    at least for Americans and legal immigrants, and that there's a "file" attached to every number. A file may link to numerous lists of suspicious behavior, or it be empty; and, who knows, maybe even too little info on a person in the database could catch the attention of some algorithm.

    James Clapper already lied about this:

    Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?
    Pressing this spook really hard on Social Security numbers could shake the faith of those who don't realize that we are all likely suspects.

    Sunday mornings are more beautiful without Meet the Press.
