The NSA's Secret Cops, Known as "Q Group," are Hunting Down Edward Snowden

The people, tasked with hunting down Edward Snowden, work for the Associate Directorate for Security and Counterintelligence, reports The Daily Beast. The directorate is sometimes known as “the Q Group."

The security and counterintelligence directorate serves as the NSA’s internal police force. It has the authority to interview an NSA contractor or employee’s known associates, and even to activate a digital dragnet capable of finding out where a target travels, what the target has purchased, and the target’s online activity,reports DB.

Bottom line: The data collection that Snowden leaked about is now being used to track him.


  1. Hummm, Q Group.

    OK, I'll bite, ahhh, Quackery? No, Quandary? No, that's not it. How about:
    Queer - I think I like that the best - a bunch of government goons called the "Queer Group". Has a sort of ring to it don't you think?

  2. This "Q group" sounds oddly familiar, in their methods of tracking, as the task force in the film 'Enemy of the State'. It's times like these that make you wonder if life imitates art.

  3. but it took ten years to find bin laden who was living in HIS FUCKING HOUSE!

  4. Mind you, they can only really track him if he using credit cards, a cell phone and the like.

  5. Not to mention, as long as he stays in Hong Kong, the MSS is certain to locate him first and keep him under surveillance. Any US snatch and grab would be extremely risky, indeed almost a suicide mission, and such a failure would be worse than the Carter administration's failed rescue attempt in Iran or even if the Bin Laden Raid had failed, this would a snatch-and-grab on Chinese territory.
