In recent years, the traditional right has had to move rightward to stop its voters going over to Marine Le Pen. Watching Le Pen and former prime minister François Fillon on television, watching Fillon address a rally of five thousand people in Nice in the final days before the first-round election, and talking to ordinary people who said they were likely to vote for either of these two candidates, I often felt like I was listening to a French version of the Brexit and Trump campaigns, with many of the same fears about foreigners and globalization eroding the livelihoods of citizens.

NSA ends surveillance tactic that pulled in citizens' emails, texts

Added: 29.04.2017 0:23 | 2 views | 0 comments


The U.S. National Security Agency will no longer sift through emails, texts and other internet communications that mention targets of surveillance.
The change, which the NSA on Friday, stops a controversial tactic that critics said violated U.S. citizens' privacy rights.
The practice involved flagging communications where a foreign surveillance target was mentioned, even if that target wasn't involved in the conversation. Friday’s announcement means the NSA will stop collecting this data.
“Instead, this surveillance will now be limited to only those communications that are directly ‘to’ or ‘from’ a foreign intelligence target,” the NSA said in a statement.
