Lockheed Awarded $1 Billion to Spy on You

I feel safer already:

The FBI has awarded a nearly $1 billion contract to Lockheed Martin to help create a massive computer database of people’s physical characteristics as part of an effort to better identify criminals and terrorists. The FBI wants to use eye scans, combined with other data, to help identify suspects. The overall deal is worth between $850 million to $1 billion and could run as long as 10 years, said Thomas Bush, the FBI’s assistant director of the Criminal Justice Information Services Division.
