Admiral Michael Rogers has quite a task afoot, as Director of the National Security Agency and the military's Cyber Command Mission Force. Speaking at a luncheon organised by retired Captain Kevin Wensing, Admiral Rogers said that the agency will eventually contain 6200 dedicated computer personnel split into 133 teams.
If you were Vladimir Putin, or President Xi of China, what would you do if you had the entire archive of Hillary Clinton's emails, classified and unclassified, "deleted" and not, in your hands? What value to you would that be in your next round of negotiations with the president of the United States?
The right to privacy is a constitutional gem. In the recent past it’s been assaulted and fraught with all manner of conspiracy theory. We are s...
Even in the era of widening partisan gaps, it would be ill-advised to throw around indictments willy-nilly. Voters use James Comey's statements for the insights on Clinton's fitness for the presidency, not prison.
In addition to its discussion of Saudi Consulate official Fahad Thumairy, there is also an FBI and CIA report that indicates that Khallad bin Attash was in Los Angeles in June 2000 -- compliments of "diplomatic arrangements" provided by Fahad Thumairy. To understand the relevance of this key piece of information, it is necessary to have some context.
If I had to choose one phrase to sum up America's efforts against terrorism since 9/11, it would be that lay definition of mental illness, doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.
In the wake of yet another bizarre and uniquely American mass shooting, we once again we find ourselves bombarded by copypasta Facebook rants and half-literate pleas by experts on television.
Speaking in a southern drawl from Memphis, Tennessee, Darryll Castle, Presidential nominee for the Constitution Party answered my questions.
As time passes following the FBI's announcement that it accessed the iPhone without Apple's help, I'm glad to see some of the answers are starting to take shape -- but the answers are not particularly good for Apple, or for the general public's right to privacy.
Perkins was recruited, he says, by the National Security Agency (NSA), but he worked for a private consulting company. His job as an undertrained, overpaid economist was to generate reports that justified lucrative contracts for U.S. corporations, while plunging vulnerable nations into debt.
Government eyes are watching you. They see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact, when you wake up...
This case is a poor vehicle for addressing, much less resolving, any of these perplexing and potentially conflicting constitutional concerns.
Binney spent over 30 years at the National Security Agency as a high-ranked official and left in 2002 after criticizing the agency's system for collecting data on Americans.
I'm not surprised that none of the candidates have spoken in favor of Snowden, but I just thought that if there was someone who would stand up for him, it would be Bernie Sanders.
Fear is why we saw the rise of mass surveillance, metadata collection and an invasion of our privacy. Fear is why people are okay with looking the other way when innocent civilians are killed from our wars. Are we now going to allow fear to drive us to give up even more of our liberties?
