Cambodians Say US Man Refused Entry Was a Danger to US Embassy

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Uber can track and direct millions of cars all around the world and ensure everyone gets paid then I think that there is no limit to what can be done.

If your data is encrypted who gives a shit who's looking at it? Also, unless the information passes through a system that is actively being sniffed, which is entirely dependent on geography, no-one can smell your internet farts. Or do keyword searches on your miss-spelt bom threats.

To me, that's off base in some ways, wrong, and misses the point in others.
This is from eight years ago https://www.forbes.com/sites/kashmirhil ... ba55d86668 . That's before everyone carried their personal tracking device. Data profiling is everything, it serves up all the ads you see, it's being used in the social credit score system. All the information you generate, from submitting your genetic profile to ancestry.com to the security camera at Tesco, to your late nite Grab from a girly bar to a short time hotel is available.
I recently checked some email addresses I used on https://haveibeenpwned.com/ , result, my email address and password had been hacked from a Bell Canada database I was forced to use for less than 1 month. My info, for this obsolete account, is available on the open market. If that's the case (and it is) what can a "nation state actor" have.
What makes you think your encryption is secure? https://www.cnet.com/news/wikileaks-cia ... ft-google/

And if you knew about the things we dont know about, you would be either working for Uncle Sam or sooner or later, hes gonna get you. You would have to move to Moscow to stay safe.

From: https://www.phnompenhpost.com/national/ ... -last-year
30 January 2020
Department director-general Kirth Chantharith said during the congress that local authorities had also refused entry to a US national after they were advised that he posed a threat to the US embassy.

He said the US informed Cambodian authorities that the man could bomb the embassy and so when he landed, they immediately sent him back to the US.

“The actual situation did not arise. It was just the information we received from the US, saying that if the person entered the Kingdom, it could be insecure for the US Embassy.

“He had a bad intention. Therefore, we did not allow the man to enter the Kingdom. When the person arrived, we let him go back. He arrived at our entrance gate, and we refused him entry.”

.Gov knows the name and identifiers of all folks who leave the USA and their destinations. This information is provided by airlines and TSA. Folks who are being watched or suspected or wanted can result in a denial of entry somewhere else.

Ya'll need to keep in mind that in a giant secured basement somewhere in the USA the fastest computers in the world analyze each and every bit of electronic information that travels on a public network everywhere. If Uncle Sam wants you, alive or dead, sooner or later he will get you. Aint like the old days, good thing they dont care about old fat stoners like me.
I think to say that there are computers which analyse each and every bit of information everywhere is a bit of an exaggeration, however, I once had a friend who worked in one of Microsoft's national headquarters. I would occasionally pick him up from work and I once noticed a couple of men in full military uniform walking around. When I asked my friend about them, he said there was a military base right underneath the complex. Apparently it was a kind of open secret among the employees there, although no-one was allowed to go down there and it was kept very much separate from the main buildings. The soldiers wouldn't come up to use the canteen or mingle with the Microsoft employees for example. Only occasionally would you see them walking around. It was all very hush hush and kind of top secret / James Bond esq.

Now I know it's not unusual for there to be secret military bases, but I always thought that to have one directly beneath Microsoft's main headquarter complex is a little fishy. Why the need for it to be exactly there?

Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns—the ones we don't know we don't know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones.

Wise words :wink: ?

Because no one can have an unclassified computer system faster or more sophisticated than Uncle Sam, nor can folks have software that he cant hack, nor can one have codes that he cant crack and when you read how Google has reached a certain milestone in Quantum computing, you can rest assured that Uncle Sam is looking right over the shoulder of the researchers.

Because further in these MIcrosoft and Google basements are pimple faced, Mountain Dew slurping nerds making a million dollars a year off of Uncle Sams money busily doing things with computers that only they understand, and arent allowed to talk about. Becasue for what the NSA does, specialized tools, software and storage are required above and beyond what is commercially available. Remember how some small Israeli company hacked an Iphone in two days? Dollars to donuts the NSA was involved.

And you can rest assured that Uncle Sam sees all. They just dont talk about it. Thats why Snowden in in Russia, otheriwse he would be in the Florence Supermax. I have heard that contractors and employees are shown a video of that place as part of the hiring process.

Remember, Satans greatest weapon is the denial of his existence.

All of the above doesnt make me a paranoid loon, becasue Im just a loon who finds that shit fascinating on a stoner basis. Like when some dude is driving down the road in the passenger seat and Uncle Sam drops a giant knife on his head from 20,000 feet turning him into chunks. You wont catch me looking at the sky because Im worried, but maybe I can capture it on my cell phone and go viral.

Ive always wanted to send an email to someone with the key words and see if some guys with suitsandsigs show up to check. Dudes, I was just joking about plutonium, damn you guys are soooooo serious.
