New Readers Start Here: Test every ROGS thesis, and then, get back to me.

As I state repeatedly here at ROGS, I ask you, the reader, to test and retest my many hypotheses. And also- I ask you to note that I am as non-sectarian as I can possibly be when it comes to religions, and bad cultural practices-I repudiate them all with equal ferocity, and I wrote ROGS so that those who are bothered by these lunatics who “work in darkness” have a place to begin studying their “hidden assailants” and other cowards who work under this Democracy subversion scheme.
Here below are some of the many thesis you can test and re-test for scientific certainty:
1)”gang stalking is the actions of corporate spies and counter-intelligence agents who all work in one way or another under the crisis PR narrative of “the War on Terror,” with warrantess surveillance and hidden “watch listing”
2)”cowards who work in government and as private sector rats, abusing official data, stolen from citizens, and passing it around interstate, and internationally to settle scores, wage revenge, blackmail, or destroy open and free election processes and democracy itself”
3)”cults and sects of organized religion that use data entrapment schemes from the NSA to the Five Eyes Nations, to Israel, to stalk and harm dissenters and activists and speakers of First Amendment protected pure speech”
4)”gang stalking is the actions of state unionists, city, state and federal level officials, and low-life state teat suckers such as collections agents, social workers, and prison industrial complex agents who derive their income from the many state industries that are little more than peonage systems”
5) ” gang stalking is connected to online data collection and abuse of persons whose data is collected”
6) “gang stalking uses artificial intelligence to target people online, and the stalking comes offline”
7) “gang stalkers belong to secret or exclusive clubs wh have access to the internet backbone and who do nefarious things from hidden capacities”
I have sprinkled many many more testable hypotheses here at ROGS, and I believe all of them can be replicated, and validated for generations to come.
Just look around ROGS here, and you will begin to understand that gang stalking is darker than the dark web, and deeper than any rabbit hole you ever imagined. Then, learn to use the proper language, separate the genuinely mentally ill schizophrenics and delusionals from those who are targeted because they are dissidents, activists, whistle blowers, journalists, and more.
And, in my peaceful, non-violent approach to the dialectic of gang stalking, I hope that you, the actual targeted person, can find ways to fight back, using words and the many electronic methods I recommend.
As predicted, my email has become an interesting circus of people-AGAIN, and predictably, traceable in many cases to these same I mention above (no offense intended to the actual TI’s I have counseled, or spoken with via email.) I even encountered someone who believes that their time is worth more than my own, which is a provably false presumption.
SO, again, these parts of my many thesis are validated repeatedly, and the researcher of OGS can validate these and similar results. As I have maintained throughout ROGS, my goal is to eradicate the ability of these people and this “program” to harm other individuals.
And, I see every day that it is working-the word is getting out all over the world. But mostly, as the keen reader will note, some very calculated racists and tribalists have managed to make their religious war a problem for all of us, regardless of our race class or gender. And in doing so, we see how the Five Eyes-Israel connection to ‘counter-terrorism’ is actually a massive broadside against the rights of speakers to speak.
Since ROGS will be seen eventually as a “game changer” that challenges the One Percent their hordes of flying monkeys, and their armies of bullies in High Heels who use “high policing” methods off the books to manipulate targeted speakers and targeted citizens- we see how it works in practice, as it is revealed-again-that the Five Eyes and its religious cults and sects, using Israel as a shield to destroy individuals and nations alike, using religious right eugenicists, human rights abusers, and other fanatics who are attempting, and succeeding, in suppressing speech and speakers.
This, more than anything is, and has been the goal of all organized gang stalking since the word first hit the internet, and as we see in the extant “studies” of OGS, the main goal of OGS denialists is exactly that: to silence speakers, or to target and harass them should they refuse to yield the floor to this un-litigated nightmare of the NSA data theft pipeline, its associated assaults on liberty, privacy, and due process; and how it affects us all-and steals our time and opportunities, one abuse of data at a time; one slander campaign, one whisper network at a time, outside of the rule of law.
And, we also see that ROGS isn’t alone in asking the right questions, or challenging corporate and state power as it colludes in these endeavors. But organized gang stalking, properly named, is “counter-inteligence stalking” and it is illegal, unethical, and un-paralleled in its use on citizens of our “free” nations, regardless of race class and gender; because it targets those of us who actually know how to name evil as what evil actually is. See points 1-7 above if you are in doubt.
Meantime, I leave you with more details of how foreign agents who work under a religious-theocratic methodology are influencing/stealing our election processes, our privacy and due processes, and waging hidden wars on speakers; and also, Glenn Greenwald’s latest column, where he names another evil, and the evil that seeks to kill democracy, for all rational people of civilized nations.
So-“what is Israelification?”What is “a suspended Constitution?” And: “How are Democracies destroyed, one targeted speaker at a time?”
Ask Glenn Greenwald, whose courageous journalism brought Edward Snowden into the limelight, and brought he NSA-FiveEyes-Israel blackmail scheme out of its hidey hole. And next time you see the phrase “deleted his web page,” or you observe an internet trll war, or ye another “safe space keepin mind tat these are all attempts to discourage speakers, and the actual beginning of one or another form of stalking that targets individuals as “influencers.”
Then, keep this below, in mind-if you still have one- when this massive trance formation via influence operation is complete:

In September of last year, we noted that Facebook representatives were meeting with the Israeli government to determine which Facebook accounts of Palestinians should be deleted on the ground that they constituted “incitement.” The meetings — called for and presided over by one of the most extremist and authoritarian Israeli officials, pro-settlement Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked — came after Israel threatened Facebook that its failure to voluntarily comply with Israeli deletion orders would result in the enactment of laws requiring Facebook to do so, upon pain of being severely fined or even blocked in the country.
The predictable results of those meetings are now clear and well-documented. Ever since, Facebook has been on a censorship rampage against Palestinian activists who protest the decades-long, illegal Israeli occupation, all directed and determined by Israeli officials. Indeed, Israeli officials have been publicly boasting about how obedient Facebook is when it comes to Israeli censorship orders:
Shortly after news broke earlier this month of the agreement between the Israeli government and Facebook, Israeli Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked said Tel Aviv had submitted 158 requests to the social media giant over the previous four months asking it to remove content it deemed “incitement.” She said Facebook had granted 95 percent of the requests.
She’s right. The submission to Israeli dictates is hard to overstate: As the New York Times put it in December of last year, “Israeli security agencies monitor Facebook and send the company posts they consider incitement. Facebook has responded by removing most of them.”
What makes this censorship particularly consequential is that “96 percent of Palestinians said their primary use of Facebook was for following news.” That means that Israeli officials have virtually unfettered control over a key communications forum of Palestinians.
In the weeks following those Facebook-Israel meetings, reported The Independent, “the activist collective Palestinian Information Center reported that at least 10 of their administrators’ accounts for their Arabic and English Facebook pages — followed by more than 2 million people — have been suspended, seven of them permanently, which they say is a result of new measures put in place in the wake of Facebook’s meeting with Israel.” Last March, Facebook briefly shut down the Facebook page of the political party, Fatah, followed by millions, “because of an old photo posted of former leader Yasser Arafat holding a rifle.”
A 2016 report from the Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms detailed how extensive the Facebook censorship was:
Pages and personal accounts that were filtered and blocked: Palestinian Dialogue Network (PALDF.net) Gaza now, Jerusalem News Network, Shihab agency, Radio Bethlehem 2000, Orient Radio Network, page Mesh Heck, Ramallah news, journalist Huzaifa Jamous from Abu Dis, activist Qassam Bedier, activist Mohammed Ghannam, journalist Kamel Jbeil, administrative accounts for Al Quds Page, administrative accounts Shihab agency, activist Abdel-Qader al-Titi, youth activist Hussein Shajaeih, Ramah Mubarak (account is activated), Ahmed Abdel Aal (account is activated), Mohammad Za’anin (still deleted), Amer Abu Arafa (still deleted), Abdulrahman al-Kahlout (still deleted).
Needless to say, Israelis have virtually free rein to post whatever they want about Palestinians. Calls by Israelis for the killing of Palestinians are commonplace on Facebook, and largely remain undisturbed.

 
As Al Jazeera reported last year, “Inflammatory speech posted in the Hebrew language … has attracted much less attention from the Israeli authorities and Facebook.” One study found that “122,000 users directly called for violence with words like ‘murder,’ ‘kill,’ or ‘burn.’ Arabs were the No. 1 recipients of hateful comments.” Yet there appears to be little effort by Facebook to censor any of that.

 

Lastly, to my dedicated readers, I note that I watched this video below many years ago,in 2011, which was a banner year for gang stalking complaints, according to Google, and the extant literature about gang stalking online. I watched it as strangers occupied the apartment next door to me, strange people on foot and on bicycles, and local morons who drove used Crown Victoria’s that they purchased from state auctions followed me everywhere, and flashed “red dot” lasers through my windows, set up makeshift “sniper nests” outside my apartment, and more-and all of that under the watchful eyes of US agents and agencies.
Then, later, “my” internet history re-appeared on another computer, two cities away, in the form of “desktop folders” that were in .zip files, with arrows on them pointing “offline.” Against my will, and with no recurse to legal channels, or even proper names for what this “thing of theirs” is (who do you call when it is “them” doing these things?), I was drawn and quartered in hidden internet operations, where hidden actors did hidden things.
All of this took place as the Obama Administration waged war on journalists, and prosecuted more “leaks”than any president ever, revealing that fascism is neither left or right, black or white; christian, Catholic or Jewish-that fascism is what we are living under today in the NSA-FiveEyes-Israel data theft scheme. While I was a victim of nefarious government and private sector abuse, others were persecuted and prosecuted to a much higher degree.
Here is former New Yark Times reporter James Risen, who first revealed the illegal NSA spying on America and unconstitutional NSA data theft scheme, describing the political, the bizarre, and sometimes-the freakishly odd events that he endured as a journalist during the “War On Terror.” Risen’s book, “A State of War,“came out in 2006, around the time I was writing a play about a compromised deputy US Attorney General, who had foregone the “rule of law,” and deliberately acquiesced to NSA spying on citizens.
Risen had refused to reveal his sources for seven years, and  faced jail time, and the “investigation” was eventually dropped. The source he was protecting was former CIA agent Jeffrey Sterling who was prosecuted under the archaic Espionage Act because he was alleged to have revealed bizarre CIA plans that were straight out of a comic book, and all of THAT while the NSA was spying on all Americans, and worse, using the data selectively, and punitively in various entrapment/compromise/blackmail operations of varying degrees.
So-what does “Organized Gang Stalking” look like in practice?
The case of Mahmoud Al Mabhouh’s Assassination by Israeli “sayanim.” Also, see this post here for how that affects the Five Eyes Nations of the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand

So, for those who are targeted with these things, take note that your only option is to build evidence, and wage peaceful, non-violent resistance to OGS. Then, when you have yourself pointed in the right direction, with substantial film and photographic evidence, combined with other types of evidence (see the top of this blog for sections that teach you how to collect evidence), bring it to a lawyer, and have that lawyer contact the police.
Because without counter-narrative to organized gang stalking” aka “counter-intelligence stalking, you could end up framed, defamed, slandered, or dead, as “the good guys” look on-because as of now, complaints of gang stalking are being called “crazy” by those who derive income from one or another form of the DVIC, MIC, or PIC industries.
And here at ROGS, I want YOU to learn to fight back, using peaceful, non-violent resistance and dissent, and, knowing you are not alone. Because any other way-they win, whoever your  “they” are, because we know with scientific certainty that “they” are the One Percent and their enablers.

Many center-to-right christians note that “SAYANIM ARE INDISPENSABLE IN FALSE FLAGS AND MOSSAD ASSASSINATIONS” while the Huffington Post calls these foreign agents and their networks of NGO affiliates that work behind the scenes on the internet, and in various social functions in America and elsewhere:

Mossad’s Little Helpers

By Jamal Dajani Not much has been left to the imagination in the assassination of Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in Dubai on January 19. The entire operation has unfolded on closed circuit television cameras in front of millions of viewers across the globe, just like an episode from a reality show.
Pictures of the perpetrators, all 27 of them, have been plastered all over the web. Dubai Police Chief Dhahi Khalfan Tamim has on more than one occasion declared to the media that he was all but 100% certain that the hit on al-Mabhouh had all the markings of the Mossad on it.
He recently said that his men had obtained the DNA of part of the members of the hit squad and vowed to resign from his post if this claim proves to be false.“I challenge Israel to bring the suspects there in order to undergo a DNA test and compare them with the samples we have,” he said in an interview to the UAE-based al-Khaleej newspaper.“If it turns out that the results do not match, I will resign. You can lie about anything, but not about DNA,” he added.
The Bayonet
The assassination of al-Mabhouh has thrown an unwanted spotlight on the workings of Mossad and its specially trained assassination team, known as a kidon, the Hebrew word for bayonet, something that the Israeli government had not bargained for when the approval to conduct such an operation came directly from the top: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Incidentally, it was also during Mr. Netanyahu’s first term as prime minister in 1997 when a kidon unit of the Mossad bungled the attempted assassination of Khalid Mish’al, the current leader of Hamas, in the streets of Amman in Jordan by injecting a mysterious poison into his ear.
The Helpers
The use of forged European passports by Mossad agents entering Dubai to assassinate al-Mabhouh has kicked up a diplomatic storm in recent days. The EU issued a strong condemnation of the stolen IDs, indirectly criticizing Israel. Israeli ambassadors in Britain, Ireland, France, Australia and Germany have been called in to discuss the issue, and Israel’s Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has been given an earful by many of his counterparts.
But were the Israeli dual nationals whose foreign passports were allegedly forged unaware that their identities were stolen by the Mossad? Or were they acting as sayanim, the Hebrew word for helpers, whom the Mossad relies on across the globe to provide shelter, money, and logistical support… in this case identity. A sayan, singular for sayanim, must be 100% Jewish, and in many cases a dual national.
The CIA
Also, why was not a single agent out of the 27 identified to be holders of foreign passports a US passport holder?Israel has a large number of dual-national Jewish-Americans living in the country, many of whom serve in the Israeli military and various government related jobs. Was this deliberate so as not to draw the wrath of the United States? Or was it simply that this operation was coordinated with the CIA?
The Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and numerous foreign press outlets have reported that two men linked to the assassination of al-Mabhouh entered the U.S. on specific dates after the killing. According to the reports, someone using an Irish passport with the name Evan Dennings entered the U.S. on Jan. 21, and someone using a British passport with the name Roy Allan Cannon entered the U.S. on Feb. 14.
Are sayanim in the US? Follow this link to learn more!
Yup.
In case you are wondering, in every totalitarian state, communist country, or religious theocracy, free speech and due process of law are “the enemy” of these types of governments, who will stop at nothing to twist and distort meaning and intentions of speakers.Then-ask yourself, or ask a friend why it is exactly that some organizations that claim to speak for rights, or the Constitution,  are so biased and racist when it comes to interpreting simple things like due process rights?
In case you are wondering who these spokes-persons of the One Percent might be-ask the one of those organizations, as nearly all of them are led by the descendants of Eastern Bloc Bolsheviks who work “in darkness,” and pick easy fights against individuals, while doing NOTHING about the NSA-FiveEyes-Israel data theft and spying pipeline. These mock, malign and pick on “the little people,” in fights that they can easily win, while sitting on millions and billions of dollars in cash to subvert the due process. In case you guessed “superficial crybullies from the One Percent” you would be correct.
Here is an individual, who speaks for due process of law, and the Constitution of Jefferson, and Haym Solomon alike, being mocked, chided, and filleted by a multi-million dollar ‘do nothing” organization whose focus is on distorting it’s own biases and hatred so that we, the people never get a glimpse of their eugenic nature in what can only be called Edward Bernaysian Irony.
Edward Bernays, you might recall, is the guy who led American women into a century of tobacco addiction, much as Mark Zuckerberg, in league with our current government, and “the deep state” are leading our children into brain-deforming dopamine rushes,in what some are calling a propaganda and mind control operation that is “much worse than Hitler.”
“Propaganda is to democracy what violence is to dictatorship. In a democracy you cant get away with controlling people by force so you use propaganda to manufacture an illusory version of consent.”
[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWoorJKA6pg&w=640&h=360]
But today-some people-for some reason-get away with murder, which is often preceded by organized stalking in that begins in a database; in colleges, universities, government institutions; online and offline. These people “whoever They are” are literally abusing targeted individuals because, as the ACLU has noted, they have the ability to “influence” other citizens.
You don’t have to take my word for it-ask the internet if “gang stalking” of targeted individuals by gangs of people who stalk individuals online AND offline, in cowardly ways, and in secret” is real.  Ask Val, the merchant mariner, and part time family electrician. Ask “the internet” if it targets and talks back to people, or otherwise manipulates their minds and choices without informed consent.
Or, ask the 1.5 BILLION dollar crisis PR budget that the fed doles out to “some people” who are “gazillionaires,” for “some reason” more than others; and those who likely forgot where they came from.
Or-ask the “authorities-they will surely be glad to mislead you; or haul you away in a straight jacket like they did to Andy Ostrowski when you speak up abut it; or chase you to Mexico after stalking and conspiring against you like they did-and are doing-to Gavin Seim.

Speaking of "what happens to gang stalking targets?" A story from 2014-16

Speaking of espionage- but really quietly of course, here in public, about mission creep and bleed-over into a dying Constitutional Democracy.

“There not using them that way- they’re using them here…”

Background: Consensual Surveillance is what the DHS, ICE, FBI and even state level agencies call their secret warrantless cellphone surveillance. They have been monitoring and manipulating the communications of Americans via Cessna airplanes using technology called Stingrays and Hailstorm here in America since before 2006.
My first encounter with this form of warrantless surveillance by air was in 2011 or so when a little yellow Cessna airplane followed me everywhere, for hours, across a mid-western city.  Then, I pulled my phones battery for the first time ever- and the plane disappeared.
————————————————————————
Low and Slow is the way to go when monitoring American’s speech : off-the-radar, “push-broom” hyper spectral imaging is more than picking up chatter.
The Beechcraft King Air turbo-prop is a beautiful bird. And it’s used to fly domestic surveillance missions in the U.S., and scoop up data about Americans
So- there’s this guy who worked on the electronic navigation and stability systems that are in MRAPs, the spectral imaging and photographic capabilities of FBI spy planes that currently monitor the phones of many Americans without a warrant or even probable cause; and the heavier military grade spectral and thermal imaging systems of CIA, DEA, and USAF surveillance aircraft. He particularly was fond of his work on the Beechcraft King Air line. How could those planes NOT be an engineers favorite- the name alone is so retro and air-crafty.

He said “These things can look down through the roof of your house, and draw a multi-tiered 3D heat map and watch you move through your house in real time.” He really thought highly of those Beechcraft Surveillance planes.

B100
I met him at a Japanese restaurant in November of 2014, a tonkatsu ramen and saki place in a strip mall next to a hotel where he was a regular; at least, as much of a regular as a guy who moves around a lot,  working for military contractors and weapons manufacturers.
At the time, I was surprised that he was telling me, a virtual stranger, about domestic surveillance in the U.S. done TO Americans by intelligence agencies, BY the #goodguys at every level. I always thought the #badguys and the #otherguys did that stuff in their countries, to their peoples. Turns out some of those guys are training on those same planes as I write.
And, I would love to tell you more, but it might be illegal to do so, cuz, national security and stuff-you know: the Chinese or the North Koreans- maybe the Syrians or ISIS!! might get a leg up,catch us with our pants down, and tap all our phones, or follow us around with airplanes to get at all of our phone data and stuff.
Also, because we know that main stream journalists are so reputable and all, after President Obama authorized the dispensing of propaganda on the American public in 2011. A main stream media so reputable that they forgot to question the surveillance state as it was being built above my head. There are plainly too many military industrial surveillance state ‘official sources’ to wine and dine for stories- real inside scoops about cute puppies, or a stadium or something. Busy busy busy hungry hungry hungry officials: the #goodguys busy and hungry together.

Anyways, these MRAPs were designed for military use,in theaters of war, but somehow ended up parked next to your local donut shops all across America.

Well: once upon a time on a phone long since stolen, I was making a case in the public’s interest about how airplanes are being used domestically to spy on Americans phone calls, and possibly looking through our roofs. I used Gmail and kept notes and contact info there. And, that story literally got scooped out of my Gmail account, then somehow hit the newspapers- in Minnesota.

And this guy- I’ll call him Jack- was a mess. He was hammered- absolutely shitfaced; he was all tore up about missing his aged mother- how he wanted a ghostwriter to tell her story to the world.
“Let me tell you- there are good mothers and then there was her: my mother was the best mother ever- anyone could see it. She was like a saint…” and so he went on about his mother.
And he was weeping. Weeping about how his inventions were being mis-used. You see, he works for many of the weapons dealers and arms suppliers that build the bombs and the drones and the MRAPs there in front of your house. He is a military industrial complex engineer.
Here is a project he worked on:
https://www.beechcraft.com/special_missions/aerial_survey.aspx
And this doozy which he made note of:
https://www.beechcraft.com/special_missions/surveillance.aspx
His biggest problem seemed to be that he felt that he had no say in the fact that these tools were being used to target civilians.
“I never gave my consent…they never told me they would be used this way…” and so on. He was horrified when he found out that the multiple agencies were using his toys and tools to target practice on American citizens, here, in America. That the FBI et al were training their pilots and their resources using Americans for practice, without warrants.
There’s this point between men where boundaries become demilitarized- where we drop our guard, and empathize: where we try to comfort another man, which is always awkward. And, where one wonders if the weirdness might be a whole ‘nother level of weird.
Well, the guy stumbled towards me in his stupor, head hanging in his hands- and he was literally slobbering as he gasped one of those horrid sort of drunk guy gasps that precedes horrible crying,  and then sprang at me and was in my arms, where he found a slobbery nook on my shoulder to weep into.
Awkward indeed- blurring boundaries, blurring stories, one minute on about his mother the next, talking about how the technology he designed for  Beechcraft could “look through your ceiling and create a 3D image model” of you as you take a shit in the privacy of your own home. ( Update: here is a story that ran in Popular Science on April 6, 2016, shortly before I wrote this story herein, and shortly after I spoke with a confidential informant: http://www.popsci.com/fbi-planes-used-augmented-reality-to-watch-america)
I said ” Well, these are the kind of tools we need in a war.” He gasped a cry and said “There not using them that way- they’re using them here…” and more weeping.
I couldn’t help but feel my lifelong revulsion to men, and weeping men, but especially- weeping men slobbering snot on my shirt.
But, in some conversations, I guess I overlook my own biases and listen for the story that really matters. And he seemed nice enough, provided an interesting story full of details.
In this case, it was that one detail- that military grade photo-thermal imaging was being used on American citizens.
That seemed important.
Within a day, I bumped into anther guy in the hallway carrying a Stingray sized briefcase- one of those metal kind that you see in the movies. And, the next night, a long black Suburban with no license plates of any kind parked under my motel window. Within three months, the phone where I kept my research and notes about this incident disappeared from my car.
And- the story about how the FBI is using these technologies broke almost immediately after my ability to report it had been erased. This has been the nature of my journalism for over a decade and counting; and why I provide these stories to others now- because control of my personal narrative begins and ends with this strange idea of my personal ‘right to privacy- my right to be left alone.’
But also, it coexists along with the public’s right to know.

Organized gang stalking and whistle blowers: William Binney, decorated intelligence officer gets his door kicked in to shut him up.

When Business insider online agrees with me that organized gang stalking, aka harassment of whistle blowers and journalists; petty criminals and FBI informants alike, probably, you should open your ears to those who claim that something unconstitutional and severely debilitating is happening in America towns and cities. Sure- if you have nothing to hide, then you probably also have nothing to say worth hearing.
But William Binney tried to save even you from a waste of four billion dollars. And because you are paying a ton of money for these things to happen to others whose only goal was to keep America strong, and Constitutionally protected, you might find moment to lend your voice for a change.
From Business Insider:

Latest Glenn Greenwald Scoop Vindicates One Of The Original NSA Whistleblowers

William Binney William Binney “The Program” by Laura Poitras via The New York Times
William Binney — one of the best mathematicians and code breakers in National Security Agency (NSA) history — worked for America’s premier covert intelligence gathering organization for 32 years before resigning in late 2001 because he “could not stay after the NSA began purposefully violating the Constitution.”
Binney claims that the NSA took one of the programs he built, known as ThinThread, and started using the program and members of his team to spy on virtually every U.S. citizen under the code-name Stellar Wind.
Thanks to NSA whistleblower/leaker Edward Snowden, documents detailing the top-secret surveillance program have now been published for the first time.
And they corroborate what Binney has said for years.
From Glenn Greenwald and Spencer Ackerman of The Guardian:
The collection of email metadata on Americans began in late 2001, under a top-secret NSA program started shortly after 9/11, according to the documents. Known as Stellar Wind, the program initially did not rely on the authority of any court – and initially restricted the NSA from analyzing records of emails between communicants wholly inside the US.
