Here We Go: Biden Administration May Increase Social Media Surveillance Because of ‘Leak’

Never let a crisis go to waste!

That’s how the government tramples over your inalienable rights.

Whether you believe the official narrative of the Pentagon leaker or not, the Biden administration will use this ‘crisis’ to invade the privacy of Americans.


After reports of the 'leak,' the White House reportedly may expand how they monitor social media sites and chatrooms.

U.S. intelligence agencies supposedly couldn't spot classified documents circulating online for weeks and want to change their 'intelligence-gathering process.'

It's all an excuse to spy on Americans in the name of 'national security.'

From NBC News:

The administration is now looking at expanding the universe of online sites that intelligence agencies and law enforcement authorities track, the official said.

The secret Pentagon documents appeared in an obscure part of the internet focused on gaming, and some former intelligence officials said it was understandable that U.S. authorities did not spot the disclosure.

The U.S. government may not have been looking there, but cybersecurity experts have long known that Discord has been used by criminals and hackers to spread malware and stealthily transfer stolen information.

“The Discord domain helps attackers disguise the exfiltration of data by making it look like any other traffic coming across the network,” said a 2021 report by Cisco’s Talos cybersecurity team.

The intelligence community is now grappling with how it can scrub platforms like Discord in search of relevant material to avoid a similar leak in the future, said the congressional official.

The disclosure also has raised fresh questions about how sensitive intelligence information is handled inside the government, and whether the pool of people allowed to access it needs to be scaled back.

One theory floating around is this was a 'controlled leak.'

Former CIA Officer Larry Johnson called it a "disinformation campaign" and it's a "cover story that's been manufactured."
