Lawmakers want Internet sites to flag 'terrorist activity' to law enforcement

Social media sites such as Twitter and YouTube would be required to report videos and other content posted by suspected terrorists to federal authorities under legislation approved on Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

The measure, which could be introduced to the full Senate as early as Monday as part of the 2016 intelligence authorization bill, is an effort to help intelligence and law enforcement officials detect threats from the Islamic State and other terrorist groups.

It would not require companies to monitor their sites if they do not already do so, said a committee aide, who requested anonymity because the bill has not yet been filed. The measure applies to “electronic communication service providers,” which includes email services such as Google and Yahoo.

The bill, passed by the committee in a closed session, is modeled after a federal law that requires online firms to report images of child pornography and to provide information identifying who uploaded the images to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The center then forwards the information to the FBI or appropriate law enforcement agency.

Google, Facebook and Twitter declined to comment on the measure, but industry officials privately called it a bad idea.“Considering the vast majority of people on these sites are not doing anything wrong, this type of monitoring would be considered by many to be an invasion of privacy,”said one official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the provision has not yet been introduced publicly. “It would also be technically difficult.”

Anyone care to predict where this is going? This along with other "rules" is going to be another way to get rid of the first amendment.  Do these people ever sleep?

Key word *suspected*

If you are a veteran, own a firearm, take medication for depression or don't agree with the official story in any way then you must be a suspicious person. With this administration, definitions change all the time.

Yes, the destruction of the language is vitally important to the controllers. The VA has done a lot to further their aims in disallowing veterans the ownership of firearms by simply turning them in to the feds along with their relatives. I think we've slid farther down the slope than many think we have as far as databases and people willing to do the bidding of the ptb.
