WIKILEAKS: Surveillance Cameras Around The Country Are Being Used In A Huge Spy Network
Business Insider ^ | August 10, 2012 | David Seaman

Posted on 08/11/2012 2:26:33 PM PDT by LucyT

The U.S. cable networks won't be covering this one tonight (not accurately, anyway), but Trapwire is making the rounds on social media today—it reportedly became a Trending hashtag on Twitter earlier in the day.

Trapwire is the name of a program revealed in the latest Wikileaks bonanza—it is the mother of all leaks, by the way. Trapwire would make something like disclosure of UFO contact or imminent failure of a major U.S. bank fairly boring news by comparison.

And someone out there seems to be quite disappointed that word is getting out so swiftly; the Wikileaks web site is reportedly sustaining 10GB worth of DDoS attacks each second, which is massive.

Anyway, here's what Trapwire is, according to Russian-state owned media network RT (apologies for citing "foreign media"... if we had a free press, I'd be citing something published here by an American media conglomerate): "Former senior intelligence officials have created a detailed surveillance system more accurate than modern facial recognition technology—and have installed it across the U.S. under the radar of most Americans..."

Every few seconds, data picked up at surveillance points in major cities and landmarks across the United States are recorded digitally on the spot, then encrypted and instantaneously delivered to a fortified central database center at an undisclosed location to be aggregated with other intelligence. It’s part of a program called TrapWire and it's the brainchild of the Abraxas, a Northern Virginia company staffed with elite from America’s intelligence community.

The employee roster at Arbaxas reads like a who’s who of agents once with the Pentagon, CIA and other government entities according to their public LinkedIn profiles, and the corporation's ties are assumed to go deeper than even documented.

Just read Brad Thor’s latest book, Black List. It’s the exact same story with the names changed slightly.

"In related news, the Obama administration is fighting in federal court this week for the ability to imprison American citizens under NDAA's indefinite detention provisions—and anyone else—without charge or trial, on suspicion alone.

"So we have a widespread network of surveillance cameras across America monitoring us and reporting suspicious activity back to a centralized analysis center, mixed in with the ability to imprison people via military force on the basis of suspicious activity alone. I don't see how that could possibly go wrong."

. . . . Article and # 1. Hope you'll read the entire article, guarantee you won't rest well tonight.

Yikes !!!........”In other words, they were telling a U.S. federal judge that they could not, or would not, state whether Obama’s government had complied with the legal injunction that she had laid down before them. To this, Judge Forrest responded that if the provision had indeed been applied, the United States government would be in contempt of court.”...businessinsider.com

Yes. It is a great show. Nothing like payback to a$$holes to get my interest. 24 was good too except the final 6-12 months. Not enough violence for me.

So, have the bastards crossed the line yet? When do we start hanging these people.

Looks like 1984 was a playbook for our out of control government.

I will read the article in a bit; maybe it’s mentioned in it. I assume that Fusion Centers are somehow involved?

This conversation is from a video game, a sci-fi spy game set in the near future, that came out in 2000. I was creeped out by it at the time, and it just keeps getting creepier, because in 12 years, we have only gotten closer to realizing it. At the time, I really thought it was unreasonable that people would want this.

The problem is that RT, itself, is an arm of Russian propaganda against the United States. Everyone should read them with that in mind.

Best TV show Hollywood has come up with in a long time.

Years ago when I was in college studying Radio/TV, “two way” TVs were in the experimental stage. You’re watching and listening to TV while “they” are watching and listening to you.

When videos first came out “commercials” were included on the tape. They stopped doing it because they knew people were fast forwarding past them. How did they know that? I believe if you’re connected to the cable system, you’re being watched. And if your numbers comes up, they’ll find you.
