a press conference later today.
