Absence de malice

De la part de dianne feinstein, la fameuse sénatrice qui aimerait dans l’ordre faire interdire les armes et définir de façon rigide ce qu’est un journaliste; donc en fait abroger les premier et deuxième amendements de la constitution américaine. Rien que ça.

Etant donné que l’indélicate est aussi chairwoman du senate comittee on intelligence elle a aussi tout naturellement accès à des informations de première main.

C’est ce qui l’a poussée à en dire trop récemment en confirmant que la nsa écoutait directement le backbone d’internet. Rien que ça:

Dianne Feinstein Accidentally Confirms That NSA Tapped The Internet Backbone

from the but-of-course dept

It’s widely known that the NSA has taps connected to the various telco networks, thanks in large part to AT&T employee Mark Klein who blew the whistle on AT&T’s secret NSA room in San Francisco. What was unclear was exactly what kind of access the NSA had. Various groups like the EFF and CDT have both been asking the administration to finally come clean, in the name of transparency, if they’re tapping backbone networks to snarf up internet communications like email. So far, the administration has declined to elaborate. Back in August, when the FISA court declassified its ruling about NSA violations, the third footnote, though heavily redacted, did briefly discuss this “upstream” capability:In short, “upstream” capabilities are tapping the backbone itself, via the willing assistance of the telcos (who still have remained mostly silent on all of this) as opposed to “downstream” collection, which requires going to the internet companies directly. The internet companies have been much more resistant to government attempts to get access to their accounts. And thus, it’s a big question as to what exactly the NSA can collect via its taps on the internet backbone, and the NSA and its defenders have tried to remain silent on this point, as you can see from the redactions above.

Elle est donc coupable de trahison puisqu’elle a révélé des informations relevant du secret défense. Attendons de voir si elle sera jetée dans les cachots de guantanamo, mais ne retenons pas notre souffle pour autant.
