Soon, they will know everyhing about us:
“In the small town of Bluffdale, Utah, not far from bustling Salt Lake City, the federal government is quietly erecting what will be the crown jewel of its surveillance empire. Rising up out of the desert landscape, the Utah Data Center (UDC) – a $2 billion behemoth designed to house a network of computers, satellites and phone lines that stretches across the world – is intended to serve as (hold your breath) the central hub of the National Security Agency’s vast spying infrastructure.
“Once complete (the UDC is expected to be fully operational by September 2013) the last link in the chain of the electronic concentration camp that surrounds us will be complete, and privacy, as we have known it, will be extinct” (“Everybody’s a Target in the American Surveillance State,” rutherford.org, March 26).
The NSA's assault on the Fourth Amendment was greatly accelerated with the blanket surveillance of President Bush's "war on terror." It has only gotten worse under President Obama and Eric Holder. The abuse of power is not a partisan issue.
