TrapWire

Main Question or Discussion Point

I don't know how many of you have heard of the recent release by Wikileaks about Trapwire, but any discussion on that? There seems to be no way in the system to fight this because it was never approved by the people in the first place.

Welcome to the forums. When posting on a current affairs topic you should post a link to what you are talking about and write a brief summary. Firstly because it's bad manners to expect others to have to look up what you're talking about and secondly because this is an international forum and what may be important news in your area of the world doesn't get a mention in others.

Another overblown conspiracy theory.

Though TrapWire Inc., the Virginia company that sells the software, would not comment on Monday, the reports appear to be wildly exaggerated. TrapWire was tried out on 15 surveillance cameras in Washington and Seattle by the Homeland Security Department, but officials said it ended the trial last year because it did not seem promising.

A claim in the leaked e-mails that 500 cameras in the New York subway were linked to TrapWire is false, said Paul J. Browne, the New York Police Department’s chief spokesman. “We don’t use TrapWire.”
