[Editor's Note: The ACLU
is not free of Illuminati influence, but thankfully, lower eschelon employees
think the organization's purpose is what it says it should be: helping to
protect Amercian Civil Liberties. If you've read the books of David Icke
or John Coleman, you already know that virtually all "think tanks"
like the Heritage Foundation or the Rand Corporation are, in fact, Illuminati
propaganda front organizations-whose job is to deceive and mislead. Look
at the bottom of this article and take notice of who's jumping up and
down assuring us that we have nothing to worry about!..Ken Adachi]
A black man visits an affluent white suburb to attend a co-worker's
barbecue. That same night, a crime takes place in the neighborhood. Police
review footage taken from a security camera installed in the area, use face-recognition
software to identify the man and visit his home to ask him what he was doing
in a neighborhood where he "didn't belong."
That's one of the futuristic scenarios offered by the American Civil
Liberties Union in its new report titled:
"Bigger Monster, Weaker Chains: The Growth of an American Surveillance Society."
Released Tuesday in San Francisco, the document warns that a combination
of technological innovation and weakened privacy protections is "feeding a
surveillance monster that is growing silently in our midst."
GPS, biometrics, cameras, wireless communication, implantable microchips
and other systems that identify, track and record people's activities need
to be held in check by legislation to protect Americans' privacy rights, the
"The kind of surveillance society that people have been talking about
since George Orwell is now technically possible," said Jay Stanley, of the
ACLU's Technology and Democracy Program,
who co-authored the report. "Too many people still do not understand this
Since Sept. 11, the government has invested heavily in technology to
combat terrorism, but the ACLU charges that many of the Justice Department's
new tools will lead to racial profiling and widespread monitoring of ordinary,

Several tests of the face-scanning software being deployed at national
airports since the terrorist attacks have shown the systems to be shoddy, for example. And database experts have expressed
about the feasibility of the Total Information Awareness system, a Herculean data
mining effort to suss out terrorist information.
"It will always be important to understand and publicly debate every
new technology and every new technique for spying on people," the report concludes.
Not everyone agreed.
"The ACLU precludes the use of new technologies because of their mere
potential for abuse and I think that's ludicrous," said Paul Rosenzweig,
a senior research fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation. "Increased
government surveillance isn't a panacea to stop terrorism, but it isn't a
