It’s been revealed that the U.S. government is secretly spying on its citizens using an advanced surveillance programme. Software called TrapWire allegedly has access to all security cameras across the country. Documents revealed through Wikileaks claim the software uses the collected data to monitor people via facial recognition. Censorship and technology campaigner Aaron Swartz says people’s every move online and on the street is now being watched.

A secret surveillance program known as TrapWire was revealed by WikiLeaks last week, but continuing distributed denial of service attacks have in turn eliminated access to the site for many people.

RT Web Producer Andrew Blake broke the story last week and is back to bring up the facts about an effort to blanket America in a state-of-the-art surveillance system.
