Document Shows NSA Tracked Online Porn Searches

WASHINGTON, Nov. 27 (UPI) —
A National Security Agency document released by Edward Snowden shows the agency planned to discredit six Muslims by revealing their porn searches.

The six were identified as “exemplars” of how online intelligence gathering could be used to paint people suspected of being religious radicals as hypocrites, The Huffington Post reported.

The NSA director is described as the “orginator” of the document, which was dated Oct. 3, 2012. The behavior described in the document included accessing online pornography and engaging in sexually explicit online chats with “inexperienced young girls.”

Shawn Turner, an intelligence spokesman, defended the practice.

Jameel Jaffer, deputy legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, said the government clearly defines abuse “narrowly” while scooping up huge amounts of information about almost everyone.
