Surveillance laws meant to be broken

Greg Palast in an op-ed at BuzzFlash reminds us that government surveillance is not the half of what we should be worried about. The real threat is privatized data-mining and the main villian is Choice-Point who collects the data legally for "commericial" purposes and then sells it to our government, who are legally forbidden to collect it themselves, for their databases. Just another end run around the laws meant to keep the government out of our private lives and another nail in the coffin of our civil rights.
