    Intelligence deputy to America: Rethink privacy

    http://www.cnn.com/2007/POLITICS/11/11/terrorist.surveillance.ap/index.html?iref=mpstoryview

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- As Congress debates new rules for government eavesdropping, a top intelligence official says it is time that people in the United States change their definition of privacy.


    Donald Kerr, principal deputy director of national intelligence, wants Americans to redefine privacy.

    Privacy no longer can mean anonymity, says Donald Kerr, the principal deputy director of national intelligence. Instead, it should mean that government and businesses properly safeguard people's private communications and financial information.

    Kerr's comments come as Congress is taking a second look at the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

    Lawmakers hastily changed the 1978 law last summer to allow the government to eavesdrop inside the United States without court permission, so long as one end of the conversation was reasonably believed to be located outside the U.S.​

    I think this about says it all about who the government really is. The corporations are about to make it official - they ARE the government.

    "...government and businesses properly safeguard people's private communications and financial information..."

    Are you friggin KIDDING ME?!

    I'll bet Bush fires him tomorrow...:rofl: :eat1:
