Britain's surveillance agency GCHQ, with aid from the National Security Agency, intercepted and stored the webcam images of millions of internet users not suspected of wrongdoing, secret documents reveal.

GCHQ files dating between 2008 and 2010 explicitly state that a surveillance program codenamed Optic Nerve collected still images of Yahoo webcam chats in bulk and saved them to agency databases, regardless of whether individual users were an intelligence target or not.

High Chancellor Cameron will not be pleased this information is out.

There are always idiots around who are anti-establishment for the sake of it. Unless you have something constructive to add to a debate, don't bother.

If you have an alternative, stand as a candidate and let the people decide.

I bet goddamn Nazis were saying the same thing to the opposition before they decided it's easier to execute and send to camps than tolerate annoying anti police state people.
