"To Kline, there could be only one answer. 'Based on my understanding of the connections and equipment at issue,' he said, 'it appears the NSA is capable of conducting what amounts to vacuum-cleaner surveillance of all the data crossing the Internet--whether that be people's e-mail, web surfing, or any other data...."

"FBI Seeking to Wiretap Internet" Fox, Oct 2001 The Federal Bureau of Investigation is seeking to broaden considerably its ability to tap into Internet traffic in its quest to root out terrorists, going beyond even the new measures afforded in anti-terror legislation signed by President Bush Friday, according to lawyers familiar with the FBI’s plans. Stewart Baker, an attorney at the Washington D.C.-based Steptoe & Johnson and a former general consul to National Security Agency, said the FBI has plans to change the architecture of the Internet and route traffic through central servers that it would be able to monitor e-mail more easily.

"FBI to Tap Internet" Wall Street Journal, Nov 11, 2001 The demands to add software and equipment have roiled the industry, which estimates it will cost more than $1 billion to comply with the FBI requirements, said Albert Gidari, a telecommunications lawyer at Perkins Coie LLP in Seattle, who has represented wireless companies on surveillance issues. The demands, he said, are "mind-boggling." Several industry officials said the FBI essentially wants direct access to voice communications, as the bureau now has with e-mail through the snooping technology known as Carnivore. An FBI spokesman declined to comment on the matter.

Big Brother on the Internet ZDNet, 2002 Last summer, a Pentagon analyst for "Special Operations and Low-Intensity Warfare" named Charles Swett wrote a 30-page report for his bosses in the Department of Defense (DoD).

DARPA's New Occult Logo with All-Seeing Eye 11/14/2002, The Cutting Edge Fourthly, the emphasis of this symbol is on the entire world, instead of the United States! In other words, even though John Poindexter's office of "Information Awareness Office" -- I.A.O. -- is supposedly an American office charged with gathering detailed information on Americans, the focus of this symbol is on the world, and upon Lucifer's watchfulness over the entire world!

The Eye Is Watching USA Daily, 11/21/02, Joe Sansone In a bizarre and frightening case of life imitating art, the United States defense department has created an office that seeks those same limitless powers as Tolkien’s dark lord. The Information Awareness Office (IAO) seeks what it calls “Total Information Awareness”. The agency has even adopted the new world order symbol of the pyramid with the all knowing eye hovering above it that is seen on the back of a one dollar Federal Reserve note. Taking the symbolism a step further, the eye casts its rays down upon the planet earth.

Beefed-up plan to spy on Internet New York Times, 12/20/2002 The Bush administration is planning to propose requiring Internet service providers to help build a centralized system to enable broad monitoring of the Internet and, potentially, surveillance of its users. The proposal is part of a final version of a report, "The National Strategy to Secure Cyberspace," set for release early next year, according to several people who have been briefed on the report. It is a component of the effort to increase national security after the Sept. 11 attacks.

FBI Pulls Open Net For Wiretapping Apr 4, 2003, AP NEW YORK - Wiretapping takes on a whole new meaning now that phone calls are being made over the Internet, posing legal and technical hurdles for the FBI as it seeks to prevent the emerging services from becoming a safe haven for criminals and terrorists. The FBI wants regulators to affirm that such services fall under a 1994 law requiring phone companies to build in surveillance capabilities. It also is pushing the industry to create technical standards to make wiretapping easier and cheaper.

Cable taps into wiretap law 03/2004, CNET March 16, 2004 By Ben Charny Staff, CNET : Vernon Irvin, executive vice president at security vendor VeriSign, said during a recent interview that his company had signed a deal with a "major cable operator" in the United States to help it follow CALEA. He did not identify the provider, but the source tagged Time Warner as the company. A Time Warner representative did not have an immediate comment. Irvin, however, did assert that other cable companies are sure to follow. That's because the FBI has made public a far-reaching proposal to require all broadband Internet providers--including cable modem and digital subscriber line (DSL) companies--to restructure their networks to support easy wiretapping by police.

FBI pushes for broadband wiretap powers ISPs, Net phone services would all have to rewire MSNBC, By Ben Charny, Updated: March 12, 2004 The FBI's request to the Federal Communications Commission aims to give police ready access to any form of Internet-based communications. If approved as drafted, the proposal could dramatically expand the scope of the agency's wiretap powers, raise costs for cable broadband companies and complicate Internet product development. Legal experts said the 85-page filing includes language that could be interpreted as forcing companies to build backdoors into everything from instant messaging and voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) programs to Microsoft's Xbox Live gaming service. The introduction of new services that did not support a back door for police would be outlawed, and companies would be given 15 months to make sure existing services comply.

FBI Plans To Track Suspects with Data-Mining Techniques Technology News: Networks: FBI Plans To Track Suspects with Data-Mining Techniques, By Gene J. Koprowski, TechNewsWorld 03/17/04 11:22 AM PT: Internet data, whether it is transmitted via a digital subscriber line (DSL), cable modem or dial-up modem, mixes and mingles with packets of data from thousands of other users. "As a result, any surveillance of Internet activity necessarily will encompass eavesdropping on pipelines of traffic of hundreds of nontargeted users to have any chance of successfully observing one 'individual of interest,'" said Getner.

Belgian police to snoop internet lines Expatica News, 16 April 2004 BRUSSELS - The League of Human Rights has slammed a "scandalous" move by the Belgian government to begin snooping on private email communications on the country's high-speed internet lines...................................

Wiretapping the Web MSNBC/August 13, 2004 By Brian Braiker Newsweek "As if hacking worries weren't enough, two recent legal developments have raised further fears among Web privacy advocates in the United States. In one case, the Federal Communications Commission voted 5-0 last week to prohibit businesses from offering broadband or Internet phone service unless they provide Uncle Sam with backdoors for wiretapping access. And in a separate decision last month, a federal appeals court decided that e-mail and other electronic communications are not protected under a strict reading of wiretap laws."
