NSA Dishfire program harvested 200 million text messages daily claims report
A new report has surfaced and the Telegraphreports that the NSA in the US has been running a program code-named Dishfire. Dishfire allegedly captured about 200 million textmessages each day. The original report startedwith the paper The Guardian and was based on material from a former NSA contractor named Edward Snowden.
The paper says that the NSA has a large database that is able to search metadata of communications of people in the UK. The report claims that information about people living in the US was minimized but numbers from othercountries including the UK were kept.
The program reportedly collected 194 million text messages each day on average in April of 2011. "The NSA has made extensive use of its vast text message database to extract information on people's travel plans, contact books, financial transactions and more - including of individuals under no suspicion of illegal activity," the Guardian report said.
The NSA maintained that the agency is focused on valid foreign threats. The NSA said, "As we have previously stated, the implication that NSA's collection is arbitrary and unconstrained is false." The agency's activities "are focused and specifically deployed against - and only against - valid foreign intelligence targets in response to intelligence requirements.
