Snowden Doc: NSA Can Now Collect 100 Percent Of All Your Phone Conversations

Before It’s News

The National Security Agency (NSA) has built a surveillance system that is capable of recording “100 percent” of a any country’s telephone calls, according to people with direct knowledge of the effort and documents supplied by former contractor Edward Snowden.

The (NSA) National Security Agency’s “Mystic” and “Retro” programs can store 100 percent of a nation’s phone conversations for up to a month, according to The Washington Post and documents leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.  

Although not specifying which nations at the request of US security officials, the Post believes the program has been deployed in at least five countries. These new revelations contradict President Barack Obama’s statement that the NSA does not spy on ordinary citizens. RT’s Gayane Chichakyan examines this latest breach of privacy by the government.

  1. I don’t think they’re listening to every phone call, and I think Edward Snowden’s “revelations” are only an attempt to silence dissent, and to keep people from discussing politics. He’s just part of the propaganda show, and so is the author.

    If they did record them all, and even if they did search their database for certain key-words, you’re still talking about a lot of man-hours to listen to all the calls that would result from any search. You have 300 million people, all of whom make at least one phone call per day, and usually many more, so how can they possibly sift through even a mere 1% of all those conversations? How many people would you have to hire to listen to 3 million calls per day? (that’s less than 1%, IF people only made one call per day)

    And I’m not even sure they can record them all, because although memory space is cheap, I’m not sure all phone conversations are even digitized.

    In short, Edward Snowden is a fraud who was invented to silence you, and the author is only propagating the myth because he’s working for them too.

    1. I don’t know the answer on that one (Snowden). Quite possible, what you say.

      I know that having enough people to listen to keywords and root out domestic terrorists is very unlikely. But I do think that the technology to record every digital conversation exists and to hold it in memory indefinitely, and whereas listening to every phone call for the heck of it is unlikely, if digital records are kept indefinitely and not expunged, there certainly is the possibility of combining metadata including phone conversations on particular individuals, if at some future point that person becomes a target OR designated patsy, or “important” in some way. THEN it is dug out of the archives and used.

      The squelching effect (silencing) is noted, and that is where I think it may be very important to be aware of the threat and not be frightened out of asserting and fighting for one’s rights and freedoms and continuing to speak out. This was all covered in Orwell’s 1984 (which of course didn’t end well…).

    2. Yes sir Jolly Roger. I agree with you, the logistics of it is near impossible. Snowden is smoke and mirrors, BIN seems to be also.
      And doesn’t RT have Larry “Noddingyahoo is my best buddy” King.
