Subject: Attorney General Secretly Granted Gov. Ability to Develop and Store Dossiers on Innocent Americans
CJH    12/16/2012 4:14:16 PM

"Earlier this year, Attorney General Eric Holder granted the center the ability to copy entire government databases holding information on flight records, casino-employee lists, the names of Americans hosting foreign-exchange students and other data, and to store it for up to five years, even without suspicion that someone in the database has committed a crime, according to the Wall Street Journal, which broke the story.

Whereas previously the law prohibited the center from storing data compilations on U.S. citizens unless they were suspected of terrorist activity or were relevant to an ongoing terrorism investigation, the new powers give the center the ability to not only collect and store vast databases of information but also to trawl through and analyze it for suspicious patterns of behavior in order to uncover activity that could launch an investigation."

The MSM went ballistic when Bush Jr. got Congress, since resinded, to pass legislation that only had the potential for this when read by paranoids.  Now Obama goes and does it without consulting Congress, and there is not a peep out of the MSM.
Once again, the MSM bias is showing.
