Did you ever want to know what They want to know about you? Here's a list, synthesised from news reports concerning the "National HUMINT Collection Directive", sent by the US State Department to US diplomats around the world in July 2009:|
credit card details
frequent flyer numbers
details of security systems
specification of telecoms and IT systems
planned upgrades to telecoms and IT systems
physical network layout
Quite a laundry-list, just perfect for identity theft, stalking, fraud, and cracking. What use could such a wholesome organisation as the USG have for such a list? It's so odd, because their buddies at the FBI spend their lives busting people who do these very things.
Perhaps laws are just for cheese-eating foreigners?
