Who needs George Orwell

1984? You've got to be kidding. Who needs Orwell's 1984 when we have the Federal Bureau of Investigation:

The FBI appears to have adopted an invasive Internet surveillance technique that collects far more data on innocent Americans than previously has been disclosed.

Instead of recording only what a particular suspect is doing, agents conducting investigations appear to be assembling the activities of thousands of Internet users at a time into massive databases, according to current and former officials. That database can subsequently be queried for names, e-mail addresses or keywords.

I don't know what else to say except "Just f'ing lovely".
