Whenever you think you are being paranoid, you are not being paranoid ENOUGH

Government Using NSA to Change Amount in Bank Accounts, Warns Panel

A White House review panel report into the activities of the NSA suggested that the government was using the spy agency to launch cyber attacks against financial institutions and change the amounts held in bank accounts.
Page 221 of the panel’s report states;
(1) Governments should not use surveillance to steal industry secrets to advantage their domestic industry;
(2) Governments should not use their offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts or otherwise manipulate the financial systems.
“Top financial experts say that the NSA and other intelligence agencies are using information gained from spying to profit from this inside information. And the NSA wants to ramp up its spying on Wall Street … to “protect” it. “Whose money, exactly, is the NSA “protecting” … and how are they protecting it?” asks Washington’s Blog, “What about the money of people that the U.S. government considers undesirables?”
The government’s ability to use the NSA to directly amend bank accounts increases the risk of Americans being subjected to a Cyprus-style “bail-in” where a tax on savings deposits is directly levied in the name of austerity.
Earlier this year, Chase Bank customers attempted to withdraw their cash from ATMs only to be shocked at seeing their balance reduced to zero by a mystery system “glitch”.
Now this is from Infowars, BUT, the report quotes are the govts own report.
I usually feel Infowars IS too paranoid, but with the news about Target being compromised by actions INSIDE their point of sale card readers and AT LEAST 45.7 million cards being exposed … you have to wonder if some NSA rogue, … well, if you’ve seen Officespace, you know where this goes.

Hmm. I want to see more of that report.

The sad thing is, it would not surprise me at all.
