It would seem the Department of Justice’s FBI‘s violation of civil rights has no limits as the Agency issues an RFI for a tool that can monitor social network data to identify and assess potential threats to the U.S. Please see the article at URL http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9224235/FBI_seeks_social_media_monitoring_tool?source=CTWNLE_nlt_datamgmt_2012-02-22.
The FBI has begun searching for a tool that will allow it to gather and mine data from social networks like Facebook, Twitter and blogs to access data and identify potential threats to the U.S. This means they will be monitoring your and my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Microsoft Live, Yahoo, eBay, Craigslist and other profiles, not to mention the hundreds of thousands of blogs like this one to determine if we are a threat to the security of the U.S.
I challenge the Obama Administration, U.S. Congress, Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Defense, and the Supreme Court of the United States to justify their position to have the authority to threaten the security of our privacy as citizens of the United States of America and residents of the States, territories, and commonwealths under the Constitution of the United States of America and the Declaration of Independence of the Colonial Continental Congress?
With the Department of Defense‘s National Security Agency spying on all international communications including those emanating from and to the United States, including its territories and commonwealths, the Department of Defense has exceeded its authority to spy on US citizens, enterprises, corporations, businesses, foundations; and non-profit, philanthropic and religious organizations.
My paramount question is “Is the Government of the United States more interested in protecting its own security than the security of the Peoples of these United States, Territories, and Commonwealths?”
