It's it's things that usually can upon -- would do show on them but the era. Things I think effective salt in their interest in things and think about. Shouldn't read on the top of us that we've we've done. So many shows and privacy invasions in this country and Auburn Koreans -- dale loans quickly things are changing. And read this to days in the New York Times. Recent revelations. That the national security and it's. Was able to drop on the communications of Google and Yahoo! users. With our.

Little assumed -- house without even going to Google and Yahoo! and demanding. That they give up whatever information -- -- one. So one when the brush there's -- homeowner that the companies that Google. Yahoo! and number of other companies. How owner of the dude. And just -- get their data without them knowing about it I mean there's a huge companies and their whole use of technology. Is being where all -- and communicating instantaneously. So. The leaders of those companies -- huge companies. Ask that you read NATO without -- can request should come into our company you're the sitting out the front door was some kind of a listening device. And be adventurers. Ocean. Fiberoptic cable -- They had these gigantic tables made of fiberoptic. And gators sooners were around the world and their own. Lives and some crow. DP grew from -- Vodafone group and a particular Level 3 Communications. In particular the fingers of Waldman pointed at level three. The world's largest so called Internet backbone. Whose cable or use grew grew -- move him. All the other major companies you can. Level -- fiber optic cables. The connected that the massive computer more is incidentally. If ever Google computer forms and it's been Wilson. Those that are behind Google and apple and Intel and owner owner on animals. Or usually very green business people aren't they're all about. The going is easier on the planet as you can but people -- these computer forms I think most embers still in North Carolina south route Caroline. And these or multiple. Football fields. Of computers. And that's where they they called the clock. That's were all of our information is -- And I forget it because I don't have a pulled up right now but their use of energy. Is she can't. A lot of -- has come from coal fired plants. Because that's the only indexes. Little Clinton. Mentioned. So in the meantime though we're talking about via auction cable so fiberoptic. And you've got. Everyone was focused on the Tennessee secretly getting taxes to the road to. There was assumptions they were going behind the company's backs in tapping data through the back door to nobody knew that they can do. And -- the Internet which effectively mean group's domestic and from communications. You -- it what to go bright line has been directed to protect against in the domestic surveillance. All the wounded the Internet designed to be highly decentralized. In particular small group broke backbone providers. -- almost all of the networks. Data. And at level three. Which is the one great thing. Inadvertently allowed the government to come in and stupid. Base and at Denver -- parts. News it's obviously helped movement in -- in the AT&T. But in terms of ability to carry traffic. Is bigger. Then the older two carriers Verizon and AT&T. Combine. What they did at level three. They have got a carrier. They got -- level. Of their technology. That was not encrypted. So the government going into the fiberoptic cables through the ocean. Was able to get in Google Yahoo! and others by that wrecked and when we come back we'll talk about the Middle East where I'm looking of these accidents. Private programs. Or so inspiring to some mass surveillance technologies. Did about a -- -- in particular developing countries. With the problems off the shelf equipment.

World of surreal and out there those Lincoln Obama. Number of things that that I put my stack of stuff that I've read so much -- it's still blown through iTunes library and trips including.

How in the current quarter or were with the you know people were the David where the people that they've been all this. How'd -- get a greater without us knowing about it in the hand through his. These gigantic. Ocean cable which -- fiber optics. That the national security agencies don't at least the supports suspected. The company -- and businesses with companies that. It's like -- and look at Michigan there that didn't burst sober they're called level three. And they are larger. Then Verizon and AT&T. Combine. And we seldom heard about. In there one of the backbone. Of the Internet. And apparently. Part of their operations for the fiber -- you know properly encode it so which we communicated that coached or treated about. What's. Brandon you concerning units and -- the revelations. And one of the Texas god says that and they've got a very good point. All emitter that's like comparing your garbage at home. Which put in the street no telling him concede that tell what you eat that night. And that's true we old bill. That would take a real match points. And putting anything even. Innocent questions. Can be. Interpreted by the government. As something seditious. And in today's the -- under reported out you can be thrown. On on the public torture table very easily. Put blacks are alternate. And the answers I guess. From the media experts. That. Make a living room. Trying to maintain her privacy. They're basically said the -- goal and I'm sure you're doing shows of privacy because their interests and but you can forget about. Are your -- privacy is call. Stood there are certain things you can do. I do I use web site called duck duck go never heard of that. I had a mommy hear them. Through four months ago. I heard about him -- there's -- yourself -- mr. Snowden. Was first breaking. Have been monitoring what what it is. Its web site where the government. Can't. Find out what you did. On that -- went to support. Just like Google but the government. Can go in and give all of this will be -- want to -- dog go but they can't find anything because Doug -- go. Says in their mission statement. So legally -- -- that they keep no records. And I asked a moral how do you. How do you make money and you see this is what they do.

The database called the surveillance industry in products. Shares opera and from UK Israel Germany -- humans. Offer governments of range -- system. That allowed him to secretly hacked. Into Internet cables. The fiberoptic ocean carrying cables. Carry all the email all on -- One firm. Literally bragged in this brochure. Some massive. Passive monitoring. Equipment that is. Capture up to one billion intercept today and some offered cameras hidden. In cold case. Bricks. In children's car seats. While one manufacture -- scores are veterans. In through surveillance control centers. None of it's illegal. New technology. We are total. Is there to help defeat terrorism in cross. And -- to me that's that's one of the problems right. Suppose we make unity really intelligent or. So while we should have our privacy. It's not. You like Big Brother. Fuels like the beginning beginnings of a surveillance state. But all they have to do is say one thing and -- two and all they do is say. You would be sent to one another 9/11. And and what to come back for that. No I'd I'd rather. Try and on eleven. Most of us would say you're right. Do what you gotta do you to shape and then. Good news for good bit -- something does. Another terrorist yet they will say see. We trojans. So they're there may not be in a way to get opera that. All of these systems. No longer. Joseph sour. As it said. -- active. Cable bearing. Surveillance equipment. Being sold. Throughout the middle -- Court technology designed to monitor and analyze in real time communications. Everything we do text and mobile calls. So I mean I've been building this email conversations. Webmail -- session social networks. The company brochures all these company brochures. Makes clear it's done by attaching -- Through the underwater. Internet fiber optic gave no cooperation. With providers. Is required. And again there's all out in the open -- nothing illegal about it. And in these companies. Their equipment is designed store billions. Trillions. Of records.

What happens is the passage of a very they use the passage of very small level electrical current. Through the targeted areas of the bring.
