An article in the WSJ this morning told the story of a change in the way the National Counterterrorism Center can use government databases. "This is a sea change in the way that the government interacts with the general public." - Chief Privacy Officer of the Dept of Homeland Secuirty.
NCTC is now allowed to obtain copies of govt databases to "fish" for terrorists that were previously only accessible for probable cause. This includes flight records, casino employee lists, names of citizens hosting foreign exchange students and others.
The WSJ article is subscription-only. This post points to the new "guidelines" for the NCTC.
No more "probable cause" requirements for data searches by the Dept of Homeland Security...
