The other guide states that a “partner” called LITHIUM — which according to the Intercept, is the agency’s code name for AT&T — oversees building visits at the facility.Inside the building are at least three “4ESS switches,” which are used to route calls across different phone networks.
There are no windows and no lights — making for an eerie scene once the sun goes down.A massive, heavily fortified skyscraper that has puzzled New Yorkers for years — sitting windowless and unlit in Lower Manhattan since 1974 — is reportedly hiding a very dark secret.On the surface, the ominous structure — known as the “Long Lines Building” — serves as a giant telecommunications hub for the New York Telephone Company, which is an AT&T subsidiary.In one instance, an April 2012 memo showed that NSA engineers working under the BLARNEY program were tapping in on a line at the UN mission in New York.This directly led to the “collection against the email address of the U. General leading the monitoring mission in Syria,” the memo said.After a series of surveillance operations targeting anti-Vietnam War activists, “domestic terrorists” and “foreign radical” suspects — including Martin Luther King and Muhammad Ali — led to tighter controls on intelligence gathering, the NSA implemented a new program called BLARNEY, which was first exposed by Snowden in 2013.
According to the Intercept, NSA documents dated between 20 indicate that TITANPOINTE served as one of BLARNEY’s “core sites” — and that equipment was being used at the 33 Thomas Street address to keep tabs on long-distance phone calls, faxes, internet voice calls, video conferencing and other forms of internet communication.
After its construction, questions and rumors swirled for years about the enigmatic structure.
According to a New York Times article from 1994, the Long Lines Building served as AT&T’s “giant Worldwide Intelligent Network” and directed an average of 175 million phone calls each day.
But a recent investigation conducted by The Intercept indicates that it might actually house a covert surveillance mega-center, where millions upon millions of phone calls, faxes and emails are intercepted daily by the National Security Agency.
“This is yet more proof that our communications service providers have become, whether willingly or unwillingly, an arm of the surveillance state,” said Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the liberty and national security program at the Brennan Center for Justice.
“Rather, we simply respond to government requests for information pursuant to court orders or other mandatory process and, in rare cases, on a legal and voluntary basis when a person’s life is in danger and time is of the essence, like in a kidnapping situation.” Mordor, #nyc .
