Toward the identity of “Country X” in MYSTIC – Cryptome
Today Glenn Greenwald released a bombshell, a story more significant than anything in is book, and probably in the top 5 overall. The NSA is wiretapping the full audio content of everyone in the Bahamas, a small, stable, peaceful democracy, almost entirely devoid of any threat of terrorism. But that’s just the beginning, NSA as also collecting every single piece of telephony metadata from Mexico, Philippines, and Kenya, and the full audio content of one additional country, which he chose to redact.
Cryptome speculate the country is Afghanistan.
They find 3 likely candidates, Afghanistan, Iraq or Pakistan, but believe the redacted country is Afghanistan.
