Yeah it's a little much... I'm just glad that
"This program does not involve the NSA listening to or recording conversations."
It's in the article.
Yeah I'm a little concerned about that this type of thing will be used in the war on drugs, along with the government the newspapers and talking heads want to scare you too....with some kind of Orwellian nightmare and that's just not what it is.
But..yeah... I have to agree, doesn't sound right and I think they need to knock it off and work on our border, a terrorist could slip in and I'm amazed it hasn't happened yet.
I'm actually more concerned about a general at the CIA though at the same time I'm optimistic because it's not like the CIA was doing a good job before. Sort of a wierd feeling.
