Snowden

According to new report published these days, National Security Agency has being monitoring online porn sites hosts, aimed to discredit people the agency believes are “radicalizing” others through incendiary speeches.

 

The Huffington Post informed that the document provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden explains the agency’s plan to reveal Islamic “radicalizers” while tracking their online habits to indicate pornographic websites hosts or used “sexually explicit persuasive language when communicating with inexperienced young girls.”

“Radicalizers appear to be particularly vulnerable in the area of authority when their private and public behaviors are not consistent,” the document states.

The report identifies six Muslim “globally-resonating radicalizers,” one of them a “U.S. person,” the agency term for an American citizen or permanent resident. Other suspects the agency believes reside outside of the U.S.

The NSA document was dated Oct. 3, 2012. It is the latest in a series of leaked documents provided by Snowden, who is living under asylum in Russia.

“Without discussing specific individuals, it should not be surprising that the US Government uses all of the lawful tools at our disposal to impede the efforts of valid terrorist targets who seek to harm the nation and radicalize others to violence.” – Shawn Turner, director of public affairs for National Intelligence, told The Huffington Post.

The NSA report states the necessity of exploiting electronic surveillance for that purpose to discredit potentially dangerous units.

“If people are engaged in trying to recruit folks to kill Americans and we can discredit them, we ought to,” former NSA general counsel Stewart Baker told the Post.
