New Leaked Documents Reveal NSA Spying on Gamers

Share this post

Did the National Security Agency spy ... on gamers? New documents from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden reveal American and British spies went looking for potential terrorists who were playing online video games. ABC News reports they weren't going to be content looking for needles of information in haystacks of emails and phone call metadata so American and British spies also went looking for terrorists in the fantasy land of online video games - like World of Warcraft and Second Life. This latest revelation from classified documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden says intelligence officials worried bad guys could exist as avatars or elves and talk to each other in code. But the documents don't say they actually found any terrorists in these potentially target-rich environments.
