Solving the intelligence innovation and inclusion problem

Estimates vary, but Turkish media reports have suggested that as many as 1,000 Turks have joined ISIS. According to opinion polls, only 70 percent of Turks view ISIS as a terrorist group. In a country of 75 million, the 30 percent who do not share such a view represent an important potential recruiting pool for the jihadist group.
The bigger problem, however, is that the Turkish government has little faith in the United States. This is partially ideological, but also based on experience. After all, the bungled management of post-invasion Iraq does not inspire confidence in Washington’s ability to steward this new effort
Between the hostages IS has captured and the important residual support it commands in Turkey, the jihadist group has managed to significantly restrict Erdogan’s room to maneuver. The natural policy for Turkey now is to sit on the sidelines — but as the fight against ISIS escalates, Turkey could find itself under increasing pressure to be drawn in.
the things that we’ve learnt are no longer enough
To synchronize love to the beat of the show
we could go on as though nothing were wrong
hide from these days
remaining all alone
staying in the same place
just staying out of time
touching synchronicity from a distance
slipping further all the time
To synchronize love to the beat of the show

How the NSA Built Its Own Secret Google

For sale: Systems that can secretly track where cellphone users go around the globe - washingtonpost.com
Makers of surveillance systems are offering governments across the world the ability to track the movements of almost anybody who carries a cellphone, whether they are blocks away or on another continent.
“Any tin-pot dictator with enough money to buy the system could spy on people anywhere in the world,” said Eric King, deputy director of Privacy International, a London-based activist group that warns about the abuse of surveillance technology. “This is a huge problem.”
hackers, sophisticated criminal gangs and nations under sanctions also could use this tracking technology, which operates in a legal gray area.
Companies that make and sell surveillance technology seek to limit public information about their systems’ capabilities and client lists, typically marketing their technology directly to law enforcement and intelligence services through international conferences that are closed to journalists and other members of the public.
