United States intelligent community spends each year Billions of dollars to eavesdrop on emails, credit card transactions, listening to world leaders phone calls and other things that we might not even be aware of.The US National Reconnaissance Office launched a top-secret surveillance satellite into space Thursday evening and the official emblem for the spy agency’s latest mission is really weird indeed.
“You may want to downplay the massive dragnet spying thing right now,” Chris Soghoian, the chief technologist at the American Civil Liberties Union, tweeted Thursday. “This logo isn’t helping.”
According to a top-secret budget document released by Snowden and first reported on in August, the NRO is in the midst of modernizing their signals intelligence, geospatial and communications system to replace current capabilities.
Looking at the NROL-39 logo, people could be forgiven for mistaking it for a version of the Lovecraftian elder god Cthulhu, who wants to swallow the Earth whole. But that is not the only National Reconnaissance Office emblem with an interesting spin on the space-spying theme: others include Masonic motifs, superhero ones and a few more that, frankly, defy easy classification.
