    Yes, sadly it does appear the zombified populace will grin and bear it. And this helps explain why so many Americans are acquiescing to Big Brother...

    I don't understand the reference to "other Nations", since this is a story about a US agency holding information on US citizens.

    It's unfortunate, and its especially disappointing that the national security apparatus is growing stronger rather than weaker a decade after 9/11. There still seems to be no particular constituency which can oppose these measures, at least with a Democratic president.

    As a practical matter I wonder if it would be possible to limit the situations in which the retained data could be accessed, creating a situation analogous to when records are sealed but not destroyed.

    Yep.

    Don't expect any assistance from the scumbags in the federal judiciary. They are the reason the goddamned federal government is a behemoth.
