  •  I would say that the method... (6+ / 0-)

    ... implies a systematic and enormous development effort to implement the system, which the NSA has already admitted they have.  Albiet, they say that they have only used it to monitor foreign communications; I again argue that it is impossible to build such a system without having the capacity to listen to all communications, and furthermore, listening to a huge sample of innocent communications, illegally, in order to build the system.

    This sort of effort would require a huge resource allocation.  This would be the Apollo program of the spy world.  Which leads, at least to a very good likelihood that it was known about and authorized from the top down.  And thus, I am not sure that there is as much of a blurring between the technical method and the human angle.

    While I cannot prove what the NSA has been up to, I can look at what they have said and apply my own professional knowledge to the problem.  I realize that circumstantial evidence is not proof; with this said, I cannot come to any other conclusion at this time, given the current data that I have.

    The next few days and weeks should be interesting, regardless.
