This may not be true anymore but at one time CARNIVORE was set up so the governments involved would spy on each others public and not their own (and then share the info) ... that got around the messy business of spying on their own citizens. I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong.
The whole privacy vs security issue is one with no easy answer. A huge chunk of money awaits someone who has a solution which can guarentee both. I'm somewhat pessimistic about this happening though ... if would appear the more you have of one the less you'll have of the other.

I hope I'm not the only one getting a 1984 vibe from this (and, among other things, the terror alert system). There's no need, really, for TIA. It's just way too extensive.
