[SSM] On Friday (07-6-13), the Guardian broke a story about a previously undisclosed, $20m/annum NSA program called PRISM – which provides the NSA with direct access to the servers of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants. The companies mentioned in the Guardian’s article strenuously denied that material such as stored data, search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats, etc. were accessed directly by the NSA. But these lies are now laid bare through the release of a key slide that the Guardian published only after its original story.
It is just a matter of time before unauthorised, real-time access to information about the behaviours and habits of you and your family at home are put under the microscope via Smart Meter data. Don’t give them the chance to put privacy-violating infrastructure in your home which can at any time be compromised and used against you by any number of parties – foreign and domestic. You have the right to refuse Smart Meters – use it!
You may well have nothing to hide – but have you considered what you stand to lose? [/]
(NaturalNews) Breaking news — this is one of the biggest stories of our lifetime — it is critical for all internet users to read and understand this. The Guardian has just released a new slide today from its collection of 41 PRISM slides detailing the top secret NSA spy program that has, for years, granted the U.S. government “back door” access to the servers of Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Apple, AOL, Facebook and others. The new slide, shown below, reveals that every one of these companies has been blatantly and viciously lying to its users over the last several days as they have denied the government has any sort of “direct access” to their servers.
In a brilliant move of strategic journalism, the Guardian held on to this revealing PRISM slide until today, allowing all these tech companies to dig themselves into deep holes of denial regarding participation in the NSA spy program. Once all the companies were on the record claiming government has no “direct access” to their servers, the Guardian slapped down this jaw-dropping top secret slide image shown below. It reveals, in plain English, that the NSA’s “FAA702” operations engage in “collection directly from the servers of these U.S. Service Providers: Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple.”
That slide, originally published by the Guardian, is shown here:
