The NSA Have Their Eyes on Wall Street

Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes ""You have to have the rules set up so you can defend Wall Street," Alexander said at a public event in DC last night, Foreign Policy reported. He of course didn’t go into detail about what those “rules” would be, but the gist is that the agency would start monitoring real-time online communications and collect data from big banks and financial institutions.

While discussing surveillance at an interagency meeting this summer, Alexander said: “I can’t defend the country until I’m into all the networks,” officials told the New York Times."
