The War on Terrorism

Total information awareness

After having heard about how a police officer can get all data about you, we get even better news that the US government even has data protection laws that will avoid a super-might state accumulate data about every citizen (things like gun ownership, felony convictions, credit card spending pattern etc). It just seems to me that it won't be really difficult to use all the 50 databases to mine them for data (if commercial entities can do it, why not the state?). Whether, however, this will help against evil muslim terrorists is open to debate.
