Privacy Update: Federal and State Intelligence Coordination goes ahead

The Associated Press has an article about the Terrorist Threat Information Information Center (TTIC). If you remember the Total Information Awareness Project that was killed by Congress, well, this is one of its replacements.

Of course, we knew that this administration had not sworn off data mining. I think data mining in and of itself is harmless if done for a legitimate reason. It is the risk of abuse of the system that is disturbing.

And then there's the Multi-State Anti-Terrorism Information Exchange.
