1 comment to Don't Quack With That Metadata Canard

  • Someone else pointed out (maybe on an earlier post here?) that “metadata” is what provides the “signals” for “signature” drone strikes. Over the last decade, generalized and vague indicators have been deemed actionable electronic intelligence – leading to all sorts of military and police misadventures. When the press briefing starts with, “We had reason to believe…”, they’re probably talking about metadata. :/
