... and the reason is why lies well within the scope of the neocon policy makers of the last couple of decades. I just started reading the book Dirty Wars from Jeremy Scahill - a real eye opener.

spacefight Re:Well, you have mine. (727 comments)

German NSA Committee May Turn To Typewriters To Stop Leaks

spacefight Re:So what? they can be tapped to. (244 comments)

So, how hard do you think it is, to hack into a nearby computer (laptop, cell phone, building automation controller etc) and use that as a next hop to get an audio signal of the typewriter?
