The Pentagon's massive program to institute unprecedented governmnet surveillance of US citizens, the Total Information Awareness program, is no longer operative. Good news? Not quite: Same program, new name: it's now the Terrorism Information Awareness program.
From the WaPo:
DARPA conceded in a statement that the "program's previous name, 'Total Information Awareness' ... created in some minds the impression that TIA was a system to be used for developing dossiers on U.S. citizens.
...so the solution is simple, and so typical of this administration: Don't change the program or its aims at all, just give it a nice, voter-friendly name. Bah.
(via CalPundit, and probably noted with derision by eveyrone else by now...)
