Letter: Privacy Concerns Derailed Carnivore Anti-Terror System
Regrettably, a post 9/11 attempt to put just that software in place (the lamentably-named Carnivore system) was decried and derailed by privacy advocates. Thus, we are tragically vulnerable to yet another lesson from the terrorists, who yearn to give us the ultimate privacy of the grave.
Perhaps this disaster in the making merits some documentary and congressional attention from those whose true mission is to save American lives, rather than sacrificing them for the sake of partisan ambition.
