Spy Agencies Work On Psychologically Profiling Everyone

Spies Want To Predict Everyone’s Thoughts and Actions

Newly-released documents from Edward Snowden show that the NSA and other spy agencies are tracking people’s psychological and lifestyle traits such as sexual preference, extroversion-versus-introversion, and whether people are leaders or followers.  See this and this.

For example, the following are slides leaked by Snowden from Britain’s spy service regarding profiling people psychologically:

IC Off the Record reports on future spying techniques being developed by the U.S. Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity:

In 2006, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) was created to invest in high-risk, high-payoff classified programs uniquely designed to provide research and technical capabilities for the Intelligence Community. IARPA-funded researchers are currently studying novel ways of processing and analyzing the explosive growth of domestic data. ***

  • The Knowledge Discovery and Dissemination (KDD) program will develop advanced analytic algorithms that can effectively draw inferences across multiple databases to allow the Intelligence Community to create virtual fusion centers enabling analysts to produce actionable intelligence.
  • The Socio-cultural Content in Language (SCIL) Program will develop novel algorithms, techniques and technologies to uncover the social actions and characteristics of members of a group (ie; within discussion forums, online comment sections, social media, etc.) by examining the language used in relation to acceptable social and cultural norms.
  • The Reynard Program starts from the premise that “real world” characteristics are reflected in “virtual world” behavior. The program seeks to identify behavioral indicators in online virtual worlds and “massively multiplayer online games” that are related to the real world characteristics of the users. Attributes of interest include gender, age, economic status, educational level, occupation, ideology or “world view”, and physical geographic location.

Indeed, the NSA  is working on building a “pre-crime” computer system that uses artificial intelligence and massive amounts of data to try to predict how every thinks and what everyone is likely to do.

    AMERICA’S COMMUNIST LEADER

    Islamic-Raised, Barack Hussein Obama (a.k.a. Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. Soebarkah, a.k.a. Harrison Bounel) Perfectly Fits Former FBI Head, J. Edgar Hoover’s Definiton of a Communist. He’s a Teleprompter-Puppeted, Marxist-Leninist, Rabble-Rousing Narcissist. Americans are His Enemy. See the Full Scoop on Commie Obama.

    Sounds like a bunch of nonsense psychobabble to me and this is coming from someone with a background in psych.

  • Dum Deedum

    Theres a good army meme relating to this, something along the lines of how German and Russian Commanders cannot seem to grasp the American Tactics. While The American Says “If we dont know what the hell we’re doing, hows the enemy going too”?

    My ex husband has been at the NSA for 40 years, lying thru his teeth. I confronted the NSA on exactly how he ever got a security clearance. They profiled me as crazy. YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT NSA. I’M ONE CRAZY EX-WIFE. (they’re still running)

    I thoroughly scrutinized the photo of the cat and dog. The dog is curled up in a fetal position because it has diabetes related circulation problems and is cold. The cat is sprawled out because it is a gay ” top” that struck out at the bar. Either that or it has a degenerated L-5 disc that hurts when he bends his back the other way and may be disabled. . Sometimes I sleep sprawled out and sometimes I’m in a fetal position. I guess I’m just suffering from bi polar disorder.

    Hey nsa, profile this !!!

    If you have been on Eharmony or dating websites that build a profile on you – the questions seem directly out of a DHS interrogation manual – I’ve been asked several times on my views on guns and individual rights. “Do I have a gun in the home?” one question asked. “Should states decide gun control measures?” asked another. WTF?
    Is the government using these websites to create hidden profiles of people? Don’t give me “we are looking for terrorists” herring. Muhammad Atta didn’t spend time on Eharmony looking for a wife before doing what he (allegedly) did.
    How many millions did DHS give you, Dr. Neil Warren? Or should you name be “Kneel” Warren?

      More and more I get the feeling that most of the web is simply one big research tool for the powers that be.

    • Social Nexus

      You’re damn right they are. Only a fool would enter sensitive personal information into such a site.

  • Dee Phillips

    The goal here is universal blackmail, making it possible to nip rebellion in the bud. Anyone who looks at political revolution historically knows they almost always begin with a segment of the elite that is being forced to eat dog dirt during a crisis period (the bourgeois in ancien regime France) If the controlling factions can isolate and crush these elements, they can maintain indefinite control. Until the next KT event anyway. Welcome to the Orwellian Anthill.

      Hmmm… excellent points. Proudly Bourgeois!

    • Lord Koos

      In a modern, all-encompassing version of Hoover’s FBI, the NSA has dirt on everybody. Which is why I believe that any attempts by congress to reign in that agency will fail.

    Well, that photo of the pets tells it all. Cats are terrorists at heart – try forgetting their normal feeding time. First they will love-up on you, then loudly mew, after that they start tearing up the house.
    Dogs are such good citizens. They watch CNN, believe the official 9/11 narrative, and can be subdued with just a newspaper – like the New York Times (rolled up, of course). Dogs never complain when forced through airport security theater and submissive to the nearest Alpha Male (the guy in the TSA blue shirt and gloves).

    USA has always used spying to select people from populations whose execution or torture or disappearance would have the most demoralizing effect on the rest of the population so it could be more easily crushed and held down:

    They are refining their methods.

    IF the scum in the NSA,knew what was coming for them,they’d move to another planet,BUT thank GOD they don’t, he blinded them and they won’t even see it coming……………….

  • Sophos Marin

    I dont think that the US government, NSA, military etc are plotting against the american people , they are trying to protect them (they are often part of the victims)…but this does not mean that plots dont occur….911 etc organised by some powerfull people outside the country and inside the country…they have their own political, ideological… agenda…sometimes they succeed….we can only hope that the system is still working and find them one day….
