MEXICO CITY, – Pressured by a civil lawsuit, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS by its initials in English) was forced to publish a manual of operation, 2011, which includes the list of more than 300 words you use to monitor “terrorist” activities in social networks, among which are the name of Mexico and a dozen other cities or states whose use is regarded as suspicious by the authorities of the northern neighbor.
The case dates to February 2011, when DHS announced it would begin implementing a program of monitoring the content of media, including social networks, online forums, blogs , pages, web and even messaging services such as messenger .
The program would be implemented by individuals with fictitious identities to create profiles that allow them to spy on users of social networking and would last five years.
But a civil society organization, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) filed a complaint and after a battle of nearly a year he was issued as the operating manual of 2011 as the list of over 300 keywords that are used, but has failed to stop the program.
Among the more than 300 words that the U.S. DHS systems detected as key to tracking scenarios that may compromise the security of the United States emphasizes both the name of our country, as several states and cities of the same: Mexico, Juarez, Sinaloa, Tijuana, Torreon, Ciudad Juarez, Nogales, Reynosa, Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas and Matamoros.
According to a report by the U.S. magazine Forbes, EPIC was able to force the Department of Homeland Security to publish this, and other documents by appeal to the Freedom of Information Act.
The full document, titled Desktop Binder, which is available from this weekend, provides new details about how the U.S. government patrol activities of Internet users, though, according to Forbes, it is unclear how to obtain the government agency access to the systems of Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo and Twitter for tracking words or concepts which, in its consideration are indicative of a terrorist act or threat.
