1.1K Shares Share A lot of people are aware of the NSA’s dragnet surveillance of millions of Americans’ phone records.
But many don’t realize how the agency’s surveillance activities are even worse.
Today, Ars is launching a new project to highlight some of the most egregious examples of this surveillance.
Today we’re releasing an infographic, which we’re calling The Dragnet, that shows the NSA spying on Americans’ metadata.
The story of the dragnet is told in the graphic, which shows a wide array of metadata that includes emails, text messages, photos, and even the names of people.
The NSA can access that information, including everything from the phone numbers of calls to the locations of the people involved, and the NSA can even access that data in bulk.
And it’s all collected without warrants.
It’s the sort of thing the government could collect if it wanted to.
In a new story published in The Intercept, journalist Laura Poitras documents the dragfests she and her team have been conducting over the past few years in which they’ve documented the NSA using this metadata to track down people and track them down in ways that would make Edward Snowden proud.
The graphic also shows how the dragnets have been used to collect data on Americans and to identify and track terrorists.
The Intercept’s story includes a detailed description of the data the NSA has collected in this way, and it shows how metadata that’s not about terrorism is being collected by the NSA in the US.
The data collection that was described in the story includes everything from what the FBI calls a “possible criminal suspect” (or a person they suspect is involved in terrorism), to “a possible terrorist,” to a “potential political opponent,” and “a potential whistleblower.”
In some cases, the NSA collects information on the location of the person who makes the call.
In other cases, it collects information about where the person is on the phone, or the time and location of a particular call.
The details of the metadata collection that the NSA is doing to track Americans’ locations is a lot more than a collection of phone numbers.
The program is so vast that the only way the NSA could be doing that is by tapping into the phone’s metadata.
It would also be very difficult to stop the NSA from doing that, since it would have to tap into all of the phone calls made over the phone.
In order to stop a collection like this, the only thing the NSA would have access to is the phone number of the calling party.
But because metadata is so vague and hard to collect, the government has a good argument that they could use this to trace people’s locations.
The dragnet program was revealed in the Guardian in 2013 and became a big story in 2015, when Edward Snowden revealed that the US had been collecting data on millions of US citizens.
The ACLU has since filed an amicus brief in support of the US government’s effort to challenge this program, and has even gone so far as to call for a judicial review of the court orders in this case.
It looks like a dragnet isn’t going away anytime soon.
The EFF, EFF-USA, and many others have been working on a legal challenge to the dragnads.
The government says the drag-net collection is legal, but the US Constitution is clear on this.
The Constitution says that the “power to collect and use information shall not be delegated to any department or agency of the United States.”
It’s also clear from the court order that the government is in the process of using the dragNET program to spy on Americans.
As Ars has previously reported, the court has been extremely reluctant to rule on the legality of the bulk data collection program.
But today’s ruling in the case that the ACLU is challenging does leave room for the government to argue that the drag net program is legal.
In an article published in Foreign Policy last month, journalist Matt Yglesias noted that the ruling is “more about the government’s desire to build a wall than a legal argument.
And the government will not be able to prove that the metadata dragnet violates the Constitution by any stretch of the imagination.
The US government has made no attempt to show that the program violates the Fourth Amendment.”
The dragnets are being used for all kinds of things, and that includes terrorism.
The metadata collection is used to track the movements of people who might be considered a threat to the US and its allies, as well as those people who have made phone calls to or received emails from foreign targets.
The information collected about Americans and foreigners also includes their locations and emails.
If the government wants to find out where a particular person is or what he or she did in the past, it can track that person down and gather that information.
The vast majority of Americans are not involved in terrorist activity, and there’s nothing in the Constitution that allows the government dragnet the phone records of millions or even billions of people in order to track them and track those people down. The
