Das andere Amerika vs. Ashcroft

Unter dem Kriegsget/rommel und Geschrei überhört man fast, dass es jenseits des Atlantik auch noch das andere Amerika gibt: das mit den Freiheiten und Bürgerrechten usw. Die Senatoren Patrick Leahy, Russell Feingold und Maria Cantwell haben ihre Stimme erhoben und eine umfangreiche Anfrage zum Thema Total Information Awareness, Data Mining etc. an den honorable John Ashcroft gerichtet.

Derselbige hinwiederum war mit seinem Spitzelprojekt "TIPS" vor ein paar Monaten hübsch an die Wand gefahren.

Aus der Anfrage der Senatoren

3. Admiral Poindexter's Total Information Awareness Project
(TIA). According to the Department of Defense, the Defense Advanced
Research Project Agency (DARPA) has established the Total Information
Awareness (TIA) Project to develop technologies for rapid language
translation, commercial transaction data mining, and interagency analysis
and decision-making tools.

(A) To what extent are you and the Department of Justice consulting or
collaborating with Admiral Poindexter or the Department of Defense in
designing and implementing TIA surveillance tools and related programs?

(B) Have any TIA generated or developed technologies been delivered to the
Department of Justice and, if so, (i) are any being used? (ii) describe the
purposes for which they are being used; and (iii) are any of the tools for
data mining and pattern recognition?

(C) TIA has programs called Genoa I and II. Has this program been
delivered in whole or in part to the Department of Justice and, if so, (i)
is it being used? (ii) Describe the purposes for which it is being used;
and (iii) is this a tool for data mining or pattern recognition?

(D) TIA has a program called EELD (Evidence Extraction and Link
Discovery). Has this program been delivered in whole or in part to the
Department of Justice and, if so, (i) is it being used? (ii) Describe the
purposes for which it is being used; and (iii) is this a tool for data
mining or pattern recognition?

(E) TIA has a program called Genisys. Has this program been delivered in
whole or in part to the Department of Justice and, if so, (i) is it being
used? (ii) Describe the purposes for which it is being used; and (iii) is
this a tool for data mining or pattern recognition?

(F) TIA has a program called TIDES (Translingual Information Detection,
Extraction and Summarization. Has this program been delivered in whole or
in part to the Department of Justice and, if so, (i) is it being used? (ii)
Describe the purposes for which it is being used; and (iii) is this a tool
for data mining or pattern recognition?

(G) Is the FTTTF coordinating its work in any way with the TIA?

(H) What safeguards, if any, do you believe should be included in any data
mining tools developed by TIA to ensure the accuracy and reliability of the
information collected and stored in databases? Have you recommended such
safeguards to the Department of Defense?
