Facebook - the CIA conspiracy (http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=12685)

Facebook has 20 million users worldwide, is worth billions of dollars and, if internet sources are to be believed, was started by the CIA.

The social networking phenomenon started as a way of American college students to keep in touch. It is rapidly catching up with MySpace, and has left others like Bebo in its wake.

But there is a dark side to the success story that's been spreading across the blogosphere. A complex but riveting Big Brother-type conspiracy theory which links Facebook to the CIA and the US Department of Defence.

The CIA is, though, using a Facebook group to recruit staff for its very sexy sounding National Clandestine Service.

Checking out the job ads
does require a Facebook login, so if you haven't joined the site - or are worried that CIA spooks will start following you home from work -check them out on the agency's own site.


The story starts once Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had launched, after the dorm room drama that's led to the current court case.

Facebook's first round of venture capital funding ($US500,000) came from former Paypal CEO Peter Thiel. Author of anti-multicultural tome 'The Diversity Myth', he is also on the board of radical conservative group VanguardPAC.

The second round of funding into Facebook ($US12.7 million) came from venture capital firm Accel Partners. Its manager James Breyer was formerly chairman of the National Venture Capital Association, and served on the board with Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm established by the Central Intelligence Agency in 1999. One of the company's key areas of expertise are in "data mining technologies".

Breyer also served on the board of R&D firm BBN Technologies, which was one of those companies responsible for the rise of the internet.

Dr Anita Jones joined the firm, which included Gilman Louie. She had also served on the In-Q-Tel's board, and had been director of Defence Research and Engineering for the US Department of Defence.

She was also an adviser to the Secretary of Defence and overseeing the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which is responsible for high-tech, high-end development.

It was when a journalist lifted the lid on the DARPA's Information Awareness Office that the public began to show concern at its information mining projects.


Wikipedia's IAO page says: "the IAO has the stated mission to gather as much information as possible about everyone, in a centralised location, for easy perusal by the United States government, including (though not limited to) internet activity, credit card purchase histories, airline ticket purchases, car rentals, medical records, educational transcripts, driver's licenses, utility bills, tax returns, and any other available data.".

Not surprisingly, the backlash from civil libertarians led to a Congressional investigation into DARPA's activity, the Information Awareness Office lost its funding.

Now the internet conspiracy theorists are citing Facebook as the IAO's new mask.

Parts of the IAO's technology round-up included 'human network analysis and behaviour model building engines', which Facebook's massive volume of neatly-targeted data gathering allows for.

Facebook's own Terms of use state: "by posting Member Content to any part of the Web site, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to facebook an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license to use, copy, perform, display, reformat, translate, excerpt and distribute such information and content and to prepare derivative works of, or incorpoate into other works, such information and content, and to grant and authorise sublicenses of the foregoing.


And in its equally interesting privacy policy: "Facebook may also collect information about you from other sources, such as newspapers, blogs, instant messaging services, and other users of the Facebook service through the operation of the service (eg. photo tags) in order to provide you with more useful information and a more personalised experience. By using Facebook, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred to and processed in the United States."

Is the CIA really providing the impetus and the funding behind the monster growth of this year's biggest dot com success story? Maybe only the men with the nice suits and ear pieces can answer that.

While every fact Conspiracist reports is true it is all meaningless on so many levels.

FB is a see what your friends think about Miley Cyrus site and nothing more or less.

If the CIA wants to waste their time sifting through T's of data to find out what's going on on American Idol who cares?

No one posts their DL info or IRS info on FB and if they do they deserve to be exposed in public for the "dumbasses" they are.

You can't do anything on the internet with out it being traced back to you by those who wish to do so.

I get tired of hearing complaints about security on FB ( not singling you out conspiracist, people whine about it constantly).

If you don't want your info out there stay off the internet. It's the way the net works. If you don't want your children trolled by pedophiles don't allow them to post pictures of themselves in skimpy clothes.

Every one should know by now, if you post it on FB you better plan on anyone on earth having access to it. If you don't want people to see it don't post it there!

Besides, why would the CIA go to FB to get info they already have on you? IRS, DL, SS, Medical records, address, phone#, and on and on it goes. They already have all that info on all of us. It would be silly for them to search for any of that on FB.

Yes, it is meaningless on so many levels. I just came across that article while I was doing some reading. Not saying, anyone should believe any of it.

But in any case, about FB...just like any social networks, why would anyone be that dumb to put personal information (i.e. SS#, credit card info, whatever) is behind me. Especially, when just about half the globe can see it.

About Miley Cyrus....who cares?

Who knows why they would post that kind of info. I'm still trying to figure out why it is that the first place I go upon starting my laptop is FB?

What attracts us to that ignoramous site is what I'd like to figure out?

Well, I used to have an account, but I deleted it a year ago. Way too much crap you have to delete one by one. If they had a button, where you can delete it all at once, maybe I would have stayed.

FB isn't really a bad site. I don't put anything that anyone would want to know....not that, my real friends don't already know already. And, besides....I hardly play those lame games like Farmville and whatever is there now.
