ABC och nu “D”-krigföring: Der Spiegel om Edward Snowdens nya avslöjanden om NSA:s planer för elektronisk krigföring

Barack Obama kommer att minnas som presidenten som infördes historiens första massavlyssningsstat. Något som han återigen bevisade i sitt uttalande i fredags där han gjorde gemensam front med Storbritanniens premiärminister som redan har hotat med att blockera chatappar som WhatsApp och Snapchat om han inte får tillgång till deras data : Obama Sides with Cameron in Encryption Fight

President Barack Obama said Friday that police and spies should not be locked out of encrypted smartphones and messaging apps, taking his first public stance in a simmering battle over private communications in the digital age.

Apple, Google and Facebook have introduced encrypted products in the past half year that the companies say they could not unscramble, even if faced with a search warrant. That’s prompted vocal complaints from spy chiefs, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and, this week, British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Obama’s comments came after two days of meetings with Cameron, and with the prime minister at his side.

Men att Obama river ner skyddet för den amerikanska personliga integriteten är bara början. Som tyska Der Spiegel skriver i en stort upplagd artikel på engelska med ny avslöjanden från Edward Snowden.

According to top secret documents from the archive of NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden seen exclusively by SPIEGEL, they are planning for wars of the future in which the Internet will play a critical role, with the aim of being able to use the net to paralyze computer networks and, by doing so, potentially all the infrastructure they control, including power and water supplies, factories, airports or the flow of money.

From a military perspective, surveillance of the Internet is merely “Phase 0” in the US digital war strategy. Internal NSA documents indicate that it is the prerequisite for everything that follows. They show that the aim of the surveillance is to detect vulnerabilities in enemy systems. Once “stealthy implants” have been placed to infiltrate enemy systems, thus allowing “permanent accesses,” then Phase Three has been achieved — a phase headed by the word “dominate” in the documents. This enables them to “control/destroy critical systems & networks at will through pre-positioned accesses (laid in Phase 0).” Critical infrastructure is considered by the agency to be anything that is important in keeping a society running: energy, communications and transportation. The internal documents state that the ultimate goal is “real time controlled escalation”.

Det här är helt oförklarligt men visar samtidigt att när det gäller massavlyssning och drönarkrig så går det inte att skilja Obama från George Bush.

År för år blir dom allt mer lika varandra.

    De enda som kunde säga emot var de som var minst utvecklade. Fast det spelade ingen roll i slutändan, för de kunde inte handla emot.
