IS THE NSA CHANGING BANK ACCOUNTS?
[Editor’s Note: The following post is by TDV contributor, Wendy McElroy]
Has the National Security Administration (NSA) been changing the amounts held in the financial accounts of people it targets?
The question would seem absurd if it were not for a 308-page report on the NSA that was released on December 12 by an Official White House Panel. Recommendation 31, “Institutional Measures for Cyberspace,” on page 37 and repeated on page 221 reads:
(1) Governments should not use surveillance to steal industry secrets to advantage their domestic industry;
(2) Governments should not use their offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts or otherwise manipulate the financial systems.
