Based on a privacy compliance review from last November recently obtained by Reuters, the purpose of the project is to "collect information used in providing situational awareness and establishing a common operating picture." Whatever that means.

We could have one 9-11 per month, and it would be less harmful to our country than what our government is doing in the name of “homeland security”. This has to end, now.....

Barry’s civilian Red Army. Once Americans get their government back, we need to do away with the DHS as soon as possible.

Serious question...
Is Free Republic on the Obama watch list?
If not, why not?

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be anyone in our government who is willing to call treason what it is and impeach the bastard.

LOL. Welcome to the Obama-Axelrod-Jarrett Opposition Research Program brought to you by the Tax Payers of America and directly benefiting the DNC and the Obama for President Campaign.

I'd be really worried about us, if I found out that they weren't watching.

It may not be on the obama watch list, though I personally believe that it is. But I know for sure that is monitored by the Secret Service.

What will happen next is the Obama Empire will open up an unlimited funded payable account for political snitches.

This will be the next “stimulus”.

Anybody can get an instant direct deposit by informing HS of acts of sedition.

Well, I don't think there's any question that we're being monitored, and have been, for a very long time. Even before Bush created the DHS. It's what Big Brother does.

I wonder if these increasing reports, or leaks if you will, are themselves part of a strategery to tamp down opposition.

Also, looking forward to the mouthy Tim Robbins lamenting the 'chill wind blowing through the country.' I'll post it as soon as he steps up to the deliver the spiel.
