CIA Admits It Monitors, Analyzes Facebook, Twitter

Not really anything new, but at least their finally admitting it!

Quote:
for the first time, a unit within the CIA, referring to itself as the ‘vengeful librarians,’ that is responsible for monitoring the vast and various social networks, local and international news, radio, and television, Internet chat rooms, and pretty much anything from which they can procure intelligence. The unit is part of the CIA’s Open Source Center. Their goal is to monitor every facet of the internet in every imaginable language, cross-referencing that information with local news reports and information gleaned in the more traditional, cloak-and-dagger, spy-type espionage.

Yes, heaven forbid they find out that I went to a concert last night and my ears are ringing today.

People need to remember that the problem is not the person reading facebook, but rather you own fault for posting stuff that you might now want others to know.

CIA only monitors overseas and overseas to the USA.
