Submission + - Senate report: post-9/11 intelligence out of control (

wdef writes: A US Senate report has concluded that a multibillion-dollar intelligence program — set up by the Dept of Homeland Security in the wake of 9/11 — targeted innocent civillians, produced very little useful data and has ballooned out of all control. This is despite predictable feeding-frenzy spending on big screens, data mining software and Chevrolet Tahoes. Why build one when you can have two at twice the price? Note the US Senate decides to look at this across the safe political interval of 10 years.
