But Bush did it anyway...

Total Information Awareness (TIA) was a program from the Information Awareness Office (IAO) proposed by Iran/ Contra veteran Poindexter:

The Information Awareness Office is a mass surveillance development branch of DoD's DARPA.. [it's] stated mission [is] to gather as much information as possible about everyone.. [records used by IAO include] Internet activity, credit card purchase histories, airline ticket purchases, car rentals, medical records..

Privacy Concerns kill TIA

A Senate ..bill passed unanimously on July 18, 2003 explicitly denies any funding to TIA research.. The Pentagon office that was developing vast computerized terrorism surveillance system would be closed and no money could be spent [on] spying tools against Americans on U.S. soil
