I don't know how many of you guys have seen this before, but this is the first time I'm seeing this. This is from MAR2013 DNR= Dialed Number Recognition DNI=Digital Network Intelligence https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boundless_Informant Here's the heat map 1. Apparently India is one of the most surveilled nations right after Iran, pak and jordan. Maybe because of india's large population? But still india is more surveilled than china and also arch enemy (of US) russia. As a matter of fact russia is among the least surveilled nation. Are russians doing something to actively protect their general public signals data??? 2. Apparently Nato allies in Eastern Europe need more surveillance than eveel russia. Strange. Probably to prevent pro-russian thought in these countries. This is very interesting, around the periphery of russia is more surveillance than in russia itself. Prometheism in action?? @pmaitra 3. Americans are also among the most surveilled by NSA I'm guessing this is just a limited aspect of NSA surveillance story.
