Prankster Wants to Jam NSA Lines

Cyber-warriors looking to sling a little mud in PRISM’s all-seeing eye are calling on outraged Americans to join them in disrupting the National Security Agency’s phone/email dragnet on Wednesday.

The plan, to effectively “jam up the NSA’s scanners” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, hinges on having LOTS of people reach out and touch someone with this deliberately loaded message:



“We created the site as a fun comment on the current controversy. We'd love it if the NSA saw it,” the rabble-rouser told HOH.

The group seems optimistic about its recruiting efforts — “We've seen a few tweets and comments of people saying they think it would be fun to do. We'll have to see!” the anonymous antagonist (the email ID reads “Master Troll") suggested — and none too concerned about further government interference.

“We don't have any fear of retribution,” our source stated.
