      that there would need to be a court order for any action to be taken in regards to an individual's records.  Doesn't  it work the way a phone tap works? Isn't it fairly common for law enforcement to get court orders to examine phone call records and phone GPS information in criminal cases?

      As for private contractors, they are not only a security risk, but a huge rip off of taxpayer dollars.  But the Republicans will never agree to change their "private enterprise" initiatives regardless of the harm to the country or the economy.
