CIA has been spying on Americans (again)

The Central Intelligence Agency has reportedly been collecting data as part of a previously undisclosed program.
According to Senators Ron Wyden and Martin Heinrich, the CIA has been covertly conducting warrantless surveillance as part of two separate data collection efforts.

This seems to have been going on both since and despite the 2013 disclosure by whistle-blower Edward Snowden of mass data collection through extensive internet and phone surveillance.

Until then, officials had stringently denied that this was going on - even going so far as to lie under oath. Named 'Prism', the operation was ultimately deemed unlawful by the US courts.

Now it seems as though the CIA is doing the same thing again.

A declassified report relating to one of these two new programs was released on Thursday, however requests to gain access to information about the other were refused.
Wyden and Heinrich have accused the agency of "undermin[ing] democratic oversight and pos[ing] risks to the long-term credibility of the Intelligence Community."

The public deserved to know "the nature and full extent" of the surveillance, the pair argued.

"These reports raise serious questions about what information of ours the CIA is vacuuming up in bulk and how the agency exploits that information to spy on Americans," the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) said in a statement.

Efforts to determine the full scale and purpose of this mass surveillance remain ongoing.

A few things: Over the last decade or so, I've helped build a few data centers build for Google, Microsoft, Facebook and the like.  They are the size of multiple football fields and hold rows upon rows of computers whose sole purpose is to story your memes, pictures, browsing history and posts.  I've shopped at grocery stores that scan and record every product I buy so they know what to stock, reorder, advertise or discontinue.  I pay for it with a credit card that links to my name and affects my citizenship score (credit rating). I've smiled at the security camera as I walked out. But to get ... [More]

It?s never going to stop. It?s Uncle Sam keeping a watchful eye on you and everyone else. Legal or not it?s been going on since day one.

Well, well so much for the law from several decades ago that the Cia was not to conduct operations within the us.

The CIA has been its own government since the start. It answers to no one and does what it wants.
