    ECHELON :

    The question to me of course is, if they had all of this surveillance in place even before 9/11, how can they pretend that they were blindsided?


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECHELON

    "The ECHELON program was created in the late 1960s to monitor the military and diplomatic communications of the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc allies during the Cold War, and was formally established in 1971.[5][6]
    By the end of the 20th century, the system referred to as "ECHELON" had allegedly evolved beyond its military and diplomatic origins, to also become "…a global system for the interception of private and commercial communications."

    United States Patent 5,937,422
    Nelson , et al. August 10, 1999

    Automatically generating a topic description for text and searching and sorting text by topic using the same
    Abstract A method of automatically generating a topical description of text by receiving the text containing input words; stemming each input word to its root form; assigning a user-definable part-of-speech score to each input word; assigning a language salience score to each input word; assigning an input-word score to each input word; creating a tree structure under each input word, where each tree structure contains the definition of the corresponding input word; assigning a definition-word score to each definition word; collapsing each tree structure to a corresponding tree-word list; assigning a tree-word-list score to each entry in each tree-word list; combining the tree-word lists into a final word list; assigning each word in the final word list a final-word-list score; and choosing the top N scoring words in the final word list as the topic description of the input text. Document searching and sorting may be accomplished by performing the method described above on each document in a database and then comparing the similarity of the resulting topical descriptions.

      NAVY WIRE SERVICE (NWS) - November 1, 1999 NWS01nov-7.
      New Navy-supported machine recognizes spoken words better than humans by Loretta DeSio,
      Office of Naval Research Public Affairs WASHINGTON (NWS) -- The U.S. Navy is supporting
      new speech recognition research for its potential benefits to Navy sonar. Biomedical engineers
      at the University of Southern California have created the world's first machine system that can
      recognize spoken words better than humanscan. In benchmark testing, USC's speech recognition system
      bested all existing computer systems and outperformed the keenest human ears. The system may eventually
      advance voice control of computers and other machines, help the deaf, aid air traffic controllers and
      others who must understand speech in noisy environments, and instantly produce clean transcripts of
      conversations, with each speaker correctly identified.

        "Ever since legendary British investigative journalist Duncan Campbell told the world in a 1988 magazine article about ECHELON — a massive, automated surveillance dragnet that indiscriminately intercepted phone and Internet data from communications satellites — Western intelligence officials have refused to acknowledge that it existed.
        Despite sporadic continuing press reports, people who complained about the program — which, as Campbell disclosed, automatically searched text-based communications using a dictionary of keywords to flag suspicious content — were routinely dismissed as conspiracy theorists.
        The only real conspiracy, it turns out, was a conspiracy of silence among the governments that benefited from the program."
