Only Qwest Didn't Capitulate
by angus at 12:34 pm EDT, May 11, 2006

I only read USAToday on the can in hotel rooms. This morning I read something that I knew was going on but didn't want to face. This is important stuff. America cannot hold the moral high-ground without checks and balances.

Apparently, the NSA is most interested in the "Social Networks" that who you call when exposes. I wonder if they have mapped our social network yet ;) The other thing that concerns me about this is that the NSA basically provides their data mining service to other branches of government.

The America I know and love is in jeopardy. We must hold our leaders accountable for their actions, insure transparency and preserve checks & balances in government! - NSA secret database report triggers fierce debate in Washington

The furor threatened to ensnare the nomination of Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden to head the Central Intelligence Agency. Hayden, director of the NSA from 1999 to 2005, led the agency when the database project was launched and built.

I've heard a lot more about Hayden as an Air Force General than that he was the long-time director of the NSA! I didn't think folks generally worked at the Director level for more than one major spy agency in a career. Yikes!
