 Bush's Secret Spying on Americans  Excerpts: So what's the real explanation for all the secrecy about the overall structure of the so-called Terrorist Surveillance Program? The chief reason, glucotrol xl overnight delivery especially for the excessive secrecy around the data-mining operations, glucotrol xl overnight delivery appears to be Bush’s political need to prevent a full debate inside the United States about the security value of these Big Brother-type procedures when weighed against invasions of Americans' privacyBush knows he could run into trouble if he doesn't keep the American people in the dark. Glucotrol xl overnight delivery In 2002, glucotrol xl overnight delivery for instance, glucotrol xl overnight delivery when the Bush administration launched a project seeking “total information awareness” on virtually everyone on earth involved in the modern economy, glucotrol xl overnight delivery the disclosure was met with public alarm. The administration cited the terrorist threat to justify the program which involved applying advanced computer technology to analyze trillions of bytes of data on electronic transactions and communications. The goal was to study the electronic footprints left by every person in the developed world during the course of their everyday lives – from the innocuous to the embarrassing to the potentially significant. Bush’s aides argued that their access to this electronic data might help detect terrorists, glucotrol xl overnight delivery but the data could prove even more useful in building dossiers on anti-war activists or blackmailing political opponents. Glucotrol xl overnight delivery A targeted individual would have almost no privacy in the face of an all-knowing government. Despite the administration’s assurance that political abuses wouldn’t happen, glucotrol xl overnight delivery the capability would be a huge temptation for political strategists like Karl Rove who have made clear that they view anyone not supporting Bush’s war on terror as a terrorist ally. In 2002, glucotrol xl overnight delivery the technological blueprint for this Orwellian-style project was on the drawing board at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, glucotrol xl overnight delivery the Pentagon’s top research and development arm. Glucotrol xl overnight delivery DARPA commissioned a comprehensive plan for this electronic spying – and did so publicly. “Transactional data” was to be gleaned from electronic data on every kind of activity – “financial, glucotrol xl overnight delivery education, glucotrol xl overnight delivery travel, glucotrol xl overnight delivery medical, glucotrol xl overnight delivery veterinary, glucotrol xl overnight delivery country entry, glucotrol xl overnight delivery place/event entry, glucotrol xl overnight delivery transportation, glucotrol xl overnight delivery housing, glucotrol xl overnight delivery critical resources, glucotrol xl overnight delivery government, glucotrol xl overnight delivery communications, glucotrol xl overnight delivery” according to the Web site for DARPA’s Information Awareness Office. The program would then cross-reference this data with the “biometric signatures of humans, glucotrol xl overnight delivery” data collected on individuals’ faces, glucotrol xl overnight delivery fingerprints, glucotrol xl overnight delivery gaits and irises. Glucotrol xl overnight delivery With this knowledge at its fingertips, glucotrol xl overnight delivery the government would have what it called “total information awareness” about pretty much everyone. Masonic Eye:  The Information Awareness Office even boasted a logo that looked like some kind of clip art from George Orwell’s 1984. The logo showed the Masonic symbol of an all-seeing eye atop a pyramid peering over the globe, glucotrol xl overnight delivery with the slogan, glucotrol xl overnight delivery “scientia est potentia, glucotrol xl overnight delivery” Latin for “knowledge is power.” Though apparently unintentional, glucotrol xl overnight delivery DARPA's choice of a giant white pyramid eerily recalled Orwell's Ministry of Truth, glucotrol xl overnight delivery "an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white concrete, glucotrol xl overnight delivery soaring up, glucotrol xl overnight delivery terrace after terrace, glucotrol xl overnight delivery 300 metres into the air." The all-seeing Masonic eye could be read as "Big Brother Is Watching." Former Vice President Al Gore and some civil libertarians noted these strange similarities both in style and substance to Orwell's totalitarian world. "We have always held out the shibboleth of Big Brother as a nightmare vision of the future that we're going to avoid at all costs, glucotrol xl overnight delivery" Gore said. Glucotrol xl overnight delivery "They have now taken the most fateful step in the direction of that Big Brother nightmare that any president has ever allowed to occur." Besides the parallels to 1984, glucotrol xl overnight delivery the administration’s assurances about respecting constitutional boundaries were undercut by its provocative choice of director for the Information Awareness Office. The project was headed by President Reagan's former national security adviser John Poindexter, glucotrol xl overnight delivery who was caught flouting constitutional safeguards and federal laws in the Iran-Contra scandal of the mid-1980s. Poindexter was the White House official who approved the transfer of profits from the sale of missiles to Iran’s Islamic fundamentalist government to Nicaraguan contra rebels for the purchase of weapons, glucotrol xl overnight delivery thus circumventing the Constitution's grant of war-making power to Congress. Glucotrol xl overnight delivery Under U.S. Glucotrol xl overnight delivery law at the time, glucotrol xl overnight delivery military aid was banned to both Iran and the contras. In 1990, glucotrol xl overnight delivery Poindexter was convicted of five felonies in connection with the Iran-Contra scheme and the cover-up. Glucotrol xl overnight delivery But his case was overturned by a conservative-dominated three-judge appeals court panel, glucotrol xl overnight delivery which voted 2-1 that the conviction was tainted by congressional immunity given to Poindexter to compel his testimony to Congress in 1987. Though Poindexter's Iran-Contra excesses in the 1980s might have been viewed by some as disqualifying for a sensitive job overseeing the collection of information about nearly everyone on earth, glucotrol xl overnight delivery DARPA said it sought out such committed characters to run its projects. "The best DARPA program managers have always been freewheeling zealots in pursuit of their goals, glucotrol xl overnight delivery" the agency's Web site said.

Glucotrol xl overnight delivery Bush.] 'Scrapped' Program When the “total information awareness” project was disclosed, glucotrol xl overnight delivery public outrage forced the Bush administration into retreat, glucotrol xl overnight delivery ousting Poindexter and supposedly scrapping the massive data-mining program. What is now apparent, glucotrol xl overnight delivery however, glucotrol xl overnight delivery is that the Bush administration simply took many of these data-mining features and put them under the rubric of what’s known generally as the Terrorist Surveillance Program, glucotrol xl overnight delivery or as administration insiders call it, glucotrol xl overnight delivery “the TSP.” The data-mining component of the operation is considered so sensitive that in December 2005 when Bush acknowledged the TSP’s warrantless wiretapping, glucotrol xl overnight delivery he continued his silence about the data-mining aspect.That distinction is at the heart of the dispute about Gonzales’s testimony.
