Posted by on January 31, 2014 in Spying and Surveillance with 0 Comments

RT: The Canadian version of the National Security Agency used information from airport Internet hotspots to track the wireless devices of thousands of airline passengers for days after they left the airport, according to the latest leaks by former government contractor Edward Snowden. The Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) was able to track travelers who logged on to airport Wi-Fi for a week or more as the unwitting passengers, together with their wireless devices, visited other Wi-Fi hot spots in locations across Canada, and across the border at American airports. Back in the US, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced Thursday that Vice Adm. Michael Rogers will be nominated as the commander of US Cyber Command and the NSA's new director and civilian Richard Ledgett to be the NSA deputy director. RT's Perianne Boring takes a look at the latest spy agency revelations.
