Anonymous liberates DoD documents exposing NSA spying programs.
The following is an excerpt from the Pastebin release issued by Anonymous:
Greetings Netizens, and Citizens of the world.
Anonymous has obtained some documents that “they” do not want you to see, and much to “their” chagrin, we have found them, and are giving them to you.
These documents prove that the NSA is spying on you, and not just Americans. They are spying on the citizens of over 35 different countries.
These documents contain information on the companies involved in GIG, and Prism.
What’s GIG you might ask? well…
The GIG will enable the secure, agile, robust, dependable, interoperable data sharing environment for the Department where warfighter, business, and intelligence users share knowledge on a global network that facilitates information superiority, accelerates decision-making, effective operations, and Net-Centric transformation.
We bring this to you, So that you know just how little rights you have. Your privacy and freedoms are slowly being taken from you, in closed door meetings, in laws buried in
bills, and by people who are supposed to be protecting you.
We are Anonymous
We do not forgive
We do not forget
and by now,
You should expect us
Media reports indicate the documents released by Anonymous are from 2008, shortly after the NSA began its just-unveiled PRISM spying program, and outlines key portions of the NSA’s “strategic vision” for monitoring and controlling information online.
The action by Anonymous comes after bombshell revelations concerning the fact that the NSA has obtained direct access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Apple and other US internet giants. The NSA access is part of a previously undisclosed program called PRISM, which allows the government to collect the private information of Internet users, including search history, the content of emails, file transfers and live chats.
Silicon Valley executives deny all knowledge of the top secret program that gives the NSA direct access to the internet giants’ servers.
