The New Thought Police
The NSA Wants to Know How You Think—Maybe Even What You Think
- By James Bamford
- Posted 01.01.09
The National Security Agency (NSA) is developing a tool that George Orwell's
Thought Police might have found useful: an artificial intelligence system
designed to gain insight into what people are thinking.
With the entire Internet and thousands of databases for a brain, the device
will be able to respond almost instantaneously to complex questions posed by
intelligence analysts. As more and more data is collected—through phone calls,
credit card receipts, social networks like Facebook and MySpace, GPS tracks,
cell phone geolocation, Internet searches, Amazon book purchases, even E-Z Pass
toll records—it may one day be possible to know not just where people are and
what they are doing, but what and how they think.
The system is so potentially intrusive that at least one researcher has quit,
citing concerns over the dangers in placing such a powerful weapon in the hands
of a top-secret agency with little accountability.
The National Security Agency's eavesdropping on phone calls, e-mails,
and other communications skyrocketed after 9/11. But that was only the
beginning of its high-tech invasiveness, as Bamford reports. Above, NSA
headquarters in Fort Meade, Maryland.

Known as Aquaint, which stands for "Advanced QUestion Answering for
INTelligence," the project was run for many years by John Prange, an NSA
scientist at the Advanced Research and Development Activity. Headquartered in
Room 12A69 in the NSA's Research and Engineering Building at 1 National Business
Park, ARDA was set up by the agency to serve as a sort of intelligence community
DARPA, the place where former Reagan national security advisor John Poindexter's
infamous Total Information Awareness project was born. [Editor's note: TIA was a
short-lived project founded in 2002 to apply information technology to counter
terrorist and other threats to national security.] Later named the Disruptive
Technology Office, ARDA has now morphed into the Intelligence Advanced Research
Projects Activity (IARPA).
A sort of national laboratory for eavesdropping and other spycraft, IARPA
will move into its new 120,000-square-foot home in 2009. The building will be
part of the new M Square Research Park in College Park, Maryland. A mammoth two
million-square-foot, 128-acre complex, it is operated in collaboration with the
University of Maryland. "Their budget is classified, but I understand it's very
well funded," said Brian Darmody, the University of Maryland's assistant vice
president of research and economic development, referring to IARPA. "They'll be
in their own building here, and they're going to grow. Their mission is

citizens' communications overseen by the NSA "the

If IARPA is the spy world's DARPA, Aquaint may be the reincarnation of
Poindexter's TIA. After a briefing by NSA Director Michael Hayden, Vice
President Dick Cheney, and CIA Director George Tenet of some of the NSA's data
mining programs in July 2003, Senator Jay Rockefeller IV, the vice chairman of
the Senate Intelligence Committee, wrote a concerned letter to Cheney. "As I
reflected on the meeting today," he said, "John Poindexter's TIA project sprung
to mind, exacerbating my concern regarding the direction the administration is
moving with regard to security, technology, and surveillance."
The original goal of Aquaint, which dates back to the 1990s, was simply to
develop a sophisticated method of picking the right needles out of a vast
haystack of information and coming up with the answer to a question. As with
TIA, many universities were invited to contribute brainpower to the project. But
in the aftermath of the attacks on 9/11, with the creation of the NSA's secret
warrantless eavesdropping program and the buildup of massive databases, the
project began taking on a more urgent tone.
"Think of 2001: A Space Odyssey and the most memorable
character, HAL 9000. We are building HAL."
In a 2004 pilot project, a mass of data was gathered from news stories taken
from the New York Times, the AP news wire, and the English portion
of the Chinese Xinhua news wire covering 1998 to 2000. Then, 13 U.S. military
intelligence analysts searched the data and came up with a number of scenarios
based on the material. Finally, using those scenarios, an NSA analyst developed
50 topics, and in each of those topics created a series of questions for
Aquaint's computerized brain to answer. "Will the Japanese use force to defend
the Senkakus?" was one. "What types of disputes or conflict between the PLA
[People's Liberation Army] and Hong Kong residents have been reported?" was
another. And "Who were the participants in this spy ring, and how are they
related to each other?" was a third. Since then, the NSA has attempted to build
both on the complexity of the system—more essay-like answers rather than yes or
no—and on attacking greater volumes of data.
The NSA would essentially like to create the spy-agency equivalent of
"HAL 9000," the computer in the 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey
that converses with the astronaut David Bowman (played by Keir Dullea).

"The technology behaves like a robot, understanding and answering complex
questions," said a former Aquaint researcher. "Think of 2001: A Space Odyssey
and the most memorable character, HAL 9000, having a conversation with David. We
are essentially building this system. We are building HAL." A naturalized U.S.
citizen who received her Ph.D. from Columbia, the researcher worked on the
program for several years but eventually left due to moral concerns. "The system
can answer the question, 'What does X think about Y?'" she said. "Working for
the government is great, but I don't like looking into other people's secrets. I
am interested in helping people and helping physicians and patients for the
quality of people's lives." The researcher now focuses on developing similar
search techniques for the medical community.
A supersmart search engine, capable of answering complex questions such as
"What were the major issues in the last 10 presidential elections?" would be
very useful for the public. But that same capability in the hands of an agency
like the NSA—absolutely secret, often above the law, resistant to oversight, and
with access to petabytes of private information about Americans—could be a
privacy and civil liberties nightmare. "We must not forget that the ultimate
goal is to transfer research results into operational use," said Aquaint project
leader John Prange, in charge of information exploitation for IARPA.
In George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984, a civil servant
named Winston Smith (played in the 1955 movie by Edmond O'Brien, seen
here) loses all privacy as Big Brother and his Thought Police bring him
under constant surveillance. Is the NSA today's Big Brother?

Once up and running, the database of old newspapers could quickly be expanded
to include an inland sea of personal information scooped up by the agency's
warrantless data suction hoses. Unregulated, they could ask it to determine
which Americans might likely pose a security risk—or have sympathies toward a
particular cause, such as the antiwar movement, as was done during the 1960s and
1970s. The Aquaint robospy might then base its decision on the type of books a
person purchased online, or chat room talk, or websites visited—or a similar
combination of data. Such a system would have an enormous chilling effect on
everyone's everyday activities—what will the Aquaint computer think if I buy
this book, or go to that website, or make this comment? Will I be suspected of
being a terrorist or a spy or a subversive?
Controlling brain waves
Collecting information, however, has always been far less of a problem for
the NSA than understanding it, and that means knowing the language. To expand
its linguistic capabilities, the agency established another new organization,
the Center for Advanced Study of Language (CASL), and housed it in a building
near IARPA at the M Square Research Park. But far from simply learning the
meaning of foreign words, CASL, like Aquaint, attempts to find ways to get into
someone's mind and understand what he or she is thinking.
Like something out of a B-grade sci-fi movie, CASL is even training
employees to control their own brain waves.
One area of study is to attempt to determine if people are lying simply by
watching their behavior and listening to them speak. According to one CASL
document, "Many deception cues are difficult to identify, particularly when they
are subtle, such as changes in verb tense or extremely brief facial expressions.
CASL researchers are studying these cues in detail with advanced measurement and
statistical analysis techniques in order to recommend ways to identify deceptive
Ever watching and listening: a control room at NSA headquarters.

Another area of focus explores the "growing need to work with foreign text
that is incomplete," such as partly deciphered messages or a corrupted hard
drive or the intercept of only one side of a conversation. The center is thus
attempting to find ways to prod the agency's cipher-brains to fill in the
missing blanks. "In response," says the report, "CASL's cognitive neuroscience
team has been studying the cognitive basis of working memory's capacity for
filling in incomplete areas of text. They have made significant headway in this
research by using a powerful high-density electroencephalogram (EEG) machine
acquired in 2006." The effort is apparently directed at discovering what parts
of the brain are used when very good cryptanalysts are able to guess correctly
the missing words and phrases in a message.
Like something out of a B-grade sci-fi movie, CASL is even trying to turn
dull minds into creative geniuses by training employees to control their own
brain waves: "The cognitive neuroscience team has also been researching
divergent thinking: creative, innovative and flexible thinking valuable for
language work. They are exploring ways to improve divergent thinking using the
EEG and neurobiological feedback. A change in brain-wave activity is believed to
be critical for generating creative ideas, so the team trains its subjects to
change their brain-wave activity."

Facebook Is The Thought Police
Sunday, December 23, 2012 7:24
Facebook has always been morphing, despite many users’ calls of “if it
ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” It has survived long term, longer than
LiveJournal and MySpace, and it survived the recent hype of Google+. It is
the social media giant; everybody has it. If you don’t, either you’re old or
there’s something wrong with you.
Facebook is the place where you pour out your feelings, share funny or
uplifting memes, talk about snippets of your day, or go on political rants.
Facebook, this silly website that uses up WAY too much of your time, is a
window into your soul.
It was nice and innocent back when Mark Zuckerberg privately owned it.
But earlier this year, it went public, up on the chopping block on Wall
Street. It was supposed to be big; it was supposed to make people rich.
Then They made the prices fall. Late summer it bottomed out at half of
what the starting price had been. They, the Shadow Government run by rich
fat cats and big banks, wanted to do more than just get their paws on the
stock. They wanted to buy it up cheap.
Now, some strange things are happening in Facebook Land. There will be a
paid messaging system, where strangers can
pay to have messages delivered to your Inbox. Companies will have access
to force spam advertisements upon you with no more filters. It will be as
bad as walking to your real-life mailbox and getting all credit card
applications in the mail. And you can’t do anything to stop it.
In the wake of Sandy Hook, some users are receiving
threats of account suspension if they question the story of the
massacre. This is only the beginning of censorship.
Now that They are shareholders, thus partial owners of the company, They
have the power to warp Facebook to suit Their needs. They can track down
those who disagree with Their agenda; it is easy to do. We enable Them, we
are just as much at fault. We fall into the pool of social media and have
the false sense of security with “Privacy Settings.” Little do we realize
that someone is peeping over the fence, watching us skinny dip.
Of course, now, Facebook is deeply engrained into our lives. It’s where
we store our pictures. It’s where we talk to our friends. It’s where we can
communicate with people thousands of miles away. It’s where we can show
pieces of our life; it shows that we exist.
There really is no breaking free of it. If you try, you face isolation.
But watch what you say. Big Brother is watching.
Facebook Acting As The Thought Police
weekend, acting like the thought police in Orwell’s book 1984,
Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC
(SOS), which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the
forces being overrun in Benghazi.
The Benghazi story i.e. president Obamas failure to send help to
a U.S. diplomat and a couple of Navy Seals while they were being
murdered, and the lies and cover-up that followed is a huge story
and one that should be explored fully, but clearly Facebook
disagrees. Not only do they disagree, the powers that be at Facebook
will punish you by suspending your account if you espouse ANY views
that run counter to their globalist goals.
Their decision to attack freedom of speech speaks volumes about
their politics and their willingness to wield their power and to
promote their world view and globalist goals at the expense of the
truth, individual freedom and liberty.
Its sad that something like Facebook that could be used as a tool
to uncover truth, to further mans knowledge and to improve mans
condition is instead being used by the power elite to hide the
truth, to not allow it to be explored and to expand the police
It may seem an overstatement to equate Facebooks actions with the
Thought Police from Orwell’s 1984, but I don’t think so. Facebook is
in its infancy as a listening device or the “ears” of Big Brother
hearing the thoughts and wishes of the population for the eventual
purpose of that information being used against the population. The
“ears” are being merged with the “eyes” of Google Earth, Google
Apples “location services” as well as other systems to keep
close watch on the population lest the elite lose their power over
The information gathered about its users is currently being used
to shape the battlefield of ideas and to promote a collectivist,
statist, and globalist viewpoint. So any information (like a
socialist president caught in a lie) that supports a conservative or
libertarian viewpoint will not be tolerated on sites like Facebook.
So… do yourself a favor; punch big brother in the nose and ditch
your Facebook account.
Becoming a target for the Thought Police…
It seems that writing my first blog post is a daunting task. I want to
write about a hundred and one things. I want to impress with my literary
skills in the hopes that maybe one person will stumble across the blog and
be suckered into coming back for more. I want to establish a voice; a trust;
I expect too much from one blog post, I think.
So, I’ll go with the tried and true principle of keeping it simple. My
name is DeeAnna. My blog is titled Destiny and Choices. The name means a lot
to me. It has religious significance which would be quite complicated to
discuss. That’s a blog for another time. For now, I’d like to explain the
practical meaning of the title.
I believe in making good choices. Sounds so elementary, I know, but I
also think that making good choices is very difficult. Our culture is
confusing. Our emotions are driving. Our instincts can be less than
trustworthy. I think it’s important to sort through all of these things and
make great choices. Our choices affect everything. They affect others in
ways that we cannot imagine when we make our choices. And, since my choices
affect you, and yours affect me, I think it’s logical to discuss those
choices in an open and honest way. I want to wrestle with issues together. I
want to pursue “the most right choices.”
I’m incredibly dissatisfied with the way “discussion” is handled in our
society. For a long time now, I’ve felt as if we, as a whole, are just
missing EVERYTHING. I know so many people who have literally given up on
conversation because they find it’s just too difficult to communicate. They
have retreated into themselves as a sort of self-defense. They have thoughts
they feel no one else could understand. They have feelings they believe no
one else cares about. When they do try to be vulnerable, they frequently get
hurt by the person they trusted, so they no longer open up. There’s the
overwhelming feeling (amongst the people I know) that it’s just better not
to discuss deeper issues. We try to keep it light. We discuss the weather,
we praise art and music, and we spend a large amount of time examining our
favorite TV shows and movies. We bond, but we don’t really know each other.
This fact became obvious to me when I joined Facebook. I was late to the
Facebook party; I’ve had a profile page for less than a year. I’ve been
consistently shocked by my friends, and they’ve been consistently shocked by
me. I had a friend for over 4 years. I saw her nearly every week, and
enjoyed her company and personality immensely. We friended on Facebook, and
before I knew it, she had become angry enough with me to unfriend me. I
reached out to her to try to heal the relationship, but haven’t been able to
(yet). I’ve pondered that event a lot over the last few months. I genuinely
call this person my friend. I spent a lot of time with her, and talked with
her for hours upon hours. How could a few online posts have changed her
opinion of me in such a way? I’ve decided that the answer isn’t complicated.
We didn’t really get to know each other, in all the time we spent together,
because we spent our time talking about things that were agreeable… And thus
never ran into a single important topic that we could tackle together. I
believe she found out (through Facebook) that she was fond of a person who
didn’t exist. She thought I was what our conversations were: Surface level,
agreeable, and above all safe.
That is not who I am. Every opinion I have comes from somewhere much
deeper than my surface. I am not agreeable for agreement’s sake. I believe
some things are worth vigorous disagreement. I believe some values are worth
the sacrifice of unity. I believe “safe” conversations have their place, but
the important conversations are never safe. If we want to truly know each
other, we must take the risk of having hard conversations. This is how real
friends are made. This is how we truly unify. This is how we begin to truly
love one another for who we are, rather than loving an idea of a person who
No one is happy with our culture. We all identify big problems. We may
disagree about what the problems are, but we know there are things which
must be fixed. The more we shy away from these important conversations, the
less likely those problems will be corrected. I get the distinct feeling
that we are all walking on eggshells, all the time. It’s exhausting, and
it’s wrong. There will be no eggshells here. There will only be me, for
better or worse. I expect that most people will not enjoy this blog, but
that’s okay. If I can encourage just one person to open up, face the hard
conversations, and make the most right choices, then that will be great. If
not, then I still have a creative outlet in which to write. I just like to
write; writing’s my favorite.
So, Choices and Destiny: It’s just me, writing because writing’s my
favorite. We’ll talk about faith, family, parenting, friends, pets, money,
marriage, sex, politics, food, exercise, and anything else I can think of
that’s important. If I think about it, I’ll probably write about it. I’m
going to try to do so respectfully and prayerfully. I don’t want to give the
impression that I blog just to enjoy the experience of my own opinions. I
genuinely want discussion. Feel free to ask questions or leave comments. You
may inspire my next blog.
Good choice of the day: Taking time to read my first post. Thanks!
