I have been waiting for the story that the NSA can turn on cell phone 
microphones and listen to conversations. If the FBI has the ability to do it, 
no doubt the NSA does also. This is like in the “old days” what was called an 
Infinity Transmitter. The Soviet now the Russian Embassy was built on the 
highest elevation in Washington, DC and still has a very impressive antenna 
array on the roof. None of the Snowden revelations should really be a shock to 
anyone, all this has been going on for decades. Echelon was the worst kept 
secret in the world....

Yes, there is finally coverage of the physical architecture of
spying not just the "digital-architecture" of slides, texts 
and hyperbole. 

Duncan Campbell has reported on this physical architecture
of hardware and facilities for decades and has advised 
several of the journalists covering the NSA releases who 
lack his experience and technical knowledge. Jacob
Appelbaum confirms, others have not yet done so, and may
be incapable of admitting limited knowledge after building
careers of knowledgeability, yes, this is about cryptology
and anonymity.

PKC and anonymizers have become a celebrity drugs.

Moreover, the valorization of comsec coding over the
physical architecture has misled both the coders and
their public about the weaknesses of comsec, a gaping
hole through which national spies have driven large
trucks to gather and transport mountains of data while
the cyber-guards gaze at online security programs,
engoring large fees for 24x7 protection, search and
destroy, Stuxnet, virii, hacks, 0-days, terrifying

Keep in mind this which has received almost no
attention now or in the past:

What is online and on the roof of embassies is not 
the source of most spying, that is a ruse.

Every building has a unique identification (UID) based
on its comprehensive materiality of building materials,
mechanical and electrical systems, shape, spaces,
usage, population, devices used by inhabitants (coming
and going and resting), rate of deterioration, repairs, 
renovations. This in addition to official records in
a slew of regulating agencies, contracts for services,
networks, bugs, taps, implants, human spies, automation,
fautly security systems.

In effect, every building is a transceiver of its metadata
and its contents without need for the ruse of local 
penetration. Just an ocean-going vessel, aircraft or 
satellite. Virtually nothing is being done to prevent 
this self-disclosing transceiving. Tempest protection
is insignificant, and SCIFs are ridiculous.

It is not clear if Snowden knows this or has been deluded
by the blinding conceit of cyber war and as a consequence
does not know what comsec delusion he is sincerely 
promulgating to the great pleasure of those who know
exactly how to help him succeed by protesting vigorously.

Back to why Merkel, Obama and other leaders are dancing 
in a global delusion of what they do not know, pretending
outrage so superficial it suggests they really can't believe
they are stooges. As do we.

  What's behind the " boxes " uniformity mirror placed on the roofs of the U.S. 
embassies in major cities around the world and building additions seem " 
natural ." It seems to be hiding the most sophisticated listening facilities .

  Researcher Ronen Solomon discovered the testing facilities identical pictures 
of the roofs of the U.S. embassies in Beijing , Dubai, Berlin , Moscow , Madrid 
and Tel Aviv. , After comprehensive research published in the German weekly " 
Der Spiegel " , following revelations about the eavesdropping carried out by 
the Americans to the top German leadership . according to " citrus Spiegel " , 
on the roof of the embassy in Berlin built blocks that appear as part of the 
structure , but in fact it is made ​​of the facilities 'soft' gray or 
white. material that does not block the absorption from the listening 
facilities are behind him.

  U.S. listening devices '' on the roofs of embassies in the world

  After the discovery Der Spiegel " revealed for the first time , based on the 
findings of Solomon , that identical facilities on the roofs of embassies are 
many other cities , including Tel Aviv. In all cases it seemed as if it were 
part of the building , but we notice that H"kobiot " are , in fact, building 
additions . If the findings of the " Citrus Spiegel " right , the savers of 
listening to the American intelligence agency scattered throughout the world.

  Tel Aviv is no exception : in addition L"kobiot " is also found on the roof 
of the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv , like other major cities , Tel Aviv there are 
other antennas that are hidden , probably because it's not an intelligence 
listening equipment .

  Israeli security officials say they are not surprised by exposing 
eavesdropping in Germany and that they are aware of the American listening 
mechanism being not only from the roofs of embassies , but also through 
satellite listening equipment and other means . The assumption in Israel is the 
U.S. listening to all the conversations that take place in the Middle East as 
well as Europe , especially if they are not encrypted .

  U.S. wiretapping saga continues world countries , and today the U.S. 
ambassador was invited to Spain to talk with accusations that the U.S. had 
listened to more than 60 million phone calls to Spain during the month. 
Ambassador called to talk to the Spanish Minister for European Affairs , Inigo 
Mendez de Vigo , and the meeting between the two lasted 40 minutes . Madrid at 
the end of the conversation released a message saying : " Spain to the United 
States emphasized the importance of maintaining a climate of confidence in 
bilateral relations , and the importance of awareness extent of the actions , 
if it turns out that they actually took place , are unacceptable between 
countries that partnership and friendship ."

  As in the case of Germany and France , published information originally one 
of the local newspapers , " El Mundo " , and its origin is a document provided 
to the leak , a U.S. National Security Agency , former Edward Snowden .
