Talk about turning the constitution on it’s ear. It’s already been done. While you were whipped up in the terrorist frenzy over 911 these practices were being put into place. If you think it just happened because of the attacks and not planed before them you have no idea of product development and life cycles. These technologies took years to develop, refine and implement. Not a nation state reaction to a terrorist attack.
