Edward Snowden has again dropped a bombshell on the media! This is something that I was told about several years ago, but wasn’t sure how accurate it was…well, now we know.
The NSA has been converting (albeit imperfectly) your phone conversations to ‘searchable text’ with triggers in place to flag the transcripts for later review. According to a recently article release, this has been going on for at least 10 years. Yet, I have spoken with a retired Army veteran who worked in the area of intelligence and he stated this has been going on since the 70’s with reel-to-reel recorders. Certainly, not the technological leap of conversion of audible words to ‘searchable text’, but yet nothing too, awful new.
The technology is all there! Just as I wrote in my book, The Elevator, our cellphones can be our best friend or our worst enemy…I think the jury is still out on that.
In the past we were told that civilian GPS were only accurate within 30 feet or so. Then 3+, but the truth is that recently, in the news was released a report that GPS data can be narrowed to a margin of centimeters! Did you get that? Centimeters! This means they don’t just know what car you are in, but whether you are driving or in the passenger seat! They don’t just know what restaurant you are dining at, but which table you are at. The capability is already here…it’s all in my story, The Elevator, available on Amazon, Audible, Smashwords, iTunes, Barnes&Noble, and iBooks.
Thanks for tuning in…remember you’re on record…you have NO 5th Amendment now….
