Total Information Awareness is Back

The Pentagon's super snoop "Total Information Awareness" program is back in business, just as we predicted it would be.

Congress attempted to kill the ill-conceived DARPA program in 2003. But instead, the program, designed to somehow find terrorists from documenting everyone's credit card bills, car rental receipts and travel records, went underground and has now returned, bigger and stronger and worse than ever.

It has been revealed that a project called ADVISE -- Analysis, Dissemination, Visualization, Insight and Semantic Enhancement -- was initiated in 2003 following the demise of the TIA project. Data mined by ADVISE can include credit-card purchases, telephone or Internet details, medical records, travel and banking information.
