With all the controversy surrounding the NSA and their information gathering from large internet companies like Google, maybe it’s time they realized that they need to cover more than just the .04% that Google says it has indexed in 2010. A Bloomberg report suggests that terrorists aren’t using Google, Skype, Facebook or any major cell phone network to carry out it’s communications with other terrorists, but in fact using the “deep web” where Google is not indexing and they can fly well under a very limited radar it seems. Makes sense right?
So why are the NSA using these methods to monitor for terrorist chatter? That’s a very good question that I hope someone in Washington starts asking. Because covering .04% of the internet isn’t going to make me sleep better at night.
