    A high-tech United States surveillance tool which sweeps up all communications without a warrant was sent to New Zealand for testing on the public, according to an espionage expert.

    The tool was called ThinThread and it worked by automatically intercepting phone, email and internet information.

    ThinThread was highly valued by those who created it because it could handle massive amounts of intercepted information. It then used snippets of data to automatically build a detailed picture of targets, their contacts and their habits for the spy organisation using it.

    Those organisations were likely to include the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) after Washington, DC-based author Tim Shorrock revealed ThinThread was sent to New Zealand for testing in 2000-2001.

    Misandry saidIts called karma. Whats Hong King like this time of year.


    Karma? exactly whom are you implying to at the receiving end of this karma? Because all I can tell from the article is the fact that US, rather than conducting this in its own land, decided to make a whole bunch of people from New Zealand out to be as worthy of respect and dignity as a lab rat.

    from above:

    " Because all I can tell from the article is the fact that US, rather than conducting this in its own land, decided to make a whole bunch of people from New Zealand out to be as worthy of respect and dignity as a lab rat."

    THE FACT ???

    Actually, the article presented here by RJ's busiest disinformation specialist does not offer a FACT. It presents a story with the dubious support of " according to an espionage expert."

    Ask yourself this: could this have prevented the Boston Marathon attack?

    I think it could. What's NZ like?
