Public Enemies - NSA and their companies

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | other press author Thursday November 14, 2013 18:22author by rebel Report this post to the editors

Here is one article about true public enemies, not state enemies than enemies of society. Companies and people and their products that are created to build totalitarianism in the time of global capitalism.

This is loooong article but it can be useful to somebody. HTML version with bolds and links can be found at: http://pastebin.com/C476F9BD

Here is one article about true public enemies, not state enemies than enemies of society. Companies and people and their products that are created to build totalitarianism in the time of global capitalism. Their aim is to control people and companies and politicians globally, everything with aim to make bigger profit for rich Americans. So, yes, on the top of the list should be billionaires (owners of Shell, Chevron and similar) but this article is more about their servants (political, military, security system) that hunt people and disturb our life. They don’t spy only politicians and ordinary people, they hunted Silk Road and they continue. Wide spectrum of people should be aware of totalitarian lunatics. Don’t forget: even if you see that companies financed by NSA/CIA produce some ordinary software, you should be aware that their software contain bugs or backdoors which help them to spy users of software. Open Source doesn’t mean that software has no bug or backdoor, even open source is good for them, software code is public and they get code contribution from different developers without to pay them and rarely programmers who don’t work for CIA check software. Only those financed by the state, they have time to check so many software, other programmers must find work for a living.

Beside it, if you believe that there is internet paradise like Assange believed in Sweden, you should read this: British investigative journalist Duncan Campbell has claimed that Sweden collaborated with the USA on the internet monitoring FRA law and that the country is on the same level of surveillance as Israel. Sweden is one of America’s key partners in efforts to monitor internet communications across the globe. The surveillance is mostly conducted by the direct tapping of fibre optic cables and the development of “secret relationships” with telecommunications companies. British GCHQ had been delighted when Sweden’s Riksdag/parliament in 2008 clubbed through the law that gives the National Defence Radio Establishment (FRA) the right to monitor traffic in fiber optic cables. FRA is a Swedish Government Agency organised under the Ministry of Defense, the two main tasks of FRA are signals intelligence (COMINT and SIGINT/ELINT) and support to government authorities and state owned companies regarding IT security. The main headquarters is located on the island of Lovön in Stockholm County. FRA was assigned a budget of 562 million SEK in 2008 and has around 650 employees. Interception of signals is done from fixed sites on Swedish territory, from the SIGINT ship HMS Orion (operated by the Swedish Navy, and soon to be replaced by another vessel that meets safety regulations) and from two Gulfstream IV aircraft (operated by the Swedish Air Force). Ingvar Åkesson is Director-General and Christina Malm is Deputy Director-General. The only difference between FRA and NSA is that FRA outsource only strictly technical jobs to subcontractors, so, level of neoliberal ideology in their work is smaller than in the U.S. and FRA doesn’t have 1.6 billion dollar storage facility and supercomputer like NSA.

Sweden is not the only one, Spain, France and Germany also developed surveillance of Internet and Frankfurt has international backbone (Internet exchange points) so they can spy very much. Over 580 customers from 60+ countries are creating more than 2.6 Terabits of peak traffic through the public peering platform of DE-CIX Frankfurt. This makes DE-CIX Frankfurt the world’s largest Internet Exchange Point.

I found official NSA co-operation information:
The 5-Eyes: The US, the UK, Canada, New Zealand and Australia
The 9-Eyes: The ’5-Eyes’ group plus Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and France
The 14-Eyes: The two above groups plus Germany, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, and Italy
The NSA was collecting data from Verizon thanks to a secret court order. The Washington Post revealed an even broader program of surveillance code-named PRISM (this software was produced by company called Palantir, which involved data collection from the web’s largest players — including Google, Facebook and Apple — and then the Wall Street Journal said data is also being gathered from ISPs and credit-card companies.

General Keith Alexander is director of the world’s largest intelligence service, the National Security Agency (NSA); chief of the Central Security Service; and commander of the US Cyber Command. As such, he has his own secret military, presiding over the Navy’s 10th Fleet, the 24th Air Force, and the Second Army. He brought the entire Internet, our private life, under surveillance. Alexander has now the capability to physically destroy equipment and infrastructure of an enemy of American corporations, and even to kill. Michael Hastings died in car crash, he was a 33-year-old investigative reporter for Rolling Stone magazine, whose June 2010 article, “The Runaway General,” exposed the behind-the-scenes failure of top U.S. General Stanley McChrystal’s counterinsurgency strategy in Afghanistan—and, even more damagingly, revealed McChrystal’s mocking attitude toward the Obama administration, which ultimately led to the general’s resignation. In Hastings’s 2012 book, “The Operators: The Wild and Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan,” Hastings wrote about being approached by one of Gen. McChrystal’s aides. “We’ll hunt you down and kill you if we don’t like what you write.” Military is interconnected with dogs of war (so-called mercenaries, people paid to go in war and kill), so, they can hire them as paid killers and eliminate somebody.
