Wyden warns data collection under Patriot Act is 'limitless' | The Hill's Hillicon Valley

Wyden warns data collection under Patriot Act is 'limitless' | The Hill's Hillicon Valley | Killing The NSA....... | Scoop.it

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) on Tuesday urged the United States to revamp its surveillance laws and practices, warning that the country will "live to regret it" if it fails to do so.

"If we do not seize this unique moment in our constitutional history to reform our surveillance laws and practices, we will all live to regret it," Wyden said during a keynote address on the National Security Agency's data collection programs hosted by the Center for American Progress Action Fund. 

"The combination of increasingly advanced technology with a breakdown in the checks and balances that limit government action could lead us to a surveillance state that cannot be reversed," he added.


Wyden, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, warned that people's smartphones can be used as a tracking device to monitor their whereabouts and activities. He argued that privacy protections need to be put in place so the government cannot engage in mobile phone tracking in the future.

"The piece of technology we consider vital to the conduct of our everyday personal and professional life … happens to be a combination phone bug, listening device, location tracker and hidden camera," he said.

"Without adequate protections built into the law there’s no way that Americans can ever be sure that the government isn’t going to interpret its authorities more and more broadly, year after year, until the idea of a tele-screen monitoring your every move turns from dystopia to reality," Wyden added.

Rep. Mike Pompeo Says NSA's Metadata Program Is A Result Of The Way 'Government Is Supposed To Operate' | Techdirt

Rep. Mike Pompeo Says NSA's Metadata Program Is A Result Of The Way 'Government Is Supposed To Operate' | Techdirt | Killing The NSA....... | Scoop.it

Rep. Mike Pompeo who, along with Rep. Richard Nugent, whipped up the "red herring" amendment designed to draw support away from Rep. Justin Amash's more direct NSA-defunding effort, took to the mic to do a bit of orating before his amendment sailed through on a 409-12 vote.

Pompeo's amendment did little more than restate what the NSA already does while giving the appearance some sort of funding might be on the line. His amendment dealt with Section 702, which already forbids the targeting of Americans, something that hadn't been nearly as controversial as the NSA's "anything goes" interpretation of Section 215, which Amash's amendment targeted.

So, on his way to the hollowest of victories (status quo duly reinforced!), Pompeo stepped up to the podium to assure America that, thanks to his amendment, all would soon be right in the world.


"I want to make clear to everyone that contrary to the suggestions of some, the NSA has not been acting outside the scope of its authorities," he said on the House floor. "The metadata program is carefully designed with program layers of oversight by all three branches of government. This is precisely the way our government ought to operate: with input from Article I and Article 2 and Article III of the United States Constitution."


"Some" should be "many" and saying "acting outside the scope of its authorities" makes the assumption there's some sort of credible authority presiding over its actions. A "carefully designed" program doesn't tend to raise more questions than it answers when deployed. And as for Pompeo's "oversight" and reference to the system of checks and balances? Both are a complete, horrific joke at this point.

But there's more.

WikiLeaks Film to Open Toronto Film Festival

WikiLeaks Film to Open Toronto Film Festival | Killing The NSA....... | Scoop.it

The National Security Agency probably knew this already, but on Tuesday morning the organizers of the Toronto International Film Festival announced that the event will open this year with “The Fifth Estate,” Bill Condon’s biographical film about WikiLeaks, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange.

 

“The Fifth Estate” will be presented on Sept. 5 at the Toronto festival, which will run through Sept. 15 and close with “Life of Crime,” a thriller directed by Daniel Schechter and adapted from the Elmore Leonard novel “The Switch,” with a cast that includes Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, Isla Fisher and Will Forte.

 

Among the gala presentations that were announced for the festival are the world premieres of “August: Osage County,” John Wells’s film adaptation of Tracy Letts’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts and Ewan McGregor; and “Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom,” which stars Idris Elba as Nelson Mandela and Naomie Harris as Winnie Mandela in a biographical film by Justin Chadwick.

 

Special presentations at the festival will include “12 Years a Slave,” directed by Steve McQueen and starring Chiwetel Ejiofor; “Devil’s Knot,” Atom Egoyan’s film drama about the West Memphis Three murders; “Enough Said,” a new comedy by Nicole Holofcener; “Labor Day,” from Jason Reitman; and “You Are Here,” directed by the “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner.
