    that the government took over the NOC (Networking Operating Center) in San Fran. Where about 15% of all Internet traffic goes through. Our government filtered it all. They said hey let us filter it, plugged the lines into their servers. All emails, everything. One person that came out. Outed this. It is assumed this happens everywhere.

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      Spying on the Homefront

      9/11 has indelibly altered America in ways that people are now starting to earnestly question: not only perpetual orange alerts, barricades and body frisks at the airport, but greater government scrutiny of people's records and electronic surveillance of their communications. The watershed, officials tell FRONTLINE, was the government's shift after 9/11 to a strategy of pre-emption at home -- not just prosecuting terrorists for breaking the law, but trying to find and stop them before they strike.
      The mindset of pre-emption, says Swire, is: "Check everybody. Everybody is a suspect. Everybody's phone records, everybody's e-mail is subject to government scrutiny, and if you're good, we won't bother you, and if you look a little strange, then you might get on a watch list."
