A SNOOP BY ANY OTHER NAME . . .
    #1592976 - 05/30/03 02:12 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Renaming the Total Information Awareness (TIA) program to Terrorist Information Awareness, the Pentagon recently released a congressionally mandated report on the threat to privacy rights and potential ineffectiveness of the broadly criticized TIA cyber-surveillance system. In response, the ACLU and other concerned groups from across the political spectrum pointed out that many privacy concerns have not been addressed and urged Congress to continue its vigorous oversight of new government spying powers and technologies.

The Pentagon's report was mandated under legislation sponsored by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) that required the Pentagon to release a report within 90 days dealing with the threats posed by TIA to privacy rights and civil liberties and concerns that the system would be practically unusable.

Technically, TIA would use "data-mining" and complex, ever-shifting mathematical formulae to sift through highly personal information in databases around the world in what many say is a vain quest to effectively create a high-tech crystal ball.

The ACLU put together its own report asking critical questions about TIA, many of which were not answered in the Pentagon's report. Among them: how can TIA be effective with such a high false positive rate deflecting scrutiny away from real terrorists? Is current technology is up to the task demanded of TIA? Will TIA mirror the evolution of other bureaucracies and drastically outpace its initial mandate -- eating up more and more resources and furthering the systematic surveillance of everyday Americans?

Even if TIA is kept on a short leash, the ACLU asked, would that make a difference in how Americans are affected by the implementation of a seemingly omni-present surveillance apparatus?

Read the ACLU's report on the TIA program

Look at the ACLU's online feature on the TIA Program

this has already been emplemented...escelon, canrivore and green lantern.... the problem is that they can sit near your house and even determine what you hear on the radio, watch on tv or view on your computer with out getting wire tap warrants and crap like that....durring the clinton/lewinski hearing there was a brief mention of a technology known as tempest....where is the ACLU on that one

I just heard on the news yesterday about a grant given to a San Diego university to develop a camera that could isolate suspicious looking people out of a crowd.

We need to figure out how to not "look suspicious," asap.

I drove the sppedlimit one night and looked suspicious....went too fast another and was suspicious and violating the law, drove 25 in a 45 and looke even more suspicious....we need to stop the university and the cops from determining what suspisious is....and prevent that camera frrom ever being used....

Here's an idea--get pictures of different people involved (working on the camera, policy makers, police chiefs) and send copies to them with a detailed description of the suspiciousness of those photos.
