The FBI doesn't necessarily have to rely on spy databases or phone records to collect vast amounts of information about suspects — it might just have to ask a travel company for help. Forbes understands the FBI is using info from Sabre, the world's largest travel data holder, to conduct surveillance around the world. Officials have reportedly asked the company to "actively spy" on targets, even while they're in the midst of travelling.
#Comment: While the westerns keep screaming "China bad! China-Tech very bad!" like silly spoiled kids, their own total surveillance apparatus keeps spiralling out of control. Just when they seemingly achieved their age old "full-spectrum dominance" through "total information awareness" vision, "full spectrum insanity" through "total information corruption" are taking down the entire house of cards in record time.
