Staff working at Americas National Security Agencythe eavesdropping unit that was revealed to have spied on millions of peoplehave used the technology to spy on their lovers.
The employees even had a code name for the practiceLove-intmeaning the gathering of intelligence on their partners.
Dianne Feinstein, a senator who chairs the Senate intelligence committee, said the NSA told her committee about a set of isolated cases that have occurred about once a year for the last 10 years. The spying was not within the US, and was carried out when one of the lovers was abroad.

There is simply NO WAY these programs could be misused. NO WAY.
“Nobody is listening to your phone calls.”
I was a telecommunications systems specialist in the AF. Back then, everything was analog, but this type of stuff went on all the time. With the advent of computers and knowing a couple of basic facts like name and/or phone number, I’d expect that an interested party at the NSA could call up and play back ANYTHING the target has ever said or emailed or texted in their lifetime.
Of course it happens, it is human nature, and Obama gave the go ahead for the NSA to be able to do this and for its employees to misuse it.
Obama and Holder are publicly speaking about their plan of the week that are just more smokescreen distractions to divert attention away from the incompetent manner Obama has handled his day job.
The best indicator of a PHONY ADMINISTRATION is the number of its REAL SCANDALS.
Commie Tyrant Obamas current talking points are thus smokescreen distractions for the products of Obamas first 4 years in office:
* Refusal to close US Southern Border to Mexican illegal alien invaders
* No known un-forged records of Place of Birth
* No known un-forged records of University grades
* Benghazi Massacre
* Dereliction of Duty as CIC during Benghazi Massacre
* Cover up of Benghazi Massacre
* Destruction of Seal Team Six
* Cover up of Fast and Furious murder of US Border Agent by Exec. Order
* IRS-Obamacare Commune Death Grip on Wealth and Health
* NSA-Gestapo Death Grip on all citizens communications
* Use of Courts against News Media
* Use of Supreme Court to install Un-Constitutional Obamacare Tax
* Destruction of the US Coal Industry
* Refusal to permit XL Pipeline construction
* Trillion Dollar a year Federal Overspending
* Monthly violations of the US Constitution by Obama
* Use of Exec. Orders to bypass Congress.
REPLACE sniveling coward Speaker Boehner with a FIGHTER!
It is time to IMPEACH Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, aka Barry Soetoro.
Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.
Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?
Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?
Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?
The main thing that Speaker Boehner is afraid of is being blamed for doing his job.
Speaker Boehners job now is to shut down the NON-ESSENTIAL parts of the US Federal Government until Obamacare is ABOLISHED, and keep it shut down for however long it takes.
Obama will continue to ruin America as long as Boehner is Speaker of the US House of Represenatives.
Four + years of Boehner has proven Boehner to be unfit to combat Tyrant Obama.
It is now up to the Members of the House to replace Boehner so that the new Speaker can shut down the non-essential parts of the US Federal Government ASAP in order to ABOLISH Obamacare.
Actually I am for all the abuses government can throw at us. Pile it on.
What kinds of Happy Juice/Powder are The Powers In Charge are
Doesn’t anyone conduct background checks anymore?
Secret Service have bimbos in every port.
The lowest of the low, Pvt 3rd class accesses and reveals 70,000 classified documents. I’m not sure of Manning’s (Bradley) current sexual status whether it’s a he or she or in transit.
I could continue, but it’s too depressing.
Staff at the NSA that were willing to break the law to spy on their lovers were nevertheless concerned enough about legal niceties to ensure their spying was only done when their lovers were out of the country.
The lying becomes comical after awhile.
Any “systems expert” worth their weight in dog crap would design into such a system auditing; that is, who did what when, and also abuse detection, using pattern-matching. This is how credit reporting and credit card systems work. They have security teams that have NO CONNECTION to the people being monitored watching over this. “Black teams” watch over the developers and systems, checking for accidental and deliberate security holes or back doors.
For example, this is how fraud detection works on credit cards, or that there is a trace on each time your credit is checked or reported on. I’ll give you a good example of this; in the 70’s, I knew a guy who wrote a good part of an early credit reporting system. He left in a backdoor where he could run a report on anybody with no audit trail or trace. Even better, he wrote in the ability to change something in a credit report, which would not be updated until the next update (from GMAC, FMCC, or whatever). Today, besides being REALLY, REALLY ILLEGAL, this would simply not be possible.
IMO, it is NO ACCIDENT that these security and auditing systems seem to be undeveloped by the multibillion-dollar NSA with their high-dollar consultants and employees.
Wonder what data NSA has on members of congress and senate and how it will be used on the 2014 and 2016 elections??.
the old plausible deniability sctick eh
And the low-information Dhimmicrats keep asking:
“Why would you consider sexual infidelity and/or promiscuous activity a national security risk? It’s only “sex”; everyone has sex.”
Yes, and let ALL the abuses come to light and become common knowledge. This regime is becoming an occupying force rather than a government.
Seems like the last time we had one of those we remedied the problem. It took a few years, but the results were worth the blood.
Might be our turn.
I hope it happens while I can hold the gun steady. I wouldn’t want to wound or scare them.
If a government entity has a capability of any kind, that capability will be used no matter what the law or legal restrictions may be.
Anytime a capability to do something exists, it is ridiculous for any government official to state that the government is not doing it.
Everytime an official does make such a statement they are proven wrong.
You might think some of them would be astute enough to say “To my knowledge we are not doing that”, but they never seem to learn that ignorance and cover-ups are always outed.
Well, we don’t know WHAT info they have.
But clearly Boehner, McConnell and Roberts have been compromised.
IF they had a patriotic cell in their bodies they’d resign.
One of the greatest movies, ever.
And history is repeating.
I’m not doing anything wrong.
The dog ate my homework.
A friend came in last night from out of town.
It’s just the makings of a police state.

That’s what this is about. Zero doesn’t even have to make an overt threat, which would leave a trail. The implied threat is enough.
Cuz he can.
“Wonder what data NSA has on members of congress and senate and how it will be used on the 2014 and 2016 elections??.”
I think we already know the NSA has the goods on the GOP members of Congress and they are scared to death of the information being released. Boehner, Cantor, McConnell, McCain, Graham, and others certainly behave like puppets of the administration and not servants of their constituents.
No doubt the problem is much worse than reported. Audits typically only touch the tip of the iceberg,
“- Wonder what data NSA has on members of congress”..
Probably not much compared to Google. Another example of the private sector doing a better job :)
Agree I wonder what if the GOP has NSA goods on the DNC?.
Zero is no better than a felon with the way he works.

I think former spouses/girlfriends of NSA employees should file civil litigation.
As it turns out, these guys are a bunch of pervs. Who’d of thunk it?
