edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for National Security Agency:
  • Check every reference. In the history section alone, we had "Herbert Brownell" in here who was not the right Brownell. Unfortunate things like that get copied forward untold times on the internet.
  • Updates possible for Terrorist Attacks prevented by Domestic Surveillance section. Cases that possibly involved the NSA can be found here....List of unsuccessful terrorist plots in the United States post-9/11. Further research must be done to determine which cases the NSA took part in.
  • Get ready for B class.
  • Update possible regarding surveillance under Obama administration to include tapping of German Chancellor's phone. Also, DDoS attack on October 25, 2013 in response to US spying on friends/allies.

satellite program to spot individuals by satellite according to aura[edit]

NSA has got a secret satellite program to spot any living individual via satellite due to individual energetical aura. They share this technology with other services. It is projected to trace individual thought patterns, too, in a soonish future.

"Hacking operations

Besides the more traditional ways of eavesdropping in order to collect signals intelligence, NSA is also engaged in hacking computers, smartphones and their networks. These operations are conducted by the Tailored Access Operations (TAO) division. [...] Microsoft Windows Main article: _NSAKEY

_NSAKEY was a variable name discovered in Microsoft's Windows NT 4 Service Pack 5 (which had been released unstripped of its symbolic debugging data) in August 1999 by Andrew D. Fernandes of Cryptonym Corporation. That variable contained a 1024-bit public key."

Suggests that _NSAKEY in fact refers to a "hacking operation" which is just a conspiracy theroy.
