N.S.A. Collecting Millions of Faces from Web Images

This is from the "Relax, the NSA has your back and is here to protect you in spite of yourself" file. The NSA has been collecting millions of images by intercept every day for facial recognition from email, social media, video conferences, and just about every other source imaginable. Another day, another revelation.

It is not clear how many people around the world, and how many Americans, might have been caught up in the effort. Neither federal privacy laws nor the nation’s surveillance laws provide specific protections for facial images.
