Death By Unreliable Metadata
-By Caleb Jones
The NSA “geolocates” the SIM card or handset of a suspected terrorist’s mobile phone, enabling the CIA and U.S. military to conduct night raids and drone strikes to kill or capture the individual in possession of the deviceOh c'mon. Obama's a nice guy. He wouldn't do that. We can trust our government. That must be the odd exception to the rule.
“Once the bomb lands or a night raid happens, you know that phone is there,” he says. “But we don’t know who’s behind it, who’s holding it.
The former drone operator also says that he personally participated in drone strikes where the identity of the target was known, but other unknown people nearby were also killed.
“They might have been terrorists,” he says. “Or they could have been family members who have nothing to do with the target’s activities.”...Others, unaware that their mobile phone is being targeted, lend their phone, with the SIM card in it, to friends, children, spouses and family members.
“Everything they turned into a kinetic strike or a night raid was almost 90 percent that”By the way, this is the same metadata the government is collecting on us Americans. You know, those billions of gigabytes of data they said they would never use?
The article closes with my favorite Barack Obama quote:
Obama once reportedly told his aides that it “turns out I’m really good at killing people.”Don't look at me. You guys voted for this man. Twice.
The president added, “Didn’t know that was gonna be a strong suit of mine.”
Hope and change.
