VIDEO. CIA-Sponsored Trolls Monitor Internet & Interact With Users to Discredit Factual

QUOTE: Since the manufactured attack on 9/11, the US government has created a gvast domestic intelligence apparatush that spies on Americans and collects massive amounts of data to be profiled and used at the discretion of the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), local law enforcement, DHS and military criminal investigators. The FBI and NSA house more than 1.5 billion government and private sector profiles. The information on average citizens includes all sources of criminal and non-criminal databases that assist the US government in creating a filing system on each American. end quote] watcher51445
CIA-Sponsored Trolls Monitor Internet & Interact With Users to Discredit Factual Information
by Susanne Posel - Occupy Corporatism

In July of this year it became apparent through a flood of mainstream media reports that the National Security Agency (NSA) was gdesperate to hire new hacking talent to protect the nationfs critical infrastructureh yet the NSA is notorious for its surveillance programs on American digital activity.

David Petraeus, former director of the CIA, said at a summit for In-Q-Tel, that he was speculating on the ginternet of thingsh and that geTransformationalf is an overused word, but I do believe it properly applies to these technologies . . . particularly to their effect on clandestine tradecraft.h

Petraeus is seeking to better the CIAfs ability to create online identities for undercover spies. Currently, each internet user has a digital footprint that can trace the movements online to the person on the other end of the screen. Petraeus wants to utilize technology that will essentially erase a digital footprint; erasing all traces of anyone at the whim of the CIA.

In a possible preparation for the ability of the CIA to spy on American citizens with their household items, the NSAfs Utah Data Center is located in the Utah desert in the foot hills of the Wasatch mountain range. This is the centerpiece of the Global Information Grid; a military project that collects yottabytes of data. They are listening to every conversation, reading every post, intercepting every text message under the false flag of terrorism.

The facility has the technological ability to record and analyze every communication in the world. From emails to phone calls to text messages to chats; nothing is private anymore.

Based on gthreat Levelsh the NSA can use all the technology at their disposal to obtain information on:
¡ Finances
¡Stock transactions
¡ Business deals
¡Foreign military
¡Diplomatic secrets
¡Legal documents
¡Personal civilian communications

There is nothing in that article that states that government sponsored "trolls" are being used to discredit or interact with people directly. This is about eavesdropping and snooping on data to build profiles of people who are considered threats to national security for whatever absurd reason.
