Title: "General Michael V. Hayden," former NSA director.
The following came out yesterday (Sunday). The day before that, I had issued a clarification about Main Core by explaining that Main Core is not limited to some 8 million but rather covers every American and even every person of record in the U.S. (CAPITALISTS PLAN TO RUIN THE INTERNET FOR EVERYBODY ELSE FOR MORE PROFIT IN MORE CONSOLIDATED HANDS: MONOPOLY.)
Add to it all the data sucked in by NSA around the world, and the U.S. is attempting global, total information awareness. If you think you're free in some other nation, think again. Globalization is about the plutocracy coming to rule everywhere with an iron fist of political correctness.

On November 14, 2002, the New York Times published a column by William Safire entitled "You Are a Suspect" in which he revealed that DARPA had been given a $200 million budget to compile dossiers on 300 million Americans. He wrote, "Every purchase you make with a credit card, every magazine subscription you buy and medical prescription you fill, every web site you visit and every e-mail you send or receive, every bank deposit you make, every trip you book, and every event you attend — all these transactions and communications will go into what the Defense Department describes as a 'virtual centralized grand database.'" This struck many members of Congress as too close to the practices of the Gestapo and the Stasi under German totalitarianism, and so, the following year, they voted to defund the project.
However, Congress's action did not end the "total information awareness" program. The National Security Agency secretly decided to continue it through its private contractors. The NSA easily persuaded SAIC and Booz Allen Hamilton to carry on with what Congress had declared to be a violation of the privacy rights of the American public — for a price. As far as we know, Admiral Poindexter's "Total Information Awareness Program" is still going strong today.
Oh, it is definitely still going strong.
