The Times cited NSA documents, computer experts and U.S. officials in its report about the use of secret technology using radio waves to gain access to computers other countries have tried to protect from spying or cyberattacks.

 

   The NSA called the effort an “active defense” and has used the technology to monitor units of the Chinese Army, the Russian military, drug cartels, trade institutions inside the European Union and sometime U.S. partners against terrorism such as Saudi Arabia, India and Pakistan.

 

   The NSA said the technology has not been used in computers in the United States.

So much for us Americans living in the free world. This is just the start of modern day warfare. This country wont stop until we the American people have a civil war and take our government over. I hope I live long enough to see our government dethroned and tossed out into the real world,with obamacare are their insurance, like they try to impose on many Americans, but they are except from. Give them some of their own medicine. Then start the entire government system over from scratch without one single person thats ever held a political spot be allowed back into any office. Run the government for the people, by the people!

"This country wont stop until we the American people have a civil war and take our government over."

No need for a civil war. Use your computer and become an online political activist. There are many newspapers in the United States including corrupt OHIO that allow you to post information and educate the masses.
