What a nightmare. The Total Information Awareness Program is now a reality, folks. And look who's in charge!

Rear Adm. John Poindexter, former national security adviser to President Reagan, is developing the database under the Total Information Awareness Program. Poindexter was convicted on five counts of misleading Congress and making false statements during the Iran-Contra investigation. Those convictions were later overturned, but critics note that his is a dubious resume for someone entrusted with so sensitive a task.

Aldridge said Poindexter will only "develop the tool, he will not be exercising the tool." He said Poindexter brought the database idea to the Pentagon and persuaded Aldridge and others to pursue it.

"John has a real passion for this project," Aldridge said.

Yeah, I'll bet he does.

Depressed and wondering what I'm going to do now. I'm so overwhelmed with everything, one of those days when I want to get real drunk.
