    N.S.A. has increasingly made use of a secret technology that enables it to enter and alter data in computers even if they are not connected to the Internet, according to N.S.A. documents, computer experts and American officials.
    The technology, which the agency has used since at least 2008, relies on a covert channel of radio waves that can be transmitted from tiny circuit boards and USB cards inserted surreptitiously into the computers. In some cases, they are sent to a briefcase-size relay station that intelligence agencies can set up miles away from the target.

    ^The “interesting” point is “since at LEAST 2008”. Remember the discussions and court rulings on thermal imaging, hyper-sensitive microphones, wiretaps, cell phone interceptions? The history of spying on citizens reveals a lot more abuse by “conservative thinkers” (not necessarily Republicans btw, “conservative” isn’t always directly “political”, but a mindset, like the Inquisition and witch trials, a long, long, history.)
