U.S. Develops Urban Surveillance System

By MICHAEL J. SNIFFEN, Associated Press Writer

The Pentagon is developing an urban surveillance system that would use computers and thousands of cameras to track, record and analyze the movement of every vehicle in a foreign city.

Dubbed "Combat Zones That See," the project is designed to help the U.S. military protect troops and fight in cities overseas.

Police, scientists and privacy experts say the unclassified technology could easily be adapted to spy on Americans.

The project's centerpiece is groundbreaking computer software"


How sad this whole situation is. The US has made so many enemies throughout the whole world and even in their own country that instead of reconciling and trying to figure out why they have this problem, they are making more complicated mouse-traps.

When ever I read such articles and hear stories of what life is like now in the West, I really feel very good about the move to my country, where as bad as things could be, in the end when all is said and done, it's mine.

The weather today was great and I met up with Jeff K and Hagop (Jack) from Australia for some ice-tea and conversation.
