U.S. Helping Iranians With Surveillance Circumnavigation Technologies

By, Chris Rossini

There's never a shortage of irony when it comes to the U.S. government.

We know that while Americans get their genitals grabbed (or a shot of radiation) at the airport to protect us from Al Qaeda, the U.S. government gives weapons to members of Al Qaeda over in Syria, because those are the good ones that want to take down Assad.

As if that's not enough...

Today, while Americans are (amazingly) making a big deal that the NSA is spying on everyone, Obama comes out and fervently defends the practice. You see NSA spying on you is the good kind.

The "bad" surveillance happens over in Iran.

So what else for the U.S. government to do than supply Iranian citizens with surveillance circumvention technologies!

Bloomberg reports:
“The U.S. State Department is helping develop a number of general-use surveillance circumvention technologies,” Sascha Meinrath, founder of the Commotion Wireless Project, a non-profit group trying to build such devices, said in an email.“
The irony is so thick, you can barely see!

Our every digital move is being watched in the U.S. and the circumnavigation technologies are heading to Iran! Courtesy of the U.S. government!

The excuse is, of course, Iran’s tightly-controlled June 14th presidential election.

To which we Americans say: Remember when Ron Paul ran for President?
