The NSA makes Watergate break-in look like kindergarten

The NSA and the British agency GCHQ have broken into Deutsche Telekom, according to der Spiegal. Their goal? Map the Internet.

The initiative is called Treasure Map:

[E]very single end device that is connected to the Internet somewhere in the world — every smartphone, tablet and computer — is to be made visible.

The article continues:

Because Netcologne is a regional provider, it would seem highly likely that the NSA or one of its Treasure Map partners accessed the network from within Germany. That would be a clear violation of German law and potentially another NSA-related case for German public prosecutors. Thus far, the only NSA-related casecurrently being investigated is the monitoring of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s mobile phone.

    Thanks NSA. It still boggle me that Snowden came out with what he did, and people are STILL giving the NSA and related groups anything approaching the benefit of the doubt. These guys can look into anything they want. The rules constraining them are a joke, they openly lie to the govt and the people about the extent of what they are doing, and even continue to get away with it even after numerous leaks have confirmed for the public that yes, they are abusing their powers in regards to our privacy. Yes, they are downloading sexually explicit pictures and laughing while they pass them around the office. Yes they are doing each and every thing we are worried about them doing. And apparently we are cool with it. Lets hope those in power don’t ever realize how much they COULD be doing to us at this point.
