US planning to recruit one in 24 Americans as citizen spies

When I first read this article, I thought it was satire.

It’s true:

"Operation TIPS - the Terrorism Information and Prevention System - will be a nationwide program giving millions of American truckers, letter carriers, train conductors, ship captains, utility employees, and others a formal way to report suspicious terrorist activity."

The main difference between the TIPS informants and the Stasi is that the Stasi never got bumper stickers.

Have you published a response to this? :
