TOTAL INFORMATION AWARENESS11/19/02
The Pentagon has begun developing a giant computer database capable of keeping extensive files on every American. There has been little public notice or debate over this system - which will be capable of tracking every transaction: store purchases, bank info, film rentals, travel, magazine subscription, every web site visited, etc. Civil libertarians are up in arms over this program and calling on the Bush administration and Congress to stop it. Mihir Kshirsagar was on this program to explain TIA and its consequences.
