i see you are quick to forget about the NZ politician corruption exposition done by Kim and how that ended.Abomination said:Actually, complete flip side currently. He tried to get into politics and the party he attached himself to crashed so hard because of it.Strazdas said:Kim kinda got your government in the twist after the MegaShare disaster.
We'll extradite him should we be given cause but at the moment the US has yet to provide sufficient evidence.
Either way, it doesn't change how NZ's government operates. They can and will push through law that would otherwise violate constitutions.
Probably because while NSA has full computing capabilities of reading every social network message, it may not have enough legal capabilities to wrestled facebook yet?albino boo said:I am more than well aware that the Echelon network does not use a desktop computer but you failed to answer the bottom line point. Why did the NSA spend money and time duplicating intercepts when it monitors all traffic. Furthermore in murder of Lee Rigby by the islamic terrorists Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale the echelon networks did not pick up Michael Adebolajo 7 closed facebook pages and the online chat about the murder. The volume of traffic is too much to monitor all traffic.
Perhaps because parsing keyword filters when millions of people talk about murdering others in terror attack (yay, probably got flagged by keyword filter right there) is different than actually people following certain people to see if they can find evidence of something?
Monitoring all traffic does not mean storing all traffic. internet is HUGE, even NSA servers cant have a copy of it. If intercept is done while the data is being delivered, there is no way to check it at a later date from facebook servers for example.
You are correct in pointing out that the volume is too large to always catch every criminal around. This is the problem that a mere keyword filter is not good enough and theres only so much humans can do. I never implied that NSA is personally reading your messages. what i implied is that they CAN if they target you, whether for criminal or political reasons. its a very powerful tool to destroy political opposition and thats pretty damn scary.
