In an anonymous industrial park in Virginia, in an unassuming brick building, the CIA is following up to five million tweets a day.

At the agency's Open Source Center in McLean, a team known affectionately as the 'vengeful librarians' also pores over Facebook, newspapers, TV news channels, local radio stations, Internet chat rooms – anything overseas that anyone can access and contribute to openly.

From Arabic to Mandarin Chinese, from an angry tweet to a thoughtful blog, the analysts gather the information, often in native tongue. Keeping track: The CIA team follow up to five million tweets a day around the world to gauge what is going on in different regions

Of jeez. It’s called “intelligence gathering.” The CIA used to do the same thing back in the day when the media consisted of newspapers, magazines, movies, and books. I would hope to hell that our intelligence agencies are looking at publically produced material all day long... the only question I have is how they can find the time. But to see some sinister gathering of spies looking at tweets and Facebook is a reach.

Hey 'vengeful librarian', tell Obama to read Reinstitute the House Committee on Un-American Activities. I'm hoping he'll have to testify some day. Oh, and after he reads that, show him Amnesty: The Line in the Sand. After that, show him all my posts and posts of all FReepers and make sure we're on the bad boy/girl lists. . We can't wait for a visit. . .

Ditto. FUBO, you worthless un-American and anti-American socialist. Remember, there are millions of us that have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic... You are an enemy, and you will be removed 1/20/13.

I wouldn’t put it past Homeland Security to have a computer program which scans the vast volume of tweets, blogs and postings looking for some phrases or word combinations considered worrisome and idenifying the posters. Once identified, a simple file is maintained automatically until a defined critical mass or set of “magic words” raises a red flag for human examination. It just seems logical.

Time to stand up is coming soon.

Thirty years ago, when I worked as a CTI (crypto-linguist) for the Navy Security Group, thses kinds of activities by the CIA would have been prosecuted as then it was illegal to spy on U.S. citizens domestically and internationally.

Ronald Reagan was President.

HEY! Open Space Center in McLean, yeah you Central Intelligence Agency! I’m over here on Free Republic!

I consider the US Federal Government to be Public Enemy Number One to the US taxpayer, as last month you SOB’s cost me $ 650 Obamadollars of debt!

No need to snoop further, as I will send you a list of my threads, on this thread.

BTW, while you are waiting for my list of threads, pass along a big “fly over Howdy” to your boss. I call him “Dictator-in-his-own-mind, High Poo Bah, Ex-Law Instructor from the Chicago School of Bureaucratic Socialism, Marxist proponent of income transfer payments, Bank-Bashing-Bolshevik, You Lie Obama.”

BTW, keep on giving You Lie Obama your Intelligence reports, as intelligence has been in short supply in the Oval Office for the last 3 looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooong years.

BTW, BTW, if You Lie is not in his Oval Office, you might run a check on one of the nearby Obamavilles.

Yeah, I know, but those Obamasquatters are Obama’s grass-root supporters, so a little show of support will cement their vote.

Holy crap, if their fast strike teams are as stupid as their swat teams in finding an address, I’ll have to go down to the flatlands and lead them to my place.
Of course the way it’s snowing outside right now, I could just lose them and let them die in the cold and the dark by them selves.

Obama actually cares what the newspapers are saying about him? Maybe it’s just because he’s so vain, but most politicians couldn’t give a damn.

So, would saying “KILL THE COMMIES!!!” be considered a direct threat to the President?

Moslems are taking over the United States. That should save them some time and effort.
