Project Hemisphere, a secretive program developed by AT&T, searches trillions of call records in order to analyze cell phone data to spy on the activity of private individuals in order to identify who they are speaking with and why, as well as GPS tracking on the location of both individuals and to transmit this information to the Department of Justice (DOJ).
In 2013, Project Hemisphere was shown in a Powerpoint presentation produced by the drug Enforcement Administration. The New York Time reported this as a partnership between AT&T and the DOJ, primarily deployed for drug-enforcement task-forces.
AT&T specifically developed and marketed this product for use by the DOJ, who would promise hundreds of millions in funds on behalf of taxpayers, using their own money to spy on their every move. This is an invasion of privacy without a warrant. This is tyranny by proxy, working through corporations.
AT&T promises law enforcement that it will not disclose Project Hemisphere’s involvement in active investigations that are made public.
While it should not be surprising that your cell phone company is working with bureaucrats to collect incriminating evidence on us, you may be surprised to find how many people carelessly use their cell phone as if the information being transmitted through the device will be kept private.
News flash! It’s never been private. They have always wanted to use your information as a product to sell. Your data is their product, and you are paying them to take it from you.
