New Zealand's in an uproar because, despite official assurances to the contrary, their GCSB has been working with our NSA to launch a massive domestic spying operation there.
“The GCSB, whose operations he is responsible for, is directly involved in the untargeted, bulk interception and algorithmic analysis of private communications sent via internet, satellite, radio, and phone networks.”
It appears that they're simply collecting boatloads of metadata and plugging those into the NSA's XKEYSCORE analytic routine, and they haven't quite yet got around to the next phase, which has recently been deployed by our FBI: a large-scale facial recognition system similar to that seen in the television series "Person of Interest". Still, New Zealanders seem a bit taken aback.
As for us, no worries: the FBI's new system can presently handle only 52 million images.
