thats nothing new, they just applyed it to the web.

the same tech has been and IS being used to monitor ALL the phone conversations that take place within the us AND to monitor hot spots around the world. (huge mainframes search for key words within the phone relays and main trunk lines that go to overseas locations. (they have been doing this for about 20 years or so.)

once a keyword is found the computers record and flag the call, usally these calls are ignored but say the word assanate is keyed ojn in a state or city where the presadent is staying, or bomb, exspolsive ect.. in iraq with us embassy,, you get the idea. oh and just becuase this is ilegal don't think they aren't doing it.

Plus, add to the phone conversations: emails and even faxes! Yup, they know what everyone is doing, and have been, as said above, for the last 20 years or so.
