I have a question for all you spy types out there. I was re-reading the alleged NSA memo that the Observer published yesterday and was wondering what this particular passage meant:
In RT, that means a QRC surge effort to revive/ create efforts against UNSC members Angola, Cameroon, Chile, Bulgaria and Guinea, as well as extra focus on Pakistan UN matters.
Obviously there is a lot of spook speak in this sentence. My untrained reading of it though focuses particularly on the phrase "efforts against". Does that mean only snooping efforts or something more? What is a "QRC surge effort"? This memo could just be calling for increased vigilance in already existing snooping efforts. But it could also be calling for specific types of information to be gathered, such as information that could be used as leverage against the named countries and their representatives.
