Guidelines for access, retention, use, and dissemination by the National Counterterrorism Center and other agencies of information in datasets containing non-terrorism information.
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...
Since when does this Commie govt follow laws or rules. Period.
Be very worried.
We are all livestock owned by the feral government, now.
