Ed Snowden continues anti-American attacks, Part CIX.

Shocking news, people: the NSA wants to go after foreign hackers.  The nerve of them.  The absolute nerve.

In mid-2012, Justice Department lawyers wrote two secret memos permitting the spy agency to begin hunting on Internet cables, without a warrant and on American soil, for data linked to computer intrusions originating abroad — including traffic that flows to suspicious Internet addresses or contains malware, the documents show.

The Justice Department allowed the agency to monitor only addresses and “cybersignatures” — patterns associated with computer intrusions — that it could tie to foreign governments. But the documents also note that the NSA sought permission to target hackers even when it could not establish any links to foreign powers.

And, gee: can’t imagine why Ed Snowden might be ready to throw up protective ink for Russi… err, foreign hackers. Can’t imagine that at all. A mystery of the ages, that.

  1. Right, because the NSA has only your best interests at heart. It really doesn’t want to scrap the Constitution, spy on Americans outside the legal process, and feed intel to the ‘Justice’ department (which will lie about where the information originated as it seizes your assets if you are so much as suspected of once having had a doubleplus ungood thought). No, the NSA really just wants to help… who, exactly? Food for thought.

    1. You misspelled ‘Ed Snowden’ and ‘Green Greenwald,’ there – both of whom actually DO want to put people like me in a work camp. Unlike, say, the National Security Agency.
