Facebook eerily similar to DARPA’s surveillance blueprint which predates 9/11
April 9, 2018
The data collection performed by Facebook has striking similarities to DARPA’s Total Information Awareness program that was laid out before 9/11, which Infowars reported on years ago.
For starters, in Dec. 2000 the NSA admitted it was ensnaring Americans’ private data protected under the Fourth Amendment as part of its dragnet surveillance of digital communications.
“…Today’s and tomorrow’s mission will demand a powerful, permanent presence on a global telecommunications network that will host the ‘protected’ [under the Fourth Amendment] communications of Americans as well as targeted communications of adversaries,” the NSA stated in a declassified memo to then-newly-elected President Bush.
The memo, entitled Transition 2001, alluded to both a transition for the NSA as well as the transition into the Bush presidency; the NSA would soon shroud itself with even greater secrecy through a change in its classification policy.
The NSA likely did so knowing it would soon come under scrutiny; not long after the Transition 2001 memo, the U.S. Department of Defense moved towards integrating existing information on American citizens and aliens into a centralized, virtual database, as reported in a Dec. 15, 2002 New York Times article entitled Total Information Awareness:
According to its Web site, which features a Latin slogan that means “knowledge is power,” “Total Information Awareness of transnational threats requires keeping track of individuals and understanding how they fit into models.”

To this end, T.I.A. seeks to develop architectures for integrating existing databases into a “virtual, centralized, grand database.”
