Smile - For The NSA

It has been revealed that America's National Security Agent is collecting millions of images of faces from web searches each day. They are reportedly being used to build a sophisticated facial recognition program and are alleged to be accessed through its global surveillance operations including the MYSTIC phone tapping program.

The New York Times reported that documents leaked by Edward Snowden, famed for releasing details of the NSA's snooping on the internet usage of Americans, originating from 2011, show that the NSA is actively intercepting 'millions' of images each day. Of these, around 55,000 are said to be of a sufficient quality to be used for facial recognition.
