In 1998 with the available technology then, SOCOM already gathered so much through the Able Danger data mining program
http://www.historycommons.org/timeli...ams=ableDanger

Imagine what it gathers now with proliferation of social media, personal computing devices, crowdsourcing, millions hours+ drone video feed, and so on. On the other hand, the amount of data and the inevitable noise must be brain numbing. I forgot who said this, but we need for more solid analysis now than ever versus collection

If I could go back to 2009 when I first became aware of the existence of bitcoin, I might be inclined to mine them. However, crois-le ou non, I don't really care for an excess of wealth.

Investing in bitcoins is somewhat of a gamble now. It is becoming harder to mine them and eventually there will be none left to mine. When this happens new currency will be created in some shape or form.

The first standard exchange rate in 2009 US$1 = 1,309.03 BTC

Today $238.69 = 1 BTC
battcat great explanation on bitcoins. But as Eric Snowden, everything on the internet can be track. It may take longer as you stated. But that is with everything digital and within any financial supporting cell.

tracking money that funds extremists...

Which extremists?
And to what end?


...is it the people that the government labels as extremists, like returning military veterans?
...is it people like Eric Holder who sat on the fast and furious scandal?
...is it the paychecks of the IRS folks that target political opponents?
...is it the diplomats making deals with Americas enemies?
...are guilty folks being raided and brought to justice or will LE continue to flash bang infants and wrong addresses once SOCOM turns the intell over to LEA's?


Kangaroo suits are only illegal when you are in power and your political opponents are wearing them.
Extremists are those on the opposite end of MY opinion.

Just sayin'

Then there is paper wallets, thumb drives, and other forms of electronic media that can be passed from person to person - without anyone being able to trace it.
