NSA Agents watch Porn in a Special Room to Find Hidden Terrorist Messages

Scrolling through and scrutinizing nightmarish footages of prisoner beheading, children sexual abuse, attacks on American militia, and similar disturbing galleries seems like a totally repulsive act to a common man.

However, if you are associated with the National Security Agency (NSA) or CIA then watching hardcore videos and ‘jihadist’ porn is a part of your daily routine. In fact, NSA has devoted an entire area called the special porn room where agents scrutinize boobs to safeguard national interest.

Why do they need to do that? Well, the job of NSA agents is to analyze the pornographic footages that suspected radicals and terrorists watch because embedding encrypted, hidden messaged in such clips is a widely utilized tactic.

It was made clear by the documents leaked by Edward Snowden that the NSA monitors porn habits to some extent and the sexually explicit material is so massive that a room has been dedicated for it, according to The Daily Beast.

An ex-intelligence officer who participated in counterterrorism operations revealed that “it’s mostly porn.” Another ex-intelligence officer informed that a closed room has been devoted specifically for watching porn footages.

However, it’s not a relaxing and exciting task at all and this is why NSA employs counselors to help agents deal with the aftereffects of this sort of intense exposure to the traumatizing material. Watching child sexual abuse is definitely not enjoyable, points out a former official.
