Consider this: the “Facial Recognition” Project

A friend sent me this link:

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2014/06/01/317957289/report-nsa-collects-millions-of-photos-for-facial-recognition-project

The link is from NPR (National Public Radio), and it is titled, “Report: NSA Collects Millions Of Photos For Facial Recognition Project.”

The article references a recent item in the New York times that briefly describes the “project.” In general, the NSA is accumulating data from millions of people around the world, including Americans, including, presumably, “Lefties” and “Righties,” for the stated purpose of “implement[ing] precision targeting.”

You are probably okay with this. (Or you may be afraid even to comment.) I am not. Here is my $.02 worth:
