  1. FBI Busts Indiana Archaeologist With Thousands of Artifacts

    THESE BELONG IN A MUSEUM!

    The FBI has seized thousands of archaeological artifacts from 91-year-old amateur archaeologist Don Miller. It's unclear if Miller actually broke any laws with his collection, but the FBI plans to return at least some of the items to their country of origin. That could take a while considering the size and range of the collection.

  2. FBI Drones Are Engaged in Surveillance Over the U.S.

    Every move you make, every step you take...well, you know the rest.

    At a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier today, FBI Director Robert Mueller said that the agency uses unmanned drones to conduct surveillance in the United States. The admission came in response to questioning from Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA). According to Mueller, drones are used by the FBI to carry out domestic surveillance missions "in a very, very minimal way, and seldom.”

  3. Verizon Perfects the Non-Statement Statement, If They Said Anything at All, Which No One Can Prove

    Verizon isn't admitting they're handing over your phone records to the NSA, but they sure aren't denying it.

    The Guardian in the U.K. published a copy of an order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that requires phone company Verizon to hand over daily records of all calls within the U.S. as well as calls from the U.S. to other countries. Verizon has since released a statement on the matter. They don't admit to the order, but they don't deny it either.

  4. The NSA Is Getting Daily Updates Of Your Phone Records From Verizon

    This morning in "I'm pretty sure you're not actually allowed to do that" news, the NSA is collecting the telephone records of millions of Americans on a daily basis. The Guardian newspaper in the U.K. has obtained a copy of an order from judge in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court requiring cell phone service provider Verizon to turn over the cell phone call records of all domestic calls, as well as calls placed in the U.S. to a foreign country. It's the first solid evidence that the unwarranted surveillance of millions of American citizens who are not accused of any crime -- which began in the terror-panicked wake of the 9/11 attacks -- is alive and well and living in Washington under the Obama administration.

  5. FBI Forms Anti-Laser Task Force, Targets 8 Year-Olds Leaving Planetariums

    America is under attack. There's a serious threat targeting the country's air travel system that, if left unchecked, could lead to put hundreds, if not thousands, of citizens in jeopardy. What's the cause of this growing problem, you ask? Little kids waving laser-pointers at airplanes. The FBI is concerned about it, so they've created a new task force, the Laser Strike Working Group National Initiative, devoted to study and stop people who try to blind pilots with lasers.

  7. FBI to AntiSec: Man, We Never Even Met That File

    Earlier today, we reported that hacker group AntiSec had celebrated their Labor Day weekend in the traditional manner: with a barbecue, followed by releasing more than one million (1,000,001, to be precise) identification numbers for Apple products like iPhones and iPads into the wild. The hacker group claimed to have gathered these from a hacked laptop belonging to an FBI agent, but the FBI is now crying foul, claiming they have no idea what file AntiSec is talking about and stating that wherever they got it, it wasn't from the FBI.

  8. AntiSec Leaks 1,000,001 Apple UDIDs Obtained From FBI Laptop

    In what looks to be one of the worst privacy disasters yet, the hacking collective known as AntiSec has released a list of 1,000,001 Apple Unique Device Identifiers (UDIDs) that they've allegedly obtained from an FBI breach. This is supposedly from a much larger cache of 12 million UDIDs that the group managed to purloin during their raid. Not only did the files include the UDIDs, but many of these had other identifying information attached, such as usernames, cell phone numbers, and addresses. Lovely.

  10. Lawsuits, How Do They Work? Insane Clown Posse Suing the FBI

    In what is surely a sign of the end times, the Insane Clown Posse has announced that they intend to sue the Federal Bureau of Investigation over the fact that Juggalos were labeled a gang last year. The lawsuit itself isn't the sign; the sign's that this perfectly reasonable action comes from the group wondering how magnets work. Due to their classification, suddenly crimes performed by young Juggalos are considered gang activity rather than your typical slew of teenage mistakes.
