#NSA Prefers iPhone for Unconstitutional Spying

CNET.com reported yesterday that, based on classified documents retrieved by German news outlet, Spiegel, the NSA has “created platform-specific working groups to tap the contact lists, SMS traffic, and user location information on the Apple iOS, Google Android and BlackBerry mobile operating systems.”

However, today CNET reveals that Apple’s iPhone is actually the NSA’s favorite for stalking Americans, warrant-free.

Why? Well, the NSA has programs called “scripts”, which can spy on over 30 features of the phone’s operating system. This includes everything from voicemail, to photos, to social media applications- like Facebook.

Agents have tapped into photos taken by the iPhone, according to the documents obtained by Spiegel. As one example, a photo taken in January 2012 shows a former senior government official of a foreign country relaxing on his couch in front of his TV. He’s taking pictures of himself…with his iPhone. The man’s name and other details were apparently revealed in the documents, but Spiegel chose not to print them.

That’s right, folks. The NSA can see your “selfies”.

Scared yet?

Good blog post, LibertyBelle!

Oh My Gawd! >>>>> That’s right, folks. The NSA can see your “selfies”.< 

Now that is scary! It's scary that they can do and see whatever they want. I feel more and more like I am living under Hitler. I understand just how you feel about some sick people, (and there are sick people everywhere, even in the NSA) going into anyones phone and taking what they want! What if you take a pic of your child having a bubble bath, or when a child runs around naked as you chase them to get their clothes on. Then some pervert working in the NSA takes them right off your phone.  There is abuse of that power, no matter where you look, in all walks of life. This has to be stopped.   

Tweeting this out!

Wow, and exactly why is Samsung and others copying the iPhone?  Great post!

Why did I give up my rotary-dial phone?  At least I knew it had a party line.

Comment by Jerseygal on September 10, 2013 at 7:38pm

JB, I wonder how many do not even know what a 'party line' was! LOL

Comment by D.A. on September 10, 2013 at 7:46pm

What the heck is a 'selfie'?

Comment by Robin on September 10, 2013 at 7:53pm

LOL, DA! A selfie is a picture you take of yourself!

Comment by JeansBrother on September 10, 2013 at 8:01pm

JG, the news would indicate that we all now have a party line, but not with our neighbors, just our big brother!

Comment by D.A. on September 10, 2013 at 8:10pm

Why would I want to take a picture of myself?

Comment by Jodi180 on September 10, 2013 at 9:56pm

Because, DA....it's 'the thing to do'.

Sheesh...wake up and smell the coffee shop that's in every revitalized downtown area.

Terrible generalization, as I enjoy Starbucks (which supports the 2nd amendment), and am also an iPhone user. If you see my posts, I'm quite far from ever being a "liberal".

How about no one gets spied on unless there is a warrant and probable cause, like our founding document states? Just saying. :-)
