Remember, the IG report also reveals that a "programming error" meant that a ton of phone calls placed from Washington DC were "intercepted" by the NSA (because someone typed in 202, DC's area code, instead of 20, Egypt's country code) -- and that mistake wasn't reported. That doesn't seem "incidental" to me.
When programming applications, if data validation isn't included its not an accident, its either by design or lack of funds. In this case, the NSA probably spec'd the system to be as free from restriction as possible so agents have maximum flexibility in running their searches. Therefore the program was never intended to be restrictive and subject to oversight, instead the NSA planned the system to be as permissive as possible. Also, agents have to report the "accidental" search results, how come the system isn't automatically finding these kind of results and creating a report? Sickening...
As a married adult without children, and no plans to have children, I want no scheme that interferes with my right to see distrubing, dirty, disgusting films (or any more bad 80s cartoon movies remade)! When will someone take into account my feelings on the subject and how these filters are going to deprive me of happiness?
We need a new depeartment to manage all of these drones since each agency is obviously incapable of it. Call it the Federal Use of Drones Department or the FUD for short. They can tell us all the things they are using drones for and assure us that nothing illegal is happening and our civil liberties are protected. It will be reassuring to get such messages from the FUD.
Wait if its wrong for Google/YouTube to profit from these videos, isn't it wrong for people to watch them and thus generate the revenue in the first place? Since Digital Citizens Alliance has found all these videos, they must have watched them, thus creating ad revenue for Google. Sounds like they are partners in the furtherance of a criminal enterprise.
