Frightning InfoGraphic from the ACLU Demostrates the True Extent of the NSA's illegal Spy Programs


The visualization above demonstrates the staggering scope of just what the government is doing. The ACLU learned this summer that when a NSA analyst wants to search through the phone records of a suspect, they also search through the records of anyone "three hops" away from that suspect. If three sounds like a small number to you, consider what that means if each of those "hops" has just 40 contacts. The size of the government's dragnet suddenly becomes clearer and considerably more frightening.
