This is a must listen presentation by Jacob Appelbaum (@ioerror) on NSA spying. Particularly towards the end if you want to hear about the wave beam spying.
The NSA has exotic technology often discussed in conspiracy research circles only, and ridiculed as tin foil hat, kook, wacko conspiracy theory by the corporate media who have an interest in propping up the system as they too are complicit in many of the HollyWeird productions now being peddled as news.
In addition to this, Jacob outlines that most American technology brands are compromised. Apple backdoors, Dell front doors, Cisco routers, Yahoo Mail, CNN websites, and even spy technology inserted into computer casing or hard drives, so they are never discovered after they are delivered.
Anybody who has for example, ever criticized anybody privately, in an email or watched some internet porn is compromised. The NSA will have no hesitation in blackmailing people to be their assets in the future.
That's what happens when the psychopaths are in charge.
This is only the beginning. The satellite scanning of humanity is well discussed elsewhere on the net.
It's a prison planet unless you're watching your footy and reality TV and commenting on celebrities.
Tick Tock, Tick Tock.
