(The Atlantic)   Let's say this Twinkie represents the number of lies the NSA has told us about tracking the location of our cell phones. Based on this article... that's a hell of a big Twinkie   (theatlantic.com) divider line 14

I phone the NSA whenever I lose my car keys.

They always know right where they are and it's easier than me having to look around for them.

I'll just wait for the "Snowden didn't tell us anything we didn't already know!" apologists.

tetsoushima: This doesn't mean all conspiracy theories are true, btw.


Nor does it mean the converse.

the U.S. official said the data doesn't provide sufficient intelligence value to justify the resources that would be required to use it.

Basically, These are not the droids you are looking for

We already knew the cell phone networks have to know your phone's location in order to communicate it, this is a technical fact.  We already knew that the government can quite easily subpoena this information.

So now the only difference is that my location is the government's own database instead of Verizon's, and not significantly more accessible that it would have been.  Whoopteedee.

Snowden didn't tell us anything we didn't already know.

It doesn't matter. The NSA will hear the call anyway.

Smoking GNU: Sudo_Make_Me_A_Sandwich: I'll just wait for the "Snowden didn't tell us anything we didn't already know!" apologists.

I don't see that as a response from an apologist, but as from people who were derided as paranoid and conspiracy theorists not 2 years ago.


I see them as part of Cyber Command's psy ops department
