.. Clapper Insists Internet Data Mining Deliberately Targets Only ‘Non-US Persons’

.. Patrick Goodenough

.. (CNSNews.com) – The covert mining of data from the world’s major Internet firms provides invaluable intelligence information and deliberately targets only “non-U.S. persons,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said late Thursday. His statement implicitly acknowledged that this was not necessarily watertight , however, as Clapper also said measures were taken to minimize the collection or distribution of any information about “U.S. persons” that may be “incidentally acquired.”

.. The reports came on the heels of an earlier one, also by the Guardian, disclosing that the NSA has been collecting data about regular phone calls made by millions of Americans.

… my thoughts …

.. I can understand a lot . The basic premise of data mining , I know that I understand . But there is a certain point at which our civil liberties begin to be compromised . Have we reached that point ? I do not know ? But we are getting there .
