Google "One result of the US government's battle with Google over a week's worth of searches is an increased awareness over the data kept by all of the major search engines. Each time we use Google, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves, or any other search engine, there's a record created of the search term used along with our IP address. All of the reputable search portals keep the data private. However, if someone armed with a subpoena wants to find out what you've been searching for, there is not a whole lot you can do to stop them."

Bad as life is under King George, there is no legal offense called "wasting Echelon staff time". You also might keep in mind that programs like Echelon are joint US-UK efforts, and look to your own house; King Tony is at least as threatening because he's less stupid but just as committed to the neocon cause.

If the EU is really "holier" than the US (and I sincerely hope they are-- I LIKE Europe) let's see a SERIOUS investigation, complete with indictments, of the leaders who looked the other way regarding the secret CIA prisons in Poland and Bulgaria.
