Washington’s new massive snooping plan – ‘biosurveillance’
WASHINGTON – First there were satellites in the sky that could read license plates from space.
Then there were cameras on every major street and highway.
Then there were full-body scans at airports.
Then came the proliferation of drones over the skies of America.
Barack Obama announced today the next phase of government national surveillance – with a budget of billions.
It’s called “the National Strategy for Biosurveillance.”
The announcement came in the form of a short press release from the White House press secretary today:
“As a nation, we need to protect the health and safety of our people from naturally occurring or intentional threats. Early threat detection and sustained situational awareness are critical to saving lives and improving outcomes when there is a national health emergency. The administration’s new National Strategy for Biosurveillance aims to unify national effort around a common purpose and establish new ways of thinking about providing information to enable better decisionmaking.
“The strategy promotes an all-of-nation approach that brings together federal, state, local, and tribal governments; the private sector; non-governmental organizations; and international partners to identify and understand threats as early as possible and provide accurate and timely information to support life-saving responses. The strategy calls for focusing on the most important information, and shaping the enterprise to meet that need, so that we can do more with less.
