Monolithic Intelligence Agency Collecting Info On Every American To Predict Crimes

US spy agencies

Back in March Infowars noted that new guidelines put forth by the Obama administration will allow US spy agencies, under the umbrella of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), to keep records on innocent Americans without oversight for up to five years.

The rules on data retention were relaxed Following the 2009 Christmas day underpants bomber debacle. US representatives immediately called for the NCTC’s authority to be expanded, saying that there was not enough communication between intelligence agencies.

We warned that changes in such rules would aid the already vast spying architecture that the federal government has aimed directly at the American people.

This week, a report in the Wall Street Journal issues the very same warning, noting that the NCTC can use the data it collates from every US intelligence agency’s database, and analyze it to to predict possible criminal behavior of any U.S. citizen.

The WSJ report notes how a head “privacy officer” at the Department of Homeland Security explained to the Obama administration that the new privacy busting powers provided to the NCTC would bring about a “sea change”.

From now on, citizens interacting with the federal government are subjected to a procedure where the first question asked is”Are they a terrorist?”, according to the DHS official.
