The NSA is doing what?

Postby Niner Alpha » Thu May 22, 2014 10:17 am

They are said to be recording, and keeping for a month at a time, every phone call in the the island nation of the Bahamas. Those tourists are going to have to be careful what that say after a few rum drinks.

SOMALGET is part of a broader NSA program called MYSTIC, which The Intercept has learned is being used to secretly monitor the telecommunications systems of the Bahamas and several other countries, including Mexico, the Philippines, and Kenya. But while MYSTIC scrapes mobile networks for so-called “metadata” – information that reveals the time, source, and destination of calls – SOMALGET is a cutting-edge tool that enables the NSA to vacuum up and store the actual content of every conversation in an entire country.
