By the first half of 2004, the National Security Agency was drowning in information. It had amassed 85 billion phone and online records and cut the ribbon on a new hacking center in Hawaii — but it was woefully short on linguists who could make sense of captured communications and lacked enough network analysts to effectively monitor all the systems it had hacked.
In the trove of documents provided by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden is a treasure. It begins with a riddle: “What do the President of Pakistan, a cigar smuggler, an arms dealer, a counterterrorism target, and a combatting proliferation target have in common? They all used their everyday GSM phone during a flight.”
This riddle appeared in 2010 in SIDtoday, the internal newsletter of the NSA’s Signals Intelligence Directorate, or SID, and it was classified “top secret.” It announced the emergence of a new field of espionage that had not yet been explored: the interception of data from phone calls made on board civil aircraft. In a separate internal document from a year earlier, the NSA reported that 50,000 people had already used their mobile phones in flight as of December 2008, a figure that rose to 100,000 by February 2009.
EDITOR'S NOTE: These fools are really trying to start WW3! Mr. Pike would be so proud! Obviously, they are not going to get their silly pipeline. They want to stop Russia from supplying Europe with natural gas! The US-backed war in Syria is a ruse to cripple Russia and to destroy any competition to a US-controlled New World Order.
The attack in Mezzeh is reported to have caused fires, but no casualties.
The Israeli military has made no comment, but it is the second time in a week that it is alleged to have carried out a strike on Syrian territory.
It is thought to have bombed weapons shipments intended for Lebanon's Hezbollah movement several times since Syria's civil war began in 2011.
Hezbollah, which fought a month-long war with Israel in 2006, has sent thousands of fighters to Syria to support President Bashar al-Assad's forces.
The Global Alliance for Justice – The Ethiopian Cause presents its most respectful compliment to His Holiness Pope Francis I and submits this appeal for justice on behalf of Ethiopia.
The Alliance (GAJEC) also wishes to express its respectful appreciation and thanks to Your Holiness for Your apology to the indigenous people of Latin America, and Your recognition of the Turkish genocide perpetrated against the Armenian people 101 years ago as well as the recent apology by the Catholic Church to the Rwandan people.
Masayoshi Son, the brash billionaire who controls Sprint Corp., said Tuesday he would invest $50 billion in the U.S. and create 50,000 new jobs, following a 45-minute private meeting with President-elect Donald Trump.
The telecom mogul, who made his fortune in Japan with SoftBank GroupCorp., announced his investment plans in the lobby of Trump Tower, though he didn’t provide details. Mr. Trump took credit for the investment, saying his November victory spurred SoftBank’s decision.
Mr. Son told reporters he planned to “invest into the new startup companies in the United States.” It would be difficult to create 50,000 jobs entirely by investing in startups, which generally employ few workers. Sprint employs about 30,000 people and has cut jobs to combat losses.
Due to the costs involved, television media has always been preferential to elites. But they will fail in covering up PizzaGate and the global Satanic cult it unveiled.

After years of fighting, the city is nearly entirely liberated, most US-backed terrorists agreeing to surrender, in return for safe passage to Idlib province.
The battle for Aleppo could be over in days, except perhaps for mopping up operations. Instead of acknowledging America’s humiliating defeat at the hands of Syria, Russia and allied forces, The Times merely said “Syrian forces (are) driv(ing) deeper into rebel-held Aleppo."
No rebels exist. All anti-government forces are US-backed terrorists, imported from scores of countries, doing America’s killing and dying for it. Of late, mostly dying.
The media protests PizzaGate too much. Something is odd here. The U.S. corporate media has never done a concerted push to warn viewers and readers about an incoming "fake news surge." NEVER.
