CIA Chief Brennan: Social Media Making Terror War Harder —

I agree. Facebook and Twitter are disruptive to government control. Too much data. Impossible to analyse. And email.

Next step is to encrypt everything. Must do for protection. If govt can spy then criminals can too. Break in and steal.

Must fix the weakest links or Russia China will become rich internet masters selling security to USA!

CIA Chief: Social Media Making [FAKE] Terror War Harder

Terrorist Groups Too Decentralized, Complains Brennan

by Jason Ditz, March 13, 2015

In a speech today in New York, CIA Director John Brennan warned that social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook are “greatly amplifying” the dangers of terrorism.

Brennan complained social media allows the groups to recruit online, and allows sympathizers to learn how to carry out attacks without ever having to leave their homes.

Brennan went on to warn that the rise of the Internet had allowed terrorism to became much more decentralized, and that much harder for the US government to get a handle on.

The CIA chief’s comments reflect similar complaints from other nations about the rise of the Internet, notably Turkey, where officials have complained Twitter is a bigger threat to their continued rule than car bombings.

Absent from Brennan’s comments were any proposed course of action, though the understood implication is that US intelligence agencies will continue to demand unfettered surveillance powers over the Internet, irrespective of privacy concerns.
