A brand-new website, NSA Haiku, takes words from the NSA’s watchlist of bad words and mixes them up to create weird and wonderful mashups of seditious and subversive haiku. From the resulting works of art, it’s clear that those NSA spooks are very interested in sex and suspicious packages.
“The president, the NSA, and their lawyers have tried to deflect public outrage by distorting the facts and misleading the public about the process,” LIlly says.

This NSA document seems to prove once and for all that American three-letter agencies do indeed possess strong capabilities for both finding vulnerable computers and then hacking or cracking them to aide in investigations.
XKeyscore is a massive big data collection, warehousing, and analysis program that, if we can believe what Snowden is saying, basically lays bare your and my entire digital selves. Essentially, we’re Frodo and Sam, and the NSA is the Eye of Sauron — but better, smarter, more powerful.
