Since June, we’ve learned that the NSA spies on just about everything we do in the name of stopping terrorism. As it turns out, the agency is even spying on our porn habits because it might just stop terrorists.

Fresh from his departure from The Guardian, Glenn Greenwald is now reporting on the latest Snowden leak from The Huffington Post. The latest revelation finds that the NSA is using its ability to snoop through browser histories to find ways to discredit those they consider “radicalizers.” Of course, that includes a person’s porn browsing history.

In the leaked document, the NSA says that it looks for porn habits, among other “vulnerabilities,” as they help to discredit those who speak out against the U.S. Here’s a list of vulnerabilities that the NSA looks for:

  • Viewing sexually explicit material online or using sexually explicit persuasive language when communicating with inexperienced young girls
  • Using a portion of the donations they are receiving from the susceptible pool to defray their own personal expenses
  • Charging an exorbitant amount of money for their speaking fees and being singularly attracted by opportunities to increase their stature
  • Being known to base their public messaging on questionable sources or using language that is contradictory in nature, leaving them open to credibility challenges
  • Despite describing the vices of the modern American evangelist, the NSA says these are merely some of the tools among many that they use to combat terrorism. What’s interesting, however, is that the six targets listed in the document have no actual ties to terrorism. They’re merely public persons that have views that could be considered anti-American, such as being of the opinion that America was behind the 9/11 attacks. While such views can certainly be criticized, it seems a little much to collect dossiers on their private Web browsing habits in an attempt to discredit them in the name of stopping terrorism.

    While there’s no evidence that the NSA has used this tactic on domestic targets, ACLU Deputy Legal Director, Jameel Jaffer, says that shouldn’t make Americans any less wary about its existence:

    “It’s important to remember that the NSA’s surveillance activities are anything but narrowly focused — the agency is collecting massive amounts of sensitive information about virtually everyone. Wherever you are, the NSA’s databases store information about your political views, your medical history, your intimate relationships and your activities online. The NSA says this personal information won’t be abused, but these documents show that the NSA probably defines ‘abuse’ very narrowly.”

    While the government’s tactic of discrediting opponents is nothing new, there needs to be strict limitations on its use. Revealing that a terrorist leader is into kinky porn could severely demoralize his movement, but the same shouldn’t be used against those calling for peaceful change in this country. After all, we don’t want a repeat of Hoover’s administration.

      ITS NOT HUMANLY POSSIBLE TO MAKE *REAL* SENSE OF THE DATA THEREFORE THE IDEA THAT THERE IS SENSE TO BE MADE FROM IT IS A LIE. IT ONLY “MAKES SENSE” WHEN THEY NEED IT TO BACK UP SOME IDEA…

      So if the data is a lie, then what is the point? Well, it’s not a war against radicals, its a war against intelligence.

      The idea of radicals is a front for a broader plan of attack. Anything a radical does, can be used to connect innocent people to a so called behavioral pattern displayed by a so called radical. ie watching internet pornography.

      The goal is not to publicly discredit anyone, they don’t need to do that. They need a way to legitimize any individual they choose as a bona-fide threat to national security. They do this by describing certain patterns of behavior as being “linked to radicalism”.

      Pornography is a great tool for them because of the huge social bias that exists against pornography… And yet, huge numbers of people have watched pornography. See what I’m getting at? It’s a tailor made way to connect someone to anyone or anything.

      So why do they need this behavioral connection? Why not just invent something? Because, they need to convince people, analysts, judges, senators, everyone in the chain, that SO AND SO, is a BAD PERSON because SO AND SO watches P-O-R-N on the I-N-T-E-R-N-E-T. They need to have a REAL LIFE scenario where you UNKNOWINGLY IMPLICATE YOURSELF while OTHERS WATCH.

      That’s how they get buy in. That’s why nobody asks questions… They really believe that SO AND SO IS A BAD BAD MAN/WOMAN… they WITNESSED IT.

      Have a great day! :D

      Who are we kidding? The NSA is collecting data on every person in THIS COUNTRY. Do you understand how much storage capacity they are building? If you don’t, go out to their own website and start reading. Any American who thinks they aren’t collecting this information on Americans is a fool.

      It is meaningless though. One study has shown that as much as 90% of Americans are looking at porn at least once a week. Literally, 90%. No one really cares. People may be shocked and outraged when they are in public, but they most definitely are going home and watching porn in the privacy of their own homes. Heck, just go out there and look at the shear number of different models in porn — professional and amateur and homemade —- you literally see millions of men and women in the pictures.

      My opinion on why people are using porn more now than ever —– because we are fat as hell in this nation and we are repressed. The average woman in porn weighs 117 lbs. The average woman in the real world is pushing 170 (167 to be exact). Also, America is really messed up compared to the rest of the world. Go to countries that have healthier attitudes towards sex. Much less problems. We know everyone likes sex. We know we are hardwired to have sex. We know our hormones promote us having sex. Yet, we fight against sex and make it dirty and taboo. It doesn’t make sense.

      Heck, we are the only country that will send a person to prison for decades when they have consensual sex and a person is underage. Out of a situation where no one is harmed —- we literally cause harm to a person by sending them to violent prisons and then giving that person a felony for life. That doesn’t make sense either. If two people choose to do something and no one is harmed — why in the world are we creating harm?
