The Shadow Factory: The NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America

The Shadow Factory reconstructs how the NSA missed a chance to thwart the 9/11 hijackers and details how this mistake has led to a heightening of domestic surveillance. In disturbing detail, Bamford describes exactly how every American’s data is being mined and what is being done with it.

Taxi Scam!!!

Taxi Scam!!!

Taxi Scam: Well folks… the “professional tourist” got scammed on arrival in Beijing!!!! My excuse is that I was tired and not paying attention after 21 hours of traveling from Toronto.

On Monday afternoon, as I left the Beijing Capital Airport arrivals area after clearing customs, a man approached me and asked me in English if I needed a taxi… I said yes. He asked me to come with him and then we walked out the main doors and past rows of waiting taxis… I was a little suspicious and asked him if it was a metered taxi… he insisted it was. He walked me over to the parking garage, took out his mobile [cell phone] and said he would call “one of his taxis”. He showed me an official looking laminated card and said he was “an agent” for the taxis… the card said the rate to downtown hotels was Y400 [today from Hotel to the airport I paid Y140 in total].

When the “taxi” pulled up, driven by another guy who seemed to speak little English, there was no sign on the top and no logo or anything else to show it was a Taxi. I hesitated and the guy opened the glove compartment and showed me the meter saying "meter taxi... meter taxi" so I got in. The “agent” guy rode in the front passenger seat and did most of the talking, while the other guy drove and said very little.

Once we got to Tiananmen Square which is a few blocks from the hotel… the “agent” asked me for the money so I handed over Y400 which was all of the Chinese cash I had on me at the time. Then he insisted he needed another Y100 to cover “road taxes” meaning the toll he had paid on the airport expressway [I think it is Y10 or Y20] and for his “expenses”.

By this time, my suspicions, which had been in a coma, finally came alive and I began thinking how I might salvage something out of this situation. I took out my camera and started doing the tourist thing snapping pictures… and when we got to the hotel, I snapped the one above which shows the “taxi” with the guy who was driving reaching to open the trunk to get out my bag.

The “agent” insisted he needed the extra Y100 and I tried to explain that was all of the Chinese cash I had on me at the time and that I would change money in the hotel. Mr. “agent” took my bag out of the trunk of the “taxi” and refused to relinquish it until we went into the hotel. The hotel did not offer any foreign exchange so I simply gave the “agent” $20 US$ - the smallest bill I had - just to get out of the situation.. and into bed to sleep off the jet lag.

Scam Warning....

Scam Warning....

1. I noticed a charge on my bank account from a company that I've never heard of. The charge was only $1.00 but it concerned me that they were charging me anything at all.

2. The charge was from federalmerchant.com so I went to their website and called the support number to ask what's up with the $1 charge.
The phone was answered by a computer that said "wait" and then the line went quiet. I waited a few seconds and hung up.

3. A few minutes later a charge for $39.19 showed up on my bank account for the support call that I just made.

What a f^%#ing pain the backside. I've canceled my check card and now I have to deal with filing chargeback claims and getting a new bank card.

I'm pretty damn savvy about these kinds of scams .... but this one got me.

Body of Secrets: Anatomy of the Ultra-Secret National Security Agency

The National Security Agency is the world’s most powerful, most far-reaching espionage. Now with a new afterword describing the security lapses that preceded the attacks of September 11, 2001, Body of Secrets takes us to the inner sanctum of America’s spy world. In the follow-up to his bestselling Puzzle Palace, James Banford reveals the NSA’s hidden role in the most volatile world events of the past, and its desperate scramble to meet the frightening challenges of today and tomorrow.

Here is a scrupulously documented account–much of which is based on unprecedented access to previously undisclosed documents–of the agency’s tireless hunt for intelligence on enemies and allies alike. Body of secrets is a riveting analysis of this most clandestine of agencies, a major work of history and investigative journalism.

Everybody knows about the CIA--the cloak-and-dagger branch of the U.S. government. Many fewer are familiar with the National Security Agency, even though it has been more important to American espionage in recent years than its better-known counterpart. The NSA is responsible for much of the intelligence gathering done via technology such as satellites and the Internet. Its home office in Maryland "contains what is probably the largest body of secrets ever created."
Little was known about the agency's confidential culture until veteran journalist James Bamford blew the lid off in 1982 with his bestseller The Puzzle Palace. Still, much remained in the shadows. In Body of Secrets, Bamford throws much more light on his subject--and he reveals loads of shocking information. The story of the U-2 crisis in 1960 is well known, including President Eisenhower's decision to tell a fib to the public in order to protect a national-security secret. Bamford takes the story a disturbing step forward, showing how Eisenhower "went so far as to order his Cabinet officers to hide his involvement in the scandal even while under oath. At least one Cabinet member directly lied to the committee, a fact known to Eisenhower." Even more worrisome is another revelation, from the Kennedy years: "The Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government. In the name of anticommunism, they proposed launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba."
Body of Secrets is an incredible piece of journalism, and it paints a deeply troubling portrait of an agency about which the public knows next to nothing. Fans of The Sword and the Shield will want to read it, as will anybody who is intrigued by conspiracies and real-life spy stories. --John J. Miller
