Boundless Informant: NSA’s complex tool for classifying global intelligence

A new batch of classified NSA docs leaked to the media reveals the details of a comprehensive piece of software used by NSA to analyze and evaluate intelligence gathered across the globe as well as data extraction methods.

The top-secret documents released by the Guardian shed light on the National Security Agency’s data-mining tool being used for counting and categorizing metadata gathered and stored in numerous databases around the world.

Known as Boundless Informant, the software provides its operator a graphical insight on how many records were collected for a specific “organizational unit” or country, what type of data was collected and what type of collection was used. The program also allows determining trends in data collection for both strategic and tactical decision making, according to the slides.

One of the slides contains a part of the Informant’s user interface showing a world map with countries color-coded ranging from green to red depending on the amount of records collected there. While Iran, Pakistan and other some other states are predictably “hottest” according to the map, the agency collected almost 3 billion intelligence pieces in the US in March 2013 alone.

NSA Spying On Canadians, CSEC Capable Of Similar Surveillance: Experts

That has raised concerns among privacy rights advocates that Canadians’ personal information may be getting caught up in the U.S.’s programs. Many experts say there is no “if” here; because of the integrated, international nature of online communication, it’s inevitable Canadians’ communications are being collected as part of the U.S. programs.

Unbeknownst to most Canadians, Canada has laws on the books enabling monitoring that are very similar to the controversial provisions of the USA Patriot Act.


This doesn't surprise me at all. I've known this for a long time, of course Canadians are being spied on. What suprises me is so many remain in willfull ignorance to it. As ʞ pointed out above.

Some Parts Of NSA Story Won’t Be Published

The main author of a string of stories revealing large-scale top secret spying on American citizens by the National Security Agency says that there are parts of the story that have been withheld for legal reasons and that the goal is not to execute an unedited document dump.

“We’re not engaged in a mindless, indiscriminate document dump, and our source didn’t want us to be,” said Glenn Greenwald, the Guardian writer, in an email to BuzzFeed Saturday. “We’re engaged in the standard journalistic assessment of whether the public value to publication outweighs any harms.”

Exactly, the MSM has not said anything about what we all knew all along till Holder went to war with them. Now the tables have turned, look the fekk out.
Like I said, MSM suddenly sounds like CT forums and Alternative news.
The sheepsies are trippin' bad. rofl.gif

This makes me laugh. Where's the 'public value'? Had DHS ever caught a single terrywrist, it might have a wee bit of validity. But it simply isn't about security, it's about identifying the dissidents.

Yeah I had to post that statement. It's just ridiculous. sad2.gif

US government snooping does not surprise global Internet users, who say they already have few expectations of online privacy as governments increasingly monitor people's digital lives and Internet companies often acquiesce.

Quote:By the way, did you know that on June 17 that Denver International Airport is shutting down to have an asteroid defense drill?
