Well, I was right. The government did NOT stop the Total Information Awareness (TIA) program when Congress cut it's funding citing privacy issues. They just swept it into a classified NSA program... you know, where we aren't allowed to know anything about it.

For the record, both Newsweek and the Christian Science Monitor independently reported that TIA was never halted, as well...

"US plans massive data sweep: Little-known data-collection system could troll news, blogs, even e-mails. Will it go too far?"

You really, really owe it to yourself to read about TIA and/or listen to the interview clips available online as part of the "No Place to Hide" documentary. It's captivating stuff. Basically, the government is operating in this gray area where they take consumer databases and mine through them for interesting bits of implicating information about you.

So... let's review: T 'N A, good. T I A, bad.

The American Civil Liberties Union responded today to a stunning new report that the NSA has effectively revived the Orwellian "Total Information Awareness" domestic-spying program that was banned by Congress in 2003.
