DoD Spies on U.S. Citizens

Another amazing move towards a more fascist America: the Department of Defense is going to start tracking the movements of U.S. citizens:

… the administration has been working on the creation of the world’s largest computer system and database, one with the ability to track every credit card purchase, travel reservation, medical treatment and common transaction by every citizen in the United States.

I should note that this effort is run by a convicted criminal:

In some ways, Poindexter is the perfect Orwellian figure for the perfect Orwellian project. As a man convicted of falsifying and destroying information, he will now be put in charge of gathering information on every citizen. To add insult to injury, the citizens will fund the very system that will reduce their lives to a transparent fishbowl.
