Listening vs Datamining

In all the hub-bub about the NSA, FBI and God knows who else spying on ordinary American citizens, peace groups and journalists, keep mindful of the use of ‘listening’ or ‘wiretapping’ – Bush says that the US is Not Listening in on Domestic Calls. The hair to split here is an active analyst listening to a call versus diverting the internet backbone or entire swaths of the telephone system directly into the NSA and then datamining it. One is done at the time of surveillance – the other is kept for later analysis.

    Well I was going to send a thank you note. But I guess I won’t now. 😛

    Once again we are screwed and the blame runs off the Administration’s oily backs due to word choice. Covering their asses. Covering their asses with their FACES
