New NSA article is behind a paywall. The juicy bits...

The groundbreaking new WSJ article on the NSA’s domestic spying is behind a paywall. Here’s the basics:

NSA can vacuum up "roughly 75% of all U.S. Internet traffic." Retains "contents of emails."

"Verizon Communications Inc. has placed intercepts in the largest U.S. metropolitan areas."

WSJ: New Details Show Broader NSA Surveillance Reach! Programs Cover SEVENTY-FIVE% of Nation's Traffic!

New Details Show Broader NSA Surveillance Reach
Programs Cover 75% of Nation's Traffic, Can Snare Emails

Updated August 20, 2013, 11:31 p.m. ET

WASHINGTON—The National Security Agency—which possesses only limited legal authority to spy on U.S. citizens—has built a surveillance network that covers more Americans' Internet communications than officials have publicly disclosed, current and former officials say.

The system has the capacity to reach roughly 75% of all U.S. Internet traffic in the hunt for foreign intelligence, including a wide array of communications by foreigners and Americans. In some cases, it retains the written content of emails sent between citizens within the U.S. and also filters domestic phone calls made with Internet technology, these people say.

The NSA's filtering, carried out with telecom companies, is designed to look for communications that either originate or end abroad, or are entirely foreign but happen to be passing through the U.S. But officials say the system's broad reach makes it more likely that purely domestic communications will be incidentally intercepted and collected in the hunt for foreign ones.

NSA Has Ability to Illegally Spy On 75% of All Internet Traffic
More evidence NSA surveils American people, not foreign terrorists

NSA would have us believe they only conduct surveillance on foreign terrorists, but this lie was recently put to rest in a Wall Street Journal article. In fact, according to current and former NSA officials, the agency has the ability to spy on 75 percent of all internet traffic in the United States, and probably more.

Following the September 11, 2001, attacks, the government began intercepting a wide array of communications. This, of course, is not news. In May, 2006, a former AT&T technician, Mark Klein, revealed how the NSA worked closely with telecoms to capture massive amounts of data from Americans not suspected of a crime or participating in terrorism.

The government claims it is only captures “metadata,” or data about data, but the Wall Street Journal report reveals this is little more than a flimsy government lie.
