The Bush administration said yesterday that it plans to start using the nation’s most advanced spy technology for domestic purposes soon, rebuffing challenges by House Democrats over the idea’s legal authority.

Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff said his department will activate his department’s new domestic satellite surveillance office in stages, starting as soon as possible with traditional scientific and homeland security activities — such as tracking hurricane damage, monitoring climate change and creating terrain maps.

  1. Next thing you know will be what you don’t know – at least the press, as biased as it is, is still able to obtain this kind of information and report it. Soon, we will know nothing at all.

  2. I just left this at another blog but it applies equally here:

    I just can’t believe this shit, it doesn’t ever end because we let it go on and on in the name of security or terrorism, or whatever people use as an excuse to tolerate this blatant manuever to impose total control over the masses. See what I wrote at

    I can only wonder if we can wake up in time.
