The National Security Agency has acknowledged in a new
classified briefing that it does not need court authorization to
listen to domestic phone calls.
Rep. Jerrold Nadler, a New York Democrat, disclosed this week
that during a secret briefing to members of Congress, he was told
that the contents of a phone call could be accessed "simply based
on an analyst deciding that."
If the NSA wants "to listen to the phone," an analyst's decision
is sufficient, without any other legal authorization required,
Nadler said he learned. "I was rather startled," said Nadler,...Hit and Run quoting CNet
What's a "terrorist"?
...Like Dr van Someren, Andrew Fernandez, chief scientist with Cryptonym
of Morrisville, North Carolina, had been probing the presence and
significance of the two keys. Then he checked the latest Service Pack
release for Windows NT4, Service Pack 5. He found that Microsoft's
developers had failed to remove or "strip" the debugging symbols used to
test this software before they released it. Inside the code were the labels for the two keys. One was called "KEY". The other was called "NSAKEY".
reported his re-discovery of the two CAPI keys, and their secret
meaning, to "Advances in Cryptology, Crypto'99" conference held in Santa
Barbara. According to those present at the conference, Windows
developers attending the conference did not deny that the "NSA" key was
built into their software. But they refused to talk about what the key
did, or why it had been put there without users' knowledge...--Ticker quoting Heise Online
THAT item was dated 1999.
Think again: Nineteen ninety-NINE. Hint: BEFORE 9/11, BEFORE GWBush.
That was the Clinton Regime, remember?

New GUI Windows NT 4.0 Server and new GUI Windows NT 4.0 Workstation was released 1995, NOT 1996, same year as Windows 95. Alpha, Beta, and RC (Release Candidate) versions were available before that to any IT folk who wanted to field test.
Windows NT 3.1, 3.5, and 3.51 (Server AND Workstation (WFW GUI)) were released earlier 1990s.
OSs are usually in development for at least ~5 years BEFORE release.
OS developer companies (MicroSoft, Apple, Novell, etc.) usually had/have multiple OSs in development at the same time for staggered laddered releases...5-8 years in advance.
It is MOST likely NSAKEY was actually in the OS(s), not just the Service Packs or HotFixes. This would definitely predate ~1999.
NSA was formed ~1952.
ARPANET (the "birth" of "the internet") was a late 50s, 60s, 70s phenom.
NSA KNEW the power and future of ARPANET.
The Cold War was raging until Reagan brought down The Wall.
What all this means (do the math) is that NSA could have set this up as far back as mid 1980s...even before the S&L debacle.
I personally believe there was hardware-embedded firmware software and OS software on the first commercially released PCs and in the first OSs with NSA spyware...period. Of course, without obtaining and reverse engineering every OS written for commercial application (MSDOS, DOS, Dr.DOS, OS/2, LANtastic, etc.), I have no proof...just educated and experienced conjecture.
Also study protocol history: ethernet, ATM, Frame Relay, X.100, X.500, especially layered protocol history beyond physical and data link layers (network, transport, session, presentation, application layers).
A reading of major RFC Request For Comment protocol development stage papers will divulge extensible "openings" in standards allowing "inserts" of code.
Remember the early major players: IBM, DEC, XEROX, most universities, pre-breakup behemoth AT&T, etc.. Then comers MicroSoft, Apple, etc. They were and are all part of the corporatocracy complex.
The NSA has been the sociopathic chronic liar for decades. It's like that smarmy kid you always hated and never trusted...you just always knew he was half bent and there was something not quite right.
