NSA is not just tracking your whereabouts, its also tracking your networks. NSA has been allowing the collection of data from phone calls, texts, and email since November 2010. Well that’s at least what they claim. NSA claims this is necessary in order to discover other terrorist within a cell or network. NSA wants these nodes to be gatekeepers and lead them to more “threats.” The was previously allowed to do this for foreigners, but now the policy applies to all Americans.
In fact, a good portion of the NSA’s budget was spent on an “Enterprise Knowledge System” that was designed to discover, connect, and correlate all the complex relationships and patterns across a diverse and massive data set. The system can discover new targets of surveillance at rapid speeds.
Remember, be careful out there because Big Brother is watching.
