The Surveillance Catalog (Where governments get their tools!)

http://j.mp/rrrXYN (WSJ)

   "Documents obtained by The Wall Street Journal open a rare window into
    a new global market for the off-the-shelf surveillance technology that
    has arisen in the decade since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11,
    2001.  The techniques described in the trove of 200-plus marketing
    documents include hacking tools that enable governments to break into
    people's computers and cellphones, and "massive intercept" gear that
    can gather all Internet communications in a country."
