The NSA Actually Named a Program Skynet


Skynet actually exists. The Terminator movies weren’t lying to us. Run for your lives, protect your loved ones, and pray your last name isn’t Connor. Well, you really don’t need to worry about it unless you are a super shady type, at which point, Skynet is coming for you.

From Gizmodo:

Malevolent undertones of aspirations to unchecked aggression be damned, I guess, because Skynet is real. A report from The Intercept today detailed how the NSA’s Skynet program uses metadata to pick out potential terrorists from bulk data collection. (You know, the kind of bulk data collection ruled unlawful by a court yesterday.)

So the future is real, we are all gonna die, and it is only a matter of time before SKynet goes haywire and takes over the world. Have a great week!
